New Hampshire editorial – Democrats haven’t passed a budget since 2009

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

New Hampshire Union Leader:

As President Obama continues to shift the blame for his party’s gross irresponsibility by asserting falsely that House Republicans are putting party before country, the American people should be reminded that the Senate’s refusal to pass a budget is both deliberate and entirely political.

The Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call reported last summer that Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., was appointed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to lead the Senate Democrats’ messaging operation…

Said a Democratic aide, “He led the fight in the Senate against releasing our budget. He backed the idea that a budget paints a giant target on your back unnecessarily when it’s not going to pass anyway.”

Club for Growth PAC Endorses Sharron Angle for U.S. Senate

Monday, May 24th, 2010

WASHINGTON – Club for Growth PAC today announced its endorsement of former state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle in the U.S. Senate race in Nevada.

“Sharron Angle is everything a pro-growth, limited-government, economic conservative could ask for, and everything Washington and the country need right now,” said Club President Chris Chocola. “She was the undisputed fiscal conservative leader in the Nevada State Assembly, and she has the courage and skill to step into the same role in the U.S. Senate. Sharron Angle is the true economic conservative in the Nevada Senate race, a candid, common-sense leader with the courage to stand up against liberal spenders in both parties.”

“Sharron is Harry Reid’s worst nightmare, and Nevada’s best hope. Her courageous, honest style and principled leadership will do more good in six years than Reid’s corrupt backroom deals and trillion-dollar boondoggles could in a lifetime.”

Angle is the 12th candidate Club for Growth PAC has endorsed in the 2010 election cycle. She joins Senators Jim DeMint (S.C.) and Tom Coburn (Okla.), Senate candidates Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Pat Toomey (Pa.), and House candidates Kevin Calvey (OK-05), Tom Graves (GA-09), Tim Huelskamp (KS-01), Mike Pompeo (KS-04), Robin Smith (TN-03), Jeff Duncan (SC-03), and Tim Scott (SC-01).

Reid claims to oppose bringing back ‘assault weapons’ ban

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

The Hill last week:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will join House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in opposing any effort to revive the 1994 assault-weapons ban, putting them on the opposite side of the Obama administration.

Reid spokesman Jim Manley said the Nevada Democrat will preserve his traditional pro-gun rights voting record.

“Sen. Reid would oppose an effort [to] reinstate the ban if the Senate were to vote on it in the future,” Manley told The Hill in an e-mail late Thursday night.

It was not immediately clear whether Reid would block the bill from the Senate, but his opposition casts serious doubt on its chances. Also, Manley noted that Reid voted against the ban in 1994 and again when it expired in 2004.
