O-Care Repeal, Take 2: Meadows, Budd bless it; Jones still a NO

The GOP-dominated US House passed a repeal-and-replace measure on ObamaCare today.  Twenty Republicans were NOs.  Most of them were RINOs from The left-of-center Tuesday Club.  But Kentucky’s Thomas Massie and our very own Walter Jones were part of the NO crowd, as well. North Carolinians…

#ncpol: GOP argues amongst itself on killing ObamaCare

They got their majorities in Washington on the promise to kill ObamaCare.  They got The White House too, based partially on the promise to kill ObamaCare. You’d figure the GOP — fully in the driver’s seat — would be going on a de-regulation and cutting…

Tillis: ‘Ain’t-skeered-a-no-Rush Limbaugh’!

Our junior US senator popped up in Moore County yesterday.  It was the whole package: the haircut by WeedEater, the dirty hands, and the even more horrid (F-rating from Heritage AND Conservative Review) voting record.  His talk was highlighted by what not many folks would…

Meadows praised for standing strong against ObamaCare, RyanCare

US House GOP introduces ‘ObamaCare Lite’

Remember how Coke has played with its formula over the years?  New Coke? Coke Classic?  Slightly different packaging, but the same crap.   THAT is what we’re apparently being treated to by our US House Republicans in the ol’ ObamaCare “fight.”  You remember those folks?…

Calling the GOPe bluff on ObamaCare “repeal”

We’re getting hit with all kinds of nonsense from our elected “honorables” in DC about how it might take THREE YEARS to seriously do anything about ObamaCare.  Jim DeMint, the former US senator from South Carolina and current head of The Heritage Foundation, has a…

#ncpol: Apparently hitting too close to home for lil’ Richard

It’s really something to have your veracity challenged by a guy who made up a business to conceal the fact he’s been nothing but a paid political hack all of his life.   But that’s lil’ Richard Hudson for you — arguably the least impressive, least-qualified person to…
