Sen. Mitch McConnell: ‘The Tax Issue Is Finished’
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. R-Ky., Sunday said he will not accept any new revenue in future deals with congressional Democrats and President Obama.
“The tax issue is finished. Over. Completed,” McConnell told me on “This Week.” “That’s behind us. Now the question is what are we going to do about the biggest problem confronting our country and that’s our spending addiction.
“We didn’t have this problem because we weren’t taxing enough,” McConnell added.
He blamed Obama and Democrats for waiting to resolve budget issues until the last minute. . . .

BUT YET--BUT YET>>>
House Republicans have wasted no time in making clear their costly defense of DOMA will not stop by passing a resolution on the very first day of Congress committing the House to defending the federal gay marriage ban, including some provisions that Democratic legislators are calling outrageous.DOMA Is The Biggest Waste Of Government Funds!!!! It should be the Right of Each and Every person to marry and raise a family with the person of their own choosing, whomever they may be.
House Republicans tagged provisions allowing their lawyers to continue to defend the Defense of Marriage Act to a document outlining the procedural rules governing this Congress and, in a 228-196 vote, the rules were adopted on Thursday, one of the very first acts in this the 113th Congress.
The lengthy document authorizes the House Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG) to continue its legal defense of DOMA in cases like Windsor v. United States, which will go before the Supreme Court this year, and to “take such steps as may be appropriate to ensure continuation of such civil actions,” and going on to say that BLAG can “intervene in other cases that involve a challenge to the constitutionality of section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act.” READ MORE!!!!
THIS IS ALSO WHY THIS PETITION IS SO VERY IMPORTANT
It takes a lot to get most of us to give a Tinker’s damn for the homophobic extremists at the Westboro Baptist Church. However, the people may be close of doing just that. Citizens are passing around petitions to have the church declared a hate group and strip it of its tax exempt status. This type of political movement targeting an unpopular vote raises all types of alarms for civil libertarians. Declaring certain groups as “hate groups” by popular demand smacks of majoritarian dominance. It also reaffirms the concerns, which I have written about previously, that hate laws are increasingly being used to stifle free speech. It is equally troubling to find the petition on the White House website.READ MORE!!!! AND BETTER YET--SIGN AND SHARE!!! THANK YOU!!!!
After all, The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not Gospel (Good News) of Intolerance and Hate--BUT OF LOVE, TRUTH AND ABOVE ALL--GRACE AND PEACE!!! IF THIS HATE GROUP Is going to continue to Misrepresent the Good News of Jesus Christ--then they must pay for it in the form of taxes. Even more Importantly, because of their protest cost grieving communities money. FOR THE COMMUNITIES THAT MUST PROVIDE SECURITY TO SAVE GUARD GRIEVING FAMILIES, FOR THE ADDITIONAL SUFFERING THAT THESE 'CHRISTIANS' DELIGHT IN CAUSING BY THEIR PROTESTS--AS IF JESUS NEVER SAID--> 'TO MOURN WITH THOSE WHO MOURN--TO LAUGH WITH THOSE WHO LAUGH.'--WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH OWES SO MANY COMMUNITIES!! IT IS HIGH TIME THAT THEY START PAYING THEIR DEBT!!!!!
