Tea Party Express chair targets Saxby Chambliss

Amy Kremer, chairman of the national Tea Party Express and a Georgia resident, made it clear in a CNN interview today that as far as she’s concerned, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss has earned himself a primary challenge with his vote in favor of the “fiscal cliff” legislation that passed the Senate by a vote of 89-8.

“The Tea Party Express, we haven’t decided anything at this point, but I can tell you I live in the state of Georgia and Saxby Chambliss is going to be primaried. Our own senator. It’s unacceptable to have somebody who votes with the Democrats more than they do with the conservatives, and he has proven time and time again he’s all about the spending.

“And we’re a red state, we deserve a conservative senator, a conservative senator that would stand with [Sens.] Marco Rubio [R-Fla.] and Rand Paul [R-Ky.] and Mike Lee [R-Utah] who all voted ‘no’ for this bill.”

U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, also of Georgia, also voted in support of the bill, which was opposed by all eight of Georgia’s Republican congressmen.

It should be noted that the Tea Party Express also championed the campaigns of Sharron “Second Amendment remedies” Angle, who lost a winnable race against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Christine “I am not a witch” O’Donnell, who lost a winnable Senate race in Delaware.

Let’s see now… the Tea Party wants to lower taxes and cut expenses. So, they opposed a bill that would give tax breaks to the middle class and cut some government expenses. Sure, they want to extend tax cuts to high-earners also, and they want even more spending cuts. But, why don’t they first support the tax breaks and spending cuts that the Senate proposed, and they favor, then quarrel over bigger tax cuts and spending cuts later?

Those people are dangerously hostile to well-being of America and Americans.

Well, sounds like the story of the two mental asylum inmates that were going to escape by climbing over a high wall around the place. They thought and thought about how they were going to do it. Then one said, “I know. We’ll wait till night and then I’ll shine a flashlight beam and you can climb up it till you get on top of the wall. Then I’ll throw you the flashlight and you can hold it while I climb up the beam.”

“Think I’m crazy?” said his buddy. “I’ll get halfway up and you’ll turn off the flashlight.”

Old Saxby is nuts, but some of these Tea Party people are nuttier. My guess is they’ll run that nut that had you-know-what with a mule against him. Then some librul Democrat will look good by comparison and get elected.

I am a conservative Republican. I didn’t like the fiscal cliff bill. I think spending is the biggest problem. Having said that I AM A REALIST. Elections have consequences. There’s a time for principle and then there’s a time to govern. Sometimes you’re not holding a strong hand — and the Republicans aren’t. As Paul Ryan said, they’re just trying to limit the damage.

I applaud the mature and realistic approach taken by Chambliss and Isakson. I don’t know who this Tea Party bimbo is, but she needs to climb back under a rock.

Congress needs more pragmatic folks on both sides of the aisle.

At this time, they make the Democrats look good and truth be told, they are not that good themselves.

Doubt it will happen because it is DC, however one can hope that the Republicans will get themselves together and Democrats will respond in kind.

Aquagirl — “How do you get an anarchist to govern? They kind of stop being an anarchist when they do that, don’t they?”

There are countless instances of anarchic ‘governance’ during Hurrican Katrina. Rather than the lawless hellhole some people would have you believe it was, the Superdome actually spawned several small and self-supporting groups. Those who were able foraged for food, water and medical supplies, and those who weren’t particularly mobile were generally asked to watch over the infants and children while the fitter folks went ‘prospecting.’

I can’t speak for how *long-term* anarchy might work out, but there’s plenty of anecdotal (and probably some documentary) evidence that, at least in the short term, Americans will form their *own* anarchic self-supporting social structures when local government and/or services give out.

Let’s see…. Chambliss just allowed a tax increase without so much as a single budget cut, when our current budget deficit is well over a trillion per year, and our national debt is over 16 Trillion. If Republicans cannot get spending concessions in the debt limit debacle, Saxby Chambliss will not be reelected.

The President got his tax increase… and we will see in less than a year how MINUSCULE that is in the scheme of things. The U.S. has a spending problem that no amount of tax increases will fix. Republicans who vote for a tax increase without getting a single spending cut will be voted out. Democrats SHOULD be demanding the same thing of their office holders as well.

In four years, we will have a $22 Trillion national debt. The question is: how long can the U.S. maintain yearly Trillion+ dollar deficits before no one will finance our debt? Democrats are gambling that we can do it… indefinitely. Democrats are betting that our debt, whether $16 trillion or $100 trillion, will be tolerated and that the world will still finance our debt.

Moody’s, Fitch’s, etc., along with every respectable economist in the world… begs to differ. At some point, we will no longer be able to sell debt. With annual trillion+ dollar deficits, I believe we hit that point in less than 10 years. And when that happens…. no more food stamps, earned income tax credits, housing subsidies, energy subsidies, mortgage interest deductions, etc. etc. In other words, when we finally spend too much, everyone ( especially the poor) loses.

Jay likes to talk about the dysfunctional Republican party, and how they are doomed. But Democrats are spending us into unimaginable debt, and their power WILL collapse when the world no longer finances their spending. Remember, every effort by the left in Greece to maintain the status quo there has failed. No one will finance Greece’s spending any more without significant strings attached, regardless of the will of the left in Greece’s politics. Democrats in the U.S. will be similarly robbed of their power to dole out goodies to constituents, and their power will similarly fade.

In short: The Republicans may be in decline. But Democrat power relies on unsustainable deficit spending, and their influence collapses when they can no longer deliver perks to their constituents. At this point, WHEN that happens is the the only question.

Which brings us to the economic level. The deficits that Bush ran up in the years in which the country was teetering on the verge of a serious recession had the beneficial effect of righting the economy. In that sense, deficits not only didn’t matter, but were a force for economic good.

Translation: IOKIYAR

I’m for immigration control from both north of the Mason Dixon AND the Rio Grande, but the ones coming from the places you mentioned are hardly Obama supporters, and while I may not agree with their politics and imperialist colonial imperatives in coming here, they are the ones with the shekels..

Sadly, now as through the centuries, Dixie has had to import its middle class….

Now all you need to do is prove that ten years ago, GA sent Washington more money than it received, and you’ll be golden.

Good luck finding that, though.

td — “I am pretty sure Saxby beat Cleland because he was a lib hack of Jimmy Carter.”

That begs the question of how Maxie got elected to the Senate in the first place.

It appears you were not either alive or living in this state when “maxie” was elected. This was a Democrat run state in those days and “Maxie” ran on his Vet status. Soon after he was elected then his true lib side came out and when he ran for re election the state was turning Republican.

—————————————————————–

so you are saying that at DFCS they ask where they lived 10 years ago?

or that over the last 10 years she is still dealing with former residents of those states who after 10 years still don’t have a job?

or are you just making shyte up

Those are assertions & assumptions not facts. You are as usual unable to back up your rhetoric and hyperbole.

Don’t take it personal, not many on here are surprised.

If you would like to provide facts over the years of GA’s fed dollars sent out vs dollars taken in then provide information showing that the increases are directly due to your assertion then you have proven your point.

What will you say if your numbers (which you don’t have nor will present) show that GA has been taking in more than they receive even before the huge migration to the state?

I wont be waiting.

A secondhand account of your wife’s b!tching about Yankees is not fact.

I know your head is in the sand and you refuse to accept anything that is not written in leftwing publications (and you know none of them would ever do such a study).

To answer your question as to how: Caseworkers are required to ask about residency and the residential history for the Federal requirement of checking to see if a person is getting benefits from 2 different states.
