9-30-13 MCRC Briefs

Maricopa County Republican Briefs

Sept 30, 2013


·       CNN Reports: A Little More Than An Hour After The Federal Government Began Shutting Down, House Republicans Have Voted To Reaffirm Obamacare Amendments they attached to to a spending bill that would have kept the government running and that the Senate had earlier rejected.
      The House also requested that the Senate convene a conference committee to work out their differences over the funding plan but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has already rejected that proposal, saying the Senate "will not negotiate with a gun to our head." The House amendments would delay the Obamacare individual mandate and eliminate health insurance premium subsidies for members of Congress, their staffs and the president.
     Shortly after midnight, the White House ordered federal government agencies to begin shutting down, furloughing thousands of workers and curtailing some services for the first time in nearly 18 years.

·       PC Jon Altmann Is Serving A A Second Term as National Vice President for Members for the Association of the US Navy.


·       Rep. Matt Salmon “For The Third Time, House Republicans Passed A Bipartisan Bill to fund the government and protect Americans from the ever-mounting and damaging effects of Obamacare. Once again, our bill keeps the government open, protects Americans from being forced into Obamacare and puts Members of Congress and the President into the healthcare exchanges they created. It seems that each day we hear about another delay or new exemption by the Obama Administration. This is not only unfair to the American taxpayer, but demonstrates this harmful law remains not ready for primetime Senate Democrats continue to offer no solutions to this problem and choose to be the Party of NO. Make no mistake, Senate Democrats are threating to shut down the government by failing to compromise with House Republicans. The moment of truth is upon them, and I call on Harry Reid to be responsible and immediately act to prevent a government shutdown.”


·       U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar: “The Senate shouldn’t run out the clock on the American people with inaction and extreme partisanship.  The American people expect Senate Democrats to work with the House and put aside the extremist ideology some Senate Democrats are engaging in.  The public doesn’t deserve the government shutdown the Democrats threaten, nor is it fair that individuals not be exempted from the impact of Obamacare. It’s time for the Democrat-led Senate to listen to the American people and stop playing politics. The House did its job, now it’s up to the Senate to pass this bill and stop a government shutdown.”

·       Floating Around The E-Mail Circuit: Food For Thought - How To Fix Congress -

1.     No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office, and receives no pay when they're out of office.

2.     Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.  All funds in the Congressional Retirement Fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3.     Congressmen/women can purchase their own retirement plans, just as all Americans do.

4.     Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.  Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5.     Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6.     Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

7.     All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/31/13.

The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congressmen/women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

This Is How You Fix Congress!  It’s about time!

·       Do Republicans Have A Plan To Stop Obamacare?

·       The RSC Steering Committee unanimously voted to support the latest House proposal to fund the government while protecting American families from the devastating consequences of the President’s health care law.  “This bill ensures that all Members of Congress and the White House will finally have to live by the same laws that have been passed, just like all Americans,” Scalise said.  “Either Obamacare is good enough that it should apply to all or it is so bad that it should apply to none.  It is time for the sweetheart deals and backroom exemptions to end.The devastating effects of the President’s health care law are not a partisan issue. Businesses see it.  American families see it.  Even union leaders like James Hoffa see this train wreck coming.  It is time for Senate Democrats and the President to get off the sidelines and work in a bipartisan way to fund the government while eliminating special political exemptions.” With 175 members, the Republican Study Committee is the largest multi-issue caucus in the House of Representatives.


·       Republican National Committee (Rnc) Chairman Reince Priebus:  “I want to applaud Republicans in the House for working to ensure all Americans are treated fairly when it comes to ObamaCare,” said Chairman Priebus. “The latest Continuing Resolution ends special treatment for big business and special exemptions for Congress. President Obama awarded big business a delay from ObamaCare; it’s only right to give the same to hardworking middle class Americans. To object to that is to object to the basic principle of fairness. While Harry Reid and his Democrat colleagues keep pushing America toward a government shutdown, the House Republicans have worked to do the will of the American people. If the Democrats reject the latest resolution to keep government running, they’ll be sending a clear message that they think they and their political allies are more important than average Americans. Americans didn’t want ObamaCare forced on them, and they don’t want a shutdown forced on them either. Once again, Democrats are unwilling to listen.”
