President Obama’s visit to North Carolina highlights the failed leadership and broken promises of this administration and Senator Kay Hagan. Kay Hagan’s liberal record of voting with President Obama 95 percent of the time isn’t working here in North Carolina. If you agree, help us raise an additional $9,500 today by making a contribution here.
There are just 70 days left until Election Day and this is arguably the most critical Senate race in the country. The pundits say North Carolina is a tossup and could tip the balance of the U.S. Senate for the entire country. Now is the time to stand up for conservative principles and elect a U.S. Senator who actually represents North Carolina values. Help us reach our goal by ensuring your contribution is completed before Midnight.
Kay Hagan was waiting at the airport to warmly welcome President Obama to North Carolina this morning. This comes after Hagan has dodged questions about her support for the President and his terrible policies, like ObamaCare. Hagan was a member of the committee that helped to write the flawed law in 2009, and she has been a continued supporter of ObamaCare — even while the law is leaving North Carolina families without affordable quality health care.
Hagan has been known to literally run away from reporters asking about her lies to North Carolinians – lies like telling North Carolinians that if they liked their health care plan, they could keep it under ObamaCare – and her support for the President’s policies. And now, Hagan is showing her continued support for the President — this time in the Tar Heel State.
Kay Hagan has been a rubber stamp for President Obama in the Senate, voting with the President 96 percent of the time.
She can’t be trusted to stand up for North Carolinians and to fight for what North Carolina needs.
The internet as we know it in America is about to fundamentally change, and it’s because our politics are too broken to stop it.
On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Federal Communications Commission is about to issue new rules for internet service providers that will allow them to create “fast lanes” of service that will allow companies like Netflix and Amazon to deliver their content faster than competitors. That’s a first for American internet policy, and it’s strictly against the rules in other countries, particularly in Europe.
Allowing big companies to pay for prioritized access to consumers flies in the face of the internet’s egalitarian ideals, which allow anyone or any company free access to a vibrant market free of tolls or restrictions — allow service providers like Comcast and AT&T to start creating artificial barriers to entry, and you make it harder for the next generation of college kids to start the next Facebook or Google. As a whole, the various rules that protect these ideals are generally called net neutrality — they’re the rules that say your service provider has to treat all internet traffic equally, and shouldn’t be allowed to block, degrade, or enhance access to certain websites or services.
In January, the open Web took a major hit when a court sided with Verizon over the FCC’s net neutrality rules. The defeat meant that Verizon or any other ISP could throttle certain types of traffic in favor of others. While the FCC could appeal the ruling, the Commission is apparently not going that route.
Reuters is reporting that the FCC will not be appealing the Verizon case instead opting to rewrite the rules. In last month’s ruling, the court said the FCC had the authority to regulate broadband access. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler will reportedly be using this authority as a jumping point to bring back the non-discrimination rules found in the original net neutrality rules.
Wheeler issued a statement Wednesday detailing how he intends to rewrite these rules. In his statement, he says the court upholding the Commission’s authority to regulate broadband access will be used to accomplish three goals – enforce and enhance the transparency rule, fulfill the “no blocking” goal, and fulfill the goals of the non-discrimination rule. While the court had no problem with the transparency rule, it did smack down the latter two. Wheeler says he will work within the confines of the court’s ruling to ensure that ISPs can not block or discriminate against Internet traffic. Continue reading →
Kay Hagan’s liberal cronies in DC are on the airwaves with another false, negative attack ad and I need your immediate contribution of $35 or more so that we can continue to fight back.
These new attack ads showcase another example of Hagan’s hypocrisy. While Kay Hagan denounces the use of outside funds against her, her liberal cronies in DC are dumping another half a million dollars in attack ads to falsely attack me. Kay Hagan and DC liberals know that our message is resonating, and they will stop at nothing to save Kay Hagan’s rubber stamp of the Obama agenda.
North Carolina deserves a Senator that votes with our interests and our values. We can’t allow their financial advantage to allow them to buy another six years for Hagan. I need your help today to win this race and am counting on you to contribute here.
Phil Berger, Jr. kept his promises when he was elected as Prosecutor. He is proud of his strong record of increasing prosecutions and reforming his office. He will kept his promises and that’s what he’ll do as your Congressman. Phil Berger Jr will fight to end Obamacare and stand up for conservative principles.
“North Carolinians aren’t falling for Kay Hagan’s political game of hide and go seek with President Obama,” said North Carolina Republican Party spokesman Daniel Keylin. “They know she supports Obama’s failed liberal agenda 96 percent of the time and cast the deciding vote for Obamacare. At least the private meeting gave Hagan an opportunity to personally thank President Obama for the glowing endorsement he gave her during his visit to North Carolina.” Read more at ncgop.org
I was humbled and honored to give the Republican rebuttal last night after President Obama’s State of the Union address. Republicans have a bold vision – one that empowers the American people and doesn’t limit where you finish because of where you started.
Like you, I believe we shouldn’t spend more than we have. Republicans continue to prioritize important programs while cutting wasteful spending. Meanwhile, Obama and the Democrats continue to recklessly spend, raking in record levels of debt and deficits, and saddling you with $54,383 in debt. As a mom to three small children, I know how tough life has been for families in the Obama Economy. Our Republican policies aim to make life easier for you and your family. It shouldn’t be a struggle to put food on the table, gas in the car and money in savings.
Under Obama, gas prices have risen to $3.38 per gallon and the average family’s health insurance premiums have increased by $3,671. It’s not fair — and it’s not what Obama promised you. It’s unfair — and it’s frightening to think about what else is in store.
Last night, President Obama declared this year a year of action and has committed any and all means necessary to ram through his liberal agenda – including circumventing Congress. We need a strong Republican majority in Congress to keep Obama in check and to get our nation’s house in order.
After listening to President Obama’s State of the Union address, I’m fed up. I’m fed up with his empty promises, I’m fed up with his lies and I’m fed up with his liberal agenda. Are you?America can’t afford more spending, more debt and more government intrusion in our lives.
Food stamp rolls have been growing rapidly. But what many may not realize is that participation among able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) has been skyrocketing compared to the total number of participants. That’s just one reason Congress should reform the food stamp program in the farm bill now under consideration. In just four years, the number of able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) on the food stamp rolls skyrocketed by over 2 million. While overall food stamp use grew by 53 percent between Fiscal Year 2007 and Fiscal Year 2010 (from about 26 million to nearly 40 million), it more than doubled among able-bodied adults without dependents during this time–from 1.7 million to 3.9 million–an increase of roughly 127 percent. Food stamp spending today is roughly $80 billion, double what it was in Fiscal Year 2008.
To be blunt, I believe President Obama has broken his most important promise yet: to lead “the most transparent administration in history.” From ObamaCare to Benghazi, from the IRS scandal to the Fast and Furious scandal, the Obama Administration has continually thwarted congressional oversight and denied the American people the answers they deserve. The Obama Administration’s first instinct is to deny, distract and ignore.
Congress has a duty to thoroughly investigate these misgivings and provide a check on an Administration that thinks it’s above the law. As the Chief Watchdog in Congress, it’s my job to lead that effort. Last week, I was honored to be named the Conservative of the Year for holding President Obama and his liberal allies accountable for their gross government overreach and reckless disregard for the truth.
As a 23-year-old, I am sick and tired of President Obama taking advantage of my generation. In a photo op disguised as a “youth summit” last week, Obama yet again tried to sell ObamaCare to young people. Obama proved that he’s willing to say and do anything to buy our support when he suggested that bartenders host ObamaCare Happy Hours to get people to sign up.
Really, it’s offensive. We’re not naïve… and we’re not buying his sales pitch.
We know that the success of ObamaCare depends on young people like me signing up – and paying more – for health insurance through the exchange. Obama is banking on young Americans to make his prized liberal program work. And that’s why young people are bailing on Obama in droves. It’s time Obama told young Americans the truth about why our premiums are doubling, why we’re losing our doctors, and why we might have to choose between paying for school and paying for health care.
