U.S. House votes to allow dumping of coal mining waste into streams | NewsObserver.com | Vote The Bums Out! | Scoop.it
Republicans said the bill to allow coal mining companies to dump waste into streams is part of an effort to stop the “war on coal.” They also called it a “pro-growth jobs bill.” Triangle Republican members of Congress Renee Ellmers, Howard Coble and George Holding voted for it, as did Rep. Mike McIntyre, a Democrat.

Defense Budget Would Cut Troop Pay and Benefits | Military.com

Defense Budget Would Cut Troop Pay and Benefits | Military.com | Vote The Bums Out! | Scoop.it

The U.S. Defense Department is proposing limiting troop pay raises, reducing housing allowances and cutting funding for commissary stores because of automatic budget cuts, officials said.

#OpDejaVu's insight:

Make no mistake:  These budget cuts are not the brainchild of the Defense Department.  They are the consequences the disgraceful, GOP-backed sequestration. 


Sequestration:   It's an American disgrace & another example of the hideous class warfare waged on our loyal troops and their families.    If the freeloaders in Congress still possess one iota of decency, they will come to their senses and sequestration: ASAP. 


God bless our troops.

5 Popular High-Profile Governors Face Legal Trouble

5 Popular High-Profile Governors Face Legal Trouble | Vote The Bums Out! | Scoop.it
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is joining the growing list of popular Republican governors -- many with presidential ambitions -- plagued by scandal in their administrations.

On Monday a state district judge named 12 jurors and two alternates to consider possible criminal charges against Perry. A day earlier Perry hired a high profile Austin-based defense lawyer to represent him. At the center of all this is an ongoing investigation over Perry vetoing funding for the Travis County District Attorney's office. The investigation has been called "Bridgegate West" by the Dallas Morning News, a reference to an investigation of corruption in New Jersey.

But Perry isn't alone among governors facing legal probes these days:

Boehner Gives Thumbs Down To Unemployment Benefits Deal | Huffington Post | Vote The Bums Out! | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON -- House Republicans undercut Senate legislation to extend unemployment benefits on Wednesday, pointing to criticism from state workforce agencies that argue the bill would be unworkable.

#OpDejaVu's insight:

Leave it to Speaker Boehner to find another lame excuse to sit on his political hands and do absolutely nothing but be just another worthless millionaire.  


Boehner, and the rest of the cruel, craven and callous freeloaders on Capitol Hill, get paid six-figure salaries, but they are nothing more than five-star failures.  In fact, if their lips are moving, they're probably lying.


One can only hope that voters get sick of him and his ilk, withdraw their support and withhld their votes on Election Day.
