Do we need another “Gang of 14″ solution?



The “Gang of 14” announced a deal in May 2005 to avert a Senate crisis over judicial filibusters.

History Lesson

The “Gang of 14” compromise in 2006 displeased many conservatives. Republicans controlled both houses of Congress at the time, and those involved in the compromise group agreed to take some of the party’s power options off the table in exchange for Democratic promises not to filibuster Bush’s judicial nominees except under “extreme circumstances.”

John McCain Answers Tough Question on Gang of 14

(This entry was posted on Monday, November 12th, 2007.)

Tough Question from Mike’s America

Q. Following Senator McCain’s remarks he invited questions from the group. I introduced my question by saying: “Many conservatives in South Carolina were disappointed because you and Senator Graham (McCain’s SC Co-Chairman) 1. participated in the “Gang of 14″ to block the “nuclear option” and break the filibuster of President Bush’s judicial nominees, 2. highlighted the “torture” of terrorist detainees weeks before the 2006 election and 3. Your previous stand on immigration.” I also mentioned that many conservatives felt that they “could not trust” Senator McCain and I asked: “What can you say to them so they give your campaign another look?”

His answer was direct and clear:

“If you don’t agree with the “Gang of 14″ solution then I am not your candidate and you should vote for someone else.”

Senator McCain went on to highlight the fact that under the Gang of 14 solution, the Senate did confirm conservative judges like Alito and Roberts.

He went to say “I shudder to think what would happen if we had pulled the trigger on the nuclear option and one day Hillary Clinton was appointing judges.”

He asked me: “would your blogging friends still want to blow up the Senate” if Hillary Clinton was in charge? If so, I am not their candidate!

Senate ‘Gang of 14’ may pounce on stimulus bill

Fox News has this story about how Senate Republicans and some Democrats met this morning to seek common ground on how they can improve the $819 billion economic stimulus bill.

According to the story, the lawmakers aren’t happy that the bill, passed by the House on Wednesday, contains billions of dollars for programs that arguably won’t spark much job growth.

They met in the office of Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., a moderate Democrat who has brought his colleagues together in the past on the issues of judicial appointments and energy policy.

Nelson famously gathered Republicans and Democrats in a so-called “Gang of 14” to avert a shutdown of the Senate over judicial nominations and is aiming for similar bipartisanship in the stimulus debate, Fox News reports.

Ben Nelson

One item that likely will be discussed is an amendment that would add billions of dollars to infrastructure projects. Nelson is crafting that measure with Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif, both on the Appropriations Committee.

And Nelson doesn’t want to stop there. He wants to pluck out what he says are extraneous projects in the stimulus bill to pay for the amendment. Providing hundreds of millions of dollars for prevention of smoking and sexually-transmitted disease — though they may be worthy causes — does not create jobs. Nelson even is willing to remove popular Pell Grant increases, saving them for annual spending bills later in the year.

“We need to sit down and see who owns these projects,” Nelson said, and see if they can be removed from the bill. “We need to keep (the bill’s cost in check) and see if we cant change around what’s underneath that to create more jobs.”


Politically I am a centrist, and when I see moderates from both sides of the aisle coming together and attempting to reach some sort of a compromise, I generally see that as a good thing.

Given that Democrats did win and control both houses and the White House, perhaps a “Gang of 14” solution is the best we can hope for.

From thinkprogress

Asked on Fox News today if he knew “of any Republicans on the Senate side that will vote yes” on the stimulus plan “as it stands,” Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) said he didn’t “even know how many Democrats will vote for it as it stands today. “A lot of my colleagues are not decided,” said Nelson. “They’re undecided on the bill as it is right now.”

    Another Reason to boycott Pepsi products
    Pepsi is now using its TV spots to promote the gay lifestyle. AFA asked Pepsi to remain neutral in the culture war. Pepsi refused. The company said it will continue major financial support of homosexual organizations seeking to legalize homosexual marriage.

    Pepsi gave $500,000 to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the largest and most powerful gay lobbying group in America. The company also gave $500,000 to Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). The total gift of $1,000,000 to the two homosexual activist groups was to help promote the gay lifestyle in the workplace.

    After Pepsi gave their money to HRC, HRC gave $2.3 million to oppose California’s Prop 8, an initiative which defined marriage as being between one man and one woman.

    Pepsi also forces its employees to attend sexual orientation and gender identity diversity training, where they are taught to accept homosexuality.

    Pelosi-Reid-Obama Spending Bill: $150,000,000 For ‘Honey Bee Insurance’?!

    Posted by: Matt

    I kid you not. $150,000,000 in earmarks and pork for “honey bee insurance” was stuffed into a dark corner of the latest version of the Pelosi-Reid-Obama spending / debt bill. (Full text here.) Honey bee insurance?!

    Senate Republicans released these new highlights of your tax payer dollars being spent under the guise of economic stimulus. They were also kind enough to remind us what Barack Obama had promised, swore, to the American people days ago:

    “We Will Ban All Earmarks In The Recovery Package.”
    – Barack Obama, Press Conference, 1/6/09

    Here are just six points in the bill:

    $20 million “for the removal of small- to medium-sized fish passage barriers.” (Pg. 45 of Senate Appropriations Committee report: “20,000,000 for the removal of small- to medium-sized fish passage barriers)

    $400 million for STD prevention (Pg. 60 of Senate Appropriations Committee report: “CDC estimates that a proximately 19 million new STD infections occur annually in the United States …The Committee has included $400,000,000 for testing and prevention of these conditions.”)

    $25 million to rehabilitate off-roading (ATV) trails (Pg. 45 of Senate Appropriations Committee report: “$25,000,000 is for recreation maintenance, especially for rehabilitation of off-road vehicle routes, and $20,000,000 is for trail maintenance and restoration”)

    $34 million to remodel the Department of Commerce HQ (Pg. 15 of Senate Appropriations Committee report: $34,000,000 for the Department of Commerce renovation and modernization”)

    $70 million to “Support Supercomputing Activities” for climate research (Pgs. 14-15 of Senate Appropriations Committee Report: $70,000,000 is directed to specifically support supercomputing activities, especially as they relate to climate research)

    $150 million for honey bee insurance (Pg. 102 of Senate Appropriations Committee report: “The Secretary shall use up to $ 50,000,000 per year, and $150,000,000 in the case of 2009, from the Trust Fund to provide emergency relief to eligible producers of livestock, honey bees, and farm-raised fish to aid in the reduction of losses due to disease, adverse weather, or other conditions, such as blizzards and wildfires, as determined by the Secretary”)

    Very Interesting Quote

    In light of the present financial crisis, it’s interesting to read what Thomas Jefferson said in 1802 :

    ‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    The return of soft Power

    Samantha Power, the Harvard University professor and Pulitzer Prize-winning author who earned notoriety for calling Hillary Rodham Clinton a “monster” while working to elect Barack Obama president, will take a senior foreign policy job at the White House.

    It would be fun to be a fly on the wall for meetings attended by Power and the “monster” who is now Secretary of State. Is this what Obama meant by a “team of rivals”?

    I’m glad you posed the question above!

    I can tell you that members of the military are already rallied, but it’s a silent rally. We are a disciplined group of individuals who are obedient to those in authority. We are trained to defend this country and we “NEVER LEAVE A COMRADE BEHIND.” Many of us have died defending our country.

    We are patriotic and love our country and we will band together to fight those who go against anything that would hinder our oath and mission. We are very aware of Obama’s citizenship issue and await the move of our leadership to challenge him. Apparently, the judge at Guantanamo is starting the process.

    Obama is going to attempt to change a few things that would possibly divide us within the military, which will cause many of us not to reenlist, resign our commission as officers, or go AWOL. This is what he wants! Unfortunately, some of the things that will divide us, regardless of what side of the aisle one is on, is allowing homosexuals to openly serve, and not permitting Chaplains to openly encourage Soldiers to have God/Jesus Christ part of their life.

    There is a strategy by Obama to weaken the military in numbers and in the desire to serve (new recruits) so that he can build and reinforce his so called “civilian army.” Weakening the military causes less to challenge him.

    Many of my law enforcement friends are also aware of his civilian army plan. Some of them have already formed internal groups to combat possible uprisings against those in uniform.

    We are being patient because God’s will comes first! I do see Obama being exposed daily, which looks like the wolf in sheep’s clothing is being undressed and put to shame for all to see.

    Is our country perfect, no? But I would not want to live anywhere else in the world!

    Where have we seen this type of behavior before? Let us consider ancient Babylon and Daniel’s experiences, and imperial Rome and the mandatory “worship” of Caesar. The early Christians were not thrown to the lions for religious practices, on the contrary, they were executed for CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE. The “law” was clear: Worship in any manner you desire, as long as Caesar comes first. How about the feudal kings/emperors of Europe, China, and Japan? And more recently, Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Imperial Japan, need I name more? The same old thing is happening here in America. These liberal-socialists worship the state in the very same ways and soon will require all of us to do it… or else. As for me and my house, I’ll take the “or else”.

    A $3 Trillion Government Overdose Must Be Stopped


    Meanwhile, there’s no shortage of alternative tax proposals that would truly re-ignite the economy. Former Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush economist Larry Lindsey criticized the Democrat package in Wednesday morning’s Wall Street Journal, describing it as “heavily weighted toward direct government spending, transfers to state and local governments, and tax changes that have virtually no effect on marginal tax rates.”

    Instead, Lindsey proposes a big payroll tax cut that would slice three points off the rate for both employer and employee.

    Rush Limbaugh also made an appearance in the Journal. He has a clever idea to give Obama 54 percent of the $900 billion package — equating that amount to the new president’s electoral majority — while 46 percent, which was John McCain’s electoral tally, would go to a plan that would halve the U.S. corporate tax rate and provide a capital-gains tax holiday for one year, after which the investment tax would drop to 10 percent.

    It was Sen. John McCain on Fox News last Sunday who started the stimulus revolt when he said he couldn’t support the package and called for less spending along with a large corporate tax cut. Over in the House, Republican leaders John Boehner and Eric Cantor have successfully launched an opposition drumbeat by attacking congressional Democrats rather than directly hitting President Obama.

    o Obama Officials, Wall Street Talk Bad Bank Plans

    Now all eyes will turn to Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell to see if he can keep up this drumbeat.

    Will commonsense Americans really support a massive overdose of government run amok?

    I seriously doubt it. This whole story has to be completely rethought.

    contingent variable warrants (CVWs)



    Market-Based “Bad” Bank Solution

    But then, Eureka! While perusing the website, I happened on a January 23, 2009 article entitled ” One Way to Deal with Toxic Assets ” by Louis R. Woodhill.

    Mr. Woodhill’s idea is to set up a government bad or aggregator bank to purchase toxic assets from banks at prices set by the selling banks .

    The securities purchased by the government would be put in a segregated account for each bank participating in the program.

    The account would be charged an interest rate equal to the government’s cost of funding the account and some account administrative fee.

    The interest rate charged would apply to the dollar amount of securities purchased by the government.

    In consideration for the funds the government paid the participating banks, the government would get something Mr. Woodhill calls contingent variable warrants (CVWs), which would be redeemable in cash or common stock in the participating banks.

    lately I have felt a sense of fear i have never felt before….fear of our survival as a country, a people, a democracy.

    fear for the safety and well being of m family.

    fear that we are about to see and live some imaginable horrors. something in the way of the haulicost!

    I cannot believe im even saying such things. I am abig believer that we gave grown as people and we were not capable of allowing such atrocities take place again.

    I was wrong…I have never seen so many ignorant, stupid, uncaring idiots as ive witnesses this past election. Who are these fools and were did they come from and why on Gods earth are any of them voting!
    Upon watching interviews of peoples reasons for who and why they voted its no wonder were in for it. “”””aahh , I want free gas and house…free money tooo””””” ddeerrrrr, dddddddduuuhhhh, I vote obama…ya ya change good”””

    About all I know to tell you is that we are currently in an accelerated time of the evolution of earth and mankind…For the next few years it is going to increase in the speed at which it all unfolds….For some it will be perilous and for others it will be a breath of fresh air….It all depends on individual spirituality….Have faith and be kind….It’s all going to ok.

    Steele…finally, someone at the RNC that has cajones! We need to let him know we are behind him…BUT, if he doesn’t stand up for the Republic and Constitution…YOU ARE FIRED. I see integrity in this guy as well as backbone.

  61. Tenacity Says:

    Actually, we need for him to know about the You Are Fired Campaign and appoint him honorary chairman of the campaign.

    I agree, maybe we can get him to adopt the “You’re Fired” mantra.

    Steele, used to work for fox, hes no lilly of the valley, he certainly will stir things up, I believe, and hold the weak to task….much needed to form a bonding throughout the party…

  65. susiezen Says:

    troy…have faith and be kind is the best advice, as simple as it sounds, its truth goes to heaven and back…

  66. Troy Says:

    It would have been nice to see Steele as the first REAL African American president….He is a REAL patriot whereas Obobo isn’t.

    sen. gregg HOPEFULLY will not fall for obamas so obvious trick to gain control. oh so crafty…obama has much more to gain with gregg out…he would have full control, and the bills that would pass would be CRIMINAL. please contact gregg, beg him to stay….
    I cannot wait for the mid term elections, lets hope that the 8 billion obama gave to accorn will not affect the election to come…we really need speaker paloozer OUT!!!!! granted its a ways away, but its never to early to spread the word….media wont
