Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - Senator Tom Cuburn was on This Week with George Stephanopoulos yesterday and intimated that he was ready to accept a tax increase if Dumbocrats would put entitlements on the table. Without putting Medicare out there -- for those of you that think that the federal edifice can be preserved, which I have begun the process of thinking that is less and less likely. If you’re not going to either terminate or seriously reconfigure Social Security and Medicare -- which consume about two-thirds of every nickel the federal government has to borrow -- if you’re not going to seriously reconfigure those two things and tell people they’re just going to have to freaking deal with it, grow up, put a helmet on, life stinks, deal with it, your federal edifice is not going to survive.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – One of the things that we talk about here on this show that I think distinguishes it from others is that there is no partisan solution. First of all, the conservative does not believe there is a political solution to life. Let me repeat that. The conservative does not believe that there is a political solution to life’s problems. Life’s problems have to be experienced and worked out by individuals. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is just getting started, just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Where’s the money going to come from? Is this new woman, Janet Yellen, is she going to get in the Federal Reserve and crank out another $80 billion a month to pay for this? We have to keep the stock market going. You gotta feed the monkey, you know, man. Is she going to crank out $80 billion a month to subsidize all those that are going to sign up for the Affordable Care Act?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Here’s the headline from the magazine post: “Why the Tea Party Can’t Govern.” Here, let me give you the tease, “Something is seriously wrong with conservatism.” Let me stop right there. Damn skippy, yeah! Hello!? Conservatism is an advertising slogan. That’s what’s wrong with it. Anything that becomes an ism, you might say, is probably, going back to Frohnen’s post about “What is this Thing called Virtue?” is something that is not going to produce results that people think it’s going to produce.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Just to put this in perspective, this would mean that our mighty, gargantuan federal leviathan would have to exist on a paltry $1.2 trillion. In other words, it would have to exist on the expenditures of the last year of the Reagan administration, in 1989. Chew on that for a moment. Think about that. Then come back to me and tell me exactly how, practically speaking, this can possibly financially or numerically or mathematically work itself out. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Again, I fail to see why anyone that participates in, advocates for, and has been dreaming about shrinking the federal leviathan, why you are not taking the chance or the opportunity to hit the ramparts, to dig yourself in, and to encourage those that have a vote or say-so in this to hold the line. Folks, this is the battle we’ve all been waiting for, isn’t it? What did you think it would look like? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Now the government in the 21st century is trying to say that the health and welfare of every living soul on the North American continent is now the legislative duty and responsibility of the government of the United States. Some of us take great offense to that, see great danger in it, and do not want that principle, even though some have already surrendered on that principle when it comes to Medicare and Medicaid.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Even if everyone gets along and passes the Affordable Care Act, will Obama veto it, as he should? No, of course not, he'll sign it but for all the wrong reasons. If he signs it, he's saying that "this bill does not do damage to the Constitution" but everyone knows that it does, but so does Medicare, Medicaid, etc. Is there any chance at all that he will veto it? Yeah sure... for partisan reasons. Additions to the bill by House Republicans may force Obama to veto PARTS of the bill and send it back to be reviewed again, but that seems unlikely.
