    @RNCGrant

    They've received more in tax cuts than tariff impacts. You're not going to find a statement where they said the closure of North American factories was because of tariffs though. It's not even mentioned in the story on it. That's a reason you're attributing to the situation. They've bought back more in stocks to protect stock prices than they're saving in wages with their downsizing. And you defend their corporate greed.

    You're a fragile thing. You tweet more defensively than Donald Trump.
  4. From the Office of RNC Chairman James Grant Our Speaker likes to call others liars yet has only spread misinformation about the Protecting Our Energy, Environment, and Economy Act. The bill would not double tariffs on China it is not a tariff on their total carbon emission only a tariff on that which is exported into the United States. We don't take in 100% of China's carbon emissions as he would like you to believe. He also likes to pretend tariffs increased our trade deficit with China even though they haven't but he will never prove that point. Just like he won't ever prove GM outsourced due to tariffs instead of just being a greedy corporation that has received more in government bailouts over the years than their downsizing will ever save them. He's ideologically driven and when you approach reality with such a bent the reasons for things are always magically aligned with what he believes. To him, it's hypocritical to protect your country's environment from the harmful effects of foreign importation of carbon. You have to continue to let foreign exporters pollute your country at no cost to them unless you're willing to hurt your own economy in the process as he suggests to be somehow consistent. Giving an economic advantage to our domestic economy would be wrong to do. With the problems we have with our own carbon footprint why should we just take on foreign carbon at no cost? That's not reasonable and doesn't put our environment first. Foreign corporations for some odd reason matter more to him just like protecting outsourcing corporations like GM's corporate welfare. He also contends that the rebate that would counteract any rise in prices is somehow us just try to buy off the public instead of helping American families. The rebate which would be around $1100 for a family of four would far outweigh any rise in prices. If these tariffs were equivalent to the current tariffs on China which they are not the impact would only be some $60 in price rises. He only sees the rebate as a buy off and bad policy because he wouldn't be taking credit for it. Just like the Democratic party's insistence on passing along their $4.8 farmer bailout package when the Trump administration has already allocated $13.2 billion for the same purposes. Fiscal responsibility be damned his party needs to look good for elections. That's also why no Republican bill to help farmers has been brought to the floor either. Apparently they aren't good enough. The majority vote on this motion for the Protecting Our Energy, Environment, and Economy Act is going to be for debate but believe me this power hungry ideologically driven Speaker won't care. Obstructionist ideologically driven governing is more important than consensus building to him. He's not concerned about bipartisanship this bill already has more bipartisan support than the "bipartisan" climate change committee he wanted ever got which unsurprisingly failed in the Senate. If he actually cared about getting things done and working with the other party and the President we wouldn't have only 7 of the 20 bills over the last four dockets signed into law. So much time wasted. He doesn't even represent his state Arkansas well. It went 60-33 for Donald Trump but he has shown he's more apt to call the President names and condemning him before actually working with him and accomplishing the things his state voted for in Trump's agenda. They obviously wanted a border wall but when bipartisan compromise was reached on the DACA deal he'd rather shove through a clean amnesty that would never pass than actually get things done for both sides. Such weak ineffective leadership but sadly nobody has the guts in his party to call him out. Maybe they fear the retaliation of just an unhinged powerful person in their party who's quicker to tweet his rage than even Donald Trump. Who knows, but we do know Democratic voters who have waited years for House control expected a lot more results than the Speaker has delivered that is for sure.

    DNC Press Conference

    Mr. Fitzpatrick, If I can get this statement correctly, the bill was both simultaneously finished and as you said on the house floor in need of tabling to work out details to be resubmitted?

    Additionally does the DNC support ending all foreign aid?

    Why was the Tuition Tax Deduction Act brought to the floor despite being in an unfinished state? That doesn't seem like responsible leadership just a waste of time.

    So we should repeal Obamacare then and stop telling insurance companies how to run their businesses? Or do you only sometimes believe in this?

    We support the statues remaining where they are just like most Americans. We're not supporting the fringe like you do.

    Representative Goodwin says Governor Sharp is not being a true conservative for conserving Southern history. No irony in that at all.

    Just saw the highlights from the low energy Fitzpatrick town hall. So hilarious how he just ran out of there when the questions were too much for him to handle. If he thought that was hard does he think being President will be any easier? Pathetic!

    Fitzpatrick Town Hall

    Mr. Fitzpatrick, You have said in this very town hall that if an illegal commits a crime they should be deported. You've also criticized governor Lewinsky as an extremist on immigration for an executive order to do just that. Are you an extremist as well then?
