ALG President speaks out on Kagan nomination to U.S. Supreme Court 

"Elena Kagan is an unknown quantity with nothing in her record to recommend her to the highest court in the land.  She's never been a judge, and devoid of any examples, Senators will be hard-pressed to determine exactly what her judicial philosophy is.  President Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers' was withdrawn for the same exact reason, and rightly so."—ALG President Bill Wilson.

May 10th, 2010, Fairfax, VA—Bill Wilson, President of Americans for Limited Government (ALG), will be available to comment on the potential nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Elena Kagan is an unknown quantity with nothing in her record to recommend her to the highest court in the land.  She's never been a judge, and devoid of any examples, Senators will be hard-pressed to determine exactly what her judicial philosophy is," Wilson said. 

"President Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers' was withdrawn for the same exact reason, and rightly so," Wilson added. 

ALG has been a leading voice in opposition to the Appeals Court nomination of Goodwin Liu and other high profile radical nominees to the federal courts, and has become a trusted source for analysis from an independent, limited government perspective.

Shea-Porter Statement on President Obama Signing the Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act into Law

WASHINGTON, DC  – Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement after President Obama signed the Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act into law. 

Today is a great day for men and women who have served our country in uniform, as well as for the heroic people who care for them.  Disabled veterans and their families face many unique challenges, and caring for a loved one with a serious injury is often emotionally and physically exhausting. This law will provide our veterans and their family members with additional resources and support.”

The legislation, which passed the House on April 21, will help families better care for disabled or injured veterans. It will also greatly improve health care services for women veterans and will expand VA programs for veterans living in rural areas.

The Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act is supported by the American Legion, AMVETS, Disabled American Veterans, the National Military Family Association, Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and  the Wounded Warrior Project.

AFP - Palin Speaks at Michigan Summit 

Dear Friend,

Today, Sarah Palin told 1,300 roaring grassroots activists at the Michigan Defending the American Dream® Summit in Auburn Hills, Michigan that we are going to win this crucial policy battle over cap-and-trade if we keep taking our message to the American people.

She's right.  But we have a big fight ahead.

Ideologues on the Left are trying to use the tragic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to push their global warming agenda.  It's outrageous to see radical groups like Greenpeace and the Environmental Defense Fund using the tragedy of death and destruction in the Gulf to push their plan for the biggest energy tax in American history.

Majority Leader Harry Reid has already said they plan on bringing a new cap-and-trade energy tax bill to the floor of the Senate this summer.

Think about it.  Unemployment is still hovering at 10%.  Our economy is still struggling.  Americans are paying historically high taxes.  Businesses are drowning in red tape.  Government is the biggest and most intrusive it's ever been. 

And, the Obama/Pelosi/Reid answer?  Another massive government program to ration energy use, tax gasoline even higher, increase utility bills, and pile more bureaucracy on small businesses.  Raise consumer prices through the new regulations on energy use.  It's mind boggling!

In fact, President Obama spoke just 45 miles away from here today at the University of Michigan commencement, where he defended government. He has to defend it because Americans are tired of his administration's push to expand it into every corner of our lives!

At the event today, Governor Palin talked about the AFP Regulation Reality Tour™, where we're educating the American people on how the Obama administration is attempting to use the EPA to push through much of their cap-and-trade agenda just in case we defeat them in Congress.  CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

In fact, please contact your senator today to tell them to vote YES on Senator Lisa Murkowski's resolution to stop the EPA’s global warming power grab.
           
This vote will be in mid-May and already we have 41 senators who have signed on as co-sponsors.  We only need 51 votes to win. 

The week of May 10 we will be back on the road - this time in Ohio and Indiana - with more rallies and events to keep up the pressure on the Senate to pass the Murkowski resolution
For a full tour schedule click here.

The Left is hoping you and I get tired.  Their hope is misplaced.  Today, a lady named Cathy came all the way from South Carolina to be part of the Michigan Summit because she said "it's that important."  Another man, Emery, got up at 3 a.m. Saturday morning to drive 300 miles from Indiana to be part of the Summit.  And I spoke to a young couple from the farthest northern reaches of Michigan who had driven hours to "send a message" to the Left and the media. 

Michigan has faced a tough decade thanks to the liberal policies of the political elite here.  The folks I met today still believe in the American dream and know that November is Coming™.

PS:  Let's rein in the EPA by demanding that Congress vote YES on Senator Murkowski's resolution to block the EPA's global warming power grab.

CLICK here to contact your senators today with a simple message: vote YES on S.J. Res. 26 because Congress should not use an unelected bureaucracy to implement a radical job-killing, tax-increasing environmental agenda.
