Jindal For President - Republicans Surrendered to Obama on Iran Deal 

Jindal for President


DENISON -- Today at a lunch event in Iowa, Governor Jindal said Republican Senators in D.C. surrendered to President Obama and ultimately helped him get approval for his Iran deal. Gov. Jindal went on to say that Senate Republicans are the only ones who are worse negotiators than President Obama. 

Governor Jindal said, "Every single Republican Senator in D.C. except for Sen. Tom Cotton supported the Corker framework. That's when Republicans surrendered to President Obama on the Iran deal.  Many have argued that bill paved the way for Obama to only need 34 votes to win.

"By endorsing the Corker-Cardin framework, the Senators allowed the deal to go ahead. Amazingly, only one Senator had the sense to oppose this.  It was not any of the four Republican Senators running for President, it was not Ted Cruz, it was Tom Cotton.  He was the only one who had the guts to stand up and say no.  The vote was 98-1 by the way.

"Here’s the real problem – Republicans in Washington got conned by the President.  The Iranians conned the President, and the President conned the Republicans in the Senate.  Senate Republicans are the only ones who are worse negotiators than President Obama."



NHDP Chair Responds to GOP Voters First Forum  

CONCORD, N.H. - Following Monday’s Voters First Forum, Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement:


“Here’s what we learned tonight. Nothing new.


Republicans want to raise the retirement age and phase out Medicare. Democrats know that New Hampshire - and America - can’t afford to go back on our promise to our seniors.


Republicans want to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which has helped thousands of Granite Staters afford health insurance. Democrats stand behind those new enrollees.


Republicans have left our workers behind. Democrats know those workers need a minimum wage increase.


Republicans don’t want to move forward on stopping climate change. Democrats know that we must preserve our land for future generations.


Republicans want to get in the way of women’s health care decisions. Democrats support women’s health.

Republican policies will leave behind seniors, the middle class, the environment, and women. Democrats support them. End of story.”


DNC Response to the Voters First Presidential Forum 

The DNC issued the following statement in response to tonight’s Voters First Presidential Forum:


"The policies of this Republican presidential field are all out-of-touch, all out-of-date, and all the same. Repeal Obamacare, reject comprehensive immigration reform, restrict access to women’s health clinics, and the list goes on and on. But this was just the preview. I’m sure Republicans will find many more ways they can hurt the middle class on Thursday night. Stay tuned.” –Holly Shulman, DNC National Press Secretary


ALG praises 34 House Republicans who said no to fast track rule 


June 11, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising 34 House Republicans who voted against a rule to bring trade authority legislation to the floor of the House:


"Today 34 House Republicans displayed an extraordinary amount of political courage by voting to deny Speaker Boehner the ability to bring fast track trade authority to the floor of the House. If Boehner had not succeeded in lobbying 8 Democrats to pull his bacon out of the fire, fast track would now be dead. Tomorrow, there will be significantly more Republicans voting against fast track as concerns about President Obama's surrender of U.S. sovereignty through the Trans-Pacific Partnership becomes fully evident. For those 34 Republicans who took a stand, today's action deserves universal praise from freedom loving Americans nationwide. They listened to their constituents."

DNC - Washington Examiner: Debbie Wasserman Schultz tears into GOP field in NH 

Debbie Wasserman Schultz tears into GOP field in New Hampshire


The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee wrote a scathing op-ed in the Concord Monitor on Saturday, tearing down the list of Republican presidential hopefuls who are visiting New Hampshire this weekend.

DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz had nothing nice to say about former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who visited the Granite State this past week and this weekend.

The nation's first primary will be held in New Hampshire.

Democrats are gearing up for a fight against Republican presidential candidates, who are just now beginning to jockey for position in the early voting states.

"We know what a Bush presidency would look like because we've seen it before," Wasserman Schultz wrote. "Policies that wreck the economy and turn back the clock on social progress. Jeb is completely out-of-touch with the American people, and he's no different than the rest of the Republican field."

Wasserman Schultz was no kinder to Walker, who she said divided Badger State residents and hurt the middle class.

"His priority has been adhering to his ideological views and pleasing the special interests that have funded his campaigns," she said.

Cruz, according to Wasserman Schultz, "embodies what's wrong with the Republican party," by serving as the "ringleader" of the Oct. 2013 stalemate over federal government funding that lead to a 16-day shutdown.

She blamed Perry's tenure as Texas governor for "some of the worst rates of income inequality in the country."

The latest polls show Walker and Bush leading the pack of GOP candidates.

A McClatchy/Marist survey found Bush with 19 percent of the vote and Walker with 18 percent. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee came in third with 10 percent of the vote.

Cruz and Perry were near the bottom of the pack with 4 percent and 3 percent of the vote, respectively.

On the Democratic side, the poll found Hillary Clinton as the runaway favorite with 60 percent of support. Vice President Joe Biden placed second with 13 percent, followed by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren with 12 percent.
