Do Senate Republicans hate the Tea Party, more than they hate Harry Reid?

American Principles In Action - RNC Urges Passage of Brady-Cornyn Centennial Monetary Commission 

Dear Monetary Policy Observer,

The RNC recently passed a resolution calling for the adoption of a bipartisan Centennial Monetary Commission.  APIA senior economics advisor Ralph Benko makes the case in his latest Forbes column that this is a sign  of good money policy debate coming out of policy hibernation, and  details  the growing institutional support for the Brady-Cornyn Centennial Monetary Commission Act (HR1176/S1895).

We hope you find this material of interest.

Sincerely,

Nicholas Arnold

Unemployment Will Remain High So Long As The Dollar Remains Wiggly

The Republican National Committee recently passed a resolution, by the unanimous vote of its National Committeepeople, calling for the creation of a national Monetary Commission.  This legislation is prime sponsored in the House of Representatives by Joint Economic Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Tx) and in the US Senate by Republican whip John Cornyn (R-Tx).

Cato, with a representative from Heritage, recently conducted a panel on Capitol Hill on this same proposed Commission.

…This, however, is not a partisan issue.  It very much is one that loyal Democrats can, and should, embrace.  Even the RNC made a nonpartisan call to action for “all political and civic leaders,” not just Republicans.  Job creation through good money is bigger than partisan politics.

DNC - RNC attacks Senator Shaheen for…doing her job 

Today, the RNC attacked Senator Jeanne Shaheen for doing her job.

You read that right. The RNC released a research document accusing Sen. Shaheen of “running away” from Vice President Biden. In fact – as their research doc even states – she is in Washington to chair an Appropriations subcommittee hearing – a responsibility she has as a duly elected U.S. Senator from New Hampshire.

When you win elections, you have a job to do. That’s how this works.

If anyone’s “running away” – it’s Scott Brown. The Scott Brown of today is running away from the Scott Brown of the past. As a Massachusetts Senator, Brown had embraced the People’s Pledge, but now in New Hampshire, he fears running for Senate without air cover from Big Oil and Wall Street. And Scott Brown can’t run fast enough away from reporters when asked about whether he supports Medicaid expansion that would benefit Granite Staters.

We’ve seen inane attacks before, but the RNC is setting the bar even lower with this latest hit. Ironically, it also comes less than 24 hours after the GOP’s preferred candidate to run against Senator Shaheen in New Hampshire, former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, told the AP: “Do I have the best credentials? Probably not. ‘Cause, you know, whatever.”

So the RNC wants to elect Scott Brown, who doesn’t even believe he has the best credentials for the job, while attacking the U.S. Senator who’s working hard to deliver results for Granite Staters in the Senate? That makes sense. ‘Cause, you know, whatever.

RNC Hits Shaheen With Paid Web Ads On ObamaCare

RNC Launches “Smaller Paychecks, Fewer Workers” Web Ad Series

 
WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee (RNC) released seven new web videos targeting vulnerable Senate Democrats. The videos follow last week’s devastating CBO report on ObamaCare and hold the Senators accountable for supporting a law that is resulting in fewer workers and smaller paychecks. In each of the seven states, active voters searching for relevant video content will see the web ad about their respective senator.
 
Targeted Democrats include Senators Mark Begich (D-AK), Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Mark Udall (D-CO), and Mark Warner (D-VA).
 
“The Congressional Budget Office’s report confirms what we know already: ObamaCare is bad for the economy and for workers,” said Chairman Reince Priebus. “It proves that Americans will suffer greatly from ObamaCare: the equivalent of over two million workers will leave the workforce and millions of Americans will see smaller paychecks. These seven Senators supported President Obama and his disastrous healthcare law, and they must be held accountable for discouraging people from working.”

NHDP Responds To Dishonest RNC Ad

Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement after national Republicans launched a dishonest, deceitful and debunked web-video attacking New Hampshire's Senator Jeanne Shaheen:

"This dishonest ad is based on phony claims that were labeled false by the Washington Post and debunked by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.  Republicans are obsessed with re-fighting the health care battles of the past and want to take people back to the days where insurance companies can discriminate based on pre-existing conditions and kick people off their plans if they get sick, but New Hampshire can't afford their hyper-partisan approach.  Granite Staters aren't fooled by desperate and deceitful attacks, they know Jeanne Shaheen, and they know she always puts New Hampshire first, working for common sense solutions that make a difference for people here."
  FACT CHECK: RNC AD IS DISHONEST, DECEITFUL, DEBUNKED


REPORT: “CBO Makes Clear That It Never Said 2.5 Million People Will Lose Their Jobs” Because Of The ACA. “The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office on Monday in its most direct way yet clarified its recent report on the impact ObamaCare will have on jobs. CBO makes clear that it never said 2.5 million people will lose their jobs, in the sense of being laid off, due to the law by 2024, but rather than workers would choose to leave the labor force. CBO Director Doug Elmendorf makes clear that CBO is instead estimating that there will be fewer hours worked by then, equivalent to 2.5 million full-time jobs, and those lost hours will be due to workers choosing not to work.” [The Hill, On the Money, 2/10/14]

 
FACTCHECK FALSE: Claim That Obamacare Will Kill More Than 2 Million Jobs Given “Three Pinocchios” In February 2014, the Washington Post’s The Fact Checker examined the claim that the ACA would kill more than 2 million jobs was given “Three Pinocchios” for “significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions.” They wrote: “Once again, we award Three Pinocchios to anyone who deliberately gets this wrong.” [Washington Post, The Fact Checker, 2/4/14]
