DNC: GOP seeks 'dictatorship' 27 Jul 2011 Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Wednesday that House Republicans are trying to impose "dictatorship" through their tactics in the debt-ceiling negotiations. She said the GOP rhetoric could "spark panic and chaos," which she called "potentially devastating" to the economy. The chair telephoned POLITICO. "This is not leadership. This is almost like dictatorship. I know they want to force the outcome that... their extremists would like to impose. But they are getting ready to spark panic and chaos, and they seem to be OK with that. And it's just really disappointing, and potentially devastating."

Walker Makes It Harder to Obtain Voter ID, Shuts DMV Offices in Dem. Areas

July 27, 2011 by legitgov

Walker Makes It Harder to Obtain Voter ID, Shuts DMV Offices in Dem. Areas By Mike Hall 26 Jul 2011 In May, Gov. Scott Walker (R) signed a Voter ID bill that could disenfranchise tens of thousands of students, seniors, poor and minority Wisconsin voters who don't have drivers' licenses or state-issued photo IDs. Now it appears as if the Walker administration is going a step further to keep voters who aren't likely to be Walker supporters away from the polls.  He’s closing 10 Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices where residents can obtain the photo IDs they will need before they are allowed to vote. Supposedly, the move is to free up DMV employees to staff offices that will have expanded hours to provide ID services. But state Rep. Andy Jorgensen (D) says it appears the decisions were based on politics, with the department targeting offices for closure in Democratic areas and expanding hours for those in Republican districts.

Democrats will introduce bill to end FAA shutdown

July 27, 2011 by legitgov

Democrats will introduce bill to end FAA shutdown --Congress extended FAA funding levels 20 times after expiration of agency's last long-term funding authorization in 2007 26 Jul 2011 With no other movement to resolve a congressional stalemate over aviation funding, House Democrats on Tuesday said they would introduce a bill to restore funding for the Federal Aviation Administration... Outnumbered by 33 to 26 on the House Transportation Committee, Democrats would need to win over GOP support to get their bill to the floor, where it would face serious head winds. "Instead of negotiating at gunpoint and forcing the Senate to adopt its ideological assault on the American worker, House Republican leaders should end their senseless shutdown of the FAA by bringing this clean extension to the floor for a vote today while a long-term FAA reauthorization is finalized," said the committee's ranking member, Nick J. Rahall II (D-W.Va.).

NAACP head likens voter ID measures to Jim Crow

NAACP head likens voter ID measures to Jim Crow 25 Jul 2011 The head of the nation's oldest and largest civil rights group on Monday condemned state laws requiring photo identification of voters as an attempt to disenfranchise minorities through some "of the last existing legal pillars of Jim Crow." NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said a wave of newly enacted photo-ID requirements stemmed from what he saw as "the worst and most racist elements" in conservative Tea Party groups that have immersed themselves in state politics since the 2010 elections.

July 27, 2011 by legitgov

Thousands of federal aviation workers furloughed 24 Jul 2011 Millions of dollars in US airport taxes went uncollected Sunday while thousands of federal workers were out of work for a second day, following Congress' failure last week to pass a [GOP union-busting] bill keeping the country's aviation authority running.

Breivik's injected his dum-dum bullets with poison to make them deadlier --Killer talked in manifesto of using liquid nicotine in ammunition 26 Jul 2011 Anders Breivik could have used 'chemically enhanced' ammunition to ensure every shot was deadly, police believe. In his disturbing 'manifesto' he talked of plans to put liquid nicotine in his bullets. If the blast did not kill victims outright, the nicotine would go on to poison them. It was already known that Breivik used 'dum-dum' bullets during his killing spree – the expanding round has a hollow point which leaves a large exit wound after causing horrific wounds.

GOP leaders lobby members, Hannity 26 Jul 2011 Speaker John Boehner and House GOP leaders engaged in a furious last-minute lobbying effort inside and outside the Capitol on Tuesday evening to pass their debt ceiling package, but the outcome of that vote remains far from certain, according to Republican lawmakers and aides. With little or no Democratic support for the GOP plan, Boehner and his top lieutenants, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), had to battle their own party on two fronts. The Republican leadership trio has privately reached out to conservative TV personalities like Sean Hannity and Brit Hume, and Wall Street Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot...

July 26, 2011 by legitgov

New polls confirm Obama's Democratic base crumbles [As planned. Otherwise, Obama would simply invoke the 14th Amendment and end the great pseudo-debt ceiling debate.] 26 Jul 2011 With all of the spotlights on the high-stakes debt maneuverings by President Obama and Speaker John Boehner the last few days, few people noticed what Vermont's Sen. Bernie Sanders said: "I think it would be a good idea if President Obama faced some primary opposition." Strong support among liberal Democrats for Obama's jobs record has plummeted 22 points from 53% down below a third.
