A message to all members of Virginia Tea Party Patriots

Good Afternoon Patriots,


I just got off the phone with Senator Warner's Chief of Staff. 


Currently, it is believed that some revised version of The Boehner's plan will pass this afternoon and then the Senate will vote late tonight to table it.  So, the next step will be the battle in the Senate. 


It may be a lost cause to try and meet with Warner's staff; however it would be good for us to make an attempt to meet with them.  That meeting has been scheduled for Monday August 1st at 1 PM in Washington.  Federation Leaders – if you want to participate – please RSVP on the Event page.  I would recommend your broadcast to your local groups; however I need an accurate R.S.V.P. List Monday morning so COS Luke Albee can assure an adequate room size – so if you plan on bringing folks from your local groups – please RSVP a TOTAL number, along with your group name to


While we disagree with Senator Warner on many issues – I assured Mr. Albee that this would be a meeting which would be civil.  It is my hope it will also be productive.

instaPoll: Do you support the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act?

Congressman Randy Forbes


On Tuesday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act, H.R. 2560, a bill I cosponsored to reduce the deficit by cutting spending in Fiscal Year 2012 by $111 billion, capping future spending at 19.9 percent of gross domestic product, and requiring congressional approval of a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution prior to any agreement to raise the debt limit.  On Monday, the Administration threatened to veto the bill despite having failed to publicly offer a comprehensive proposal to Congress or strike a deal that significantly reduces the long-term deficit and current spending in order to raise the nation's debt limit.

Question of the Week: Do you support the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act that cuts current spending, sets caps on future spending, and requires the passage of a balanced budget amendment prior to raising the debt ceiling?

(  ) Yes
(  ) No
(  ) Other (please share your thoughts on my blog)
(  ) I am unsure.

Take the poll here.

1,471: Another day, another round of Obamacare waivers

Sent to you by alexanderofyork via Google Reader:

via Michelle Malkin by Michelle Malkin on 7/16/11

Congratulations to the 39 new recipients of coveted Obamacare waivers!
The latest batch was disclosed yesterday on the HHS/CMS website:
Updated July 15, 2011
As of the end of June 2011, a total of 1,471 one-year waivers have been granted. This update includes 39 new approvals. The number of enrollees in plans with annual limits waivers is 3.2 million, representing only about 2 percent of all Americans who have private health insurance today.
Waiver applications will no longer be accepted after September 22, 2011. As noted above, on June 17, 2011, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced a process for plans that have already received waivers and want to renew those waivers for plan or policy years beginning before January 1, 2014.

President Obama's cap-and-trade bill died in the Democrat-run 111th Congress, but that hasn't stopped the chief executive and Lisa Jackson, his US Environmental Protection Agency administrator, from finding regulatory paths to achieve the same goals. ...

instaPoll: Do you support the President's call to increase taxes as a way to address our national debt?

Congressman Randy Forbes
On May 16, 2011, the government officially reached the debt ceiling, or the level imposed by Congress on how much national debt the U.S. can carry. Despite reaching this threshold, stronger than expected tax revenues have extended the government's borrowing authority through August 2, 2011. The Administration cannot raise the debt ceiling without permission from Congress and so for the past several months, congressional leaders and Administration officials have conducted negotiations to determine the size and scope of spending cuts necessary for Congress to agree to lift the debt ceiling. Recently, the Associated Press reported that the Administration is seeking to not only raise the debt ceiling, but also to raise taxes on small business owners and potentially low- and middle-income families. Instead of raising taxes on those who can least afford it and on those most likely to create jobs, I remain committed to a plan that includes serious and immediate cuts in spending, institutes permanent federal spending caps, and passes a requirement for Congress to balance the federal budget by spending no more than revenues allow.

Question of the Week: Do you support the President's call to increase taxes as a way to address our national debt?

(  ) Yes
(  ) No
(  ) Other (share your thoughts on my blog here).
(  ) I am unsure.

Caucus Brief: Billiards In The South China Sea

BILLIARDS IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA.  A new piece from the American Enterprise Institute argues that the U.S. and China are approaching the South China Sea in very different ways.  The piece describes the Chinese approach as a game of billiards where to win, China must knock the other balls off of the table leaving itself in control.  In contrast the American approach is described as a game of capture the flag where the U.S. is trying to keep Beijing from capturing the flag of regional hegemony.  From the piece: "American policy makers need to recognize they're playing a different game from the Chinese and adjust their strategy.  While shifting to billiards is too provocative for Washington, if trends continue, it may soon find itself behind the eight ball with few options for maintaining its stabilizing role in the region.

Caucus Brief: Asia Needs A Larger U.S. Defense Budget

ASIA NEEDS A LARGER U.S. DEFENSE BUDGET.  An op-ed in the WSJ argues that American naval power maintains the stability and free navigation that allow trade to flourish in Asia, and that cuts to the U.S. defense budget could have significant implications for the region.  From the piece: "China's military rise is changing the balance of power in its neighborhood.  While Washington debates how to cut America's military, China continues to spend generously on defense…The equation budget cutters should ponder is that China's aggressive build-up plus American defense cuts equals Asian instability.  That instability could have far-reaching consequences.  America's military has ensured peace and stability in the region, made the seas safe for trade and transit, provided Asians with the political space to prosper, and guaranteed that no hostile power would again use the Pacific as an avenue for an attack on American soil."

Caucus Brief: Cisco Poised To Help China Keep An Eye On Its Citizens

CISCO POISED TO HELP CHINA KEEP AN EYE ON ITS CITIZENS.  The WSJ is reporting that western companies, including Cisco Systems Inc., may help China build an ambitious new surveillance network that will include as many as 500,000 cameras.  When asked about concerns over political use of the system, Todd Bradley, an executive vice president of Hewlett Packard who is also bidding on the project said, "We take them at their word as to the usage…It's not my job to really understand what they're going to use it for.  Our job is to respond to the bid that they've made."
