This is an excellent transcript of what Conservatives and the GOP need to do to win over minorities. We all talk about how we need to reach out to minorities on the Conservative side, but never really talked about how to do it. As LilMissHoosier says, we may not win over anyone, or at least at first, but we need to engage the minorities on what they are thinking and what they want.
For the first time in four years, Senate Democrats have produced a budget, yet unfortunately their spending blueprint grows the government, not the economy, according to U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) in the Weekly Republican Address.
“Senate Democrats stuck together on Thursday night to oppose a GOP floor motion that would have required them to rewrite their budget to make it balance. The motion was defeated on a 46 to 53 vote. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) joined with the united Republican conference to support it.
The Wall Street Journal editorializes, “President Obama often claims he wants to cut the budget smartly, using a ‘scalpel’—not a meat axe, machete, cleaver or chainsaw, to list a few of his favorite metaphors. He'll need a more inspired term to describe what he's now doing to Medicare Advantage, perhaps napalm or WMD.
