Video-Rep. Mike Pence Rips Senate- Demands Real Action on Budget

Posted on March 4, 2011



I  agree with Mike Pence. Pence is upset that the House bill had made major progress on the budget  only to have the Senate take a week by week small steps approach. It’s time to do the big stuff. It;s time to tackle entitlements. Voters in the Novemebr election want action on the our debt and we don’t want a slow dragged out approach. That approach favors the Dems. They will go along with small cuts here and their and then tire of the effort and give up. And the public will be mad as hell with the people they voted into office. Let’s get it done now!

I still feel Mike Pence would make a good presidetial candidate. He has Tea Party support and ties and he can work with the ‘Old GOP.’ SHAW

Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) voted for the two-week continuing resolution this week even though his amendment to defund Planned Parenthood was dropped from the bill in a compromise with Senate Democrats. But now he’s put his foot down: It’s time to end taxpayer funding for abortions and defund Obamacare as well.

“The time to put our fiscal house in order is now,” Pence said this morning on the House floor. “No more delays. No more kicking the cans. Let’s have the debate. Let’s hash it out. Let’s defund Obamacare. Let’s defund Planned Parenthood.”

Only six House Republicans voted against the two-week spending plan, which President Obama signed into law yesterday. Two of them were Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and Steve King (R-Iowa), who cast their votes against the measure because it did not defund Obamacare or Planned Parenthood.

But if Pence joins the fight in the next round, he could bring a substantial following with him. As former chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee and member of Republican leadership last year, he has the influence to persuade other members of Congress.
