    Well, well . . . isn’t this special: Dave Brat says he’s ready to add ONE TRILLION

    DOLLARS to the deficit just so he can kill the Affordable Care Act.

    — quote

    Some of the most conservative members of Congress say they are ready
    to vote for a budget that would — at least on paper — balloon the
    deficit to more than $1 trillion by the end of the decade, all for the
    sake of eventually repealing the Affordable Care Act.In a
    dramatic reversal, many members of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus
    said Thursday they are prepared later this month to support a budget
    measure that would explode the deficit and increase the public debt to
    more than $29.1 trillion by 2026 — a figure that is contained in the budget resolution.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/powerpost/conservatives-ready-to-support-1-trillion-hole-in-the-budget/2017/01/05/76d4bf34-d391-11e6-a783-cd3fa950f2fd_story.html

    — end quote

    And before you respond, remember, Brat is a very active member of the “House Freedom Caucus.”

    So much for republican fiscal responsibility.

      You made me curious with the headline, then totally lost me with “Washington Post”.

      The Washington Post, New York Times, LA Times, Vox, Salon, MSNBC, CNN, Huffington Post, etc, I can’t even see these names anymore without thinking F-A-K-E … N-E-W-S.

      These places burned the last bit of credibility they had during the 2016 election, and I mean the very last bit. They’ll do just about anything to discredit conservatives, and they’ve proved that.

      This article from the New York Times will live on forever.

      Do you know what the headline was in the News York Times the day after Obama won the Presidency ?

      OBAMA ELECTED PRESIDENT AS RACIAL BARRIER FALLS

      Do you know what the headline was in the New York Times the day after Trump won the Presidency ?

      DEMOCRATS, STUDENTS AND FOREIGN ALLIES FACE THE REALITY OF A TRUMP PRESIDENCY

      And I’m supposed to believe anything the LA Times, New York Times, Washington Post, etc, have to say ?

      I DON’T THINK SO.

      How much will the ACA costs add by the end of the decade?

      • Jonathan Erickson

        It estimated that the total net cost of the insurance coverage provisions of the law would be $1.35 trillion over 10 years, from 2016 through 2025. This net cost includes gross costs of $1.993 trillion, which includes spending on subsidies for insurance obtained through the exchanges, tax credits to small businesses and expanded Medicaid coverage, minus revenues of $643 billion

      As we all know, House republicans attempted to protect their criminal members by placing the organization that investigates ethics complaints under the House Ethics Committee, thereby emasculating investigations. Public outcry killed that under-the-cover-of-darkness move.

      Now we find House republicans attempting to hide evidence of their damage to the economy.

      The move, shrouded in a “rules package” referred to as House Resolution 5, (https://policy.house.gov/legislative/bills/hres-adopting-rules-115th-congress)

      bans the Congressional Budget Office from calculating the deficit that will result from repealing the Affordable Care Act . . . expected to add $1.5 trillion or more to the deficit.

      So — republicans want to keep their ethics violations secret as well as keeping secret their additions to the deficit. Is there anything you clowns want to see made public? Oh, wait, Hillary’s emails. . . .

      By the way, did you see that Paul Ryan’s proposed budget will cut between $300 and $500 million from the State Department embassy security budget? What was that about Benghazi?

      • Jeanine Martin

        Again, completely off topic. Please stop.

    • Anita Hile

      Did you even read the article you posted? Brat is joining Paul in questioning this. “Other Republicans, including Paul, still question whether it is ever acceptable to support deficit increases, no matter how symbolic.” And this, “Not all conservatives are convinced. Paul is joined by deficit hawks like Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.) who worry their voters won’t countenance even a seemingly meaningless vote to increase the deficit.”

    Congratulations to Vince Haley! President-elect Trump continues to surround himself with great people like Vince who’ll help #DrainTheSwamp & #MAGA.

    Thanks for reporting this exciting & terrific news, Jeanine & TBE! This significantly raises Virginia Republicans’ stature to have one of our own so close to the President.

    Since old_redneck posts random *&^% all over these threads that have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TOPIC then I guess I can do the same too, right ?

    I just want to say HOW HAPPY I am that Republicans in Congress took the first steps to getting rid of the ACA law, the worst law ever passed in my opinion, and I don’t mean that as hyperbole. I can’t WAIT until that law is gone. Every time they remove a provision of the law I’m going to have a party of some kind, even if its just a cupcake with a candle in it. This crap can’t be gone soon enough.

    Thank you Congress.

    • Children Of The Revolution

      Speaking of which …

      I’ll say it, I think after MONTHS of spam from old_redneck that he has zero interest in actually participating in this forum. All he does is spam the place with random nonsense, and I don’t know about ya’ll but I’m really kind of tired of it. It would be different if he engaged us in some meaningful way, or even if he was spamming the forum with *&^% that was actually on topic, but he isn’t. After months of this BS, have we finally given him enough of a chance ? I’ve defended old_redneck’s right to post here, and I know others have too, but frankly its just getting old and he has no respect for the forum or anyone here, and I’m starting to think the forum should stop indulging him. I don’t even care that he hates everyone on the forum, I really don’t, but his posts are like advertisements that we have to wade through at this time and I’m sick of reading them.

      • old_redneck

        Upset are we??

        Stop whining, snowflake, and suck it up.

        • Children Of The Revolution

          Not upset, bored. Your *&^% is just lame and boring.

          To be upset I’d have to be interested.

          • Sbn

            I don’t agree w much if it but unless I’m missing something, does it violate any forum rules?

            Nothing wrong (imho) w a challenge to the status quo or if nothing else, find a chuckle of it. To quote the great philosopher Joker, “why so serious”?

            The person that says he’s “not upset (or interested) but takes the time to reply (not refute), is both…..just sayin’. 😉

          • Children Of The Revolution

            You got it wrong – I LOVE to debate, but that’s not what old_redneck is doing here, at all.

            What if I just started posting random crap I read that agrees with my political viewpoint on threads that don’t even have ANYTHING to do with the topic of the thread on Blue Virginia, over and over ? I mean if they’re talking about the latest local DNC meeting and I cut and paste an article written by someone saying Obama isn’t born in the U.S., or they are talking about a bill before state legislature and I cut and paste an article about AR-15 rifles being banned in California, don’t you think after about a few HUNDRED of those the guys at Blue Virginia would eventually get sick of it ?

            Hell I’d LOVE to debate old_redneck, but that’s not what he’s here for.

            Like I said, I’m not upset, I’m just BORED. He might as well be posting stuff about breeding pot belly pigs, or fixing clogged fuel injectors or something. If what he was posting was (1) more than just cutting and pasting crap he reads somewhere and (2) ON TOPIC, I’d love to debate him. I don’t even care that he’s belligerent, but at least debate us and stop the endless freaking SPAM. He hardly ever responds to anything anyone writes in response to him, all he seems to care about is boring the *&^% out of people.

      • Jeanine Martin

        Agree. He needs to stick to the topic and stop the ‘copy and paste’ on other subjects.

        Can’t handle the truth, eh?

        This article and the ensuing thread are about an individual who is part of the Trump team. It’s important that we see what the Trump team REALLY is.

          They were not the Trump team, it wasn’t true and it absolutely nothing to do with Vince Haley.

    Trump stiffs another DC contractor who puts lien on his DC hotel, bringing total of liens to $5 million . . . at least three contractors stiffed by Trump.

    Workers from AES Electrical apparently went all out to make sure Donald Trump could open his luxury hotel on the day he wanted.

    In the frenzied final six weeks of work at the hotel, while Trump
    touted the project on the campaign trail, AES of Laurel, Md., claims it
    assigned 45 members of its staff to work 12-hour shifts for nearly 50
    consecutive days to get the lights, electrical and fire systems prepared
    on time.

    “We had people there well over 12 hours a day for weeks because they
    had a hard opening of Sept. 12 and you can’t open if the lights don’t
    work and the fire alarms don’t work and the fire marshal can’t inspect
    it,” said Tim Miller, executive vice president of AES. “There is a lot
    of work that went into that hotel, and it didn’t happen by accident.”

    Trump got his wish: The hotel was ready enough that on Sept. 16 he
    held a campaign event there honoring veterans, which was carried live on
    national television. He touted the hotel as having been completed
    “under budget and ahead of schedule” and said that when it opened
    officially the following month it would be “one of the great hotels
    anywhere in the world.”

    Least expensive cocktail at Trump’s DC hotel is $24.

    The scamming and the price gouging never end . . .

    Source: Washingtonian

    And you thought the $14 cocktail was too pricey? The Trump hotel’s lobby bar has raised its cocktail prices yet again. The cheapest option now is $24, while the most expensive is $100.

    It’s safe to say the Trump hotel’s Benjamin Bar & Lounge is now the most expensive overall bar in all of Washington, and its price hikes are the hugest I’ve ever seen, especially in such a short period.

    When the hotel opened on September 12, cocktail prices ranged from $16 to $20—not cheap, but not totally unheard of for a luxury hotel. Then in October, we noted those exact same cocktails had been jacked up to the $20 to $24 range

    There is a bright spot: If you order anything with tequila, Mexico will pay for it.

    • Jeanine Martin

      That is completely ridiculous. Several of my friends go to the Trump hotel weekly for cocktails and often dinner. They would NEVER spend that kind of money for any cocktail!

      • Sbn

        Not that it really matters ( he can charge whatever he wants) but, per The Washingtonian, if your friends have “NEVER”, they will now be paying $24 minimum for their swill of choice.

        • Jeanine Martin

          Sorry, I don’t care what the Washingtonian says, they’re wrong. Surely you don’t believe everything you read, do you?

          • Sbn

            Nah, that’s why I at least attempt to get supporting references regardless of who is making the statement. You’re an intrepid member of the new media, do you have a contradictory picture of the menu? If nothing else, that’s a great excuse to do some investigative reporting on TBE dime.

          • Jeanine Martin

            I’m not intrepid, I’ve spoken with three people, none of whom who have paid that much for drinks at Trump’s new hotel.
