1. Targets

The NRCC has a list of targets in the House of Representatives on the health care vote. Go check the list, see if your congresscritter is on it, and pick up the phone. Tell ’em to vote no on Obamacare. Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. Obama: The Will Of The People Be Damned – I’LL Decide Who Can Go Fishing

It all started here this morning: "The Obama administration will accept no more public input for a federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing the nation’s oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters." I had to read that 3 times before it sank in…and then I did a little research. Guess what old Barack (I’ve never had a fishing rod in my hand a day in my life) Obama has been up to since last year? Plotting a Federal takeover of all our bodies of water (freshwater…saltwater…doesn’t matter), in an effort to set up MORE bureaucracies and circumvent the rights of the States to determine fair use and access rules amongst themselves based on the local interests of everyone involved. If he was out to ban recreational fishing this piece would be easy enough to write; scream a little, stomp my feet, vow he’ll have to pry my fishing rod from my cold dead hands, etc…and be done with it. Problem is, this is much darker and more corrupt than that. Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. The Abortion Gambit: Stupak’s Folly

Credit where it is due: the Senate GOP has come up with a great strategy to combat talk of compromise on reconciliation. The Senate GOP will block any effort to strip abortion funding in reconciliation. This may get a few pro-life groups upset and I want to be very clear here — you will be able to tell the real pro-life groups from the posers by their stand on this strategy. The real pro-life groups will support this and the posers will oppose it. Here’s why. Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. Bob Bennett Must Go

Bennett routinely takes in nearly twice as much contributions from out of state than from within Utah. In the 2006 cycle, 63% of his contributions came from outside Utah. In the 2008 cycle, 62% came from out of state. So far in the 2010 cycle, 68% of his donations came from outside Utah. Overall, the Washington DC metro area is his second highest source of contributions, second only to the Salt Lake City area. Please click here for the rest of the post.
