Democrat Menendez blasts Obama for caving on Cuba relations

Cuban-American US Senator Robert Menendez, D-NJ, is highly critical of President Obama's move to normalize US relations with communist Cuba.

From a statement posted on his website:

“Today’s policy announcement is misguided and fails to understand the nature of the regime in Cuba that has exerted its authoritarian control over the Cuban people for 55 years. No one wishes that the reality in Cuba was more different than the Cuban people and Cuban-Americans that have fled the island in search of freedom. In November, the Cuban Commission for Human Rights & National Reconciliation (CCHR) documented 398 political arrests by the Castro regime. This brings the total number of political arrests during the first eleven months of this year to 8,410. This is a regime that imprisoned an American citizen for five years for distributing communications equipment on the island.  Releasing political prisoners today in Cuba is meaningless if tomorrow these individuals can be arrested again and denied the right to peacefully pursue change in their own country."

Pa. schools with declining enrollment get more state funding

Here's a real head-scratcher about the way Pennsylvania funds its public schools.
It would appear that the fewer students you have, the more state funding you get.

From an analysis done by The Commonwealth Foundation:
Consider that during the 2012-13 school year, state revenue per student in Pennsylvania's 20 fastest-growing districts was slightly more than $3,000. In contrast, state revenue per student among those districts with the largest decreases in enrollment was nearly $10,000. Put another way, school districts with declining enrollment received more than three times the state funding per student than growing districts.

Congressman Joe Pitts: Last Gasp of Harry Reid's Senate

By Congressman Joe Pitts
Guest columnist


I’m glad for that, but Reid’s strategy left a mess in Congress that had to be cleaned up before Christmas. Not a single appropriations bill was taken up this year in Senate. Under the standard Congressional budget process, each chamber should take up a dozen of these bills to fund government departments.

That meant that House and Senate negotiators had to work out all government funding in a single, large bill. That is a terrible way to do things, but that is the way Senate Democrats chose to operate. The House can’t simply send bills to the President on its own. Bills have to go through both chambers.

Working together, Democrat and Republican members of the Appropriations Committees put together an omnibus appropriations bill. It narrowly passed the House by a vote of 219-206.

This bill was far from ideal. It contains funding for many programs I disagree with. It does not represent a win for conservatives, but it is not a win for liberals either. In fact, legislators on both ends of the political spectrum were upset with the outcome. Elizabeth Warren, senator from Massachusetts, cried loudly for Democrats to oppose it. Ted Cruz, senator from Texas, lobbied Republicans to vote it down.

When both ends of the political spectrum have something to be upset about, then you can be reasonably sure that a bill is a fair compromise. I voted for the bill because I thought it was the best we could get given the circumstances. In divided government you have to take solace in small victories.

First of all, this bill allows the new Republican-led Congress to immediately deal with President Obama’s immigration order next year. The Department of Homeland Security is only funded through February 27. I like to use a military analogy: we have reinforcements on the way, but they are not here yet. If Republicans charge up the hill right now, we simply won’t win against the Reid Senate and Obama Presidency.

Republican control of the Senate will not mean that we get our way on everything. Senate filibuster rules still require 60 votes to bring up most pieces of legislation. The President can still wield his veto pen and we are not likely to find 67 Senators to overrule him. The difference will be that Republicans dictate what bills come up for a vote and when they come up for a vote.

Second, there were lots of small wins on important issues. The bill forces the administration to reveal Obamacare plans currently covering abortion, a first step in stopping the federal government from subsidizing the procedure. The bill also insists that the Department of Health and Human Services protect the conscience rights of people in California. In that state right now bureaucrats are forcing all plans regulated by the state to cover elective abortion, which is a violation of federal law.

The overall funding for the bill is actually less than what Republicans proposed in our own budget after we took back the House from Nancy Pelosi. This is far short of balancing the budget, but represents real progress considering that Democrats want to spend more and tax more.

A 1,700-page spending bill totaling $1.1 trillion is a bad way to legislate. When Republicans control the agenda next year, we have to insist on regular order. We have to pick through the spending bills and find real savings. We will have an opportunity to run the Congress according to conservative principles.

A word of caution though: the government will still be divided next year. In the next two years, the Republican Congress will have to make a strong case for a Republican president. In the 114th Congress, we won’t get everything we want, but we will get to present conservative solutions to the American people and give them a clear choice in 2016. 

Congressman Joe Pitts is a Republican who represents Pennsylvania's 16th Congressional District.

Imagine the mess Hillary would inherit from Obama

Why would anyone want to run for president in 2016 knowing they would inherit such a mess from the failed Obama presidency?

Karl Rove examines the floundering Hillary 2016 campaign in his latest column for The Wall Street Journal:
The next presidential election is in 23 months. But no amount of time is likely to be enough for Mrs. Clinton to make herself a much better candidate. She is who she is and cannot change. In 2008 she could not articulate a compelling purpose for her run and stressed only her inevitability and entitlement. So far, it looks like Hillary 2.0 will have at least as many problems as Hillary 1.0.

It’s hard for a political party to win three consecutive terms in the Oval Office. Since 1952, only George H.W. Bush was able to do it for his party after Ronald Reagan ’s two terms. Unfortunately for Democrats, Mr. Obama is no Reagan—and as they may soon find out, Hillary is no Bush 41.
