Senator Sessions is one of our heroes. Here is again doing something no other senator does: speak honestly to us about our situation and the issues. This time it’s about ObamaCare and it’s obscene cost–$6.2 trillion in unfunded spending, much more than any new taxes can provide. In other words, it’s another national economic disaster.

Via RCP.

At a Budget Committee hearing today, Ranking Member Sessions announced the results of a new Government Accountability Office report on the long-term deficit impact of the President’s health law. The results are shocking: over the next 75 years, the law will add $6.2 trillion to the deficit in present value terms—not including the interest costs associated with the additional borrowing. This proves that President Obama’s claim that he would “not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits—either now or in the future” were false.

SEN. JEFF SESSIONS (R-ALABAMA): “The big-government crowd in Washington manipulated the numbers in order to get the financial score they wanted, in order to get their bill passed and to increase power and influence. The goal was not truth or financial responsibility, but to pass the bill. This is how a country goes broke. It’s also how the economy and jobs are destroyed.”

    Thank you, Jeff Sessions, for having the conviction to show the truth. We know we can count on him, as his record proves he is steady as he goes through the years in the Senate. We cannot count of Rand Paul just yet, as he voted to confirm Hagel. What the heck?

    In the words of the Obamaphone recipient, “Keep Obama *IN* President!” If you thought the 1st 4 years were bad; if we don’t turn this around in 2014, it’s a wrap! While Republicans are complicit in OBummer’s every wish and whim, they are also delusional if they think they will win a national election in the foreseeable future.

      I see the biggest problem Kitten, as…..apathy.

      • geezee says:

        I continue to see one of the biggest problems as the press. It is the role of a free press to police the government. Their JOB. What I don’t understand is why our current media are unwilling to call this administration out. I don’t see what’s in it for them to be lapdogs of the president, other than being lapdogs of the president. Wouldn’t they prefer to go down in history as turning the course of a nation, simply by persistently calling out the daily lies of such an administration as this??

      • Kitten says:

        Yes, the only thing they’re truly passionate about and interested in is getting re-elected.

    Sessions also spoke out against the release of the “up to 10,000″ illegal aliens (wonder how many of those are men?):

    “The last thing you would do to meet a budget cut of this size would be to voluntarily undertake actions that undermine the rule of law and endanger the public safety,” he said.”

    Illegal immigrants set free from detention centers as sequester approaches

    Such a series of seriously depressing news: Hagel, illegals released (unless taxpayers pay more! which is coercion and holding us hostage, thank you Obama you-friend-to-all-women-you!), and Obama forcing the press to leave when he met with the governors and the Republican governors doing nothing to stop him! Like walking out in solidarity with the press, which would have gotten them great publicity plus been the right thing to do (no pun intended, or maybe yes?), like insisting on transparency, i.e using Alinsky tactics on 0, making him live up to his own rules…but no. The Repubs did nothing.

    So with all this depressing stuff, maybe Tams would like to see this. It’s actually pretty cool and uplifing:

    They lie and they lie and they lie and nobody cares. Blatant and obvious. Murders in Benghazi. Trillion-dollar overruns. Big stuff, life-and-death stuff. Lies. Nobody cares. What do you say when nobody cares?

    • mrcannon says:

      I’m sitting here taking all this in, trying to come up with a comment that is both succinct and profound. I can’t think of anything, much like when I wonder where we came from, why we exist, and why I wasn’t born a koala. This is absolutely beyond comprehension.

      How I miss freedom.

    As I hear politicians and media, yes FOX also, put out what they feel needs to be done to turn the country around, to get out of debt, to create jobs, etc.. I get aggravated. The moronic dumb bastard does not want that for America. He wants us destroyed. Saying “Obama must do this, Obama must do that, bla bla bla.. He wants us brought to our knees. Prepare & pray. Yes, be optimistic and keep fighting but to think this freak is going to do anything good for America is being delusional.

    Truth told, but nobody in the media cares

    Looks like crime on a huge scale. Trillions have vanished and there are new diversions daily for bag holders around the world left and right.
