    What an awesome graphic. Very clear and packed with information. This shows how complicated and far reaching his action was. The media and bloggers will want to grab that for sure. Great job, Mr. President!

    Thanks, Chipsticks.

    That graphic shows well the absolutely devastating effect on the whole country if the auto companies had not received their loans. We cannot imagine what it would have been! He does the right thing, and in thelong run, the result comes around right. People are so impatient, and when it comes right, they’re unwilling to admit it. Those families affected by this have a lot of friends and other family…..this good news will advance geometrically and exponentially, person to person, famiy to family.

    It will be graphics like these and excellent tools like the one just released by Reps Waxman and Pallone, that are going to drive the message to every American, how vastly different the President and the Democratic Party are.

    Check this and share with everyone you know – http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/06/democrats-break-down-impact-of-gop-medicare-plan-district-by-district.php?ref=fpb

    And, this tool is also one to share with everyone you know – http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/taxes/tax-receipt

    And, never forget, the Republicans promised jobs in 2010, and instead:

    They’ve tried to kill Medicare.

    They’ve attacked education, the National Institutes of Health, women’s rights …. AND,

    Now, they are threatening to take the Nation into default in order to kill Medicare.

    Now, they are threatening to take the Nation into default in order to protect and extend tax cuts to the wealthy.

    Now, they are threatening to take the Nation into default in order to protect and extend tax cuts to corporations.

    Jobs, not so much.

    Yes.We.Can. … DO.More.Together!

    Republicans mistakenly broadcast private meeting, leak strategy

    Tags: Under the Dome | budget | N.C. House Republicans | Paul Stam | Thom Tillis

    House Republicans held a behind-closed-doors caucus meeting to discuss their strategy on the budget and other issues Friday, but did not know all their remarks were being broadcast live into the press room through an open microphone.

    House leaders warned members against asking about a redistricting provision in the $19.7 billion budget they plan to approve this afternoon.

    If any questions come up, said Majority Leader Paul Stam, Rep. David Lewis should answer them.

    “On one point, I only want David Lewis to talk,” Stam said, an Apex Republican. “The talk about redistricting and this thing in the budget is extremely sensitive to the other people not in this room who are voting with us. No one but David talk. David can obfuscate more than anybody I know.”

    The “other people not in this room” is an apparent reference to the five Democrats voting with Republicans on the budget.

    House Speaker Thom Tillis reminded members not to talk about “Democrats,” but to counter individuals by name.

    “This is not about Democrats, because we have Democrats voting for this budget,” he said. “Please, do not go after the Democrats. If you want to go after an individual member for saying something stupid, gut punch them. These five Democrats are going after her (Gov. Bev Perdue). We’ll go after the governor; when we have a veto override.”

    UPDATE: Perdue had some fun at the Republicans’ expense at her afternoon media conference. Walking up to a bank of microphones, she pretended to fumble with them and quipped: “Are these things on? Is there a switch I need to …”

    After the press corps broke into laughter, she added: “I’m pretty competent with microphones.”

    The governor’s dig was a reference to Stam’s comment (included after the jump) that she is “incompetent.”


    Tillis told members that the House Rules Committee would take up a Senate bill that the N.C. Association of Educators is fighting. It would prevent members from having dues to the organization taken directly from their paychecks.

    NCAE has sent mail to voters in the districts of five Democrats voting for the GOP-authored budget.

    “The NCAE has gone into all five districts with mailers hammering these Democrats,” Tillis said. “We just want to give them a little taste of what’s about to come. It’s going to be in Rules, and they’re going to be mad.”

    The news of Perdue filling an executive order to restore unemployment benefits broke at about the time House Republicans were meeting.

    Tillis suggested they respond by saying it’s illegal or that she should fire her lawyers.

    Stam went further.

    “Either way, she’s incompetent,” the Apex Republican said. “We really need to crack on her for this. This is probably one of the worst things she’s done.”

    Rep. Mark Hilton, a Catawba Republican, told members of his caucus that groups supporting a constitutional gay-marriage ban need a vote this year so they can organize their get-out-the-vote campaigns.

    Hilton called the session “one of the most conservative, pro-family legislative sessions I’ve ever seen.”

    The marriage amendment “is important to conservative groups,” he said. “They need to be able to get their ground-game working to get out the vote for it to be on the November ballot.” House Speaker Thom Tillis “assured us it would happen this year,” he said.

    Other conservative items of interest: illegal immigration and “gun issues.”
