Republicans: Payroll Tax Holiday Isn't "Stimulating" Enough

A prominent group of Republican lawmakers are opposing Obama administration efforts to extend a payroll tax holiday — due to expire on December 31 — that would continue putting more money in the pockets of working Americans. Opponents lean heavily on the argument that the current payroll tax holiday has not had a sufficiently stimulative effect on the economy, but experts disagree, arguing that the holiday has helped bolster the recovering economy.

Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - April 17, 2011

On Sunday morning, first-year Tea Party Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) almost managed to upstage her party's budget chairman by wrongly insisting on ABC that the GOP's "Path to Prosperity" budget is not a voucher program, works just like the insurance benefits for members of Congress, and would be sufficient to cover the cost of medical care for seniors. But Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) still offered the biggest whopper of the morning, claiming on CBS that the GOP budget doesn't cut taxes for the rich. None of these claims is true. The Republican plan slashes income taxes for the wealthy to Herbert Hoover levels while eliminating the capital gains tax. For the non-rich, the plan would end Medicare as we know it, leaving the typical 65-year-old with over $20,000 in annual medical costs by the year 2030. Meanwhile, freshman Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) claimed President Obama hasn't helped grow the economy, which is demonstrably false, and Walsh joined Rep. Allen West (R-FL) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) in calling for a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution that would in fact cripple Congress' ability to control spending and address recessions.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz: Chairman Of Glenn Beck's Oversight Committee

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), a prominent "rising star" in the House GOP caucus, has often used his position on the House Oversight Committee to serve as Glenn Beck's man in Congress. Chaffetz has repeatedly responded to Beck's conspiracy theories by demanding documents from the parties involved or even introducing legislation. Beck has noticed Chaffetz's efforts, repeatedly applauding him as one of the "good Republicans" his audience can "trust." Chaffetz, a frequent Beck guest, has likewise declared the Fox host a "great educator" and participated in his events, even scheduling a retreat for his staff so that they could attend Beck's Restoring Honor rally.
