I’m an “all in” kind of energy person. I think we should use wind, solar, bio-fuels and any other “renewables,” out there. Heck, if wood chips would fire our economy, I’m in. I like nuclear, the ultimate renewable. We need to pressure the powers that be to allow the reuse of the [...]

Senator Tim Scott Gets Attacked

Jan 5, 2013

Right out of the box, newly sworn in South Carolina Senator Tim Scott is attacked by the NAACP.  They are basically saying, he’s not “black enough.”  Seems the new code language is “anti-civil rights” for black Republicans.  Tim is a self made man who had an interaction with a successful person as a young man [...]

Boehner Under Pressure

Jan 3, 2013

There’s no doubt that the split in the leadership vote in the House at 2-2 is a problem for Speaker Boehner, but there are two ways to look at it.  The split could have been intentional as to “cover the bases” and say it was a divided House.  Or it could have marked a challenge for [...]

Off the Fiscal Cliff? What Now?

Jan 2, 2013

I think Charles Krauthammer had the right idea on Special Report last night. Vote the Senate plan down and immediately introduce HR 1 for Thursday at 12:01 pm and promise the markets tax cuts by Thursday.  But that is not what happened and the Republicans could not be seen as the ones raising taxes.  To [...]

Martha Zoller’s 2012: A Look Back

Dec 30, 2012

I took a little time to watch “Huckabee” on the Fox News Channel last night and his opening monologue was about what he’d remember from 2012 and that go me “a-thinkin.”
Of course, I’ll remember my campaign for Congress.  The people I met and the team we put together.  Joel, Ryan, Rebecca, Patti and Laura on [...]

Out of Touch: The President Gives Fed Employees a Pay Increase

Dec 29, 2012

President Barack Obama showed us again Friday,  that he and his administration are out of touch with America. He issued an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees—from Joe Biden to the members of Congress,  to top level executive branch employees—in April they will get a .5% raise.

The Death Tax

Dec 28, 2012

CNBC ran a story today asking the question whether the change in the Death Tax laws will result in more millionaire deaths in the waning days of 2013. I understand the thought process behind the article and it’s important that we understand all the ramification of the “fiscal cliff.”  However, I lost my Aunt last [...]

Going over the Fiscal Cliff

Dec 27, 2012

Would it be better to go over the fiscal cliff?  I was talking to my 30 year old son this morning.  He’s a DMA in Music and worked his way through grad school by getting Microsoft and Apple certifications.  He’s a brilliant kid, in his first full time job in IT and moving up the [...]

My colleague, Daniel Malloy, took a look the Speaker Boehner’s plan ahead of today’s vote:

As Georgia Republican Reps. Phil Gingrey, Jack Kingston and Paul Broun sat together on the House floor
during a vote this evening, House Speaker John Boehner plopped down in the row behind them and gave
them an earful. Boehner, viewed by this reporter [...]

Tea Party Advice: From The Inside

Dec 13, 2012

There is much “lamenting and gnashing of teeth” over the future of the Tea Party.  There’s turmoil at Freedomworks, “cleansing” of Tea Party conservatives in Congress and at home and around the country, local groups want to know what’s next?
Let’s step back for a moment and look at the history. This is a movement and [...]

Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and the state Senate’s two new top leaders said Monday that they are moving ahead as a “united front,” effectively ending a more than two-year feud in the chamber that affected how it did the public’s business.

Cagle, Senate Pro Tem-elect David Shafer, R-Duluth, and Senate Majority Leader-elect Ronnie Chance, R-Tyrone, all [...]

If Not Boehner, Then Who? We Have Options

Dec 11, 2012

If not Boehner, then who?
Last week, American Majority Action kicked off the trending #FireBoehner hastag on Twitter and began to pressure House members to abstain from voting for Speaker.
After speaking with the House Parliamentarian, we discovered the House precedent is actually interpreted to mean an absolute majority of votes cast for a specific candidate. So, [...]
