Okay so I love her. She’s one of the first women that SGP decided to throw their support behind, and I’m so glad there are women like her out there in our government.
First of all, she started The Majority Tracker. The Majority Tracker is her blog, tracking the 111th Congress. She provides a detailed account of all the inside stuff, letting us know how they’re spending our money. Thanks to Brodigan for bringing this to my attention, because it’s great. Go add it to your blogroll and reader.
Just to add to her awesomeness, she did an interview with us last week, which has been posted on the main SGP site, but I figured I’d re-post some highlights here in case you missed it:
Conservatism is not dead, no matter how much the main stream media, liberal elites, and others may want it to be – it just needs to be reignited. Republicans squandered our opportunity to lead our country for decades to come because we threw conservative policies and principles aside in place of big government programs and spending. Plain and simple, we governed like liberals. Spending skyrocketed, the size of government multiplied, the debt grew, and the conservative ideals Republicans came to power on were left by the wayside.
The partisanship of the White House doesn’t scare me half as much as the partisanship of the Democrat leadership in the Congress. I expect that they will look to seize this opportunity to ram through enormous spending bills, Big Labor agenda items, and liberal social policies.
Just look at the first couple of weeks of the 111th Congress: The Senate pushes through its land grab; both houses push through massive changes to employment law that benefit no one but trial lawyers; the so-called $825 billion stimulus package is rushing into law. This is likely only a preview of the next two years.
So clearly she rocks. And we need more of her in Congress. You can read the rest of the article here.
She hit the nail on the head in that first comment. We governed like liberals. There was nothing conservative about Bush’s fiscal policies – and that is the image of “conservatives” the country is left with. It was embarrassing, and gave people a very good reason not to like us. We basically became a pro-life version of the Democrats, and we have so much more to offer than that!
Congress is going to be the scariest part of the next 4 years. I have said before that I think Nancy Pelosi is one of the most dangerous people in power right now – and she’s two heartbeats away from the presidency. We need to keep track of everything they do. Tell them how you want them to spend YOUR money.
I’ll make it easy: Here’s Pelosi’s number: (202) 225-4965.
Help minimize the damage of the next couple years, and let’s start doing the legwork to make changes for 2010. Support people like Michele Bachmann. This starts now.
