Ron Paul Victory in Maine!

Ron Paul Victory in Maine!

Ron Paul Victory in Maine!“We are confident we will control the Maine delegation for the convention in August”

FALMOUTH, Maine – 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul has scored a strong finish in the Maine presidential caucuses. Paul gained over 36 percent of the vote in the ‘Pine Tree’ state, being barely nudged out by eventual winner Gov. Mitt Romney who pulled in a little over 38 percent.

Paul performed well throughout the state, although his campaign’s stronghold of Washington County did not report today for inexplicable reasons. Congressman Paul was barely bested by Gov. Romney by about 194 votes, a margin the campaign is confident it will make up with the 200 plus votes expected to come out of Washington County’s caucus.

“Today’s results show once again that Congressman Paul’s campaign for liberty and a return to Constitutional principles is strong and growing,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton. “We are confident that we will control the Maine delegation for the convention in August. Our campaign is so thankful to all of our supporters in Maine, and all over the nation, and we want them to know that we plan to take this message all the way to the White House.”

E-Update from the Desk of Governor Scott Walker

E-update from the Desk of Governor Scott Walker


One of the most important duties I have serving as your Governor is to provide you directly with updates related to the operation of our state government. In an effort to improve communication, periodically I will be sending out an e-update to provide you with more information about what is going on in state government. I also frequently provide updates on Facebook (Governor Scott Walker) and on Twitter (@govwalker). Please feel free to share this update with your family, friends, and others who may be interested in state government operations.
Company Moves Headquarters to Wisconsin
 
 
This week we saw another example of how we're turning things around in Wisconsin and why we’re headed in the right direction. I was proud to announce that Connecture, Inc. a software company currently based in Atlanta, Georgia is moving its headquarters to Wisconsin. One hundred high-paying professional technology jobs will result from this move over the next three years..
 
 
Information about the open positions and recruiting open houses can be found at www.conjecture.com/jobs or by calling 262-522-4815.
 
 
Adding Connecture to the state's economy will build off of our hub of medical technology development and innovation. Wisconsin has many great assets to offer employers from other states: dedicated and hardworking employees, a state government that supports private sector growth, a great infrastructure network—just to name a few.
 
 
This is just one of the many good stories taking place in Wisconsin. We are working tirelessly to recruit and retain employers who can provide our people with good-paying, family-sustaining jobs.
Moving forward, I will continue to advance pro-growth policies that help employers create jobs. I am optimistic that we will be able to attract more jobs by encouraging other businesses to relocate to our great state. Those employers not only help individuals who directly obtain a job with the company, but also serve as a supply chain for other businesses and ultimately result in increased economic activity for area communities.

Massive Settlement from Mortgage Lenders
 
 
This week I joined Attorney General Van Hollen and Secretary of the Department of Financial Institutions Peter Bildsten to announce that Wisconsin reached an agreement that provides an estimated $140 million—aimed at bringing relief to Wisconsinites who were harmed by unfair mortgage practices and will help prevent future deception from occurring.
Attorney General Van Hollen played a key role in securing this settlement for Wisconsin.
 
 
Under the agreement, mortgage servicers will be required to follow comprehensive "servicing standards" that will significantly reform all aspects of post-closing mortgage servicing. Among other things, the new standards will: (a) prevent robo-signing and other improper foreclosure practices; (b) require banks to offer loss-mitigation alternatives to borrowers before pursuing foreclosure; (c) increase the transparency of the loss mitigation process; (d) impose timelines for servicers to respond to borrowers; and (e) restrict the practice of “dual tracking,” where foreclosure is initiated despite the borrower’s engagement in a loss mitigation process.
 
 
Monetary benefits to Wisconsin will include:
  • Up to an estimated $60 million in benefits from loan modifications and other direct relief.
  • Approximately $17.2 million in uniform payments of up to $2,000 for eligible Wisconsin borrowers who lost their homes to foreclosure from January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2011, and suffered servicing abuses.
  • Approximately $31.3 million in refinancing benefits for eligible borrowers who are currently making payments but owe more than their home is worth.
  • Payment to the State of approximately $31.6 million that may be used for compensation to the State, future law enforcement efforts, additional relief to borrowers, civil penalties and/or funding of foreclosure relief and mitigation programs.
The five mortgage service providers entering into the settlement are Bank of America, J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Residential Capital (Ally Bank/GMAC), and Wells Fargo & Co.
 
 
I would encourage you to contact your mortgage servicer to obtain more information about specific loan modification programs to see if you qualify under terms of this settlement. More information is available at the Wisconsin DOJ homepage (www.doj.state.wi.us), including a list of frequently asked questions and ways you can seek assistance.
Just Ask the Governor: Part IV

Each e-update I will answer a question submitted by a recipient of the previous e-update or from someone who contacts my office directly.

Question: Is the state budget balanced and who makes that determination?
 
 
Answer: When I took office a year ago Wisconsin was facing a $3.6 billion budget shortfall for the 2011-13 state budget. The budget I signed into law last year eliminated this shortfall, avoided mass layoffs of public employees (which were experienced in other states), and protected property taxpayers.
 
 
Just this week the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau released updated numbers for the 2011-13 state budget. After taking into account recent revenue numbers and trends, Wisconsin is projected to have a budget surplus in the first fiscal year of our biennial budget. We will need to be even more vigilant in the next fiscal year (FY13).
 
 
The budget I signed into law reflected Wisconsin values by bringing our expenses in line with taxpayers’ ability to pay, all while increasing the amount of state taxpayer funds that go to help those truly in need through Medicaid related programs by $1.2 billion.
 
 
While honestly balancing our state budget required tough decisions to be made, it is important that our children and grandchildren are not saddled with the debt of our generation. The 2011-13 state budget leaves our state better off than we received it and lays the groundwork for long-term, sustainable economic growth.


It has been a pleasure communicating with you. It is an honor to serve as your Governor and represent the residents of Wisconsin.

Sincerely,



Governor Scott Walker

Revolution PAC: Take Virginia for Ron Paul

Take Virginia for Ron Paul

Revolution PAC is teaming up with the Ron Paul Alexandria Meetup group to take Virgina. This group has gone to Iowa, New Hampshire, and Louisiana with their excellent comparison chart of the candidates and have seen great results. Virgina is one of the many states that will hold their primary on Super Tuesday; March 6. This primary will be unique on that day because there are only two candidates on the ballot for the Republican Party. Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are the only candidates that qualified for this states primary process.

Sen. Ron Johnson: Weekly Report from Washington

February 10, 2012

Senator Johnson Sends Letter to Congressional Budget Office
Yesterday I joined with 36 other Senators to request that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) update its official estimate of the number of workers who will lose employer-provided health care and be ‘dumped’ into health insurance exchanges due to the 2010 health care law. The request was made in a joint letter to CBO Director Dr. Douglas Elmendorf.
To be able to claim that his health care plan would not increase the debt, the President and his allies in Congress engineered an unrealistic low-ball estimate of the cost of Obamacare. A key part of that fiction is an unrealistically low estimate of how many Americans will be dumped into the health insurance exchanges. The fact is that many millions more Americans will be put into this exchange costing hundreds of billions – possibly trillions of dollars more – if ObamaCare is not repealed. CBO owes the American public realistic estimate of the true cost of ObamaCare.”
The letter said:
“You acknowledged CBO’s willingness to reassess and revise its estimates when there is compelling evidence to do so. During a meeting in my office on December 8, 2011, you repeated this commitment and acknowledged that a number of national surveys of employers regarding this topic might provide that evidence.
“CBO’s staff has confirmed that you are actively reviewing this estimate and will provide your conclusion to Congress shortly after the President presents his FY2013 Budget.
“The purpose of this letter is to encourage CBO to go beyond a purely economic analysis of this decision matrix facing employers. That analysis has already been performed by former CBO Director Douglas Holtz-Eakin. His analysis showed 35 million Americans for whom both employer and employee would find it financially beneficial to drop employer-sponsored health care and obtain coverage through PPACA’s health exchanges. He estimated the additional cost of this would be nearly $1 trillion between 2014 and 2019.
“For many, if not most employers, the decision to drop or retain coverage will not be the result of a perfect economic analysis. It is more likely to rely on a very linear choice between two alternatives: (1) the employer incurring the $15,000 annual cost of family coverage, or (2) the employer paying the $2,000 fine and thereby making the employees eligible for many thousands of dollars in subsidies through the exchanges. That decision is likely to be a simple one for many businesses, especially in this troubled economy.”

Senator Johnson Questions Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke at Senate Budget Committee Hearing
On Tuesday, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke testified in front of the Senate Budget Committee.
Just a few days ago, President Obama said that it’s important to have a plan to deliver ‘good jobs and good wages.’ Today Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke confirmed that tax and regulatory uncertainty is standing in the way.
I have said many times that I am prepared to work with anyone who is serious about addressing our nation’s challenges. I believe that we need tax and regulatory certainty to help encourage economic growth. Regrettably, the President has refused to work with me – or with the many Members of the House and Senate who agree. I hope that Chairman Bernanke’s testimony causes the President to reconsider his refusal to listen to those on the other side of the aisle.

Press Release: Ron Paul Issues Statement on Obama Contraception Decision

Ron Paul Issues Statement on Obama Contraception Decision


“I am the only GOP presidential candidate who has consistently opposed the federal promotion, funding, and mandating of contraception and abortion”

LAKE JACKSON, Texas– Congressman and 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul issued the following statement regarding the Obama Administration’s announcement that religious organizations must pay for contraception and sterilization under the national health care law:
 
“Forcing private religious institutions to pay for contraception and sterilization as part of their health care plans is a direct assault on the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty. On my first day as President, I will reverse this policy. Repealing the unconstitutional monstrosity known as ObamaCare is a major part of my Plan to Restore America.

“I am the only GOP presidential candidate who has consistently opposed the federal promotion, funding, and mandating of contraception and abortion. Unlike Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, I never voted to provide taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood. And unlike Mitt Romney, whose Massachusetts health care plan contained a contraceptive mandate similar to the one contained in ObamaCare, I have never supported any government health care mandates.

“When one compares my record with that of my opponents, it is clear that I am the only choice for Americans seeking a candidate they can trust to reverse the Obama administration’s assault on their religious and other liberties.”

This is the most recent statement in a series of comments issued by Paul regarding this move by the Obama Administration. You can find the August 4th statement here, and find the October 3rd statement here, and the statement applauding Becket Fund’s defense of Belmont Abbey College here.

Straw Polls vs. Collecting Delegates

Straw Polls vs. Collecting Delegates

Last night was a good night for Ron Paul. But it was a better night than many might realize.

The desire to accumulate as many delegates as possible has long been the campaign’s primary focus. After all, this is how one becomes the nominee. But collecting delegates is not the same thing as winning the straw polls, which obviously make the headlines.

Jim DeMint: Why Republicans Must Become More Libertarian

Israel Today magazine: Israeli hospital saves Arab girl's heart

Article courtesy of Israel Today magazine, www.israeltoday.co.il.

Tuesday, February 07, 2012 | Ryan Jones

Israeli hospital saves Arab girl's heart
Those evil, apartheid-imposing Israelis were at it again last month, providing free emergency medical treatment that saved the life of a 12-year-old Palestinian Arab girl from Gaza who had a serious heart defect.

In a press release publihshed this week, Rambam Medical Center in Haifa revealed that young Aya Almasal actually died while en route from Gaza to the northern Israel port city.

Having suffered from unexplained and sudden bouts of unconsciousness her entire life, "Aya set out for Rambam to treat this problem... [but] upon leaving Gaza, she felt ill and her situation steadily deteriorated," read the release. "As the girl neared Rambam, her heart stopped working and she was, in effect, dead."

Israeli medics and doctors managed with great effort to resuscitate their young Arab patient and implant a life-saving pacemaker. Aya was later diagnosed with Long QT Syndrome, a birth defect that causes irregular and rapid heart rate, and prevents blood from reaching the brain, resulting in a sudden loss of consciousness.

After a month of treatment and close monitoring, Aya was discharged last Thursday "standing on her own two feet" and ready to return home and start life anew.

Aya is but an example of the overwhelming compassion Israel often demonstrates toward its Arab neighbors, even those from territories that are violently hostile toward the Jewish state.

Rambam Medical Center alone treats hundreds of Arab children and youth from across the Middle East on an humanitarian basis ever year. The hospital's public relations department noted that "a number of Palestinian patients are currently at the [Pediatric Cardiology] department, among them a three-week old infant scheduled for heart surgery, and a 40-day old baby who needs a stent procedure."

And Rambam is far from the only Israeli hospital that provides such care to its "enemies." Israel Today has previously written about a group of Israeli surgeons who donate their time to a humanitarian organization called "Save a Child's Heart" that has provided life-saving surgery to well over 2,000 Arab children to date.

Kind of paints a much different picture than the apartheid narrative insisted upon by Israel's antagonists.

Ron Paul Surging in Latest National Poll

Ron Paul Surging in Latest National Poll

Poll shows Texas Congressman on the rise

LAKE JACKSON, Texas– 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul remains competitive in the race for the nomination according to a new Reuters/Ipsos Poll.

Paul scores a solid second with 21 percent of the vote, faring better nationally than fellow GOP competitors Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. These latest numbers show Paul gaining on his main competitor nationally, Mitt Romney, whose support seems to be fading with 29 percent. Paul’s support grew by 5 percentage points nationally since January, while Romney has seen a 30 percent decline in his support since January.

“This poll further illustrates that Ron Paul is emerging as the real conservative alternative to Mitt Romney, and that he can also obtain the needed support from Independents and disenfranchised Democrats to defeat President Obama in November.” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

This poll follows a January 30th Gallup Poll showing Paul within the margin of error of defeating Obama. Also, a January 16th CNN/ORC Poll showed Paul and Obama in a virtual tie in a general election showdown.

Update from the House Republican Study Committee (RSC)

RSC Update: ObamaCare’s Attack on Religious Freedom


From the Chairman

If the CLASS Act is a microcosm of the gimmicks and dishonesty involved in creating ObamaCare, one recently imposed regulation is the clearest expression yet of how government-run health care will trample on Americans’ constitutional rights.


Most people commonly associate the First Amendment with freedom of speech, but its first words are actually to guarantee us freedom of religion. Yet, under an ideological new rule handed down by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, many organizations affiliated with the Catholic Church will be required to provide free contraceptives, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs in their employees’ health insurance plans.


Forcing Catholic hospitals, schools, and charities to subsidize contraception and abortion is a blatant attack on the freedom of religion that Americans have valued since the days of the Pilgrims. People of all faiths and political views should be able to agree that this action is unacceptable.


Conservatives in the House and Senate will fight this violation of religious freedom. With a groundswell of support from you and other concerned Americans, I know we can win. Please spread the word.


God Bless,


Congressman Jim Jordan

Chairman, Republican Study Committee
