It’s no secret to loyal RightMi.com readers that I have little use for, Rep. Dan “Enough is Enough” Benishek. You see, good ‘ol slow-talking Doctor Dan, has this history of wanting to portray himself as a “Constitutional conservative” only to vote to raise the debt ceiling, reauthorize the NDAA, and vote to fund Obamacare. That’s a “Constitutional conservative”?

Benishemp-RINOHardly, and his 1% margin over Gary McDowell, in 2012, certainly serves to highlight that CD-1 voters see Doctor Dan as a fraud who happened to be in the right place at the right time in 2010, for certain movers and shakers within the state Party’s apparatchik.

Well, upon discovery, I just happened across Doctor Dan’s new allegiance to the Progressive Country Club, or as founder Fred Upton, would like to convince us unapologetic Conservatives, his “main street partnership”. Frankly, I do not see one thing considered normal, Constitutional, nor even Conservative about its founders and their Democrat-lite mission statement.

It is though, a clear sign of how desperate Dan Benishek is to remain in office.

It’s time for Doctor Dan to be booted from the District of Corruption, and back to his private life of billing Medicaid/Medicare.

Vote your conscience tomorrow.

I am.

The Only One

homer-constThe Michigan congressional delegation Republicans had the right idea with regard to Roll Call 61.

Except for Michigan’s very own captain courageous, Dave Camp.  Camp along with 27 other GOP congressional critters carried the water for Democrats and Barack Obama.

Maybe he was confused by the title of the bill that raised the debt ceiling?  Only in government, can a bill with the title:

To designate the air route traffic control center located in Nashua, New Hampshire, as the “Patricia Clark Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center”

be used to continue out of control spending by an unaccountable administration that needs to have its criminal leadership removed, not rewarded with more resources.

Going forward in Michigan’s 4ths congressional district, there IS another choice.

Thanks, Doc: But I Will Be Getting A Second Opinion

A commentary piece as read by a Rep. Benishek constituent, via the good folks at MCC.   

U.S. Rep. Dan Benishek speaks out against vague language in legislationBy Rep. Dan Benishek

Imagine government without responsibility toward its citizens — let me give you a hint, it looks a lot like Syria’s Bashar al-Assad regime.

America is blessed with a Constitution that protects Americans so they are not afraid that each new leader will turn the country into a fascist nation. No matter how much anyone disagrees with a president’s policies, we can take solace in the protections of the Constitution.

The Constitution’s authority is supreme and every piece of legislation must fit within the Constitution’s limits.

Roger that, Doc.  So far, we’re on the same page.  Let’s continue…
