Mike Lee Coming To South Carolina

U.S. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) – one of the few true fiscally conservative members of the U.S. Congress – will pay a visit to South Carolina next month. The first-term lawmaker will headline GOP gadfly Mallory Factor’s “Charleston Meeting” on the evening of Monday September 9.

The invitation only event will be held at the Harbor Club in downtown Charleston, S.C.

Lee, 42, is the leader of the conservative effort to defund U.S. President Barack Obama’s socialized medicine law in the Senate – an effort which it’s worth noting is not supported by U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.)

“I want at least two votes, a bare minimum of two votes, ” Lee has said of his proposal – which is supported by U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and other fiscal conservatives. “One vote to fund everything else in government, one vote to fund Obamacare. What I’m saying is if Obamacare can’t stand and get funded on its merits, its own two legs, it doesn’t deserve to be funded.”

We eagerly await what Lee has to say about his effort … and about the refusal of Graham and other liberal “Republicans” like Lamar Alexander, John Cornyn and Mitch McConnell to support it.

Obviously we’ve made it abundantly clear where we stand on the issue …

At what point did he agree with the inclusion of “black folk” in the Temple?

Ooh! I can’t wait to be pandered to. While Lee’s at it, maybe we can get him to demand a vote to defund Medicare?

Democrats are in a majority in the Senate. Yes or no? If yes, then this grandstanding issue is DOA whether Graham supports it or not.

Mike Lee, just another contestant in the 2013 Dumbass Olympics. Too bad this colossal clod just unknowingly acknowledged that while he wants to defund Obamacare, he is perfectly fine with rubber stamping the continuing funding of EVERY OTHER GOVERNMENT PROGRAM.

Have fun explaining why no other government program deserves the same “stand on your merits” scrutiny Obamacare suddenly should have. You know, like the several NSA programs that could use some defnuding. Warrantless spying? Meh. Insurance exchanges and banning preexisting conditions? OMG THE HORROR!!1

Yep, we fired Bob Bennett and replaced him with this guy. But kept Orrin Hatch so we could keep our NSA Spy Center in Utah. Now the Mormons are sifting through all your emails and phone calls.

Maybe somebody should ask Lee not just why Graham, Alexander, Cornyn and McConnell didn’t sign his letter, but why it is being rejected by the majority of Republicans in the US Senate. The last I heard he didn’t have but eleven or twelve signers. That’s not a very good percentage out of 41 senators.

Painful to watch.

My six month old grandson has much more magical power panties than Mr. Lee. Last time I saw him he got a big toothless grin on his face as he squeezed one out. I had to open all the windows and put a fan in the doorway while all the visiting relatives were gasping in the front yard.

Forgot the part about the short sell of Lee’s house where he beat the bank out of $400,000. Now THERE’S some fiscal responsibility!

I think I’ll wait to see what he has to say before condemning the man. The fact that all the slobbering RINOs and Democrats rushed to the site to damn the man, makes me even more curious to see what he has to say. I know he’s for killing Obamacare by defunding, so that’s a plus.

He wants your MONEY. His first official act in the US Senate was to seek to start his own PAC so he could raise money to support his main cause, himself. Hold on to your money South Carolina. 10% of it will go to the Mormon Church so you’ll at least get a 10% tax write off for charity.He’ll get the rest to keep after Utah throws him out of office.

Polyphemos September 3, 2013 at 9:11 pm

Of course he wants money. Money is the lifeblood of scoundrels and patriots. You can’t have politics without money. You don’t make changes without money. If he does try to give it to the Mormon church, it will get reported. I just want to hear what he has to say. From HIS mouth.

Why is Lee holding a pamphlet with Mormon church founder, Joseph Smith, on the cover in the above photo?

Sorry South Carolina, Mike Lee is not related to Robert E Lee, but he is related to John Doyle Lee, a prominent early Latter-day Saint who was executed for his role in the Mountain Meadows massacre.
