Richard Mourdock  Tea Party Puppet


  • Mourdock
    spent $2 million in taxpayer funds in a lawsuit opposing the Chrysler
    rescue -- putting over 100,000 Indiana jobs at risk.


    In 2010, Mourdock penned an editorial in the South Bend Tribune, in
    which he wrote, “By any traditional legal analysis, fundamental elements
    of the Obama administration’s Chrysler bankruptcy plan were illegal. It
    turned 200 years of U.S. bankruptcy law on its head by awarding more
    value to a select group of unsecured creditors than to secured
    creditors. Others are apparently willing to tolerate the violation of
    federal bankruptcy laws simply because they liked the result: It helped
    their friends. But most Americans, including the Hoosier retirees who
    had their property stolen away, see such picking and choosing by the
    federal government as fundamentally un-American.”
  • Mourdock believes bipartisanship is wrong.
    At the 2012 CPAC, The Dallas Morning News reported, "Those who want to
    call out for bipartisanship are wrong,’ Indiana treasurer and Senate
    candidate Richard Mourdock said. ‘It is bipartisanship that has taken
    this country to the very brink of bankruptcy.’”


  • Mourdock believed that the United States needed “more partisanship.”
    According to the Evansville Courier & Press, Mourdock pointed to
    Lugar's bipartisanship as a major problem and impetus for his campaign.
    ‘I was amazed at the lame duck session,’ Mourdock told supporters at the
    Indianapolis Artsgarden. ‘He’s known for his bipartisanship.’ After the
    speech, Mourdock added, ‘I think there needs to be more partisanship
    and frankly it’s based on principle. Again, elections have consequences.
    We should have consequences. Each party should define itself on those
    principles.’”

  • Mourdock would cut more than $5 billion in funding from Indiana students
    Mourdock wants to eliminate the Department of Education if he gets into
    the Senate, which would cut more than $5 billion from Indiana schools
    and students.

  • Mourdock said he wanted repeal of direct election of Senators.
    At a campaign event on February 4, 2012 Mourdock stated, "Repealing the
    17th amendment. Do I think it will ever happen? No. Is it something
    that I would like to see? Yes it is."

  • Mourdock supported legislation that would force deep cuts to Social Security and Medicare and cost Americans 700,000 jobs.
    In July 2011, CNHI reported that “[Mourdock is] convinced that raising
    the debt ceiling will result in its own severe consequences, dragging
    the nation deeper and deeper into debt. He‘s an avid supporter of the
    so-called ‘Cut, Cap, and Balance‘ bill that would mandate a balanced
    federal budget.” Mourdock has signed the Cut, Cap, and Balance pledge.


  • VIDEO: Mourdock challenged the constitutionality of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

    In April 2011, Mourdock spoke at a Madison Tea Party event and stated
    “Sixty percent of our budget, sixty percent of our budget this year,
    will be for Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. I challenge you in
    Article I, Section 8 of the United States Constitution where those
    so-called enumerated powers are listed. I challenge you to find words
    that talk about Medicare or Medicaid or, yes, even Social Security. You
    know, Article I, Section 8 says the U.S. government shall have the power
    to tax to pay off its debts, to pay for its defense, and then it says
    to provide for the general welfare.”



And that's just the beginning. Watch this video below to hear from
Richard Mourdock himself and you'll find a man determined to push his
radical agenda no matter the cost, not focused on fighting for what's
best for Indiana.
You!

    This guy Mourdock is a right wing nut case if their ever was one. In it for the richest 1% is obvious. The hell with the rest of the country.

    Bipartisanship is when both parties refuse to listen to their constituents and follow the Democrat agenda of expansive government influence.
    A Tea Party man is nobody's puppet.

    He sounds just like the people I was describing in my post about the GOP going the way of the Whig Party. I guess he's not accustomed to engaging his gray matter to think that "to provide for the general welfare" wouldn't cover Medicare, Medicaid & Social Security. Yup, he's rowing with one oar.
