  1. It’s quaint that the Republicans want to stop the practice, but how about prosecuting Obama, Holder, et al for this corruption?

  2. The Obama administration was funding sedition.
    That in itself is a criminal enterprise.
    Where’s the DOJ and FBI investigation?
    How about a special prosecutor to investigate?

  3. That’s partly my money.
    I want it back.
    Whoever had a hand in doling it out, needs to go to jail.

  4. there are a whole bunch of leftist NGO’s and organizations whose taxpayer funding we need to eliminate
    1) Planned Parenthood
    2) La Raza
    3) NPR
    4) PBS
    5) Suthren Poverty Law Center

    feel free to add to the list, y’all
