According to Draper, the guest list that night included Republican Representatives Eric Cantor (VA), Kevin McCarthy (CA), Paul Ryan (WI), Pete Sessions (TX), Jeb Hensarling (TX), Pete Hoekstra (MI) and Dan Lungren (CA), along with Republican Senators Jim DeMint (SC), Jon Kyl (AZ), Tom Coburn (OK), John Ensign (NV), and Bob Corker (TN). The non-lawmakers present included Newt Gingrich and Frank Luntz, the long-time Republican wordsmith.
For about 4 hours in the Caucus Room (a pricey D.C. establishment), the book says they plotted out ways to not just win back political power but to also block Obama's legislative platform.
All of these Republican lawmakers should be brought up on charges of treason, removed from office, and not be eligible for their "cushy" $174,000 per year lifetime pensions! They are responsible for this country's credit downgrading, the extreme gridlock in Congress, and holding back America's progress these past 3.5 years. I find them despicable and disgusting!
Paul Ryan, the Republican nominee for Vice President who sat in on this treasonous meeting, now has the gall to say that President Obama has no record on which to run when that was the Gang of Fifteen's plan in a nutshell.
President Obama wanted to work in a bipartisan manner to solve this nation's problems, but he has been stymied and blocked at every turn. That is why I plan to vote early for the President today in Texas!
