Weekly Wrap-Up

Shaun Marie featured this story earlier in the week about Sheldon Silver’s massive conflict of interest on the question of “hydrofracking.”

According to The Post, “As Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver leads the fight to block a type of natural-gas drilling in New York, his private law firm is in other states trying to drum up multimillion-dollar lawsuits against the practice...”

What do you think? Do you agree with the Conservative Party that Speaker Silver should recuse himself from the debate over hydrofracking since his law firm stands to make a pretty penny through big lawsuits on the issues? Give your opinion today on our new Weekly Poll.

More on the bold plan in Congress for reining in out-of-control federal spending...

And here in New York, the Conservative Party is leading a statewide push for spending restraint and fiscal responsibility. I talked about our plan on Capital Tonight. See the interview here.

Conservatives in Washington (including New York Republicans elected with Conservative Party support) have also voted to repeal Obamacare...

... and are now leading a new health care debate in Congress.

Charles Krauthammer explores the phony arguments in support of Obamacare.

Next up: A bipartisan effort to make sure our tax dollars aren’t used to fund abortions.

And states are taking serious action too (but not New York, unfortunately).

Have a great weekend!
