    Having two Senators from one state on one committee (Isakson/Perdue on Foreign Relations) is a bit rare. Hey! …..join the Senate—see the world!

    Thad Cochran (Miss.) chairing Appropriations makes me sick. The establishment is “In Control” w/ him there.

    McConnell on Appropriations & Rules makes is clear he wants will command central control.

  2. jbsimpson81 says:

    Senate Rules is not nearly as powerful as it is in the House, because bills aren’t debated under a rule.

  3. James Fannin says:

    This is the first time since Richard Russell joined the Senate that Georgia has not had a senator on the Armed Services Committee. Georgia arguably has greater military interests at stake than any other state represented by a Republican on the SASC with the exception of Ted Cruz. David Perdue just defeated the daughter of the former Chairman of the SASC and he earned that seat. This just made Georgia’s fight in the next round of BRAC that much more difficult because the Pentagon naturally is more responsive to Defense Appropriators and members of the Armed Services Committees. Austin Scott is now our lone Republican serving on the House Armed Services Committee and he has his work cut out for him. Hank Johnson is on the HASC as well but unfortunately he is best known at the Pentagon for expressing his fear in Congressional hearings that the Pentagon may capsize Guam by stationing too many people there.

  4. James Fannin says:

    Protecting the military interests of Georgia and efficiently and effectively protecting our nation are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Georgia installations represent great military value and often times it takes an effective voice advocating on behalf of a state to keep the Pentagon and their political appointees from making a bad decision for political purposes. This may come as a shock but politics has been known to occur in Washington, sometimes even inside the E-Ring.

      Mac should have been closed long before it did get closed, Gordon should have closed years ago, Lockheed f22 was a waste and I question continued A10 funding to keep Robbins going. Just a few examples of “great military value.”
