This "government" is on autopilot to tyranny. The so-called lawmakers have no interest in putting the brakes on the obama agenda or on anything that approaches a reform if it limits their personal power. I am ashamed of each and every member of Congress, with the possible exception of Ted Cruz. They continue to vote in favor of govt over reach and have no care or concern for the country or their oath of office.

"The president's re-election campaign?" persisted Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.

"No," said Miller.
