Carney: GOPers Admit Benghazi About ‘Trying to Raise Money and Motivate Their Base’

Mediaite

During an appearance on MSNBC on Friday, NBC News reporter Kristen Welker grilled White House Press Sec. Jay Carney about how the White House views the establishment of a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attack. Carney said that the investigation is unnecessary and even Republicans have confessed that the effort is not aimed at uncovering the truth but to increase campaign donations and excite the GOP base.

“House Republicans, in what is a blatantly political and partisan effort, voted to start another investigation into this matter,” Carney began, “presumably because the six previous investigations by Congress, by Republicans, were somehow not adequate.”

“It’s unfortunate that House Republicans continue to pursue this in a highly partisan manner,” he added. “And, in fact, they themselves have acknowledged how political it is and how oriented it is toward trying to raise money and motivate their base for a midterm election.”

  1. Raising the min wage would lift some folks out of proverty, thereby reducing the cost of food stamps, but it woiuld also be a big boost for seniors and Soc Sec….. add back into the fund a tiny bit of what they have stolen so far… apparently raising the SS payaroll tax also a no, no for Republicans…..

    Raising min wage would devastate Paul Ryan….. and his budget for the Koch’s agenda…..
