Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner says the GOP must win over independents by standing up for principles such as opposing massive government spending. He says the Democrats' idea of spending and borrowing to prosperity has "never happened in the history of the human race." It's this expansion of spending into the trillions that he considers the greatest mark against the Obama administration, something the senior lawmaker says will strap future generations with debt.
As the highest ranking Republican on the Global Warming Committee , Sensenbrenner also plans on fighting cap and trade on carbon emissions, an "outrageous plan" he believes will drive up the costs of electricity as well as outsource more jobs to China and India.
At the Wisconsin Republican Convention, the Menomonee Falls Republican read through a laundry list of the President's first 100 days . The crowd booed at mentions of things like Obama bowing to the Saudi king, holding a town hall in France and calling for the repeal of REAL ID.
