  • Lance: Time to Audit the Fed!

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog He doesn’t exactly boast Ron Paul’s reputation as a firebrand, Save Jerseyans, but Rep. Leonard Lance (R, NJ-07) has been a solid conservative voice on many fiscal issues since arriving in Washington. The latest example? From the realm of monetary policy… He’s co-sponsoring H.R. 24, the “Federal Reserve Transparency Act” which, […]


  • Lance takes to YouTube: “We are off to a great start”

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Remember all of that baloney about an “obstructionist” GOP House, Save Jerseyans?

  • The coup that wasn’t followed by the whining that was

    By Scott St. Clair You would have thought that the political silly season ended after the November mid-term elections. You would have thought that since normally it does, but if you did, you were wrong because it continues on in the paroxysmal histrionics over the re-election of Ohio’s John Boehner to another term as Speaker […]


  • Lost Love for Mia? Be Sure It’s Your Own Decision

    By Alyssa Lafage | The Save Jersey Blog I just caught up on Glenn’s monologue from Wednesday, Save Jerseyans, and I’m disappointed to say the least concerning his opinion of Mia Love’s vote for Speaker Boehner. I am a firm believer that talk radio has an important role to play. It has done/can do a lot of good in motivating […]


  • Lance Renews Battle for Balanced Budget Amendment

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) didn’t waste any time on Tuesday, Save Jerseyans, kicking off the 114th Congress by pitching a balanced budget amendment to the United States Constitution.  “Many states, including New Jersey, are required to balance their state budgets, yet the federal government continues to spend more than […]


  • Garrett Bails But Boehner Survives

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog So I guess the likes of Trey Gowdy and Mia Love are “Rinos” now having not voted against John Boehner, Save Jerseyans? That’s what you’re going to hear from the far reaches of social media land this afternoon after Speaker John Boehner survived a cosmetic coup vote at […]

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Members of the 114th U.S. Congress will be seated at Noon today, Save Jerseyans, and two new congressmen from New Jersey (Tom MacArthur in NJ-03 and Bonnie Watson Coleman in NJ-12) will be among them. Looming large? The arrival of a GOP-controlled Senate and a largely symbolic demonstration […]



  • MacArthur to Succeed Runyan on House Armed Services Committee

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Congressman-Elect Tom MacArthur (R, NJ-3) will succeed Jon Runyan not just in the House of Representatives but, critically, on the powerful House Armed Services Committee (HASC) when the incoming 114th Congress is installed this January. That puts him in prime position to advocate for (and defend, when necessary) the […]


  • Lance: Obama “brought us closer to constitutional confrontation”

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog No commentary required for Rep. Leonard Lance’s respond to Thursday night’s absurd executive action announcement, Save Jerseyans: “President Obama has stretched his constitutional powers and his actions this evening have brought us closer to a constitutional confrontation.  Rather than work constructively with the new 114th Congress in […]


  • Lance reappointed as Vice Chair of key subcommittee

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The big New Jersey House delegation story today is Frank Pallone’s upset victory for top ranking Democrat on the influential House Energy and Commerce Committee over the Pelosi-backed Anna Eshoo, Save Jerseyans, but Republicans will boast a strong majority in the U.S. House of Representatives beginning in January, and […]


  • Pallone bests Eshoo in seniority vote

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog In what can’t be interpreted as anything other than a blow to the power of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Save Jerseyans, the Garden State’s own Frank Pallone (D, NJ-06) has triumphed in his fight to become the top ranking Democrat on the influential House Energy and Commerce Committee.
