Boehner @ CPAC: "We Are Going to Cut $100 Billion" Next Week
Speaker.gov ^ | 2/11/2011 | Don Seymour

Posted on 04/09/2011 9:52:11 AM PDT by Right Wingnut 2

Boehner on Cutting $100 Billion in Discretionary Spending Next Week:

"The American people have directed us to cut spending. We will. And there’s no limit to the amount we’re willing to cut to help get our economy moving again. Let me be very clear about this: we are going to exceed our Pledge to America. We are going to cut $100 billion in discretionary spending next week. Write it down. $100 billion in discretionary spending. And we aren’t going to stop there."

I think all the “cuts” that are going to be made, have already been done. Pathetic.

Boehner didn’t get the November 2010 message apparently nor did several others. It’s time for The Tea Party to publish names of those we need to vote out in 2012 and those we need to find candidates to replace.

One step at a time. Give him support, it is hard to be called called down for ever forward move. Of course, the republicans do not have the power to make these changes , they are not in power, they only have the house, if all stand by their party. Criticism comes easy. Change is difficult and hard won.

Get behind John and pray for his strength and success in this endeavor. Ask God to forgive us our wanton ways and to block funding of planned parenthood. Which is a huge expensive death machine to our population growth in America. Wrong on any level. Rare is it that a woman might die because of childbirth. It is a risk of being alive. To abort millions of babies is sinful, before God and we are receiving troubles caused by it. MO

good analogy, Boehner is like a hitter that is only good for sacrifice hits to (hopefully) advance the runner. Too bad all our Republicans on base are like Thurman Munson or Lou Pinella which run like molasses.

We don't have the senate or the white house. Boehner cut nearly the best deal we would have got.

Its not perfect by any measure, but its is a good start, and they can still tackle planned 'parenthood' later. Its easy to sit in a chair trash the Republicans on the internet, but in reality nobody could have done much better.

We have to start somewhere and Boehner is doing that.

Until we have the Senate and the WH, the GOP doesn't have the power. <

It's amazing that people actually believe that Boehner can achieve it alone. Do they have a CLUE as to how it works in DC?

I THINK NOT.

I agree. Give him a break, he did inherit a tough and difficult job. I repeat it is impossible to force it. If we close down areas of the government, we know the liberals always, always make it effect the firemen, police, senior services, children's lunches, etc. not the hundreds of millions in dumb unnecessary, discretionary spending of ear marks, etc.

so of course, many of the denied services raise outcry and everyone begins to cave at home. It is impossible to make all the conservatives toe the line when they are in trouble at home

IT IS A DIFFICULT CONUNDRUM TO BREAK THROUGH.

a TURN OUT OF ALL THE ENTRTENCHED MIGHT HELP.

Yeah - lets all hold our breath... at least that is what Obama would like us to do... hold our breath until Repubs grow a backbone and actually DO cut spending.

Since it won’t happen, there will be a mass die-off of Conservatives.

Dems aren’t stuck on stupid. They know EXACTLY what they are doing (though many are dumb sheep to the larger agenda at work). They have no moral compass - so stealing from future generations to pay for their socialist programs is not a problem.

I agree. The same people who are bitching about Boenher now are the same people who spent more time in 2008 complaining about McCain than they did 0bama. They also forget that a famous governor who ran for Presdient promissed to eliminate the Dept of Engery and the Dept of Education in 1979.

Discretionary spending? How about defunding Bozocare, how about cutting foreign aide, how about setting up a gradual phasing out of SS and medicare, say starting with people at about age 45, so that in 10 years or so no one will have to pay old people like me to retire? Privatization of SS would do it. How about taking all illegals off of any aide programs except for immediate life threatening health care before being deported back to where ever they came from? How about eliminating EPA, Homeland security, TSA, dept of indoctrination, uhh...education, the FDA and other useless government departments?

Grow a pair GOP. I received a funding letter from the GOP yesterday and sent it back with a letter telling them to grow a pair or I would never support them again, which I don't do now.

I admire your patience.

However I think we need to light a fire under their butts. We've long since passed the point of patient hope.

The last time we trusted these pukes they squandered control of all three branches of government.

Fool me once... you know how it goes.

We have no tolerance for betrayal nor failure any more.

Sorry, but you are wrong on that one. The Republicans have all the power they need. They control Congress and the purse strings that come with it.

They could have shut the government down and not worry about what they think Americans think, they could have gotten everything they wanted.

The Debt Cieling will be the big test. If they stand strong and dont make a deal to increase the debt limit, it is game over for spending.

But I assume that all the seniors,women and children that will be affected according to the Dems will be more than enough to allow the Republicans to give in.....

To: Caipirabob; All

I CONCUR WITH THESE FEELINGS. IT MAKES NO SENSE TO CUT OFF OUR NOSE TO SPITE OUR FACE.

WE NEED TO BE MORE VOCAL WITH ALL OUR REPRESENTATIVES, AND SENATORS, MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD. DUMPIONG THE WHOLE THING IS NOT LIKELY TO HAPPEN OR WORK. IT TAKES SOME KNOWLEDGE, AND IF NONE OF THEM HAVE ANY WE ARE SHOT IN THE FOOT AGAIN.

We have turned away from God as a people and it is destroying us as a nation. Wise up. God is displeased.

2 Chronicles 7:13-14

2 Chronicles 7:13-14 (King James Version)

” 13.If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;

14.If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If we continue down this ungodly path in America ... we will likely fall. We are bringing it on ourselves.

In history it is always this way. We seem to be unbelievers ... and thus are doomed. Now or in the life to come.

As far as I’m concerned, letting Planned Parenthood get funded, with a promise of a separate bill that he KNOWS will never be passed, is the bottom line.

Boehner is finished. He must be removed from the Speakership. Everything he has done so far has been business as usual.

Boehmer DID win a little one—a strong conservative Speaker would have won it all—the Tea Party has the Democrats on the ropes right now—in spite of mendacious Leftist MSM (now including Fox News) polling.
Still,if not for the Tea Party,Boehner would have caved completely—so our,as Chuck U Schumer and other Leftists are told to say by Commie Boss Soros,”extremist” rhetoric shoved at least a semi-rigid backbone up his weepy butt.

That is what ‘worked’ before. Which is why they keep doing it. Their way has ‘worked’. We are too ready to make and keep the peace. MO

Time will tell whether it is a good idea of reality or a inaccurate one.

I pray I am wrong, cause this is a bleak view ahead of America...

And we are the hope of the world!

God help us in this day, guide us, teach us, in Jesus name, amen.
