Posted on 07/02/2010 6:15:43 AM PDT by opentalk
Last night, as part of a procedural vote on the emergency war supplemental bill, House Democrats attached a document that deemed as passed a non-existent $1.12 trillion budget. The execution of the deeming document allows Democrats to start spending money for Fiscal Year 2011 without the pesky constraints of a budget.
The procedural vote passed 215-210 with no Republicans voting in favor and 38 Democrats crossing the aisle to vote against deeming the faux budget resolution passed.
Never before -- since the creation of the Congressional budget process -- has the House failed to pass a budget, failed to propose a budget then deemed the non-existent budget as passed as a means to avoid a direct, recorded vote on a budget, but still allow Congress to spend taxpayer money.
House Budget Committee Ranking Member Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) warned this was the green light for Democrats to continue their out-of-control spending virtually unchecked.
Facing a record deficit and a tidal wave of debt, House Democrats decided it was politically inconvenient to put forward a budget and account for their fiscal recklessness. With no priorities and no restraints, the spending, taxing, and borrowing will continue unchecked for the coming fiscal year, Ryan said. The so-called budget enforcement resolution enforces no budget, but instead provides a green light for the Appropriators to continue spending, exacerbating our looming fiscal crisis.

The mask has almost completely slipped off their lizard faces.
We are moving inexorably to a one party system. We are disfranchised when our representatives are barred from voting.
The democrats are completely out of control and ignoring law as they see fit and nothing is done to stop them.
Our votes mean NOTHING.
We the people deem all incumbents up for reelection as losing their seats. Furthermore we deem the DOE(Department of Education), EPA, FDA and the FCC as abolished since regulating education, the environment, Foods/Drugs and communications are not enumerated powers in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution!
I think the phrase that pays is “taxation without representation.”
..Pence also offered a reality check for the American people.
House Republicans advice to the American people is that when it comes to a Democrat budget, dont blink, Pence said. The reality is that you cant deem a federal budget that you never passed. For the first time in the history of this institution, since the Budget Act, Democrats will actually deem a budget that never went through the ordinary process of choosing and deciding on the priorities of the American people.
The MSM should be charged with sedition.
Claire Wolfe, call your office.
They seem to be activists in the downfall of our freedoms. I wonder what foreign influences and ownership are involved with the MSM.
The Democrats are acting like outlaws.
House Democrats Deem Faux $1.1 Trillion Budget as Passed
Let me guess... and the “passage” of the “faux budget” was “deemed as constitutional” by those very same Demonrats?
They’re NOT acting, they ARE outlaws...
The democrats are taking ownership of this economy.
There is absolutely no rule of law any more....
