House Democrats ‘Deem’ Faux $1.1 Trillion Budget ‘as Passed’
Human Events ^ | July 2, 2010 | Connie Hair

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.”

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!

from related article, same author

..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, don’t blink,” Pence said. “The reality is that you can’t 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.”

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?

DEEM ON
With apologies to AeroSmith

Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody’s sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life
Is in books’ written pages
Lived and learned from fools and
From sages
You know it’s true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away, yeah

Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tear
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

DEEM On DEEM On DEEM On
DEEM until the DEEM come true
DEEM On DEEM On DEEM On
DEEM until your DEEM comes true
DEEM On DEEM On DEEM On
DEEM On DEEM On
DEEM On DEEM On

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tear
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tear
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away...

If I increase my exemptions to a level where my withholding approaches 0 ...

and next April 15th, send the IRS a voided check made out to F Off ... with an explanation on the memo line that I've deemed your taxes paid

... I'll go to jail.

If a million or so people do this ... what happens then?

--38 Democrats crossing the aisle to vote against deeming the faux budget resolution passed.

Seems like the rest of the party has been taken over by Obama Marxist progressives.

Connie Hair’s phrasing might be a little tangled, perhaps. Didn’t Speaker “My principles are firm as April ice” Gingrich walk part of the way down the same path in the 90s? Something about not voting in the House until after elections?

215+210=425

There are 435 members of congress.

Who are the 10 congresscritters that didn’t vote on something this important to the American people?

On June 30, the Federal EPA cancelled the operating permits for over 125 refineries & chemical plants in Texas. They have been operating over 16 years on Texas EPA permits & all the air tests in Texas show improvement.

This is another power play on the part of NObama. Keep the oil spill going & shut down refineries.

Those refineries in Texas represent over 33% of all the DAILY fuel production in the USA. How long before the price of gasoline is approaching the $7 or $9 a gallon that NObama desires to keep us from driving?

Seems an intentional way to hurt the economies in Red states. You don't hear anything about EPAs concern over air quality in the Gulf. The EPA gained some of their power through a supreme court ruling which may have relied on fraudulent climategate data.
