And every republican in congress should be SCREAMING this fact to the American public. FOX will be the only network to report it accurately, if at all and the republican party should have a representative on the network 24/7 for the next week at least. But don’t BANK on this happening. Mitchie the Kid McConnell will be too busy hiding under his desk as usual. And any republican who DOES step up will undoubtedly be attacked by OTHER REPUBLICANS for being non-bipartisan!!!
They can deem that they voted. The beauty of it is they can deem they voted yes or no depending on who they are talking to.
Seems like the rest of the party has been taken over by Obama Marxist progressives.
No rat crossed any aisle here. Actually, its 38 coward 'rats that are concerned about November, likely just as guilty as any other, but no cajones to vote with the rest of the rats (or given the pelosi pass to vote NO).
I “ deem “ it necessary that the Sgt. at Arms arrest every Democrat in the House & Senate.
“Associating with undesirables”
Words fail me and any that I might wish to type would cause a visit from various authorities.
Agree with your excellent post 100%.
Ah, no Laz...On the last Friday of October, they will "deem" the election to have been held and no one other than a democrat will have been elected. Obama will give an address to the nation praising the congress for having contributed to the "financial recovery" by making unnecessary the pesky costs of opening polls, counting votes, etc. etc.
Why not? They are accountable to no one but themselves and their minions.
Why can’t the Republicans stop this?
“Deeming” things passed? *rolls eyes*
Well what do you expect in Obamaland?
Will somebody PLEASE tell me how in the HELL they can do this and get away with it?????????
try = trying
Deliberate, systematic sabotage of our Nations fiscal infrastructure by the Leftist enemy within.
As always, my avowed “Blue Dog” representative voted to be a rubber stamp for Madame Nazi Pelousy.
God willing, his corrupt and worthless ass will be thrown out in November, and he can go back to chasing ambulances.
Your post echoes my exact feelings.
WHERE ARE THE REPUBLICANS?
It is past time to just sit there and vote no. It is time for them to lay their lives and careers on the line to save our Republic, but they just shrug, vote no, and act like nothing happened. They are allowing the President to make a mockery of the Supreme Court, they are allowing the Congress and Senate to strip us of our freedoms and burden us with unburdenable debt, and allow the Dems and teh White to lie, smear and destroy everything we hold sacred.
Again, WHERE ARE THE REPUBLICANS?
We need more than Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin to scream about these things on their shows. We need ACTION, and we need it NOW.
Every single sitting Republican, and every person in a position of power in the Republican Party leadership needs to be fired in November. Every single one of them. It’s not just the Dems anymore, the Republican party is now firmly part of the problem, and it must change.
The fact that, after all of the drama over deeming during the healthcare debacle, that they will sit there silent as they pull this unConstitutional act, is unforgivable and flatly, completely unnacceptable. The Republics as a whole should be taking over the floor of Congress over this, and rallying marches in the street.
WHERE ARE THE REPUBLICANS???
This is why, even after all of the outrage of Democrats since the Liar took office, I will not support the Republican Party. They are useless, craven cowards, who need to be in no uncertain terms fired in November, and never reelected to any office, even dogcatcher.
It may be too late, but I am sick and tired of the silence from those who claim to represent us.
WHERE ARE THE REPUBLICANS?
And if We The People “deemed” the recent Supreme Court decision allows the open carry of arms anywhere in the US... ??
I like that idea......
So, the Budget was ‘Present’ and they voted that indeed the Budget was ‘Present’?
They just acknowledged that the pieces of paper with writing on them existed? And the motion passed that it existed?
UGH. I am telling you, Congress is going to get its clock cleaned out in November, and the current congress - while a Lame Duck - is going to spend into OBLIVION because they already KNOW they are toast! The upcoming Lame duck session of congress is going to be hugely dangerous for this nation.
Hey! I “deem” that too!
GOODY! Congress breaks the law! I get to as well! WOO HOO!
And this has also been headline news every half hour, by our "esteemed" newsmedia. [no sarc tag necessary]
Every bill that passes with a 50.1-49.9 vote, given such a lopsided majority of Dems in this Congress, has to be recognized as another theft of American liberties. A blatant admission that the passed bill is nasty and oppressive.
Cover to vote “no” is given to every “unnecessary” vote.
The current budget process was enacted in 1975 or 1976. She's right with respect to the House, since its enactment the House has always passed a their own Budget. Now, there have been a number of times when the House & Senate failed to get a Budget out of Conference Committee, and then had to rely on the House passing a budget resolution, just like last night.
The "deem & pass" aspect is odd as well. I think - but am not positive - that those previous budget resolution were passed on a simple floor vote.
McConnell looks like a turtle.
The other side has effectively told us F#$% you and your rights ... POWER GRAB.
This is an act of treason.
The fastest way to get the ball back is to let the other team score.
The fact that the Repubs aren’t raising holy hell about this right now just demonstrates that they are a complicit “loyal opposition” party. The GOP won’t save our country now.
“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.”
This reads like an enumerated grievance from the Declaration.
Well stated. I said the exact same thing about Obamacare, and for the most part I got nothing more than the sound of crickets chirping.
The Republics as a whole should be taking over the floor of Congress over this, and rallying marches in the street.
Exactly. The fact that they aren't should tell you everything you need to know about them. Well not you, you seem to get it quite well. I'm talking about the other Freepers who think that the GOP is still going to save them.
The 'other' team has just declared, "We WON". You won't be getting the ball back.
I'm sure the 38 were given the green light to vote against it since the 'Rats knew they had the votes to pass without them. There are no "moderates" left in the DemocRat Party, just full-blown Leftists. Truly disgusting.
I’m attaching a sheet of paper to my federal tax return that deems my taxes to have been paid.
It is FAR beyond the point where merely casting their impotent protest votes matter at all.
With this action, the Democrats have brazenly trampled over the rule of law and are now merely and literally robbing us at gunpoint and spending our money on anything they damn well want to blow it on. There is no longer even the pretense of accountability or civilian representative approval.
This action is a hostile act from a treasonous domestic enemy.
If the national Republicans have any spine, they need to walk out of Congress, issue a unified proclamation declaring the Democrats and the Administration to be criminal enemies of the Constitution, nullify the illegitimate government in Washington, and hold special elections to reestablish a new, legitimate, Constitutional government.
Yes, it really has come to that, because we've just been plunged into abject tyranny.
Are there any fire-in-the-belly, freedom-loving, patriot republicans left in Washington? No, I didn’t think so. Their silence is deafening.
“Exactly. The fact that they aren’t should tell you everything you need to know about them. Well not you, you seem to get it quite well. I’m talking about the other Freepers who think that the GOP is still going to save them.”
Oh, I get it. I’m watching the GOP throw up their hands and act like Kagan is a fait accompli for the Supreme Court, nothing they can do, hey, don’t look at us.
On top of that...where are the Tea Parties? They were everywhere in April...now, it’s a deafening silence. There should be protests everywhere on the 4th. They should be screaming from the rooftops.
We might hold a revolution...but will anyone show up?
I agree. I believe all elected officials, local, state, federal, care only for themselves. Are there no loyal Americans left to run for office?
“Yes, it really has come to that, because we’ve just been plunged into abject tyranny.”
No you haven’t. Not yet.
If we do what you suggest, what would the outcome be?
I’m as fed up as everyone else, but going the rest of the way and shredding what’s left of the Constitution is not the answer.
Do I think that in another time, there would be politicians taking bullets at this point? Absolutely. I’m convinced elected officials at every level feel as if they are insulated from their actions by promises of employment once they are out of office, as lobbyists, judges, or other types of appointed office.
The R’s do it too. Chris Cox is the head of the NRA. Is it not about time the guy gets an honest job? I feel that way about politicians on both sides of the aisle - go get a job in a grocery store, or as an engineer, or start a business NOT having to do with DC.
I agree we are reaching the point where the vote is rigged, and I suspect the government understands that too. There’s no other reason for coming up with a way to bail out the main stream media than that - people won’t pay to watch propaganda, even with their free time.
If they suspend the election in November for any reason at all, then its likely time to talk about armed revolt.
Only the shell of our republic remains. We are ruled by an oligarchy of Hussein, Reid, Pelosi and their staffs. The rat conressmen exist to rubberstamp the diktats of the oligarchy while the pubbies may as well not exist at all.
The only problem with your stance is that you expect the Republicans to follow the rules (the Constitution), when the other side has expressly shown nothing but contempt for the rules. It’s a recipe to lose.
Now is the time for the Republicans to do everything in their power to educate the public on what’s happening, do everything in their power to stop it, starting with removing Pelosi from her Chair, and then impeaching her (this is MORE than enough grounds to do just that), and start impeachment proceedings one Obama and anyone else involved. To do less is to betray those who they claim to represent.
It’s going to take more than just November. Relying on the elections is not enough. If the same Republicans remain in power, of the party and the newly elected...it’s all been wasted effort. All of it. The only reason the elections would be suspended is because the Republicans allowed it!
The Republicans walking out now would be a start. And welcome, in the face of the endless silence from them. They NEED us to re-elect them, yet they do nothing to EARN that.
We are angry. Why are they not angry? Why are they hiding? Why should we vote for them in November, and expect them to fix a single thing, when none of them, with the possible exception of Issa, will put their necks out and risk anything?
Now is the time for action, not waiting. November may be too late. If anything, they should have started talking impeachment during the healthcare fiasco. Even if they can’t win, they need to bring this stuff up, keep it in the headlines, and pound the Democrats daily about this stuff, instead of relying on talk show hosts to do their heavy lifting for them.
I can’t even recall an interview, sound bite, or interview where a Republican was a tenth as upset about any of this as Mark Levin gets. That’s scary to me. Where’s the anger from the Republican party? When’s the last time you saw the head of the party?
Half of my anger is at the Dems, the other half is firmly on the spineless, weak, cowardly Republicans who refuse to work FOR us.
Like I said, they ALL need to be fired, if they won’t act. Wait until November? No. Too much can happen between then and now.
Upon my return today, they certainly have not not disappointed. Right out of the gate, they appear morbidly insane and completely out of control. Just another day like all the others. HO HUM.
