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!!!

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?

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.

--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.

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 seriously expect them to start ‘deeming as elected’ those officials that don’t win in November.

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.

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?

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.

"Never before -- since the creation of the Congressional budget process --"

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.

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 agree. "Where are the Republicans" indeed.

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.

“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.

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.
