Budget Negotiators Reach Tentative Deal To Avert Government Shutdown (RINOS Cave, No $100M Cuts)
ABC NEWS ^ | 3/30/2011

Posted on 03/30/2011 4:21:47 PM PDT by GreaterSwiss

ources tell me that budget negotiators on Capitol Hill have tentatively agreed on a deal that would involve at least $33 billion in spending cuts from this year’s budget. That’s $23 billion dollars more than Democrats have previously agreed to in short-term continuingresolutions, and $28 billion less than Republicans previously passed in the House.

Members of the House Appropriations Committee will begin discussing how to hit that number with their Senate counterparts as soon as tonight, and Vice President Biden is heading to Capitol Hill for a 6pm meeting with the Senate Democratic leadership.

Anyone who thinks the GOP is their friend, representing their interests in DC...needs to go to rehab. More delusional than Charlie Sheen.

Why vote these guys into office if this is the crap you get?

Never again, not for me.

I won't fail to vote, contribute or advocate. I will just NEVER do that for a GOP candidate. I don't care who they are or what they promise.

And YES, I'm perfectly OK if that means 400 dims in the House, 85 in the Senate and POTUS.

Never again.

If they can’t cut more than 1/5000 of our national debt, they are useless.

And it will be time to get a party that can make a difference.

Sooner or later these Republicans are going to realize that Tea Party members are going to replace them and not just the Democrats. I am tired of their lack of action. Watch your steps RINOS!

Doesn’t really matter as the 100 million was a joke as well. When the deficit is 1.4 TRILLION FRICKIN’ DILLARS what does a 100 million cut really do? Answere, not a whole hell of a lot.

I’ve felt like that in the past few years too but I’m afraid all that will do will guarantee a repeat of the Ross Perot / Bush / Clinton thing.

Quote “Still more RINOs to be voted out.”

Really? I don’t think it matters who is elected. They are all the same. Nothing changes.

People TALK about change but that is it. ALL TALK

Nothing is going to change - the nation is doomed and we are going down the drain.

Time to prioritize. Which are the worse ones?

Which are the most vulnerable?

Put their faces on a deck of playing cards.

Time to go after the RINOS.

I disagree. The GOP owns ONLY the House of Reps. The Dems own the 2 power positions, the Senate and the Presidency. The Senate is more powerful than the House because of its filibuster/super-majority rules, and the President is more powerful because of the 2/3 requirement for an over-ride of a veto.

To get 33 Billion is peanuts in comparison to the debt, and it is a failure for the nation, but for the GOP it is better than getting nothing when they own just one of three prongs of the legislative process.

As always, the issue is getting a controlling majority in the Senate, which is 61 CONSERVATIVES, not just Republicans, and the Presidency.

That is what is so tragic about John McCain as the last nominee and the refusal of the Rove/Bush White House to defend itself.

They handed over the Senate and the Presidency.

Almost as if someone didn't want conservative change, so it was sabotaged.

I agree - but we have to accept that the economy and country have to crash. The productive need to shrug - just like in the novel.

Only 33 billion in cuts vs total debt of 14 trillion. Can you say chump change? This is analagous to 2 guys fighting over the bar bill on the Titantic.

The budget is spending $1.5 TRILLION more than the government is taking in and all they can agree upon is to cut less than 1% from the budget.

The government deficit spends at the rate of approximately 4 billion a day. Their paltry 33 billion dollar cut takes care of the first 9 days approximately.What do these clowns propse to do for the next 356 days.

Someone made an analogy that the budget cuts were like cutting out a third of a single French fry in a large size Big Mac meal.

This is all we get from an historic electoral repudiation of Obama and the democrats?

What a raw deal. Throw them all out!
