Skip to comments.Budget Negotiators Reach Tentative Deal To Avert Government Shutdown (RINOS Cave, No $100M Cuts)
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 years budget. Thats $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.

and our future
Down the drain.
Republicans have CHANGED NOTHING
There is no hope left.
Gutless wonders! They’re signing America’s death warrant.
We will see this is just a discussion!
Cantor, Boehner, Ryan, MCCarthy are SOCIALISTS.(if not by ideology then certainly by scoreboard...)
They just can’t get past that snatching failure out of the hands of victory can they.
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.
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.
This is just like being trapped on a bus while the driver is blind drunk and careening down the highway. It’s bound to end badly.
You knew with the crying wuss in charge the GOP would back down.
Primary Boehner and make Michele Bachmann speaker.
Boehner has just turned out to be a female version of Nancy Pelosi.
"Tito, give me some tissue..."
At least that witch was effective.........
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!
Let’s see the speaker cry about this one.
My government is supposed to represent me. I am their boss. Pass laws that apply to all and not exclude them (h
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.
Stinking bastards, as long as *Boner* is Speaker expect nothing conservative or fiscally responsible. He would much rather work with the Rats than Tea Party conservatives.
“We will see this is just a discussion!”
-and the source for the report is a Dem.
Still. I wouldn’t be surprised if they take ‘strike 2’.
They sre skittish as all-get-out of taking the blame.
Next time is it. A homer or else.
If they cant 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.
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.
Still more RINOs to be voted out.
Yep. The GOP is committing suicide even as we speak.
Sources tell me.... blah blah blah blah...
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.
Boehner has just turned out to be a female version of Nancy Pelosi.” Only pelosi has BALLS!
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.
We are screwed.
That old “B” should open up a school for our whimps in office to learn something......
Done with them all! No difference RINO’s/ Dims All BS posturing and getting time in the camera. Disgusting.
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.
They were afraid Shumer was going to call them extremists.
Pray for America
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.
‘12 is going to be a Dims and RINO bloodbath.. I doubt they even have a clue.
Which critters deserve the blame for this????????????? Names, please.
If they don’t attempt to cut the budget they will really get the blame!
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.
This is all we get from an historic electoral repudiation of Obama and the democrats?
What a raw deal. Throw them all out!
Your off by three zeros. Even 100 bill is not even a starting point V. 1.4 trill
I’ll go first.....and call BS.
There has been no evidence to support this.
Hey here is an idea. Let’s be civil!
Kick that can down the road a little further...............
SHUT THE DAMN THING DOWN!
Time for the Tea Party to form. Screw the Whiglicans they are a waste of time.
So much for Republican “extremism”
