Coming out of a deal, this is a losing statement. We'll know who lost by who uttered those words.
The American people.
Beat me to it.
The American people are just angrier than ever. Reid is the real loser. He is heading the Fail party. I hope they keep him in charge. What a disgrace.
And as far as 2012 is concerned...The Ryan plan isn't good enough. Must do better.
“This is the best deal we could get out of them!?!?!” - The American People, sighing with amazement.
Gee...a prophecy posted hours after it was said...
Trump writes letter..
Another silver lining here is that all the hyperventilating about the Republican budget by the Democrats - lies really - and all their claims about Republicans wanting to shut down the govt ... POOF ... gone up in smoke.
Without the shutdown, the poor media wont have sob stories to tell to make this the story of the month... so people will realize ‘oh, it was all a bunch of politics’
The Democrats come out of this looking like smallminded, petty, partisan squabblers who cannot bring themselves to act or spend responsibly (*) ... of course, the media might cover that up, but I certainly was getting very ticked off about the Democrat lies.
(*) Just like the fleebaggers in Wisconsin. The Democrats are trying to ramp up the partisanship and emotion and they are justin coming off looking like liars and fools.
Tomorrow is another day.
>> “Tomorrow is another day.” <<
With a higher debt ceiling and the dollar in a power dive, and gold knocking on $1500
From pro-life conservative, Jordon Sekulow, on Twitter:
“DC abortion ban, 38.5 billion cuts, and guaranteed votes in Senate on defunding Planned Parenthood and ObamaCare are all #budget victories”
“Two wins for life in new budget details - 1) DC abortion ban 2) standalone vote in Senate on defunding Planned Parenthood”
Your vanity post is akin to yelling fire in a movie theater. (Smile).
The point is, for a House Speaker to gain ground against an opposition Senate and President, is a remarkable feat. The vaunted Tip ONeill couldn't do it. Boehner did. Give him his due credit.
Hah, they “cut” 39 billion out of a proposed increase of ?
So what’s the net increase were left with?
This is all so much BS and we all so much suckers.
I just sent an email to my rep. Kansas elected folks are going to quickly become known as folks who don’t fight and are just reliable votes for whatever hairless compromises the Democrats tell them they can have. Trust me, Jerry Moran and Mike Pompeo do not represent the folks who voted for them who have hair on their loins. I told Pompeo to do something so that his website has more to champion than leading the pledge of allegiance in the House and doing a resolution about local college basketball success.
Why is it that too many Freepers always see the glass as half empty. Give me the Reagan optimism anytime. (I might add, Reagan had to compromise too). You will never get everything you want. You get the best deal you can negotiate, hopefully better than the party you are negotiating with. Boehner did this admirably. Geez, some Freepers are as big a downer as Glenn Becks shows lately.
I call this little skirmish a draw. The real battle starts tomorrow on the ‘12 budget and debt ceiling. We need total unification against the libs to save our Country.
Yes, Boehner is the winner in this deal. No one would have won with a shut down.
We need to get the Senate and WH, and then we can play Atlas better.
We are so screwed.
It is just a matter of time now.
The best I can say about this is that I am not “totally” disatisfied with it...it wasn’t even supposed to be a budget the GOP had any say over as it should have been passed last year...likely with significant spending increases, so the fact that $40 billion got chopped from a budget that should have been all Democrat is just a bonus.
Our political capital would be better used on our own budget - the coming fiscal year. That’s where the real battle should be and will be, and the longer spent on the remainder of this current year’s budget the less capital there will be on this, including efforts to highlight more of the outrages in the Obamacare bill, for which they should start having an ‘outrage of the month’ - focusing on one piece of the legislation at a time through hearings, public forums, etc. to keep it in the news and keep it fresh from month to month by focusing on different aspects of the bill. The public gets fatigued fairly quickly with the same debate, and jumping from thing to thing causes the message to be unfocused.
Absolutely. The next fight - starting almost immediately - is for next year's budget.
When are they going to take a serious look at military? Gates and others say there are costly programs that need to be trimmed and streamlined. Also when are we going to look at big agriculture? How much money are the agrigiants like Cargill and Monsanto getting from our pockets?
ON the subject of social security, why are only the bottom 90% of salaries being charged a percentage. Perhaps some will feel it is unfair to charge against income above $106 (or some similar figures). But I’ll bet a lot of people who used to earn more than that, and now have lost jobs or been forced to take much lower paying ones, wish that money had been put away for them when they were earning their big salaries.
Of course America lost, but between only Obama and Boehner, Obama lost.
Unfortunately, dem-media will make it look like Obama won...big.
Pssssssst. It wasn't ever "put away". It was spent.
Nobody misses it -- besides the spenders. I guarantee.
. And Boehner's performance in this fight suggests that he'll represent us well in the next fight.
I want a GOP congress that doesn’t cave when the people are behind them.
Amen to that- I totally agree.
Obama won big time!
And our military.
Isn’t it amazing how many people here ignore that without the senate voting for it and without Obama signing it, the Repubs can’t pass anything!
A win would be 1.6 trillion.
With a flat even percentile cut from every line item of the years fiscal budget in order to meet this.
These jerks blinked first! They are just as bad as what was there before them. Vote them out atbthe first chance!
I still have hopes that my guy, way out west here in the western 75% of Kansas is a conservative. He was severely ridiculed by liberals, so he could be good.
Obama lost — big.
We didn’t do as well as we could, but the other side lost ground. So, what do you call that? It’s a skirmish where both sides withdraw to fight again.
You are dreaming ...he is laughing all the way home ...
Self delusion ....
YA really think the majority Dem Senate will defund??We will see....
In your dreams
