So if you wanted to hear Hannity NOW you’d find this:
Mine too. But I gleaned enough info to realize we aren’t being told jack.
If these leaders can’t have more than 5 uninterrupted minutes on TV to explain their positions until we know exactly what our problem is, what they are proposing, and how they differ with their colleagues, than they need to be making videos with charts and graphs in a manner most responsible voters will understand-—WITHOUT THIRD-PARTY INTERMEDIARIES interpreting what THEY think our leaders are saying.
Our public servants have lost the public trust.
That CBO scoring is an embarrassment.
Still waiting on the so-called "Reid" plan to be scored.
Gotcha; TY; airs different times in different locales. I don’t think I have listened to Hannity more than 5 times since the last election. Tend to listen to his program close to election times. He’s a little hard to take for me.
HA HA! 14th amendment section 4 compels the president to pay his bills!
No wonder 0bama didn’t try and use it to raise the debt ceiling by himself.
Mark watched the speech. lol
“It was like I was looking at a mental patient. Turrets.” lol
If you read the speech, you will see it was very carefully crafted and focus-group screened. It wasn’t written in an afternoon.
Dishonest through and through, and devious and manipulative.
Levin surge now under way
US Capitol switchboard: 202-224-3121
Mark Levin: I said he has a screw loose. It is impossible to lie that effortlessly.
MARK: Read FR more often. We have been screaming that with sourced footnotes since before the election.
Furthermore, the entire Democratic Party is pathological. It’s a criminal organization. And the Repubs are acting like it’s business as usual.
Who is this on the phone? Paul Ryan?
Sorry, had to leave. Just got back. Sounds like him, but Ryan supports the Boehner plan. Did you hear him do that?
Can’t be Ryan; just said he doesn’t support the Boehner Plan.
Jim Jordan, I love him.
He tore up my critter POS Chris Van Hollen.
Ah...Jim Jordan, Chairman of the Congressman’s Study Committee.
He was one of the first to say he won’t back Boehner’s Plan.
lol; I’ve heard you express your disgust for Van Hollen before.
Here is some late news....
An important message from Sen. Jim DeMint
I like the way Hewitt put it. It’s like cutting 6.00 out if a 3500.00 budget, BFD.
TY - pasting it here too

I have troubling news. Im very careful about criticizing my partys leaders, but what is happening in Washington right now cannot be ignored. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has abandoned the Cut-Cap-Balance Act and is now pushing a new plan that is nearly identical to the one proposed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).
The Boehner-Reid plan gives the President an immediate increase in the debt limit and only promises to cut spending in the future. It violates all three principles of the Cut-Cap-Balance Pledge because it does not substantially cut current spending, it does not truly cap future spending, and it does not require the passage of a strong Balanced Budget Amendment before raising the debt limit.
In short, I oppose the Boehner-Reid plan because it wont balance the budget and stop the debt that is destroying our country.
The Boehner-Reid Plan
You will hear many claims about this plan over the next few days as it is pushed through the House and Senate. Some of these claims will be true, but many will be false. Here are the facts. The Boehner-Reid plan:
* Provides two increases in the debt limit $900 billion and $1.6 trillion totaling $2.5 trillion. It gives the President an immediate $900 billion increase given that Congress does not vote to disapprove it. It gives the President another $1.6 trillion increase next year if a bill written by a new Super Committee passes both houses and becomes law.
* Reduces spending by only $1.2 trillion over the next ten years. This amount wont even come close to balancing the budget, as the debt is expected to grow by as much as $10 trillion over the next decade. The plan also reduces spending by only $6 billion in 2012. Considering that our government currently spends $10 billion a day, $6 billion is far too little to cut over the first year of the plan.
* Calls for a vote on the Balanced Budget Amendment but does not require its passage. Without passage of a strong Balanced Budget Amendment, Congress will never break its addiction to spending.
* Makes it virtually impossible to stop the debt limit from going up. The debt ceiling increases can only be stopped if Congress passes a resolution of disapproval and then votes to override the Presidents veto with two-thirds support in the House and Senate.
* Creates a new, 12-member Super Committee to write another grand bargain to reduce the deficit by at least $1.6 trillion. It does not, however, prohibit the Super Committee from writing a bill to raise taxes and destroy jobs. The bill can then be fast-tracked through the House and Senate with no amendments.
Why It Should Be Rejected
After reviewing the details of Boehner-Reid plan, I cannot support it. It wont balance the budget and stop the debt. Even if the cuts called for in the plan were real, the debt will still increase by $7 trillion over the next ten years.
* It wont protect our AAA bond rating. According to financial reports, this plan will not reduce long-term spending by enough to prevent a downgrade. If we lose our AAA rating, it will create higher interest rates and cause our debt to grow even faster.
* It will likely result in higher taxes that will destroy even more jobs. The unemployment rate is over 9 percent. We cannot afford to lose more jobs when so many Americans are struggling to find work.
There are some in my party who think I should ignore the flaws of the Boehner-Reid plan, bite my tongue, and support my partys leaders. If I thought this were a political game, that might make sense. But the future of our country is at stake, I dont believe this plan will save it, and I have a moral obligation to say so.
The Way Forward
Fortunately, there is a much better solution.
The Cut-Cap-Balance Act would balance the budget, stop the debt, and protect our AAA bond rating. This legislation passed the House with bipartisan support but was blocked by Democrats in the Senate.
The votes in the Senate for Cut-Cap-Balance are there if Republicans stand firm. 23 Democrats in the Senate have expressed support for the Balanced Budget Amendment at some point in their careers. Theyre blocking it now because they believe Republicans will blink and agree to something much less.
And thats exactly what will happen if the Boehner-Reid plan is passed. It gives the big spenders in Washington everything they wanted an increase in the debt limit, phony spending cuts, and a mechanism to pass tax increases.
Please call your senators today and urge them to oppose the Boehner-Reid plan and to demand passage of the Cut, Cap, Balance Act.
As my father would say.........
“The P is silent............like in swimming” ;-)
Pelosi’s face is pulled tighter than a gnats ass over a rain barrel
It is a toss up if her dentures are loose, she is drunk,dumb as a brick, or D, all of the above
1)Boehner’s plan was written for the Tea Party
2)It is NOT a compromise
3)It will not pass the Senate
Interpretation? Exact opposite?
1) Boehner’s Plan was NOT written for the Tea Party.
2) It IS a compromise
3) It WILL pass the Senate?
And Flame Thrower Pelosi:
“This isn’t just about them saying we should reduce the deficit,” Pelosi said, adding: “This is an excuse. The budget deficit is an excuse for the Republicans to undermine government plain and simple. They don’t just want to make cuts, they want to destroy. They want to destroy food safety, clean air, clean water, the department of education. They want to destroy your rights.”
I am LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE the Mumblers!!
Caller reads Liberty & Tyranny to Levin, pg 15
Paragraph on the statist ends with “And so he must destroy...piece by piece.”
Mark Levin says he was thinking about Chuck Schumer when he wrote that paragraph.
Either this thread has died, or I need to leave so people can start posting again....
Have a good evening, all.
lol; Just the usual drop-off in last hour. Good evening.
Blank blank blank - love - is a sweet love
blank blank blank - love - is complete love.
No I'll never, no, I'll never love again.
What was the song and who was the artist? Any idea? Anyone?
I get it - we all feel like that. (Pepsi? Been there done that - had the icy fingers of guilty wrapped around my aorta. But then I knew. That that one loved me so much, he'd never want me to be without the pleasure and love of this one. So, yeah you will, Mark. Juan Williams can't come close to having your taste in music. Hit him with “One Mint Julip” by our man Ray, my brother.
I'm showering to:
Clowns to the left of me
Jokers to the right
Here I am - stuck in the middle with you....

Rep. James Clyburn and a group of House Democrats are urging President Barack Obama to invoke the 14th Amendment to raise the debt ceiling if Congress cant come up with a satisfactory plan before the Tuesday deadline.
