Skip to comments.Senate to table Boehner 3.0 bill

That was going to happen anyway, so what is your point?
Fine. Go with the plan that has passed.
Notice they will table it. Not vote it down. If the Senate GOP hangs tough and blocks Reid’s bill they may just have to take it up again. I would have thought the Dems would just amend the heck out of it and send it to conference.
Why exactly are you blaming the GOP for that?
Yep tell the Senate they have 1.0 on the table “Vote on it”!
I highly recommend reading revelation 13
The WH is playing a huge game of chicken. They know they’ll have their maximum leverage on Aug 1 at around 1130PM. They think that when it comes down to it the GOP will fold, just as they largely did in April over the CR.
I don’t knwo what will happen but it won’t happen until the very end. I think there’s a good chance we go past Aug 2.
If they vote it down it returns to the House and can be resubmitted. By tabling it without action it remains alive but sealed in the Senate,forcing the GOP to develop, vote on and submit a different bill
And your point is??????? You want them to pass a blank check to 0bama and no budget reforms? ANYTHING short of that was going to get tabled by reid - you expected more?
Thanks! I’ll look at it later. Kind of busy reading http://www.globaltravelerinternational.com for a one way ticket to Costa Rica
Yay twitter! Twitter is news! Post more twitter!
On the other hand if all the senate pubs just vote present not no and it gets sent back to the house and the house pubs vote present not no here either, Guess what they have then. The demons definitely own the whole thing and no claims to bipartisanship.
A tweet is worth what ? Just a contest to see who can be first in the echo chamber.
And that is EXACTLY what will happen.
Hey! Great photo!
That girl is on my niece’s golf team!
(word is she’s a lesbian...ssshhh)
0 looks like one of those way to skinny “super” models.
Reid and Obama need to be exposed for what their goal has been all along.
My brother bought a place in Costa rica, and a decade later he bought 4 acres in Honduras. He expects to use the Honduras property when the SHTF.
I’m noticing that public awareness of what is happening, beginning with the housing collaps, has been growing exponentially. And this latest congressional bickering has made it pretty much a verticle graph the last couple of weeks.
The “end” could literally be any day. Or a year from now.
If you’re going to pass something that will be tabled anyway, pass something in the House that you can really live with- put the Ryan budget back up, CCB, etc. Make it look like you’re actively doing something to solve the problem, and put the onus on the Dems to react.
Then ask the phony “moderate” Dems what exactly it is that they are looking for here to get on board. Isolate them, and put them on the spot. Make it look like we will “default” all because of the intransigence of a handful of Senate Dems...
Naming more Post Offices as we type. Glad the priorities are straight.
My cynical side says Obama views it as a win-win. If the deadline passes with no resolution and everything starts cratering then he has accomplished his puppetmaster's orders, and if he pulls out a secret plan at the 11th hour and can cause the GOP to cave and pass it, then he regains the adulation of his fawning useful idiots and rides it to a reelection in 2012. Grant it, I hope this is all completely wrong.
That the GOP leadership is stupid. They did their job with CCB. What’s the point of sending over CCB lite when they know it’s going to be DOA? Other than to give Harry Reid a vehicle to make the bill even crappier and then shove the it back to the house.
Yeah, I noticed he doesn’t look mucho manly. His wife looks more like a guy than he ever has.
You can only bamboozle when you have a majority in the Senate. There are tricks to avoid the filibuster. But there are not tricks whereby the minority can out vote the majority. If you have a popular President on the side of the minority sometimes you can peel off part of the opposition.
The GOP in the House was unified under CCB. The past week we’ve seen big divisions over a watered down CCB that’s never going to make it through the Senate. The House passed CCB. It’s not their problem/fault if the Senate refuses to take it up. Boehner should get in front of a mike and say ‘we’ve done our job, and we’re recessing until the Senate does theirs.’
CCB is the compromise Bill Reid. You and your Senatorial clowns can pass it or default, the choice is yours.
That sounds pretty good except that the ACORN states could probably kill it and send right back to where we are now.
I am proud of the TEA PARTY Caucus.
Nair or razor?
Dead wrong. The House has now passed 2 bills, they are under no obligation to continue letting Harry Reid be Senate Majority Leader and Speaker of the House. They could tell Harry "You got your bills, we aren't sending you any others, vote for one them or default. The choice is yours".
My very liberal sister was in Italy last year and was so impressed that when she had to visit a doctor there that they didn’t even bill her. She said - what a wonderful system!
A couple of days ago she told me that her dermatologist is quitting private practice and she is alarmed - like she doesn’t understand why he would do that.
Lots of liberals have no clue about the cause and effect of their pie in the sky policies. There is no free healthcare.
This is the GOP’s last chance. I’m hoping against hope that boner is waiting until the last minute to send it to the senate. At that point there will be no time to change it and send it back. Hoping against hope.
If they blow this, there will be a third party and the GOP will be no more. Let the dems have it. Let them destroy the country. It’s going to happen sooner or later anyway. Let’s get it over with.
Then again, I’m getting old. I’m going to grab hold of the government teat and live out my days. And to think about it, I don’t know why we hate people on the government dole. Both parties live off the government. And live pretty well, too.
All these other bills have done is cause a civil war within the GOP (ok, I’m being a bit dramatic there). The House and Senate GOP, the tea party, grassroots and mainstream T]Republicans were all unified around CCB.
The White House and Harry Reid are running a huge bluff and our problem is the moronic leadership in the House GOP is falling for it.
he mask is slipping form the DC Political media machine. The truth is coming out. This is why Progressive Facists in the 0-bot media are in hysteria today
The big DC political machine lie of this whole thing is the GOP needs a bill.
NO, the 0 Democrats need a bill. They are the party of spend. They are the ones who have to go to the voters in 2012 and defend their total mishandling of the economy for the last 4 years.
The GOP candidate in 2012 is going to be running against DC. The 2012 election will be a referendum on 0s Presidency.
Time for people to quit buying the propaganda fed them by the DNC Media-Political machine, the 0 Dems, not the GOP, will be hurt the worst by a failure to strike a deal.
Here what you do GOP, you tell the Senate Sorry but all your Debt bills are D.O.A. CCB was the compromise, if you want a bill, there it is.
This had nothing to do with the GOP.
What about this do you not get?
The Senate won’t vote or even open debate on any measure sent to them.
None of the bills will stop the downgrade. NONE OF THEM.
This isn’t about the wording of the bills.
The House needed to stop after CCB. They did their job, let the Senate and President cause default.
“The end could literally be any day.”
Could THIS be where we’re headed?
Filibuster? Where’s DeMint? Talking to Greta?
Last GOP President and Congress 2006. Federal Budget Deficit $160 billion
Last Democrat Congress and President 2010, Federal Budget Deficit 1.7 Trillion
If you cannot see the clear difference between the two parties it because you are not even bothering to look.
Maybe boner is going to wait until the markets are closed then say “Take it or leave it.” The dems will have Saturday and part of Sunday to come up with something before the markets open Sunday afternoon.
Yes it does. It’s not about what the Senate will or won’t pass. It’s about the GOP establishment basically giving the conservatives and grassroots the middle finger this past week. I’ve never seen establishment republicans and movement conservatives so upset with each other. This is like the CR all over again. That wasn’t the case until Boehner threw up CCB lite.
Except McConnell's plan to allow the president to have debt limit authority; where a minority has power to avoid the congressional override.
The GOP should have another Bill ready to go but tougher than the last. Keep submitting Bills and show the people what the Democrats are all about.
Fine. House should vote and take the weekend off. These thieves in the Dem Senate get the House of Representatives to jump through rings of fire THREE FRIGGN TIMES to do what??? VOte to not VOTE??? They can take their pick of the 3 bills that have been submitted and VOTE. They cannot merely mark themselves present. Pass the Ryan budget, the CC&B or this latest one. Take your pick. TGhe work of the House has been done. The work of the Senate has not. And the will of the people has not. This sits with THEM. Freaking cowards. Meanwhile, 0boomba celebrates his birthday on the backs of the American people. This may end badly..but it must end. I am sick of getting slapped in the face by the utter disregard of this, the worst administration in the history of our nation.
First of all, the deficit should have been zero with a GOP president and congress.
Second, what was the deficit in 2008? W couldn’t find a veto pen?
NO. No more. The House could be doing this circle for the rest of this term. It stops NOW. THey have door number 1 - Ryan’s budget, door number 2 - CC&B and door number 3 - whatever moves tonite. Let them bring them up for a vote or face the wrath of the American people. Those Senate lines should be on fire this weekend.
What version of the BBA would be sent to the States? We’d need, what, 47 Democrats for it to pass the House. Fat chance of that happening.
