Lawmakers split into Democratic and Republicans camps to hear appeals from their party leaders to approve the deal which emerged from feverish negotiations as the clock ticked toward a Tuesday deadline to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling. Party leaders are hoping for sizable majorities in order to give the deal credibility.
Just called Marsha Blackburn’s office, and they said she is still reading it and is undecided. Told her I hate it.... politely, but firmly.
10% real cuts? Don’t forget the baseline...
What are they chanting from the gallery? ANyone know?
My gut says they won’t vote today.

screw the baseline...no more accounting tricks...take how much we spent last year and multiply it by .9 and there is your budget...takes about 15 seconds to do....really
You did account for killing the baseline then... good.

All of these lying politicians need to be swinging from lamp posts...
Call your Congress Critter NOW!

17 nate subsections (c) and (d) as subsections (b) and
18 (c), respectively.
I'm just impressed that someone is actually reading it before deciding on a vote.
