GOP presser LIVE on FOX
FOX News | Aug 1, 2011 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 08/01/2011 1:11:13 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

The GOP "leadership" is united in lying to the public while they stab us in the back.

I must correct their lies. There is not a nickle in spending cuts in this bill.

It's absolutely idiotic to pile on more debt and continue spending when you're already so deeply in debt that you can never get out.

No deal would be better than this MARXIST POS!!

It's the spending, stupid!!

Tea Party Freshmen: HOLD THE LINE!!

Rebellion is brewing!!

Reinforcements coming in 2012!!

Call your congresscritters, burn down the switchboard with your calls! Every one of them must hear from those they represent and make it plain they will be replaced if they dont listen.

In 2012, I think we need a box on the ballot that just says NO. It’s all too clear that any other vote we might cast would just lead to more pointless frustration.

There are spending cuts - Mine, and every other taxpayer will have to cut their spending on frivolous things like food, rent and retirement.

I have been advocating “no deal” for around 2 weeks. It is much preferable than giving Obama a phony(but marketable) victory, and saddling us with more debt.

Government will not decrease without a serious push.

As I said before, any increase in the debt limit is spending money we don’t have.

Any congress critter who fails to keep faith with the Military, will NOT keep faith with YOU! The active duty Military is only 1% of the population.

I agree. Any raise in the debt ceiling, regardless of whether there are any cuts, is stupid and prolonging the agony, as well as making things way worse.

Damn these people. Apparently, they just might have to be forced to stop spending.

I can't wait for one of the several dozen branches of the GOP to call me or write me for a donation. I'll be making one all right - directly to the Tea Party and I'll send a copy of the receipt to the GOP - every time!

They want spending cuts - they'll get proof of ‘em! Grrrrrrrr!!

The Central Committee, that is the gang of 12, is under no constraints as to what legislation they can send that must have an up or down vote with no filibuster or amendments. The Progressives seem to have enough in both houses to pass anything they want and call it bipartisan, including things the GOP stopped through such measures in the first two years of Obamadom.

Way to go Jim! Here's my prescription:

1. Cut spending to the bone. Use the revenue we have incoming to pay the debt interest, pay the military, pay social security and medicare. Priotritze everything else after that and spend NO MORE than what comes in.

2. CAP sepnding NOW, at a modest rate of GNP that allows us to balance the budget in five years minimum.

3. Pass the Balanced Budget Amendment NOW and send it to the states.

4. Inact legislation (or an amendment if necessary) that requires anyone receiveing Federal or State Aid for their income to be ineligable to vote until they are off that aid.

If we did these four things, we would end our economic quandry, and we would break the back of the socialists in this country.

If it passes Repubs are gonna face a bigtime financial implosion of the Feral government budget in 2013.

Whata bunhca yahoos.

Why didn’t they just wait for the Dems - make them choose what to cut. Imagine how unpopular they all would be by 2012.

Now, if this passes, the Dems are going to try to hobble across the goal line of the election 2012 and minimize the damage to themselves.

Hopefully Tea Party can get enough nays.

Why aren’t more Congresscritters scared to heap on that debt ?

Downgrade is happening anyway - at least in bond buyers’ minds within a few months.

Spot on! And to think, some “tea partiers” may vote to cut their own throats.

Notice, Boner was not on RUSH today. He tried and failed to convince 20 million conservatives.

Instead, he’s going to try and convince the Dems to go along with him to defeat 20 million of us.

So who do we call?

The GOP members that are voting “FOR” it or the Tea Party members who are holding out against it?

Anyone got a list of telephone numbers they can post?

You are right smokey, the idea here is to attack it from both sides of the asile. Nothing like having a vermin 5th column as part of the revolution.

They must have the votes because they all look and sound too happy to suit me. Wait for the look of amazement when the bush tax cuts expire and the house and senate try to get a bill past the jerk in charge...never happen.

Folks we got to fight back the only way we can, they cannot put us all in jail. Put down as many phoney deductions as you can, have as little as you can withheld and if enough people do it whom are on the government hand in your pocket every pay day plan, the G will be sucking wind.

On this and many other issues. I've been underwhelmed by the republicans for years. Basically since Reagan's presidency ended, and he did some stuff I wasn't happy with too - like signed the full auto ban and grew federal spending while he was in office.

Right. This is a minor reduction in the rate of increase (maybe) and a cover for a tax increase plan. It has become the government vs. the people and no amount of writing, calling, or marching seems to stop them.

2/3 ‘s of a fix.

Imagine going for cancer surgery and being asked to be happy with a 2/3’s fix.

Imagine taking your lawn mower for service and getting it 2/3’s fixed.
