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!!
We’re doing what we can in SC.
They were little cheerleaders werent they?
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.
No more air-conditioning in the Senate until they cut spending!!
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.
Your endless hope is hopeful. We have been around this bend before.
” No deal would be better than this MARXIST POS!!
It’s the spending, stupid!! “
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 gov’t that does NOT live under the same laws they foist, (and in case you don’t know what the word means, enacts is another term) on you, just became your MASTER, and you their SERF.
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.
it sounds good, but they all seem hesitant; they know it’s a lie.
If this isn't stopped now by then it might be too late...
"And having done all - STAND!"
I agree with you 100%
In addition, they intend to kill the Tea Party with this bill.
Throw All The Bums Out.
“...they intend to kill the Tea Party with this bill.”
They can’t kill us all. Can they?????
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 hear ya, Captain Jim!
They want spending cuts - they'll get proof of ‘em! Grrrrrrrr!!
NO COMPROMISE! NO RETREAT! AND ABOVE ALL, NO SURRENDER!
I really haven’t heard of a single program that’s being cut. Seems you’d have to hear of something actually being cut.
No deal would be the best deal.
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.
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.
“In addition, they intend to kill the Tea Party with this bill.”
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.
The tea party freshmen are our last slender hope. It’s a tiny beachhead and their traitorous “leaders” are twisting their arms to surrender! The proper patriotic response is NUTS!
Hold the line!!
Reinforcements are coming!!
Michele Bachmann just told them true. NO SURRENDER!! VOTE NO!!
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?
Just called Peter King’s office. Phone answerer said he believes we must compromise so will vote for it. Said I will
be voting and supporting a primary challenger for him as a compromise.
Good idea. I'll do the same. And I'm going to let every Republican who votes for this monstrosity that they will no longer receive any donations from me.
HOLD THAT LINE! HOLD THAT LINE! HOLD THAT LINE!
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.
GOP elite facilitating the death of the Greatest Nation!
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.
This is one we can title (as expected).
Grov(el)er Norquist (and his crew of sycophants at Americans for Tax Reform) has permanently sold us out, so Norquist gets a place at the big table.
Michelle Bachmann holding firm.
Sounds like communist central planning to me. And UNCONSTITUTIONAL as HELL!!
Tea party patriots: HOLD THE LINE!!
DO NOT CEDE YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL POWER TO THE BIG SPENDING, BIG TAXING MARXISTS!!
We the tea party have a tiny toehold in the congress. DON’T SURRENDER IT!!
FIGHT LIKE HELL!! VOTE NO!!
This is a sad day for America.
Bad representation is worse than no representation. NO DEAL!
2/3 ‘s of a fix.
That’s just a load of crap.
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.
Let’s go Tea Party. Throw these bums out next election.
