Not enough Tea Partyers in the Congress to get everything they want. Need another election cycle at least.
If Ryan and West say that is the best we can do then so be it.
>>They cant kill us all. Can they?????
They can try...and there can be a rifle behind every blade of grass!
The Socialist Republicans and Communist Democrats use the same game plan. The only difference is the rate of advance.
Do not give up! We must fight every inch of the way! Overload the switchboards, They must hear from you. Melt the email server! Dont stop until they hear the American People. If they then ignore us then they will know what comes next for them.
Let's hope so.
Right, they cut you open, they remove the cancer and then they stop, congratulate themselves and go home, with you, your guts opened up, lying on the table dying. That's what they just did to us.
Thank God, I've got a good Rep.
Go Tea Party Patriots!!!!
B/S. The congress cannot raise the spending or the credit limit unless the tea party freshmen go along with it. There are just enough fiscal conservatives in the House to make any such bill fail. IF they stick together and IF they HOLD THE LINE!!

My question, what THE Devil is all this doing in the budget in the first place?
Is there anything listed you cannot do without?
No increase in the limit at all is better than this. At least that will force cuts.
Crazy times we're living in. Scary crazy.
Actually, to me they seem to be marching in lockstep with no discernable speed difference between them.
McConnell with Cavuto on FNC mentioned TEA asked for too much and should be happy with the limits of his accomplishments.
What about cutting some of the “pork” in congress and the white house......do they need all the planes and perks and parties?
West is a sell out.
Until then; it is ALL 'BS'.
I'm not quite sure what to think right now.
We need to see more lists like this, and we need to know WHY these items aren’t being cut TODAY. Read the list to your local Congressman at your next ‘town hall’...
For any of you have no signal from Comcast Cable as we have, here is where you can watch our country go down the drain.
