Why is Boehner even negotiating with zer0?
Aren't all financial bills supposed to originate in the House? Just write the bill, and publicize its contents.
Make the Admin and the Senate fail to pass/sign the bill. See where the publicity goes then.
Haven't been watching this game for long, have you?
Because Bonehead loves a deal. a Grandest of All Bargain.
No matter how bad it is, or how it will kill off the conservative movement.
So, the GOP is trying to get Obama to agree to entitlement cuts so the cuts can be presented to the country as a bipartisan agreement, so the GOP can dodge much of the blame. The problem is that Obama seems unwilling to consider any entitlement cuts even with the GOP offering the olive branch of higher taxes.
They’ve done that already. Several times. The Senate has tossed the proposed budget out. Several times.
The Senate hasn’t passed a budget in nearly four years.
Pass it, adjourn for the holidays, find out what's in it next year.
Because the MSM refuses to be honest. No matter what the Republicans do, they will be blamed for anything bad that happens. If anything good happens, President Obama will be given credit.
The problem is *not* the politicians. It is the MSM that works tirelessly to elect “progressives” of both parties and to defeat constitutionalists... there are no more Democrat constitutionalists.
