Skip to comments.House Dems grouse about recess vote (Hussein's sequestration plan about to go into affect)
Posted on 02/17/2013 5:43:29 AM PST by Libloather
Democrats hammered Republicans for voting to go into recess Friday and accused them of willfully avoiding coming up with a plan to avert the sequester.
The Democrats tried to stop the Republicans from leaving, but 220 Republicans voted to adjourn, that means we have four legislative days left to avoid the across the board cuts, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters. They manufacture a crisis and then instead of trying to avert that crisis they go on a nine day recess. Why?"
The Republicans are poised to shut down government, the Republicans are poised to let sequestration go forward, which translates to
unemployment. No jobs, it takes us into a recession, Pelosi said. Thats not an exact Latin translation but thats what it means.

Good thing the idiot isn’t in charge of anything.
BALLS seems to be in short supply when it comes to the GOP they’re still running with thier tail between thier legs
Employment wrought by overspending is actually welfare outside the law.
If jobs are lost that is the penalty for misappropriation
If Washington is burned during the riots....... so be it. I hope they get Hillary’s house
It was his idea, and HE signed it into law.
Credit where credit is due!
Kudos to the repubs for standing up to the snakes.
The democrat senate - almost FOUR years without a budget
Obama - the budgets he has submitted not even one person in his own party voted in favor.
All they can do is hammer republicans.
It’s going to hurt me financially (third year of no COLA adjustments and 5% decrease in pay with anticipated furloughs), but I believe it needs to be done in order to open a new route or two towards waking the People up. I just hope that there are enough military leaders that haven’t moved so far to the left that let it all fall apart “to teach them a lesson” instead of finding ways to make things happen. There is a lot of waste in the military, but I believe that we can adapt for now if cooler heads prevail. I just hate that so many deployed troops will be further put upon with extensions of the deployments - it causes a lot of human pain for them and their families.
Look who's talking!
We have to correct the Narrative: this is THE OBAMA SEQUESTER
Exactly right. But the Dems just lie and the MSM repeats the lie.
Ditto what you said. But I do remember Great Leader promising there would be no sequestration during one of the debates. So, I’m not sure how it could possibly happen.
We just....can't let it .......GO TO WASTE!
We are looking at it all wrong. The sequester hurts only one group of people. The middle class. The money that will not be spent because of cuts which will put middle class people out of work will be given to the poor and also to political donors for both Obama and the establishment.
In other words, the rich will get richer, the poor will get poorer and the middle class will pay for it.
When are we going to wake up?
Why do you think this will happen? You think 1.2 T will be reinstated?
I prefer to call them degenerate Marxist arch criminal liars and their propaganda wing.
The marxists made a deal to raise the debt ceiling in exchange for reductions in the increase to the baseline, now pretend it never happened and are getting their flying monkeys in the communist press to whip up hysteria among the general populace.
Not going to work this time.
“Why do you think this will happen? You think 1.2 T will be reinstated?”
Nope, I think 1.2 Trillion is going to vanish in the mess they created and the middle class is going to pay for it.
They created it.
That would be 1.2 T that we otherwise would spend that won't be spent because of sequestration.
“That would be 1.2 T that we otherwise would spend that won’t be spent because of sequestration.”
Do really think that money won’t be spent? Obama is probably thinking, “hey, 1.2 trillion I can spend.” Who is going to say anything?
Obama can't just spend whatever he wants. He can't EO that money.
As it stands that money is coming out of the budget. Better than going the other way.
“Obama can’t just spend whatever he wants. He can’t EO that money.”
Really? What is going to happen when the debt ceiling is raised again. Bye bye money.
Maybe the same thing that happened last time...cuts equal to the raise.
