However, if this is true: Between this and the Hagel vote, it is clear that Republicans hold all the same views as Democrats, except for the 'winning lots of elections' thing.
Doesn’t that bring us full-circle back to the Line Item Veto (which was already declared to be unconstitutional by SCOTUS?)
Day in and day out, the vein in my forehead bulges further and further.
McConnell has been hiding in the weeds and getting ready to drop something. No leadership or credible opposition from him at all. What a dirtbag he is.
I think it’s safe to say no one heeded your headline warning, which was my first impulse - to check the source. Time will tell....but many leap before looking around here...
Haven’t they essentially already done that?
They haven’t successfully defeated or even stood up to Obama on anything.
Also remember that while we fully expect the no-ball bastard RINO Republicans in the Senate to puss out, the ‘deal’ still has to go through the House.
It galls me that the Senate takes the lead on fiscal things like this when the Constitution delegates that authority to the House of Representatives. Technically, the Senate cannot originate a spending bill.
The Republican Party already has. They just don’t admit it.
I call bull shit on this article. If we should believe this then why has Congress been holding back the “One” from spending the last several months? Remember the “One” wants to make “Pubbies” a thing of the past and this article is a damn good start!
With this one, not so much.
This move is transparent, and too clever by half. They think they can make Obama govern. That will not be happening. They have the right idea, in that they FINALLY are trying to make him own it, but this stunt won’t do any good at all.
Hey, how much could the DEms possibly spend in 7 months?
Let ‘em have the reins, we’ll keep the ammo.
If this turns out to be true, why not just stop paying the Senate for not doing their job? Just dissolve the whole thing with their staff, sell off the building, vehicles, aircraft, etc and I’m sure we could save all kinds of cash.
If we are going to have open borders, let’s dismantle Homeland Security and Border Patrol.
If we’re going to crash, let’s crash HARD, killing everyone on board!
GOP leadership, aka The Democrat Front.
I did not realize we had so many French Republicans.
It confirms what I have sensed all along. The Reps are starting to panic. They are the ones coming up with all of the alternatives. They are again negotiating with themselves.
They should just do nothing and ask the President and Reid to come up with a plan. Otherwise the miniscule cuts should go forward. We all know that this does not bind subsequent Congresses and that much of money will be restored under the CR negotiations.
Obama and the Dems are sending a clear message. No spending cuts will be tolerated--however small. It is meant to intimidate the Reps from making any further "cuts" without including tax increases on the "rich."
IF this is true, the republicrat party is done.
Stick a fork in it and drive a stake through its heart. And good riddance!
