I disagree...Boehner did great..IF you look at it from the “average citizen” perspective. ‘conversation” is what Obozo uses and the ave citizen hears...If Obozo is not even willing to have a “conversation”, that is bad in the citizen’s eyes.they understand that.

Yeah I saw this last night. Supposedly they can’t have a home there unless they already have a another home. Its the absolute pitts. Also the current park head Jarvis is trying to get more funding to buy any properties that are privately owned by anyone in any park. Typical fuhrer type attitude,kick em all out.

I soooo agree with you (therfoee, we are right, ha).

Boehner did great.HE has to communicate to the average viewer...NOT US! And he did a strong job with that. Its time to support him when he DOES well. boehner is not Cruz, we need to get over that and keep ushing Boehner to do as good as he can .

on Meet the Press this morning Jack Lew said
"... the economy is coming back..."

Really Jack, after 5 years the best you can say is the economy is coming back!

Jack Lew also said
"...a government agency that needs intelligence..."

Pass, too easy

Q.Obamacare, do you think it's going well?
A. "I think, ya know, you know. I, I, I'm, I'm, ah, uh ... ... ... ... it's working well"

Bob we really have something there!! If we combine the fact that we have the money coming in every month and the amount of interest to be paid is miniscule and get the word out we win they lose big time!!

Great post ( and of course, I agree with you..ha)

Obozo’s viscious spitefullness and hatred of everything that is good about our country can only come from someone steeped in the anti USA hatred of the Left. Lets hope he overplays his hand, as he is doing now.
Hard for lots of younger americans to get this as they had Govt education and we only have a minuscule percentage of citizens now in the military, unlike WWII.

Jack Lew said something like “by October the whatever we will not be able to borrow any more money” and only in the insular atmosphere of Washington and the Sunday talk shows would they not be able to hear the “Hallelujah!” that rang out across the land.

Just too good had to be repeated.!@!

Thanks,lets just hope that the common sense of this situation that we have the money and the interest on the debt is miniscule in comparison to the money we bring in we should win this war easily.

Great job by Cruz with Candy. It is refreshing to hear someone like Cruz stand on his principles and be articulate enough to defend them. There is a reason why the Dems and the RINOs are making ad hominem attacks against him. When you are over the target, you get the most flack.

1) They get their back pay upon return to work
2) Return to work is not guaranteed, hopefully, for EPA, OSHA, Dept of Education, etc
3) One step closer to funding all od Government, except for 0bamacare

Boehner should stop saying we are risking a default. The only way we default is if Obama chooses to default. Our creditors should be assured by the President that they will be paid rather than issuing inflammatory rhetoric.

“Clean” meaning “Comprehensive, All-inclusive”

Peter King is an idiot.
Yes, to create a law is a one time vote. That is started and worked out by one committee.

That is not the same as funding the Government. A second, different committee works out how to spend money each year. If you do not have the money to run a program, too bad. The program gets zero dollars for that cycle.

Third, the President needs to spend the money. The Boarder fence is law, funded, and the President refuses to spend the money

George Will from ABC now a Fox panelist. Paul Gigot from Fox now an ABC panelist. FOX has now completely jettisoned its position as an alternative to the main-stream media and has become one of them.

Their are no cash or liquid assets in the SS trust fund.
All benefit payments are made with incoming tax cash, or by printing money to cover IOU’s. All SS trust fund assets are IOU’s

Exactly!
This story is so easy to tell I’m hoping rush tells it on Monday. Why we can’t get it across is a mystery to me! We have the money. The sums are small compared to the money we take in without borrowing. There should not even be a default discussion unless that is the plan of the regime. It absolutely does not have to happen! Just from the numbers all we need is to keep giving out the numbers, we win they lose.

...almost all government employees are bureaucrats and many are unionized, they have a thousand ways to put “pressure” on the rest of us to sustain their quite comfortable situations. In other words, we now work for them in the form of our tax dollars that pay their benefits and salaries, and any efforts to join TEA parties, fight back, etc., are met with bureaucratic government measures, like spending money they don't have

Mornin' Larri; Lemme boil that down...

BureaucRAT unions run the country.

I guess the GOP forces 0bama to first pay interest on the debt.
Second, they already have a CR to pay the military.

0bozo can decide how to spend any remaining incoming cash, as he is at, or passed, the debt limit.

0bozo has more than enough incoming cash to pay interest, and avoid default

Agreed. Boehner should have been saying what Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have been saying. The MSM needs to confronted every time they bring up default. It is a false narrative.

Posted the following on another thread, but guess it could apply here as well...pass it on if you like.


Any more of this CHARLEY FOXTROT and I may become upset.

In the meantime, while checking for NPS (Royal) Decrees in my neighborhood, I got shunted off to the Department of Interior site.

Which just so happens to still operate, has all of the supporting documentation/contingency plans for the Dread Event and has a “Contact Us” page which one supposes is intended for feedback from us humble subjects:

http://www.doi.gov/public/contact-us.cfm

If we can’t go to the parks and monuments that WE PAID FOR, I do think that maybe a few of us should light up these little petty tyrants the same way we did Congress’ switchboards last week.

Lew avoided any direct answers, of course, none want to go on record.

I just watched the Sen. Cruz and Mr. John Boehner interviews. Both men did a superb job. No attacks on anyone, just the simple facts.

Reed will not allow the Senate to vote on House passed appropriation bills - Sen.Cruz

Obama will not call me to negotiate - Mr. John Boehner

Yes, the Tea Party chorus is providing strong support to the House leadership spinal implant problem.

Sen Cruz as ever is the best thing to happen to the U.S. since the Revolutionary war.

When interviewers/attackers want to hurt Cruz they throw in his face any criticism he has ever gotten. What they never mention is how many times he has argued cased in front of the Supreme Court.

From his wiki bio: Cruz has authored more than 80 United States Supreme Court briefs and presented 43 oral arguments, including nine before the United States Supreme Court.

What the left like to pretend is in Obama’s resume’, is truly in Cruz’s story.
