Tea Party extremism has me “worried”!: Tammy Baldwin talks to Salon
salon.com ^ | October 07, 2013 | Josh Eidelson

Posted on 10/07/2013 5:48:28 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

"I’m worried…We have another deadline looming: the October 17 deadline for needing to lift the debt ceiling…I fear that some of the Tea Party-inspired members of the House want to wait until that deadline comes to exact greater leverage for their political agenda."

"....I think when we see Tea Party members of the House willing to close, to shutter the government, and Tea Party members of the House who have articulated that they would allow the government to default on its debts, that you have a level of extremism that is unparalleled by any other faction in either house."

Perhaps, but not enough that she would sit down at a table with any and discuss the issues.

That airhead (Baldwin) happens to be one of my senators (Which I did not vote for). I hope she gets real worried and for a long time. She was elected by the Madison “underground”.

She has never set foot in a beauty salon but she does spend a lot of time at the carpet warehouse.

"I’m worried…We have another deadline looming: the October 17 deadline for needing to lift the debt ceiling…I fear that some of the Tea Party-inspired members of the House want to wait until that deadline comes to exact greater leverage for their political agenda."

Let us recast this:

"I’m worried… We have another deadline looming: My paycheck can't cover the bills.I fear that the Bank may not again accept my 19% Credit Card this time and I will actually have to make my mortgage payment. I wish I could regret my vacations to Paris and Rio but they were damn fun so I don't know why the bank is foreclosing!"

Maybe she should be more worried about the people of this country turning on said government.

I think when we see the President willing to close, to shutter the government, and Democrat Senators who have articulated that they would allow the government to default on its debts, that you have a level of extremism that is unparalleled by any other faction in either house.

Fixed it

Me thinks the liberals know they’re in trouble on this issue. Why else have they resorted to calling our side anarchists and extremists of the worst kind. The Democrats are a one trick pony and they have nothing of substance to stand on so expect the hate and venom to only increase.

Considering the fact that a good many democrats literally want us exterminated in a physical sense, shutting down the government seems pretty minor in comparison even though its the democrats fault.

The article says she is the first LGBT senator.

Lesbian, gay, bi-sexual AND transgender.

Gosh, she has been a busy little thing.

Tea Party “extremism”...LOL...Yes being against communism is now considered “extreme”. Not wanting to live under a totalitarian government is “extreme”. This is where we are at now ladies and gentlemen, surrounded by absolute brain dead ass clowns who feel those who do not bow and serve the government instead of the other way around LIKE IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE are “extremists”.

Being born into, and a native of the govt providing everything, it is terrifying when confronted with absolute freedom. You don’t work, you starve to death. You don’t take the effort to set up to protect your family, you can all be killed. No mommy to provide your safety net. Natives to govt love cradle to grave are horrified at pure freedom.

It’s about time congress did it’s job. The problem is ..they waited way too long. Extremism is definitely an issue as in Multi trillion dollar debt without end amen.

Waiting for zero to destroy the economy and government in general to impose unworkable restrictions to starting new businesses, and killing jobs so that you can’t work for a living was extremism at it’s finest! Who exactly IS at fault for that? Does fault even matter anymore?

The fact remains that our national budget does need an overhaul but it isn’t necessarily supporting government empowerment that needs to be kept.

They must think ‘we the people’ are extremely stupid

TEA Party members need to turn this consistent “extreme” description back on the extreme liberals like Barack Hussein Obama and say who is really extreme and why. They are letting themselves get stuck with that label because they never defend themselves against it.

The representatives in the House were ELECTED to be there. They are, for once, doing what the people that elected them WANT. The liberals simply cannot grasp that. There is a separation of powers for a REASON.

“....I think when we see Tea Party members of the House willing to close, to shutter the government, and Tea Party members of the House who have articulated that they would allow the government to default on its debts, that you have a level of extremism that is unparalleled by any other faction in either house.”

The speaker of those words is telling lies.

With no budget resolution in place and no raise in the national debt limit there will still be no reason or cause fot the President to default on any federal debt obligations that come due, on or after October 17.

There will be a deficit increase (revenue below expenses) if the federal government keeps spending every minute as much as it is spending and its possible for that deficit increase to bring a possible new borrowing demand that would seek to obtain a higher total borrowing than presently allowed by law and the Constitution (which says only Congress can change the debt limit).

However, a remedy for that increase in the deficit does not REQUIRE either a raise in the federal debt limit or a default on federal debt obligations coming due.

Obama’s treasury is REQUIRED by the Constitution to PAY THE DEBT obligations, no matter what other expenses doing so might mean will not get paid. All’s that need really happen is for sequester to get a little tighter, that’s all. That initial increased sequester will also help reduce the deficit in the months to come, continuing to stem the need to raise the debt ceiling.

Obama MUST by the Constitution and by law pay the debt and not default; it is the rest of his extravagant spending programs that will have to be cut further. Obama also cannot avoid those cuts by telling treasury to borrow more money without Congressional approval - the Constitution does not allow Presidents to increase the total U.S. debt allowe - only Congress can.

You said it a lot better than I could.

The debt, defense and a few others are required spending, all the social programs aren’t.

There is plenty of money coming in to pay for these.

Don’t raise the debt limit, all social programs are cut.

As a Wisconsinite, I sincerely apologize for foisting this FREAK on America. Tams is OUR ‘Al Franken,’ to say the very least!

Her seat in our Assembly was BOUGHT & PAID FOR by out of state money, as was her Senate run.

She BEAT Tommy Thompson? If you KNOW Wisconsin Politics, that was pretty much UNFATHOMABLE! Again, lots of out of state money and LOTS of ballot box stuffing in that race.

Again, my apologies.

However, AMAZINGLY, we HAVE given you Governor Scott Walker; future President? I’m thinking, YES...

But I' d do most anything
To keep her alive

My girl ain' t got no hands
Just a pair of teflon pans
But I f d do most anything
To keep her alive

My girl ain' t got no legs
Just some string and wooden pegs
But I'd do most anything
To keep her alive

That was one race I was really surprised about. I could see us losing Montana and North Dakota, but for Tommy Thompson to lose against some nobody queer... that’s like Mike Rounds losing in South Dakota in 2014.

Exactly.
How in the world did it become fashionable to call thrift and personal responsibility extreme?
Taking over 1/6 of the economy and playing dice with the health and well being of 300 million people? To me that sounds extreme.

These people have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about.

[There are] Tea Party members of the House willing to close, to shutter the government, and Tea Party members of the House who have articulated that they would allow the government to default on its debts, that you have a level of extremism that is unparalleled by any other faction in either house.

The Great Sedition Trial of 1944 2014 is building support. FDR's plan to destroy his critics of minor importance before tackling the big guys like Senator Taft failed when the courts finally threw the case out.

The Tea Party members are the little guys and gals. As long as we have an alternate media I don't think it could happen and we can avoid the repeat of

". . . one of the blackest marks on the record of American jurisprudence. In the legal world, none can recall a case where so many Americans were brought to trial for political persecution and were so arrogantly denied the rights [guaranteed] an American citizen under the Constitution.”
