I’m with you that’s what I thought too..How is it that the senate can do this without the house? Please explain.
Kc, You are correct that the House holds the purse and may “propose” budget items to pay, but the proposals must pass in the Senate and be veto proof (from the prez) and which requires 60 votes.
Boehner can’t get House proposals passed, thus the Senate majority is colluding with RINO’s to pass something. If they come up with something nefarious they will send it to the House.
It is thought that the House Democrats together with RINO Boehner, Cantor and company will be enough to pass over the heads of the conservatives in the House.
