Exactly! If we don't go to citizen representatives and many many more, perhaps based on counties/parishes in each state (in this case over 3,000), we don't survive.
So, just heard its Senate plan but will most likely strip a House bill/send with their language & then it will in effect be a bill originated in House.
RATS play dirty, we play footsies.
& I’m sure everyone will have chance to read it too...
If Boehner does this we are without a doubt no longer a Constitutional Republic.
I still have yet to see a bill number in either chamber.
Rep Louis Gohmert from Texas
the way to “negotiate” is from a position of strength. the GOP is a minority in the senate and there’s a democrat in the WH. we need to nominate articulate, credible conservatives and win elections, and not nominate clowns like mourdock, akin, o’donnell, angle, etc., who can’t win RED states, let alone purple ones...
Bring up the Senate Bill as the base text. Ideally one would do this under an open rule but given the time constraints, allow each major faction to make a couple of amendments with 30 minutes of debate. See what the House passes.
I think the Vitter amendment would pass. Not sure about anything else.
A true third party is needed. The Tea Party members in Congress need to led the way.
What Conservatives don't realize is that Boehner and the rest of the GOPe view us as their true enemy.
I have said throughout these weeks that Boehner plans to push amnesty in order to replace the Conservative base with what he thinks will be many grateful illegals.
He is dead wrong... The RATS will turn many purple states solid blue and Texas will fall by 2018.
The Statists of both parties are about to finish off our Republic as it was founded.
Looks like Karl Rove recently joined FR as “stonewall_jackson215”.
i’m just saying, i think boehner is in an impossible position
I'm ready for a viable 2nd party.
I am probably missing something but I do not understand why what is not good for the goose is not good for the gander.
Presuming that raising the debt ceiling and funding obamacare are orthogonal, Boehner can still let a bill come to the House floor that does nothing other than raise the debt ceiling until the end of the year.
He can time it so that the senate has no choice but to pass it, given all the media hoopla about deadlines, etc.
(As a devil’s advocate, I’ll now argue a point against this notion.)
If it is true as some say that Oct. 17 is not the actual default deadline and the actual deadline is sometime between Oct. 22 and Nov. 1, then Reid and the senate can simply ignore such a House bill in hopes that the MSM will not notice that the sky is not falling, and continue to pick on the House for being the recalcitrant operator in the debt ceiling crisis (as the MSM and Democrats appear to have done with Obamacare funding)...
