Posted on 10/16/2013 9:21:56 AM PDT by jimbo123
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has agreed to allow a vote in the House on the emerging Senate debt-ceiling deal, according to a Senate source.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) were racing Wednesday to put the finishing touches on the deal ahead of Thursday's deadline for raising the $16.7 trillion debt limit.

“allow a vote”?? That’s mighty, uh, big of him!
That’s what happens when the Chicgo Democrat thugs have your NSA files. Just ask Chief Wimp Roberts and Gen. Petraeus.
Boner surrenders on Hastert Rule. Will pass Senate plan with more RAT votes than GOP votes.
Everyone ready to get stabbed in the back by a herd of RINOs?
ANY RINO THAT VOTES FOR THIS WILL BE AT THE HEAD OF THE LINE FOR “REPLACEMENT” EVEN IF IT MEANS VOTING ‘RAT!
ah, now I remember...yep, that’s it. Another nail in the GOP coffin.
not one mention/concern about America & it's citizens in there. Typical Graham.
Well, Cruz just announced he will do nothing to block it, even though he could. Does he count?
The conservatives and vulnerable RINO’s will get a pass/cover — and get to vote NO — because Bonehead will forego the Hastert Rule and let the Dims votes count.
Without a House bill the Senate bill is the only game in town.
He has to allow the vote or take all the blame for ‘default’.
WE MAY BE VERY ANGRY BUT WE CAN NEVER VOTE RAT!!! WE
MUST BACK THE TEA PARTY CANDIDATES IN EVERY STATE,
OUR GUYS NEED REINFORCEMENTS!!!
So how big of a spending increase do we get for Boehner’s efforts?
“ANY RINO THAT VOTES FOR THIS WILL BE AT THE HEAD OF THE LINE FOR REPLACEMENT EVEN IF IT MEANS VOTING RAT!”
I hope this is the end of the GOPe. Hopefully enough conservative Repubs will get good and angry at these so-called "leaders" and dump them pronto and we'll end up with a real conservative Republican party again in 2015, in control of the House and the Senate.
Well by allowing a vote, the Dims plus a few squishy GOP members will pass this. That is the Hastert rule will be violated.
How much is a lifetime supply of Jim Beam and Camel Lights?
Guess again....I’ll be voting ‘Rat when it comes time for the fat bastards re-election in NJ....
The GOP is GOING TO CHANGE one way or the other.....
NOT VOTING RINO ANYMORE! I’ll vote ‘Rat if the choice is ‘Rat or ‘Rat wannabe.
It is a big deal. Just ask Harry Reid.
What we don't want is for him to forward a bill that gets all of the Dems and a couple dozen Republicans and passes.
So, if he is smart, he will not allow any such bill to come to the floor.
Agreed, he has no choice. Has to let the vote go through. Hard to fight an egomaniac (Obama) and his trusty sidekick (Reid) when all the democrats march in lockstep.
The sequester cuts were retained! That is a GOP win.
Obamacare may die on its own weight.
We still have the House. Play it right, maybe the Senate. Certainly, won’t help if we keep gov’t shut down. Just can’t manage the PR campaign. No one cares!
We lick our wounds, learn from it and get to fight again.
Why? Dingy Harry didn't allow the Senate to vote on the House bill, and I don't see anyone but us blaming him for the shutdown.
I’ll kick that football next time, I swear.
Let the media be your guide. If the media (and that includes Fox) says someone is ahead in the polls, or if they endorse someone, or say someone is the "right choice for Republicans", or any such thing.... they are the WRONG person.
The MSM picked McCain and Romney, and appear to be picking Christie.
Voting for RATS is too stupid to comprehend
Joe Carr to oust Lamar Alexander in TN
Lee Bright to oust Lindsey Graham in SC
PLEASE, contact Louie Gohmert and tell him we want to add his name as opposing Cornyn
Boehner is Obama in a clown suit.
The House Boehner Shrivels
Schedules vacation in Viagra Falls to recover from his national failure
This is mindboggling to me!
“Default” is a lie. More than enough money comes in to make debt payments. It’s a boogey-man issue.
Only for three more months. Come January/February, that's going to be the next hill that the united democrats fight to die on and the divided, worthless republicans cave on. Watch and see.
Agreed ... and voting for RINO wanna-be 'RATS is even more stupid (or "stupider" for the benefit of obama supporters) ... So what's a conservative to do?
If he does, a majority of Republicans will vote against him.
He will not survive as Speaker, and the GOP will not survive, period.
The overwhelming numbers of Americans are against funding Obamacare, and conservatives will form their own party, placing the GOP as irrevalancy..
HA! You keep thinking that. I don't think Boehner needed to be threatened to give the democrats ALL they want in a spiteful move against Tea Party conservatives.
We're already there. Have been for quite some time now.
The House never sent Harry a debt limit bill.
They didn’t vote on one much less pass one.
Which surprised me.
(You’re thinking of the CR bill maybe.)
Many, many pubbies stayed home in November because of RINO Romney
WE LOST!! Did the GOP change their spots? THEY DAMN WELL KNOW WHY WE LOST, instead blaming immigration!! I AM SO ENRAGED RIGHT NOW I CAN BARELY BREATH!! However WE are to blame we have ALL been working very hard, NOT paying attention to the peril our
great republic was in with these DAMN progressives! They have very
slowly stolen our education system, which has taught our MSM, this has
been done over many years WE ALL WORKED HARD AND PAYED NO
ATTENTION!!! Here we are, do we reward Marxism and vote RAT or do we take responsibility and FIGHT LIKE HELL now that WE are AWAKE,!!!
Sadly, you're almost certainly right.
I'm tired of this ... going to take an extended break and listen to something more intellectual like some recorded clips of Phil Hendrie Show callers and "guests" ...
The Republican party has eventually always allowed everything to pass that has gotten us to where we are today.
“The sequester cuts were retained! That is a GOP win.”
Wow, pretty thin gruel there...
The only ‘win’ I see is that we get to do it again in January.
"Thank you sir, may I have another?"
Tired of getting spanked just for being a member?
Me, too. F*** the GOP. I just registered as an Independent.
Once again .... the Democrat Party has proven their amazing ability to use manipulative leadership. And once again the Republican Party has proven their amazing proclivity to be a manipulated follower. This puppet-master really does excel at .... and truly is a master of his craft.
Stay tuned for:
1) Citizenship for illegal invaders who don't give a F*** about our Constitution
2) FREE health care for these new citizens (Obamacare)
3) Illegals turned Citizens get Obamacare where they register to vote as DEMOCRATS
Are they any good countries I can move to since Obama is allowing this one to be overrun by foreigners?
Spending held to sequester levels?
Never again will I vote for the “lesser of 2 evils”. Goin’ Galt.
Folding and self stacking, for the convenience of the RATs.
