ROFL You've got that right.
The scum has risen to the surface for all to see and memorize their names. Now, start cleaning the sewer starting with these names in 2014. Primary them out.
If a bill NOT to approve an increase is submitted, then the vote would be taken. Otherwise, the increase would be automatic, BUT at what amount of dollars for how long a period of time?
Rush Limbaugh isn’t often wrong, but he was wrong today when he said that the Constitution requires a budget. It does not. (Which makes me wonder why in the world we’d ever have a balanced budget amendment before we had a required budget amendment.)
Since there is no requirement for a budget, although it would be profoundly wise to have one, ANY process for disbursing funds appears to be constitutional provided it originates in the HOUSE. The only requirements are that a ledger must be kept and honesty maintained, since malfeasance is punished.
Therefore, the HOUSE of representatives is the culprit in the great cave-in of Oct 16, 2013. At that time they gave away the power of the purse for exactly nothing.
And according to this article, they may have given away for now the authority to PROPOSE debt spending and not simply to react.
That original power of initiating spending could easily be taken back by a powerful, principled Speaker who is backed by his caucus. We do not have that now. Boehner is not powerful, has malleable principles, and is not backed by his caucus.

get rid of Mitchy
amen!! Once this chapter is closed there is still some unfinished business ... revenge!
February is too long, Johnny.
In fact, the very precedent being set by this sell-out is too much.
Toss in a $2 billion pork package to KY (and OH, by proximity), and you have a clear case of fiscal treason, IMO.
Neither the dhimmicraps or the pubbies represent the will of the people at this juncture.
Sorry, I just don’t believe it. I hope you prove me wrong, but I believe the Dems will get that “temporary extension” permanent. We’ll see in February.....
Not picking on you, just this statement comes up more than the correct statement does.
The house has dibs on origination of TAXING (bills for raising revenue), not on spending. Obviously the House has to agree to the spending.
Then beef up your research. The bill will raise the debt ceiling until Feb.
It is a partial debt ceiling hike with negotiations to begin again in a few months.
So, will republicans hold the line in Feb? Fat chance! Hence another debt ceiling hike of 1.1 Trillion.
Tom hell with that noise. That’d be an unconstitutional power grab worthy of tossing them all into the brig. The founders warned us this would be coming.
McConnell is a whore. An expensive political whore.
Primary him, Kentucky. Please.
