I did some quick math:
Current revenues: $2.4T or $200B a month
Debt ceiling was raised: $1.0T and will get us to Feb 7 (4 months)
So, the debt will increase $1T / 4 mos at a rate of $250B a month
With this they are admitting that they will spend $200B in revenues and $250B in debt for a total of $450B a month
$450B * 12 mos = $5.4T annually!
The worst budget in history was at $4.0T!
That is a 35% increase in spending!
The “victory” for the GOP-e was that they think that they put Cruz in his place! By extension, they put Americans in their place and confirmed that we are subjects to be under DC’s RULE!
We now are entering the stage in which we will see repeated failure of Obamacare followed by laudatory encomia about how hard the administration is trying to set up Obamacare, only to be thwarted by those mean Tea Partiers. All primarily announced by John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and their ilk, who will state that it “coulda been a contenda” if only it wasn’t brain-damaged at birth by those bastard Doctors Cruz and Lee.
For now that is.
I consider that the team try-outs are now over.
The Varsity squad is the Democratic party, and the Junior Varsity is the Republican party for Obama High.
I will be happy to be on the practice squad, hoping I can twist a few ankles. It’s too bad they have no other teams to play.
The sad thing is that the GOP was more focused on “defeating” the Tea Party than on opposing Obama’s agenda.
I guess that confirms everything Angelo Codevilla wrote about the Ruling Class.
The GOP is as of yesterday DEAD.
Happy Birthday Tom Marr!
I think that the issue now is, can the current Constitutional Structure of our country outlast a nation of socialists who wish to structure the nation as a beehive.
We reward people based on need.
We penalize success, production, intelligence, logic, and hard work.
It will not be long before the only entrepreneurship will be in developing new ways to demonstrate need. Those with the greatest need will be the last to fall.
The Republic will fall due to the greed and ennui of the needy.
The needy will fall due to the death of the host.
We are seeing a political AIDS pandemic, so virulent, that we can only hope it kills the host so quickly that it cannot effectively spread.
The only inoculation is to pray, I think.
Congrats to rwi for winning the Rush Limbaugh Show Thread Golden EIB Mic Award for Best Thread posting for October 17, 2013. :)=^..^=
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
The train is now so long it is being pulled by four engines.
Rush, I am doing good today because we all knew at some point that the Senate “GOP” would force an awful compromise. The frustrating point is how readily willing Boehner was, but again, not a huge surprise.
In the end, this battle just drew the lines a little more in focus.
It is now firmly the Democrat-Republicans vs We the People.
One of those engines is the $3 billion dollar bribe to build a dam in Kentucky.
If what you steal is valuable enough, it is no longer theft, but becomes public policy.
If I stole $3 billion, I would never see the light of day.
If our Republican leader steals $3 billion in the form of a bribe for the vote, it is a reasonable compromise to keep the country from being disliked.
Do you have the numbers on the debt being cut inhalf under Obama - I thought he said that in his little endzone dance speech today.
Good math....and the announcement was made that this GRAND BARGAIN was funding at the sequester levels.....
Oh, and just remember, this “raising of the debt ceiling” did not mean that we are going to go further into debt, it just meant that we can now pay the bills that Congress had already approved the funding for.
Perhaps Boehner and McConnell could have at least negotiated for Reid and Obama to at least go back to ANNUAL BUDGETING instead of running the federal government at a constant state of panic, but that was probably too much to ask.
Why the Shutdown is a Republican Victory
by Peter Beinart Oct 14, 2013 5:45 AM EDT
Hey all! busy this morning so not a lot of comments from me today.
I know, I know. Try to survive without me.
I mean, hey, I survived the shutdown without having to eat the cat, well, she is recovering, but that is from eye surgery, not me being a cattibal.
If you look at the numbers, it is impossible that we “are at the 2008 spending level.” We know the gov takes in $200B a month and we know that this $1T debt ceiling increase will only get us through January! Hence, it is clear that the plan is to spend $450B a month!
The funny thing is that 3 bill approved for a dam today may be shovel ready in 10 years after all the environmental “concerns” are satisfied and most likely shelved before then...
I need a link to this article or chart that Rush is discussing.....
It will also pay for the planning, engineering, and surveying costs, and building permits only.
Hello overtaxed guys and gals
workin’ and lurkin’ today.

Thank you very much.
Freep ya later.
Yes, Democrats won! Now go get your free health care!
This man is the only Boner I know that can still micturate on the People and the Constitution while still awake. That takes a lot of skill.
McConnell will grow a chin before that dam is fixed
I wish he would grow a spine.
Why is Taxeschusettes not on the list?
BTW, I notice the libtard states are paying less by making us subsidize their welfare states.
Or his set will drop...
So, how do we feel about Crispy Creme allowing an election to fill the Laut’s Senate seat, now that we know the results?
I understand that this was one option, with another being to appoint a Senator until the next regular election to serve.
Is this the result in Jersey that that lovable little creme-filled crepe wanted? I think it is.
Look at all the good will he will garner from the left in his efforts to remain in power and to tease about running for the Socialist-in-Chief. He’s so fair, he’s willing to sacrifice the Senate seat in Jersey! More importantly, thank God he did not appoint a Tea Partier to the Seat!
hmmm... only 47 states listed + Wash DC
Yep, sure enough predictable House RINO’s would team with Democrats as the media gleed the Senate Deal rose.
Reid and McConnell should have been laughed at for making a deal among themselves without the House. Boehner allowed the deal to pass.
VDH was on Greg Garrison prog yesterday [hr 3]
“Things done that would reduce the deficit:
We have sequestration
We raised inc tax on the top bracket
We end war in Iraq
We’re pulling out of Afghanistan
Interest rates that service the debt are at all-time lows
We are paying same amount of debt service we did in 1996 when the deficit was 1/3 the size because of interest rate
With all of that we are still borrowing $600 bil a year, maybe more-— with no foreign wars, with sequestration, with cheap interest rates, with inc tax hikes.
To deal with that, you are going to have to risk being hated.”
