Posted on 12/10/2013 3:24:59 PM PST by Olog-hai
Congressional budget negotiators have reached a two-year agreement aimed at avoiding a government shutdown on Jan. 15 and setting federal government spending levels through Oct. 1, 2015.
Democratic Senator Patty Murray and Representative Paul Ryan scheduled a news conference for 6 p.m. EST to announce the details of the deal they worked out.
As details of a budget deal trickled out of Washington on Tuesday, conservative groups prepared to oppose any agreement that would alter the automatic spending cuts from the 2011 deal.
Republican and Democratic negotiators budget agreement would stop as much as $65 billion in sequestration cuts and avoid a possible federal government shutdown next month.

A “bipartisan deal”. That’s assuming of course that there are still TWO parties.
Paul Ryan had way too many of us fooled in his VP campaigning.
And we get sold down the river again;what else is new?
Both parties support big government and big spending. We are going to get plenty of parsing of words and plenty of lying. There will be tax increases (they will be called fees and other increases in revenue); there will be an end to the sequester for the next two years to assuage the crony capitalists (many of them in the defense industry) and an increase in government spending balanced out by some ambiguous cuts in out years; and there will be no entitlement reform—just some cuts in federal pensions and increases in federal employee retirement contributions.
If you compromise with the devil, the devil wins even if it is ever so slowly.....then the devil uses it against you in the future and says you were for it too!
As long as there are no tax increases, I guess I’m OK with it, as I don’t think a protracted battle and any talk of another shut down help the republicans at all.
I think if the dems can be forced to agree to no tax or “revenue” increases, it’s a win for us, because that is their holy grail.
This was our VP candidate last year. The whole 2012 campaign was a big joke!
As long as it is in the aggregate personal interest of individual reps and three term reps to spend us into bankruptcy . . .
Here is my take after watching Ryan. He is every bit the damn liar that Obama is.
This is why Americans’ are sooooooo fed up with this out of control administration and the RINO’s who bend over backwards to support them!
Just came out in the news, (Drudge) that numerous Republicans are in love with Obamacare!
Bi-partisan? Communist Murray and RINO Ryan, those two (2) really represent the American people, NOT! Ever wonder why the budget negotiations were conducted in secret and behind locked doors? Now you know why!
The grace of God is what militates against this, however.
And when the grace of God goes face to face with the blasphemies of the devil... the grace of God wins.
Satan is a laughable little runt. As far as God is concerned.
sells us a little
down the river
There is a reckoning coming, and it won't be pretty. Some will die. But these politicians don't care.
Some of that revenue Ryan thought up is charging better off seniors higher Medicare premiums to offset some of the sequester cuts.
Ryan is a liberal jackass!
RYAn is DEAD to me....DEAD!
“I dont think a protracted battle and any talk of another shut down help the republicans at all”
Shut it down WITH ABSOLUTELY NO RETROACTIVE PAY!!!!!
Whew, thank God. I was hoping we wouldn’t attempt to ever put our fiscal house in order.
I hear that!!
What's worse is for me Ryan made voting for Romney, ahem, palatable....I'm having a hard time trusting anyone who would enter the political arena anymore.
Something about that DC water....
Yep, Ryan was supposed to be the conservative one, at least they told us as much
As Milton Friedman said. the rate of spending is the real rate of taxation.
I very reluctantly agree with you. We should all know that there were going to be no cuts. To do so would have compromised the 2014 elections in the eyes of the DC elite.
So in exchange for spending more money, what does the GOP win?
We need to keep our eyes on the prize—which is taking over the Senate in ‘14. The driver for taking the Senate is Obamacare, and a budget battle will take the focus off of Obamacare.
In the end, yes, but not now here on Earth, unfortunately.
Be very careful, the news that claims GOP are in favor of Obamacare was written by a mischievous lefty. Not a good source to make the claim you are making.
Even on earth it can make strong inroads. The trouble is that people won’t practice it.
Well, now...nothing wrong with that.
The Who was smarter than I gave them credit for.
The RINO establishment only want to tinker around the edges of Obamacare, they are in fact in love with the idea of controlling every Americans healthcare, don't be fooled, the RINO’s love Obamacare, they are going to hide this fact from the American people, much like they hide their desire to grant amnesty to more than 40 million Mexican Nationals who have illegally entered this Country!
The Earth was given to Satan, our redemption it the acceptance of Christ as the Savior.
Yes we can fight, but the outcome is inevitable.
In the long run the budget is far more important!
I don’t give a rats ass about health insurance.
Get government completely put of medicine and eliminate all health insurance and return to what health care was when i was growing up, get sick, got to doctor or hospital and pay for it.
health care was good and cheap.
Satan wasn’t Satan when the earth was first given to him.
Might be true, but what is the alternative? I guess we give up because so far I see no reaction to the tree of liberty being chopped down to its last branch. Not from Congress and nothing from the citizens so far. Crickets are chirping.
What do you suggest? A fair election? *snort*
If I am wrong, please correct me.
Begin the Article 5 State process for submitting proposed amendments to the US Constitution for adoption by the States so this can never happen again!
In example: term limits for Supreme Court Justices; no more run away administrations like the EPA, IRS, etc.
Repeal the 16th Amendment of the US Constitution and eliminate the IRS, stop feeding the beast!
Stop supporting the RINO’s and eliminate all socialist from public office all the way down to dog catcher at the local level!
At least that is a start!
Paul Ryan is a lightweight. He demonstrated this in his “debate” with that other moron Biden.
Why cut spending when you can just print more money? Geez, these people don’t have a responsible clue.
They kicked the can down the road again, so what’s new?
Hell is the only irrevocable chattel of Satan. The earth is a battle ground, and things in it need not be yielded to Satan, though weak Christians often cede it as a result of overly wooden theology. Think: if the earth were entirely Satan’s, there would not be any healings. It only “belongs to Satan” in a relative sense. The New Testament term “world” is more closely aligned with what Satan actually does rule.
Can the Wisconsites do a Recall on this Benedict Arnold? He will probably not get reelected as there are numerous veterans in his district. janesville is still reeling from the GM Auto plant closure. years ago Parker pen closed. what industry is left in Janesville? it has been many years since i have been through Janesville.
Janesville is probably like the UP of Michigan deadville.
Let me put it more boldly: you are afraid to claim Christ’s conquering power. Friends we make with the mammon of unrighteousness WILL greet us in heavenly dwellings. The ephemeral stuff will go away, but that’s not what is important.
uh huh. In case you haven’t noticed, the elections are rigged now and nobody will do a thing to stop it. Pipe dreams.
I'll just say God Bless and continue to fight for what's right in the spirit of The Light...I know you will too FRiend!!
So in exchange for spending more money, what does the GOP win?
Their big donors get pork. Oink oink.
Murray also said that congressional leaders are discussing the possibility of extending some expiring federal benefits for the long-term unemployed but that such legislation will not be included in the two-year budget deal.
BTW, Christ didn't come to conquer, he came to show the way:
"No one comes to the Father but through me...."
