Skip to comments.Boner: 'You have to pass it so you can find our what is in it' (Vanity)
Posted on 12/12/2013 6:43:25 PM PST by ConservativeInPA
Two days ago Paul Ryan and Patty Murray announced a budget deal. Forty-eight hours later, it passes the House. In the two days since the announcement, Boner attacks conservatives twice. One of of attacks included something to the effect that conservative groups didn't have a chance to read the bill before being against the bill.
What ever happened to a little deliberative process? I certainly did not have time to read the bill. I did not have time to convey my thoughts to my congressman, Scott Perry (R-PA), who voted for the bill. Did Scott Perry even read the bill? How many congressmen read the bill?
I know the Senate is supposed to be the deliberative body in Congress, but the Republicans do not have a majority in the Senate. Boner pushed this bill through as fast as he could, because he knew the wrath of conservatives that would occur if congressmen went home over the holidays and the American public knew what was in the bill.
There is a reason why committees exist. There is a reason why meetings and hearings are held. The biggest of which is that there are no surprises on short notice. Boner is no better that Pelosi. Most Republicans might as well be Democrats.
There is a serious problem in Washington and unfortunately my congressman is now a part of the problem.
Really? what was the vote?... who voted "for"?
please excuse my typos ... darn iPad and I was watching the hockey game while writing.
She is from WA state,, I am like the spelling po-po.Sawree!
>> When I heard that Ryan struck a deal with Murray I knew immediately it had to be a bad deal because who Murray is.
I assume they’re having an affair. I don’t see any other possible explanation.
see the top of breaking news ... roll call 640 vote.
She the right size for him, but she doesn’t have a flat head and I seriously doubt if she turns into a six pack and a pizza at midnight.
It passed with over 330 supporting it.
I heard Boehner on the radio and my thought was the same....he’s channeling Pelosi. This guy is worse than worst.
Shot in the back again. Or should that be shot in the backroom again?
Maybe it was a bedroom?
Okay, let’s get real here. Do you expect have our views taken seriously writing a perverted screed like this repeatedly writing out the word for an erect male penis?
They don’t even write the bills.
Their staffers do. They are just their collecting paychecks, benefits and bribes while those that can’t be touched write the code that destroys America.
They do not know or care what’s in it.
I am so pissed. The military retirees NOW are getting screwed while the federal workers who start on January 1st are getting screwed, but current federal workers are not being affected. Ok so I am both but the military retiree thing pisses me off so much. And then Ryan saying that everyone must be treated fairly in this bill Oh really? Why do current federal employees get exempt but current military retirees do not? Some kind of fairness .
1. Politically, you only attack what you are fearful of.
2. Boehner is using the same verbiage as Democrats to attack the Tea Party.
3. Boehner and the GOPe are all fearful of what the Tea Party will do.
4. This should be enough OPTICS and NARRATIVE so show that the GOPe and Democrats are ALL AFRAID of losing their jobs more than steering the country.
Period. They ALL must be primaried out.
What was the vote on the bill? How did the “Tea Party” reps vote?The Republicans and the Democrats together seem determined to end the Republic before the next elections.
50 in the house! It’s on another thread
“Let’s get real...”?
I don’t think there is anything in the world that ConservativeInPA could say that would cause virtually any member of this Congress to take it seriously.
Why should we have to bother?
We don’t need to know what’s in the bill. If two drunks are standing under a lamp post at 3:00 AM discussing what to tell their wives, do we have to listen to the story to know it is BS? No, but these arrogant jokers think we should take THEM seriously. Sorry, no sale.
Let’s tell it like it is, they are the filthy joke.
It’s a crap sammich and they know it. GOP=’Rats until proven otherwise. All these crap sammiches are always passed in a NY minute.
You know they’re getting ‘antsy’ to ram some crap through before the end of the year. They know most of us let our guards down at Christmas season. The dirty, skulking weasels.
All five Louisiana Republicans voted with Boehner.
We can “primary” them, but I don’t think the low-information Republican primary voters will take the bait.
The “rebranded” Bonehead has declared war on his voter base. Brilliant move meathead. The state controlled “media” has got the GOOBs convinced that they are going to win big in 2014. LOL! I’ve got some bad news for them. All of the former Republicans I know say that they are only going to vote for TEA Party candidates if they even bother to vote at all. My hardcore, conservative brother in law said he’s finished with politics and voting all together. No more checks to the GOP from him. Way to go GOOBs!
Republicans will face intense pressure over unemployment benefits

[snip] The imminent expiration of the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program for 1.3 million Americans is mostly being treated as a fait accompli in Washington... (Dems have created an interactive map showing how many people in each state stand to lose benefits.)... This strategy includes placing Op ed pieces by Democrats in papers that serve the districts of top Republicans, such as this one by Rep. Sander Levin in the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the largest paper in John Boehners home state. The game plan is granular: One Democrat points out to me that stats are available on how many would lose benefits on the county level, and that Dems are trying to push these numbers into the coverage, because it is tangible for people in local communities.
