Passing bills to find out whats in them that was so 2010, right?
Any day now, Congress is likely to release the trillion-dollar Trojan horse that is the spending bill for 2014. Its going to be big, and its going to be rushed. And few members of Congress (if any) are going to read it all.
Government budgeting isnt supposed to be done this way.
It takes 12 spending bills to fund the entire government. But in an omnibusthe type of bill experts are expectingCongress throws all of those together and just votes once on the whole thing.
This type of rushed, bloated spending bill is guaranteed to include ineffective government programs, giveaways to corporate cronies, and pork projects. And these are not harmlesstaxpayers are funding each and every one. This approach will increase spending, waste taxpayer dollars, and raise our national debt.
As Heritages Grover M. Hermann Fellow Romina Boccia warns, If there were more time, such red flags would be revealed, increasing opposition to the effortwhich is why appropriators are expected to provide as little time as possible between introducing the bill and the final vote.
For lawmakers who have said they cant find any room to cut, Heritage experts have a few ideas. Taxpayers could save $10.2 billion if Congress just got rid of these 10 wasteful federal programs.
Taxpayers need to make it clear that passing bills to see whats in themlike Obamacarewont fly any more. We expect our elected officials to know what theyre voting onand what theyre charging taxpayers for.
The Foundry will be doing its part to highlight the wasteful spending contained in the next budget bill. Heritage experts will be delivering thorough analysis. Dont miss it.
Where is Speaker Boehner and the Republicans?.
Don't they have a vote? Are they not in the majority? Are there no level heads among them? What is going on? If Government budgeting isn't to be done this way, let's NOT do it that way. Let's do it the right way!!!!!! For how long are we going to permit the "big spenders" to do as they please, and continue their destructive practices?
Boehner MUST go.
Think about it ... if you or I were a congresscritter of SOME caliber, and we knew of this ... would we REALLY sit back and be quiet?
Wouldn't we do SOMEthing dramatic to bring attention to these things ?
I think I could buy a page in my hometown newspaper and at least tell THEM
I think I could rent a KOC hall and announce ala glenn beck breaking news, SOME kind of announcement
I think I could come up with a way that would frustrate and bypass the lamestream and get the phrases out ... treason, cover-up, coup d'tat .. etc.
Instead, we ask , "Where's bonehead" ?
Good lead in, introduction , to the article, and most apt !
Obmamacare is criminal fraud ; simply put:"BAIT AND SWITCH "
More effort has gone into trying to keep Obamacare afloat, than effort to read it , entirely.
An old addage :
Fool me once , .. shame on you !!
Fool me twice, .. and I'll elect a REAL representative !
Absolute Lunacy !!
The faggot needs to be WILSONED !
Forget about cutting - I have an idea for raising revenue that would have most true conservatives happy: Repeal Title 18, Section 922(o) and allow the BATFE to process (for a $200 fee each time) applications for registration of newly-manufactured full auto firearms. This drain on revenue has existed since 5/19/1986, and must be plugged!
Why is it that something so innocuous - it would only take a line or two of text in a thousand-page bill - can’t be slipped in to some omnibus spending bill?
He must be behind this monstrosity. It can't move through the House without his support for it.
