Murray warns GOP on debt limit
The Hill ^ | 1/24/14 | Erik Wasson

Posted on 01/24/2014 8:59:10 AM PST by jimbo123

Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) warned Republicans Friday not to seek concessions in exchange for raising the nation’s debt ceiling.

Murray, fresh off negotiating a two-year budget deal with her House counterpart Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), said Democrats will not negotiate over raising the debt ceiling.

“We will not negotiate over whether or not the United States of America should pay its bills,” she writes in a letter sent to her Senate colleagues.

Here come the lies again. The USA rakes in so much money every month to pay the debt 6 times over.

“We will not negotiate over whether or not the United States of America should pay its bills,”

Translation: the House of Representatives shall have no power of the purse. It’s what the Senate wants or nothing! And we won’t simply spend what we take in either. We will intentionally default!

“Murray warns GOP on debt limit”

Having this 81 IQ bimbo “warning” you is like having a Pomeranian yelping at you.

But it’s probably enough to make Ryan, Boehner, and McConnell crawl under their desks.

Didn’t I read claims here last year that part of the October deal made it difficult for congress to stop the next two increases?

It required a super majority to stop from raising it?

I dont have a link yet.

Sigh. The ones who never learn are us. This is happening because the Republicans want it to happen. They’re not being duped. They’re not taking it in the tail pipe. They’re not caving. They’re getting what the want.

In other words:
We have every right to enslave future generations in perpetual debt to pay for our wants and desires today, and don’t you dare try to stop us.

OK, then can we debate over whether the United States should run those bills up in the first place?

It’s like a degenerate gambler arguing how she needs her credit card limit raised so she can pay off her bookie.

We no longer have a debt ceiling. I am surprised Senator Murray did not know that.

It doesn’t matter. If they don’t pass one, Obama gets to submit one that takes effect unless both houses override it. That was in the last cave.

Hold it right there. We are not going to negotiate on the debt limit - we have found a solution. Every member of the military will now be forced to work for free. Zero salary with zero health care. This will save BILLIONS, and will free up tons of money we can give away to illegals, welfare mothers, homosexuals, and abortionists. The distinguished gentlemen to my right agrees with me.

Let's just say that I'm not holding my breath to witness what a "real fight" looks like.

When Patty Murray left for DC she was as poor as a church mouse.

Now she has more money than God.

Several times she was voted the dumbest member of congress.

Why are the Communists even ISSUING this warning. If I am not mistaking, all the power to alter or deny this increase has been removed from anyone until October 1, 2014. Are they planning to play games with these mandatory increases and STILL blame Republicans? We already know the press will lie for them outright, but is this their plan?

They are the Complicit Party.

I agree. If they wanted to fight, they could. It’s their perogative, their right as overseer of the power of the purse, being denied them. They don’t care. The commies in Congress are rubbing it in the faces of conservatives with this rhetoric.

We’re not raising the Debt Limit either.
So, there’s NOTHING TO NEGOTIATE!

Excuse me for saying but this big government two party DC ploy to keep increasing the national debt may soon get more attention than the ruling elite are bargained for. American Spring coming to DC May 16, 2014!!! The folks marching on DC that day might consider showing up with a few hot tar carts, a few loads of dried cow dung and pitch forks. Since those in DC won’t listen to the people, maybe showing them a glimpse of what their own future may hold might be a bit more effective.

Since the shutdown the GOP leadership have doubled down on their proven loser tip toe to the election strategy.

It’s surrender monkey politics from the beltway GOP. The MSM & Dems whipped them. They simply have no interest in being an engaged opposition party while the kenyan is in the WH.

Yes, it’s the old beltway GOP move the cheese game. I heard Peter Roskam on the radio saying the real good news is now they have regular order and will be able to get stuff done.

Surprising, the Dems don’t need regular order to get what they want. They got their IRS law to legalize their assaults on us in the Ryan-Murray bill yet the GOP was unable to get any Obamacare reporting transparency laws in it.

Why is that? The answer is fix is in. The GOP have no interest in being an engaged opposition party while the kenyan is in the WH. If the GOP plan on taking a powder until 2016 conservatives should do the same to the GOP.

Correct. Plus, I’ve always suspected that, in their “hearts,” they like what the Kenyan is doing. My ruling principle about the GOPe: They don’t want smaller government, they want to be the ones in charge of a larger government.
