Skip to comments.The Invulnerability of Government Spending
Posted on 02/15/2014 7:57:44 AM PST by detective
The latest budget battle in Washington has Democrats and Republicans once again at loggerheads. Democrats think Republicans should get nothing in return for another debt ceiling increase. Republicans think they should get less than nothing.
The House GOP leadership has longed to stop the gory budget showdowns of the past few years. That means giving up on further cuts and passing a clean debt ceiling increase; a cringeworthy proposal, but one that should have attained enough Democrat and establishment Republican support to pass the House. Instead, the GOP found a creative way to make it worse. Republicans attached a provision to the debt ceiling increase that would cancel $6 billion worth of savings from military pension reforms in the Ryan-Murray budget. This would be offset by an extension of sequestration on Medicare spending 10 years from now.

Do you get the feeling, there is something missing from this equation?
You can ignore reality, but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.
Fascist countries always end up invading other countries when they run out of their own wealth to pillage.
Canada and Mexico take note...
An opposition party, perhaps?
Bingo. That’s it. Why aren’t “our” guys behaving like an opposition party?

There is a simple answer. The Paul Mac Penny Plan. Easy and simple to sell to the public. Need dim votes, simple. When the senate shuts down government and the press tries to blame you tell them the dims better get on the phone to their senators because the folks on the dole will not get one penny of the federal money they lose while the government is shutdown. The longer the government is shutdown to more federal money the looters lose. I think that will work. Of course you have to have a spine, testicular fortitude, and the will to destroy Reid and his dims. Many here do. The pubbie leadership, apparently not. And they lie straight to our face.
Because they don't oppose the goals?
(and they aren't "our" guys...)
I can only assume the pubbies think we'll turn out in droves for them this coming November because they aren't democrats. Bad idea.
