Posted on 07/15/2011 10:07:48 AM PDT by Nachum
The Wall Street Journal is reporting House Republicans will vote next week to cut $2.4 trillion over the next ten years while increasing the debt ceiling by a $2.4 trillion.
House Republicans said Friday that they planned to vote next week on a proposal to raise the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion, with matching cuts and guidelines to control future government spending.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) said at a news conference Friday that the House next week would vote on a "cut, cap and balance" approach. The House plans to separately vote on a measure that would amend the U.S. Constitution to require the federal government to balance its budget.

Kicking the can down the road.
They all need to be thrown out on their ears for high crimes against our Nation - what is worse than bankrupting us and yet still going after the remaining productive citizens to pay more for the continued treason. To those 80% Democrats and whatever inane % of Republicans endorse a tax hike —WHAT IS STOPPING YOU RIGHT NOW???? Send your money to the IRS today- I am sure they (and Barry) would be glad to hear from you.
$2.4 trillion over the next ten years
“over the next ten years”
In other words, never.
It ain’t gonna fly!
What a bunch of sissies.
I disagree (respectfully). This has no chance of passing the senate, but it forces the issue right back onto the democrats. This is smart politics. Maybe the stupid party is not so stupid...
Sometimes the jokes write themselves. Wish this were satire, but it isn't.
Let’s hope the Tea Party contingent pisses on this when it comes up...
This is NOT what the American people are asking for...time for another enema at the polls in 2012...
Next week is a lifetime away.
Get on the phones and demand elimination of some federal agencies.
Debt ceiling is increased ~now~ while the “cuts” (which I’ll bet a dollar to a donut are mostly postponed increases that do not affect the baseline budget) are parceled out over ten years.
Bottom line - they won’t be real cuts, and they have plenty of time to weasel out of therm.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The ruling class strikes again...
So they’ll blow through the $2.4 trillion in under 2 years in exchange for promises to cut $2.4 trillion over 10 years. Fool me twice... or is this the thrice?
Geeze thats a wooping 240 billion per year !!!
