Skip to comments.Cantor to GOP: Quit whining and vote
Posted on 07/26/2011 9:45:25 AM PDT by free me
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) delivered a blunt message to the Republican Conference Tuesday morning: Quit the grumbling and whining and come together to rally behind Speaker John Boehner to pass his debt ceiling plan.
Cantors heavy rhetoric came out in a closed session at the Capitol Hill Club as the GOP majority tried to whip up support for Boehners latest deficit package. Cantor summed up what he knew many Republicans were thinking as they head into another critical vote.
The debt limit vote sucks, he said, according to an attendee of the closed meeting. But Republicans have three options, Cantor said: risk default, pass Senate Majority Leader Harry Reids (D-Nev.) plan which he thinks gives President Barack Obama a blank check or call the presidents bluff by passing the Boehner plan, which not only cuts deeply into domestic spending but calls for a bipartisan commission to find more savings.

Would we be better off with a default?
>>Cantor to America, The Tea Party and Conservatives: Screw you!<<
I’m with Cantor on this one: Shut up and vote.
Eric Can’t or.
It's going to happen eventually, and the longer we put it off, the worse it will be.
Cantor is truly urging his colleagues to call Obama’s bluff.
Face it: until Nov. 2012, Republicans control only one-half of the two branches of government required to enact legislation. That is one-quarter power.
All they can do is all they can do. Best we can hope for until a new election is damage control. Don’t blast Cantor for speaking the truth.
Shut up and vote NO
Does he mean quit winning and vote?
Are you folks buzzed or something??? Anything written on “Politico” is political spin for America hater/destroyer, POTUS Barack Hussein Obama!!! End of story!!! Believe nothing you read on “Politico”!!!
There is no chance of default. Do you mean would we be better off not raising the debt limit at all?
If so then the answer is yes.
Still I’m happy to go along with the compromise bill passed by the House: Cut,cap&balance.
Too bad Boehner sabotaged it.
1 God stands in the congregation of the mighty; He judges among the gods.
2 How long will you judge unjustly, And show partiality to the wicked? Selah
3 Defend the poor and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and needy.
4 Deliver the poor and needy; Free them from the hand of the wicked.
5 They do not know, nor do they understand; They walk about in darkness; All the foundations of the earth are unstable.
6 I said, You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High.
7 But you shall die like men, And fall like one of the princes.
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; For You shall inherit all nations.
Jeremiah 51:46 Ruler against ruler
Theres a group of people in Washington that are going after the poor. No doubt about it!
Boehner should travel to Afghanistan and tell the women and men defending this country that theyre fighting for the rich, big oil and corporations.
Sodom and Gomorrah were not destroyed because the people were homosexual, they were removed because of how they treated the poor and the stranger.
What was the sin of Sodom?
A collection of classical Jewish texts
Compilation and commentary by Robert Kaiser
With an additional note from Arthur Waskow
Classical Jewish texts concur that God did *not* destroy Sodom and Gemorrah because their inhabitants were homosexual. Not at all. Rather, the cities were destroyed because the inhabitants were nasty, depraved, and uncompromisingly greedy. Classical Jewish writings affirm that the primary crimes of the Sodomites were, among others, terrible and repeated economic crimes, both against each other and to outsiders. Saying "God killed them because they were gay" is, to say the least, not the Jewish teaching on the subject.
Consider the following texts:
At some point something is going to get passed. Boehners’ plan is the best of the three choices. Not raising the debt ceiling gives Obama too much power over what gets paid, when.
Republicans control one part of the government version of a spigot, hose, and nozzle. Without the republican spigot, there is NO water going thru the hose or coming out the nozzle.
Wow! I can’t believe Cantor called Republicans ‘whiners’! Sounds like what the RATS and obamma would be saying! He lost my respect in a big way!!!!!!! Cantor, shut up!!!!!!!!!
” It’s going to happen eventually, and the longer we put it off, the worse it will be. “
At least this way we at least can gain the narrative, deny Obama even the remotest chance at what he would call a victory, and set the stage for larger cuts and greater reform when we gain the Senate and the White House in 2012.
Man, this sucks all of the juju from Zero - see him squirming last night? - it's gonna' get better when he has to sign Boehner's deal.
But vote yes or no?
My question is sincere. I may not have kept up on all the details, but I am still not convinced that there will be a default, unless Obama wants one.
I think the question is do we want a govt shutdown, and its improper to frame the question as one of default. If the question is do I want a govt shutdown (except military and essential functions that can be justified constitutionally), the answer would most definitely yes.
The House has already passed the Ryan budget and CC&B. Either of those are better than the total sham Boehner is putting forward.
Conservative have got to wise up. The Obot press knows they can play you for fools. You all really got to quit believing every little thing they publish. They are NOT on your side.
