Urgent message to the Tea Party Freshmen and fiscal conservatives: HOLD THE LINE!

HOLD THE LINE!!

They'll have to come back to you. DEMAND a REAL CUT in spending!! Do not under any circumstance approve a debt ceiling increase!! Instead, insist on real spending cuts NOW!! The country is bankrupt. Do not allow them to take us deeper into debt! It's time for the HOUSE to do its job of controlling the spending!

The federal government is bankrupt due to Obama's reckless spending. Cut up his credit cards and force him to quit spending! It's time to put Obama and company into receivership! Make them come to the House to authorize current payments on the debts as they come due so that we don't default. Do not authorize any spending whatsoever on discretionary items until the spending crisis is solved. Pay the obligated social security checks, the military, the interest and the required debt payments, but that's just about it until our fiscal house is in order!

Make no bones about it. We sent you to Washington for one reason and one reason only and that is to take control of our big spending, big taxing problems and get our economy going again so our our people can get back to work!! Do not let the DC ruling class sway you. Do not take your eye off the ball. Do not fail to do your job! Our nation's survival depends upon your vote!!

Tell Boehner to get HIS ass in line!! Cut the damned spending, already!!

Reinforcements are coming in 2012!!

Rebellion is brewing!!

DON'T TREAD ON ME!!

No, because if even this bill cannot pass a worse bill sent over by the Senate is not going to pass.

Read the polls. This is hurting the Dems much worse then it hurts the GOP. People blame Bohner more then Reid or 0, but the difference is statistically insignificant. Bohner is just some jerk from Ohio but Obama is seen as the Leader of the USA. Rightly, or wrongly, the President gets the credit, or the blame, for what ever happens in the Economy.

The Dems, not the GOP need a deal.

If the second Boehner bill is passed out of the House, new information suggests, per local radio, QE3 will be requested within six weeks. So the spending will never end.

Thanks Jim :-)

My Rep is one of them - I have tweeted and gotten several responses from him today. He told me around 3pm he is a FIRM "NO".

And I replied that he has my FULL SUPPORT.

I still worry about a cave in, we didnt get all the RINO's last November. This whole issue is proving to be a perfect LIVE IN FULL COLOR demonstration that our President has zero Leadership skills and it is opening eyes. I want more eyes opened.

Well, yeah, and that’s another huge problem. How do we shutdown the damned fed? These over educated idiots and fools take us from recession to recession to depression to bankruptcy. I don’t think the founders intended for any organization, be it government or private, to (try) to control the economy.

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. - Barack Obama version 2006

agreed! HOW did he get selected ?!?

“Boehner said the same thing before the TARP vote. He said the exact same thing. He wasn’t Speaker then but before the TARP vote in 2000 he said,
“It’s crucial. We’re at a pressure point in the country where we can’t let ideological purity stand in the right thing to do.””

Boehner isn't your enemy.

Two thirds of the federal government is.

Bohener is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

It's my guess that in 2012 the Democrats will take it all because of this fiasco.

Three quarters of Americans listen to sound bites. The MSM will see to it that all blame goes to the GOP.

It's easy to sit home and play quarterback Congressman..... Walk a mile in Boehner's shoes.

“It’s fight them now with our votes or fight them later with powder and ball!”

Are you advocating insurrection and treason against the United States? “powder and ball” Sir, be careful what you write. Your own rules state “violence” is not allowed here. Actually, I don’t think you mean insurrection...I just thought you need a reality check on your rhetoric.

I don’t like the current situation anymore than other here - you can’t spend more than you make; it is insane we are in such debt. In the present situation we don’t have the votes to get EVERYTHING we want. So, compromise is the only option. The key is to get the best end of the deal.

Remember, our government has ALWAYS functioned based upon compromise; from its inception. The Bill of Rights was added as a compromise. Many provisions in the Constitution were added as compromise to get a document that all 13 states could agree to sign. History is replete with examples.

Statesmem know when to draw a hard line and when to bend. We have to bend or we will break. It is EXTREMELY distasteful to have to be the one that says that. I don’t like to compromise.

Like I said before, until the next election increases the number of conservatives in both houses of congress and hopefully the presidency....we are bound by the circumstances we are in.

My full agreement Jim. Americans have to hold the line. To fail is a defeat for our children, our grandchildren, and All Americans. All options other than Cutting Spending and No Raise to the Debt Ceiling have to be held firm. No Compromise. Thus, once more, my full agreement.

Prayerful, yet sensing weakness in the line at the Congressional Level. Praying the Line Will Hold. Everyone should know soon (tomorrow, if not before) ....

Just guessing, but the taxpayers...er....I mean the Tea Party candidates, are holding up the bill. Move more to the taxpayers side, and they may have a deal.

Screw Reid. He would never pass a Republican bill anyway - unless it's a blank check made out to Oboma.

Here is something to ponder:

Americans have heard many times present and past, the word compromise. Americans are told constantly compromise built and was the fundamental building block of the nation at the founding of our nation, and what lead our nation into being. America's beginning was based on compromise. This is what Americans are being told. Quix, I believe the thought of America was founded upon compromise to be a lie to promote subjugation of our population. I believe America came into being because Americans refused to compromise. Americans fought the British to begin this nation. War is not a compromise. Americans met to create a Constitution after not having compromised with Britain. There was a Bill of Rights, the first Ten Amendments to the Constitution because the states being represented refused to compromise otherwise the Constitution would have never been ratified.

Yet there are those who tell us America was founded by compromise. A rewriting of history to make Americans believe compromise is the meaning of America. IMHO ... nothing could be further from the truth .... for God does not compromise, He simply turns away, as America has done until the time when there can be no compromise.

God created America. This nation was founded upon the laws of God. This is what I believe. In the end, God will not compromise and in the end, should God allow America to remain, America will not be allowed to remain, by God, because America compromised.

Just some thoughts of the current events in the present. All thoughts are my thoughts. I claim full responsibility for those thoughts.

I'm Jack and that's the way I see it.

Several dead white guys would most heartily disagree with you:

.. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.   Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.   But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security ..

What would it take? IMHO a further melt down where the RINO's join the Dems and start our version of Austerity. But the Dem's version of Austerity will have massive tax hikes but no lowering of entitlements.

You will have half the population supporting the other and its not sustainable. Then open revolt will happen.

I do not disagree, though I sense the revolt has begun and the live ammo rounds being fired (thus far) are coming from the Great Society and the New World Order. The TEA has held their fire, but have had the nerve to stand and disagree. More power to the TEA for their principled stand in the face of the enemy ... imho

I agree. At this point, Boehner should get "something" through. Reid has already threatened he will change it to "something else" that obama might accept. He will. Then the House conference can change it again to close to what they originally had. The ONE provision they should keep is the one that is driving obama nuts.....the lower increase in the debt ceiling which forces him to possibly revisit this during his reelection process.

Get this new "compromise" passed through the House around 10 pm, Aug. 1. Make the dems' either not pass it, obama veto it, whatever it is they choose.

Boehner has been trying to pass something that will pass muster with the reality of knowing the budget that exists today, MSM, constituents, Tea Party desires. Problem is, obama will only accept his way or the highway. Make the dems/obama decide which way it goes. I see no other way at this point to get anything.

Call his bluff, but do it at the last minute.

Maybe he shouldn't have taken the job in the first place if it's so damned tough. He's turning his back on and threatening the very people who made his position of leadership possible. He's worried ONLY about himself and the corrupt GOP while letting the Nation be damned just so HE can say, “I made a deal.”

...and BTW, Boehner IS my enemy. Him and every one of those career and/or dynastic politicians who lie to and cheat the American taxpayer and call it “public service.” They are scum just like the party apparatchiks on both sides of the aisle.

I’m with you. here is what I wrote on an earlier thread.

“There is no debt crisis that can’t be cured by scaling back our spending.”

And there is not going to be any significant spending cuts with the present admin and senate. We have to look at the big picture. Get a deal that looks reasonable and puts the Dims in a bad light as possible, but keeps the US solvent.

Then get Palin in there with a GOP Senate to turn Washington upside down, including tax reform and the elimination of baseline budgeting. This is our best shot.
