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!!
The House freshmen are holding out and need our support!!
Hold the line!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
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.
Is Boehner in a re-write during this recess to add the CCB language back-in or what......
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.
Is that good or bad?
Plus ALL federal benes to illegals must stop, period.
how is it constitutional, to take money from legal residents, and give it to people here ILLEGALLY ?!?
Excellent Post! I totally agree; however, I don’t realistically see any way to our getting back to providing only for the truly needy...not without a revolution.
Probably bad. Tweaking it to gain votes. HOLD THE LINE!!
Hold that line!
Do not fall back!
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.””
@RepDennisRoss U surviving the ARM TWISTING? I am bummed West caved in. But YOU are MY represenative in DC - Again Sir - YOU HAVE MY SUPPORT
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.
That is just un-frickin-believable...in light of what is going on today.
All Boehner has to do is get a plan that passes the STATES REPRESENTATIVES and forget about NOBAMA.
If the Democrat controlled Senate kills it then we are done with negotiations.
Haven't seen anything from my Rep., (Fortenberry of NE1), but if he caves, we're gonna primary his ass outta there in '12.
We have the ability to elect replacements.
“Its 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.
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.
What the he#* are you talking about
“walk a mile in Boehner’s shoes. “
Maybe Boehner needs to walk a mile in AMERICA’S SHOES
Someone asked me today what it would take for American’s to have another civil war or revolution.
I would say we are screwed
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.
I advocate nothing, just stating the obvious. The American people will stomach only so much tyranny.
HOLD THE LINE!!
Reinforcements are coming!!
.. 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 ..
Zot this clown already, Jim.
You got that right on
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 agree 100%.
“Zot this clown already, Jim.”
Oh, that is so very mature (not). Someone talks like an adult instead of a teenager and you want them zotted.
:You will have half the population supporting the other and its not sustainable. Then open revolt will happen:
Unfortunately I am afraid the riots and revolt may first come from the WELFARE recipients coming to claim their wealth
“Are you advocating insurrection and treason against the United States?”
I think he’s advocating that we save it.
“I advocate nothing, just stating the obvious. The American people will stomach only so much tyranny.”
The nonsense happening in D.C. isn’t tyranny.....it is just stupidity and irresponsible behavior. Hopefully, it will be corrected in 2012.
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
Obama is a wannabee dictator. If the Republicans cave, it’ll be another step in that direction. Especially if they give him a “Super Congress!” Dumb, dumb, dumb!
Hold the line!!
If you cannot donate because of financial reasons, please pray for Freerepublic. Jesus spoke about Treasure in Heaven.
It is my opinion that even Treasure in Heaven will help Freerepublic.com
Jackass McCain is being replayed on CNN (I know, I know, "Communist News Network") now insulting both Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell by name, and the entire Tea Party Movement. Reprehensible.
Hold the Line Tonight.
So, where's Rick Perry in all of this?
I guess I was referring to more of the local guys.
...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.
hold the line.
I’m with you. here is what I wrote on an earlier thread.
There is no debt crisis that cant 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.
