Reid is going to take Boneheads bill, water it down and send it back over to the house.

Don't you think Reid will do that with whatever is sent over?

It is very apparent that if Congress cannot hold the line than we American People must do so. We have a call to arms and must stand strong and take this country back. That means telling these prople they either do the will of their constituents OR THEY ARE DONE. It begins and ends with WE THE PEOPLE.

If they want to see the might and will of America, then keep playing with us and suffer the consequences of defeat.

And if the Pan Marxist-Leninist Kenyan Imposter at 1600 calls ANY GOP CONGRESSIONAL LEADERSHIP down to the White House (an act of intimidation and capitulation) into the Oval Office, then they had better refuse it and find something else to do, like crossword puzzles or hair perms up on The Hill Friday and the Weekend. Be on the extra close lookout for Obongo's moves tomorrow, either political, PR and extra-Constitutional.

He brought this whole enchilada about what with his reckless Socialism over the last nearly three years.

Looks to me like he hasn't actually compromised on one dang thing considering the senate has vowed to kill his plan on arrival.

Should have adjourned the House right after CC&B (though even that was smoke and mirrors) and let the Rats be the party of NO! Threatening to zero out a district because the member doesn't agree with him is far from leadership.

“I don’t remember being so ashamed of the Republican party in a long time... the lack of any respect for others, like John Boehner, is appalling.”

****

Bonehead was selected as Speaker. He is not a king, omnipotent, or infallible. Enjoy being an “Independent.” Maybe you can get someone from the media to like you. Of course, your more prudent strategy would be to stay a Republican and simply attack Tea Partiers. That will win the hearts and minds of those dearest to you.

There is and has never been anything to negotiate. The Lead Rat has never put anything on the table to negotiate with. Pubs need to walk away from negotiating against their own plans.Negotiations begin when both sides have a plan/deal memo to work from Business 101....geez these people are all incompetent.

If a potential client of my business says let’s make a deal, we ask for their business plan and respond accordingly. If they don’t we don’t have a position to move forward with. Simple enough, isn’t it?

Yes, it was the Tea Party calling Republicans Hobbits. Soooo disrespectful right? Or telling them to get their “asses” in line...oh wait...!!!

For the record...Tea party members are responsible for the rise in Independent affiliation. They are ex-conservatives from the GOP tht promised to hold the GOP accountable. You clearly don’t have a clue. WE never agreed to serve Boehner. He was supposed to serve us. I don’t trust they won’t pass something this weekend but if Boehner emerges embarrassed and the fissure between us and the party grows...damn fine by me.The last thing I want is to be corrupted again by the crooks and liars in the party.

There you go. I so agree with your posts. CCB was tabled but it is intact and can be debated over lunch and passed. The House should have beat that vehicle all the way home, but instead dutifully went to work trying to please marxists. Now that’s the real laugh.

We are on the same page, I think we should still stand for doing the right things but in reality there is a major crash/depression on its way. The question is how do we handle it with a police state of with people once again returning to Gad, Morals and hard work.

Of course one step in that process will be to get ride of the Washington crowd and holding them accountable for the lies and games.

Put on the seat belt this is going to be a ruff ride.

Yeah. So much for that insistence that bills be posted for X amount of time before being voted on. They’ll stick to principle, when it’s expedient.

They are going "Y-2K" on this now, the driveby media. Ending stories with scare-liners like "we are now 5 days, 4 hours and 58 minutes away from US default".

Heard this on one of the national radio networks just now at the top of the hour, ABC (Always Bastard Communists) Radio I believe. Trying to scare the American People when the REAL SCARE will be when we have absolutely NO FEDERAL MONEY IN THE NATIONAL TREASURY TO REPEL A RED CHINA ASSAULT ON TAIWAN AND/OR JAPAN.

You see u thought that when Bonehead sent this bill over it was a done deal and in Reid’s court. Yes and no. Reid does not have a plan. will use many parts of Boneheads bill.

I have noticed your support of CCB Bill.
Why did Bonehead just leave the CCB in Reids court?
The RATS are about to play Bonehead. What’s Bonehead gonna do when that watered down version goes back to the house?
How is Bonehead gonna win the PR war then? Bonehead is about to
be played.

You have exactly the right idea!!!
This is the time to force this issue.
Attach the total, complete repeal of the tyrannical ObamaCare legislation to everything. I would even be willing to trade a modest (very modest I should say) debt ceiling increase for the complete repeal of every sentence, word and punctuation mark of the ObamaCare bill.

JUST DO IT HOUSE REPUBLICANS!!!

The major crash/depression is coming anyway, no matter how RINO’s compromise with marxists. It’s simply too late. We can however not get side tracked away from the simple arithmetic recognized by most of the Tea Party caucus. You can’t run from the math. I was sure shocked to see West caved when I thought he would be one of the last to fall.

I agree. Boehner needs to be replaced ASAP. I hope Rush, Levin, and Hannity start pushing for that tomorrow. Nothing says we can’t do it in the middle of a session. Boehner has proven himself to be totally ineffectual. We need someone competent in there.

It’s too late for any other ploys.Reid will develop a bill,pass it,and dare Republicans to vote against it.The idea that the Tea Party could force a 40% reduction in spending by halting the debt ceiling was not even a chimera.It was a fantasy. They didn’t understand that or more probably didn’t care.The GOP is fractured and may not be reparable. One thing is true. The Dems will spend every dime of the new ceiling and the 47% who pay no tax will love it and enough progressives are taxpayers to claim a majority for years. Tonight may see Carville’s prediction of a 40 year reign of power come true.

Is everyone forgetting the 14T debt we’re paying interest on?

CCB means deadbeat Congress isn’t planning on paying off the debt they rang up?

Pay it or be evicted.

The Dems and RINOs need the debt deal. They purchase their constituents. Conservatives earn their’s.

Bachmann actually voted against CCB so I don’t think she’d do something like that. She said she’d only vote to increase the debt ceiling if it was coupled with a repeal of the health care law.

Was priceless hearing him scream into the mic “We ARE BROKE!” backed up with useful facts about our current financial circle j*^#. Lot of spirit to his show!

If Boehner can’t get anything passed the GOP in the Senate won’t have the balls to filibuster. The RINOs in the Senate will vote to end debate and then vote against the bill. It will pass.
