Skip to comments.Support shifts as Boehner adds balanced-budget amendment
Posted on 07/29/2011 9:33:47 AM PDT by Tulsa Ramjet
House Republicans will link passage of a balanced-budget amendment to Speaker John Boehners (R-Ohio) last-ditch debt-ceiling plan, which GOP lawmakers said would move the measure to passage in a high-stakes vote later on Friday.
Republican lawmakers voiced confidence the enhanced bill would pass muster with conservatives, as Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) predicted the balanced-budget amendment change would bring 10 to 20 more GOP members on board.

Not sure where you’re going in KY, but I’m here with access to 2k + acres surrounded by hills. Nice vantage point to see the bastids coming.
Be ready, KY is one of the most over-taxed welfare burdened states in the Union. Your taxes won’t be much lower than WA state, but it is easier to defend.
Welcome to the Blue Grass State!
Americans are fed up.
Beohner can eat sh*t and die (spelling is stupid). I’m so over the GOP. They have to come to us.
Final vote is underway now!
What can they do? We don't have the numbers yet. If we did, we wouldn't be witnessing this soap opera, and our eat-their-own behavior.
Does is matter? They can vote on Frodo winning. I don’t care. I am a hobbit. What ever they do won’t matter. This process is a freaking joke. No one believes what they say. The only thing we’ll believe in is removing the commies in 2012.
Does anyone know the name of the House Dem who has alredy introduced “The Reid plan” in the House?
I heard this in discussion today. I didn’t recognize the name.
Bill has passed 218 to 210.
If you hear who it is on the Dem side of the House that supposedly introduced the “GReed” plan, let me know.
Sens Brown and Murkowski are “open to talk” to Reid. Now the Cow gets her revenge. At least Miller survived the “crash” the night of his primary.
Thanks for posting that with your notes too—very informative and helpful.
Storm knocked out my power. Came back on just in time to see the end of the House vote. What did we get? I see that 22 Pubs voted nay. What ended up being the final version??????
I agree. You’re right on target there.
Just yesterday I was mentioning to someone that I thought there were 240 Republicans in the House. On FoxNews this morning, they confirmed that I hit it right on the nose.
Right now there are 60 Tea Party Caucus members. Unless I’m mistaken those sixty came on board during the 2010 elections.
My point is, that it would only take 120+1 to wrestle control from the old party elites. And then...
Each of those 60 Tea Party members are Republicans. I’d sure love to see a 2012 sweep of the House, to clean up the mess there.
Sixty one or two more should do it. That’s an important goal IMO.
>>KY is one of the most over-taxed welfare burdened states...<<
Yeah, I love my neighbors except for one. He lives in a single wide with his wife and two kids that is like a garbage dump inside. Literally.
He’s very proud that, although his doctor would not vouch for him, he hired a lawyer and after a first denial, was finally awarded disability pay for the rest of his life. and his friend had a five year battle before he got his disability. They live in abject poverty because it’s free.
“The Boehner ammendment specifically states that monies from borrowings do NOT count as revenue.”
“You should maybe check it out.”
Thank You.... That is the best news I have heard in a long time.
Yes sir I know a lot around here like that. I’m in the eastern side of the state. I had to live in trailer for 2 years when we first moved back here, and I have never been so embarrassed in my life. I could get full disability, but I would rather try to work if possible. We are back in a house, and moving back up.
Overall it’s a decent place to live. I miss NC but the tax burden there is worse, and the cost of living is twice as high.
I’ve only gone as far east as somerset. I’ve heard that east of there, if you hear banjo music, you should paddle faster.
A balanced budget amemdment is useless. Fat lot of good it did for California.
