2,009-Page, $1,205,146,000,000 Republican Spending Deal Allows Funding of Planned Parenthood
CNS ^ | December 16, 2015 | Terence P. Jeffrey

The 2,009 page fiscal 2016 spending deal that the Republican House leadership released today authorizes $1,205,146,000,000 in federal outlays between now and the end of fiscal 2016, according to the Congressional Budget Office, and it does not prohibit funding of Planned Parenthood, according to the House Appropriations Committee.

The spending bill is paired with a separate 233-page tax bill.

“We are maintaining all of our pro-life protections, including the Hyde Amendment, and we are making cuts to the UNFPA program,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said of the omnibus spending bill at a press conference today.

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s top abortion provider. In its latest annual report (2013-2014), it said that it did 327,653 abortions in fiscal 2013 (which ended on Sept. 30, 2013), and that in the year that ended on June 30, 2014, it received $528.4 million in government health services grants and reimbursements.

“Look in divided government, you don’t get everything that you want,” Ryan said at his press conference. “Republicans didn’t get all that we wanted. Democrats didn’t get all that they wanted. This is a bipartisan compromise. It is a bicameral compromise. And I understand that some people don’t like some of the aspects of this. But that is the compromise that we have. And I do believe that we will have bipartisan votes on both of these bills.”

In its analysis of H.R. 2029—“The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016”—the CBO said that changes in law that will be made by the bill will have the net effect of increasing the federal deficit by $57.6 billion in the ten-year period from fiscal 2016 through fiscal 2025.

I’m betting that somewhere in the fine print that veterans get to carry the burden before others.

IIRC, this bill goes to Sep of 2016, just in time to claim there can’t be any action because of the election.

Traitors to the babies. Traitors to equal protection, due process, and the rule of law. Traitors to the moral principles of the Declaration of Independence. Traitors to every stated purpose of the U.S. Constitution, and its explicit, imperative requirements. Traitors to their own oaths of office. Traitors to Posterity.

written with numerals, it almost seems like a joke number.

Not for real. Something to laugh about 50 years ago.

incredible.

1.2 Trillion for the next 9 months. That’s 400 billion a quarter.

First of all, what has Nancy said about what she gave up?

Second, I can just hear Ryan begging “Please, Nancy. You gotta’ give me something.”

“....and it does not prohibit funding of Planned Parenthood....”

This country deserves to fail.

Everyone who voted for Ryan should be voted out. Even if it means giving the seat to a democrat. They need to be punished!

As mentioned in a related thread, patriots should be fully confident that the spending bill is totally compliant with Congresss constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers. / sarc
”Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States.” - Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.

In fact, based on the Courts statement above, here is a rough approximation of how much taxpayers should be paying Congress annually to perform its Section 8-limited power duties.

Given that the plurality of clauses in Section 8 deal with defense, and given that the Department of Defense budget for 2015 was $500+ billion, I will generously round up the $500+ billion figure to $1 trillion (but probably much less) as the annual price tag of the federal government to the taxpayers.

In other words, the corrupt media, including Obama guard dog Fx News, should not be reporting multi-trillion annual federal budgets without mentioning the Supreme Courts clarification of Congresss limited power to appropriate taxes in budget discussions.

Remember in November!

When patriots elect Trump, or whatever conservative they elect, they need to also elect a new, state sovereignty-respecting Congress that will work within its Section 8-limited powers to support the new president.

Also consider that such a Congress would probably be more willing to fire Constitution-ignoring activist justices.

Funds Planned Parenthood.
Puts $5 billion into the Green Energy slush fund as the first baksheesh to the UN Climate Change mafia.
Continues to bankroll NPR, the National Endowment for the Arts, and other blasphemous trolls.

What's not to like?

Thanks for nothing Ryan.

There are so many politicians to throw out and replace with non-politician private citizens. They too can become corrupt so the long-term answer is for the American People to make it politically profitable to do the right thing (CUT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and KEEP IT WITHIN ITS CONSTITUTIONAL LIMITS) and politically unprofitable to do the wrong thing (line their own pockets, letting bureaucratic self interest trump America’s interests).
