Skip to comments.The budget deal passed in the senate
Posted on 12/31/2012 11:12:25 PM PST by null and void
Just announced on KKSF 910
Eight voted no—one was Rubio don’t know the others yet...
Eight out of 100? We are sooooooooooooo screwed.
Just heard Rand Paul and Dick Shelby voted no.
Let me know if you aor ANYBODY hears how Collins, Snowe or McCain voted.
Guy on Fox said a few liberal democrats voted no as well. I’ve yet to see a roll call.
No’ votes: 3 Ds (Bennet, Cardin, Harkin); 5 Rs (Grassley, Lee, Paul, Rubio, Shelby)
Well yeah. The Senate is the Supreme Soviet to the WH’s Politburo . . .
Folks, this bill is a good start. Many more bills will be coming, this is just the first. The house needs to amend it with winning proposals to divide the Rats and stop the spending, but they have to be proposals with broad public support. End child tax deductions for illegals, and no pay raises for Govt employees - those things will divide the RATs but bring the public to our side - I hope the Pubbies on the House are smart enough to play the game.
PS - stay away from SS - losing issue, unless you restrict it to people in country minimum of 10 years.
have to count on the 50 or so TEA Party in the House now.
2014 GOP primaries are gonna be open season on RINOs I guarantee.
Reporter on Fox said this was just a 2 month extension, and that all of this will have to be done again in a few weeks.
Wow, just when a little over half the country is watching New Year’s on TV!! I bet the GOP will never learn to play a crisis like that!
That’s not quite as bad, I guess.
Not all of it, but the spending will need to be re-authorized. This is where the House needs to be clever. Find ways to cut spending the RATs hate but the public loves. This is how the game needs to be played.
Of those eight I wonder how many did it for politics and how many did it out of principle.
That’s nice. Spending comes from the House. F*ck what the Senate wants.
Meaning that this vote is 100% meaningless since the next congress can make whatever they pass retroactive, as congresses have done in the past. I hope the House just punts and goes home until the next congress takes over. But then I guess the African communist Ubama and the rat newsrooms would blame the Republicans for sending America over the "fiscal cliff".
“PS - stay away from SS - losing issue, unless you restrict it to people in country minimum of 10 years.”
Screw the young! We got ours!
