Posted on 12/14/2010 11:37:26 AM PST by ColdOne
Republicans poring over a 1,924-page spending bill proposed by Democrats to cover the rest of the fiscal year are threatening to ground the legislation to a halt, citing hidden earmarks and massive spending that would be enacted into law without a review process.

End of story.
Make a big stink about this Repubs! Put up a fight and do not even think about caving! Read the Bill on the floor. Each repub should take turns reading it not some professional speed reader.
Vote it down! No compromise! No deal! No pork!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
Obama and the Democrats thought they were being so clever - he pretends to compromise and they pretend to be angry about it.
Two words: Bull. Sh!t. I say it was a set-up from the start.
Wait until January 3rd. Let the American people know now: first order of business - the GOP House will vote to make the current tax rates permanent and retroactive to January 1st. Let the Senate leadership think about that over the holidays.
Get on with it, then!
Bump, this is exactly what the GOP promised NOT to do! How quickly they forget why they were elected. No damn better then the Rats.
Kill this dead...why the hell are we even considering a bill drafted by FIRED employees of the people?
YIPEEEE!!! And we thought those closed door meetings working for compromise were the last word and a sweat.
McConnell is in charge of nothing, actually, with Republicans like these willing to step forward. RINO’s OUT!!!!
2012. Be responsible or be gone.
KILL THE BILL!!
Kill it! Democrats are plain evil. It’s not that they don’t get it that regular folks hate the massive spending - the Dems don’t care and are plain a**holes!
They are actually talking about another monstrosity. You are correct though. The tax bill is a monstrosity in itself and deserves the same treatment
We can hope and pray that our side heard our voices in November, but I’m not real optimistic.
kill the bill
The republicans have the power now to stall this thing.
Wait’em out and reintroduce after the 1st.
An excellent question!
That’s what we get when the Rpeublicans CAVE in to the Dems too quickly.
They should have kept haggling on everything for another several days/ weeks.
As it is, we’re screwed, all this ‘brave’ talk of killing it isn’t even worth the sir it takes to say it.
We’ve got a bunch of stupid and weak representatives.
2012 primaries can’t come soon enough.
So are they going to kill it?? Geez I wish they would!!!! There is too much “Support” for this from the likes of BUbba.
Agree 100%. They should do the same thing with extending the current tax rates and not allowing the estate tax to become law.
Kill this Bill....then shut down the U.S. Government. it will be re-opened, one department per appropriation bill at a time.
No more of this omnibus appropriations bills.
Tense inconsistency. Needs reconciliation in chronological sense.
Am I missing something?
If the Republicans delay implementing the funding bill, they will have:
1) Allowed the new Republican house and the much more Republican senate to draft new legislation;
2) Have assured defeat of gays in the military;
3) Have killed the chain-migration DREAM amnesty bill?
4) Have more screws to turn into our weak and embattled President?
Am I missing something?
They all need to just go home, those that can’t come back, and wait for January. Screw ‘em and Obama too.
The Republicans just need to tell the Democrats the American people FIRED you in November.. so we are just going to fillabuster EVERYTHING until January, so you might as well all go home for Christmas!
Looks like there are some signs of spine after all, in Foggy Bottom. :)
Yes, you are missing the absolute corrupt nature of those republicans in DC now.
Angry? Then DO SOMETHING about it. Stop with the lip flappin’ and get busy!
I doubt it. I think they’re chicken sh***.
Unless they have some good plans to take the place of
all this crap, they won’t want to appear stupid and incompetent.
If the R’s will stand firm, that gives them a way to gobble up another three weeks of the rats dwindling time to do damage.
You got it Brother. This was a set up from the word go. We had best walk away from this game quickly. I’m scared Boehner is gonna fall right into this trap. He’s also gonna call it a WIN for the Republicans. Personally I just find this whole deal depressing.
More “bi-partisan moderate” Rino progress out of the Senate. What idiots.
I hate to be the downer here, but I think that there are MANY on this forum that will be severely disappointed with the new Republican majority in the house.
Always remember the cardinal rule of American politics: Corrupt Democrats and Spinless Republicans.
Remember how disappointed we were when we got President Bush elected the second time and the first thing he did was to pass that corrupt Medicare prescription plan, so that he could take the wind out of the Dems sail? He still did it and the Dems are still here.
Dems are the Roll-ers and Repubs are the Roll-ees. That's why we have things like Planned Parenthood killing 50 million babies, govt funding of the ACLU, govt funding of every imaginable kind of environmental project, gay everything and on and on and on.
I mean jeez, how many times we gotta be stabbed in the back by the Snowe's, Collins's, McCain's, Lugars, and other RINO's before people get the message that the enemy isn't always amongst the Dems. If it wasn't for this small cabal we'd get a LOT of our programs passed.
I think that many on this forum are writing checks that the Repubs in congress won't/can't cash.
Maybe we can get rid of some more RINOS and CINOS next round.
Speaking of RINOS...how is Scott Brown doing on this tax debacle?
I think some posters here are confusing the two, or I'm confused all by myself. LOL
