Posted on 01/01/2013 6:16:59 AM PST by Cheerio
Were extremely disappointed. There was no need for this drama on New Years Ever because the House completed its work last August, said Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) [This] is a cynical attempt on the part of the President to ensure that he has complete Democrat control, House of Representatives and Senate, in the final term.

Why so cynical? Of course he'll leave it.
Although, not necessarily the way he found it...
The drama was unnecessary because we all knew the Republicans would cave like they always do
And for all the good it will do, I’ll be contacting Chambliss and Isaccson to let them know I’ll be fighting against their re-elections with my las dying breath.
Ms. Bachmann, the supposedly “dumb”, “crazy” conservative, is correct again.
frustration doesn’t begin to describe my feelings at the betrayal by Senate Republicans.
What can we do?
Tax rates are not a policy issue. Repeat after me: TAX RATES ARE NOT A POLICY ISSUE.
The policy issue is SPENDING, or, more broadly, the size of the Federal government.
Tax rates are the derivative of the policy issue.
The Republicans (the ones who can get themselves elected, anyway) now stand exposed as complete fraudsters, because they SUPPORT a $3 trillion+ Federal government (in fact, their desired spending is only a little less than Obama's), while making a moral issue out of collecting only slightly more than $2 trillion in revenue.
This is ass-backwards. IF the GOP believes that collecting no more that $2.2 trillion in taxes is their central, moral issue, THEN THEY MUST PROPOSE A $2.2 TRILLION (or less) BUDGET. They can't do this, because they either believe in a $3+++ trillion Federal government or know that if they advocated for a $1.6 trillion cut they would lose their precious jobs.
Oddly, Obama is the consistent one here - he wants a $4 trillion state, and wants the rich to be plundered to pay for it.
The poor stupid Republicans have no spending policy, no size of the state policy, no serious cuts to propose, and they are trying to substitute taxation as a policy - but it's not working anymore.
That picture would make an EXCELLENT billboards.
That picture would make an EXCELLENT billboard.
Represenative government is a failure.
Government itself is a failure.
when a person gives another person power, that power will be abused.
That is all.
There is no remedy at the ballot box anymore. That is over. By thinking that there is, we just kick the can down the road for 4 more years. That should be obvious to all of us now.
Sitting around waiting for the next election cycle is a joke.
Lindseed Graham has chimed in now telling the House to pass the Senate Fiscal fiasco and save their powder for the debt ceiling battle.
I laughed my butt off. What powder? The DC GOP are just powderless powder puffs. Just wait for “the big debt ceiling battle”. Then we will be told to save your powder for the “gun grab battle”.
We all know how that will work out. LOL
“And for all the good it will do, Ill be contacting Chambliss and Isaccson to let them know Ill be fighting against their re-elections with my las dying breath”
Don’t waste your time. I have tried to flog those two RINO POS’s for years into doing the right thing. They never saw a libtard sellout they didn’t love. We are going to primary Saxby in 2014.
“We are going to primary Saxby in 2014.”
Tom Price? Who?
I doubt revenues will increase, but that’s never been the point. It’s all about punishing the productive class and making people dependent and slaves of the Leviathan. And when revenues remain flat or lower, the solution will be to beef up the IRS even further. That’s why they’ve got all those extra rounds and agents. A couple of IRS agents get killed, and it’s gun confiscation and martial law, baby.
This year is going to be brutal. Economic collapse and armed resistance are just around the corner.
Trying to remember all the times that the media mentioned that the House passed a spending bill in August ...
Why, I can't remember a single time!
