Skip to comments.White House hardens stance on budget cuts ahead of showdown with Republicans
Posted on 07/25/2013 8:55:37 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Senior White House officials are discussing a budget strategy that could lead to a government shutdown if Republicans continue to demand deeper spending cuts, lawmakers and Democrats familiar with the administrations thinking said Thursday.
The change in tone has been evident in repeated and little- noticed veto threats over the past few weeks by Obama.
The White House is likely to frame any government shutdown as a consequence of Republicans protecting the wealthy at the expense of the nations economy and poor.

Reeling from his over 4 year failure to achieve his stated goal of Fundamentally changing the United States of America, Communist Tyrant B. Hussein Obama has embarked on another expensive road trip to try to sell his Commune-Style power grab of 1/6 th of the US economy by promoting the idea that increased Federal debt is the best way of salvation for the over-taxed Middle Class.
The problem is not with loyal Communist Obama, as he is just doing what his Communist trainers have taught him to do.
The problem lies with the sorry House RINOs who keep John Boehner on as their useless, Commie Obama enabler Speaker.
Nothing is going to help Commie Obama more than to keep John Boehner on as Speaker of the House.
Boehner has repeatedly stated his baseless fear that If the Republicians stand up and oppose Obama we might be blamed by the Liberals for __________________(Fill in the blank).
It is time for the House RINOs to step up to the plate and fight FOR The Republic, and not wallow in the baseless fears of losing the fake prasie of Liberals when a Bi-Partisan Cave-In is finally agreed to.
The reality is that WE would cheer Shutting down the Government, and its non-essential Federal expenditures, or playing politics with Commie Obamas phony scandals such as the Obama coverup of the Benghazi Massacre, or the NSA, or IRS, etc., etc., etc.
Rather than taking the fight TO the enemy, in this case the inexorable attempt to turn our Republic into a Communist State, Boehner has consistently shown that he is not a fighter by running away FROM the enemy.
It is time during Commie Obamas con-artist tour of the remaining Liberal bastions in America for us to demand from our sorry House RINOs that they depose scardy-cat Boehner as Speaker, and install a FIGHTER worthy of our trust in his/her record of defeating Communist Con-Artists such as B. Hussein Obama.
What say all of you?
I vote aye.
The White Hut knows they can scare the crap outta Boner. I predict a cave way before Sept 30.
This is not going to end well for taxpayers(again).
White House hardens
Looks like WaPo has been infected with the Drudge’ Weiner headlines.
Speak yer mind....
The plan is simple: We’ll keep spending and one day we’ll be out of debt. :)
The Republicans have given him everything he wants so far.
why would they stop now?
The longer the feds are “shut down”, the better.
The juggernaut needs to run aground. Its unfathomable as currently configured.
They are actively trying to perversify the military.
It isn’t going over well.
Partial State Control is Socialism.
Those who enable Socialism are Socialist enablers.
Total State Control is Communism.
Those who enable Communism are Communist enablers.
Control of the health and wealth of America by the IRS is Communism.
Those sorry House and Senators who vote to fund Obama’care’ are Communist enablers.
Yup...I'm trying to work a little harder so that the poor that don't work and the economy that's not working will recover...the problem is........I'M NOT WEALTHY YET!
A 40 % annual Federal Government shutdown would get our outgo equal to our income.
I’d prefer a 50 % annual shutdown, because I suspect that they are spending about 10% more than they are admitting to us here in Flyover Country.
With “leaders” like Boehner and Mcconnell why bother??? I expect the Repubicans to give Obama most of what he wants anyway.
In addition, he will blame Mr. George Zimmerman for the slow economy.
I won’t quibble but, yeah...
Shut it down. NOW!
I think fewer and fewer people buy that stale drivel as more and more people are pulling their heads out of their asses.
Personally, I am sick and tired of the freaking "poor".
Bunch of perverts.
