‘WE WILL NOT BACK DOWN’: Rules Committee chair vows House GOP won’t accept ‘bad deal’ from Obama
Daily Caller ^ | Jeff Poor

Posted on 10/11/2013 11:08:06 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

[with AUDIO] House Republicans wouldn’t accept a bad deal on the government shutdown and the pending federal debt ceiling negotiations from President Barack Obama, House Rules Committee chairman Texas Republican Rep. Pete Sessions announced.

“I will tell you we will not back down, but there is much, much that we must understand about what is out there and how to accomplish it,” Sessions said on an interview set to air on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Friday night.

Hewitt asked Sessions about the possibility of a deal made by the first of the month to ensure the government fulfills certain payment obligations, but Sessions said Republicans won’t make a “bad deal” just for the sake of those payments.

“Only if it is a good deal,” Sessions replied. “The House Republicans are not going to agree to a bad deal. And this is no threat. This is reality. House Republicans recognize that the president of the United States has within his wherewithal like he did at the World War II Memorial, like they did at other burial sites, Normandy, other places as well as paying the family members upon the death of their loved one who are soldiers. The president has enormous latitude and he is trying to make this as difficult as he can on us. And shame on anyone that does not do the right thing. We have passed the bills to the Senate. We have given Harry Reid an opportunity to approve them. Normal, common sense operational things should and must be done. They are trying to force our hand.”

“So the question is, will we be for a bad deal just to get people paid?” he continued. “Sorry, that’s their problem. We will not back down.”

The GOP Rino’s talk tough, but cave like sissy’s. Pete Sessions is another
prime example.

‘Most aggressive since Nixon’: Report details Obama’s assault on free press "A brutal report from the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) blasted the Obama administration, calling the White House’s efforts to control information the harshest since the Nixon administration.

The report is something of a first for CPJ, which typically focuses on oppressed journalists in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Written by Leonard Downie Jr., the former editor of The Washington Post, the report contradicts the Obama administration’s insistence that it is “the most transparent administration in history.” ..........."

Sometimes one can only feel sympathy for the stupid RINOs that yearn to believe in obamas promises. It’s like watching Lucy move the footbally EVERY time on Charlie Brown. Only in this case obamas lips are moving and the rest of us know what that means.

Pete's gone native, that's why he's got a primary challenger.

If talk from RINO’s is what makes you feel better, enjoy.
I look for action, not talk.
At the same time Sessions is talking tough, Bonehead, Cantor and
McConnell are surrendering to Obama at the White House.

Pete used to be my Congressman, but that was nearly 10 years ago. Kenny Marchant is now in my district, and he hasn’t strayed yet AFAIK.

They can talk big now all they want, the betrayal is in place. They sent the Senate bill to conference, King is going to side with the Dims to send it to the House floor where the Dims and GOPes will pass it.

Thanks for the tip. I am aware this is the RINO Pete Sessions from
Texas, not the honorable Senator Jeff Sessions from Alabama.

When they begin to declare “we won’t back down!”, that’s your signal that a massive cave in is about to happen.

My guess is that it isn’t about polls, what the media is saying, or sniping from RINOs. It is the Wall Street “money men” who are now insisting that this come to an end.

Pete Sessions (TX) is no Jeff Sessions (AL).

Texas Pete is now officially a Surrender RINO who all despise Cruz, Lee and TEA.

Hold the line, House Reps!! We the people have your backs, There is no “good” deal that involves funding ObamaCare or anything whatsoever that helps Obama advance his “fundamental transformation of America,” ie, taking us from freedom to communism. No jobs-killing, economy-killing, nation-wrecking unconstitutional ObamaCommieCare!! No debt limit hikes!! Obama will spend us into oblivion if you allow him.

Hold the line!! As the elected representatives of we the people, it’s your constitutional right, power and duty!! Do your duty!!

Boner doesn’t need Sessions to pass it through Rules. He can just order it to the floor and pass it with Democrat votes replacing the Tea Party. It’s “for the good of the country” doncha know!

The whole thing is theater. We are ALL being played. The government / congress will do whatever they want, spit in your face & laugh because there's no viable resistance.

They’ve already completely backed down on Obamacare and are only pretty much asking for Obama to sit and ‘negotiate’ with them after fact, aren’t that?

They should call a news conference and say “The president has been true to his word for the first time that we can remember. He refuses to negotiate. So, if he and Harry Reid want the government to default, it’s up to them.” Then walk away.

the rinos do not believe in bammey the boy....I think he is universally hated....

but the Blight House and the Senate and all of the media....even Fox....are protecting the faker in chief and his so called policies....

I'd rather have a straight shooter like Cruz or Rand or Lee etc....

we are in dark, dark times....could have been avoided if people voted Romney, but alas, they didn't.... if this doesn't get settled, bammey the boy will just enact laws and the media will protect him and the Senate will not vote for impeachment....

Do not accept anything but removal of that healthcare act, huge cuts in government spending to avoid raising debt ceiling, elimination of some Federal agencies, elimination of duplicate duties and punishment of all Federal employees who mistreated people while government was shut down.
