Skip to comments.House vote pulled, chaos continues
Posted on 10/15/2013 4:35:43 PM PDT by smokingfrog
House Republicans are in trouble.
GOP leadership pulled their bill to open the government and lift the debt ceiling because they didnt have the votes to squeeze it through the chamber.
There will be no vote Tuesday, which means Washington will have one day to lift the debt ceiling before the U.S. government reaches its borrowing limit.
Its unclear what Speaker John Boehners team will do next. This could, once again, sideline the House and kick action over to negotiations between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). The U.S. government reaches its debt limit on Thursday and the government has been shut down for more than two weeks.
The bill that was pulled because of flagging support wouldve reopened the government until Dec. 15, lifted the debt ceiling until Feb. 7, while forcing everyone from the president to Capitol Hill staffers to pay more for their health insurance.

Good, shut it down...
I’d say that’s why .... people like us keep saying, let Rome fall
“republicans are in trouble”
god, I hope this whole thing collapses and all those good for nothing, fake journalists get arrested.
Why? They're doing the right thing. More and more people are slowly finding out what's in obomacare, and they're freaking out. They're waking up to what the left wing freeloaders are costing them.
I'd say the Republicans have it made as long as they don't cave and screw it up.
What a waste of pizza!
This chaos concerning federal government funding is probably nowhere near the chaos that former Speaker Pelosi irresponsibly put the House through when she rammed Obamacare.
I love the smell of chaos in Washington
Is that angry black former law instructor going to get on television and lecture us again about evil Republicans harshing his choom buzz?
Is this illegal, unconstitutional, monstrosity called the Federal Government worth saving?
Let it burn to the ground.
No, the RINO GOPe is in trouble. But I doubt Politico can tell the difference.....
I want to see if O-sh7tstain has the guts to default
A must read:
Rep. McClintock (R-CA) breaks down the debt crisis
I’ll take chaos over bipartisanship. Obamacare was passed by rebels and will only be defeated by rebels. Put Ted back in the game. Let him speak for the GOP.
I’d say harry and his trained muzzie are in trouble!
We all would have been in trouble if they'd voted for this thing.
Boehner didn’t offer conservatives ANYTHING!
The Vitter amendment is PR nonsense- and it would create an appearance of “shared sacrifice” for the ‘elite’ if it went into effect anyway.
Only hope I can see is that Boehner is setting Mitch up to be a hero to help his reelection chances.
But who can imagine Mitch being William Wallace? ... which is what he’d have to do.
RINOs may be in trouble.
Conservatives are not.
Die, RINOs, die.
Chaos there means less chaos they can reap on us.
-— Good, shut it down... ——
Hip. Somehow we’re surviving.
History always points to the president. History doesn't care who's in charge of the house or senate at the time. For example: who was in charge of the house and senate during the failed Carter presidency? Who was during the FDR presidency?
Oboma will be blamed for everything that goes right or wrong in the end. The buck will always stop with him. The next generation will see oboma as the one who crashed the global economy, because his own ego was more important than the people of the world.
Frankly the whole bunch of them can open brawl over what brand of pencil to use for the next umpteen years. The more they fight amongst themselves, the less tyranny they can visit upon us.
The rinos don't understand this. All they hear is the liberal media. Thank God for the Tea Party Pubs! They get it, there are some hills worth fighting on and even dying on if necessary.
The media and Rats with all their vitriol and lies can try and make the Pubs look bad, but people are starting to find out from their friends and neighbors whats happening.
My insurance was cancelled because it doesn't fit obamacare guidelines. A plan from Blue Cross that is similar is almost double the cost.
When the 2014 elections role around the Pubs will have quotes from reid not caring about children with cancer and insisting that Congress and the President be exempted from obamacare. If this type of tyrannical arrogance doesn't disgust people nothing will.
The rats are in trouble.
If the debt ceiling isn’t raised (not saying I want it to) then the rats and their media can holler till doomsdays its the faults of Republicans but Obama will OWN it.
Obama will be the first DEFAULT pres. How sweet it is.
My guess is there will still be a sunrise and a sunset....Let the govt go broke.
History always points to the president. History doesn’t care who’s in charge of the house or senate at the time
The keyan doesn’t care about that kind of thing. His goal is to create the template for an authoritarian leftist POTUS to rule.
The Kenyan has always been willing to use the nuclear option, and that’s not just a metaphor.
Your teenager begs you to pay off his credit card, you do it only to see him run it up again and again. At some point you have to be a parent and say....NO.
Let CNN/ABC/CBS/NBC/MSNBC/NYTIMES/WAPO and every organ of state controlled media come after our conservative terrorists, anarchists, insane xenophobic, homephobic, confederate right-wing haters....
and all that needs to be said is.....
“THE FUNDS ARE HERE AND THERE AND EVERYWHERE BUT NOT FOR ODUMBOCARE”.
Now the Senate is going to try and jam something down the House’s throat. Pubs need to stay firm on this.
Damn straight. Who was speaker during Hoover? Nobody remembers. If Obama pulls the self-destruct button, he will forever be a failure. My fear is that he doesn’t care. All part of the master plan.
In trouble with who, Politico? With your liberal buddies?
“Republicans” are in trouble??
Seems to me that Republicans, especially in the House, have been the only responsible ones in this whole debacle.
Cutting spending, trying to stop the federal takeover of health care, and working to stem government growth is a GOOD thing.
The REPUBLIC is in trouble because of the Democrat operatives and their fascist mindset.
Whaaaat!? Are you serious?? 17% of the Federal Leviathan will still remain closed?! What will we do?! The sky is falling, the sky is falling!
Sarc. Sarc. Sarc.
Shut it down. It’s the only way to ensure spending cuts. Start with the White House.
"We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, What is our policy? I will say; "It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy." You ask, What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory - victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival."
Winston Churchill - May 13, 1940 in his first address as the newly appointed Prime Minister.
“Somehow were surviving.”
According to the Communist News Network (CNN)and their inbred cousins at PMSNBC, the apocalypse is upon us.
Just like with the sequester non-event, no one will notice.
Tsar Bozok wants this to collapse the system and abandon the Consitution....look for a doggy wag tomorrow to really screw things up...just sayin.
NRO’s the Corner has become a pathetic respite for RINOs. They act as if the sky is falling over there because the House did not pass a bill.
House Republicans are in trouble?
(Betcha 93% of Americans couldn't tell you who was Speaker of the House during 12 of the last 17 gov't shutdowns. And I betcha Obama doesn't want to go into the history books known as the first President to lead the US into default.)
in trouble?...hardly....let the ratfinks go squirl themselves....
Burn, baby, burn.
Every ones health care premiums sky rocketed. The democrats in the house and senate must be freaking out, because the voters who work for a living sure are!!
That’s what a lot of people don’t get. We’re the parents. Bible passages about obeying rulers applies to the government, not us. We’ve got things all messed up because we’re not demanding submission. It’s like a family where the kids rule the home.
-— My fear is that he doesnt care. -—
He cares. He wants destruction. It will bring about the glorious Revolution.
I’m hoping that the rest of the Rats will abandon him.
Exactly what Levin has been saying..
