    After an internal debate, the Obama administration has decided to tell American commercial airlines to comply with China's demands to be notified of any flights through a broad swath of international airspace that it has claimed as an air defense zone, officials said Friday. Even as the United States continued to send military planes into the zone in defiance of China's declaration, officials said they expected civilian planes to go along with Beijing's new demands out of an abundance of caution. Officials said they were worried about an accident or unintended confrontation that could endanger civilian passengers. The administration’s decision...

    The House of Representatives authorized a suspension of the nation’s debt limit through mid-May, delaying a default on the government’s obligations that would have taken effect in February. The GOP-controlled House voted 285 to 144 to comfortably pass a three-month extension in the government’s borrowing authority just as Senate Democratic leaders suggested they would take up and pass the legislation as soon as they could. The vote early Wednesday afternoon by the House would forestall a default on the national debt. The Treasury Department had warned that the government would exhaust its authority to borrow to finance its existing obligations...
  • The 999 Plan is Out – The 535 Plan is In

    12/22/2011 4:27:08 PM PST · by NoMoreCareerPoliticians · 1 replies
    It’s the old tried and true dirty dealings of our fine feathered friends in Congress. Their back room tactics of using “unanimous consent” in the dead of night to screw Americans will most likely be used to compromise with Obama and the Democrats. Crawford writes to Boehner "We are now in a position that requires all options to be on the table, that requires Republicans to not only demand a willingness to compromise”. That wonderful word “compromise”. For decades we have compromised with the evil ideas Democrats have cast upon Americans. These compromises have marched us right into quicksand. Compromising...

    Bohner's points: 1. Bans Federal Funding of Washington DC Abortions 2. + $8.5 billion in budget cuts -- Democrats wanted 0 dollars. Bohner started at $32b, then TeaParty pushed that $62b. Bohner made + $8.5b better than halfway at $38.5b. Democrats claimed they met Republicans halfway after the $10 billion in cuts that already passed this year were approved. They settled late Friday night at three and a half times more. 3. Bohner blocked additional IRS funding 4. The deal mandates a host of studies and audits of Obama administration policies. Losing points: 1. No votes on defunding NPR/PBS or...

    What Did the Republicans Get With the Budget Agreement? Created 2011-04-09 00:49 Summary: A compromise was reached on the 2011 Budget on Friday night. What did the Republicans gain and what did they lose in compromising with the Democrats? Compromise in itself is a very major problem with Republicans. The Republicans have been compromising with the Left for decades, transforming the United States into a nation that has become progressively more Liberal and has accumulated a national debt greater than $14 trillion. Compromise in itself is a very major problem with Republicans. The Republicans have been compromising with the Left...
