WASHINGTON Congressional Republicans conceded defeat on Wednesday in their bitter budget fight with President Obama over the new health care law as the House and Senate approved last-minute legislation ending a disruptive 16-day government shutdown and extending federal borrowing power to avert a financial default with potentially worldwide economic repercussions.
With the Treasury Department warning that it could run out of money to pay national obligations within a day, the Senate voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday evening, 81 to 18, to approve a proposal hammered out by the chambers Republican and Democratic leaders after the House on Tuesday was unable to move forward with any resolution. The House followed suit a few hours later, voting 285 to 144 to approve the Senate plan, which would fund the government through Jan. 15 and raise the debt limit through Feb. 7.
It isn’t that I give a rats ass for the RINO, it is pulling the lever for a D. It takes a lot of stomach to do that.
Heck, at least those women are, ahem... "working" for a living and like it or not, they provide a service to a certain segment if society.
McConnell and his fellow RINOs ph*ck us and WE have to pay for it.
I think you are right.
The most important thing for our country RIGHT NOW is to put the fear of the ballot box into the RINOs’ hearts.
Vote them out - with your whole vote - then we either rebuild, or forsake and build a new party.
BTW - locally if you vote for a RINO you are just populating the farm teams with RINOs.
They always do, don’t they? All Republicans fight are Conservatives, and they eagerly do that.
“Technically there is no communism; its a false bait to try to get people to fall for totalitarian socialism, which was supposed to be the middle step between capitalism and communism.”
Actually, the governing and economic model is Moussolini’s fascism.
Wow! I know Webster (FL), or thought I did.
Communists are just Fascists with less snappy uniforms.
Duncan - Nay
Gowdy - Nay
Mulvaney - Nay
Rice - Nay
Sanford - Nay
Wilson - Nay
Clyburn - Yea
You must forgive Clyburn. He is South Carolina's token RAT Representative.

Close hell! It is right now in everything but name.
While I said I’d probably rather have a Dem than a RINO(for the purposes of rhetorical clarity), I never said I’d vote for a Dem. I’m just at the point where I won’t vote for a known RINO either.
Like I said on another thread, at least with a conservative 3rd party I’d have a party that I can support.
Communists are Fascists with machine guns.
I hope it is only purgatory.
That will pass and the United States of America can be officially pronounced dead.
He had hands of 4 aces with the joker to boot and he folded each time.
Rats lying, caught in lies, nothing done.
Fast and Furious and the IRS investigations are jokes, bluster with no results.
He ain't one of us.
F’n spineless Republicans.
I do not like that Cotton guy running against Pryor in Ark. If runs he will lose because of this vote. He was for Syria too. Unreliable.
