Make it 2000 page bill that no one can read full of spending cuts and kicking out illegals...
Stick to your guns. No significant concessions, no increase in the debt ceiling.
If the government needs some extra cash just start selling scratch tickets.
Remove 87000 irs agents
Remove illegals get phones , housing ,food , ss
Remove all the green crap
Remove all Congress pay increases
Strategy for winding down Ukraine
Remove DEI anything from federal anything or federally funded anything and right of private lawsuit to collect on behalf of government anyone who pushes DEI while receiving federal funds.
Let ‘em have a bake sale if they want more money.
Start asking young people how they plan to pay the debt off and how they are going to deal with the carrying costs which will dominate any budget?
There’s nothing “clean” about the obscene national debt.
Reduce General/Flag Officer ranks by 50%, starting with Thoroughly Modern Milley. The military needs an overhaul, starting at the top.
“Cut a little ... spending”
Get a proportionate debt limit increase.
Repeat, over and over.
Don’t waste time haggling with recalcitrant Democrats, especially Schumer, who has an iron will.
This is what we thought we could make deals on: item 1...item n.
If the Democrats vote on bill 1 for item 1, they will get a debt limit increase of amount 1.
Forget about trying to compose 2000-page bills that will waste months of time and have failed to work.
Think of a reform, put a debt limit increase amount on it, and put it to a vote, and fast, the debt clock is ticking.
A simply yea or nay, up to ten to twenty times a day, on a matching number of bills.
A long journey begins with a step.
Step 1, step 2,...
Bill 1/Vote 1, Bill 2/Vote 2,...Bill 2000/Vote 2000...
Put the bills that don’t pass up for a re-vote in about a month, with a somewhat smaller debt limit increase.
No Omnibus, or No Debt Ceiling, should be the plan.
I’m not seeing the point of a debt ceiling that keeps the ceiling constantly spiraling upward.
Anyone know why the democrats just didn’t increase the debt limit last congress?
“...what I would like to do is sit down with all the leaders, especially the President, and start having the discussion.”...”
give the people a say
By “clean”, Biden means unconditional.
