1,600 Page CR Omnibus Spending Bill Passes House…

The last federal budget was signed into law September 2007 by President Bush. Since then the past 7 fiscal years have been funded under continuing resolution bills.

In a sane world the Republicans would have only funded Fiscal Year 2015 through April, and taken the position of waiting to see President Obama’s budget proposal for FY 2016 which is due in February. (President Obama has never met a statutorily required budget submission deadline). Alas, another year funded by CR.

obama_delivers budget_Via Politico – In a big win for House Republicans and President Barack Obama, the House passed a $1 trillion-plus funding bill Thursday night that will keep the government open into next year.

The final vote, which came after a high drama day of behind the scenes arm twisting and vote counting, was 219 to 206.

The Senate passed a two-day funding bill following the House vote, avoiding a government shutdown starting at midnight Thursday. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), however, warned that the “cromnibus,” as the massive spending package has come to be called on Capitol Hill, may not pass the Senate until Monday.

After a lobbying blitz by Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and other White House officials, dozens of House Democrats broke with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and backed the legislation, despite controversial provisions on Wall Street and campaign finance.

Thursday’s results were a major blow to Pelosi, who had led Democrats in hours long closed-door meeting where they bashed the bill and counted on its defeat to help her recover politically f0llowing the Democratic debacle on Election Day.

But 57 Democrats crossed the aisle to vote with 162 Republicans to help pass the measure, undermining Pelosi’s hardline stance.

In a major split with Pelosi – the second such public division in recent weeks – Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) backed the legislation. Hoyer quietly lobbied other Democratic moderates and Appropriations Committee members to line up behind the bill, and in the end, he proved to Republicans, Senate Democrats, and the White House that he could deliver the votes, at least in this case.

    Whew. Now let the fun begin. The loot is split up and we can all breathe. Several congresscritters were seen with hands up in Boners office begging don’t shoot. Now they can get to the fave congressional past time, gum flapping, for a whole year. The stupid voters will forget all about it in two years anyway, just ask Gruber. If you like your debt, well you can keep your debt. Plus there was not even a smidgeon of corruption in the bill. Another fine job by the GOP Leadership and their partner, The Dear Leader. The GOP could never have done it without his help. Bi-Partisan action at its best.

      Well, at least now that Repubs have completely folded, next year they’ll have plenty of free time to pass into law the exact comprehensive immigration reform Obama royally decreed, grease their palms with lobbyist money, raise funds for 2016, and get back to campaigning for reelection so they can screw us for 4 years straight.

      I don’t know about y’all, but I think the last 5 weeks was a great run for conservatism. Yeah, it was all talk and no action, but I still get a little warm and fuzzy thinking about it.

        On a slightly different take, let’s say my wife’s job, 8 hours a day, 365 days a year was to spend a million dollars an HOUR. Spending 8-million dollars a day without a break it would take her about 1230 years to burn through a trillion dollars. Congress, spending (by hour count) far less time than that on the job can do that in one year.

        Oh wait, my wife’s calling me….one minute. “No honey, I don’t know where your resume’ is..”

    The problem is that the Republican “leadership” is stupid that way. If Boehner can be replaced come January, then that’s what needs to happen, otherwise 2016 is not going to be a banner year for the Republican Party.

      When will America even begin to pay down the national debt, which as of now is around $18 trillion? With interest payments being anywhere from $350B to over $700B per year, Obama and everyone in Congress that allowed this debt to be established has royally screwed America. The recent election results were a message by the American people to stop this madness, stop Obamacare, and stop amnesty. Boehner screwed us again, and will continue to screw us until he’s removed. It’s bad enough to have Obama and the liberal democrat scum to fight against, but when the leader of the House works against conservative values, America can not win.

      From what I’ve read since the November election, the general consensus among the hill observers appears to be that Boehner will NOT have any problems with getting re-elected as Speaker of the House. He’s already filled up other power positions (specifically the Whip, the Majority Leader) with people willing to do his bidding, even though at the beginning they might have seemed to actually possess a bit of a backbone. The same is true in the Senate – we were hoping McConnell might not even survive the election, but instead he’s back, and apparently as secure in his top dog position as one could ever hope for. We heard a lot of new incoming senators, while in campaign mode, promise to ‘get Mitch McConnell out of the leader’s seat, but there is no way this will actually happen. There is too much quid pro quo in DC, too much co-dependence, too much allegiance based on prior bad acts, for a successful revolt against the party line. And the incoming ‘ -elects’ are nowhere near powerful enough, connected enough or numerous enough to pull if off. Maybe in the next couple of years they could try, but for now, the RINO old guard is entrenched beyond any hope of eviction.
      I am still smarting from Mitch McConnell voting with the son of the devil Harry Reid and the Dems, and clearly following Obama’s orders, to ‘re-open the government after Reps shut it down’ in Dec 2013 and getting handsomely rewarded for it. Reid inserted the $3 Billion pork earmark in the bill about 1 hour (IIRC) before the vote, nobody read it, and it singled out McConnell as THE ONLY earmark in that bill. The payback was as obvious as his denials were hollow and ridiculous.
      These people have no more shame, no more morals, no more sense of right and wrong. All they know is which side their bread is buttered on.
      That’s why – contrary to all my hopes after the November slug fest – the Congressional Reps are going to keep from rocking the boat, go on just getting along, and spend the next two years ‘just waiting for the next Rep president’, which by itself, like magic, will just fix everything that is wrong with this country, don’t you know.
      I think we can safely say that the RINOs are going to do everything they can to separate, estrange, and immobilize the young guard the swept this election to victory for us, and protect the status quo for as long as possible while calling press conferences, complaining about Obama and his illegal ways, decrying his imperial powers, and only paying lip service to all of us. After all, they are happy with the way things worked out – they are still at the troth, and their beating boy is still conveniently there to blame. They will be using the mirror image of Obama’s own strategy, keeping themselves and their states in pork, and we will all be paying the consequences of not just their treacherous inaction but their intentional and fully conscious fleecing of America.

      Ouch! Why the hurry? Driven by fear? Didn’t the republicans sweep the last major election nationally?

      When will there be a “serious punch to the gut” given to “Obama the Destroyer” by these wussies? I guess by definition a wussie never fights back, no matter how many are cheering him/her on.

      Note how the females in our government have had a serious “impact” on the daily lives of the average American. Leaves me to think of the “husband and wife” model of behavior where in this marriage conflict never ends.

      Time for the Ladies Home Journal column “Can this Marriage be Saved” to visit Washington and see what the problems may be and if there might be some real solutions.

      Only, I doubt the participants will even consider such advice.

      Obama is a political bully and like all bullies he needs to be confronted. Amazing how no one has figured that out. Someone needs to make this “personal” in a very direct way.

      Me, I like Trey Gowdy. I think he just might make a fine Speaker of the House. I also like Ted Cruz as Majority Leader of the Senate. Not that they are mistake proof, but they both show a serious determination to love America and the Constitution that made it this way–not recently, but in it’s history of conception where the “People” come first, not the political ruling class.

      Oh…Mittens is a wussie outside of the boardroom. He proved that during the last presidential run when he had Obama against the ropes. Now, he is rethinking his statement not to run again!

      Perhaps these “know it alls” should take a serious look at what Bruce Jenner has been doing to his person. Recall his image on the Wheaties package years ago…

    • Bill in Lexington,NC says:

      Thanks. I am a single issue voter. Adherence to the Constitution is my guidline in casting my ballot and spending my money. Binding me and my descendents with an unpayable debt does nothing to assist the cause of liberty and funding an ever larger federal role in private lives actively works against it.

      People don’t need handouts … they need jobs. The government doesn’t need to “create” jobs … they just need to stop passing legislation such as NAFTA which makes it easy (and profitable) to ship our manufacturing jobs to foreign countries. Closing our borders is important, too … but not because of the number of Mexicans slipping across it — because of the number of jihadists entering with them. We need to increase the number of legal entries AND zip both borders (the northern one, too) tighter than an ugly virgin fruit fly with no brothers. The borders need to go from “risky” to cross to “deadly” … with no apologies to anyone.

      My representatives, both Republican, split over this issue. One will get a check and a thank you note and the other will get a photocopy of that check and note. We replaced a Democrat with a Republican-elect. Because I donated to his campaign, I’m invited to his inaugural parties but won’t be able to attend. However, I will also send him a copy of the check and the note.

      We can all kvetch about how money talks in Washington … or we can let ours do some of the talking, as well. My $20 check isn’t a whole lot by itself. But politicians can “run the numbers” and know what would happen if they could get a lot of their constituents to cut a check (or not) each election cycle. Showing them that we are willing to cut checks … but not to them … and letting them know EXACTLY why not is also “instructive”.

      I put about $50 into the kitty in 2014. That’s all it took to get an invite to the inaugural party (and, more importantly, a chance to rub elbows with people whose voices carry more weight than mine) and I’ve already got the same amount riding on Ben Carson (runbenrun.org) The founding fathers threw their “lives, fortunes and sacred honor” into taking this country from the Brits. We’ll have to do the same if we want to take it back from the thieves.

    Let’s talk about the OTHER factor here – where the hell’s all of the $$$$ going? This bill, as with about all of the others, are written by staffers and the individual Senators and Reps is generally limited to pork and ear marks for their supporters. The Congresspukes reactions are generally limited to press-bites for their constituents wherein the incensed pol rambles on in a state of righteous indignation about some $250 given to fund research on some dumb sounding project. Never a stern word about the millions, or billions, pumped into his/her jurisdiction – that’s…different. Those millions and billions didn’t walk into that spending bill themselves, neither did the Congressional janitor sneak them in – the Usual Suspects have been at work feathering their own nests.
    We also have outgoing Senators and Reps who are being allowed one last taste at the trough before they go AND these outgoing Congrass***** are getting pressure from their states’ power players to (as they have nothing to lose anyway) push cash into their states on the way out the door. What’s it to them, the voters tossed them, but there’s a lot of influential people in their home states with whom they’ll be doing business post retirement.
    Looking back ta Obamacare, Congress passed it without reading the bill. How many Congresstrolls, or even their staffers, read the spending bill beyond those sections that applied to their portion of the take? And anyway, it’s Christmas season, we’re all otherwise occupied otherwise. By the time the enormity of it hits us in the slumps the new guys will be there , well on their ways to their own personal feeding experiences, and they can just point at the old guys say it wasn’t my fault.


  8. BitterC says:

    Wow!!! Boehner tried to Gruber some members!!!!

    After the “cromnibus” passed Thursday night, Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., made the rather shocking claim that GOP leadership convinced him to vote for the rule allowing the bill to get to the floor by telling him they were pulling the bill anyway.

    “Earlier today, I supported the Rule because I was informed by Leadership that the CROmnibus was dead and a short term CR would take its place,” Stutzman said in a news release. “I was very surprised and even more disappointed to see the CROmnibus back on the floor. The American people deserve better.”

    The rule passed the House Thursday 214 to 212 after Stutzman and Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., both switched their votes from ‘Nay’ to ‘Yea.’

    Had Stutzman not switched, it’s unclear if the bill would ever have come to the floor, or passed hours later. Stutzman’s claim that he was told the bill was being pulled is consistent with information CQ Roll Call heard earlier in the afternoon. Leadership aides denied anything like this had taken place.

      And talking about Homeland Security being funded only through February…in my opinion that will give Obama enough time to do the amnesty damage he wants done. I have no doubt that they are well geared up to award contracts and get moving on issuing social security cards and various documents to illegals. What’s even more disturbing is that the rest of government is funded for the whole damn year. I would not be surprised if some of the “other agencies” are not tasked to perform some of the functions it takes to execute Obama’s illegal amnesty order. It’s my understanding that there was no language preventing this illegal amnesty activity using appropriated money. So basically they are using our money to destroy the future of America…all in the name of “the children”. We really are screwed.


      • Mimbler says:

        Coast, it is even sneakier than that. In three months the repubs can make a big show of defunding Homeland Security, but it will be trivial then for Obama to veto it as they no longer have the leverage of holding the entire budget hostage. They (repubs) have designed this to ensure amnesty gets funded while they posture against it. I am truly furious with them except for the few with principles that voted against this abomination,

    Wonderful. Let’s have a big round of applause for the GOP Establishment, ladies and gentlemen! They managed to throw away the most remarkable electoral victory in a generation in only one month, maneuvering themselves into a position where the losers who got crushed will be making demands to win their support for a bill that effectively ratifies their will through half of their sojourn in electoral exile.

    There was no reason to give the defeated Democrats anything except a stop-gap bill to fund the government through January, at which point the incoming Republican majorities should have exercised control over everything. If the Democrats don’t like that deal, let them shut down the government in a fit of pique, and tell voters how they party they just threw out of power should be allowed to control their lives for an extra year. Not only would that be smart politics – giving the Republicans more fiscal leverage to stand up for America against Obama’s amnesty, instead of just funding for the Department of Homeland Security – but it would represent more sensible and responsible government.

    It sucks to have something like this come and slap me in the face just over a month after the elections. I didn’t think it would happen that fast. I figured it would be at least March before we were betrayed by the Pubbies.

    I’ve written, I’ve yelled, I’ve screamed, I’ve cajoled. Over and over and over again I’ve tried to impart how important it is to have an opposition party, even if that party is in the minority, or even just a miniscule party, rather than the RINO establishment running things.

    And yet, even most of the people on the Tree House seem incapable of understanding the basic fundamental truths of our situation, and keep clinging to the fever dream that somehow the Republican party will save us, the Republicans are the good guys. They aren’t, and haven’t been for a long time.

    For all of you who voted for McConnell, and Boehner, and every other RINO out there, I hope you get what you voted for, good and hard. I wasn’t kidding when I said a vote for Satan or even the Democrat opponent was a better choice, and the lesser of two evils, over these guys.

    As for me, I’m done, probably forever. I just don’t care anymore. I will no longer waste time and energy on fruitless endeavours trying to convince insane people to stop being insane. You are insane, all of you, who voted for RINOs. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is insanity of the worst sort.

    I’m going to read novels again, and spend time with family and friends, and try to be a beacon of God’s love for those around me. I’m not going to care about anything I can’t effect change over, and will just have to learn to live in some kind of political exile. I’ll make my own personal stands where they seem best to me.

    I’m also going to read Sharon’s book, which I purchased from her for Christmas. (Thanks and hugs!) I’m going to continue to work on implementing The First Principles in my life. I’m going to focus on burnishing my shield of charity and love, and turn over to God all the rest. I’ll pray for all of you, individually and as a whole, for grace, and peace, and guidance. I’ll still be around here as long as Sundance keeps this site going.

      Cetera, before you leave your political involvement behind you forever, I/we would like your opinion on something. Considering that there is no divide now between the Republicans and the Democrats as evidenced by this just passed cromnibus bill, the subject of a new party has cropped up….the Constitution Party already has a website up and running….and I and maybe some others here would like to hear your opinion of it.



      • Cetera says:

        Dixie, it has been abundantly clear that there is no fundamental difference between the Democrats and Republicans for at least four to six years now. Heck, it was pretty obvious back in the GW administration. GW was a good and decent man, but he was not a conservative, and don’t even get me started on so many involved with him, including Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice.

        I like the Constitution Party. I’ve voted for their candidates several times. They are exactly what they claim to be. They are a Constitution first, God first, truly conservative, Christian political party. They have an organized structure and platform that the “Tea Party” doesn’t. Generally speaking, I think they are good folks who deserve support.

        However, the Constitution Party doesn’t have a prayer in these dark days. They usually get less of a showing than does the Libertarian party. They are openly Christian, which automatically gets them blackballed by allies who should know better, but just can’t bear the thought of affiliating with those they believe so stupid to believe in God.

        If you want to register with a political affiliation, the Constitution Party is a good choice. There are a number of them here in my local area that I’ve recently made contact with, and will probably participate with them on various activities on occassion.

        However, I still maintain that politics at this point will not save us. Your votes no longer mean anything. The Republicans, the Democrats, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Eric Holder, et al, are not the cause of our problems. They are the symptoms of our problems. They are the rotten fruit of our rotten tree. They are the end result of a culture of obscenity, death, greed, illicit pleasures, and selfishness. We have created this monster who tyrannizes us from D.C. It came from our hearts and minds, and we did nothing to stop it or kill it when we could have prevented it.

        The only thing to do now, the only thing that gives us a chance, is that we strangle the life from it, choke its breath from its throat, with love. Love of neighbor, love of God, love of country, love of our fellow man. We must transform and convert our nation by acts of love, and defend ourselves with the shield of charity and virtue. This will necessitate sacrifice, and it will also involve martyrs.

        When we succeed at this, the Constitution Party will become viable. Not before. One will lead to the other, but not vice versa. This is our last and only hope. There is no other. No other plan will work that does not have Love, with a capital L, at the heart of it. Think globally, act locally, in Love, and Truth.

        Go forth and fear no darkness. Head no nightly noises. Stand in the Light of His Truth and Love, and be a beacon for others to see, to know, and to follow. Give aid and comfort when you can. Be an instrument of healing and hope.

        Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
        Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
        Where there is injury, pardon;
        Where there is discord, harmony;
        Where there is error, truth;
        Where there is doubt, faith;
        Where there is despair, hope;
        Where there is darkness, light;
        And where there is sadness, joy.
        O Divine Master, Grant that I may not so much seek
        To be consoled as to console;
        To be understood as to understand;
        To be loved as to love.
        For it is in giving that we receive;
        It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
        And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

      Don’t know that I’d trust 3/4 of the state governments to retain the individual rights in the first 8 amendments because of the fight for power between the states and the federal government.

      It could, however, give us a way to avoid a violent revolution.

    The Conservatives in Congress should form a new party and quit the GOP.

    This to me appears to be a new enemy. The emergence of the RINO-Crat Coalition. Very dangerous to the Republic.

    Stop me if I’m wrong. A bill voted on the floor in the House, goes to the Senate which is currently Democratically controlled. The Senate has the “opportunity” to take out pieces, put in pieces, rewrite a few pieces or voting on it as is. So how long will that take. Then, correct me if I’m wrong, if any changes are made, it goes back to the House for approval. So how long will that take.
    When does Congress close for the holiday? That target date was for today. If Senate decides in any way to change this bill, I would guess that it won’t be handled until the New Congress is seated.
    If there is no argument and the Senate passes the bill as is, I will concede to defeat, but I still think that there is a political timeline involved in this & I still think that a CR through January will be passed in time for all to head home for the holidays, leaving the fight to the new Congress seated in January. If I’m wrong, I will concede that the Government is a tyrannical system and there is nothing other than a Convention of States, that will have any chance of returning the country to the people.

      This came from a Heritage Foundation email received today.

      *The Senate is back in session today after Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz blocked Harry Reid from fast-tracking a government spending bill that will fully fund the President’s executive amnesty.

      Senate staffers will be answering phones on Capitol Hill beginning at noon eastern time today. It is looking like the Senate may be in session until 1 a.m. Sunday morning.*

    Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:
    For me this was the last straw, I have been a republican since I turned 21 and could vote. I seriously doubt if I ever will again. We gave them the house in 2010 and the Senate in 2014 they gave us Romney in 2012 and now they give us an abomination of a budget. That means that the next opportunity will come up as the presidential campaign starts this fall and they will not want to do anything then as it might hurt their chances for the presidency. Well guess what guys you have already lost now!

    It would appear that virtually none of our elected representatives actually vote following the priniciples they ran under … but now run over. My heart fills with a foreboding darkness as I consider the grim duty that may await “we the people”.

    Yes, a constitutional convention would avert bloodshed … but it stands exactly zero chance of being convened until after blood has already been shed.
