Budgetary Scheme Passes Senate at 3am – Two Year Continuing Resolution With Unlimited Debt Ceiling…

I refuse to call this a “budget deal”, it’s a scheme to extend federal spending until March of 2017 when the next President’s (whoever gets elected next year) legally required federal budget (for fiscal year 2018) is due.

3:00am? …Jackasses!   You know what else passed in the middle of the night when no-one was watching?  ObamaCare, that’s what !  1:27am 12/23/09 – Only a few of us, and Santa of course, were paying attention and throwing bricks at our TV sets.  {A Pox On Their Houses}..  Oy, I hate these corrupto-critters.

I’m not even sure why, how,  or even ‘if’, President Obama will proffer a Fiscal Year 2017 budget, normally legally required by March 2016, given that congress has already agreed to spend whatever they need through Fiscal Year 2017.  Of course that’s without even discussing spending of Fiscal Year 2016 (which began a month ago).

Fiscal Year 2017 – hypothetically due for signature Sept of 2016 – is ‘WHAT’ exactly? Status? Damn interesting seeing as the new Speaker of the House was the former Chairman of the Budget Committee that couldn’t put Fiscal Year 2016 budget on Obama’s desk…. 

Didn’t you like how the debt, deficit and debt ceiling was debated on CNBC last week.  What’s that?.. It wasn’t?…  Huh, imagine that.  And,… Well,… Oh yeah, I forgot, Paul Ryan was/is also the childhood BFF of RNC Chair Reince Prebius…. say-no-more!

WASHINGTON DC […] “The bill is the product of an unfair, dysfunctional, and undemocratic process — a process that is virtually indistinguishable from what we promised the American people a G.O.P.-controlled Congress would bring to an end,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) said from the Senate floor.

He added that the legislation “represents the last gasping breath of a disgraced bipartisan beltway establishment on the verge of collapse.”

Obama Big Addicted SpenderLee and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) circulated a letter ahead of the vote asking that their colleagues join them in rejecting the deal.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was the only GOP presidential contender to vote for the package. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) all voted against it.

The Senate’s action on the agreement comes after House lawmakers passed the deal 266-167, including the support of 79 Republicans.

The package was a final legislative victory for outgoing House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who officially submitted his resignation on Thursday.

It also gives new Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) breathing room as he settles in to the House’s top spot, by allowing him to avoid what had been a looming Nov. 3 deadline to pass a debt bill and mid-December deadline fund the government.

The deal suspends the limit on borrowing until March 16, 2017, leaving the next fight to Obama’s successor. It also raises spending levels above the 2011 Budget Control Act, increasing funding by $80 billion through September 2017.

It also includes changes to entitlement programs, including avoiding a premium hike for many Medicare enrollees and bolstering funding for Social Security’s disability trust fund.

With the deal headed to Obama’s desk — where he’s expected to sign it — lawmakers will now turn their attention to passing either 12 individual spending bills or one large omnibus bill.  (read more)

      I only hope, they are not election proof. I fear, they may well be just that. A coalition of democrats and republicans in the legislature. How could they be controlled or defeated in an election? I do not think it can. The only way to beat it would be a counter coalition of the right and left such as Sanders and Trump, joining forces in a temporary truce. We live in perilous times.

                My opinion is that many in government are followers,
                not capable of original thought. If you eliminate the
                negative GOPe/Uniparty leadership, you might get
                a majority who follow someone who leads in a
                conservative direction.

                Case in point: Replacing Boehner with Paul Ryan
                makes little difference. Replacing Paul Ryan
                with a true, not faux, conservative would make
                a lot of difference.

                That is why voting Paul Ryan out of office in 2016
                is imperative. However, we can’t just willy nilly
                vote all the jerks out of office; we might lose the
                majority in the House.

                It has to be a defined plan. Installing Paul Ryan
                as speaker was orchestrated by the GOPe so
                they would not lose their power. Eliminating
                Paul Ryan is a must. He will be a very large
                thorn in President Trump’s side. Paul Ryan
                is the face of the globalists. Paul Ryan
                supports amnesty and open borders. The
                No 1 and 2 threats against the sovereignty
                of our nation.

                  to make smart decisions.

                  Although, there is so much emotion
                  (anger, tears, shouting at the television,
                  yelling at a former lefty friend LOL)
                  from all of us in realizing the media has
                  sold us a “pig in a poke” for decades.
                  All the work and monies we put in to
                  elect what turned out to be faux
                  conservatives coupled with the
                  traitorous activities of the GOPe
                  makes us weary and exhausted.

                  initially).

                  However, all the shenanigans by
                  the traitors brought us Donald Trump.
                  That is a win. Now we have to do
                  our jobs; help him win by sending
                  him small donations and post cards
                  (love that idea), volunteering and
                  voting in people who will help his
                  agenda which is our agenda.

                  Sorry to be preachy, however, I am
                  very passionate about our future
                  possibilities with Trump. Just think,
                  this nation is on the brink of
                  communism and the people have
                  a chance to reign it back in.

Donald is a business man, a very good one. I have no doubt that he has hired the best in all aspects of Saving America to counsel him. All he is asking of us is to BE STRONG, SPREAD THE WORD, AND!!!! Most IMPORTANTLY!!!! GET OUIT and VOTE IN YOUR PRIMARY ELECTION! After that, all he wants is for each and every US CITIZEN to enjoy the future we worked for and believe in.

            His opposition to this point are puppets and rats. Expose their contribution to society to one and all and they will quickly change their tune and squeal on their employers. Can’t wait to hear the campaign promises from upcoming reps and senate when Trump makes it into the race.

        I have the same fear, Doodah. Even if Conservatives could set up candidates to primary all of the 435 House seats that are up for re-election every two years, this coalition has proven to be stronger, more organized and willing to use any means necessary to cut Conservatives down and out.

        If we did set up primary candidates, I feel like we would have to do it in ‘stealth’ mode, somehow like Dave Brat,just came out of nowhere for the take down of Eric Cantor. They never saw that coming.

        I used to feel that “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” But, I think the time for being mad is over. People are mad when they feel that they still have something to fight for/fight against. I don’t feel that any longer. They have become bullet proof. They have secured the exits.

      We need the States Convention to amend the Constitution to firstly, give power back to the States (decentralize power out of DC) and return to the States the representation they had prior to the 17th amendment. Secondly, other amendments could be in regards to term limits for the Justices in the Supreme Court, because they have become the final arbiters of the liberal/communist/globalists agenda. I am sure there are other amendments that can address this utter corruption. Otherwise, we are lost as a country.

      Our current runaway Federal Government is on a spending spree that will bankrupt our grandchildren and their children, not to mention that they are all acting with utter disregard and contempt for established law, in this case passing a budget as per law.

      I am disgusted with the whole lot of them and I regard all of them, with the very few exceptions of a handful of true conservatives, to be traitors and anti American, extremely unpatriotic and bordering on malicious with evil intents!

        Despite claims Donald “has high negatives”, he continues leading legitimate polls, So his “high positives” predominate. Many special interests however oppose him and what he stands for (us) and they will continue to do so even as POTUS. So his ability to overcome opposition, build alliances, will be critically tested.

        Given the chance to govern I assume he will succeed putting forward winning, common sense proposals including balanced budgets. God willing.

    The only solution I can think of right now is: “mass arrests.” Congress, working (if you can call it that) in lockstep with Choom Boy, has committed a criminal act on America. Economic crime is crime, you know.

    But it was surprising to see that the two worst slackers in the presidential race, Cruzer and The Rube, actually managed to show up for the vote (or were they allowed to phone it in?) and, what’s more, voted “no.”

    My “cold anger” has nothing to do with Republicans; if they were a house, they would be condemned as “unlivable” and demolished. My anger is directed at the White House and Congress, and the fools who elected these venal, self-serving, tone-deaf wastes of oxygen. Once all of them are gone, we can establish new political parties that work for the people rather than themselves. You may call one of the new parties “Republican” if you like.

      Sorry, you may know and you think many may know because you are surrounded here by comforting like minds, but the majority of the nation is clueless. They don’t know the difference between debt and deficit. They don’t know what a GDP is. They are fed lies about the unemployment rate. They judge the strength of the military on slogans of the past. They don’t even budget for their own household, let alone follow the budget process in Congress. They don’t know how much a billion or a trillion is. Many are actually aware that everything is made in China but don’t see the implication for the US. So they aren’t furious, at most they are vaguely aware that things are a little off.
      The good news is that while in any group about 20 people are standing around waiting to be led, it only takes one person to lead that many. Change is going to take massive education that makes the problems personal to a much bigger fraction of the population. Even a political junkie, more liberal than me but widely knowledgeable, recently did not know the difference between the reported unemployment rate and the actual rate counting those who have given up. I was able to show him a govt. graph, then he believed. I suggest an “each one reach one”‘ strategy: find someone and convince him on one point. Not to vote for a particular person, not to get the whole big picture, but to know what is really going on in a tiny point that concerns him. “The constant drip of water wears away the hardest stone.”

          You comfort each other in the struggle. I’m not demeaning that at all, it is a survival necessity. Like all blogs, people of similar view points tend to congregate and commiserate. And sometimes turn into an echo chamber. This one is better than most because comments are constructive, high minded, and the commentary doesn’t turn into a running sort of “Yeah?” “Oh yeah!” between two people. Good commenters, good community, good moderating, props to you. How you keep the trolls down compared to many sites is amazing.
          The “each one reach one” strategy is actually a serious political maneuver that was used by a group I was in long ago for lobbying something. The idea is that each of us may be small, but together we are strong: we just have to reach out and find someone to join. And it is not intimidating to find one person to convince. And then you have a friend, and you reach out together to find another, and each one tries to find another, and so on. It makes a ripple effect.

            Agree completely. I’ve taken to selling Trump – gently – already. Many people want to support him. They just need to know that there are intelligent, “aware”, open-minded, and conservative Americans who are already supporting him, and who respect him for his intelligence, ability, and ethics.

            We have to overcome the media’s attempted pre-marginalization of Trump as a media creation they get to define. That, in fact, is one aspect of Trump’s intelligence – the fact that he USED the media’s attempt to define him, as a vehicle he could hijack to actually run 180 degrees from where they were taking the country. But what I’m finding is that Trump is doing a lot of the heavy lifting of selling Trump – all we have to do is validate it.

    And the RNC wonders why Trump and Carson are the top picks for president. This is a revenge bill for pressuring Bonehead Boehner to resign. Get rid on one idiot, and we get all of their friends punishing the citizens. Make a list of all the Republicrats who voted for this atrocity, and make sure they are vote out in 2016. They are not upholding their oath of office. Now, more than ever, we need term limits for Congress.

    It must have been very important to some group that Obama has access to unlimited amounts of our, our children and grandchildren’s money. Since we know who runs the GOPe it is not hard to guess who.

    They must think they are in their “End Game” to behave so blatantly, what can we do?

    If the Uniparty had the wit to see the handwriting on the wall, which they don’t at the moment being blinded by their past success, I think they would bail on this election and leave the mess to — someone — to clean up while they rest on their fat and reposition to try again. And what a mess it will be by 2017, financially, socially, and militarily. It could actually be an opportunity to get past them, for someone fearless and talented and with the confidence to take on the mess to point out what they are going to own and be hated for forever.

  17. The government is broken (which is why the immigration system is broken) and, therefore we need a complete and comprehensive overhaul of congress (vote all the fools out and instigate through constitutional amendment term limits and a balanced budget)! The sooner the better

    They are not even trying to pretend that the American people matter at all. It is in-your-face tyranny. I have no doubt that they will attempt to steal the nomination from Trump. They know that not one consequence has been paid for their treachery so far, and they are not about to slink away and let the Grand Scheme that they are running slip away from them.

    Folks, the reality is that we are at the point that no one will be arrested, as those arresting know their lives will be destroyed and their families threatened. There is no law enforcement mechanism in place. They probably WILL steal the nomimnation. They have become COMPLETELY LAWLESS. The land of the Rule of Law has created its own monster.

    It’s revolution time, guerrilla revolution time, and although I would certainly not do it, there WILL be people who will act in their capacity as excellent marksmen and women, who will do their duty for the Republic. It should be done steathily, so as not trigger martial law, but enough to send a message. Maybe hackers to empty bank accounts of the politicians, and give the families of wounded vets who can’t get treatment. Car disablements in strategic locations. Armed invasions of family vacations, with no harm done. I can think of a million things. Enough to send a strong message.

    It’s past time for election corrections. We are at war.

        Well, this IS what it’s coming to. As far as my own “acting wisely”, I have no intention of doing anything rash. However, there is no legal recourse left, we are at that point spoken of by so many of our wonderful Founders, the same place they found themselves a couple of centuries ago when the barely tolerable became intolerable.

        If you see a way to change it, let me know. Voting? Nah. The courts? No. Congress? Nope. Civil disobedience? Maybe.

        I am a veteran of MANY campaigns, some at very high levels, but the vote fraud was not then as it is now. Short of armed insurrection (which I do not advocate at this point), there is no legal recourse left. I am just being realistic. People who have nothing to lose are very dangerous, and I know some myself. Some are vets, some are ranchers. Some are just angry enough. Some see their children being slaves in the “land of the free”. As I said, dangerous, but not to us.

    Friends, never forget what is really happening here. From the US Chamber yesterday:

    The House of Representatives on Thursday bid farewell to a leader who has long supported the business community and fought for bold policies that have helped grow the economy. Fortunately, the House ushered in a new leader who’s been just as staunch a supporter of America’s job creators.

    “We congratulate Rep. Paul Ryan on becoming the new speaker of the House and look forward to working with him and his team,” U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue said in a statement following the passing of the gavel from Speaker John Boehner to Ryan on Thursday. “He is an innovative, creative, and often courageous lawmaker.”

    During his four years as speaker, John Boehner presided over one of the most bitterly divided and persistently gridlocked congressional chambers in recent memory. And yet, the Ohio Republican managed to oversee – and in several cases spearhead – successful efforts to rein in federal spending and refute overreach, cut taxes and pass Trade Promotion Authority, each of which stand to help grow the economy.

    “He rose above politics time and again, often at great personal sacrifice, to make the tough decisions our country desperately needed,” Donohue said in an earlier statement following Boehner’s retirement announcement in late September. “We thank him for that service.”

    He added that “we will miss his deep understanding of the positive role business plays in society.”

    Please remember that trillions are at stake and they think we are just bit players (meaning chumps). That’s because up to this point, we’ve been too busy living quiet lives, doing the right things, raising our families, and trusting who we thought represented us. We can’t get fooled again.

        who’s a little slow in the noggin …
        or who has been defiant and disruptive in class (simple bad behavior gets translated into “behavioral disability”) …
        or is just sullen and uncooperative and unwilling to work …

        … has been placed on Social Security Disability and will receive a salary for their entire life.

        All at the expense of the productive taxpayer. Mark my prediction.

How many power brokers are making sure they get their share of the Federal pig before new diners push into the table? With the huge amounts of money being bandied about here what makes you think your opinions, singularly or in a huge bloc, matter to the distributors? Let’s see how many Comgresspigs post their income tax returns for the next few years. Budget hell, it’s a paycheck for thieves.
