The Hill is running a story this morning with the title that TEA Party opponents are complicating the insanity of a continuing resolution being voted on every three weeks It Is Only Complicated If You Are Playing Political Games.
Jordan and Rubio both complained that the latest measure does not cut deeply enough into federal spending.
â€œWhile attempts at new spending reductions are commendable, we simply can no longer afford to nickel-and-dime our way out of the dangerous debt America has amassed,â€ Rubio wrote on the conservative RedState blog.
Jordan also complained that the measure did not include language important to social conservatives that would defund Planned Parenthood and the new healthcare law.
â€œWe need to stop sending taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, and we need to defund ObamaCare,â€ he said in a statement.
Half measures will get us no where fast. This is a time for leadership, I had hoped that would be John Boehner and Eric Cantor, both of whom I did not want in leadership positions. They unfortunately were given those positions and have been playing fast and loose with the promises that were made to We The People that the spending would stop! That they are playing political games (trust me, I understand they are politicians) with whiny Democrats who would spend us into bankruptcy is appalling. I am disgusted with their attempts at continuing the gravy train of public spending. I want them to recognize that they were given a gift in 2010 and while none of us would vote for a Democrat, there are certainly plenty of TEA Party Nation Americans standing at the ready to primary those who ignore the will of the American people!
Trust us Speaker Boehner we will be foreclosing on your job before this Country is foreclosed on, bank on that.
