Good Job! I cannot express how proud I am of the Congressmen and women that we sent to Washington. While we did not get everything that we wanted, I can damn well tell you that with the Senate and the Presidency in the hands of the Democrats, the deal was not going to be much better. If you want to sit and complain that you didn’t get something you wanted out of this clown show that happened in DC, then you damn well better get the lead out of your britches and join the GOP and become a Precinct Committeeman/woman. If you look around this site you will note different areas to go to, and you will find out how simple it is and how little of your time it will take. There is no quick and easy way out of the horror that has been inflicted on this country for years due to apathy of the voter–yes YOU having sat back and allowed this spending year after year. Yes YOU sitting back while BOTH parties had a field day with our tax dollars.
The bottom line is. those Senators who have lied to their constituents and sold them a bill of goods on being “fiscal conservatives” are now going to have to vote on repealing Obamacare straight up–no lies, no middle ground, a straight up yes or no vote. We will carry that vote into the primaries of 2012 and we will take back the Senate with backup for REAL Conservatives like DeMint, Lee, and Paul. This Is Just The Beginning.
A joint statement from the Senate majoirty leader and the speaker of the house on the deal: â€œâ€œWe have agreed to an historic amount of cuts for the remainder of this fiscal year, as well as a short-term bridge that will give us time to avoid a shutdown while we get that agreement through both houses and to the President. We will cut $78.5 billion below the Presidentâ€™s 2011 budget proposal, and we have reached an agreement on the policy riders. In the meantime, we will pass a short-term resolution to keep the government running through Thursday. That short-term bridge will cut the first $2 billion of the total savings.â€ Plus, the rider preventing D.C. funds for abortion remained in the deal. Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will also bring votes to the Senate floor on Planned Parenthood funding and on defunding ObamaCare. If this isnâ€™t a rout I donâ€™t know what is.
This is the just the beginning folks, there will be much more for all of us to do. If Pelosi and company had written this year’s budget there would be nothing that resembles a cut in it. That there is a total decrease since taking office in January of $78B for the budget year 2011 is a VICTORY for all of us who worked so hard to get these members into the House. The next battle is the Senate and I am predicting anywhere from 11 to 15 seats are going to flip our way. So buckle your seat belts, it’s going to be a hell of a ride!
