A View From The Cheap Seats

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: ““We 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 President’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.” 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 isn’t a rout I don’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!

    • Thank you for the kind words, I just cannot stand those who would despair over this vote for spending that should have already been into law. Let us save our firepower for the two biggies on tap, 2012 spending and the raising the debt ceiling. Those poor men and women we sent to Congress in 2010 have NO IDEA how bad its going to get….LOL!

  1. Some thoughts:
    1. I am not a financial guru so I have to rely on gut for first impression of did they (the Repubs) get the job done? My gut says, under all the circumstances, they did not let us down & got done what they could. Remember this was the House vs. the Presidency and Senate and MSM, not an even playing field.
    2. Including cuts previously made in the continiung resolutions, the total that has been cut from 0s budget is actually anywhere between $70 and 100 bn. About 2 or 3 percent of the total budget. Is this financially, statisticaqlly significant? People I trust tell me, actually yes it is especially 10 years out. While we all want a real 15-20 % cut, this is a respectable first step. Boehner and the Repubs at least did not get rolled.
    3. They (House leaders) played their hand the best they could and got the message across – the Dems know the vote on the debt ceiling is coming, they are alredy starting to run for cover and Harry knew he is already starting to have some defections.

    • cactusjack, Harry came thank Obama for a lot of the grief that the Dems are feeling at this point. Having the CinC himself deciding that the military shouldn’t get paid was the most boneheaded thing the man could have done. The outcry on that one thing alone must have produced heartburn in all kinds of places.

      As has been pointed out elsewhere, even Clinton knew better than to do something so rawly manipulative.

      • It was just more temptation than his America hating, military despising ass could bear. Dems have always despised the military, remember back to Kerry’s remarks about the uneducated military trapped with no other choice, or the Dem legislator during the Bush/Gore Florida hanging chad drama who called us all “tax dodgers”. Stupid lib, the military has been paying taxes since they actually started to get paid. Obama thought he could hold the military loving Americans over a barrel and exercise his hatred of all things American and exceptional at the same time. LOL, sometimes nothing works out right.

        • It said it and we will use it against him in the 2012 election cycle. I can see the commercials now! You will our fine men and women n the military against the dead babies of Planned Parenthood and the question who did Barack Hussein Obama protect? with his words saying he would veto the bill to fund the military.

          • Why does nothing really surprise or shock me anymore that comes out of -0-;s White House including stiffing the military. Family of mine in the military told me as of last night about 10pm central, they could actually go on line and see their next paychecks yet to be issued, and they were made out to half pay. Military families all over the world were scared. As far as the negotiations, my personal belief (just an opinion) is that Boehner and crew (while committed to pro-choice I will assume that for now) never intended to touch the socalled “women’s rights” areas this time – they were just messing with the Dems and knew that would cause them and their big contributors to froth at the mouth and get the Dems off game. All the Repubs wanted this round, was to get the most dollars cut as possib le. That’s what looks like happened, in any event. Score: tactical draw, strategic victory for Boehner and the House – the Dems did not stop cuts from starting to happen.

  2. I agree what we got was as good as it gets. Lets see the abortion debate front and center and get those “pro-life” senators up for re-election in conservative states on the record.

    At the same time, lets line with with Paul Ryan and the “Pathway to Prosperity” to get that piece of crap Obamacare law unfunded.
