The biggest reason is because Barack Hussein Obama is asking for 2.4T dollars and to not have to come back to Congress as all other President’s have to and ask again before election day 2012. This “crisis” is Obama’s, he lives for these moments, they are called Alinsky moments. You see when you keep everyone in chaos you have an opening to “change” things to the way you want them to be. Obama is nothing special, he is just a well educated instigator, it is why he excelled at community organizing. He will take this entire Country down if given the chance and the only way to stop him is by doing what we are doing. We The People must continue to force the GOP to have a spine and fight for us. Obama is fighting for his socialist/communist brand of the United States and we in the TEA Party are the Maginot line.
November of 2010 was the first shot, each time we beat back an attempt to continue doing business as usual, it is but another battle. The war will take about 6-10 years, however if we continue to fight, we will win. Pell Grants? There Were No Cuts In This Bill, This Is Just Another Progressive Piece of Legislation, Barack Would Be Proud, Mr. Boehner
“This is a compromise piece of legislation that was negotiated between the speaker and the bipartisan leadership in the Senate,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told reporters Thursday afternoon.
One major concession is the establishment of a select joint committee to assemble another deficit-reduction package later in the 112th Congress.
“The joint select committee is something that came from the Democrats. We don’t have all the cuts we like in this bill but we’re willing to compromise,” Cantor said.
The inclusion of the extra money for Pell Grants could cost Republican votes.
Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) has compared Pell Grants to “welfare”.
“So you can go to college on Pell Grants — maybe I should not be telling anybody this because it’s turning out to be the welfare of the 21st century,” Rehberg told Blog Talk Radio in April. “You can go to school, collect your Pell Grants, get food stamps, low-income energy assistance, section 8 housing, and all of a sudden we find ourselves subsidizing people that don’t have to graduate from college.”
Rehberg has not said how he will vote on Boehner’s bill.
Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), who has not revealed his position, said the Pell Grants have “been part of the discussion” among conservatives who are debating whether to support the bill.
The above is how you know it is not a crisis and it is just the Political Class (they are not Republicans) doing what they do every year, year in and year out, spend, spend and spend some more. There is no more money and I will be damned as I sit out here and watch this dog and pony show, if I don’t stand up and be heard and stop them. Enough is enough Mr. Obama, Mr. Boehner, Mr. McConnell, Ms. Pelosi, Mr. Reid, We The People of these United States of America are telling you to STOP!
