Change may have finally come to Washington

Thank you, Tea Party.  They say these new tea party congressmen may not even care if they are re-elected.  Can you imagine that?  They came to Washington to cut spending.  They are putting country above party and country above their own careers, principle above useless compromise. 

I say by doing this, they will without a doubt be re-elected.  They could even rise in their political careers.  Sometimes you just have to do what’s right and take the consequences, good or bad. 

Instead of getting blamed, they should be taking credit.

Reid does not have a bill, Obama does not have a plan or a bill

The president is working the phones…..

Through my rage this morning, I hear some Obama representative, when asked where Obama’s plan is, say this:  He is working so very hard behind the scenes — ON THE TELEPHONE.  I thought I must have misunderstood her, but she repeated it, “he is working behind the scenes on the telephone.”

Not working on a budget, not working on a plan, but working the phone.

In the Obama administration, the national debt has increased 5 Trillion dollars, at least.  At least.   It was already at 8 Trillion, but just in two years it is now approaching 16 Trillion.

During the entire Obama administration there has been NO federal budget.

The republicans have put forth a budget.  DIED in the democrat Senate.

This will be the 4th time the debt ceiling has been raised since Obama took office.  All three times were under the democrat controlled Washington, almost in secret thanks to the corrupt media.  I wonder how many times they were planning to raise it and just how high they were willing to go?  16 trillion?  20 trillion?  24 trillion?  There is just no telling.

The republican House has already passed a plan to the Senate in the form of Cut, Cap, and Balance, bipartisan, by the way.  Harry Reid and the democrats TABLED it without debate and without a vote.  The media just glosses over that one.

The republicans have put out about three plans on the debt ceiling.  And for what are they working so hard?  All I hear is Harry Reid saying they will not pass any of them.  He repeats the Boehner plan will not pass, will not pass, will not pass.  He says the Boehner plan is written for the tea party not the American people?  Who the hell does he think the tea party is?  His insults are intolerable.  He almost got his senile butt defeated by the tea party in October.  The saddest thing about the entire election was he was returned to the Senate. 

On top of that, Obama threatens to veto it if by chance it does pass the democrat Senate.

The democrats had it all for two years – complete control – and they ran up 5 trillion dollars in debt.  They are fighting now to continue spending.

Reid does not have a bill, it’s a sham.   Obama does not have a plan.  There’s no Reid bill.  There’s no Obama bill.  They have NOTHING.

So what the are they doing?  Republicans, sit down.  Leave it to them to figure out.  I hope the republican bill gets voted down in the House.

And if we allow the democrats and the democrat controlled media to somehow blame the republicans for a government shutdown. we are the dumbest people on the face of the earth.

Now to the republicans:  The republican establishment is in power right now why?  Because of the tea party.  And yet we have to be called Hobbits by some jackass at the Weekly Standard, sorry, I believe it’s the Wall Street Journal.  I’ll tell you who will go to the center of the earth soon and it’s not the tea party.  And John McCain is a disgrace.  An absolute disgrace.

Obama demands members of congress to appear before him

“Who does he think he is?”

Krauthammer explains the essense of Obama in a few short minutes.   Obama demands some members of Congress to meet with him in the morning at 11:00 a.m.  Obama thinks as a dictator and a marxist and cannot seem to grasp co-equal branches of government:

Here’s the full speech of BHO that CK was referring to:

Marco Rubio: Can’t compromise when the other side has no plan

Senator (Marco) Rubio: “I have watched the President give press conferences, I have watched the President give speeches, but I have yet to see a plan from the President. And with all due respect to my colleagues in the other party here in the Senate, I haven’t seen a plan from them either. They are the majority party. They control this chamber. They control the Senate. And I haven’t seen a plan from them.

“A moment ago we heard this talk about – well we have to compromise. Well it’s really hard to compromise when the other side doesn’t have a plan.

…..

And so I would urge the leadership of this chamber and the President of the United States to offer their ideas on paper. Put your ideas on paper and offer them so we can begin to work on this concept of compromise that you’ve offered. Because you can’t compromise and you can’t negotiate with people that will not offer a plan.

They are blowing smoke with the so-called “Gang of 6” plan.  It’s not a plan.  It’s a decoy.  It’s not in writing.  It’s nowhere near being a piece of legislation.  Obama blew that out there to try to deflect attention from the fact they have no plan and the fact that the democrats and the president have shot down the only plan there is.
