SHAME: Senate democrats just voted down (Correction: they TABLED IT) the ONLY legislation to deal with debt ceiling (updated)

 (No, they did not vote on it, they tabled it – see update at bottom)


They just voted down cut, cap, and balance, which is the one and only piece of legislation in existance to deal with the debt ceiling.  These democrats are irresponsible and corrupt.  The House of Representatives passed them a responsible plan to deal with the debt ceiling and they VOTED IT DOWN.  And Harry Reid is actually proud of it.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) on Friday criticized Democrats for failing to advance a solution of their own:

“The Democrat-led Senate’s failure to both produce a budget and pass the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011 underscores the Democrats’ irresponsible commitment to the status quo,” Cornyn said. “While the President and Senator Reid refuse to produce a plan to deal with our debt crisis, Republicans will keep working to meet the nation’s fiscal challenges.” 

House Speaker John Boehner accused (AND RIGHTFULLY SO) Senate Democrats defying the will of the American people — “who overwhelmingly support real spending cuts, caps on future spending, and a balanced budget to create a better environment for private-sector job growth.”

UPDATE:  I think I mis-stated this.  It’s even Worse than I thought.  Cut, Cap, and Balance was passed by the House of Representatives with some democrat votes.  When it got to the Senate, it was TABLED without debate and without a vote and Harry Reid recessed the Senate.

I think, if he really wanted a solution, he could call it up for debate and vote – at the very least.  Why won’t he?  What is he afraid of?


I just saw another democrat misrepresent and lie about this.

Here’s how the president and the democrats are united to sabotage a solution to the debt:

The Senate just voted 51-46 (along party lines) to indefinitely table the “Cut, Cap, and Balance” legislation. The House of Representatives passed the bill on Tuesday, but President Obama pledged to veto it.

  1. Bella,

    CNN media bunnies attack your Governor Scott.


    • bellalu0

      Intolerable little twit.

      Harry Reid says Boehner’s plan was written for the tea party not the American people. Who does he think the tea party people are, Chinese?

      Reid says it will not pass, it’s dead on arrival
      Obama says veto, veto, veto.
      So who is the party of no?
      I feel bad for Boehner. He is working his butt off while the Senate is blocking everything and the prez is shouting veto.. He finally has something to cry about.


      • Bella, Sarah Palin basically told Boehner, you passed your bill stop jumping through their hoops. IT’s in the Democrat’s lap, let them explain to the American people during an economic downturn with high unemployment, why they have to spend money we don’t have, on a bloated wasteful federal government, and necessarily raise people’s taxes. The CNN media bunnies don’t get, that at some point if you want fiscal responsibility someone has to start implementing fiscal responsibility. They expect there to be no pain – those days are long gone, the opportunity to stop the ballooning deficit and feeling public discomfort has come and gone, because the political class, kept kicking the can down the road.
