Democrats block FEMA funding bill because House cut money from agency that funded Solyndra!!

The Democrat Senate blocks the FEMA spending bill and then blames the republicans

The democrats want people to suffer and starve to death, they absolutely do, especially Harry Reid, and they will deny FEMA funding in order to save more funds for Solyndra type spending.

Harry Reid is threatening yet another government shutdown.  Blaming, of course, who?  The republicans.  Jay Carney chimes in speaking for Obama, with the same load of BS.

But who blocked the bill?  The democrat Senate.  Because it cuts spending to offset the costs, i.e., cuts in energy department spending such as more Solyndra type spending. 

Come on, demos, the day is over when you can make some public statement that is diametrically opposed to the FACTS.

The Democratic-led Senate blocked a House bill Friday that would provide disaster aid and keep government agencies open, escalating the parties’ latest showdown over spending and highlighting the raw partisan rift that has festered all year.

 The republicans in the House have passed the funding bill, they just want to offset the cost by cutting what?  Cutting the money from an Energy Department Loan Program – the Loan Program that funded the Solyndra scam of $500 million dollars tax payer money.

We should be praising the republicans. 

And you have to go to Paragraph #17 to get to the meat of the disagreement, but here it is:

The bill the House approved Friday morning contained just one change — an additional $100 million in savings from cutting a second Energy Department loan program, this one aimed at sparking new energy technologies.

That is the same program that financed a $528 million federal loan to Solyndra Inc., the California solar panel maker that won praise from President Barack Obama but has since gone bankrupt and laid off its 1,100 workers. The Obama administration had praised Solyndra as a model for green energy companies, but now Congress is investigating the circumstances under which the government approved the loan.

Reid has called for a Monday vote on a new bill he wrote to accept the House-passed FEMA funding level, but to tack the additional spending onto the deficit rather than find cuts elsewhere.

From under a bridge somewhere near Cincinnati: “I, I, I, I’m a warrior for the middle class”

Is he on something…..

…..or is his speech-writer trying to make him look like a fool?

Transcript of the speech:  http://fatlip.leoweekly.com/2011/09/22/full-text-of-obamas-speech-in-nkycincinnati/

There is one thing I am really glad about and that is he has”put politics aside”, as he requested in the speech before the joint session of congress.

It’s always all about the children, yes, all about the children and the middle class.  He sounds a whole lot like what he promised to do when pushing the 2009 stiumlus bill.  He was going to repair roads and bridges, repair schools, and provide all those shovel ready jobs.  (tee hee funny funny not quite as shovel ready as he thought.)

And there’s still 35,000, that’s 35,000 schools that need repair?  Here he is in 2009:

” To give our children the chance to live out their dreams in a world that’s never been more competitive, we will equip tens of thousands of schools, community colleges, and public universities with 21st century classrooms, labs, and libraries. We’ll provide new computers, new technology, and new training for teachers so that students in Chicago and Boston can compete with kids in Beijing for the high-tech, high-wage jobs of the future.”

I thought local property and other taxes paid for the schools anyway.  What happened to all that tax money collected on gasoline sales that was to pay for roads and bridges?  But if you could fake manufacturing a few solar panels that nobody wanted, one might could have gotten, no not might could have but did get, a few hundred million dollars of stimulus money.

Here he is.  The smartest man in the world.  But it has been alleged that he made C’s and D’s in college and he has produced no evidence to the contrary.  But still so intelligent and so articulate.
