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.
