Bull crap from the white house AKA why is the DEMOCRAT SENATE on vacation?

So I just read the president of bull crap propoganda is going to bring out some  whining crybabies today on the tax cut that is no tax cut but an extension of the raiding of the social security “trust fund” seeing as how it is not Income tax he is talking about but Payroll tax.  Could we get a video to show Harry Reid rolling grandma off a cliff? 

But if they think it is such a wonderful thing to reduce the amount of FICA reductions, then why not do it for the full year instead of 60 days?

Silly, silly democrats.  Your silly theatrics are not going to work. 

And why is the DEMOCRAT SENATE on vacation when there is work to do?  The House has rejected the bill they sent them so the ball is clearly back in the Senate at this time.

News media???? Where are you demanding the vacationing DEMOCRAT SENATE come back and do their JOBS?   They are not even pointing out that the democratic process is working and the House has rejected the Senate bill, which puts the issue back in the Senate.  What’s so hard to understand about that?  

If the alleged president wanted to do something useful, he would call HIS Senate back to Washington to do the job they are elected to do instead of engaging in theatrics.

It goes without saying that the media would be raking a republican senate over the coals for this dereliction of duty if it were a republican controlled senate that had vanished from Washington.  The GDDemocrats get away with anything in this country because of the utterly corrupt media.

So let the president of the United States engage in theatrics and let the media ignore the fact that the Senate is not in session to take care of the country’s business.  I hope to hell all the democrats are cleaned out of Washington in November. 

“Obama today will leave unsaid, of course, that everyone’s taxes will also go up if the Senate fails to return and act on the House-passed year-long payroll tax cut extension.”

FEMA found money that “averts” Reid’s threatened shutdown

Well, isn’t it amazing how FEMA suddenly found money and can make it until end of the current comtinuing resolution? Goodness Gracious, Friday Harry Reid was crying about a government shutdown.

The House demanded an accounting and passed the funding based on taking the money from other funding, which was money for electric cars and for other Solyndra type funding. They should just cut that funding in any event.

But as soon as the House passed the ball to Harry Reid’s democrat Senate, lo and behold, FEMA found some money. The Senate has tabled the House bill and passed their own bill and moved it to the House. I am not sure what is in it. Who can know?  I didn’t think the Houise of Repsentatives was in session.

OR here’s what is reported to have happened in the Senatet: 

The Senate will vote on three bills tonight: A vote on a CR with the extra FEMA funds not offset. A second vote on a clean CR. And finally the upper chamber will vote on a one-week clean CR by voice vote that the House can pass by unanimous consent.

(Hmmm now that really clears it up.)

Even as Washington establishment seeths, the republican House, thanks to the new tea party members, is having an impact. So you can plainly see who is behind all the wild spending.   And they don’t want to stop even now. They would rather threaten another government shutdown than to cut some of the “green energy” money that is being thrown about. I just wonder whose pocket all that money is going into?  Tom, Dick, or Harry?

Mitch McConnell made the following statement:

“FEMA indicated it already has the funds it needs for the duration of the current [Continuing Resolution] which is basically this week, without the billions more in funding the Democrats have been calling for,” McConnell said. “Quite frankly I think this is a vindication of what Republicans have been saying all along: Before we spend the taxpayers’ money we should have a real accounting, a real accounting of what is actually needed.”

He is part of the problem or has been. He is eat up with Washington filth, in my opinion. Shouldn’t say that because I am not sure, but he has been there a long, long time and so he has to be a party to what has been going on up there.

I await the vote in the House of Representatives on the Senate bill that is being advertised as a sure thing (as in shutdown averted). I don’t know how they are so sure about that since the House has not passed it yet.

And as we end this fiscal year – WHERE IS THE BUDGET? All of this wrangling is due to the fact there is no budget. Democrats, do you ever intend to comply with the law and pass a budget?

FAA funding restored – Senate will approve House bill Friday by unanimous consent

Top US Senate Democrat Harry Reid announced Thursday that polarized lawmakers had reached a stopgap deal to end a costly row that has shut airport construction and halted tax payments by airlines.

“I am pleased to announce that we have been able to broker a bipartisan compromise between the House and the Senate to put 74,000 transportation and construction workers back to work,” Reid said in a statement.

“This agreement does not resolve the important differences that still remain. But I believe we should keep Americans working while Congress settles its differences, and this agreement will do exactly that.”

And what is the big deal Harry Reid is talking about?

Under the accord, the Senate will pass the House version of the legislation on Friday, setting up a fresh fight on the issue in mid-September, officials said.

“We are pleased the Senate has agreed to pass the House-approved FAA extension tomorrow,” said a spokesman for Republican House Speaker John Boehner, Michael Steel.

Yep, just exactly what they could have done BEFORE they adjourned and left Washington.  And this after the Secretary of Transportation, Ray LeHood has been on tv waving his arms and ranting, something about being “held hostage.”  (New and original?  But then he’s a democrat.  They just say “hostage” without rhyme or reason.)

And this from NPR:

THE DEAL would allow the Senate to approve a House bill extending the FAA’s operating authority through mid-September, including a provision that eliminates $16.5 million in air service subsidies to 13 rural communities. A vote on the bill is expected Friday.

Republicans had insisted on the subsidy cuts as their price for restoring the FAA to full operation, but the cuts may become moot.

The bill includes language that gives the transportation secretary the authority to continue subsidized service to the 13 communities if he decides it’s necessary.

Democrats said they expect the White House to effectively waive or negate the cuts

So there you go — the democrat senate could have approved the house bill and sent it to the president for signature BEFORE THEY LEFT Washington for recess and avoided the whole mess.

But it is abundantly clear that the democrats are not going to allow any spending cuts if they can possibly prevent it.  They are adamant about this even as the stock market plunges over 500 points today.  Since the democrats have been in control of congress since 2006, this is why the debt has skyrocketed over the last few years.  And when efforts are made to reign them in, they kick and scream and get mad as old wet setting hens.  Constantly muttering:  Hostage.  Hostage.  Hostage.
