The clock is ticking. A shutdown seems inevitable.
Thad McCotter (R-MI) scored it today on the floor of the House when he compared the Democrats to the Led Zeppelin hit, “the song remains the same.”
The GOP pushed forward a continuing resolution that would have cut $12 billion from the budget and provided for the funding for the military for the rest of the year. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid, holding true to the tenets of the party of treason, promptly killed the Continuing Resolution.
Now, the party of treason is holding the military hostage to Democratic constituencies. That’s right, because the GOP wants to stop funding for Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry, Obama, Pelosi and Reid want to make sure American soldiers and sailors who are in harms way do not get paid.
Of course, Obama, Pelosi and Reid hate the military and the patriotic Americans who serve, so this is not a shock.
This budget is not about spending. At least not for the Democrats. This is about protecting their constituencies who fund the party of treason. The abortion industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and they contribute richly to the Democrats who keep them in business.
When the Democrats start screaming about defunding, they are concerned about defunding themselves.
Their shrieking has become almost comical. Harry Reid, who has pretty much made the Senate a testosterone free zone, shrieked that Republicans wanted to keep women from getting cancer screenings. Democrats would have you believe that John Boehner, Eric Cantor and others in the GOP have meetings in their offices after hours, gleefully cackling as they sacrifice women on altars to the statue of mammon.
Jesse Jackson came unglued claiming the budget shut down was a continuation of the civil war. Someone check. I think Jesse Jackson’s few remaining brain cells are on the endangered species list.
Nancy Pelosi came out of her Botox induced coma and announced the GOP was going to kill 6,000,000 seniors. Then she cut it to 3,000,000.
Congressman Louise Slaughter, whose IQ is probably floating somewhere in the single digit range ranted, Republicans are trying to kill women. No, but Democrats are trying to kill millions of unborn children. Of course in Slaughter’s demented mind, such as it is, the GOP leaders are fishing out their AK-47s so they can line women up and shoot them.
The simple fact of the matter is the Democrats do not want to stop spending. They do not want any of their slush funds eliminated. Everyone needs to remember, in 2010, Nancy Pelosi did not pass a budget because she felt the budget would hurt their chances in the 2010 elections. As Dr. Phil would say, “How did that work out for you?”
If the government shuts down, it is because the Democrats ignore the will of the people. The American people voted, saying they wanted less spending. The Republicans have listened (at least to a limited extent). The Democrats have not.
So there you have it. The Democrats are willing to shut the government down and deny pay to our military people so that their constituencies can continue to kill babies and plunder the public treasury.
Is anyone else as disgusted as I am?
What are you smoking? I'm disgusted with your obvious lies. Just because you don't like the Dems doesn't mean you can make things up. Politics is give and take and if you think Boehner doesn't know you're crazy.
We give our blood, sweat, tears, time away from our loved ones and sometimes much need rest, or sleep to earn a decent living for ourselves and our family, and they confiscat our earnings with a Bill in congress to enrich themselves and their friends. That's how simple it is. Just take from us, take from our children, take from our grand-children and take somemore. It's easy. Then we put them back in office in a couple of years, so they can start the process all over again. When are we going to demand term limits. I didn't say ask for it. I said demand. WE THE PEOPLE demand term limits.
Servants, in history served no more than seven years. After 7 years, they were free to pursue their own dreams. Our politicians are corrupt. They feel entitled to be treated as royalty. They serve only selfish interests! Let us seek out those not hunting down the spotlight, but who are busy trying to get these problems solved, without accolades and fanfare!
I have one King to whom I trust my very life...and that King is Jesus Christ! None other merits my total trust and devotion!
The freedom this gives me is both glorious and demanding of a dear price. I may not be loved by this world, but The One Who Matters deserves the allegiance I give Him!
