The Democrats' "Bi-Partisanship"

BOHICA, baby.

Budget tales from the House:

7:30 PM Democrats Want to Ram Through Budget with “Reconciliation” Measure
Democrats defeated an amendment, by a vote of 14 to 22, offered by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee, which would “strike the reconciliation instructions” from the budget. Budget Reconciliation was originally designed as a deficit reduction tool. Democrats, however, seem intent on using it to ram through controversial legislation such as government run health care and a “cap and trade” energy tax. And it essentially strips the power of the minority party to offer any constructive amendments to the budget.

Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH) warned that budget reconciliation would “be the Chicago approach to governing: Strong-arm it through. You’re talking about the exact opposite of bipartisan. You’re talking about running over the minority, putting them in cement and throwing them in the Chicago River.”

Bring torches AND the pitchforks to Madistan. We can't afford either Obamunism OR ThreeCardMonte Doylism, much less both.

We can always take care of the Congresscritters later...
