Dingy "Compromise": Obozo's Way or Go To Hell!

Yup. Told you so.

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said on Friday his budget legislation would increase the nation’s borrowing authority until March, 2013 and reiterated that he would not accept a short-term debt limit increase as Republicans are insisting. --Reuters at Zippers

IOW, Boehner gave these jerkwads the spending they wanted (less what...$900Bn over TEN years?), and the debt-hike they want, which will punish our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

And Jerkwad One in the Senate says "jam it" at the instruction of Jerkwad Obozo.

Tomorrow, the Jerkwad Chorus will be calling for "compromise."

The "Party of Stupid" needs to get out and start talking about how they offered a "compromise" when the Democrats offered nothing. Hammer away at it every minute of every day before the Democrats get out there with the "extreme proposal" meme.

But they won't the GOP will give the Democrats the bat to beat the GOP over the head.

The Democrats are well over 800 days with no Federal Budget. The GOP is unwilling to use that little fact and I don't understand it at all.

There's a REASON that the Pubbies are called "The Stupid Party."

But Dad29, can you tell us why you keep voting for them?

Worst. Congress. Ever.

"they offered a "compromise""

What compromise did they offer?

"the Democrats offered nothing."

Untrue. The Democrats offered a plan that included increased revenue. When GOP said "stuff it", the Dems took revenue off the table. They've clearly NOT offered "nothing".

"The GOP is unwilling to use that little fact"

Ridiculous! There is not a Republican speaking if front of a TV camera or microphone who hasn't mentioned the lack of a passed budget while forgetting that Democrats could NEVER pass a budget without Republican help.

Dad29 said...

Really? No budget w/o Pubbie help?

They managed with ObozoCare and NO Republican 'help.'

Took a lot of lies, cheating, and other typical (D) fraud to make it happen, of course.

That was in ONE year, not two--wherein they had the exact same majorities in House and Senate.

Try again.

Was it not one Harry Reid that stated out loud that it would serve no purpose for the Democrats to put forth a budget? Was it not Presidential mouthpiece Jay Carney doing the tap dance and soft shoe to avoid actually putting out any details of the alleged Obama "plan" to the press corps?

The entire Dem strategy was to not put forth a plan, but to demagogue the Ryan budget. As mentioned above, the GOP has some very good ideas, but after a few decades are still complete morons on getting the message out.

News Item:

Senate Republicans want a 60-vote threshold for a debt-limit bill to pass the chamber, but it’s actually Democrats who are enforcing the filibuster on their own legislation, insisting on delaying a vote until 1 a.m. Sunday morning.

That's Reid's OWN BILL that he's filibustering.

You mean "more taxes."

Is that what YOU recommend at this time, Jimbo?

Jim said...

"That was in ONE year, not two--wherein they had the exact same majorities in House and Senate."

No, they didn't. Due to delay in getting Franken seated and the death of Ted Kennedy, the Democrats only had 60 votes in the Senate from July 7th 2009 to August 24th 2009 and that was mostly during the August recess. They also had 60 from September 25th to February 4th 2010 during which time PPACA was passed.

"Took a lot of lies, cheating, and other typical (D) fraud to make it happen, of course."

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

"Is that what YOU recommend at this time, Jimbo?"

Yes Daddybo. If my wife lost her job and I wanted to keep paying my mortgage and car payments, I'd look for a second job or maybe sell some things on eBay.

We may have a spending problem, but we also have a revenue problem. Bush tax cuts and recession are the two biggest factors in our current deficits.

Beer, Bicycles and the VRWC said...

No, Jim. Your are 100% wrong. It IS a "spending problem". It's just like you go out and get that second job and your wife spends every penny of it and more. Oh...and she's bringing her free-loading brother and his family to stay with you.

Dad29 said...

OK, Jimbo.

Get the second job, and up your tax bracket--meaning you'll need a THIRD job to break even.

I'll send you some energy-pills if you give me your address.

Jim said...

If I'm only making up the income that was lost, why would I be in a higher tax bracket. And if by some chance my marginal rate increased 5% on my last dollars earned, I wouldn't have a problem with that. It's certainly not going to keep me from working harder.

Only in your fantasy world would someone stop trying to earn more money because they might be paying an extra $5 on a hundred dollars of income.

Billiam said...

Only a far left mind could 'think' that since 45% of Americans pay no Federal Income tax, and the top 5% pay more than 40% of all Federal taxes, that the so-called rich aren't paying their fair share. Amazing. Truly amazing.

Beer, Bicycles and the VRWC said...

And notice the Lefty's never write an extra check to the government. Nothing stopping them if they think "more revenue" is necessary.

What's that you say? Oh...right....everyone else needs to pay more. Got it.

neomom said...

That would be "shared sacrifice" Deekaman.

The rich like Buffet say they should pay more, but somehow they don't - and we do.
