Boehner Sets House Vote on Sandy Aid
Breitbart´s Big Government, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/3/2013 10:12:00 PM

After the House passed the bill that averted the fiscal cliff but didn’t cut the budget, House Speaker John Boehner reversed course on his earlier decision to avoid a vote in the House approving $60 billion for victims of Superstorm Sandy. Boehner had planned to adjourn the House before a vote could be taken, most probably because he was taking heat for his acceptance of the budget deal (Snip) Now that Boehner has changed his mind, a vote will be taken Friday on the first $9 billion in aid, and a second vote will be taken January 15 on the $51 billion that is targeted for the victims.

Comments:
Just when you think Boehner is going to keep a promise, especially after putting a steak in the hearts of the RINOs in NY & NJ, he plans this. See how they do smoke and mirrors with "two" votes?

Trust is such a hard thing to earn.

60 billion? All of the State of New Jersey isn´t worth that. Fraud and waste will eat up 59 of it.

So sad Boehner probably didn´t watch Gingrich tonite on Hannity. Newt knew exactly what to do. Pass the part that is to go directly to victims now. The only bill voted on should be a pork-free one, then put the rest back in the Senate´s lap.

Nine billion now; 51B later, supposedly for the victims. What about all those billions of pork that is currently in there?

When it was suggested that the public be allowed access to the beaches at the Jersey shore the fat guy snarked that he was against it. Said there are always people who want ´free stuff´.

How difficult is it for Boehner to state that he isn´t going to allow a vote on a bill that is loaded up with other spending, completely unrelated to Hurricane Sandy? How difficult is it to point out that others in Congress are cynically using this disaster to get more goodies for their states? Any of us could defend the decision to refuse to put this porked-up bill before the House. Why can´t the Speaker effectively speak?

Exactly 10. They just voted a man for Speaker who has no ability to ´speak´. But, what can you expect from Republicans. The country needs Newt Gingrich back in the House of Reps very badly. The House is the most powerful branch of the government, and the republicans run it like a dog house.

I´m all for private property but why should US taxpayers have to pay to restore someone´s private property? Also, how much of the NJ beachfront is public but inaccessible because some private homeowner will not allow the public to access the public beach vis his private path?

What would be so damn difficult about standing on the House floor and READING OUT LOUD a list of the ridiculous and non-applicable pork (along with the name of the sponsoring Senator) stuffed into this "Emergency" Aid Bill?

Boehner is the Speaker of the House. Thurd in line for the Presidency. Leader of the Republican Party. And apparently a spineless surrender monkey...

whay don´t they have insurance. The insurance commisioner should be recalled.


Also on the radio there was an analysis o f the POrk in the bill. Project Head Start gets $100 million. a fortune. How would onestate spend that much. they could issue chits for Denny´s(c) to every kid for a year and only spend $10 million.
as a huge deduction.

If it is your private property and you chose not to insure it, don’t ask for my tax dollars to fix it.

If it is New York or New Jersey State property and they chose not to insure it, tough luck.

It’s grow up time, folks. Do your own thing, at your own risk on your own time and your own dime.

I am still stunned that Boehnor was re elected speaker - he might just as well be obama´s twin brother. Why are most of the Rs in the House so scared to do what the people want? They become a race apart when they get into the halls of congress. The Sandy aid package should stand alone without any pork whatsoever. Give each family a pre-determined sum and let each decide how to go about rebuilding their lives. Set aside a pre-determined amount for restoration of roads and utilities, and leave it at that. People all over the country have already donated princely sums because that´s what you do to help a neighbor in need.

And it is to be paid for how?

Oh...just print more money.

But does that not dilute the dollar?

Oh. Never mind. Inflation is not the issue.

Maybe when the price of a loaf of bread hits $10.00.

But I´m not worried. The "rich" will pay for it.

Boehner , like many Republicans , often speaks out and it if it gets any coverage ,
it will be on C-SPAN at 3 am.
All during the election cycle, it was often posted-
" Why doesn´t Romney say this or that " ?
Romney had actually said this or that in campaign stops and it never got reported.
By either the media or the right wing talk radio.
The attitude by too many on the right is -" Because I didn´t hear it ... it wasn´t said ".
Until Republicans control the Senate , the presidency and the media ,
the options from the House are very limited.
Saying No to everything accomplishes nothing.
Passing bills in the House that only appeal
to the far right ,
die in the Senate and accomplish nothing.
Boehner does not have a magic wand ,
the Senate is controlled by the Democrats 55-45 ,
thanks to Tea Party candidates Akin, Mourdock,
O´Donnell,
Berg , Buck , Rehberg ,and Angle.
The Tea aka Ron Paul Party is killing the Republican Party with their unelectable Senate candidates
and yet , they´re the ones shouting the loudest because the Democrat controlled Senate
isn´t passing what they demand.

#24
The House of Representatives has special powers that no other branch has. It has the power--

1. To start all revenue (money) bills.

2. To impeach civil officers.

3. To elect a President if no candidate receives a majority of the electoral votes.

They can impeach Obama and the Senate would be forced to have a trial.
They can shut down the government.
They can cut off all regulators and regulation.
They can call a special investigation of the last election...and halt the installation of Obama.
The House has real power.
They can impeach Ruth Badger Ginsberg.
They can impeach the VP for groping.
They can put Hillary in jail,,,,,
if they had cajones,.

Yes #24,the meda filter is quite a problem. However, it doesn´t keep Boehner from communicating with other Republicans such as King and Christe and spelling out strategy so that they don´t go off half-cocked. Also, Fox doesn´t refuse to air Republican explanations. Boehner should have been in front of this issue and explained his position again and again until he broke through. Didn´t happen.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
