House approves clean debt hike
The Hill (Washington DC), by Pete Kasperowicz

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/11/2014 5:48:08 PM

The House passed a clean debt ceiling suspension on Tuesday — a vote that alienated dozens of Republicans and led some conservative groups to call for the removal of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). The bill was approved in a 221-201 vote, largely on the back of Democrats. Only 28 Republicans voted for it, while 199 voted no. Every Democrat except two voted for the clean debt bill backed by the White House and Democratic leaders in the House and Senate. The two defections were Rep. Mike McIntyre (N.C.), who is not running for reelection, and Rep. John Barrow (Ga.), who

The GOP is now the surrender party. Did the leadership vote for it? Boehner abstain?

What´s the point of a "debt ceiling" if it´s never respected and the Congresscritters are always raising it?

199 Republicans, 28 traitors, and 191 thieving Democrat scum.

I think you could actually do a blood purge and end up with a majority n the House anyway (Not that I´m encouraging such a th ing)

Boehner has nothing behind him.

My understanding was that the ´establishment pubbies ´ believed that the debt ceiling hike was a given (the government shutdown card seemed to be unplayable after last year´s PR fubar) but hoped that they could at least gain some spending cuts out of it. The ´true conservatives´ were unwilling to compromise so the GOP ended up with the debt hike but nothing else to show for it - that is, no spending cuts. I can´t really see how Boner could have played it differently.

Keep the focus on O-BomberKommieKare and its many horrors.

That´s the way to win the 2014 midterms.

Debt ceiling at this time is just a distraction...
and a tool for O-Bomber and the MSM to bash the GOP.

Better to bash O-Bomber for KommieKare... and Benghazi... etc

Boehner, canto and McCarthy and the twenty five other traitors have given Obama unlimited debt limit for one year. They are crazy. The CBO warned that increased debt increases chances of a severe financial crisis. Thanks Boehner, thanks Cantor, thanks McCarthy, I hope there is a jail cell in your future.

What happened to the Hastert rule? Though, look, the Senate will not pass a bill with spending cuts or any other attachment. Then, what? All the news shows will blame the Republicans for forcing the govt to live within is income (no default is possible).

The conservative base MUST be realistic. Not voting for the GOP in November gets you complete Democrat control and they can pass Single Payer to fix Obamacare. If that is what you want, then, by all means, don´t vote. But DO NOT whine afterwards.

It´s with a combination of sadness, disappointment, and bemusement that I recall the posts of the GOP apologists trying to convince us that Boehner will stand firm here .. no here .. um, here .. just you wait and see ...

Time to face reality. The GOP elites will not effectively stand up to the Democrat juggernaut. They will, however, use all means necessary to block any attempt at a conservative takeover of their party. They will not permit another Ronald Reagan to rise through the ranks. Never again. The only vehicle left for effective opposition is a new party out of their grasp.

After the Ted Cruz shutdown debacle,
the Republicans cannot afford any more stunts.
Boehner and the leadership are sick of the hysterics, unrealistic demands and threats of the far right.
I don´t blame him.
He´s obviously done with trying to herd cats.
Mark Levin and the tea party can officially
form their own awesome political party if they don´t like the Republican Party.
But, they´re too chicken.
They would rather complain and complain and scream RINO over and over and make empty threats.
Year after year after year.

Right now Boehner is lying there armless and legless demanding the Conservatives to come back where he can bite them.

The GOP no longer qualifies as the lesser of two evils. As far as I am concerned, no other issue is more important than shutting off the government´s ability to make slaves of future generations. We who are here today can choose to be cowards, like Boehner´s GOP, and look the other way. But government borrowing is a crime where the victims have no recourse, no voice, no opportunity to fight for their lives. It´s worse than cowardice, worse than betrayal, worse than slavery. Those responsible will never face any consequence for their crimes because they will be dead. Government borrowing is as close as you will ever get to the perfect crime.

Boehner was too involved with passing his amnesty bill. He probably forgot all about the debt ceiling. But in his defense, "leading" the Republican caucus is akin to herding cats.

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

Sen.

Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department!

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to 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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
