    Congress Approves Bill To End Airport Delays

    ap friday:

    Congress easily approved legislation Friday ending furloughs of air traffic controllers that have delayed hundreds of flights daily, infuriating travelers and causing political headaches for lawmakers.

    The House approved the measure on a 361-41 vote, a day after the Senate swiftly agreed to the bill. The vote came as lawmakers prepared to leave town for a weeklong spring recess, a break that would have been less pleasant if they were confronted by constituents upset over travel delays.

    Republicans accused the Obama administration of purposely furloughing controllers to pressure Congress to lift $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts - known as the sequester - that took effect last month at government agencies.

    "The administration has played shameful politics with the sequester at the cost of hard-working American families," said Rep. Tom Latham, R-Iowa.

    The White House and Democrats have argued that by law, the administration has little room to decide where the cuts fall. The White House and Democrats want Congress to work on legislation lifting all of the cuts, which lawmakers noted have also caused reductions in Head Start preschool programs, benefits for the long-term unemployed and medical research.

    they had the money all along

    he was bluffing all along

    all the end-of-the-world angst

    all the chicken little clucks

    he wants the public to pay

    he wants to punish the taxpayer

    he promotes pain

    all for purple political purposes

    it's really perverse

    he's exposed

    he got called out in congress on thursday

    knuckle draggers discovered a HALF BILLION in his furloughed faa for SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAMS

    BY FRIDAY dem party leadership succumbed

    it was that fast

    spank

    all to push his puny little point

    HE NEEDS MORE MONEY

    !!!

    well, who doesn't, wilfred?

    find a way, phil

    manage, mrs mccaskill

    you are going to see dozens of headlines before unlucky 2013 is over describing how the obama white house is putting the pinch on THE MIDDLE CLASS

    call it A WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS

    "tax the rich" is today too thin

    it's cuz he already did that, january 1

    and there's nowhere near enough money there

    the professional leftists at politico parse it perfectly: "there’s simply not enough revenue to pull from top earners to truly tackle the nation’s deficit"

    “there’s only so much money you can get out of the upper-income brackets, the big money comes from the rank-and-file taxpayers”

    you really need to concern yourself with these things

    if you want to appear remotely responsible, y'know

    when's the last time you heard him utter the word, "invest?"

    did you hear about fisker this week?

    WH knew electric car maker Fisker was faltering: AP - CBS News

    this behavior is at bottom criminal

    it's at least, fiscally speaking, ultra wasteful

    another HALF BIL---pfft

    while his raison d'etre, his reason for arising, is: HE NEEDS MORE MONEY

    do you really hear all this as spin?

    if so, it's you, you've got yourself dizzy

    sit down and put your head between your knees

    according to the nyt yesterday, front page above the fold, barack obama's political appointees at doj and usda overrode career staffers in the depts to push the distribution of 90,000 cash settlements of $50,000 each, at least half of which, it appears, were blatantly fraudulent

    indeed, according to the nyt yesterday, page one, 6 weeks before the election, with 460M dollars of damages to distribute and not enough takers, "the agriculture dept instructed processors to call about 16,000 people to remind them that time was running out"

    the dept was outright "recruiting claims against itself"

    in pine bluff, arkansas, a policeman who admitted to filing a fraudulent claim against usda for discriminating against him in refusing him a loan, such that he was awarded 50K cold cash courtesy of eric holder and tony west, was NOT prosecuted because "singling out one individual raised questions of selective prosecution"

    “the defendant could go to the jury and say, ‘everybody else did this, why am I standing here?’" wrote us attorney paula casey

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/26/us...nted=all&_r=1&

    this is graft of the grossest degree

    the white house yesterday was not pleased that congress had found a way to manage a budget shortfall, y'know, with minimal pain

    it took a bi-partisan parliamentary revolt to get this done

    we're seeing it, bigtime, over obamacare, as well

    now, why would obamacare author max baucus and the grey lady at the ny times say such things?

    is it spin or is it you?

    anyone who ever voted for this man owes his friends and neighbors an apology

    ie, it's only gonna get worse, you better get out now

    Cutting spending: great in theory, not so much in practice.

    Congress must be listening to its constituents, the kind that has lots of money and whines a lot if it suffers any hardship.

    So where was the sainted GOP House with all those bills to stop the sequester. I mean, they must have passed hundreds of them, right?

    This, btw, is a long time legal strategy:

    in pine bluff, arkansas, a policeman who admitted to filing a fraudulent claim against usda for discriminating against him in refusing him a loan, such that he was awarded 50K cold cash courtesy of eric holder and tony west, was NOT prosecuted because "singling out one individual raised questions of selective prosecution"
    It's called settlement.

    Re: Congress Approves Bill To End Airport Delays

    april 18:

    There are two very different President Obamas.

    There’s the confident, uncompromising Obama who sought to shame and bully Republicans into submitting to his agenda of tax increases and sweeping gun reform. This version of Obama was dominant until one month ago.

    Then there’s the calmer, more compromising Obama — the one who has courted Republicans and taken on his own party with a call for (modest) reductions in entitlement spending. This version of Obama took command last month.

    Both are flailing.

    he spent a month talking guns

    he can't go green

    he can't touch immigration

    He stands a decent chance of getting an immigration deal. But as one influential Democratic adviser told us, that’s only because the president has largely stayed on the sidelines.

    he can't talk gay marriage cuz that crowd wants more and he's done

    what's left---universal preschool and cigarette taxes?

    and you're NOT embarrassed?

    he certainly doesn't want to talk about terrorism

    and j****

    in syria they crossed the red line, he says

    except they didn't

    it's a pink line

    there's not much left for him to embrace---except taxes

    HE needs more money

    why did president obama's usda make 16,000 phone calls (according to the nyt) to encourage americans to make false claims of discrimination against ag?

    why are there 16 zip codes in arkansas, alabama, mississippi and north carolina in which "the number of successful claimants against ag exceeded the total number of farms operated by people of any race?"
