    Re: Senate Republicans force delay on spending bill

    I see some of you on here think this is a stand being made by Republicans to strop wasteful spending. Don't be so gullible. These are politicians we are talking about and this isn't about good government, this is about posturing and most importantly about getting more Republican amendments on the bill. If the Dems actually concede and allow the Republicans their amendments, this bill fly to White House like a rocket...pork and all. And both sides will be smiling when we aren't looking.

    Congress passes stopgap bill to avoid shutdown.

    Several Republicans who support the bill withheld their support of the procedural vote to force Reid to let other Republicans offer amendments, including ones to extend a local school voucher program in Washington, D.C., and to require lawmakers to approve their pay hikes instead of getting automatic cost-of-living raises every year.
    Spending Bill Stalls in Senate, 1 Vote Shy of Breaking Filibuster.
    In the Senate, five of the top 10 earmarkers were Republicans, including the overall leader, Sen. Thad Cochran (Miss.), the ranking GOP member of the Appropriations Committee.
    Profanity flies in heated Dem session.

    In fact, a solid bloc of Republicans—including some in the party leadership—are prepared to help pass the bill but remain shy of voting with Democrats until their colleagues have had a chance to offer more amendments.
    Trump Derangement Syndrome, or TDS, affects millions of right wing Americans. Symptoms include frequent use of "whataboutisms," irrational rants about how the DNC, GOP, MSM, FBI, NSA, CIA, and FB are all conspiring to get Trump, blaming Obama and/or Clinton for things Trump has done or is doing, and a bizarre admiration for Vladimir Putin. Known TDS vectors are Fox News and the @RealDonaltTrump twitter feed.

    Obama said "no pork, no earmarks, no lobbyists & transparency".

    So such Pork laden bills should be DOA when they reach Mr. Teleprompter's desk...

    ...But we now know he is an expert prevaricator.
    It's in his DNA, his training as an American Socialist.
    Words are tools. They mean nothing... it's how they sound at the moment that matters.

    Everything has en expiry date with Mr. Teleprompter... it seems the shelf life of his comments is about 10 seconds after the verbal diarrhea has flown from his orifice.

    So far he's said:
    1. Make Government Open and Transparent
    2. Make it “Impossible” for Congressmen to slip in Pork Barrel Projects
    3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public
    4. No more secrecy
    5. Public will have 5 days to look at a Bill
    7. We will put every pork barrel project online
    8. Most ethical administration.

    Whoops... "words... just words."

    Omnibus Spending Bill: Huge Spending and 9,000 Earmarks Represent Business as Usual
    9,287 Earmarks

    Although Democrats strongly criticized the proliferation of earmarks under Republican rule, they have made no serious efforts to pare them back. The omnibus bill spends $12.8 billion on 9,287 earmarks.[5] When combined with the early 2009 spending bills ($16.1 billion spent on 2,627 earmarks[6]), the 2009 total comes to 11,914 earmarks at a cost of $28.9 billion. This represents the second most earmarks—and the second highest cost—in American history.
    Pretty good President Pork.

    those of us who served, remember things like that.

    Hats off to all that served.
    Thank you can never be said enough.
    You folks are the best.

    The worst is why they voted to send troops to battle.

    They used their votes as 30-years of CYA on defense issues.
    Then they returned to their core values when the troops needed them to stand up for them most.
    To stand strong.
    To fight FOR them.
    To believe we have great men and women over there for us, great Generals that were trying to figure out how to do battle with cowards.

    "We lost".
    "Nazi's"
    "Terrorizing"
    "Suspend disbelief".

    From two presidential candidates, the Senate Majority Leader, and another party leader.

    Yeah... it must be a bitch having to live with being a defender of anti-American behavior and unAmerican representatives.

    Okay, and many of our Republican political leaders are right there with him with their pet projects. Which was my point. You painted this as the Republicans standing up to the out of control spending, I simply pointed out that as a "politics as usual", many Republicans are standing shoulder to shoulder with the Democrats on this massively out of control bill. They lack ONE Republican vote to make this happen. And that vote can be bought for about a dozen amendments or less.

    Yeah, Republicans are standing up to Obama's wasteful spending alright.

    It's called partisan derailment of yet another thread up here. Thank you for efforts to this end.

    How about focusing on the topic of the thread instead of playing along with crapping it up.

    Hey, I made a contrasting post regarding the OP. Why don't you go after that?

    I summed up my position quite well thank you, but you can keep complaining to avoid the obvious here......

    I didn't derail anything in that thread and I haven't avoided the obvious here...I've confronted it. You made an absurd assertion in the "prison rape" thread and I challenged it, as I do many of your posts. It was on topic. You simply made an off topic barb in this thread.

    So I take it you won't be discussing the OP any further, rather you'll be contented to continue derailment.

    Fair enough.
