    House Moves Decisively During Time of Crisis

    With our economy still in trouble, it is good to see the Republicans in the House working hard to restore it. Today, they vote on House Continuing Resolution 13, which makes "In God We Trust" America's motto. America's motto yesterday was "In God We Trust".

    Good! If they're busy with that stuff, they can't pass stupid ass regulations that kill jobs and make doing business in this country even more expensive than it already is.

    They also can't remove "stupid ass regulations that kill jobs."

    Because, as we all know, the GOP hasn't done anything like present budgets:

    900 DAYS SINCE SENATE DEMOCRATS OFFERED BUDGET PLAN IS NATIONAL DISGRACE
    By Jeff Sessions & Paul Ryan
    October 14, 2011
    America is greatly in need of strong, competent leadership.

    Our nation’s total debt is now larger than our entire economy. Unemployment is painfully high and growth is painfully slow. Since taking office, the president has accelerated Washington’s reckless spending spree, has added trillions of dollars to the debt, and has refused to present a credible plan to put Washington’s fiscal house in order.

    Meanwhile, Congress is divided. Republicans control the House, Democrats the Senate. As required by law, House Republicans presented a budget in committee, brought it to the floor, and passed it earlier this spring. It was an honest, detailed, concrete plan to put our budget on the path to balance and our economy on the path to prosperity. But Senate Democrats, during this time of national crisis, failed even to present a budget plan — in open defiance of the law and the public they serve. Senate Majority Leader Reid said it would be “foolish” to have a budget. The reason for this evasion is clear: Democrat leaders in Washington think it is politically foolish to commit publicly to the kind of tax increases and health-care rationing that would be required to sustain their vision of ever-expanding federal government.

    This is the second consecutive year that Senate Democrats have disregarded the legally mandated budget process. In fact, this Sunday will mark the 900th day since Senate Democrats last adopted a formal budget plan as outlined in the Congressional Budget Act. It is a national disgrace.

    As we encourage our colleagues to fulfill their basic duties of governance, we will continue to advance proposals aimed at strengthening the budget process. It is time Washington played by the rules. Elected leaders have a legal — and moral — obligation to prioritize taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars with an honest budget. We’re approaching 900 days since Senate Democrats last took that obligation seriously.

    — U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama serves as the Ranking Republican of the Senate Budget Committee. U.S. Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin serves as Chairman of the House Budget Committee.

    OH WAIT, the House DID and the SENATE won't move on it... who controls the Senate? OH THE DEMS! **** Dan, you'd think before you post silly threads that make you look, well like the pro-union, pro-government left wing liberal hack you really are, (I notice you changed your lean back to "conservative", trying to be ironic are we? ) you'd make sure you didn't put up a softball to be wacked.

    And as for JOBS the GOP has done that too, guess what, it can't get by the SENATE...

    If you wish to continue to be "ironic", by all means, don't let me stop you.


    Oh hey, I heard your gal Nancy P is on record saying the Government should shut down non-union businesses and factories, I bet that got you to send her a little extra re-election money!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    At least they aren't voting on more spending. I'd rather they voted on the color of the grass then another UHC program that will devastate our economy.

    Meh, because showing up for work and doing nothing is the American way and jet setting back n forth across the country for the sake of filibustering really gets us moving in the right direction, besides it is a fabulous way to save money and fix our spending problems......lol

    Agree 100%. Tomorrow maybe a resolution to make Nov 13th national paper hat day. That could give a boost to paper producers. Instead someone will likely decide to give some bundler $75 million dollars to build a plant that tries to turn silver into paper.

    Yeah, they'll just give over more power to the President to run the government via executive orders so they can't get blamed come re-election time rather than try to find compromises to actually create policies.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I used to work construction. We had a guy that tried hard, but he never got anything right. Ask him to tie re-bar and it would fall apart as soon as you breathed on it. Eventually, we just gave him menial tasks....we made him a gopher. Congress is just like that. They can't get anything right. Let them be gophers.
