GOP Senators Threaten To Derail All Bills That Don't Cut Debt

So this will be another hurdle for HR 589 in the senate. I hope the crew of 42 get the memo otherwise we will have no shot at getting it thru the senate. So they have pay for it and cut the deficit. What next it has to sing the Star Spangled Banner....

Will Vitter & his buddies vote against *this* government funding??

Their letter doesn't mention the funding for the wars--

Of course Pat Toomey is one of the ten. The Koch brothers dumped tons of $$ into PA so that Toomey would defeat Sestak.

The Dems dropped the ball big time, in not dealing with the filibuster rule.
But then again, I new they would chicken out.

But now the filibuster rule works in the Dems favor.....

The Repubs can't get 60 votes in the Senate to repeal the Healthcare law or anything else they want to do.....

All they can do is try to destroy our govt's vital functions thru the budget & debt bills.....& the next budget bill.

*THIS IS THE QUOTE OF THE DAY*

"If Reid agrees to dedicate significant floor time to debate spending and debt well in advance of the federal government reaching our statutorily-mandated debt limit, then we'll withhold our objection." --Senator Vitter

Hypocrites. All they want is airtime on c-span.

... the three GOP senators who opposed the House's bill to cut nearly $60
billion
from the budget, on the grounds that the cuts didn't lower the
deficit enough
.

What in the hell! They want to cut more?

I thought 100 Billion in budget cuts was their original goal.

I honestly think that they want to ruin the country so that come election time in 2012 people will vote against the current administration.

I sincerely believe that they don't give a damn about the 98% of Americans' welfare.

We've just witnessed the news outlets - the Wisconsin protests were not anywhere in mainstream media at the beginning of the protests. I think that Moore finally made it to MSNBC online the next day and not sure about the other online reporting.

YET, top of the news everyday is the stuff that is going on in the Middle East and other BS fluff news. Who gives a s*** about Sheen, whatever Award that just happened, etc.
