Tea Party Group Puts Pressure On Boehner

March 29, 2011 by  

A prominent Tea Party activist has announced his intention to unseat House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) for compromising with Democratic leaders on the Federal budget.

According to FOX News, Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips said he is searching for a primary candidate to run against Boehner in 2012. Phillips accused the Speaker of the House of breaking his campaign pledge to cut $100 billion from the budget and agreeing to cut less than $61 billion.

Phillips said that eccentric actor Charlie Sheen makes more sense than Boehner because at least Sheen is "winning."

"If you don't live up to your promise, we're going to throw you out," Phillips told the media outlet.

Levi Russell, a spokesman for the Tea Party Express, said that Boehner is the "least of our worries," according to the news source. He admitted that Tea Party supporters may have set their expectations too high after the 2010 midterm elections, and they will continue to be disappointed until the GOP has control of the Senate and White House.

Earlier this week, Boehner sent a letter to President Barack Obama questioning his intentions in Libya. According to media reports, the House Speaker asked for clarification regarding "conflicting messages from the administration," and said that the American people deserve to know what the President's objectives are when he deploys United States military forces.

    My only question is which is bad- Mr. Boehner or comprimising? Would the Tea Party of been willing for him to cut nothing at all or nothing less than $100 Billion. Matters of honor and ideology are extremely important. They must be made firm and not be comprimised willingly or eaisly. However though I am no finanicial expert I would believe a matter of cutting spending is not an issue of great honor or suffering specifically if the cutting is at least 60 billion in an overall stated plan of 100 billion. Im simply saying their stated reason for unseating him is that he did not met the precise amount he stated. Comprimise is necessary at times to get things done. The more we demonize our opponents the harder it becomes to comprimise at all. Though I disagree with Mr. Boehner on most things political and financial I think he deserves more of a chance for cutting spending even if he didnt cut it to the precise amount he stated he would.

      They don’t want to hear that! No love for John here, but I’m with you jeremy.

        The problem dwarfs any type of compromise, and thats the Tea Party’s correct insight to whats going on. A 61 billion dollar cut, or even a 100 billion dollar cut, is like a seaman on the Titanic trying to bail out the incoming water with a pail, to keep it afloat. We were told by Boehner and the Republicans the budget has to be balanced, and then cut spending less than that balance in order to create a surplus, in order to be able to start reducing the national debt. The stated goals are to balance the budget, then create a surplus to pay down the debt. The CBO has projected this years deficit to be 1.65 trillion dollars, which Boehner’s and the Republicans cut in spending of 61 billion dollars is in actuality only .061 trillion dollars, and if they can get the Democrats to go along with these draconian and mean spirited cuts, as described by those Democrats, they will have effectively only cut the deficit to a new total of 1.589 trillion dollars, which will have to be borrowed to spend, and interest paid on in the next year’s budget. So when you talk of compromise of these amounts, you are really talking about business as usual, while the USA sinks in debt under the shadow of this years ice berg, Obama’s deficit.

        • Denniso

          It’s not Obama’s deficit,as Bush initiated the tarp bailout for the banks before Obama was even elected. This debt problem comes from the largest crash in 80 yrs and the necessity of stabilizing the economy,as well as the Bush tax cuts that will add a trillion $$ to the debt. The Repubs fought tooth and nail for tax cuts for the wealthy and now they whine about the rising debt partly caused by the cuts. When the economy crashes like it did,before Obama came in,tax revenues plummet because of the drop in economic activity.

          I’m glad to see the tea party wackos going after the GOP and starting a civil war w/in the party,but it doesn’t help the country climb out of the ditch we’re in. The Repubs main objective is to shrink gov’t to some mythical size they alone approve of,and the deficit is just the tool being used…of course they have no intention of addressing the mammoth military spending every year,larger than all other industrial countries combined…no waste there!!! $700 billion/yr.

          • http://Illinois'17th Old Henry

            Denniso:

            Tax cuts do not cause defictis. Spending causes deficits. It’s not their money. If you feel the guvernment is not receiving enough money, write them a check! There is a process for doing this. Contact the IRS and they will be glad to assist.

            Bush spent too much, no doubt. Howver, under the Kenyan spending has increase at a rate 27 times that of Bush. Also, remember the Stimulus”? Where did that money go? No one seems to know, but if we did a thorough audit of ACORN and the SEIU and UAW I am sure we would find most of it.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Leave it to denniso to try and make less than 1% of the total deficit look like it is massive!!! .6% isn’t even a proverbial drop in the bucket!!!

          • ValDM

            Denniso,
            The $100 billion budget cuts are a mere drop in the bucket; just a place to start. This $100 billion cut amounts to me cutting roughly 50 cents from my $2K budget each month. Not much; not enough. As for the military budget, go check out the welfare budget before you spout.

          • Denniso

            Try to be a little rational here…If you and the tea party cut absolutely everything you want,you might be left w/ a $2 trillion dollar budget…military,roads,police,border patrol,sewage/water plants,nuclear power plants,airline travel,maybe even social security,some education spending,etc.
            So how do you fund those things? Taxes,unless you want to privatise everything and have private companies bill you every month,which would be just like taxes. If you need to raise money to pay for even a shrunken gov’t you have to have taxes. If the taxes are too low to pay for even the smaller budget,then you would still wind up w/ a deficit and if the taxes are really low you could have as large a deficit as we now have.

            It’s the balance between taxes and spending that is the issue,and too little taxes or too much spending causes the problem. You and people like you are being used by the rightwing power brokers to orchestrate a move toward more oligarchy,more power and money for the top 5%,all the while using the misplaced fear of deficits for their fearmongering. Any country,especially us,can run deficits as long as they remain under control…the huge Bush tax cuts,two unfunded longterm wars,the also unfunded Medicare drug plan, and then the largest crash since the depression have all caused the problem. You can’t lay it on Obama,as he is the one trying to fix it.

          • Robin from Arcadia, IN

            Denniso… Those who are riding the ‘gravy train’ of welfare checks and government help will have to learn to do for themselves. Either the conservatives make the cuts and try to salvage what is left of our government/nation, or the progressives get their way and the country collapses anyway because it can’t be sustained the way it is going. It’s going to happen, sooner or later. If it’s sooner, we may have a chance to bounce back as a country. If it’s later, we’re doomed, all of us!

          • BigBadJohn

            Here we go again….

            Old Henry

            Bush inherited a 100 billion dollar deficit and turned it into a 1.5 TRILLION dollar deficit – a 1500% increase.

            Obama inherited a 1.5 trillion dollar deficit and turned it into a 1.8 trillion dollar deficit. Approximately a 30% increase.

            Obama is not/has not been near as destructive as Bush and the republicans!

          • BigBadJohn

            from Old Henry:
            “Tax cuts do not cause defictis. Spending causes deficits. It’s not their money. If you feel the guvernment is not receiving enough money, write them a check!”

            True enough, HOWEVER, Bush’s tax cuts were UNFUNDED – NO CUTS WERE MADE! If you want to cut taxes, you should be forced to make the same amount in cuts FIRST!!!! (of course cutting social security to pay for a tax cut for the rich would not be too popular…)

            We need a BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT ! If the politicians want tax cuts they need to implement spending cuts FIRST!
            If they want to invade a couple of foreign countries – they need to RAISE TAXES first!
            This would put a stop to the madness!

            And of course letting Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae run amok so “everyone can own a house” whther they could afford it or not, and having the banking and mortgage industry follow suit had nothing to do with it, right? I mean other than leading to the idea that we needed bail outs because the economy was imploding due to the sheer stupidity of thse ridiculous socialist policies that were brought to us by…wait for it….The Clintons and their very good pal Obama working tirelessly to make sure everyone had a house they couldn’t possibly pay for.

            Denniso you are singularly stupid if you think it started with Bush.

          • Bob from Calif.

            Hey Denniso,

            You should just quit your lying and spin. This is Obama’s economy! It sounds like you are not too happy with this economy either. As for cutting the government, I’m for cutting the hell out of it until it stops bleeding.

          • http://Henry Henry

            When politicians make a claim they are not able to keep, they see a tsunami coming to flush them out of their seat. The problem originates with a large segment of our public overlooking reality.
            The politicans feed us fake numbers to please our ears, however we
            always believe the newly elected reps will solve the problems instantly – not so fast- it takes a fast moving train a long distance to come to a halt and reverse the direction.Just look back when Mr. Bill Clinton and his team shifted to the Global economy – exporting many jobs and revenue Dollars. Well, many barns are empty today, as we are now beginning to see the true damage. The public must show a little more patience to correct the problems. Just watch the picture we have today – no parts from Japan for Boeing, GM,etc. effecting our
            fragile economy in a big way – no second source to keep the engine running. Let us force our newly elected reps. to engage our domestic economy again and curtail the global insanity. We must bring our own house in order without delay to create jobs plus confidence to reenergize the American enviroment. Hope and Change brought us demise.

          • Richard Pawley

            Denniso is stuck in an almost cult-like hatred for Bush that blinds him to everything else. It was not Bush who began the big spending, it was the Democratic 111th Congress that took over in 2006, and it is not even Obama who is doing all the spending now. It is the mostly Democratic 112th Congress and their pseudo-Republican counterparts. There are not enough members of the Tea Party to stop the spending, so get ready for HORRENDOUS INFLATION, several hundred percent, the result of the spending of money the nation doesn’t have, cannot borrow, and cannot take away from those who do not have it. Countries used to just print more but we don’t even have to do that any more. As I said in “THE LAST DAYS OF THE LATE GREAT UNITED STATES and the Great Famine that Followed”, all we have to do now is enter the numbers into a computer, or actually many computers. No one is going to escape unaffected and it will probably be blamed on whoever the new president is who is elected in 19 months. Those who don’t prepare for all this are going to suffer and it doesn’t matter what party they belong to. May God bless all who read this because no one else is going to be able to help.

          • Denniso

            Let’s see…I ‘have an almost cult like hatred for Bush’ because I said that he initiated the bank bailouts? I was in favor of the TARP because we were in an economic tailspin. Bush also pushed two foreign wars that he didn’t finish,costing at least a trillion $$ and probably more. He pushed through the trillion $$ drug plan for medicare,unfunded again. He also cut taxes at a time of war, that amount to another trillion $$ over a decade…the majority of the benefits going to the top dogs in the country. The national debt doubled under Bush.

            All the while Bush was busting the budget we heard almost no peep from the rightwingers who now are so vociferous in their attack on Obama and the Dems,even on the handful of moderate(sane)Republicans.

            Name one large budget item that the Dem congress passed on it’s own when they regained power in ’06.

            You’re fearmongering about inflation reaching ‘several hundred percent’ is laughable and absurd. It won’t happen! We are not a third world country and we apparently can deal w/ economic crises just a bit better than they can. Even the most severe inflation in memory here was ‘only’ about 18% in the early 80′s. Several hundred percent??
            You should know better than that…

          • http://Cut30.com Good4ya

            Interesting enough. Something you and so many who take this line seem to thoughtfully forget.

            President Bush called Sen.John McCain and Sen. Barrack Obama to the Whitehouse for discussions on what ultimately to do in this concocted “emergency” brought on by lending money to people who would NEVER pay it back.

            Bush reasoned that he was leaving office, so he wanted to give weight to the two men, one of whom would become President

            Obama is the one who came out of the meeting letting everyone know that “HE” and his democrat buddies had forced the issue and their will upon it.

            Most of America has a McDonalds memory. I DO NOT!

            We are getting the will of Obomber then, and now.

            Dennison , our way of life is not being destruyed by dems. it is our old faithfull the gop , they gave away too much to corporate America , they get refunds without paying taxes and that has to be stopped. they the reps. fought tooth and nail for tax breaks for ceos. which they did not need.all of the money they received should be payed back with interest , that money helped get them out of the mess they did to themselves. Now allof the profits,and they are just getting more, this money they are claiming as bonuses and which i might add are huge and should be demanded back by the dems. this is a disgrace and shows how much they care for the middle class (absolutely nothing)obama should tell the gops. NO for anymore moneyand and mean what he says. We are being robbed

          • Denniso

            Any company that was bailed out by taxpayer money should have been prohibited from giving large bonuses or pay raises until all money was paid back entirely. The heads of Fannie and Freddie should have seen large pay cuts as well,and not recieved millions in pay.

        • Bud Tugly

          The Tea Party is in danger of rapidly evolving into an American version of the Taliban.. utterly inflexible in thought, utterly intolerant of those who disagree, incapable of compromise that may lead to pragmatic solutions of problems, and convinced that they have the sole access to the grace of the supreme being.

          We need leaders that love our country more than they love their party or things will continue to stagnate in such a polarized society.

          • JeffH

            Bud, I can only disagree with your analogy. Not even close!

          • Kate8

            Bud – That is just utterly absurd.

            The TeaParty want a return to Constitutional government. You know, the LAW OF THE LAND. Those of us who believe in preserving our Republic (that is, those opposing the TRUE Taliban on the Left) need to keep hound them and not let them get by with ANYTHING.

            The problem is, I think, that anyone in Boehner’s position is likely to do the same thing he does. When you’ve got the “masters of the universe” threatening on one side, and you and me nagging on the other, which of us do you think he fears most?

          • http://Cut30.com Good4ya

            Bud,

            If what you say, “…utterly inflexible in thought, utterly intolerant of those who disagree, incapable of compromise that may lead to pragmatic solutions of problems, and convinced that they have the sole access to the grace of the supreme being” is true, you would not be posting this crap. If it hits the fan, meaning those of us for freedom have been pushed as far away from freedom as we will tolerate, you will know it.

            It won’t be pretty, and you will lose as much as we will. America will never be what she has been and would be. We will all suffer because you want to rule over us free men (and women).

            Live your life as YOU want. Leave My life, My freedom and MY income alone.

            Funny. I had a guy I work with screaming at me for being one of those Republicans that want poor people to die.

            I asked him, since we just finished a United Way campaign at work, I’d bet I give more in a week than he does in a month. His face got redder than it was before, and he went stomping off. He informed me a couple of weeks later that I gave more in a week than he did in a year. He didn’t give a dime. Typical liberal! He wanted to give until it hurt…. ME! He has started weekly contributions.

            He seems a little less liberal now! Why? He walks the walk instead of talking the talk!

          • http://att.net joan l mcgrath

            Bud Tugly, As i said it is the gop not the dems. they are getting this money by hook or by crook for corporate America not the middle class, the more they try and blame OBAMA the sillier they look , they must think we are going back to the middle ages for all of this so called deficit they keep talking about , we would be in a lot better shape if they evened out the taxes instead of giving the big wigs tax breaksand getting them returns on taxes they never paid. Something is very far wrong and OBAMA will have to call their bluff and deny everything they ask for just like they did to him and the dems.I hope OBAMA STANDS FIRM AND JUST SAYS no no no !

        • Richard Pawley

          Can the Socialists and the Progressives and the Democrats and the few RINO Republicans be so blind that they do not see that this excessive spending is going to bring down our county, destroy much of what we have and think of when we think of the United States of America? Scholars have long wondered why there seems to be references in the book of Revelation in the Bible to the European Union (the New Roman Empire) and many of the other players in the modern world but no references that can be even stretched to include the United States. Nothing. Could it be that as some thinkers in the Soviet Union have concluded, our nation will break apart into several countries after the irresponsible spending of congress causes the dollar to collapse to a tiny fraction of it’s current worth caused by the biggest tax of all (and the most hidden one): INFLATION! When the spending of money we don’t have by congress causes this terrible inflation and other counties are destroyed as well does anyone think the world will forget? I do not know the future but will we be the first nation in the history of the world to just keep printing money (now over $70,000 MILLION DOLLARS a month our of thin air) and have it end well? I think not! We are borrowing $4,000 MILLION DOLLARS a day, yes, every day, mainly to pay the interest on money we have already squandered. If we take all the money of anyone who earns over $20,000 a year – every last dime from everyone – it still will not be enough to keep our cities and our states and the Federal Government going, and still the insane people in Washington, stoned on the drugs they have been using since their hippy days, think we can INCREASE spending! We have little time, a few years I hope, but prices of food are increasing and shortages are already appearing in some places. “Earthquakes in many places, wars and rumors of war, disease and famine, and this in not yet the end” said Jesus Himself, so get ready. Just today, yesterday now, I got an email from a college professor and he said that only the Amish and the Mennonites are prepared. They live the simple life of a century and a half ago and if I were a betting man I would say we too will be living like, most likely before this decade is over, and certainly before the next one is, if the spending in Washington continues as it has been. May God help us because no one else is going to do so.

      Boehner needs to be GONE. He should never have been made Speaker in the first place. He is a DC elitist who is completely immersed in the sewer. He has no spine and is simply a go along and get along self-serving piece of fecal matter.

      He should have gone after 200 to 300 billio in cuts and then agreed to 100 to 150 billion.

      This guy publically stated that he thinks Obama is quilified because the state of HI says they have Obama’s BC. HI cannot find it. Boehner is a fool, or worse.

      Boehner should have at the very least introduced a Letter of Impeachment last week for Obama’s actions in Lybia. Little Joey Biden threatened to impeach Bush if he had done the SAME thinkg in Iran.

      • Mr. Freedom

        Isnt Boehner, by law, to start impeachment against BHO?

        And that is what they will not show us. Most likely the reason they won’t show it is because it’s worthless.

        BTW, did you see where Trump is demanding he produce his BC? Trump just produced his. It took him an hour to get it.

      • James

        Old Henry, has got it right!!! I live in Ohio and I remember when Boehner was campaigning for his first term in office. He was going to the gun shows, shaking everybody’s hands and telling them that he was pro gun and we (people of the USA) should stop the gun grabbing politicians. ONE OF THE FIRST BILLS THAT HE SIGNED WAS FOR MORE RESTRICTIVE GUN CONTROL!!!! NO OUTCRY, NO TRYING TO STOP IT, HE JUST SIGNED IT. That was the last time I voted for Boehner.
        I was very sorry for the free people of the US when he was made speaker of the house. As the song says, ONE MORE BRICK IN THE WALL.

    • Bob

      The democrats are the most evil organization to ever exist and to compromise with evil is evil. The budget needs to be slashed, not cut and the only way to do that is to reduce the scope of government, cut government compensation, get rid of public employee unions, and end welfare. This is the only chance America has to survive. The democrats care nothing for America, they are only interested in increasing their power and turning America into another socialist pig sty full of socialist pigs.

      • Mick

        Bob…I can’t argue with that !!
        Slash is the adequate word for America’s welfare , COMPROMISES is what got this country in the miserable shape it is today.

          Old H – It’s documented fact that the communists hijacked the democrat party in the mid-20th century, with the intention of taking down America.

      • Jeremy Leochner

        Bob I know Democrates who dont fit that mold. Just because you disagree with a parties ideas or beliefs dose not make them evil. Believing in welfare or unions dosen’t make one evil. Thats part of the problem. There are good people who are democrats who want to get things done just as there are good people who are republicans who want to get things done. But how can anyone get anything done if their calling each other evil. At some point you have to comprimise on some issues if not this one. If comprimising with democrats is evil how can you make any comprimises at all. For the sake of argument if you agree with any policy or idea of any democrat does that not make you evil. The problem with calling an opponent evil is that it becomes rather awkward when you actually do agree or sympathise with them.

        • Kate8

          Jeremy – There are good and evil people across the board. What matters is the agenda being promoted by the party.

          If one is not, himself, evil, but supports and evil agenda, what does that make him, besides ignorant?

          Today, both parties are infiltrated and controlled by the same forces. One brazenly pushes ahead against the common good, and the other pretends to be concerned about it. No matter who’s in power, the same agenda moves forward.

          • Kate8

            that’s supposed to read “supports an evil agenda”.

          • Jeremy Leochner

            I suppose Kate. But the agenda of the democratic party is stated on their websites and in their party platforms-civil rights, open government and immigration reform to name a few. It may be a party statment but there are good people who support such ideas out of a genuine desire to do good. I figure what the good people are pursuing is the best measure of what the party is pursuing or should be pursuing. You may feel free to disagree with them on the merits, practicality, or perhaps morality of the policies they propose but thats a far cry from people willingly or even unwillingly supporting an evil agenda if they genuinely believe in the good of their party. I can undertand and respect the argument that the people of a certain party have good intentions but make bad choices on how to do good, but I disagree with the idea of people willingly supporting an unjust ideology without regard for its consequences. I disagree with people but that dosen’t make them evil.

            Jeremy – the democrats have always promoted their agenda by selling unwitting people on the idea that it’s for their own good, or “for the children”. They always feign compassion toward useful voting blocks.

            Most of us don’t want government deciding what’s for our own good. And it never is, anyway. It’s for more power…theirs, and loss of more freedom for us.

            It doesn’t matter what the publicly stated goals of the party are. That’s just a sales pitch. Look, instead, at who their ideas are drawn from. You will find mostly communists and socialists as their role-models.

            What they say never matters. Results matter. Always watch what the other hand is doing.

            I think Jeremy is under 30, a graduate of our public screwel system and possibly a public university. He has been force fed this crap for many years by the communists running rampant in the system. He is also, as a lot of young folks are, idealistic and thinks it’s all tuchy-feely-fuzzy-warm and cuddly. Hopefully he will eventually gain the strength to remove his head from his rectal socket and join the real world.

IF THEY WERE TO EVEN OUT THE TAX FOR EVERYONE THE DEFICIT WOULD BE CUT IN HALF, JUST TAKE AWAY BREAKS FOR CORPORATIONS AND MAKE THEM PAY TAXES LIKE ALL americans do and do not let them get returns on taxes when they do not even pay them and have them pay for the mess they got everyone into instead of benefitting with their BIG BONUSES. Allthat garbage about lowering the deficit, what they are doing is taking away good programmes and filling the corporations with the money they stole from schools etc.Where are the jobs they promised?that is one of their lies .THE RICH GET RICHER AND THE POOR GET POORER THANKS TO YOUR WONDERFULL REPUBLICANS.

      You’re right, it is petty to base their disgust on the minutia of clawing back a few pennies from an avalanche of debt. The disgust should be spread wide for these ‘spineless’, unprincipled, lying, pandering boobs. They have done nothing to slow the destruction of America and our posterity. Our nation was not formed by consensus We will NEVER recover our nation by by compromising with the destroyers. They are elitists that hold firm in their misbegotten belief that they are above the mess they created for us.

      Quibbling over sixty billion or 100 billion is nonsense. Either amount is a drop in the bucket when considering our massive debt. That debt increased 228 billion in the single short month of February. It’s past time for politicians get serious about the problem, and “Boner” is failing to do so.

    • wandamurline

      Unfortunately, they cut 6 billion the last session and on the day they cut 6 billion, the government spent 72 billion. I don’t think we are making any progress, and 100 billion is not any better. Personally, I would like to see the government shut down for a couple of weeks … all employees on unpaid leave…then maybe the Demorats would get a clue that they are destroying our country….or maybe that is what they want to do…it sure seems that way. Leave the only workers that handle social security and the military pay working, and the others can go home and eat pizza and drink beer. We have got to get a reality check here. This is not Boehner’s fault…for the last two years, he has not had a say in anything … as a matter of fact, Obama’s office has been closed to all republicans on anything, especially health care. It is going to take a little time to make drastic changes…if we continue on the 3 week resolutions and get 4 to 6 billion each time, by the time the end of the year gets here, we will have until August 31st, and at that time from my calculations of every three weeks we could reach 84 billion plus the 10 billion already cut…94 billion and that is close to the 100 billion they promised. At least the Republicans can nickle and time the Demorats to death and make it their fault that we don’t have a budget for 2011, because they were must too busy passing laws that screwed the American citizens.

      The real problem is that House Speaker John Boehner is a career politician who is so afraid of loosing his career he will not act in the best interest of this country and the consistences he is supposed to represent. The spending from this administration is unsustainable. Do something about it. Mr. Obama is defying the constitution, do something about it. Mr. Obama is giving the one finger wave to the American Public and Congress, do some about it. Yes the last administration also did things I do not agree with, but not to this level. Fix the CURRENT problems and get this country back on tract. The parts of the economy and government that are bankrupt are the socialist parts. Open your eyes and look. The US government has taken money by force from the current people, they have an obligation to fulfill those promises, but the system is unsustainable. Get this government back to the CONSTITUTIONAL responsibilities they have and replace the socialist programs with something else that gets the government out of everyone’s business. 401Ks are and idea because they belong to the people and someone like LBJ, a democrat can not take the money and replace it with 0 treasury bonds like was done with Social Security. The money can be left to you wife nd children when you die and other reasons. There are other ideas out there. Get the career politicians out of our government.

    • Patriot01

      A lie is a lie. One cannot balance their personal budgets with any form of compromise. Do a partial cutting results in partial gains and does not even come close to solving the initial problem especially if the problem is an enormous number as is our national debt. Ask anyone who has excessively and continues to use their credit cards and pays only the interest but does not cease the spending. Ask them if overall principle gets smaller or the amount they owe is decreasing. Compromise is a means and a word used to speeding up a pending fiscal disaster.

  • s c

    Boehner, hardcore Republicans and everyone on the ‘other’ side of the aisle in Washington need to realize that compromise is an obscene word. In Washington, someone who jumps at a chance to compromise is probably someone who has no standards. Is Boehner a coservative or a Republican? It’s a fair question, and we deserve to know the answer.
    It may be that Boehner has already offended millions of people who have a hard time seeing any difference between RINOS and Republicans. If Boehner isn’t willing to stand up to this bozo administration or twist Republican arms, then he needs to be out of Washington and out of a job.
    Just because Boehner is currently the Speaker doesn’t mean he can’t be replaced. He needs to realize that. If he thinks he has immunity, he’s the wrong man for the job.
    No politician can afford to act like a conservative one day, a ‘Republican’ the next, and God knows what else in the following days. Haven’t we yet had enough back-stabbing, worthless weasels?

        Well, the Republicans, at least the idiots currently serving in the two houses of Congress, are not conservatives. The Republican party hasn’t been a conservative party for, at least, 20 years. Probably longer. I’m not even sure about the recently elected TEA party candidates. They don’t seem to be doing much to help revive the economy that Bush helped to ruin and then Obama did the coup de gras on it and totally destroyed it. Rand Paul, for example, ran his campaign decrying earmarks. Then, after being elected, and before he even took office, said some earmarks are okay and he would support them. Scott Brown was backed by the TEA Party and what does he do? Like John McCain, he votes mostly with the Democrats. I’m not so sure the TEA Party is all it’s cracked up to be. Their track record on candidates they have supported isn’t that great. At best, the Republicans are left leaning moderates. You just can’t trust ANY politicians. They are all a bunch of lying scumbags.

        • wandamurline

          Scott Brown was elected and helped by the Tea Party because it was him or another democrat in that office. We were aware that he probably was a RINO. The main reason he had our help was to show Massachusettes that a Republican (probably in name only) could be elected despite the fact that they are so democratic. We knew that he was a weak candidate, but it was a slap in the face of the Democrats in Washington to have someone called a Republican be elected to the seat of the former corrupt elists Senator Kennedy. It was a morale issue. Now, Mr. Brown will come up for election again, and when he does, he will have a conservative running against him and insofar his record of voting is sooo bad, he will not have the backing of the Tea Party on his next quest, because we are holding everyone we helped into office accountable for their actions.

        A conservative is someone who wants to reduce the size of the government and cut all expenses that go to programs not santified by the Constitution. A Republican is a member of the GOP.

      Politics is the art of compromise. The current crop of new in Congress, those TPers elected by massive influx of corporate, foreign and domestic donors etc will eithr learn to play the game of politics or weaken the GOP further than what the Party of No is currently.

      The question TPers need to answer is…in their zeal to demand massvie cuts in budgets, cuts which aim not at the corporate tax code or any program which the wealthy have a subsidy from…can they show any validity to their argument thier way is the better way?

      Look at portugal, GB, Ireland, Greece, Japan in the 90s, etc … they all pursued a program of cuts to social programs keeping intact the havens for corporations and the wealthy. Aint doing so hot today are they?

      Until the TPers or anyone from either aisle can come to reason, and begin targeting what Obama has asked for…ending corporate subsidies and having the wealthy pay their fair share…I won’t be impressed.

      When the TPers and the Right break away from their corproate/welthy Masters…that is when they will be able to garner support more than the extreme wealthy, fringe groups and 1/3 of the population who are easily led and will believe anything told to them by their Masters.

          Correct with your observation Henry, They’ve bought the package that was offered to them by the wealthy, lock, stock and barrel.

          They have been sold a package of goods by very able astute salesmen.

          It’s human nature, the average guy loves to have someone to look down on someone, it’s elevating, and nice to know that you are not seen as on the bottom. And then you also have the power to kick them about and blame them for you’re problem. If you attempt to kick the wealthy around they tend to fight back. It’s no fun to get smacked around, even if you are right, you lose confidence and creditability.

The beliefs they are now esposing so effectively are what they have believed for most, if not all, of their lives. No one has fed them this ideology and led them around. This idea of smaller government is a firmly held belief. Until recently they just did not know there were so many other like-minded individuals. It started small as the first revolution did and has grown as more folks come to the realization of the mess we are in and the need to correct it.

            You seem to have no answer to this out-of-control opressive facsist-like government. If you feel so strongly that DC is on the correct path please send extra money to them with a check.

            Exactly Old Henry. The association with the tea party as “dupes” for the “wealthy” is not surprising considering the full scale attack from the left against them and is entirely hypocritical at best since you cannot discern between the parties as far as wealth is concerned since almost everyone on the political level, are extremely wealthy, dems and republicans alike.

            Ah yes BBJ, the Gates Foundation. Hearing about the Gates Foundation, a philanthropy founded by Bill and Melinda Gates, typically gives most folks a case of the warm-and-fuzzies. After all, the organization devotes millions of dollars a year to combating AIDS, global poverty, and hunger, among other causes. So it seems unlikely, then, that the organization would be the target of a huge coalition of angry activists.

            The groups allege that the Gates Foundation’s Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) project is — gasp! — just a ruse for supporting industrial agriculture.

            “A handful of large-scale farmers and transnational agribusiness corporations, like Monsanto and Syngenta, may be the only real beneficiaries of AGRA,” CAGJ wrote. “In the words of a representative of the Kenya Biodiversity Coalition, ‘AGRA is poison for our farming systems and livelihoods. Under the philanthropic banner of greening agriculture, AGRA will eventually eat away at what little is left of sustainable, small-scale farming in Africa.”

            The Gates Foundation bought 500,000 shares of genetic modification giant Monsanto, with the shares worth about $23 million. Even more concerning is the fact that the Foundation recently teamed up with industrial ag behemoth Cargill on a $10 million project to “develop the soya value chain” in Mozambique. For a Foundation that claims to invest in small farmers, it has some pretty major industrial ag bedfellows.
            http://news.change.org/stories/activists-protest-gates-foundation-for-pushing-gmos-on-africa

            Then there is Bill Gates himself who projects an image of a benign philanthropist using his billions via his (tax exempt) Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to tackle diseases, solve food shortages in Africa and alleviate poverty. In a recent conference in California, Gates reveals a less public agenda of his philanthropy—population reduction, otherwise known as eugenics.

            In a speech titled, “Innovating to Zero”, Gates said, while talking about the idea of reducing manmade CO2 emissions worldwide to zero by 2050, “First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

            In plain English, one of the most powerful men in the world states clearly that he expects vaccines to be used to reduce population growth. When Bill Gates speaks about vaccines, he speaks with authority. In January 2010 at the elite Davos World Economic Forum, Gates announced his foundation would give $10 billion (circa €7.5 billion) over the next decade to develop and deliver new vaccines to children in the developing world.

            Gates and Buffet…yeah, right!

            Jeff I read your post, it is completely slanted to discredit any good that has come from the Gates foundation. Definitely a FOX news slant to the truth.

            As far as reduced births, let me ask you a question. Do you think it is good, right, just and fair for third world countries to over populate themselves to the point of starvation?
            Do you think it is better for children to starve in the streets than to never have been born?

            Now read Gates actual quote:
            “The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

            You are focusing on one word and not the rest of the statement. He is making a statement that if we focus on health care and reproductive service – BIRTH CONTROL – we can lower that number.

            But because the conservative talking heads told you to only see the negative – you believe them.

            The single biggest problem the world faces is over-population. I guess you prefer the the conservative solution, start a couple of wars to kill millions and keep populations in check.

            And you consider yourself Christian – ya right….

        jovi anus:

        This is hard to answer since you have so much bull in it but I’ll try.

        Can the TP show any validity to their argument that their way is the better way? Can the Democrats? So far it isn’t even close. As Oblama says, it’s time for a change. It can’t hurt to cut government, now can it? Or are you saying that if they can’t prove they are right, then we have to continue to use the failed Democrat way?

        GB, Portugal, etc. pursued a program of cuts to social programs? Really? If they did, why are they having to cut them now? Could it be – horrors! – that they didn’t cut after all? I seem to remember some serious strikes and violent demonstrations in several of those countries due to an attempt to cut these things.

        So you won’t be impressed if they won’t target what Oblama asks for. Well, I would be. In fact, I’ll vote for any that will avoid what he wants. I would be delighted to see them take away what he wants!

        Most Tea Party people are NOT corporate followers. Most are middle class – just like I am. I seriously doubt that any of them have corporate masters. I know that I don’t.

        And the 1/3 of the population that is easily led are those who will do whatever the liberals want as long as they can continue to get their ‘free’ money that actually comes from my taxes.

        • JeffH

          45caliber, you’re wasting your breath on the anti-Tea Party’ers. They’ve swallowed the hype from the left stream media about the Tea Party people and can’t begin to fathom what the average, everyday normal American Tea Party people actually stand for.

            They’ve swallowed the hype from the left stream media about the Tea Party people and can’t begin to fathom what the average, everyday normal American Tea Party people actually stand for.

            *****************

            No it is very clear what you all have swallowed from FOX.
            Let me summarize:

            ALL DEMOCRATS ARE EVIL.
            ALL DEMOCRATS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF THE NATIONAL DEBT.
            ALL DEMOCRATS WANT TO TAKE YOUR PERSONAL LIBERTIES AWAY

            Even though it is so far from the truth to be laughable, considering republicans were responsible 9 trillion of the 12 trillion dollar national debt up to 2000. Considering that BUSH and the republicans took more personal liberties away than ALL PRESIDENTS COMBINED.

            Now if the tea party wanted to end all military campaigns, push a balanced budget amendment and come up with a more fair tax system – I would be 100% with them. But all they want is an ALL REPUBLICAN government – mark my words, if they get that, they will bankrupt the country and empty the treasury into their own greedy pockets. Just like they did when they controlled everything from 2000-2006.

          • JeffH

            BigBadJohn, you’ve been drinking the gruel haven’t you. I suppose you’re one of the people that also believe this too about the Tea Party. “The Tea baggers and the Republican party have shown, they are the true terrorists of our nation. Round them up now.”

            You should be chearing the Tea Party. The Tea Party does not control any organs of government, or even sport a single federal elected representative under its name. Until the 2010 elections, in fact, liberals controlled all federal organs of government (putting aside the difficulty of identifying the ideological leanings of the federal judiciary and how those ideological leanings might influence what could be called “federal policy” through the judiciary — but even here, President Obama’s nominations to the federal judiciary have been strikingly liberal). Relatively speaking, liberals are completely in control, not Republicans or conservatives, and certainly not the Tea Party.

            The ordinary folks and grandpas and PTA vice presidents that comprise the Tea Party are overwhelmingly people of good will. And in any event, surely the left wouldn’t forget its own extremist infiltration during the Bush years.

            Tea Party-endorsed candidates and commentators have been unapologetic in their disdain for establishment politics. That has energized American politics with both a refreshing fright to the establishment, and a political naiveté. The Tea Party, as well as Republican electoral success in 2010, is a direct result of a remarkably successful liberal agenda.

      Boehner was / is the wrong man for the job. It is telling about the Repbblican House that they would elect him Speaker to begin with. He is one of those “Republicans” who ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM, NOT THE SOLUTION.

        Especially when he can’t stop crying….

    • JeffH

      s c, I’ve on Boehners mailing list and send him emails fairly regularly on the issues at hand. To me, it’s important to let him(them Republicans)see that some of us are paying attention and remind him why he’s there in the first place and that he, as well as any other Republican or Democrat can be replaced by us, the voters. I remind him that e works for the people, not the government and can be replaced.

      Here is a recent letter I sent to Boehner and I urge everyone to do the same.

      Honorable Speaker John Boehner,

      I’m sending you this message as an American concerned with the financial health of our nation for the long term which means to me and a great majority of fellow Americans who’ve entrusted our future with yourself and your fellow Republicans that there is no room to compromise with the ideology of big government and big spending any longer. I ask that you not cave in to any concessions that may impede the recovery of America’s financial future which means “no compromise” to Sen. Reid on the defunding of Planned Parenthood.
      Stand up for Americans, not the special interests of phony politicians whose only focus is run away spending on programs such as Planned Parenthood and repaying the debts of their special interest partners at any cost.

      May I remind you that you, the Republicans, and the Democrats have been employed by the citizens to represent “us” and no one else.
      The federal government has specific duties to fullfill based on the US Constitution, not special interests or special needs of corrupt politicians. You are here to represent the citizens of the United States of America and no one else.

      I appreciate the time and effort that you have spent to read this letter and wish you success in the recovery of the United States of America and your efforts to return America back to the people.

      With all due respect,

    I think the Tea Party should work to replace the Republican Leaders, Boehner, Cantor and others, who have abandoned their promises to put the brakes on the out-of-control expansion of the Federal government. In addition to their failure to make meaningful cuts to the federal budget, they abandoned their constitutional responsibility by letting Obama commit an act of war against Libya without a declaration of war by congress. Unless we undo the damage to our constitutional republic inflicted by democrats and republicans alike over the past 100+ years, we cannot hope to avoid a catastrophe.

    • Harold Olsen

      I’m glad you did not say that they abandoned their principles because I’m not sure they, or any politician for that matter, have any to abandon. I will say this, though. Politicians seldom disappoint me. I automatically assume that anything they say is a lie and any promise they make they won’t keep. On rare occasions, though, one will pleasantly surprise me by doing what he said or promised. Though, most of the time, when Democrats do the right thing, they consider it a mistake and they apologize and try to “correct” what they did.

    It makes you wonder if these RINO’s just don’t get it, or if it is something else that drives them. At first I was pleased with what I thought I saw in John Boehner. But as I watched him show signs of willingness to give in on some points of reducing the deficit, I began to think of him as a RINO.

    I really do fear that this nation has but a very very short time to deal with our crippling debt, not forgetting the myriad of other problems — the moral and spiritual deficits being the most significant. It seems like we just can’t find enough “good men (includes women)” to represent us who will put their foot down and say: “This craziness stops here, now!”

    I really hope that we still will have elections by 2012 so that we can get the TEA PARTY mentality into Congress.

    One final thing. God has been and always be our only real hope for the survival of this nation. PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICA and live like we mean it.

    • bob wire

      Oh ! I think that they “get it” alright. They are just not sure as to what to do about it. It’s more of a matter of Ideology meeting Reality, while attempting to keep up “appearances” of being a person to your word.

      This process of “demonizing” will only go so far and work so long before it is tuned out and becomes less and less effective. Then what shall we do? Where will it end? Governor Walker has painted himself into a corner with less and less wiggle room to play with. If he’s to be your poster boy for sound, effective government, I hope you brought your sack lunch because this is going to take a spell to iron out all the details.

          • Bob

            50% of Americans don’t pay taxes – to which party do you think most of those 50% belong? And I didn’t realize that all those who fought our wars are democrats because most of the soldiers I know are conservative who despise lieberals. As for as paying taxes, it is democrats who should pay most of the taxes because it is democrats who are tax consumers through welfare, government employment, public works projects(unions), and social spending for EEO and Affirmative Action programs. And don’t call them my “Fellow Americans” because they are traitors who are trying to turn this country away from freedom and towards slavery under socialism. Finally, civility in speaking a lie is no virtue, whereas harshness in speaking the truth is no vice. By the way, I am retired and doing this on my own time, if you are not retired, you are stealing time from someone which is typical of lieberals.

          Thamera, there is 4o million American accepting welfare today. That number is maybe 2 years old, I doubt if the number has declined much since then.

          • 45caliber

            Actually they aren’t falling through the cracks unless you want to get them off welfare like I do. They are being paid to vote Democrat. Since they would lose their “free” money if they got a job for extra cash, many families have turned to crime to increase their spending money. Recently here in Texas a man was “teaching his son the family business” – robbing banks. With the entire family involved in criminal activity almost from birth, it is no wonder there is so much crime in welfare districts.

          • bob wire

            I can tell the your mind in set in concrete on this matter 45.

            It appears that you are attempting to tell us that we have 40 million democratic vote bought and paid for. That 40 million American’s are too lazy to work and would rather steal or just lay about.

            Sorry, I’m just not buying that, ~ not 40 , not 30, not 10 million.

            4~6? perhaps.

            and I’m sure not buying that they are democrats or republicans.

    • bob wire

      “By the way, I am retired and doing this on my own time, if you are not retired, you are stealing time from someone which is typical of liberals.”

      No Bob, I’m not retired or stealing from anyone. I could retired but my health is good, I’m at the top of my game and I figure the system is burden enough with dead weight for me to accept any returns on the 1.2 million I’ve invested into the system and it’s not necessary at this time, I’m flush thank you.

    So far, Boehner and Cantor are “nice guys” who happen to be too soft. It seems to me that they’re too shy to be involved in confrontation with the Democrat minority. The Democrats have thusly conceived that they’re still in power and the two “top” Republicans of the House do not use their power of majority to push the agenda they were elected to bring about.
    The Democrats went from quiet losers to arrogance because House Republican leadership allowed them the latitude. Republicans have short memories, they were pushed around every day when the House was Democrat-controlled.
    We need tough-minded achievers who don’t abide by Marquis of Queensbury rules but it seems the Boehner-Cantor combination think they’re in a popularity contest with all House Representatives.
    Simply because there’s a Republican majority doesn’t mean the Democrats will change their underhanded tactics.
    Democrats will only respect strength, nothing else.

  • Tom SC

    Maybe Boener pulled a boner and is dragging his feet on his political promisses and maybe he just can’t get the support of his fellow legislators. He needs to at least get his people working on damage control. Remember he also has to contend with the IDIOT from Nevada and if you don’t like what he’s doing maybe you can get Polosi back.

    Easy to use your tongue….and make promises. Difficult to use your backbone and keep them.

If he can’t keep his word on this issue….what else can’t we trust him on? And if his knees are so weak, he better sit down and let someone else do his job!

    Compromising with the Dems is what has put us in this deep hole. Their ideology hurts America. Take from those that have and give to those that don’t. We sent dozens of new people to D.C. to change this. $100 billion is chicken feed. We need to cut a trillion $ from a bloated $3.6 budget to even make a dent in our problems. Cut welfare, it doesn’t work, cut Obamacare, it won’t work, cut funding for the Arts, if people want to draw pictures buy your own supplies, cut the Dept of Education, privatize it and make it profitable, cut the Dept of Energy, they do nothing, cut funding for left wing radical groups like ACORN, they are dangerous. Break all Unions, they are linked to Communism. This is America. We work on the merit system. If you want it, earn it. The Constitution promises equal opportunity not equal results.

Cut welfare, it doesn’t work, cut Obamacare, it won’t work, cut funding for the Arts, if people want to draw pictures buy your own supplies, cut the Dept of Education, privatize it and make it profitable, cut the Dept of Energy, they do nothing, cut funding for left wing radical groups like ACORN, they are dangerous. Break all Unions, they are linked to Communism. This is America. We work on the merit system. If you want it, earn it. The Constitution promises equal opportunity not equal results. Time to get back to the fundmentals that made us the greatest country in the history of the world. NO more free stuff…

    Start by cutting foreign aid to all the countries of the world, especially our enemies. We either send them money or our troops are stationed in their country. Cut foreign aid (including to China) before cutting Social Security.
    John Boehner is too nice of a guy to be speaker of the house. He needs to be outspoken & take action not just write letters to the President.

    • 45caliber

      We give almost every country in the world at least $10 mill a year. Most get far more, particularly our enemies.

      As far as I’m concerned, ALL federal aid to foreign countries should be cut. Further, we should not fund the World Bank as we do nor should we make any loans by buying their treasury notes – since they have no intention of redeaming them. The ONLY foreign aid I would consider is for things like earthquake aid or tsunami aid.

      I would also like to see all give away programs ended, regardless of whether they are for individuals (welfare) or corporate. That includes all charities who receive money from the government. I would also like to see the federal government organized like industry is – why do they have at least 5 supervisors for each worker instead of the other way around? And I’d like to see all non-Constitutional departments closed like Education, Welfare, Energy, HUD, Interior, etc.

      And I don’t consider SS a give-away program since we paid the money to be able to have a retirement check. The fact that Congress stole the money rather than investing it as promised doesn’t mean that we should give up on that.

  • Ken Bittner

    Boehner needs to go! He is (apparently) just another D.C. career politician who works both sides of the aisle when the cameras are off. We gave him a chance. He compromised our trust in him. The stakes are too high at this point for apologies and second chances.
    Next!

    When are you people going to realise that what we face in congress is a war between the Conservatives and the Liberals. And, like any war, no battle plan ever survives first contact with the enemy. Mr. Beohner, like any good commander, is going to take whatever wins he can get initially, secure it, and then look for ways to advance further. It’s a progress, not a single act.

    But no, you clowns are just like all the other idiots who want everything right now. And if you don’t get it, you blame the leader of your army, rather then the enemy forces. Pull you head out of your arse, shut your trap, and give Speaker Beohner and the conservatives some time to act. Short term gains may be small, but in the long term, they’ll achieve the goals they set out.

    Like they say in Washington, A billion here, a billion there; pretty soon you’re talking real money.

    • 45caliber

      I have no problem with small steps – as long as they keep stepping. What I’m afraid of is that they won’t keep cutting – they will simply add their own wasteful programs. When we need to cut at least a trillion a year, why stop with only 61 billion?

  • Mr. Freedom

    People dont have the guts or the fortitude to return to the rule of law which is the US constitution. A great country is divided and falling. We need a leader with strong moral values and putting the security of our country first on their list. You can start by fining the employees that hire illegal immigrants.

      It’s working quit well for those that oppose the hidden intent while maybe admiring your spirit.

      The Tea Party is offering American’s a “package” and expect it to be offered as such. ~To see everyone desire such a package will require modification as the TP has the Fox guarding the hen house. As we ask for job creating climates, we get something else. As we see a constant flip flopping on what was stated and what being offered as priorities.

      There is little new in all of these but labels and packaging.

    One man can only do so much, I really don’t care much from cry baby Beohner, his having to work nights at every dirty job that he could find spill, His having to work in the family bar. His back problems that cut short his Navy tour to just two weeks.

    But he’s a solid rank and file GOP man, even when it stinks.

    If you don’t like him, find another but it’s very hard for one man to stand against the current. And the problems we have had with the GOP for the last 30 years is the current is invisible to the eye. The GOP is not lead by elected leaders but by special interest and political spin doctors the like of Lee Atwater and Karl Rove.

          Absolutely. Palin and Gingrich are both big fat RINOs, and if they get into office, we can expect more of the same – status quo politics as usual.

          • bob wire

            Me as well,~ but I do see her as a well intended CINO.

            I’m just seeing if reverse physiology really works, 45.

            Oh please ~! don’t sent us Palin and Newt !

            Lawrence on MSNBC, has been doing a hatchet job on Newt every evening for a good 8 days now.

            While I despite the man and everything about him, I’m beginning to feel sorry for him.

            as far a Palin, if she had a better presence and pleasing voice, the NRA would scoop her up in a minute. But she is just too disingenuous and can’t act.

            What she don’t understand or know, she makes up for in arrogance, ballsy posturing maybe but it would never float or endure in national politics, making her more suited for a small office or kitchen.

          • Carlucci

            JC & Thamera,

            I peg Sarah Palin as a RINO because she ran with McCain, and campaigned last year for our governor Rick Perry here in Texas. Both McCain and Perry are status quo big government RINOs. Worse, I believe that McCain is really a closet limosine liberal, because a lot of his cronies are democrats. Actions always speak louder than words, and you can tell a lot about someone by the company they keep, and who they endorse.

            I like Sarah Palin and I think she is as cute as a button. I’ve expressed my views about her on this blog before. She and her family have lost credibility in my opinion because they are such publicity hounds. Anytime an alleged “conservative” media outlet like FOX needs some kind of “voice” to back them up, Sarah is usually their huckleberry. While I don’t begrudge anyone for grabbing the brass ring during their fifteen minutes of fame, I don’t think they should do so while they are potentially running for some kind of political
            office.

          • bob wire

  • Howard Roark

    This all began with a segment of our population came up with the idea that we should use a part of the federal budget to help people. (began in the early nineteen twenties) The States however never gave up their State Police Power. (legal term that means that the States have the power to look after the welfare of their own State citizens)Supported by the tenth amendment.
    This notion of helping people at the Federal level was solidly put into effect by Franklin Roosevelt when he extorted SCOUTS with his court packing scheme to rule that the Article One Section Eights statement to provide for the general welfare meant that the Fed. Govt could spend money for the general welfare. SCOTUS under pressure did rule that monies could be spent for the general welfare. but the court also ruled in in three seperate decisions that the general welfare is Federal not local and that when money is spent for the general welfare it must benefit all americans and can not be spent to benefit any special interest group.
    The democrats for decades have been ignoring this rule of law and have been BUYING VOTES by providing for special interest groups suuch as Food Stamps, Public Housing, Medicade etc. none of which benefit all americans but benefit only a small segment of the population. there is an old political saying that says that “WHEN YOU ROB PETER TO PAY PAUL YOU CAN COUNT ON PAUL TO VOTE FOR YOU”. another is “IT IS THE BEGINING OF THE END FOR ANY GOVERNMENT WHEN THE PEOPLE REALIZE THAT THEY CAN VOTE THEMSELVES BENEFITS.”
    It is obvious that the Democrats do not want to cut spending as their very existance depends on buying votes with taxpayer money through all of their various give away programs.
    Think about it. if all of these unconstitutional programs were eliminated what would the democrats have to stand on. their whole reason for existing is to promise people that if you continue to vote for me I will continue to steal the wealth of others and give it to you. as some great american said “WHEN ONE RECEIVES WITHOUT WORKING FOR, ANOTHER MUST WORK FOR WITHOUT RECEIVING.” have no doubt the Dems are crapping in their pants aqs they see their vote buying scheme fading fast away.
    Our Nation is in serious trouble. it is imparitive that the our Constitution be restored, and the Federal Government be forced back to its few constitutional powers. The States are much better fit to look after the interest of their citizens.

    The first duty of a patriot is to protect his country FROM ITS GOVERNMENT.

      DING! — I’m afraid you hit the nail solidly on the head, Mr. Roark. Well done. Your piece points out the essential part that’s rarely gotten to these days, and the thing I am constantly searching for and covet the most: “getting to the heart of the matter.” I sincerely believe that when the average person working in the private sector simply comes to understand your position, the jig will be up, and, unfortunately for everyone, the economy will quickly grind to a halt. When the producing class finally wakes-up & realizes that they have become slaves for others, that’s when the game will come to an end — they simply will stop producing. They will no longer play the game of: “I’ll make something and let you take it from me.” They will refuse to continue feeding the government parasites & those who “vote” for a living. This day is coming, and probably soon. And when it does, it’s going to get ugly. I look forward to this day — maybe then we can get our freedoms back.

      And along with this theme, I too have a few select quotes:

      “When half of the people get the idea that they don’t have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for… that, my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.” – Author Unknown

      “Its impossible to be charitable with other peoples money, and it’s immoral.” – Author Unknown

      “Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state wants to live at the expense of everyone.” – Frédéric Bastiat

  • TIME

    Lets break this down for the very simple minded.

    First off if you have “UNFUNDED Liabilities” that are 3 time greater than the entire worlds money supply. It only makes sence to cut spending as paying only Interest payments never chips away the base debt.

    So when you cut less than 1% of the spending at $100, Billion dollars, then drop back to $60 Billion dollars, thus dropping that 1% down to less than 1/2%, then back down down to $6 Billion dollars.
    You have not even started to cover 1/16% of the interest payment. Thus its like doing nothing at all.

    If you get elected on a platform of “CUTTING spending, Cutting Waste, & Fraud,” as well as pure insaine spending, such as The HCRB.
    Of what everthing that was stated as 100% Wrong with that bill has come to pass as the “TRUTH” just as we who said these EVIELS were in it were called every name under the sun for exposing these TRUTHS.
    Such as “YOU LIE!”
    Seems that SC Congresman needs an apology from Barry. But I digress.

    Its TIME we had real leaders not Twinkie Punks in suits that tell you what you want to hear to placate your fragile little ego’s or the simple minded in their tin foil caps full of hope & change.

    Whats been going on is your elected officials are told what to do by “SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS.” While telling you the TAX payers to go and {Blank} Yourself.

    The only way we will ever get this country back to true FREEDOM is to remove all Special Interest Groups, as well all Lobbyist.

    Thus then have your elected officials act as your “advocate” like the Constitution explains their roles to be.

    • Carlucci

    1, Imediaetly return the Constitution to its original meaning.

    2, return to the States their State poloice power.

    3. Immediately freeze the amount spent on all of the Unconstitutional spending,

    4. reduce the spending on the Unconstitutional spending by one third each year until it is phased out over a three year period.

    5 amend the Constitution with a balenced budget amendment.

    6. amend the constitution with an amendment that clearly defines the meaning of the general welfare and the regulation of interstate commerce as intended by the founders.

    Hows that.

            That’s it, boy, keep looking down on people like that!! you prove our point better than any site we could post!!!

          • Denniso

            I’ll try to help you understand…’people even smaller than us’,means that there are people struggling to exist in this country even more so than the small people like us. The Repubs want to force through cuts that affect the most vulnerable,rather than the people at the top,or the large corporate giants.

            The oil companies,for instance, are not ‘small people’. As unrest in the middle east causes oil prices to rise,the oil giants reap even higher windfall profits,not based upon higher costs or increased hiring,but just because people are fearful of supplies. Exxon et al are certainly not feeling any pain during these tough times,and the Repubs have no interest in seeing their subsidies cut.

  • hkcon

    as long as there are career politicians, this problem will continue to grow. they are to be there to SERVE, NOT TO HAVE A CAREER. when they are campaigning while in office instead SERVING, then they are guilty of self dealing and are not going to follow the Constitution. When people are afraid of the Government you have Tryanny, When government is afraid of the people you have FREEDOM. Are you afraid of the IRS, I submit that if you are not it is because you either pay no tax, or because you have drank the kool-aid and believe they have the right to tax you. But think about this, HOW MUCH WOULD YOU PAY IF IT WAS NOT MANDATORY??? How would those on welfare act, if they knew that payments to them could stop at a moments notice if we felt we were being taken advantage of. Should a person on welfare, receive it for life, 30 yrs, 20 yrs, 10 yrs,??? Should they have a brand new car, and be making payments on it WITH TAX DOLLARS??? A brand new flat screen TV bought for with money that was taken at gunpoint from someone who traded their life force for that money??? You can say all you want about corporate this and that and the wealthy blah blah blah, but the reality is this, THE GOVERNMENT NOW PAYS EITHER THRU ENTITLEMENTS OR SALARIES, ALMOST 1/2 OF ALL INCOME RECEIVED IN THE U.S.of A.

  • Silverfox2

    How much closer to being a “RINO” than is being called a CONSERVATIVE?

  • Ellen1

    Have a GOP congress? Have we learned nothing? Both parties have sold out to neocon or Marxist interests. Both parties support the globalist agenda and the major lot of them are so corrupt that they need to be ripped out of office, tried for treason and summarily punished. NEITHER PARTY HAS ANY CREDIBILITY and they’ve proven this over and over no matter how much we WISH it to be different.

    Boehner sent a letter to President Barack Obama questioning his intentions in Libya? Questioning his intentions? How about saying it right out loud that the whole Libyan debacle is nothing more than a grab for their oil and entirely outside the scope of the usurper’s very short list of duties? It’s all a disgusting lie perpetrated by these criminals and supported by the lot of them.

  • Lawrence Ekdahl

    The bottom line is: There are many good things we could spend money on if we had it but we have no right to rob our great grandchildrens future spending money we do not have.

    • Bob

      There actually few good things on which government should be spending money because government uses tax money to reward those who parasitize the rest of us (welfare parasites, union drones,government employees). By cutting the things on which government spends money, we can slash government spending. Government wastes tons of money and we must slash government and government spending if we are going to survive.

      • 45caliber

        I agree. I remember a few years ago the accounting department found someone government manager had spent $5 mill on her government credit card. When they checked $3 mill had gone to charities. So they blew it all off since 5 mill is only peanuts. She kept her job and the credit card. And apparently the $2 mill they couldn’t track.

Neither side has any incination to do anything that doesn’t benefit themselves personally on some level…period.

It’s time to stop feeding this beast…..cut off the money supply…..shut down the country for a month or two and I bet we would get their attention….as in…stock up over a few months…then stop going to work, buying things etc…..when the nation hits a stand still…they will listen. Short of that happening….nothing…I repeat…NOTHING will change in DC.

      The democrats have perpetuated the rank lie that the rich are all Republicans and conservatives while the truth is that the rich are primarily democrat lieberals. Examples: Gates, Gore, Edwards, Buffet, Soros, almost all of Hollywood’s parasites, and many, many others. The truth is, the money in America is controlled by the lieberals. And as far as the evil misuse of money, no greater examples exist than Soros and the monopolist predator Gates.

          • Denniso

            Don’t so easily show your ignorance of history…look up the number of people in the Reagan and Bush administrations,not to mention Nixon,who were forced out or jailed.

      • 45caliber

        When I was in school it was illegal for a Communist to hold a teaching position in schools or colleges. I even saw one fired for it.

        But not too long after I graduated from college someone in Washington decided it wasn’t ‘fair’ for our Communists to not be allowed to teach so they passed a law allowing them to do that.

        Now I think most of the teachers in the larger colleges/universities are Communists.

        • bob wire

          What is it that make you think that 45?

          • Bob

            If you ever read the newsletters of the American Federation of Teachers (I have) you would understand why 45caliber believes the teachers to be communists. The AFT is a far left organization that supports the democrats and maobama in their efforts to turn America into a socialist worker’s “utopia” (aka a pigsty). I am sure that the NEA is even worse. Anyone who supports these organizations is guilty of supporting their whole agenda and advancing the cause of socialist slavery.

It just shows what rich bastards the double speaking dumbocrats are. Most Wall Street smucks are corrupt demorats, check out the bankers and their political veiws. Daschle, Geithner, and Rangel of elitist tax cheats who claim to be such brains. Daschle was in Minn durning Onumnutts elction promoting the federal health care crap. Read Daschle’s book to see how f–king ingrained to socialism he was, and Onumnutts was using Daschle plans for federal controlled health care plan, supplemented with some other jailhouse socialist crooks government control. Of course Daschle was bragging 8 years before Whorehound and Hillary hit the scene, that he was running for Pres. and would get federal healthcare progam instituted by having a democrat majority. Not hearsay but from 2 of Daschle’s union member close friends from where Daschle lived. Apperently all the irration Tea Party people are stirring up and as their group keeps growing. There still might be some positive signs peole waking up. Might as well get the life long slubs, of either party out of office.

    just remember the borrowing and printing of money by the weimar republic and the resultant dictatorship. i still remember holding a 100 mark bill that had been converted to a 1000 mark note via the use of a rubber stamp and a pad with red ink.

      Some time ago I read an article about an Afican country whose money had been so inflated that it took something like three trillion of their “dollars” to ride a bus. If maobama and the democrats have their way in inflating our money, our national debt will be no more than a couple of bus rides. If the “great” democrat president jimmy carter had won another term, we would already be there.

    I have no objection with what is being sold.

  • Marty S.

    Our current speaker is a career politician who is trying not to stir the pot too much and it shows in his lack of backbone regarding the budget cuts. If we all ran our household budgets the way Congress and the Executive does our personal finances would implode. The 100 billion dollar cut initially proposed was laughable in comparison to the size of spending.

    • Denniso

      We suffered the largest economic crash since the Depression…all economists agree that cutting spending during a recession DOES NOT help w/ recovery,but actually prolongs the recession. We got into this mess over decades,we can’t get out of it in a couple of yrs. We need to establish a balance between spending and revenues gradually,and we can’t do it only by cutting spending.

      • AustinAndy

        The Keynesian model of economics has been thoroughly discredited. Massive government spending and interfering with the free market mechanisms prevents the economy from recovery and maintains recession ills.

        Neither George W. nor Barack H. get high marks on this one.

        If we are to survive as a nation, we need vigorous and brave action to cut the federal budget significantly, or our economy will come undone. Compromise on this issue will continue our spiral into the black hole of debt.

  • Don

    Politics is the Art of the Possible. If both sides take rigid no compromise positions, nothing will be achieved. The Tea Party does not understand this. It makes sense to compromise on last year’s budget, which is what this nonsense is all about. Once that is out of the way, they can get started on Obama’s new budget and make more progress there.

    We don’t need to cut all spending all at once, we just need to start a downtrend and keep it going year after year.

    Non-compromisers on both sides seem to have a death wish.

  • Richard Pawley

    The Democrats certainly seem to have such a wish. While there is some truth to this we don’t have the time to fool around as we have been doing for years. If we can cut 20% this year it could make a difference but the result of all the spending of money we don’t have is already causing the Treasury to create $70,000 MILLION DOLLARS a month out of thin air. The nation is broke and all the money that everyone earns – EVERYONE – would still not be enough to run the cities, the states, and the FEDERAL government and the result cannot be anything but the most hidden of taxes: INFLATION (as I said above). Believe this and prepare for it, not by speculating in buying gold and silver but by buying the things you will really need. How many can get by without going to the store for six months like some of the early pioneers did? Well, if congress keeps spending the way they have been, even with a paltry 61 BILLION cut out of a 3,000 BILLION budget, then you had better prepare because you will find out, and it won’t make any difference if you are Democrat or Republican, Libertarian or Tea Party, Socialist or Progressive, Rich or Poor – all are going to be affected! May God help us because no one else is going to do so.

    Almost $5.5 trillion of debt added to the debt of previous administrations in just 2.5 years. That is the fastest increase in debt by any president since WWII. And does anyone wonder if the President is at heart a Marxist economic believer?

  • http://charden@neo.rr.com Charles

    Denniso!! Denniso,
    I agree, and wonder when you are going to stop your lying
    and start telling the truth. First, you have to go back to school
    and learn how to add and subtract.Obama has added more debt to
    the deficit than all the Presidents combined and he did it in only 2 years. I see all your left wing buddies are out to-day. I always
    wondered why the banks crashed 2 months before the 2008 election,
    when McCain was leading. Tell me why the housing market crashed when
    a congressman by the name of Barney Frank was more or less to make
    sure this didn`t happen. Bush wanted a audit of Freddie and Fanney,
    but the Dems made sure this wouldn`t happen.Frank told the congress
    that F&F were very sound when it wasn`t.Another question, I would like to know your answer? Is Van Jones A Communist?

    about anything that might be effecting this country in a
    negative way. I do care what you are. I don`t think your a Communist
    or a Fascist, as you think I might be. I just don`t think you know,
    that much about Obama or his friends or advisors and I think you could care less and don`t want to know. I will tell and promise
    you someday, you will wish you had known. I`m and Independent and
    wish it was different than it is,however, there is no longer a Democrat party and I just can`t except the distruction of our
    way of life by a bunch of people bent on hell in doing this (Progressives). You keep on doing your good work of not giving

      And I said I could care less if you’re a fascist or not,in regard to the discussion.

  • http://charden@neo.rr.com Charles

    Denniso,
    How many names have I given you to check out in the past? The
    names of Obamas friends and advisors. If you would have checked
    them out you might understand where we are headed. Where do you want me to start on grievances. Healthcare, Cap and Trade, Bail outs,etc.
    In bed with the unions( SEIU-Andy Stern), People who are his friends and advisors, Obams Czars, and the list goes on. The biggest thing
    that bothers me most are the Communist, Socialists and Progressives
    that Obama has surounded himself with from day one. I can set here
    all day and you aren`t going to believe me. You need to find out what the Apollo Alliance is and who was Obams Green Czar and what and
    who wrote the 890 billion dollar Stimulas. Uncover one stone and another will take it`s place. These are just a few things, I could probley give you another 100. Tell me what Obama meant,when he said, that he was going to transform America and spread the wealth. I sure would like to know.

    • Denniso

      Healthcare,cap and trade,bailouts…the healthcare bill is an attempt at fixing the biggest mess and most expensive healthcare system in the world, that alos leaves millions out in the cold or in bankruptcy.
      I don’t like the mandates and think they will be thrown out by the Court,but we have been watching the system soar in costs and bankrupt people and comapnies for decades now and something has to change in a fundamental way. Beside all that, most people who are already insured don’t have to change anything.

      Why doesn’t the rightwing rail against the giant salaries and huge cost increases from the insurance and hospital industries? If the Repubs actually worked w/ the Dems rather than fighting every inch of the way,we might have gotten a better bill.

      Cap and trade is no big bad boogey man…it was used to significantly control acid rain 20 yrs ago,remember that? Rivers and lakes so acidic from coal fired power plants that everything in them was dying. Cap and trade is used in most of the western world and simply tries to use the ‘market’ to deal w/ huge environmental problems.

      If you can’t see that the bailouts saved the entire economy from a major collapse,then you aren’t looking. Bush and his people started the bailouts because every expert economist,here and around the world,
      all agreed that it was of urgent importance. The economy is in a slow but definite recovery,and that would probably not be the case otherwise. I’m po’d that the ceo’s of the big banks and other companies got huge bonuses ans salaries,but there is almost no doubt that the expensive action saved the economy from utter devastation.

      If you want to challenge what the trained economists said, then maybe you should take a few courses in economics first…virtually all the people complaining about the way Bush and Obama worked to save the economy,know little or nothing about the details and complexity of economics.
      As to ‘our way of life’?? I don’t know anybody who is living much differently than befopre,except for the slow economy and lost jobs,which is what happens when a capitalist economy implodes. Do you advocate a state controlled economy so we don’t go through these booms and busts?

    Denniso,
    You can go and live in one of those countries, that have all you
    are raving about. I perfure to live in the greatest country ever
    known to man. The good old USA. We didn`t become that country by giving away our wealth to every Tom Dick and Harry that comes along.
    We worked low paying jobs till something better came along.We didn`t set home waiting for the goverment to give us hand outs.My father
    worked WPA, a goverment program,. for very little money to help us to get through.Firestone, my fathers employer, gave their laid off a plot of land to plant a garden to help us. My self, brother, and my father and mother worked our butts off so we could have food to be eaten
    and caned for a later date to be eaten.When my father had time to hunt,we would have meat on the table. I and my brother learned to fish
    along with thousands of other people in the same boat we were in.
    In other words, we as a faimly, worked our asses off. We did lose our house and had to rent for several years till things got better and we rebounded stronger than ever. We were dirt poor,but never envied the
    rich across town. We worked very hard and served in three wars and
    as a faimly was very proud.The one thing the poor don`t seem to have that we had
    and that was God in our lives. Being poor, we were very happy.I never once felt that I was poor nor rich either. We were just the faimly
    next door willing to share what we had with others. We also didn`t
    jump and run to the hospital every time we got sick or stomped our
    big toe. We fought every sickness known to man and yet we managed
    to live a long life or are still here. Mom died at 92 and dad at 90.
    I won`t tell you how old Iam or my brother is.I`ll let you figure that out. I will tell you, I`m an Independent and I don`t care for
    either party .I have voted many times for Democrats as well as Republicans, However, I will not vote for a Progressive or back one
    who I see is leading this country to complete ruin. It is closer
    than you think.If Obama has is way and his friends,we won`t have a 2012 election as we know. Mark my word,He is trying to move as fast as he can to accomplish this. He wants to make this country go broke
    by spending and not being able to borrow any more money.You must not have
    payed attention about what he said about Cap and Trade. Obama said,
    not the Republicans, that your energy cost under Cap and Trade will
    increase to highs we have have never sean. Please explain this one.
    Tell me how we can add 140 million people to health care and it won`t
    cost us a red cent. Figures don`t lie, but people who figure lie.
    Have a good day Denniso. If we want to get rid of the illigals,then the poor and unemployed need to do the jobs that the illigals do and
    not set on their asses waiting for goverment handouts. Go to work
    America, there are jobs. When things get better, you will be the first in line to get a better job.

      You don’t think we will have a 2012 election because Obama won’t allow it? You’re just repeating what some said about Bush before the 2004 election,and now the paranoid and ill informed are spreading about the next one. That’s pure foolishness and you should know better.

      Healthcare…we are not adding 140 million to the insurance rolls,but rather about 30 million,which is a huge difference. The way it’s supposed to work is that there will be a larger pool,many who are young and healthy,and that will lead eventually to lower premiums.
      Also,the uninsured now often get treatment that they can’t pay for and the system has to cover the costs from people who do pay,meaning you pay for part of the uninsured getting healthcare already.

    Denniso > If you ask me England and the rest of Europe are in a bigger bust than we are because of their Social agenda.Give me a Capitalist economy any day. I don`t want the goverment running any more of my life, they do enough as it is.

    • Denniso

      England and Europe ARE capitalist, they just have more social programs and more progressive taxes than us. Europe is doing better than us in general if you look at health,longevity,child mortality,crime,murder,rape,education. All modern 1st world countries recognize that raw capitalism DOES NOT WORK. If left to it’s own devices it essentially devours itself w/ greed,income gaps,monopoly,etc.

      Modern,large, industrialized countries need a balance between markets and regulation and safety nets…the lessons from history are pretty obvious.

    Denniso,
    When was the last time you where in Europe? You think they are doing better, you got to be kidding. Take the inner city out of the equation and you would see a 100% improvement in all the things that
    your saying is wrong with America. I guess you would love to pay 6 to 8 dollars a gallon of gass. In Germany, uninployment is at 15% and
    claiming. Food is out of sight.Try staying in a nice hotel for a night
    350 dollars. You can stay in some old bed and brackfest for 160 a night Don`t tell me how Europe is a better place to live. I was there
    last year for 4 weeks on vacation and believe me, there is no place
    like home. My wife is from Germany and ask her where she would rather live. It`s a no brainer. Once again, you need to get your facts right.

    • Denniso

      Western Europe and England has been doing better in most quality of life issues for decades…high gas prices but plenty of cheap mass tran…not as many billionaires but fewer poverty stricken citizens…
      many fewer guns but much lower crime rates…lower salaries for some but 5 week vacations. Sure, our wealthy class is doing well here,but most working people have been struggling for yrs.

    Denniso,
    If you want to ride the train, then by all means you do it.If this gives you a better life ,good for you. Maybe you should get a bike
    or better yet walk like Davey Crocket did and instead of a better life
    riding the train, you could have a supper better life. This would give you a chance to stop and smell the roses and count the money that
    Obama would be giving you. As the one women, said, when asked, why she
    voted for Obama and her reply was to get some of the money he promised. She was then asked,where did Obama get the money and she
    replied, I don`t know,probley from his stash.

  • http://charden@neo.rr.com Charles

    Denniso,
    They are mostly all poverty stricken. Why in the Hell do you think
    people from other countries want to come here? Not to ride the transit, I can do that at any amusement park. As far as crime,you know
    why we have crime.I`m not going to tell you again.There is no reason
    why we need mass transit unless it`s between Wah. and NY. We need the
    EPA and Obama to get out the way, so we can live the lives we have a right to from hard work. Drill baby<Drill. We do pretty well, considering all you kooks, that our trying to destroy our way of life
    because your either to damn lazy to work or if you do, don`t know
    how to manage your money and want what someone else has.Obama even said, this is the greatest country on earth, then I can`t figure out,
    why he is trying to destroy it? As far as guns you are right, we do have the most. Answer this, who is doing most of the killing and not just in the US, but in countries all over the world. It dosen`t take
    a lot of brains to figure that out.
