Senate Democratic leaders do not plan to propose a budget this year, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters Friday, saying that they had already done so with the debt-ceiling agreement.
“We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year — it’s done, we don’t need to do it,” Reid said, according to The Hill.
The US Senate has dismissed it’s Constitutional Duty for 1,013 days now.
So by Election day it will 1,307 Days without a budget.
So the Democrats don’t have to make the hard choices and reveal their socialist spendthrift ways, of course. They don’t have to reveal their super-secret pinkie-swear plans for complete control of everyone and everything Congress and thus put their allies in the Ministry of Truth in a tough spot (much easier for everyone to just ignore it) and they can’t be seen as “doing something” in the “do Nothing” Congress Democrat meme.
“It’s been more than 1,000 days since Senate Democrats have offered a budget plan to the American people. Now, once again, the Senate’s ineffectual Democrat majority balks at the task of leadership,” said Sessions in a statement.
Leadership by blaming the guy for everything!
“He obviously continues in his belief that it would be politically foolish for his members to go on record in support of any long-term vision. But by refusing to lay out a budget plan for public examination—a fact no one can deny—the Democrat Senate has forfeited the high privilege to lead this chamber,” he went on.
“Budget Control Act spending caps, crafted behind closed doors and rushed to passage at the 11th hour under threat of panic, do not even approach the definition of the budget process that the law requires. They are not in any way or any sense a Senate Democrat budget plan. There is no argument that can be made that these caps are a long-term vision for this country—not on taxes, not on entitlements, not on spending, not on debt,” he said. “Presumably, this obvious fact is why Chairman Conrad has said he will mark up a budget in our Committee.”
“[T]his process will be eviscerated if Sen. Reid refuses to allow a budget resolution to come to the floor,” said Sessions.
But remember, according to The Democrats and their allies in the Ministry of Truth (The Liberal Media) it’s the Republicans who are “obstructionists”!!!!
And in those 11th hour panics the Republicans cave into the Democrats wants and desires, so why would they want to change something that is working FOR THEM?
Never let a Crisis go to waste and if you can continually create them to off-put those evil “right wingers” so much the better.
Budget, we Don’t need no stinkin’ Budget!
The American People are getting screwed, but at the Democrats are happy.
And That’s all that matters. Don’t Worry, Be Happy!
On this, Yes They Can Wait!
SUPREME COURT JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG
(on Egyptian TV)
I can’t speak about what the Egyptian experience should be, because I’m operating under a rather old constitution. The United States, in comparison to Egypt, is a very new nation, and yet we have the oldest written constitution still in force in the world.
You should certainly be aided by all the constitution-writing that has gone one since the end of World War II. I would not look to the US constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, had an independent judiciary… It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done. Much more recent than the US constitution – Canada has a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It dates from 1982. You would almost certainly look at the European Convention on Human Rights. Yes, why not take advantage of what there is elsewhere in the world?
And she sworn into office to uphold THE US Constitution and interpret THE US Constitution based on only the US Constitution.
But like most Liberals, she knows better and there are laws and Constitutions that are better because ours is dusty and old and out of date so it should be a guide but it’s not worth taking very seriously because it’s just too old and out of step with Liberal Progressive Thought.
She doesn’t want to do the job she was sworn to do, because she knows better. Other countries know better. We are behind the times.
The Constitution is not a sacred document, it’s dusty old piece of paper that is in the way of what THEY WANT to do and what THEY Think is right.
That is more important.
It’s all about RIGHTS. Right to a House and a Right to Health Care, The right of the Government being the grantor of everything and you being grateful to them for it,and more.
“Why not take advantage of what there is elsewhere in the world,” Ginsburg said. “I’m a very strong believer of listening and learning from others.”
But there was one nugget of truth in here appearance:
“If the people don’t care, then the best constitution in the world won’t make any difference. The spirit of liberty has to be in the population.”
And with that…
President Barack Obama is urging Americans citizens to act like soldiers on a a domestic economic battlefield, presumably under his generalship.
But he’s not a Banana Republic Dictator-wanna be!!
Soldiers “work as a team [and] personify the very best that America has to offer,” Obama declared during a Feb. 3 press event at a Virginia firehouse. “That’s true on the battlefront. … It’s also true on the home front,” said Obama, who used the event to highlight new federal job-creation programs for veterans.
But you’re Anti-War Mr. president and so is your base.
The Military also has a separate Code of Justice that doesn’t require the same guarantees as Civilians.
Come to think of it, that is Obama Already!
Can we go AWOL now, please!
Obama’s comparison of civilians to soldiers is a mistake, said David Boaz, the executive vice president of the Cato Institute.
“The military is a team, a football team is a team, a company can work a team… but 310 million people don’t have a single purpose,” he told The Daily Caller.
“We have many different purposes and goals,” he said.
But like General Kim Jon Il, we should all be one and adore our Leader unto death!
Ours, not his.
For example, “I want a job and you want to the same job, I want to sell more pizza in Nashville and so do you… that’s competition, and that’s a completely different kind of of society that one with a single purpose,” he said.
Obama used similar military language in his Jan. 24 State of the Union speech.
“At a time when too many of our institutions have let us down, [soldiers] exceed all expectations… they don’t obsess over their differences. They focus on the mission at hand. They work together,” he declared.
“This nation is great because we worked as a team… because we get each other’s backs,” he said. “If we hold fast to that truth, in this moment of trial, there is no challenge too great; no mission too hard.”
Would it too much fun to frag, the General, Sir?
This martial pitch matches his repeated calls for Americans to agree with his progressive policies, which emphasize top-down expert guidance of the economy, including the financial, medical, auto-manufacturing, energy, educational, transport and social elements in American society.
Obama downplays teamwork, however, when the teams are not part of his political coalition, or do not want to be led by a federal government.
On Jan 20., for example, his administration announced that religious employees at church-run schools, hospitals and universities would not be regarded as part of churches’ teams, which are exempt from some health sector regulations. Instead, Obama directed they be separated and treated as routine commercial employees, subject to routine federal health-sector regulations.
Similarly, progressives have objected strongly to other groups of American acting in coordination, including the tea party movement, gun-rights supporters, pro-life groups, social conservative movements and advocates for property rights.
The bourgeoisie Vs The proletariat which one are you?
You’re either on my team or your dirt under my fingernails. Which one are you?
Sounding very Jeffersonian isn’t he! NOT!
Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky anyone?
Tevi Troy, a former deputy secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services in President George W. Bush’s administration. In general, “everybody loves ‘teamwork,’ it’s a great concept,” he said.
But Bush wouldn’t have used such military language when advocated domestic goals because it is “mindless,” he said, “America is not a great country because of this notion of teamwork… were our best inventions made by groups of people or by individuals competing to get their inventions out first?”
More important the teamwork, he said are “ingenuity, freedom, bringing the smartest people to our shores and pluck.” (DC)
To paraphrase Lou Grant’s famous line in the Pilot to Mary Tyler Moore, “I Hate Spunk!” Obama’s would be “I hate pluck!”
We do all together as one and I get all the credit of F*uck you all to hell!!
296 days until election day.
Don’t waste them.
If we all work as a team we can get rid of General Obama.
It’s bedtime for Bozo!
Now if we could just get the gutless Republicans to stand up to the Sith Lord.
