Which party puts politics above the people? The Hypocrites… er Democrats
Like a spoiled child, the President’s favorite word while he throws political tantrums is “fairness”. This isn’t fair. That’s not fair. Whatever Barry. Today, Barry told you he doesn’t care what is fair for you – he only cares that you vote for him.
Today, the Senate voted on party lines to not fund the Government and deny a one year delay in Obamacare. The Obamacare amendment they defeated along party lines was titled the “Fairness amendment” because it would delay the individual mandate LEGALLY because the President UNFAIRLY and ILLEGALLY delayed the corporate mandate for one year. So, Harry votes to shut down the government, stick it to you – all in the hopes he picks up some congressional seats in 2014. There you go.
Not a SINGLE democrat had the courage to do the right thing. NOT ONE. I hope red states pummel them in 2014.
Meanwhile, the idiot GOP establishment continues to negotiate against themselves. Rumor is they are preparing another offer. Morons. Hit the lights on your way out, we are done here.
UPDATE: Meanwhile, McConnell works behind the scenes to completely undermine our cause:
Well, McConnell is playing the same game with the fight over Obamacare. Last week, he completely sandbagged the unified House defund bill when he handed Harry Reid the requisite votes to strip out the rider and gain leverage over the House by sending back his own CR. Now, as he did with the debt ceiling fight in 2011, McConnell plans to feast on the carcass that he created.
After McConnell stabbed House Republicans in the back, they have been negotiating with themselves. They watered down defund to delay, and are working on watering it down further to more shiny objects. In the meantime, Democrats are standing firm and not negotiating with themselves. Then comes McConnell with a plan to pass a one-week clean CR.
So what is the purpose of a one-week CR? After telegraphing the message to Democrats that he is terrified of a government shutdown, why would McConnell want to delay the inevitable for one week? Why does he need another week to cave?
The only plausible strategy is that he wants to merge the CR with the debt ceiling so that he doesn’t have to cave on two separate fronts and raise the ire of conservatives even more than he has already done.
McConnell and other DC establishment figures need to stop with the tricks. They have already said they will never use brinkmanship to shutdown Obamacare. They have watered down their position three times while Democrats stand firm. This is just an embarrassing slow bleed. If this is where they are headed, it’s better they man up and propose a full-year, clean CR.
But that would take some degree of courage.
From Breitbart.com Media Silent as Shutdown Looms, Obama Golfs, Reid Takes Morning Off
Imagine the media uproar had Republican House Speaker John Bohner golfed over the weekend — like Obama did. Imagine the media uproar had Boehner not showed up to work today until 2pm, which is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s plan.
The fact that the media are not making Obama or Reid pay a price for loafing as a government shutdown looms, is one thing.
What is most telling is that the Democrats are so sure the media is in the tank for them that they are comfortable loafing.
