Bloviating Zeppelin: Friday: Boehner's Bill Passes The House

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Friday: Boehner's Bill Passes The House

By a margin of 218 to 210.

Twenty-two Republicans voted against Boehner:

Justin Amash (Mich.)
Michele Bachmann (Minn.)
Chip Cravaack (Minn.)
Jason Chaffetz (Utah)
Scott Desjarlais (Tenn.)
Tom Graves (Ga.)
Tim Huelskamp (Kans.)
Steve King (Iowa)
Tim Johnson (Ill.)
Tom McClintock (Calif.)
Mick Mulvaney (S.C.)
Ron Paul (Texas)
Connie Mack (Fla.)
Jim Jordan (Ohio)
Tim Scott (S.C.)
Paul Broun (Ga.)
Tom Latham (Iowa)
Jeff Duncan (S.C.)
Trey Gowdy (S.C.)
Steve Southerland (Fla.)
Joe Walsh (Ill.)
Joe Wilson (S.C.)

CORRECTED: Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) voted YES on the Boehner bill. That was incorrect in the initial list. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) has been added to the list.It took days to get a bill up and through the House -- many days.

However, oddly enough -- only about 2.35 seconds later -- the Demorats in the Senate decided they wished to be the Party Of NO:
The Senate vote was 59-41 to table the measure, which effectively kills it unless Democrats decide to bring it up again.

Can we hear it, boys and girls, for bi-partisanship, for reconciliation, for compromise? Hip-hip, hooray?

Apparently, no, we cannot.

From The Washington Post:
Democrats were backing a variant of the Boehner bill that Reid planned to introduce. That measure would make the same cuts to agency budgets and establish the same debt-reduction committee. But Reid’s legislation would also count more than $1 trillion in savings from winding down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, an accounting move Republicans decried as a gimmick. More important, the Democratic bill would extend the debt limit into 2013.

The "savings" from "winding down the war" are indeed false savings, as the money spent now is nothing like the money spent at the beginning of these conflicts. And extending the debt limit into 2013 is nothing more than political trickery so that the debt limit itself isn't Front And Center in terms of an Obama Election Issue.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Mr Obama has his own "personal issues" to confront:
Note to Mr Obama:

I think you could have some problems, sir. Might want to examine them. Perhaps get out more often. Play some additional rounds of golf. Ping-pong your head again for the teleprompters. Mix as necessary. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. Because, after all, contents may have settled during shipping.


Finally, in reflection, Mr Obama cast this whole matter as the Republicans and the TEA Party having shoved everything down the Demorats' throats unilaterally.

Excuse me, but isn't that precisely what occurred with ObamaKare, sir?

It also becomes apparent that there is at least one Republican in Fornicalia who, as issued from The Factory, does have a complete and functional set of balls.

California's McCLintock is a very good guy.
Are you telling us Paul Ryan voted with Boehner? I've gotta check into this.

I loved your comment at my place; excellent, so beautifully said, BZ. Thanks.

Z: he is indeed.

And if anyone on the GOP House side ISN'T listed, then he/she didn't vote against. Simple as that.

Thanks, Z

We are getting very close to finding out EXACTLY WHO this Barak Hussein Obama is!
He is destroying this Republic according to someone"s plan!
And who is this someone, and what allegiance does he have to him?
He certainly has no allegiance to our USA!
He told his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, to tell IRAN that it is A-OK for them to have working Nuclear bombs and missiles!!

So it is no big thing to me that this OBAMA wants to destroy the USA any way he can!

I am "ready and waiting" for the riots to happen in the streets.
Are You????
If you believe that this can all be "worked out economically", then you are a fool sir, or ma'am.

Remember 50% of the population is on welfare, and don't work, nor want to.
They will join in to go "take" from the people who have things!
Stealing under the flag of Obama!!
