After talking to no one, except the diehard Teaparty creationist base, and the other Teapublicans secretly having obstruction organisms, Cruz is raising barrels of dough for a run for the Presidency. And no matter how some Senate Republicans have criticized the showboat flaming narcissist, they are counting on the House to really mess things up for Obama, and their fellow Americans.
The National Review, in its concern for objective reporting, has obtained the laundry list the House will demand to not shutdown our Government. And it is so against the social welfare of the 99%, I have shared it verbatim:
“…Voting to increase the debt ceiling is always a brutal vote* for lawmakers, because it’s very unpopular with their constituents back home. House conservatives also worry about undermining the Senate process and particularly Senator Ted Cruz’s fight in that chamber. For example, there have been efforts to keep the House’s plans under the radar until after the final cloture vote in order not to hinder Cruz’s push for the GOP to filibuster.”
- One Year Debt Limit Increase
- Not a dollar amount increase, but suspending the debt limit until the end of December 2014.
- Similar to what we did earlier this year.
- Want the year-long to align with the year delay of Obamacare.
- One Year Obamacare delay
- Tax Reform Instructions
- Similar to a bill we passed last fall, laying out broad from Ryan Budget principles for what tax reform should look like.
- Gives fast track authority for tax reform legislation
- Energy and regulatory reforms to promote economic growth
- Includes pretty much every jobs bill we have passed this year and last Congress
- All of these policies have important positive economic effects.
- Energy provisions
- Keystone Pipeline
- Coal Ash regulations
- Offshore drilling
- Energy production on federal land
- EPA Carbon regulations
- Regulatory reform
- REINS Act
- Regulatory process reform
- Consent decree reform
- Blocking Net Neutrality
- Mandatory Spending Reforms
- Mostly from the sequester replacement bills we passed last year
- Federal Employee retirement reform
- Ending the Dodd Frank bailout fund
- Transitioning CFPB funding to Appropriations
- Child Tax Credit Reform to prevent fraud
- Repealing the Social Services Block grant
- Health Spending Reforms
- Means testing Medicare
- Repealing a Medicaid Provider tax gimmick
- Tort reform
- Altering Disproportion Share Hospitals
- Repealing the Public Health trust Fund
So it is crystal clear the House and the Senate have an agenda, from their best friends the lobbyists who work lovingly for the Kochs, to sabotage the public good by holding America hostage to their demands or else force a shutdown that could lead to a default. A default is what venture capitalists who do not intend to properly fund a business initially call a: “look-see.” The Teapublican look see means: let’s take a gambol with America’s credit rating, with how safe the world regards America’s ability to always fund its debt, like the bonds bought by foreign governments and the wealthiest citizens of the globe. Let’s see if this will bring the Democrats to their knees and agree to screw the public good with us for something nonpartisan for the news to report.
The National Review, long a skewed slanted mouthpiece against social welfare, points out that it is always difficult raise the debt ceiling* because it is unpopular with conservative constituents. Wow, what brilliant constituents these Koch pawns are, knowing nothing about the fact the increasing the ceiling is nothing but an authorization to pay their Country’s existing bills.
“…House leadership is planning to pass the bill as early as Saturday. The bill itself is expected to be released imminently. The outline is not a huge surprise — most of the provisions have been floated or leaked, but it’s interesting to see the breadth of the demands laid out on paper.”
The Review could have pointed out that although the House GOP will pass the bill it will never get through the Senate, and the President will veto it because it is outrageously and inhumanly against the social welfare of the 99%.
Could the National Review, only in the interest of objectively creating informed constituent opinion, just simply explain, that seldom has the ceiling not been increased; however, when Obama (a black president) was elected it became something that Republicans refused to deal with in good faith, and that to not raise the debt ceiling would be akin to not paying your credit card? Maybe even Teapublican constituents could understand if their puppeteers – the wrong wing Press told the truth occasionally.
I don’t know what the Koch-pawns can comprehend, but I do know that Jesus would not be pleased with how they are so upset by Obama’s complexion, because “their lord and savior” more likely than not was not lighter than our President; and wasn’t Jesus for taking care of the poor and loving your/thy neighbor.
Would Jesus have not cared about 50,000 Americans dying annually simply because they could not get health insurance; how about 3 million hungry kids with an untenable reduction in food stamps; and repealing the Public Health Trust Fund – is nice? (Borat)
Maybe the constituents could look in a mirror to notice they are among the 99% who the nasty, self-interested geometrically disingenuous schmucks they elect are totally unconcerned for. Maybe these constituents could realize their own social welfare in also on the line. But ranting against Obama, Socialism and health insurance is what comes out of the snake’s head. And Optics and rhetoric are all that matter – as long as the Kochs are pleased, and the NRA and all the conservative foundation snake tanks.
Definitely America and the people who pay to get screwed don’t matter. So let’s take a look-see.
