Right...expenditures that have already been authorized.

"Creating" wealth out of thin air is what causes inflation.

For 4T spent, you think the economy is doing "Good"?

So we're authorizing expenditures of money we don't have? Gee I can't figure out why there's a problem.

The GOP should fight to the end that Obamacare, in all of its glory, be implemented immediately. No delays, no exemptions. Let those bastards that voted this in own it. If it fails, it's Obama's policy, if it is as good as they claim, the Repubes can take credit for working with the other side and claim victory. Either way, they win.

Give them everything they want. I said this last time. If they truly believe its bad policy, let it collapse and let people suffer. Honestly, its the only way people will learn, they need the pain. All that's happening now is a delay of the inevitable.

They won't learn they'll just blame somebody else.

How about


1) The Republicans can raise the ceiling

or

2) Everyone's bank accounts can be zeroed out, and it will be the Republicans' fault.



Those should be the only two choices.


Say no to economic terrorists!

Democrats crying about defunding the health care reform. I don't see how that's any different than defunding Yucca mountain which is their current ploy (after the courts said Obama through the NRC couldn't ignore the law).

I should mention that the federal government is actually funding lawyers to fight against Yucca (chump change, but every million counts):

quote:

Ninety percent of the funding for the contract extension comes from the federal government, but that money cannot be used in any lawsuits filed by Nevada in challenging the project, Adams said. The federal money can only be used by the legal team in any licensing proceedings before the commission.

This.

The CR is based on the last budget passed. Wanna guess which one?

2009

Why is this important? Because the "one time" stimulus of $800 BILLION dollars was passed as a "supplement" to that budget, which means it was part of that budget, which means that the CRs that have been passed since 2009 all include that "one time" $$$$$. So, the 2010, 2011 & 2012 CRs have spent $2.4 TRILLION dollars of "one time" money, soon to be $3.2 TRILLION.

So, to reiterate...

WH tells fed agencies they should determine "which employees would be necessary for the agency's continued performance" in case of shutdown


and it should then fire everyone one of those "unnecessary" employees
