House GOP to propose 1-yr debt ceiling extension in exchange for some goodies


quote:

House Republicans will propose increasing the debt limit for one year, while delaying Obamacare for the same amount of time.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) unveiled the plan during a presentation in a closed-door meeting of House Republicans Wednesday morning. The debt ceiling legislation, which House Republicans are beginning to craft, will also include tax reform instructions, language to urge the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline and other health care and non health care budgetary reforms.

I disagree...it is kicking the can down the road again. Obama and the democrats wanted the ACA. Let them live with it. It is not going away so we might as well go ahead and embrace it in all of its splendid glory.

Instead, tell Obama no debt limit increase unless Keystone is green-lighted. No debt limit unless Obama quits unilaterally postponing the implementation of Obamacare. No debt limit increase unless all individuals that were on the ground in Benghazi are made available for congressional inquiry. No debt limit increase unless all parties involved in IRS targeting are made available for congressional inquiry.

This is fricking ridiculous, nobody has a goddamn spine in Washington.

The right ripped and ripped on Obama for adding to the debt and kicking the can down the road and now they want to do the same thing as long as they get some pork.

They should stand up there and say "We are shutting the govt down, everyone will suffer unless we pass a balanced budget amendment and begin living within our means"

but it's not, he keeps postponing certain things. Postpone the whole thing for a bit and get a good, cohesive strategy. Once it;s implemented, it;s over.

ell Obama no debt limit increase unless Keystone is green-lighted.


article says that's included.

this would do just that.

Never gonna happen. benghazi is a shitstorm. I think that some of the R's that know what happened dont want this one coming out either.

The IRS thing is solving itself, every day new documents, new dominos fall. Save this one.

no spine?
dude they all want the same thing - bigger government, more power, more regulations, more pork spending to keep themselves in office.

the only people that want something different are the libertarian tea partiers (as opposed to some of the so called tea party members that are really just super conservative whackos) and they have been marginalized by both sides because they are scared shitless of them.

At first glance I don't mind the deal as it gives more time to put more tea party/ libertarian seats in Congress before Obamacare's full implementation. But I doubt Obama and the demos go for it. The demos want the shutdown if the narrative is negative for republicans.

Although I think the democrats will be wrong and will likely mean more seats for the tea party/ libertarians republicans.

re: House GOP to propose 1-yr debt ceiling extension in exchange for some goodies


I'd be okay with extending the ceiling under those conditions.

My sticking points:

-Every federal agency's budget is frozen at 2013 for 3 years. No one gets a bigger budget.
- Get out of the way of Keystone
- Delay Obamacare personal mandate until 2015.

I think that's reasonable. It doesn't kill Obamacare. It doesn't shut down the government....unless the democrats do it.

Obama has been mentioning shut down more than the Speaker and majority whip. The democrats want to shut down the government. They probably think it will help them in the mid terms.

well this is now the third major "debt ceiling crisis" of the past 3 years. the first one was a bait and switch by the DEMs, so naturally there will be issues of trust going forward. the first one was supposed to solve the issue, then BOOM, we need more taxes and more spending at the next DC crisis

I can't support proposed CR. It's a #StealthDebtLimitHike; it exempts interest from debt limit, effectively raising debt limit permanently.
