Senate kills House spending bill

quote:

The 54-46 vote officially tabled both proposals the House GOP passed early Sunday morning, one of which would have funded the government while delaying the health law for a year, and the other of which would have repealed one of the Affordable Care Act’s tax increases.

re: Senate kills House spending bill
Fastest I've ever seen the Senate do anything. And the 54-46 obviously is strictly along party lines. After watching the vote live on C-Span2, I thought nothing would disgust me more than the tabling of such an important piece of legislation in the blink of an eye - but I was wrong. Because ever since the vote that fat frick Barbara Mikulski has been slobbering all over the microphone and getting hysterical about her government-employed constituents not going to work tomorrow.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid bundled both of those proposals into a single vote, which made it easier to round up the support to kill them.




He really could have done this yesterday morning....had to wait until the afternoon before the deadline?

No surprise there. Let's hope Boehner grows a spine.

Their actual headline is a bit more innocuous than one might expect.

quote:

Senate Rejects House’s Terms on Budget With Shutdown Near

I'm guessing it may get revised later to be a bit more inflammatory toward the tea party.

So the House is to only push legislation Obama approves of?

If you know the Senate (not Obama) isnt going to approve it, the only reason to do it is political show. - just like voting 12,235,635 times to repeal Obama care this year.

100% symbolic

What is the strategy by the House Republicans?

You can't even see a resemblance of a tactic without second guessing or back stabbing.

If the Senate would have passed the other bill it would have been on repeal of a medical device tax? Awesome, a few companies are pissed about an Obamacare Tax, give fundraising money to GOP lawmakers and are placed above the American people.

House Republicans look like complete amateurs right now.

What do they want?

You will not repeal it, so get something meaningful. A one year delay isn't in the cards.

You might want to get a screen shot of that and the article. They've edited before to "soften" the blow to some politicians.
