Run run Sarah save Christmas
Because all the polished pols? They just keep surrendering and dealing and generally fucking things up, kicking the can down the road while they feather their own nests, and expect us to just accept it.
And it looks like we’re through with that nonsense. “Another conservative group comes out against expected budget deal”:
Another influential conservative group is warning legislators not to support the expected budget deal being hammered out by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and Democratic Sen. Patty Murray.
Americans for Prosperity, an economic freedom group, said Monday that lawmakers should oppose any budget deal that violates the $967 billion spending cap for 2014 mandated by sequestration.
Reports coming out of the secret budget negotiations between Ryan and Murray indicate that a deal to prevent another government shutdown next year would increase next year’s discretionary spending to more than $1 trillion, blowing through the spending caps agreed to by both parties in the Budget Control Act.
– I’m going to interject right here, briefly, to ask why there are “secret budget negotiations” in the first place? Think this is what the Founders and Framers intended of a representative republic?
Of course not. But this is exactly what it looks like when you’re being ruled — even as those who seek to rule you work hard to maintain the illusion that they are your public servants, mostly because they don’t want to end up tarred, feathered, and staring at the business end of a pitchfork.
The proposed Ryan-Murray deal, which would fund? the government past Jan. 15, would get rid of some sequester cuts and fund them with so-called revenue enhancements. The Washington Post reports that the deal could include “cuts to federal worker pensions and higher security fees for the nation’s airline passengers.”
The group’s opposition comes as conservatives are starting to speak out against the expected deal. The Daily Caller reported Monday that Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said he cannot support a deal under these terms.
And conservative group Heritage Action also said Monday that they “cannot support a budget deal that would increase spending in the near-term for promises of woefully inadequate long-term reductions.”
A deal is expected to be announced sometime this week.
Oh, stop your carping. You’re going to cost us the Senate and a Chris Christie presidency, you unnuanced Hobbits.
Now sit down, shut up, and get your asses in line. I mean, bipartisan. Which is like magic. Duh!
