I fail to see how this is AT ALL a partisan issue as you'd make it out to be here.
Yes, Boehner is the Speaker of the House and YES, under our system of Government, spending bills have to originate in the House. Having said
that...It's important to note when the Senate flat says NOTHING THE HOUSE PASSES HAS ANY CHANCE WHATSOEVER.
Why bother? Why should Boehner try? Now, the Constitution is why, and I agree, Boehner is in deriliction of his duty. So is Obama and Reid however.
First, this came to us in the Budget Control Act of 2011, specifically. That was an act passed by the Congress and signed by the President. That means
ALL three men agree and signed off on this nightmare pact.
Now, we face the end of the line ....unless they kick the can yet again....and it's all the Republicans fault that they won't be FORCED to do 100%
of the bidding of the Democrat party? THIS is why BOTH are guilty as all hell and should BOTH be run out of office, to the last man and woman for
It's been a BI-Partisan problem for 2 years now. It was a Bi-Partisan problem in November and December...and TOGETHER, Republicans and Democrats
collectively kicked this rotten can from Jan 1 to the end of this month. Not a very hard kick, but then, it wasn't meant to be. Just enough to
re-cast the political scene and maybe play this for more political benefit.
Rome burns while people still play an R/D blame game. Well... the fire doesn't care who set the torches. It's just going to burn all of us together.
Together they COULD solve this. Together, they've chosen NOT to by omission of action.
