Harry Reid: Fiscal Cliff Deal
Must Include Raising Debt Ceiling

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/28/2012 2:39:07 PM

In addition to raising taxes on those making over $250,000, Harry Reid and President Barack Obama want to raise the debt ceiling as part of the fiscal cliff negotiations. Reid on Tuesday said raising the debt ceiling must also be included in any fiscal cliff deal because he did not want to negotiate separately with Republicans over the debt ceiling six weeks later. “We would be somewhat foolish to work out something on stopping us from going over the cliff and then a month or six weeks later Republicans pull the same game they did before and say,

Comments:
It sickens and enrages me what the Democrats are doing to this country and the Republicans act like spineless fools. The fact that spending is never, ever mentioned in these discussions is outrageous. It´s so very depressing.

How about the GOP insisting that the Senate PASS A BUDGET as a condition on any fiscal cliff negotiations?

How about the Republicans do anything but cave every time?

Just once - try it just to see if it might work.

Does anyone else notice that the Democrats are telling us what we should include, but we never hear what they will put on the table? Rush was just talking about that...I guess because they won the election and we didn´t.

Yes, how about a budget, a standard of no more than 19% GDP for spending, the penny mac bill for cutting spending, entitlement reform. No, negotiating with these weenies who are in a campaign mode 100% of the time won´t work. Buchanan said pass 2 bills: retain the payroll tax cut and retain the Bush tax cuts for another year and wait. Let the Rats sign it or leave it on the table and own the cliff. There are few good options with these folks.

ther Dims know they have no leverage once the Repugs agree to raise taxes on the rich.

I an not sure of the depths of Repug stupidity. I would recommend they only pass the Bush "tax cuts" but without including the "rich" (let the Dimms define rich).

If the Dimms want to go over the cliff, let them. Kinda hard for them to blame Repugs at that point. Once the rich are taxed everything is fine, right?

Also, we will find out what kind of man Romney is tomorrow.

I recommend we take the dive off the fiscal cliff. This is the only way to get the mandatory domestic spending cuts. Once off the cliff the House (because that is where all budget matters must originate) pass a permanent tax relief bill reinstating the Bush Tax rates. Let Obama and the Democrats vote against middle class tax relief, good for 2014. Then, pass a second bill to relieve the military of 1/2 the mandatory budget cuts. Let Obama and the Democrats vote against supporting our military during a time of war. Another winning issue for 2014. I sure hope someone in the GOP Leadership reads Lucianne. This is a no brainer...the only way we the people will get the domestic spending cuts.

Make them propose and vote on a budget in the Senate first.

Then we´ll talk, Harry.

McConnell and others should be demanding the Senate Democrats pass a budget - put their names on the line.

Do NOT allow the debt ceiling to be increased as it will only allow them to push this off just like they have for the last 4 years.

Obama & Reid are far craftier than smart, for they know how to have the media blame the GOP for everything they and the Dems do wrong. Don´t increase the debt ceiling, then seniors won ´t get SS checks. Don´t agree upon raising taxes on the "rich", then retailers have a bleak Christmas. Ask for entitlement reform, then the poor and elderly won´t get to see a doctor. Act to reduce growth of spending, then AIDs sufferers go naked. The old, white GOP not only is soulless, it is heartless. No matter how false, this is the narrative that national media will run with, especially with Christmas approaching.

Refuse to raise the debt ceiling any further.

Take a stand.

What could anyone do?
The GOP controls the House.
Time for GOP to stick it to ´em.
Constitution gives House the power to tax and spend.

I´d like to see the predictions on the results of this.
"Default."
"Bankruptcy."
"Over the cliff without a chute."

Go over the Fiscal Cliff to be sure we´re all in this together.
(We can reverse the Tax Increases when we have cut enough wasted spending to do so.)

Leave the Debt Ceiling frozen to require the Federal Reserve to cover all overspending by expanding the money supply. (They already do so by buying up our expiring debt.)

Put Obama on Quarterly Probationary Budgeting. (The federal workforce must have maximum skin in the game, and Obama must face the music every quarter.)
- Freeze every Department´s Budget in inflated dollars, with zero growth trajectory and zero inflation offset, until the Budget is balanced.
- Freeze compensation of the non-Defense federal workforce until the Budget
is balanced.
- Replace Continuing Budget Resolutions with Quarterly Probationary Budgets that make real quarterly cuts across the board for every department.
- Reduce each non-Defense Department´s Quarterly Budget by 1% from the prior
Quarter as a cut in Waste, Fraud and Abuse, and define its unique performance metric for return on spending.
- Institute quarterly House Reviews of every Department´s performance before passing the next Quarterly Budget.
- Support the Reviews with a House Budget Oversight Department (BOD) to (1) verify spending control, (2) report return on spending, and (3) investigate Waste, Fraud and Abuse by Department. Fund the BOD with an allocation of 1% from every Department´s Budget. [Let Romney run it.]

I´ve heard nothing but what the socialists want - higher tax rates, debt ceiling increase, no spending cuts. Why should there be any kind of deal? What are they willing to give up to get all this? To hell with them.

All we can be certain of is nothing will change, spending will go up and taxes will go up. We do not have a representative government any more. We have government by Crime Family.

Dr. K is right. Republicans have one card, one card only to play. If they do not do this, there won´t be disagreement any longer that all is lost for the GOP. Allow us to go over the fiscal cliff. So WHAT if Pubbies get "blamed?" When is it time for Boehner and company to stop making decisions because they will get "blamed" for something?? Ths move would ruin Obama´s second term! Do it. If you love this country at all anymore, Mr. Speaker, just do it.

After three years on a vegan diet, former President Bill Clinton says he doesn’t crave steak. But cutting back on bread has been tough. "Heavily processed carbs, you really have to control that," Clinton told AARP in a recent interview about his eating habits. The former president, now 66, went on a strict diet after a health scare in 2010, and he says he´s kept it up. "I just decided that I was the high-risk person [for heart problems], and I didn´t want to fool with this anymore. And I wanted to live to be a grandfather," Clinton said.

The House Judiciary Committee provided Republican members of Congress Wednesday with an immigration packet to help prep lawmakers heading back to their districts over August recess. “This recess packet has been put together to help you communicate to your constituents the importance of immigration reform and the House Republican plan to produce solutions that actually fix the problems that plague our immigration systems,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte wrote in the packet introduction. The “Immigration Resource Kit,” obtained by The Daily Caller, features four sections, the first three laying out the committee’s goals, starting with strengthening border security and immigration enforcement.

Four years after United Nations auditors declared that the U.N.’s billion-dollar program for moving people and equipment on peacekeeping charter flights was a mess, the world organization still spends too much to rent airplanes and helicopters, still favors a few suppliers of equipment over those who might want to bid for the work, and still doesn’t have the tools to keep track of its sprawling and overpriced system.

Unfortunately, the fall of Rome is a pattern repeated by empires throughout history ... including ours? A group of libertarians gathered in Las Vegas recently for an event called “FreedomFest.” We debated whether America will soon fall, as Rome did. Historian Carl Richard said that today’s America resembles Rome. The Roman Republic had a constitution, but Roman leaders often ignored it. “Marius was elected consul six years in a row, even though under the constitution (he) was term-limited to one year.” Sounds like New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg. “We have presidents of both parties legislating by executive order,

If Congress passes a continuing resolution (CR) that defunds President Obama´s signature health care law, and the president refuses to sign it, any resulting government shutdown will be Obama’s fault, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Tuesday on the Senate floor. "If we pass a budget that pays for everything except for Obamacare, and the President says he´ll veto that, it is he who wants to shut down the government. It is he who is basically saying, ´I will shut down the government unless it pays for Obamacare.´ And that is an unreasonable position.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
