Schumer Accuses ‘MAGA House Republicans’
of Risking Default with Spending Cuts Bill

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 5/1/2023 5:12:51 PM

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) doubled down on his rejection of House Republicans’ debt limit bill Monday, accusing the GOP of risking default and vowing to hold Senate hearings to “expose the true impact” of the legislation. Schumer wrote in a “Dear Colleague” letter that the Senate would begin examining the bill, which passed in the House last week, in a Budget Committee hearing Thursday.“This bill was hastily drafted and forced through the House at a break-neck speed,” Schumer wrote, arguing it was not vetted in a House committee the way bills typically are.

American families have had to cut their budgets, spend less and look for ways to save more. Why shouldn't the federal government follow our lead and do the obvious to help the country out as a whole? I cannot believe that there isn't a hell of a lot of fat that can be trimmed. The people we have put into office and entrusted our future to have failed us (on all sides) and basically are pathetic characters in this play. I am tired of getting screwed by these useless "betters". Time to man us, suck it up, and do what is right. CUT THE SPENDING.

Schumer risks economic catastrophe by spending us into the ground, printing money to pay for his vote buying useless programs and cranking up inflation to the detriment of everyone but especially the poor, middle class, retired and those on fixed income such as the disabled. But it's all Trump's fault that he doesn't care about people or the country.

Even with all the hyperbole…if the pubbies bill is necessary to MAGA, then just do it. Scummier cannot convince me that clawing back emergency dollars for a former urgency is wrong, that the vote seeking, ill formed, likely unconstitutional plan to give $$ to former students is appropriate (AOC has a Tesla instead of paying back her loans), or that requiring a little effort from abled bodies on the dole (look around at all the help wanted signs) would be inappropriate

Default is a lie. The government can easily prioritize spending to service debt, and not spend in other areas.

Schumer is a bald faced liar. Any and all efforts to slow spending are GOOD. Shutting down the government would be GOOD. I actually think that a default would ultimately be a GOOD THING. We need to shake things up, stop their insane spending, by any means whatsoever.

During Tuesday’s White House briefing, Karine Jean-Pierre declined to comment on the ongoing child support trial in Arkansas involving Hunter Biden, the President’s son.

When asked if the President and First Lady were monitoring the trial, KJP simply replied, “I’m not going to speak to that from here.” When pressed further about why the Bidens have not publicly acknowledged their seventh grandchild, KJP responded, “I’m not going to speak to that.” WATCH:

The Texas gunman who shot dead five people, including a nine-year-old, had an elaborate death cult shrine and links to the criminal underworld. Francisco Oropesa, 38, opened fire in his neighbors' Cleveland home, about 40 miles north of Houston, on Friday after they asked him to stop firing the gun in his backyard. Oropesa, who is an illegal immigrant from Mexico previously referred to as Oropeza by police, fled the scene as a nationwide manhunt unfolded. An anonymous law enforcement officer working on the case told the Center for Immigration Studies that a shrine honors the 'Santa Muerte death cult' was found in his room following the massacre.

Two parishioners at a Latin Mass Catholic Church have reported “suspicious activity” from what appeared to be FBI vehicles this past February, just a month after the FBI’s Richmond field office submitted a now-rescinded internal memo warning of danger from “radical-traditional Catholics.” The story was first reported by The Daily Signal. Two witnesses told the outlet that they saw two vehicles approach the church, drive through the parking lot as if they were marking down license plate numbers, then leave. This was reported on two separate occasions at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel in Linden, Virginia, located about 63 miles outside of Washington D.C.

Sow the wind and reap the whirlwind. Joe Biden is arguably the, if not one of the, worst presidents in American history. I use the word “president” loosely, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. By any national metric, we’re all far worse off now than we were before Biden stumbled through the doors of the Oval Office like a lobotomized polio victim. His “stiff gait” is an indicator of serious neurological decline which has become a brand of sorts. It’s Biden’s version of Trump’s rambunctious mane. But, instead of signaling a raucous virility, Biden’s halting and unbalanced gate communicates fundamental weakness and morbidity.

There are still 553 days until Election Day 2024, but right now, things look pretty bleak for President Joe Biden. Shortly after Biden announced his re-election campaign — not with a live event featuring thousands of cheering supporters but with a weird video posted on his website — his job approval rating among the U.S. public slipped to 37%, Gallup reports.That’s just slightly more than 1 in 3 people — not a winning number. In the 2020 election, Biden won 51.3% of the vote, so that’s a 14.3% drop in support. And for the record, 37% is the lowest Gallup has measured for him to date.

Chicago has long pledged to welcome migrants. But a tenfold increase in recent days has taxed resources.

President Joe Biden is dispatching 1,500 soldiers to the Southern border to stem the surge of illegal immigrants that are expected to follow next Thursday’s expiration of Title 42, a pandemic-era public-health measure that allows Border Patrol to immediately expel illegal immigrants. The active-duty Army units will assist Border Patrol and will be armed, though they will only be permitted to use their weapons in self-defense. Following a request by the DHS, the Department of Defense agreed to “provide a temporary increase of an additional 1,500 military personnel, for 90 days, to supplement CBP efforts at the border,” an unnamed US official said in a statement provided to CNN.

Four years ago, Jill Biden was hesitant about her husband making a White House run, fearing the toll it could take on him and the family. In the months before Joe Biden formally announced he’d make a reelection bid, she had no such reservations. Privately, the first lady encouraged her husband to run again while giving him the space he needed to process the decision in the way he traditionally does: with extensive deliberations, consideration of the burden it would place on his family, and a bit of classic Biden hemming and hawing. She was involved in all the high-level discussions around the decision, giving counsel when she felt it was necessary.

Once the sun sets on the Himalayas and temperatures drop, a cacophony of eerie noises erupts deep within the glaciers around Mount Everest. Researchers led by the glaciologist Evgeny Podolskiy have found that the chorus of crashing and splintering noises in the high-altitude glaciers is a result of sharp drops in temperature after dark that causes ice to crack. The team pinpointed the cause of the sounds in 2018 after spending more than a week trekking through the Nepalese Himalayas to test the seismic activity of the Trakarding-Trambau Glacier system there. Dr Podolskiy and his team spent three weeks shivering on the glacier in full view of Mt Everest,
