“CONSERVATIVE” GROUP BLASTS BUDGET BACKED BY  THE LIBERAL LEADERS IT JUST ENDORSED

Days after delivering the gavel of the U.S. House of Representatives to liberal “Republican” Paul Ryan, a group of so-called “conservative” lawmakers now wants to be taken seriously as defenders of taxpayers.

The so-called “House Freedom Caucus” – which includes U.S. Reps. Jeff Duncan, Mick Mulvaney and Mark Sanford – issued a statement this week blasting a proposed two-year federal budget plan that would drown America deeper in debt.

(For more on that scam, CLICK HERE).

Here’s the statement …

The latest budget deal continues the sad pattern of the past five years: a fiscal monstrosity gets negotiated in secret with Obama, Reid, and Pelosi; the American people and their representatives get shut out of the process; and the bill is rushed through the House on short notice and without proper scrutiny or the ability to offer amendments. This deal is an affront to open, accountable, and limited government. It plunges our nation into debt to the tune of nearly $20 trillion, busts the spending caps enacted by Congress just a few years ago, perpetuates our looming entitlement crisis by pilfering money from Social Security, and contains budget and accounting gimmicks that are manifestly fraudulent. 

All of that is true …

This biennial budget deal is every bit as bad as these lawmakers say … and worse.

“In addition to shattering the previously agreed upon spending caps, such a spending plan would handcuff the ability of the next president – and the next U.S. Congress – to shape the nation’s fiscal policy,” we wrote earlier this month.  “And seeing as there’s almost universal agreement that the next president and the next Congress will be more fiscally conservative than the current president and current Congress – this is nothing more than a way for the establishment to keep the gravy train flowing.”

 

Unfortunately, the current crop of “conservatives” now loudly protesting the profligate excess in Washington, D.C. just surrendered to the status quo forces driving that gravy train.  In fact one so-called “conservative” leader – U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy – is actually nominating the next liberal leader.

What a joke …

Fidelity to freedom and free markets dictates that adherents maintain consistency of course – and the courage of their convictions.  If they are inconsistent – or lacking in courage – then they cannot lay claim to having such convictions at all.

“Republicans” sold out to the status quo back in January when they reelected John Boehner as their leader.  And they are selling out again now in nominating Paul Ryan.

Worse, that sellout is perpetuating the ongoing trend in our nation’s capital in which Democrats have become full-blown socialists, “Republicans” have become Democrats and “conservatives” have become two-faced hypocrites.

Is there one honest leader left in Washington, D.C.?

Unless you go to D.C. and see how the system works you can not really understand this situation.The Freedom Caucus is a Minority and I suggest you folks that think you can handle it better run for the office. Things on the inside and at the time it happens look much different than what we in the public see.
I say let us get back to anarchy,wear our side arms and back to survival of the fittest!

“I say let us get back to anarchy,wear our side arms and back to survival of the fittest!”

That actually might be more civilizing than what we’ve got now. Society would be incredibly polite if everyone was walking around open carry.

Primaries? What a great idea. Every single one of these characters need to face a hard and harsh primary. A few will lose and the rest will shape up real fast.

And nothing will change, other than they may vote in others with even wilder rhetoric. The ultra conservatives aka the tea party do not represent the majority in this country.

That is a bad guys only scenario. The regular folks don’t have AK 47s, just rakes and shovels. When everybody is armed, Switzerland, things tend to stay more civil.

i just took a look, they are just below yemen, and boy look how things are going over there, from what i just read half the guns in switzerland are for the militia and are not loaded.

swiss October 28, 2015 at 2:04 pm

Yeah, but don’t the Swiss require all males to join the military and then retain their weapons as part of being in the service till age 30? Which is why so many have guns in that country?

stumpknocker October 28, 2015 at 2:06 pm

and they are required by law to have no ammunition for them unless they are on active duty

Why didn’t the Freedom boys mention Boehner doing the wheeling and dealing too? He was in the middle of this latest horse trading.

Well the Freedumb Caucus once again does the only thing they can do – whine.

And all they will ever be able to do since the teabillies are a minority in this country and congress. They deserve all the scorn being thrown their way (read some of their Facebook accounts) for leading their supporters on for years. Gowdy was chosen as the one to nominate Boehner because they believed he was still beloved by the tea people.

Why not, they are pissing away more money giving Planned Parenthood the Benghazi treatment. Obviously, the country is in good shape if the commissioner and PP are what the GOP deem important to waste money over.

It was 2015 and South Carolina’s gutless RINO members of the RINO U.S. House were partying well
They’d ALL (except Jeff Duncan) voted for Obama-Door-Mat-Boehner
to blow conservatives to…
This dishonor roll of gutless, lying scumbags included Trey-Sure-I-Gave-Obama-Fast Track-Gowdy to start
Then there was Mick-What’s-In-It-For-ME-Mulvaney who piled on conservatives to play his back-stabbing part
And let’s not leave out Tom-Sure-I’m-A-Flaming-Lib-Rice who’d sell his grandma’s jugular for personal gain
And who can forget Mark-I-Walked-Out-On-My-Wife-And-Four-Sons-Sanford—serial adulterer with no brain
Rounding out this cast of dirtbags is arrogant flag-ripping I-Lie-To-Conservatives-Joe Wilson himself
Doesn’t give a *amn about NOT letting YOU vote on the flag because he IS a RINO Lilliputian elf
So these RINO scum are STILL betting on the come by voting for FELLOW RINO Paul Ryan as well
Let-In-30-MILLION-MORE-Illegals-Ryan…meeting back-door with Obama—telling you to go to…
But then 2016 rolled in with a roaring Tea Party win and all of the above RINOs had to leave town fast
Don’t look now you ingrates but that political fire you smell burning?…the last of your gutless RINO… !!!

Your fellow republicans must love it when the loudest republican in the room is screaming the RINO word, accusing everyone else of not being conservative enough, and choosing to represent himself with an image of the confederate flag.

Tell us again how the Tea Party is not a bunch of ill-educated racists.

Lone Ranger October 28, 2015 at 6:41 pm

ThreePalms of course had no problem with the RINO word because he was a poster-boy, freeloading Dimwit ACORN member
But now he DOES want you to keep electing SC’s House RINO scum and hopes as he you’re brain-dead–don’t remember !!!
