“Republican” House Passes $1.15 Trillion Boondoggle

GOTTA LOVE THE PARTY OF “LESS GOVERNMENT” By a 316-113 vote, the “Republican” U.S. House of Representatives has passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill that effectively rubber stamps president Barack Obama‘s radical agenda – and blows past modest spending caps agreed upon back in 2011. Wait … why did America…

GOTTA LOVE THE PARTY OF “LESS GOVERNMENT”

By a 316-113 vote, the “Republican” U.S. House of Representatives has passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill that effectively rubber stamps president Barack Obama‘s radical agenda – and blows past modest spending caps agreed upon back in 2011.

Wait … why did America elect “Republicans” again?

Good question …

As U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona (one of the GOP lawmakers who voted against this abomination) wrote yesterday, “Republicans have been elected around the country on the simple promise of reducing spending and the size of the federal government.”

Did they do that?  No.  In fact they are spending $50 billion more than what they promised they would spend after passing an already weak “deficit reduction” agreement back in August of 2011.

And the bill was pushed by U.S. Speaker Paul Ryan – who was elected two months ago after another liberal GOP leader, John Boehner, resigned.

So … what was the point of getting rid of Boehner again?

There wasn’t …

The new boss is (much to our chagrin) the same as the old boss.

“I wish I could put all the blame on big spending Democrats, liberals who seek to bankrupt our nation and others who are ignorant of the fiscal crisis within which we live,” Gosar wrote.  “But I can’t.  Congress is controlled by Republicans. So, this massive and wasteful spending bill is on Republican leadership—who continues the pattern I have seen for five years now.”

Among South Carolina “Republicans,” U.S. Reps. Jeff Duncan, Trey Gowdy, Mick Mulvaney and Mark Sanford voted against the bill.  Longtime liberal GOP House members Joe Wilson and Tom Rice voted for it.

Rice, of course, is the guy S.C. governor Nikki Haley endorsed back in 2012 – hailing him as someone who would “do the right thing” for taxpayers in Washington, D.C.

Yeah …

Anyway, the House measure will now be voted on by the “Republican” Senate – which is all but assured of passing it.  At that point it will be signed by Obama – and the ass-raping of taxpayers will continue unabated.

The Colonel (R) December 18, 2015 at 1:34 pm

There was nothing treasonous about my decision to support taking the Confederate flag down. I never swore allegiance to that state and hence could have not committing treason against it. For any number of years I actively supported the flag where it was I have simply come to the point in my life where I realized it was doing more harm than good.

Obama has tried to destroy America:

1.The Left is following the inescapable logic of its fundamental rejection of human nature and common sense. Obama’s active support, our elites are now determined to make us all cooperate in same-sex “marriage,” to accept a radical redefinition of gender, and to pay for other people’s contraceptives and elective abortions. Freedom of speech, religious liberty, the rights of conscience, and even intelligible grammar and clear thought, must all be sacrificed to the gods of sexual liberation. Prognosis: sustained unpleasantness, with a chance of civil unrest.

rockyverdudsuglysquatters December 19, 2015 at 8:59 am

2. A nuclear Iran. Supporters of Obama’s controversial Iran nuclear deal argue that it has bought us ten years — a decade for Israel to figure out how to defend itself against a nuclear-armed theocracy bent on its destruction.

rockyverdudsuglysquatters December 19, 2015 at 9:01 am

3. A flat-lined “recovery.” Job growth remains so weak that our definition of what constitutes a “recovery” has been redefined downward. We’re generating a mere 230,000 new non-farm jobs a month — too few to achieve escape velocity. Although Democrats are celebrating the fall of headline unemployment below 5 percent, the real unemployment rate is closer to 10 percent. Labor-force participation is historically low. Real wage growth is stalled. The stock market is essentially flat. The Fed has held interest rates at zero percent for seven years now, flooding the economy with cheap money; and while it is teasing markets with hints of a rate hike, under current conditions that could easily kill off what “recovery” there is. Prognosis: continued malaise, with a chance of recession.

rockyverdudsuglysquatters December 19, 2015 at 9:02 am

4. Higher energy costs. On its way out the door, the Obama EPA has finalized an ambitious trio of massive environmental regulations aimed at winning its war on coal, war on carbon, and war on ponds and ditches. If the costly new rules aren’t stopped, U.S. coal-fired power plants, and affordable energy prices, can be expected to undergo manmade extinction. Prognosis: the chills.

rockyverdudsuglysquatters December 19, 2015 at 9:03 am

5.Health care despair. Economists are predicting large increases in ObamaCare premiums and deductibles for 2016 and 2017. In a normal insurance market, premiums and deductibles move in opposite directions. That’s no longer the case under the ironically named, and still unpopular, Affordable Care Act. Meanwhile, enrollment in Obamacare seems to have leveled off and the exchanges show signs of having entered a death spiral. Twelve of 23 non-profit co-ops in the exchanges have gone belly up. This month UnitedHealthcare, the nation’s largest insurer, announced it has lost so much money on Obamacare, it will pull out of the program altogether unless it receives a multi-billion-dollar bailout.

Seriously, in interviews today, they said this bill had everything they wanted and needed. The Republicans caved to the Democrats. Why did the Republicans cave? It is getting to near year’s end and the Democrats knew the Republicans must pass a bill or get accused of shutting down the government. The Democrats had nothing to lose. The Republicans would be portrayed in the MSM as being stubborn and not doing the best for this country. The Democrats could remain in a non-negotiations state and not even “give” on any issues and they would not be blamed for any discourse within the legislative branch.
It won’t change as long as the MSM remains firmly in the camp of the Democrats.

UPDATE:THE HILL – Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) missed Friday’s Senate vote approving a massive $1.8 trillion end-of-the-year spending bill and tax package — a day after he suggested that he would try to slow the legislation down.

The Florida Republican, who is running for president, was the only 2016 contender to miss the vote, which is the Senate’s final vote of the year.

Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), three other presidential candidates, all voted against the the legislation.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a fourth GOP presidential candidate from the Senate, backed the bill. Tim Scott voted against it.
