Agreed, but everything that came over from the House was in the form of bills was it not?
Yes they were bills'. Bills containing language that defunded the ACA, with the Debt Ceiling CR attached to it.

Last Sat. the House sent the Senate that bill, the Senate striped the bill of defunding the ACH language an sent it back the House and Boehner would not allow a clean CR be voted on.

Barney post #25484.
"Hell yes, its the 1/3's fault we were downgraded.
How many times do you have to be told,'spending bills' come from the House?
WHO did not pass a bill on time to avoid a down grade?
That 1/3 called the HOUSE!"
I don't know. How many times DO I have to be told? I guess that depends on if it fits your narrative or not. Today it's "irrelevant", tomorrow it will be of the utmost importance.
As I said, all spending bills have to be voted on and passed by the House, just as it was Last night. The whole package passed last night came out of the Senate. Where it originated is irrelevant.

A continuing resolution is a type of appropriations legislation which may be used by the United States Congress to continue funding government agencies if a formal appropriations bill has not been passed by the end of the government fiscal year. The continuing resolution takes the form of a joint resolution, and may provide bridge funding for existing federal programs at current, reduced, or expanded levels.
Now, Dumb Ass would you care to tell me when the last date the House has passed a budget.
Then proceed to tell me how this Government has been funded since the last budget was passed and now?
Come on keyboard Warrior, tell us how that worked.
"BTW, the debt ceiling is a continuing resolution not a bill."

LMFAO! You answer your own stupid question with your little rant above. You are so stupid you can't even seem to get out of your own way. The debt ceiling is not a CR. They are two different things idiot. They can not exist together dumb ass. That's like saying a Chihuahua and a Pit Bull are the same because both are dogs! What a freaking IDIOT you LIBTARDS are..

Being a democrat is so easy even a Cave Man could do it..

They didn't vote for a default because by law we must pay our creditors first and we have PLENTY enough money to do just that. By definition, a default occurs when we fail to pay our creditors, so, no we would not have defaulted. Cruz was on record as saying that he would not stand in the way of this vote. I guess I took that to mean he would go ahead and vote yes.
America has defaulted before, right after the Civil War. Most countries in the world have defaulted. As a matter of fact I crack up every time I hear the word default. We have a 17 trillion dollar deficit, we DEFAULTED a long time ago!

All you liberals on here need to hop on wnd.com and do some reading. Your president thinks he is smarter than you. Even bragged to the media how he'd won. And a bombshell has been uncovered. Valerie Jarrett Obama's right hand woman come up with the shutdown plan so republicans would be blamed. The republicans played right into Obama's hand. It truly amazes me what Obama gets away with. Is anybody ever going to hold this man responsible for anything. Come on folks this president wants to just keep spending when are ya'll going to say enough. Because when he breaks us it going to be to late. I just pray America will survive the next 3 years. Oh so much pork in the new bill it ain't even funny. The spending has got to stop every one of you here cannot go out and spend whatever you want you have to live within your means. Obama and congress should do the same. This has got to stop, but it won't we will be doing this again dec 15th and feb 7th. Who's at fault Obama in large part. He refuses to negotiate and that's not what a really good president does. Some of you had better wake up before this man destroys this fine country because he's doing a fine job of it. This country will go down the drain just like what obamacare is doing right now.

A bunch of people seeing what their new premiums will be under this monstrosity of a bill is the only hope we have to save our country. Those who thought they wanted Obamacare so they voted for him realizing they have chosen wrong and flipping their vote in 2014 for true conservative candidates is the only hope we have for ridding ourselves of this bill. Conservatives need to win in 2014, Obama needs to stubbornly stick by Obamacare until 2016, and a true conservative president winning in 2016 along with Conservatives keeping control of the House and Senate is what needs to happen. Then and only then can we look to completely rid ourselves of this parasite of a bill and TRULY change the way Washington works.

Tea Party members are more well versed in every aspect of life than non-Tea Party members. The progressive/liberal non-Tea Party members are head and shoulders better at lying than any other demographic though.

Your right Barney, it's all about interpretation as it relates to the point you are trying to make. That post meant what it said when you wrote it and it means something different today because that's what you need it to mean today. It's no wonder the nation is so far down with leaders that think like you. How did we even get here?

All that's true. I just found out in the new debt limit bill there is no actual debt amount so hello sky is the limit this president will go through it like water. I wouldn't be shocked if we hit 18 trillion before feb 7th. You may not have to worry about obamacare because it's falling apart before our eyes because it obvious to me that Obama and all his cronies did not give think this through because we are seeing the results now. Oh and Obama and all democrats voted for this train wreck and their fingerprints are on it so now Americans need to make them own it. Not one republican voted for it.

We just need to hold the country together until the 2014 elections. Our hope is that those who wanted Obamacare have had a gut full of it and are willing to vote all incumbents out and replace them with people that have not gotten hooked on the power that being in government brings.

I said the day Obama was elected that he hated America and he was going to ruin this country. My thoughts have come true. Three more years and he will have his militia riding around in the back of of pickups to control us.
Like in his country. Wake up America.

What happened to Obama's promise of "unity" in the country? I guess he will have to make time to speak about this to bring national awareness to this incident.

This of the two who got beaten could have been his cousin or something like that.

He should take blame but we all know he has a big problem with taking responsibility for his actions. Heck, the media is already blaming Republicans for the low numbers signing up for Obamacare.
