House republicans went home early, for the weekend....Any golf jokes? They were tuckered out, by not submitting ONE BILL dealing with the Sequester, since before the election.....

This article quoted the governor as saying it was no big deal
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/27/chri...

It seems like it was because there was more pork than aid in the Sandy relief bill.

“We felt that the governor’s tone and attitude regarding this relief bill, which was really a pork bill, did not justify an invitation to the conservative conference and we took a pass this year,” Cardenas said.

Cardenas later noted that Christie had been invited to CPAC in the past, but that his record over the past year had left him unqualified for the annual conservative "all-star game."

What would be more concerning would be if CPAC invited someone like Susan Collins to speak.

Doesn't matter whether it is R or D, pork is pork and they both are good at feeding off the public trough. The only difference is that the R's seem to look at the trough as having some boundries whereas the D's feel the people are willing to pay for their "all you can eat" ideas.

Any bill passed by the Senate would have exponentially more pork in it than any house version, and for the President to sign it would have to be almost all pork fat and very little real meat.

So who is blocking progress and blaming others for the lack there of?
It sounds to me as though they want to negotiate about things that are important to them but do not want to add cutting loop holes to the rich. No Negoitiating there and America is going to make them pay next election.

Who's blocking progress and blaming others? Stop with your right wing Hogwash that its Reid and the Democrats. On Inhofe’s proposal it would be members of his own party. His proposal is opposed by Republicans on the defense panel, including Senator John McCain of Arizona and Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire.

McCain, who in January was replaced by Inhofe as the top Republican on the Democratic-controlled Armed Services Committee, said this week that Inhofe’s approach infringes on Congress’s authority to make budget decisions, and comes just two months after Congress approved and President Barack Obama signed a fiscal 2013 defense authorization measure that differs from some of his priorities.

oh? and how so clever one?

My advice is for you to get your big nose out of right wing blogs, faux news and get your news from more balanced sources.

Teabaggers and their filthy fear mongering corporate handlers don't run this country and its time Boehner and McConnell finally admitted it.

Good to see Obama is holding the line. The public is clearly on the side of the President and completely understand how out-of-touch with reality the GOP is on the deficit problem. The Public does fully understand now that the GOP masters and manipulators are the filthy rich, Big Oil and corporations who don't want to see any of their subsidies, public money and tax loopholes closed off.

Sequestration was not Obama's plan. It was the result of a bi-partisan negotiated settlement if Congress could not agree on a different plan for deficit reduction.

This crap you're spewing about it being Obama's idea and plan is more right wing finger pointing and fear mongering to deflect criticism away from the right wing zealots in the House and Senate who are really to blame.

I suggest you read up on the Sequester and how it came about. Try some other sources besides right wing blogs and faux news.

Is that the best you can do hog sauce guy? Is that you're favorite word "Progressives"? As for the poem, there's actually not a shed of truth in it. Its total spin by teabaggers and their corporate puppet masters afraid of losing their subsidies, public money and tax loopholes.

Answer: If you're asking where Obama's proposals are he's provided several. Essentially he's asking that deficit reduction be fair and balanced, that it include both reasonable cuts as well as revenues, and that deficit reduction not rest solely on the backs of the poor and middle class. He's specifically asked that cuts involve discretionary spending, including defense, that SS and medicare be left along and that tax reform include revenue from the rich and closing of tax loopholes that dramatically favor corporations and the wealthy.

As for you question Why should we come up with a solution to his (Obamas) problems? ANSWER: Many of Obama's problems are the result of failed Republican policies that he inherited when he took office. So why shouldn't the Republicans own up to it? Secondly, Obama must look out after everyone's interests not just those that GOP and their wealthy donors hold near and dear.

In the last year, President Obama has twice proposed cuts in our over bloated defense budget.....and twice, he was attacked by the right and fox, for wanting harm for our military......

Congressional records say you are full of crap. We all know that already. I suggest you look at actual facts rather than spewiing left wing lies. We know lies is all you have, because if you had to admit the truth everybody would know what fools you are.

Page 326 (July 26):


At 2:30 p.m.,[White House Budget director Jack] Lew and [White House legislative affairs director Rob] Nabors went to the Senate to meet with [Senator Majority Leader Harry] Reid and his chief of staff, David Krone.

“We have an idea for a trigger,” Lew said.

“What’s the idea,” Reid asked skeptically.

“Sequestration.”

That worthless bastard hasn't offered anything but rhetoric. That is a fact.

Only a moron would think that all of obastards problems are inherited and a bigger moron thinks that the problems he inherited are all results of Republican policies.

I suggest you read things called actual facts. It’s clear you lack the intelligence to form an opinion of your own, maybe you should stop getting your information from Michael moron.

Your thinly clad example that Sequestration is all Obama is not proof of anything except someone's remarks in a meeting. So what if Lew made that remark? How do you know the 'idea for a trigger' that Lew allegedly said was not an idea he got from Boner or one of the other doofuses he answers to? Your comment simply lacks any credibility as proof of anything.

Come back in a week or two after you've scoured the web to find something a little more convincing that your latest last hope.

Regarding Sequestration, The ONLY thing the Obama administration owns is the idea that automatic budget cuts under sequestration particularly in defense (the rights sacred cow) would motivate Congress to act. Congress, namely Boner's HOUSE, called the President's bluff, and lost. The people know this and too bad for them. Now the military will just have to make do now with what they'll get. What they get will be significantly less than they had planned on, but that shouldn't be a big deal for them to cope with since there is so much duplication and waste in that dept. it will be easy to make up. As for the other, I see Boner has already said he will find away to fund Govt operations after March 27 thru a CONTINUING RESOLUTION which has been the mechanism the HOUSE under Boner has used for doing business for over three years now. No new news or surprises there. Yes Obama called it right -- Sequestration was unnecessary and dumb because Congress could have avoided it but chose not to. Guess we'll just have to see how things shake out. I'm pretty sure there will be quite a few REPUBLICANS losing their seats come next election. The people will not forget who to place any blame.

I didn't know direct facts from the congressional record was a thinly clad example. I guess I will have to try and shove my head up my ass and see it from your point of view.
I figured pole smoker wouldn't read any thing else.

“A trigger would lock in our commitment,” Sperling explained.“Even though we disagree on the composition of how to get to the cuts, it would lock us in. The form of the automatic sequester would punish both sides. We’d have to September to avert any sequester”— a legal obligation to make spending cuts.

“Then we could use a medium or big deal to force tax reform,” OBAMA said optimistically.

Jack Lew is the White House budget director and answers to obastard and nobody in congress. So your suggestion that he got this idea from someone outside the WH simply proves your stupidity.
