Senate GOP ponders ceding power to President Obama

There are 89 comments on the www.politico.com story from Feb 27, 2013, titled Senate GOP ponders ceding power to President Obama. In it, www.politico.com reports that:

Days before the March 1 deadline, Senate Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would cancel $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts and instead turn over authority to President Barack Obama to achieve the same level of savings under a plan to be filed by March 8.

The five- page document, which has the tacit support of Senate GOP leaders, represents a remarkable shift for the party. Having railed against Senate Democrats for not passing a budget, Republicans are now proposing that Congress surrender an important piece of its Constitutional “power of the purse” for the last seven months of this fiscal year.

What a copout. Congress(GOP/DEMS) shifting their responsibility to a lame-duck President so they will be unscathed come election time 2014. They should all be voted out.
The sad thing is, it is working, as Obama is already being blamed for not doing Congress' job.
Not so. Most Americans blame the Republican-led House, as well they should.

The proposal would require — like the sequester — that no more than $42.6 billion of the cuts come at the expense of defense programs. But the elaborate, almost Rube Goldberg construct is already provoking sharp criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike and reflects a political scramble to escape the fallout from the sequester.

More than likely.....ain't gonna happen.

GOP must be out of his mind to give Obama freedom to do whatever he wishes to do as Obama will open the border and will flow America with tens of millions of terrorists and criminals from all over the world as Obama rushed to release from US prisons the illegal invader criminals that he was elected to keep in prison according to the constitution. The great Governor Bobby Jindal is right to stand up to the reckless Obama who cannot cut one cent from every dollar of 3600 billion dollars that he spends with no budget, no control no nothing to tell the American people where the money disappears with very little seen in return. Obviously, the GOP senates and Representatives were trusted by the American people to protect America from socialistic dictator and Mozlem brother sympathizer Obama who is out of control and releasing invader criminals from prison similar to the release of Mozlem Brother Terrorists by Obama from Gitmo, from Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt and Libya. Even before cutting one cent from the budget according to the sequester that he signed few months ago, Obama rushed to award the terrorists and criminals in US prisons with freedom to go and create anarchy in America.

I would not say Congress as a whole. We need 2/3rd of a government. The House can go away. They are not needed. The House could be disbanded with final approval of laws being left with the people.
If we got rid of Congress as a whole, we would be no different than all of the other toltilitarian regimes through out history. When power is left into one hand, the people get screwed.
I would say, have the President to execute laws only that are written by the Senate and approved by the people.
Then the people have nobody to blame for bad laws than themselves.
Right now, the people do not have a voice. They think that the House and Senate are their voices. And this is laughable at best. Money interest control the house and senate through bribes (campaign contributions). The people as a whole are kept out of the process.
Why couldn't the state Governors serve as the defacto Senate? Most state legislatures are part-time, and we all know the Congress could easily be part-time as well. Governors are elected by the people of their state, and probably have a better idea what is best for the people of their state. They could do their state business from January - June, and then do federal business from July - December.

They are ALL responsible for it. The House & Senate both passed it with bipartisan support and the President signed it into law.

When are you partisans going to wake up and realize you are making our government non-functional?

Jack Lew and That Man came up with the idea.

That Man signed it into law.

That Man threatened to veto anything that tried to stop it.

Basically threatening to veto his own idea.

Yet, in your world, it's the Republican's fault.

Where did I say it was the GOPasaurs fault?

Again, they ALL hand their hand in the cookie jar.

Though I do appreciate the polling which shows that the GOPasaurs will get the majority of the blame regardless.

So that's nice.....

I agree. It will be far less painful for American to plummet into nothingness by allowing the Orwellians free reign over our lives quickly. Like taking off a bandaid.
Fortunately, for those who share your view, in November parents proved they just to have the emotional attachment to their children that our parents had with us. They were willing to toss their kids "under the bus" for Obama.
And once again.....Much like the House republicans getting the Treasury's credit rating dropped, by holding the country's economy hostage, during the debt ceiling negotiations....REMEMBER THAT?.....And now, when the President has once again trusted them to govern by comprimise, by agreeing to this Sequester....they refuse to work on a comprimise agreement, that might serve both sides....The 2 bills, Boehner keeps harping about were sent up the hill.....PRIOR TO THE F*CKING ELECTION, LAST NOVEMBER......

Irrelevant; the President can't sign a bill without the HOUSE AND SENATE first passing it.

Civics 101.

You're just pissed because all the polls show that the GOPasaurs will get the majority of the blame for the sequester!

Oh horseshit.
That Man should take that Civics 101 class.
The no-good c*cksucker has gone around Congress several times.
Starting with the invasion of Lybia.
Only the Congress has the ablity to declare war, yet That Man went around Congress and invaded anyway.
I'm pissed because That Man isn't getting the blame for it like should.
And it's not irrelavant, because it proves your boy is nothing but a lying flim-flam man.
You're just one of the stupid, who believe anything That Man tells you.
You voted for color of skin, not content of character.
