“Forever Is Promised To No One”

#1 Jan 22, 2013
House Republicans are touting a new plan that calls for temporarily resolving the debt-ceiling standoff and passing a bona-fide budget for the first time in years.
But lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are claiming there’s a problem – they say it’s unconstitutional.
In an effort to break the partisan deadlock, GOP leaders on Friday pitched an ultimatum aimed at the Democrat-controlled Senate. The plan, dubbed “no budget, no pay,” allows the government to get three more months of borrowing authority, with no immediate spending cuts required, in exchange for having to pass a budget within that time. If senators fail to do so, they will be denied their federal paychecks.
“We will authorize a three-month temporary debt limit increase to give the Senate and House time to pass a budget,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said.“Furthermore, if the Senate or House fails to pass a budget in that time, members of Congress will not be paid by the American people for failing to do their job.”

Yes, the American people knew this when they elected the republicans to maintain the pocket book.

Which is a lot of bullchit that says nothing because your losers have nothing.

Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman notifies the Obama administration that he has approved a revised route for the controversial Keystone XL Pipeline, marking a significant step toward reviving the project.

Uh Oh.......Balls in your court Obama..

The First Family ought to be commended for giving up so much to serve their country. Those beautiful little girls haven’t been able to have the typical childhood under the constant watchful eye of so many, but thank God that their father is the President during such trying times… this nation would not have survived the Bush recession/depression had President Obama not been elected in 2008.

With Obama's staged children and children's letters to him I though one was very questionable due to Obama's stance.

It was using one of the letters from a little girl, where Obama said, if we can stop just one of these meaningless deaths, then it will be worth it........The baby in the picture said, "What About Me". It was a fetus that had a heart beat. We know Obama was referring to one shot with a gun. He has a problem separating life it appears.

I disagree. History shows that the democrats, especially Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, caused the mortgage crisis, Dodd even went so far as to filibuster a Bush bill that would have stopped the catastrophe from happening in the first place. Just Google Dodd filibuster. How is it that you know so little of history? Did you know that Obama was part of a legal team that sued Citicorp to give mortgages to people who didn't qualify in Chicago, and that ACORN protested and threatened the bank president on his family's property to force the bank to settle out of court, thus starting the trend of making bad mortgages, That's right. Obama had a hand in the mortgage debacle too. Google Obama sues Citicorp. that was back in 1996, I believe. It's a shame that your obvious strong patriotism is wasted on a bunch of liars and con-artists as Obama and his horde. So much for education in this country where people like you can no longer recognize the truth. That's what an education is supposed to do. You didn't get it. You poor thing. And the sad part is you blame it on the GOP and praise the Democrats for saving the country? Man. We are in trouble with nuts like you around. You are all backward. Oh well.
There's no cure for stupid.

We use science to determine when life begins; when the health of the mother overrides the progression of a fetus, or the life of a baby… your disingenuous words for the life of an unborn child is blunted by your dismissive attitude towards the slaughter of those kids at Sandy Hook or the thousands of other kids that are killed every year in this country at the end of the barrel of a gun. Only people who are sick in the head see the medical procedure of an abortion as a murder instead of a woman’s right to choice what happens with or to her body.

Hillary testifies today. Will she let loose with the truth? Will she lie and deny? Either way, we will all have plenty of books to read and movies to see about Benghazi when she is done. The Biggest lie ever told. It"s like Watergate on Steroids.
Obama will get his wish. He will be immortalized, but not in a way he would wish.
It's gonna gum up all the Februarys I think, from now on. It's history.

What do you want to bet that the Democratic Senate weasel out of this plan too? The Senate like Obama has not passed a budget in years because they know if the American public saw how big their deficit was and how much borrowing the Democrats do to pay for their special interest groups, then they would stoop it!

You know that the Democrats always play on the emotional side to get sympathy for their devilish deeds.
