The GOP and the Democrats
are going to vote voted Friday for a $1.1 trillion dollar spending bill that no one had time to read, adds to our deficit, meets none of the conservatives’ demands, and props up Obamacare. The GOP do not have the votes to buck the Democrats but many want them to use the power of the purse and if the government is shut down, it’s Barack Obama doing it.
Planned Parenthood is funded, refugees from terror nations are funded, but GOP donors got a few things. It looks like Obama’s climate change will be funded also. Oh but we get to sell oil like the Arabs and Russians. They traded everything for this big oil deal and it will be used against them during the campaign.
Democrats are boasting of having rejected 150 GOP proposals.
The Gosar Amendment was knocked out which means Obama can move ahead with his robbing local governments of control over zoning. That’s the amendment that previously stopped Barack Obama’s social engineering of every neighborhood in this country via HUD.
Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino is heavily involved in fighting HUD on this and Rep. Gosar has been helping him by offering amendments to appropriations bills to defund it.
The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing is not a bill but a HUD program to force targeted communities (like Westchester) to meet government mandated diversity quotas. It’s all based on spurious ‘disparate impact’ data so, for example, HUD makes a finding that Chappaqua or Scarsdale or Brookhaven or your town isn’t diverse enough and is too affluent so sues them to change their zoning regulations and force more low income housing into the community.
The spending bill increases monies for Section 8 housing. This administration has done a bang up job of increasing the need for free housing.
This will go on in every community in this country. Click the link below for more information.
The Democrats put out a document listing all they got out of this bill and anyone to the right of the socialists in office won’t like it.
The spending bill includes the GOP proposal to lift a four-decades-old ban on exporting U.S. crude oil. It also includes increases in domestic and defense spending. And it increases the federal deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars by extending numerous, popular tax credits without paying for them.
The GOP attempts to insert language into the bill to impose tougher controls on Syrian and Iraqi refugees were unsuccessful.
The final package also is expected to allow for the delay of three ObamaCare taxes — the medical device tax, the so-called “Cadillac tax” and health insurance tax — congressional sources told Fox News. That’s a real advantage for Obama. It props up Obamacare and hides the effects of its worst taxes.
Another benefit for Obama is the levy imposed on health insurers that typically is passed onto customers in the form of higher premiums. That will be suspended for a year.
Some tax breaks are continued.
The final package ignores conservative demands for language clamping down on Syrian refugees entering the U.S.
Instead, it contains changes tightening up the “visa waiver” program that allows visa-free travel to the U.S. for citizens of 38 countries, including France and Belgium, where many of last month’s Paris attackers were from.
The GOP can’t understand why the non-establishment candidates are in the lead – this is why.
The Establishment will be fine with Hillary winning if one of their establishment candidates can’t, because it will be business as usual.
The American people no longer have a say in their government. This is tyranny. Our government is run by a handful of self-serving elites in both parties.
Rush Limbaugh voiced his disapproval.
“Who runs this place? Who has the majority of seats in this place? Ditto over in the Senate. What is this? Why does the clock always run out on an end-the-of-the-year budget deal when everybody knows months in advance the end of the year budget deal is coming up? How in the world does any of this happen? Maybe that’s a rhetorical question because this is what the Republicans wanted the end result to be.
The proof of that is the excuses they’re offering. They don’t have the temerity to say, ‘Hey we love this. This is what we want. This is great for the country.
We have bipartisan agreement here.’ I mean, why aren’t they doing that? So if you look carefully, they’re doing exactly what they claim they have to do in order to win the presidency.
You couple this with everything else we know – such as Jeb Bush starting out his primary campaign by saying he intended to win the nomination without the base – it was going to be a marvel of American politics – first ever candidate to win his party’s nomination without the support of his party’s base.
They don’t want it. Perfectly clear what is happening here. And of course when they’re called on it, naturally those of us who criticize it are going to be pointed to as the problem.
Why is the only Republican in all of Congress who is complaining about this Sen. Jeff Sessions? Well, yeah – Cruz is, Rubio did somewhat. Jeff Sessions is really the only guy standing up and complaining about it, warning before it happened, trying to alert people what’s on the verge of happening. Is Sessions the only conservative left in Congress? What happened to all those that were elected in 2010, 2014? I mean they’re there but clearly the leadership is running the show here.”
