Now that Obama has stood his ground and exposed the racists, Neo-Nazis, The Confederates, anti-intellectuals, and simpletons (otherwise known as the GOP) for what they are in the debt debacle, orchestrated by the clown and master fraud, Ted Cruz, he must realize that his next battle has begun. No, I am not talking about immigration reform that is dead in the Neo-Nazi House. If the House was interested in passing immigration reform, it would have done so months ago just by bringing the Senate bill to the floor with all of its wasteful spending on border security, etc.
No, Obama's battle will be about money the only thing that the buffoons in the house understand, especially, if it is going into their pockets or their benefactors' pockets, The newly formed budget committee composed of equal numbers of Demos and Repubs plus some token Repub women is tasked with resolving the country's budget impasse and raising the debt ceiling. This committee is suppose to develop a compromise between the ridiculous Ryan budget and the Senate budget passes months ago. That is like asking a man stuck in the desert to choose between drinking water or biting a cactus.
Obama should lay on the table the following conditions for the committee to approve:
1. End the Sequestor
2. Pass the American Jobs Act
3. End the Oil Depletion Allowance
4. Pass the Infrastructure Bill to fix America's failing infrastructure
5. Pass a farm bill that ends farm subsidies to corporate farmers and boost the SNAP program.
If the committee does not agree to these items, then don't sign anything they agree to. If it results in another government shutdown then so be it. The five items listed above will do more to reduce joblessness and the deficit than anything the Ryan clowns could every do to help the country. But in the end, we all know that the Repubs don't really give a damn about the country!
The cowards in the Neo-Confederacy Party (GOP) are slinking about the Capitol hinting that they may sign a Democratic discharge petition to bring a clean Continuing Resolution (CR) to the floor which would allow the federal government to reopen. Really, does anyone believe that the same cowards who voted for the closure during an open floor vote where they could have stopped the closure, alone with Democratic votes, will somehow have the nerve to sign a petition. Does anyone believe that they cowards, who hide from the mediocre main stream, media actually have the courage to sign a petition when their only function is to raise funds to run for the election.
These cowards, elected by low-information voters ( a nice way for saying stupid people) in virtually all white districts, even know the consequences of their votes. How many of these clowns do you think actually read the 2000 page ACA and have a reasonable idea of what is in the law. Even if they have read it and support many parts of it they lack the balls to speak out in a mature way to improve it because they are cowards. They don't understand governing, lack any form of statesmanship, and are only there for the potential wealth they can obtain by selling out their voters.
These are the people who are elected to represent and govern in America. Elected people who feed off the ignorance, racism, and sheer stupidity of the so-called average American. Pathetic!
Alright GOPers, rejoice you have shutdown the government to stop Obamacare which by the way started enrollment today. You have done to America what all the Muslim terrorists could not do for the second time since 1995. You have taken a bankrupt, erroneous ideology, masquerading your racism, to throw almost one million people out of work and closing essential government services. Congratulations!
With your cowardly leader, John Boehner, who chose to cave to a cadre of fools, otherwise known as the Tea Party, to save his job and become the poster child for ineptitude in contemporary America. Boehner, a man who abrogated his duty to America has demonstrated to the world that American Exceptionalism is a buzzword for cowardice, racism, and corruption. His gutless leadership clearly defines the failure of the GOP over the last 70 years. A party of deficit spending, war-mongering, discriminatory policies, and elitism is a complete failure when measured against what the Founding Fathers proscribed over 200 years ago.
In conclusion, the GOP is disgusting!
