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!
Comments to think about.
