    His parting shot's gonna make you hide your wallets.



    The House budget proposal is so good, Senate Republicans are already balking at the idea of passing it.

    Budget & gun control legislation not goin' anywhere...

    Major disagreements hobble Congress budget talks
    Thu Dec 10, 2015 - The U.S. Congress is nowhere near reaching a deal on government funding, a senior lawmaker said on Thursday, as Republicans who control both chambers struggled to meet conservative demands and show they can avoid agency shutdowns.

    Tue Dec 15, 2015 - Congressional negotiators on Tuesday wrapped up a sprawling deal to keep the U.S. government operating through next September, while setting new policies ranging from repealing a 40-year-old ban on oil exports to making many business tax breaks permanent, according to Republican lawmakers.

    Trillions More of YOUR Dollars



    The big bill that'll be voted on tonight is the usual Washington deal-making boondoggle with lots and lots of tax money going to all sorts of places. Just think, these are the characters involved in putting it together:

    Speaker John Boehner. Huh? Isn't he gone already?

    Speaker Paul Ryan
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel
    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid

    With this cast, what can possible go wrong?

    Read all the lurid details @ Here's What's in Congress' Spending and Tax Package

    Lawmakers Won’t Have Much Time to Read Spending Bill Topping 2,000 Pages @ Lawmakers Won’t Have Long to Read Huge Spending Bill Is this another, “You have to pass it to know what's in it?”

    I'll give Ryan credit as he cares about infrastructure, science, r&d and education!!! Very important in keeping America strong and moving foward.

    Thank you Speaker for doing your job!!! Would be nice if you cut the tax breaks out and closed some loopholes.

    Well now, most didn't have to worry about that with the last GOP President. With his parting shot, most people's wallets were empty.

    800 billion in tax cuts with no offsets.

    Is that the vaunted Republican accountability they talk so much about.

    And all that worrying about the ballooning deficit under Obama. Then the Republicans make it worse. Again.

    WTF is wrong with Republicans?
    Lying hypocrits is the answer.

    Judiciary Chair: Spending Deal Makes No Change to Visa Program That 'Poses Significant National Security Risks'
    December 17, 2015 | An ongoing visa program that allows foreigners who invest in U.S. businesses to obtain a green card and a pathway to citizenship is “plagued by fraud and abuse” and “poses significant national security risks,” yet it was unchanged and fully funded in the omnibus appropriations bill, said Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) today.

    you get to september 23rd and people say, ‘oh crap! an annual appropriations process needs to be done annually. well we better manufacture a false choice between funding the government at 102% of last year’s level, or 0%.’ then the choice is almost always in late september. let’s do everything we did last year and then just grow government a little bit with no accountability or you’re supposedly for a shut down. when it comes to the budget, members of congress “are willing to nibble around tiny margins instead of taking responsibility for whether or not we’re bankrupting our kids.

    Sadly, the "budget deal" was in the works for months. It was already screwed up before Ryan got to it. He did his best with what he had and got a few things included the RINOs really didn't want.

    He's already indicated there will be some rule changes in the next session to try to open up and fix this crap.

    Time will tell.
