    House Roll Call #48 Details - OpenCongress

    Republican politicians vote against pay as you go. They apparently like deficit spending.

    Right wing sheep - stop believing their lies. They aren't trying to balance the budget. They vote against it.

    They are hypocrites and liars.

    The Republicans were not about to sign onto legislation that would give the Democrats license to hike taxes across the board on everything that is and isn't nailed down in this country. When you have a 'pay as you go' system without spending roll backs and a mega-trillion dollar budget with no savings forecast for years ahead, that would have been a sure prescription to completely crash the economy.

    The title of a bill doesn't always tell even part of the true story, much less all of it.

    We can still hope and pray that we vote out enough irresponsible Democrats and RINOs and vote in enough fiscal conservatives in the next election to give us a fighting chance to recover from the current economic insanity.

    How does raising taxes and crippling the economy stop deficit spending?

    You want to stop deficit spending. Then cut spending.

    And yes, there are some Republicans lie about wanting to stop deficit spending. But Id rather vote for someone who promises to lower the deficit then someone who promises to increase it.

    Yes you did. With aplomb and authority. And I respect that.

    But I still haven't given up hoping that some of these young skulls full of mush will actually get a clue one of these days.

    So bite me.

    There are some sorry excuses for Republicans out there. I love the Republican brand and the things they traditionally stand for; but man, what a sorry bunch they've become.

    What do you think pay as you go is about? It's about cutting spending. The law makes it so congress cannot vote for spending any money unless they can also find a way to pay for it.

    No more deficit spending.

    There's nothing in the bill about raising taxes.

    Why do Republicans feel the need to lie about why their politicians vote no for pay as you go? LOL!!! You throw in raising taxes as if it has anything to do with this.

    Face it. Republican Americans either yawn and don't care, or sling lies about the bill to defend their politicians voting no on ending deficit spending.

    You mean you'd rather vote for someone who promises to lower the deficit but votes no when it comes right down to it.

    You're a liar lover and you'd rather vote for liars.

    Like the Democrats?

    As far as i'm concerned most Liberals in the Senate said they were going to Fix the Economy.. Hence both Parties have Liars, But! The Problem these days both sides have their Nut saying their own party isn't doing anything wrong.

    But I tend to see that more with Liberals than Repubs. Maybe just on this board.. Who knows. :eusa_eh:
