Senate Scraps Only Debt Ceiling Bill; Still No Democratic Plan

Facing a public that strongly supports the House-passed Cut, Cap and Balance bill to address the debt ceiling, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has proved once again how brilliant liberalism is.  The Senate was supposed to vote on the only potential deficit bill this Saturday, but dingy Harry Reid said, without explanation, that the Senate would formally reject the bill, leaving zero options on the table.  Reid called Cut, Cap and Balance "weak and senseless" and "perhaps some of the worst legislation in the history of this country."  He made that statement without offering a solution.  Realistically, the issue comes down to class warfare and how Democrats are intransinent when it comes to taxing the wealthy.

"I think this piece of legislation is about as weak and senseless as anything that has ever come on this Senate floor, and I'm not going to waste the Senate's time day after day on this piece of legislation which I think is anathema to what our country is all about.  I feel confident that this legislation will be disposed of one way or the other.  The American people should understand that this is a bad piece of legislation, perhaps some of the worst legislation in the history of this country."

The walking disorder failed to explain what makes Cut, Cap and Balance the worst in America's history, other than the assumption that he refuses to accept any proposition that came from Republicans.  The broader reason is because with a capped debt ceiling it will be nearly impossible to fund all of the massive social programs that liberals demand.  It needs to be noted what the Senate will be doing by not wasting time on the bill:  they'll be doing nothing.

Democrats also oppose the bill because it doesn't tax the rich, even though it will put America on the proper path to mopping up Obama's spending diarrhea.  Beyond that, re-election is equally important, so demonization plays a key role in gearing up for the 2012 election.  They're more concerned about pointing fingers than saving America, which is why the Democrats or the White House haven't offered any sort of plan to address the debt ceiling.  The Gang of Six Schmucks concept doesn't count because it's not even a bill, but rather bullet points on a piece of paper.

The rumor now is that Senate and Congressional leaders are working with the White House to put together a package that cuts $3 trillion over 10 years and with tax increases, likely totaling around $1 trillion, which is unacceptable for the Tea Party.  It's likely that GOP leaders will cave because they're weak and work to get Republican support.  Additionally, the liberal media is working overtime to place blame on the Tea Party for being opposed to tax increases.  The issue should be focused on the miscreant Democrats and their obsession with raising taxes and killing jobs.  Enough with the class warfare; that doesn't solve the problem.


Let's face it, the Democrats have no plan; however, this is what they want.  Their plan is to demonize the GOP and take advantage of the crisis.  With weak GOP leadership, expect the Republicans to modify a package that will include tax increases.  Boehner and McConnell will do it not because of pressure from their caucuses, but because they want to be liked.  The GOP has the upper hand; they have a bill that passed the House and fixes the problem and should be standing firm.  Let President Obama threaten a veto, hell, let him veto it!  Americans overwhelmingly want the budget capped and that's what matters.  It doesn't matter what the walking disorder Harry Reid or the degenerate Chuck Schumer have to say because liberalism comes first to them, not the country.

The GOP is holding a meeting tomorrow morning and we expect more details to emerge, especially with it being the weekend and not as many people paying attention.
