“H.R. 1954: To implement the President’s request to increase the statutory limit on the public debt” failed to pass

Posted by devildog6771 on June 1, 2011

It appears that some common sense has prevailed! The House Vote on “H.R. 1954: To implement the President’s request to increase the statutory limit on the public debt” failed to pass. One more hurdle has been passed. Below are the totals. i also included (only) the names of those House Members who voted “to” increase our National Debt Limit.

It is too soon to determine if Congress still has their head in the wrong place, Time will tell!

Now it is time for the Tea Party members to do their job. Spread the word! Educate the public! If any of those who voted for this bill are up for re-election, maybe it’s time for them to be replaced!

  1. I agree with you. It has turned into a circus. Take a look at today’s unemployment report!

  2. Freedom, by the way said

    It was all for show, unfortunately. Now, when they vote to raise the debt limit (at the 11th hour and we’ll all be privey to video of how “hard” they are working to cut the budget, save entitlements) they can say, “well, I voted no on it at first.” GRRRR. Put 12 folks with common sense in the room and we can get ‘er done–get rid of the Dept. of Education, neuter the EPA, overhaul food stamps, start drilling offshore & inland (new tax dollars in the system). I could go on, but that’s enough for 2 minutes. In 2 months, congress won’t make THAT much progress.
