Self Serving Democrats in Senate Refuse open public debate on Boehner’s Bill and defeat the bill.

Mr. Beohner’s Revised Bill passed the House this afternoon. The Bill added a balanced budget amendment and called for major budget cuts. Contrary to all the rhetoric in the Senate by Democrats, Medicare, Social Security, Veteran Benefits and Services, and Interests on the debt are EXEMPT from cuts. A copy of the bill is shown below with these exemptions highlighted!

Sen. Reid has said he will immediately table the Bill. As Rep. Louie Gohmert says, Senator Reid is refusing to debate the bill. He is refusing to listen to the will of the people.

Well, he didn’t table the bill, he made sure he had enough votes to kill the bill, convened for a vote and killed the bill. The Senate has now recessed for the night and will take up Reid’s bill tomorrow. His bill gives Obama way too much discretion. The debt limit can be increased but true spending cuts are absent.

Reid says the Republican Senators are doing a filibuster to prevent the Senate from voting on Reid’s bill tonight. Boehner says the Senate bill is illegal because it should be done in the House by the Constitution.

Senator Durbin and Senator Reid say they will fight the Republican filibuster. Senator Schumer says Senator McConnell refused to negotiate. Perhaps the Senate leadership ought to let the House do their job and the Senate out to do theirs. Allow debate of House Bills.

Well, I have not heard a single Republican mention anything about a filibuster. The Democratic leadership say that this is all a Republican manufactured crisis. They say if Republican House will submit a specific bill, they could work on it.  What a lie! Two bills came to the Senate and twice it was rejected without even being read.

One last Point, the Democrats on Congress kept saying the Pell Grant was being cut by the House. That is not true. The bill increased the Pell Grant. However, Obama has done something thru regulation that has affected the Pell Grant several weeks ago. My son did not get his Pell grant for his third year, first semester though he meets requirements. He did get paperwork for $10,000. in student loans, pre-approved. How generous but no thanks.

Both he and my daughter, who is now graduated, are/were in degree programs for their Bachelors. my daughter and son both worked. their income was included on the Pell grant forms. She graduated with no debt. So far my son has no debt. The benevolent government now wants him to incur debt. Could it be to force him to work it off for the feds? Won’t happen!

The President has been absent from the proceedings. Today, he met with a brutal killer in the White House who over threw the duly elected leader in an African nation. That killer is accused by world organizations killing and torturing his own dissenting county men and women.

Rep. Louie Gohmert also suggested a flat tax across the board. I agree. Most people wouldn’t go to Thomas so they do not know that the Democrats in the Senate are lying about SS, Medicare, and Va checks to frighten people.
