Rep. Pat Meehan (R-Pa)
Rep. Scott Rigell (R-Va.)
Rep. Peter King (R- N.Y.)
Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa)

‘By my count, that makes 22 house Republicans who have publicly stated that they would vote for a clean CR, which would end the government shut down’.

 

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Sunday that there are not enough votes in the House of Representative to pass a continuing resolution to fund the government without a provision defunding or delaying the Affordable Care Act.

 

“There are not votes in the House to pass a clean CR,” Boehner said in an interview with ABC’s “This Week.”

Contrary to Boehner’s claim, several House Republicans have signaled willingness to pass a bill to fund the government with no strings attached to Obamacare’s funding and implementation.

 

Speaker Boehner is a liar.

From The Huffington Post:

As of Wednesday afternoon, the number of those Republicans hit 21 — surpassing the magic 17 votes needed to pass a clean funding bill if all 200 Democrats stick together and team up with them. Of course, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would have to be willing to put that bill on the floor in the first place. But if he did, the votes appear to be there for passage, at which point the bill would sail through the Senate and be signed by President Barack Obama, ending the shutdown.

 

The number is now 22 as of Monday the 7th Of October.

 

GOP came to power seeking government shut down

 

Published on Sep 30, 2013

Government shut down will hurt the veterans and construction workers who have Government contracts. Bottom line…the Republicans don’t care. They came into office with one thing on their agenda…Government Shut Down.

 

 

 

What is a CR:

 

continuing resolution is a type of appropriations legislation used by the United States Congress to fund government agencies if a formal appropriations bill has not been signed into law by the end of the Congressional fiscal year. The legislation takes the form of a joint resolution, and provides funding for existing federal programs at current, reduced, or expanded levels.

 

Federal budget procedure

The federal government of the United States operates on a budget calendar that runs from October 1 through September 30. Each year, the Congress authorizes each department, agency, or program to spend a specific amount of money. This money may not be spent, however, until it has been appropriated for a given purpose. The Department of Justice, for example, is authorized to spend $22.2 billion each year, but may not do so until Congress passes a law that says so. 

 

Under the Constitution, only Congress may appropriate money for the operation of the federal government. Therefore, Congress is required to pass separate spending bills every year to fund the operation of government. If no such bill becomes law, government functions cease immediately and all functions of the government cease eventually, as required by the Antideficiency Act, except as excepted by the Act. In order to prevent the interruption of government services, Congress and the President will often pass a continuing resolution. This authorizes government agencies to fund their agencies at the current level until either the resolution expires, or an appropriations bill is passed. Like all acts of Congress, a continuing resolution must be passed by both houses of Congress and the President, or passed with a majority large enough to override a Presidential veto.

 

Advantages and disadvantages

Standoffs between the President and Congress or between political parties, elections, and more urgent legislative matters complicate the budget process, frequently making the continuing resolution a common occurrence in American government. They allow the government to take its time making difficult fiscal decisions.

 

Federal agencies are disrupted by the periods of reduced funding. With non-essential operations suspended, many agencies are forced to interrupt research projects, training programs, or other important functions. Its impact on day-to-day management can be severe, costing some employees the equivalent of several months’ time.

 

History

The most significant incident involving continuing resolutions occurred in 1995, when a standoff between then Democratic President Bill Clinton and Congressional Republicans led to the shutdown of the federal government. Without enough votes to override President Clinton’s vetoNewt Gingrich led the Republicans not to submit a revised budget, allowing the previously-approved appropriations to expire on schedule. The resulting lack of appropriations led to the shutdown of non-essential functions of the federal government for 28 days due to lack of funds.

Hopefully this will help you understand what is going on…..and if you need further help with the truth of this government shutdown…….

 

Tell The Truth America: This Government Shutdown Is ALL About R.A.C.E.

 

This government shutdown is racist and not very shy about it either.

 

Let me break it down for you who don’t know. Racist ass caucasians, and the hand full of house niggers who follow behind, sucking their nasty sweaty balls, do not want Barack Hussein Obama to be a success because he is Black. ObamaCARES is something that will put Barack Hussein Obama in the history books for much more than being the first Black human to be elected President Of The United States.

 

The Affordable Health Care Act elevates Barack Hussein Obama into the history books with The Presidents who implemented Social SecurityMedicareMedicaid, The G.I. Bill. It secures a legacy no other caucasian POTUS has had since those great men who started the above mentioned social services.

 

Can you imagine an America without Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, SNAP, Veterans Benefits? In 30 years, Barack Hussein Obama will be known as the Father Of American Health Care. Now what racist ass cracka caucasian wants THAT?

 

Think it any coincidence the U.S. Government was shut down by racist caucasian slaves of the Koch Brothers and Grover Norquist on the VERY SAME DAY ObamaCARES opens it’s enrollment?

 

What has been the headlines today, Government Shutdown or ObamaCARES Open Enrollment?

 

ObamaCARES…now that is something they just couldn’t allow to succeed.

They could NOT allow The Affordable Health Care Act to be a success. I mean how can some Harvard educated Black dude be mentioned in the same breath as  President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Social Security Act of 1935. They could not possibly “let” a Negro be thought of in the same way we think of President Lyndon B. Johnson and Medicare…heaven forbid!!

 

SO, the TeaTardedRepubliCANTS devised a plan to make Barack Hussein Obama the shame of the 44 Presidents. Make his signature legislation, legislation that saves lives and insures millions of Americans for the very FIRST time in their lives, The Affordable Health Care Act aka ObamaCARES, the single reason for shutting down theUnited States Government.

 

It’s ALL about race and ObamaCARES. P.E.R.I O.D.

 

And they were able to accomplish all this carnage for middle class federal employees and their families, middle class business owners, middle class workers, the poor, the elderly, American military personnel, children and expectant mothers, ONLY  because you middle class voters sat on your lazy asses on Tuesday, November 2, 2010.

 

Grover Norquist and The Koch Brothers thank you.

 

What YOU going to do on “NO”vember 4th, 2014.

 

I do not want to live in a nation that is as stupidly racist as The United States Of AmeriKKKa.

 

Rand Paul & Mitch McConnell caught on hot mic talking shutdown strategy

 

Published on Oct 3, 2013

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) were caught on a hot mic Wednesday night while discussing their party’s messaging on the government shutdown.

 

Paul ran into McConnell, who was wired for an interview, in front of a camera after wrapping his own interview with CNN, according to Western Kentucky news station WPSD.

 

“I just did CNN and I just go over and over again ‘We’re willing to compromise, we’re willing to negotiate.’ I think — I don’t think they poll tested ‘we won’t negotiate.’ I think it’s awful for them to say that over and over again,” Paul said of the Obama administration’s stance on the shutdown.

“Yeah, I do too, and I just came back from that two hour meeting with them, and that was basically the same view privately as it was publicly,” McConnell said.

 

President Barack Obama met with congressional leaders Wednesday night to discuss opening the federal government and raising the debt ceiling, but the meeting brought the two sides no closer to ending the budget impasse.

 

In the video recording, Paul was confident that the GOP’s pivot from demanding Obamacare be defunded to seeking out compromise would succeed.

 

“I think if we keep saying ‘We wanted to defund it. We fought for that but now we’re willing to compromise on this,’ I think they can’t — we’re gonna, I think — well I know we don’t want to be here, but we’re gonna win this I think,” he said.

 

 

 

Shutdown Hits Federal Workers

 

 

 

I see every news talk political joke of a TV show go around saying everything but what is the obvious truth….every past POTUS, thats 43 of ‘em, have gotten what was needed to keep this government financially solvent….except one.

 

Barack Hussein Obama.

 

The Black President of The United States Of AmeriKKKa.
