House Passes Senate Bill Without Amendments

President Obama Laughs with Aides on Air Force One

It is now off for the Bronco Bama seal of approval.

At least 85 Republicans voted for it and 178 voted against it. Only 16 Democrats voted against it.

Off it goes. One dollar of cuts for every $41 in tax increases. That’s what Obama calls a “balanced approach.”

Tonight Democrats and Republicans worked together to approve suicidal spending while increasing taxes that will result in trivial amounts of new revenue, all in the name of class warfare.

Drudge calls it all out…

    Just makes ya sick, don’t it?
    I’ve been listening on the radio all evening.

    It’s not like we didn’t all know that they’d never make any meaningful cuts to spending. Not a surprise.

    The American people chose free candy on Nov 6th. This is just the logical extension of that decision.

  3. R.D. Walker says:

    Americans don’t want cuts and will destroy the career of any politician who tries to push them through. We can get all pissed at Washington but this country has the government it wants and damned well deserves.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      Knowing we are getting what we deserve, however, will be faint succor during the Burning Times.

  4. R.D. Walker says:

    I don’t really get the anger at Republicans. It isn’t like they had a choice in the matter. As I said over and over, the GOP had only two choices: Tax increases on the wealthy or tax increases on everyone including the wealthy. They did what they had to do and got a few concessions out of the Democrats. They couldn’t have done much better.

    The shit you saw tonight was decided on November 6th. It was that night this hand was drawn and there is no use getting pissed at politicians for doing what the people told them to do.

    Now, it will take some restraint on my part to not beat the living shit out of anyone who voted for Obama and complains when the fucking house inevitably burns down.

    • Ray Davies says:

      RD, I could not have said it better. Especially when they are touting things like FREE health care. My daughter is one of the ones in danger. Is she going to be suprised when she asks to borrow $ and I tell her I ain’t got it

    Don’t hold back. They don’t deserve ANY compassion.

    Whats going to be really interesting is how they’re going to spin the coming fiscal disaster and the fact that nothing is going to improve.. The Republicans caved and gave them near everything they wanted.

  7. James says:

    The fiscal problem is officially unrecoverable.

  8. James says:

    “They’re crazy, but they’re not that batshit crazy,” Democratic Representative Alcee Hastings told reporters as the Republican plan came into focus.

    Umm, democrats think cutting spending is crazy.
    I think an insane asylum’s gates were opened, and the inmates replaced congress.

  9. R.D. Walker says:

    For more than ten years Democrats have been telling Americans that the Bush tax cuts are responsible for the deficit and are a disaster. They just voted to make 98% of them permanent and increase spending to boot.

    Washington is a joke.

  10. R.D. Walker says:


    It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a “dictatorship” in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal.

    “Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

    Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?”

    Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.”

  11. James says:

    “Go f— yourself,”

    YES! YES!
    Boehner is getting it!
    Now Republicans need to not budge the debt ceiling.
