Paul Ryan budget gives Harry Reid authority to raise taxes with simple majority vote – voids point of order rule
The Paul Ryan budget deal that he cut with far left progressive liberal Democrats allows Harry Reid and the Senate to raise taxes with a simply majority vote (51 votes.) The provision voids the ‘point of order’ rule. Basically, Harry Reid and the Democrats can raise taxes whenever they choose. It’s like the nuclear option on judicial nominations, except this time it’s on taxes and a gift from Paul Ryan and the RINO caucus in the House. Man was I fooled by Paul Ryan. Turns out Mitt Romney is more of a conservative than the Wisconsin RINO fraud Paul Ryan.
Senate Republicans scrubbing the Ryan-Murray budget deal have come across a little-noticed provision that will limit the GOP’s ability to block tax increases in future years.
The bill includes language from the Senate Democrats’ budget that voids senators’ ability to raise a budget “point of order” against replacing the sequester cuts with tax increases.
The process is quite complicated, but in practice it grants Harry Reid the authority to send tax increases to the House with a bare majority, rather than the 60-vote threshold that would be required under a point of order.
Enough is enough of this mentally unstable drunk. Weeper Boehner has to go. The GOP will probably keep control of the House in 2014, especially with the ObamaCARE debacle. They had better not re-elect Boehner as Speaker. Weeper Boehner, like the rest of the RINO scum only fight conservatives. They always cave to the far left progressive liberal extremists and never battle them. If Boehner and the rest of the filthy RINOs fought the left with half as much gusto as they do conservatives, maybe things in this couldn’t wouldn’t be as bad as they are. It’s almost gotten to the point where I don’t care if Democrats win anymore. Nancy Pelosi has more balls than Boehner, and was a far better Speaker than the mentally unstable drunk. She wasn’t a good Speaker for the country, she was a good Speaker for the far left progressives. She never once ‘compromised’ with the Republicans while she was in charge. She got what she and the Democrats wanted like ObamaCARE. Pelosi has more testosterone than Boehner. Weeper Boener calling ctitics of this cave budget deal ridiculous is ironic from someone who can’t even control his emotions during a CBS interview.
Conservative Texas Rep. Steve Stockman with launch a primary campaign against Texas RINO Senator John Cornyn who is up for re-election next year. After all of John Cornyn’s backstabbing of Ted Cruz during the Obama shutdown, it looks like karma has finally caught up with the RINO.
One of Washington’s most reliably conservative lawmakers is breaking the news that he will challenge a mainstay of the Republican establishment – all because the incumbent GOP senator “undermined Sen. Ted Cruz’s fight to stop Obamacare.”
Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, told WND exclusively that he will run against against Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, in the state’s primary race. Cornyn is running for re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2014.
With his campaign little more than an hour old, Stockman had already picked up some major support.
Jenny Beth Martin, president and co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, told WND, “Congressman Stockman has proven himself to be a fighter for freedom who votes in the House of Representatives based on constitutional principles. We need more senators who will do the same.”
Obama really loves them Mullahs in Iran. Reports now (from the Weekly Standard) and some Arab newspaper have Obama working (undoubtedly with Iranian born Valerie Jarrett) to arrange a trip to Iran. Valerie Jarrett must be missing her homeland. The corrupt Obama White House is trying to deny that this trip to Tehran is ever going to happen. But as we’ve learned time and time again, nothing that comes from Obama or his White House hacks ever is true. Obama and Jarrett will probably make sure the trip to Iran is after the 2014 mid-term elections.
Poor RINO Mitch McConnell he’s mad at the tea party and conservatives. He’s in for a tough primary battle against Matt Bevin, and tough re-election against a weak Democrat if he beats Bevin in the deep red state of Kentucky next year. Now poor turtle McConnell is whining that it’s time for the GOP Establishment aka RINOs to stand up to those bad ole Tea Party/Conservative bullies.
|Mitch McConnell: Time for GOP Establishment (RINOs) to ‘Stand Up to’ Tea Party|
McConnell argued it is “utter nonsense” for groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), which has endorsed his primary challenger businessman Matt Bevin, to argue that Republicans like him in Congress are not fighting hard enough to defeat Democrats. In the interview, McConnell focused on deriding Tea Partiers for leading the effort to defund Obamacare—something that, coupled with the Democrats’ refusal to compromise on the soon-to-fail Obamacare, resulted in a government shutdown.
“The Senate Conservatives Fund is giving conservatism a bad name,” McConnell told the Examiner for the piece titled “The Establishment Fights Back: Mitch McConnell leads GOP battle against Tea Party insurgents.”
“They’re [SCF] participating in ruining the [Republican] brand,” McConnell said. “What they do is mislead their donors into believing the reason that we can’t get as good an outcome as we’d like to get is not because of a Democratic Senate and a Democratic president, but because Republicans are insufficiently committed to the cause—which is utter nonsense.”
New Hampshire radical leftist progressive liberal Democrat Peter Sullivan goes by the nick @CitizenSullivan. He decided to show his progressive sexist side by comparing New Hampshire conservative Marilina Garcia who announced her candidacy for the New Hampshire Congressional District 2 seat.

‘Citizen Peter Sullivan’ compared Garcia to Kim Kardashian and Al Baldasarro in stiletto heels. As is typical for coward Democrats like Peter Sullivan, he quickly deleted his tweets once he got blowback on his remarks and ‘protected’ his account status so only approved users can read his time line. Twitchy captured Citizen Sullivan’s tweets before he deleted them:

|Sexist New Hampshire Democrat Peter Sullivan compares Marilina Garcia to Kim Kardashian|
Peter Sullivan’s twitter picture is rather ironic. It shows him next to a woman with ‘NO N8′ painted on his cheek (face, probably ass too.) He also looks a lot like Karl Rove.
Marilina Garcia hasn’t commented yet (at least on Twitter) about Citizen Sullivan’s misogyny.
|Leftists throw tantrum over Mary Landrieu Mussolini picture|
The Hayride blog on Louisiana politics featured an entry — under the headline, “Mary Voted To Kill The Filibuster Today…” — about Landrieu’s vote with fellow Democrats to invoke the so-called nuclear option, which changed Senate rules to prevent filibusters against most presidential nominations. The photo, which was uploaded to the site with the filename “MussoLandrieu,” accompanied the story.
‘So called nuclear option.’ Heh.
Apparently, this a travesty to leftists. Need I remind any of these same hypocrites about the crap leftists tweet about Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Condi Rice, or basically any female conservative?
Speaking of leftist hypocrites, how about New York Times Op-ed columnist Frank Bruni. It was just last year when Bruni picked on on Bristol Palin and called her a ‘bad mother.’ Today? Frank Bruni is like LEAVE Mary Landrieu Mussolini alone!!!!!!!

One of the filthy hypocritical Democrats to vote on the nuclear option today was Louisiana porker Mary Landrieu. Funny thing about this extremist progressive liberal Democrat, is that Mary Landrieu was really against the so called ‘nuclear option’ for judicial nominees back in 2005 when Republicans held the majority in the Senate. Here’s a statement still on her website from 2005:
|Mary Landrieu – against the nuclear option before she was for it|
Democrat Carl Levin is retiring and his Senate seat is open in 2014. Conventional wisdom would have this seat going to a Democrat since Michigan is so infested with the progressive liberal Democrat parasites. But thanks to ObamaCARE, the open Senate seat in Michigan for 2014′s mid-term election is now longer considered ‘safe’ for Marxist Democrats.
Count ‘em. At least 27 Democrat Senators flat out promised that if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. Period. Most of them of up for re-election in 2014.

SEN. TOM HARKIN (D-Iowa): “One of the things we put in the health care bill when we designed it was the protection for consumers to keep the plan they have if they like it; thus, the term ‘grandfathered plans.’ If you have a plan you like — existing policies — you can keep them. … we said, if you like a plan, you get to keep it, and you can grandfather it in.” (Sen.

SEN. BARBARA BOXER (D-Calif.): “So we want people to be able to keep the health care they have. And the answer to that is choice of plans.

JEFF MERKLEY (D-Oreg.): “[E]nsuring that those who like their insurance get to keep it” “The HELP Committee bill sets forward a historic plan that will, for the first time in American history, give every American access to affordable health coverage, reduce costs, and increase choice, while ensuring that those who like their insurance get to keep it.” (Sen.

Shaheen, “Health Care Questions From Across New Hampshire,” Accessed 11/13/13)
SEN. DEBBIE STABENOW (D-Mich.): “As someone who has a large number of large employers in my state, one of the things I appreciate about the chairman’s mark is — is the grandfathering provisions, the fact that the people in my state, 60 percent of whom have insurance, are going to be able to keep it. And Mr. Chairman, I appreciate that. That’s a strong commitment. It’s clear in the bill … I appreciate the strong commitment on your part and the president to make sure that if you have your insurance you can keep it. That’s the bottom line for me.” (U.S. Senate, Finance Committee, Bill Mark-Up, 9/24/09)

Louisiana’s own Miss Piggy Mary Landrieu back in 2009 said that she will take 100% full responsibility for the outcome Obamacare. Now we are in 2013 and Landrieu can’t run (or waddle) fast enough away from it.
|Mary Landrieu 2009 – I take 100% responsibility for Obamacare|
I’m hoping the people of Louisiana are smart enough and kick out Landrieu in a landslide election. She not only brings the pork barrel projects to the state, she brings her porky ass to the state too.
These crazy progressive liberal Democrats have really lost their mind. Earlier, it was the New York Times comparing ObamaCARE’s problems to Katrina. Now, we have Seattle loony Democrat Rep. comparing the chaos and panic on the House floor during the Upton Bill vote to 9/11.
