Why One Congressman Voted “NO” On The Massive, Wasteful Omnibus Bill

 – Why One Congressman Voted “NO” On The Massive, Wasteful Omnibus Bill:

Paul Anthony Gosar is an American Republican politician and member of the United States House of Representatives from Arizona since 2011, representing Arizona’s 4th congressional district.

Yesterday, Gosar took to his Facebook page to expose the reality of the massive Omnibus Spending Bill… and who is to blame… Why I Am Voting NO on the Massive Omnibus Spending Bill:

Once again I find myself shaking my head at the wasteful spending in DC and a flawed process that drops thousands of pages of text on us with 48 hours to “read” and understand. I wish I could put all the blame on big spending Democrats, liberals who seek to bankrupt our nation and others who are ignorant of the fiscal crisis within which we live. But I can’t. Congress is controlled by Republicans. So, this massive and wasteful spending bill is on Republican leadership—who continues the pattern I have seen for 5 years now.

‘Dear John, It’s Over!’ – Tea Party Group Launches ‘Replace Boehner’ Petition

“Dear John, It’s Over!” – Tea Party Group Launches “Replace Boehner” Petition (ZeroHedge, Feb 11, 2014):

Having folded (twice) once again, a growing number of Republicans are increasingly disavowed with Speaker Boehner. As WaPo reports, the Senate Conservatives Fund (a Tea Party group) is calling for the Speaker’s job, noting “unless we install a new leader who will actually go on offense, Democrats will never fear us and we will never have any leverage.” The group is launching a petition that seeks to encourage at least 15 House Republicans to refuse to support Boehner for speaker…

Dear John, IT's Over

And The Most Popular Political Party In America Is …

And the Most Popular Political Party in America is… (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Jan 8, 2014):

The following poll results from Gallup represent the most significant domestic news story I have come across in 2014 to-date. Gallup polling in 2013 showed that the highest number of Americans now identify as Independents since it starting asking the question 25 years ago. Specifically, 42% identify as Independents, versus 31% as Democrats and 25% as Republicans. Even more interesting, the trend accelerated as the year progressed. If we look at quarterly results, in 4Q13 46% identified as Independents, versus 29% Democrat and 22% Republican.

This is huge, huge news and it seems that my long held belief that both the Democrat and Republican parties are set to completely disintegrate during this current 4th Turning. Earlier in 2012, wrote a piece titled, The Seventy Percent, in which I predicted that no matter who would go on to win the Presidential election, 70% of the public would be disappointed.

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz blasts ‘party bosses’ in homecoming rally (CNN, Oct 21, 2013):

Sen. Ted Cruz was greeted by a screaming crowd of supporters and cheers of “Thank you Ted!” and “Welcome Home!” Monday night in Texas.The freshman senator said he was happy to be back home in Houston, and wasn’t afraid to be honest about his feelings on Washington.

“It is terrific to be back in America,” said Cruz as supporters waved homemade signs promoting “#MakeDCListen,” a hashtag that was a prominent part of Cruz’s 21-hour speech on the Senate floor in late September.

Dylan Ratigan RAGES Over ‘The Extraction Of America’ And The Bought-Off Congress (Video)

Dylan Ratigan Rages Over “The Extraction Of America” And The Bought-Off Congress (ZeroHedge, Oct 15, 2013):

It’s been a while since Dylan Ratigan made some headlines but the farce under way in Washington reminded us of his epic ‘falling over the edge’ rant from 2011. In a Santelli-esque rage, Ratigan loses it over the banking, trade, and taxation that is draining America of everything and how nothing will ever change as the Congress is completely bought-off. Both political parties are to blame but “until we get the money out of politics” there is no policy that will fix the mess that we are in, he exclaims (and is once again proven rigfht today). The sad truth is these kind of honest truth moments are few and far between on the mainstream media (though we suspect will increase as reality sinks in)… and Ratigan’s “mathematical facts” and vehemence make this must watch on a day when the US equity market hovers incredulously near all-time highs.

Peter Schiff On The Debt Ceiling Delusions

Peter Schiff On The Debt Ceiling Delusions (ZeroHedge, Oct 11, 2013):

Submitted by Peter Schiff via Euro Pacific Capital,

The popular take on the current debt ceiling stand-off is that the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party has a delusional belief that it can hit the brakes on new debt creation without bringing on an economic catastrophe. While Republicans are indeed kidding themselves if they believe that their actions will not unleash deep economic turmoil, there are much deeper and more significant delusions on the other side of the aisle. Democrats, and the President in particular, believe that continually taking on more debt to pay existing debt is a more responsible course of action. Even worse, they appear to believe that debt accumulation is the equivalent of economic growth.

If Republicans were to inexplicably prevail, and the federal government were to cut spending so that its expenditures matched its tax revenues (a truly radical idea) the country’s financial mess would be laid bare. The government would have to weigh the relative costs and benefits of making interest payments on Treasury debt (primarily to foreign creditors) or to trim entitlements promised to U.S. citizens. But those are choices we will have to make sooner or later anyway. In fact we should have dealt with these issues years ago. But generations of mechanistic debt ceiling increases have allowed us to perpetually kick the can down the road. What could possibly be gained by doing it again, particularly if it is done with no commitment to change course?

The Democrats’ argument that America needs to pay its bills is just hollow rhetoric. Paying off one’s Visa bill with a new and bigger MasterCard bill can’t be considered a legitimate payment of debt. At best it is a transfer. But in the government’s case, it doesn’t even qualify as that. Treasury debt is primarily bought by the Fed, foreign central banks, and major financial institutions. None of that will change with a debt ceiling increase. We will just go to the same people for greater quantities. So it’s like paying off your Visa card with a bigger Visa card.

Power Mad Obama Offers Two Choices: Unconditional Surrender Or Default

Power Mad Obama Offers Two Choices: Unconditional Surrender Or Default (Economic Collapse, Oct 9, 2013):

Barack Obama is warning that if he does not get everything that he wants that he will force the U.S. government into a devastating debt default which will cripple the entire global economy.  In essence, Obama has become so power mad that he is actually willing to take the entire planet hostage in order to achieve his goals.  A lot of people are blaming the government shutdown on the Republicans, but they have already voted to fund the entire government except for Obamacare.  The U.S. Constitution requires that all spending bills originate in the House of Representatives, and the House did their duty by passing a spending bill.  If the Senate or the President do not like the bill that the House has passed, then negotiations need to take place.  That is how our system works.  And the weak-kneed Republicans have already indicated that they are willing to give up virtually all of their prior demands.  In fact, if Obama offered all of them 20 dollar gift certificates to Denny’s to end this crisis they would probably jump at that deal.  But that is not good enough for Obama.  He has made it clear that he will settle for nothing less than the complete and unconditional surrender of the Republican Party.

Why is Obama doing this?  Why is Obama willing to bring the country to the brink of financial disaster?

It isn’t hard to figure out.  Just check out what one senior Obama administration official said last week

“We are winning…. It doesn’t really matter to us” how long the shutdown lasts “because what matters is the end result,” a senior Obama Administration official told the Wall Street Journal last week.

This is all about a political victory and crushing the Republicans.  Obama doesn’t really care how long this crisis lasts because he believes that he is getting the end result that he wants.

According to Obama, the Republican Party is just supposed to roll over and give him the exact spending bill that he wants and also give him another trillion dollar increase in the debt limit.

If the Republicans do not give him that, he is willing to plunge us into financial oblivion.
