HOUSE PASSES BOEHNER DEBT CEILING BILL-NOW INCLUDES A BALANCED BUDGET – PASSES BILL 218 – 210. NOW ONTO THE SENATE WHICH SENATOR MAJORITY REID PLANS TO ONCE AGAIN TABLE (KILL BILL) AND NOT BRING UP FOR A VOTE. SO MUCH FOR THE END OF THE WORLD.
SEE ROLL CALL S 627 BUDGET CONTROL ACT 2011. NO DEMOCRATS VOTED TO STOP THE OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING. TAX AND SPEND DEMOCRATS PREFER THE SAME BUSINESS AS USUAL LEGISLATION. THEY HAVE NEITHER CONVICTION TO PROTECT THE NEXT GENERATION BUT RATHER TO KEEP THE SOCIALIST PLAN OF DESTRUCTION.
THE BIGGEST ROAD CHICKEN UNDERWAY. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL FIND OUT SOON WHETHER THE DEMOCRATS ALL ALONG ARE CRYING WOLF. THE AUGUST 2ND DEADLINE BEING NOTHING MORE THAN A DEADLINE TO END THE CONGRESS SESSION AND BREAK FOR THE SUMMER SESSION.
The Senate on Friday evening rejected House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) plan to raise the debt limit, upping the ante in the game of chicken between House and Senate.
The 59-41 vote, on a motion to table the resolution passed by the House less than two hours before, ran mostly along party lines, easily reaching the simple majority required to sink legislation in the upper chamber.
Six Republicans joined Democrats to table the Boehner resolution: Sens. Jim DeMint (S.C.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Mike Lee (Utah), Rand Paul (Ky.), and David Vitter (La.).
Boehner’s office said the Senate’s refusal to take up the House plan puts the blame on Democrats if the U.S. defaults.
