It’s somewhat astounding that the Tea Party is so long on enthusiasm and short on common sense. Check this headline from Fox News: Tea Party Activists Revolt Against Boehner Amid Debt Crisis. Though it represents the voices of selected loud mouths it time for these folks to get a grip.
Here’s another from:
If Republicans cede to Obama’s demands to raise America’s debt ceiling above the already staggering current limit of $14.3 trillion, Obamacare will be funded, the bailouts will continue, and out-of-control federal bureaucrats will stay fat and happy – feasting on another wave of taxpayer money while our nation’s economy continues to sink. This is not even remotely credible!
Folks this is nothing more than an ad to sell a book and a newsletter. Wake up and smell yesterday. Don’t prove P.T. Barnum right!
And we certainly wouldn’t want to miss the intelligence displayed by allegedly the nations largest Tea Party when she calls from the removal of John Boehner as Speaker of the House. What seem to have been missed by the detractors is that The House Republicans are under no obligation whatsoever to agree to raise the debt ceiling. They can simply say no and force Obama to cut federal spending by about 40 percent—which is what it would take to insure that monthly government expenses do not exceed monthly tax revenue. In the end it is unlikely the new plan of Boehner’s will pass, Harry Reids Bill is DOA and the Cut Cap and Balance which passed the House was torpedoed by Reid will result in the world seeing that Obama and his left wing fear mongers will be exposed as the check for everything will go out on time.
(WASHINGTON) House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) today released the following statement in support of Speaker John Boehner’s debt plan:
“Under Speaker John Boehner’s leadership, the House of Representatives has advanced the most serious spending reforms considered during my tenure in Congress. From the House Republican Budget to the Cut, Cap and Balance plan passed last week, our proposals to rein in government spending have been serious, substantive and responsible.
The same cannot be said about the Democrats that control Washington. Neither Senator Harry Reid nor President Barack Obama have taken seriously the mandate from the American people to rein in out-of-control government spending, and in the case of Senator Reid, he has abdicated his responsibilities– offering no legislative alternative to the spending proposals that have passed the House.
In discussions with the White House and Senate over spending and the debt limit, Speaker Boehner has been the adult in the room, with a serious and substantive plan. He rightly left the negotiations when the President, by his own admission, moved the goal posts and demanded dramatically higher tax increases.
Some outside groups are comparing the upcoming vote on raising the debt limit to the vote on TARP. They are quite simply wrong. I was a leading opponent of TARP because it created a massive slush fund that invited abuse. It eroded moral hazard in the marketplace and placed the taxpayers on the hook to pay for the folly of Wall Street investment banks – it took the country in the wrong direction.
The debate today is over how much spending will be cut in exchange for an increase in the debt limit. That is movement in the right direction. Many of us, myself included, would like to go further and are disappointed by the bad faith that has become a hallmark of the White House and our Senate counterparts, and in fact we have voted for more substantive reforms.
Speaker Boehner has empowered members of our conference to be leaders and the results are reflected in the passage the Ryan Budget and Cut, Cap and Balance and he continues to ably represent us in negotiations over the debt limit. The result of those discussions, limited as they may be, will be a significant step in the right direction – toward fiscal responsibility and a government that lives within its means. The Speaker has my full support and the support of our conference as he negotiates on behalf of the House of Representatives and the American people.”
