Watauga GOP 2011 Convention Heard from U.S. Representative Foxx
She advised us to pay attention to what they were doing and not to let the media bother us. She then went over what is happening. As many of us know, the Democrats never completed their job last year and left without passing a budget. Now to keep the government from being shut down, the House has to keep passing continuing resolutions (CR’s). Everyone also probably knows that the House wants to save the taxpayers 61billion dollars but the Democrats who control the Senate and the president’s veto won’t let them. Dems only want four and a half billion.
This is where it gets good. House members gave them the CR for several weeks but the Dems had to give them four billion in tax payer savings. Harry Reid of course said “No way,” thus threatening a government shutdown. Then he and his fellow senators read the proposal and realized the cuts were those the president had proposed. So the Dems quickly passed the CR.
Now it is getting ready to happen again and this time the cost cutters are asking for six billion. And, again, the cuts are those the president asked for. Bottom line, is that Boehner and his troops will then have gotten way more than the original four and one half billion Harry Reid proposed.
Ain’t this fun?
