I mean what can I say.
He goes on national TV’s Meet the Press and asserts lie up on lie and is NEVER challenge on those statements.
Question: Is this a wakeup call to Washington.
Answer to question: “THIS IS A TEA PARTY DOWNGRADE”
A Tea Party downgrade?
You mean THIS same Tea Party?
“Fiscal Responsibility by government honors and respects the freedom of the individual to spend the money that is the fruit of their own labor. A constitutionally limited government, designed to protect the blessings of liberty, must be fiscally responsible or it must subject its citizenry to high levels of taxation that unjustly restrict the liberty our Constitution was designed to protect. Such runaway deficit spending as we now see in Washington D.C. compels us to take action as the increasing national debt is a grave threat to our national sovereignty and the personal and economic liberty of future generations. “
Tea Partiers say the debt deal *didn't cut enough federal spending, was crafted behind closed doors, and assigned responsibility for further cuts to a small, joint committee of Congress.
From the TPP:
The truth is that the spending can be cut quickly and in a *large enough amount to avoid blowing past the debt ceiling
Even the liberal favorite ragmag, the NY Times said “That Monolithic Tea Party Just Wasn’t There”
….They did not want to risk damaging an already-fragile economy with a potential government default. The majority of Tea Party supporters, in fact, wanted an agreement. CBS News poll in mid-July
- When Tea Party supporters were asked if the debt-ceiling agreement should include only tax increases, only spending cuts, or a combination of both, the majority — 53 percent — said that it should include a combination. Forty-five percent preferred only spending cuts. “We can claim some victory that we had this debate at all, that we’re talking about how we can cut spending and how far we need to shrink government,” said Mark Meckler, a co-founder of the group.
The Tea Party *wanted cuts, far more reaching beon that of which “Washington” agreed to.
And a majority of the supporters agreed with a “combination of both” Cuts and Revenue….JOHN!
“Barack Obama put a $4.7 deal on the table, 3 times he was refused that deal”
Did John Kerry see this deal?
Please PROVE IT!
The House passed 3 different plans, two of which were tabled, voted down and threats made by this President to veto it.
House plans that have passed:
Paul Ryan’s plan that on April 15th 2011 The Republican-led House a $3.5 trillion spending bill for fiscal year 2012 that cuts billions of dollars in federal spending and cuts $6T over 10 years.
The Tea Party favor this!
But the door of the Senate was slammed in its face by Harry Reid.
Next came the Cut Cap & Balance which passed the House by 234 Ayes, to 190 Nays on July 19th, 2011 which would have cut back $3.7T over ten years.
The Tea Party Favor this but wanted more cuts beon the $3.7T
But once again Reid slams the Senate door in the face of this bill and ‘tabled’ it 51 to 46 and the President threaten veto.
And now the deal that brought on the AAA rating drop on the US.
A Bi-partisan bill that passed the House by 218 to 210 And Senate by 67-27
The very same bill the Tea Party Patriots DID NOT want, that only cut (as claimed) $2.2T from the debt.
S&P's reason for the downgrade was that it *DIDN'T CUT the debt enough.
Kerry never seizes to amaze me at the lies he spews, about his War record and now this pack of lies that the TPP made this happen and that the President had a plan.
