… What the C.R. represents [#budget reconciliation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 1st,2015

.. yes , it does represent political failure of the GOP to get the job done . Simple , the full government budget is not done yet . A C.R. , or continuing resolution , needs to be passed in order to aid in finishing the work of Congress in passing the other bills ..

.. but using reconciliation also represents another signal : the Nuclear Option . The DemoCraps would have nobody to blame but themselves if Mitch McConnell decides to pull this option ..

.. the DemoCraps started it in 2014 . They knew that they were likely to lose the US Senate majority . The only question is by how much ? The Dems wanted to jam the appointed boards and judiciary with as many ObamaCraps as possible . Dingy Harry Reid himself pulled the trigger , and has now set the precedent with this . Now it is time for payback ..

.. BIG TIME !!!! …

.. now the minority will not be able to filibuster squat …

… Before They Left Town [#Senator goes ThermoNuclear]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 9th,2014

.. and I do not blame him one bit .

.. Dingy Harry Reid , the soon – to – be Senate minority leader , has this game he likes to play with legislation . There is a parliamentary tactic in the US Senate which is called ” filling the tree . ” …

.. Once you ” fill the tree , ” you cannot submit or add any amendments to the bill at all . Considering that it was about the ” border security ” bill , one would think that there would be a chance for them . With Dingy Harry , not a chance . He runs the place like a dictatorship …

.. when this happened , there was a filibuster on the bill . Not a big shock . The vote was 50 – 50 , with members on both sides voting on both sides of the filibuster …

.. I think that Dingy Harry wanted this , so that the DummyCraps could have the issue . The thing is , the DummyCraps did not pass a ” border security ” bill . The House did . The House also does not trust Dingy Harry , because the Senate may try to jam through their ” Gang of 8 ” comprehensive immigration bill through in a House – Senate conference committee . I think that they would , if they though that the could get away with it …

.. the thing was that McCain [being an Arizonan] wanted amendments . There were none . So , he went bananas . He does not do that often , but in this case , more power to him …
