According to Politico, Congress is “poised to miss its April 15th deadline for finishing next year’s budget without even considering a draft in either chamber.” (“Congress sees no budget rush” 04/12/10) With that “Congressional Mulligan” as my outline, I am “poised” to miss the IRS’ “April 15th deadline” without considering filling out their ridiculous and repetitive forms.. I am a proud and un-hyphenated American citizen as opposed to one of our “Congressional Potentates”, how well do you think that that plan will work out for me?
Lost within the hubris and sarcasm of the liberal Congress missing an April 15th budgetary deadline, it isn’t difficult to figure out why this one will go by the boards. Congress and all of its lemmings and lackeys are too busy poking and probing the returns of ordinary citizens in order to bankroll any number of progressive programs and pogroms meant to penalize the productive. After all, Obama has a “scamulus” bill, a “health scare” bill and a “controversial” globaloney warming/climate change bill that are in dire need of the disposable and non-disposable income of the nation’s middle (and soon to be lower) class..
What’s the rush? Its only the BUDGET, it has been proven to not be one of the dozens of Obama “number one priorities” just like the concept of encouraging job production as opposed to destroying jobs within an economy that the liberals have intentionally decimated. Besides, according to the liberal lunatic Alcee Hastings “there ain’t no rules here, we make ‘em up as we go along”.. So with that as your totalitarian template and as proven by the “What me worry?” Obama “Scorched Earth Socialism”, the “rules” only apply to the VICTIMS of liberalism. Such malleability is only available and applicable to the Democrats and as “promised” by Obama, it is always done under the cover of “transparency”..
There is no hurry especially when the collateral damage surrounding the litany of liberal lunacy desperately needs the healing power/distraction technique of “time” relative to the impending mid term election or as Barney Frank will be calling it, “Our Wiberal Waterwoo”.. Even the alleged “pro life Democrat” and Obama water boy Bart Stupak has mysteriously decided to call it a career.. The liberals may “skip the budget process altogether this year” and why not when the CBO has already said that the Obama budget of 2011 “will generate nearly $10 trillion in cumulative budget deficits over the next 10 years”. For good measure they also say that Obama has created “a combined $9.75 trillion in deficits over the next decade” AND Obama’s “Debt will rise to 90% of GDP”! (CBO report: Debt will rise to 90% of GDP” Washington Times 03/27/10) With an impressive resume like that which is already on the table, how could the collectivist clown possibly top that?
This is “a way to avoid the unpleasantness of voting on spending, deficits and taxes in an election year.” Such “unpleasantness” hasn’t bothered the liberals until very recently and now such a concept BEFORE the midterm when nearly EVERY liberal in Congress is up for re-election has become the equivalent of a dose of Ipecac.. Obama, Pelosi (the original California Raisin) and Reid have demanded the “lock step” unity that they recently accused the Republicans of (See: Progressive Projection..) and the congressional underlings have quietly walked the progressive plank. Fear not, as there are any number of places within the sewers of Washington for all of these soon-to-be unemployed liberals to “hide” and Obama will ensure that the taxpayers involuntarily “reward” these totalitarian team players for their cooperation..
Regan Lachapelle, spokesweasel for Wrinkly Reid said that the budget “is on a list of things that are possible for this work period”. With the liberals it is hard to determine which is more frightening, what is “possible” or what is “probable”.. When it comes to “number one priorities”, the liberals have simply decided to invert the logical list and work from the bottom up. Therefore “jobs” and a “balanced budget” haven’t even crossed their confused kaleidoscopic minds as opposed to the imaginary stimulus’ plans, health scare mumbo-jumbo and any number of totalitarian takeovers..
“The practical consequences of failing to produce a federal budget for the next year are about the same as they are for a family that doesn’t set a plan for income and spending..” Really, isn’t that heartwarming.. Well, a “family” can’t just print money in its basement to cover itself but Obama Company can. If the “family” did that, they would be subject arrest as “counterfeiters”. The “family” can’t just DEMAND that other “families” pony up their hard-earned cash so that it can be lovingly redistributed to other “families” without their approval. The “family” can’t just “spend” because “an inconvenient truth” known as a BILL comes every month reminding them that if they don’t pay NOW, they will owe even more of what this company knows that they don’t have any of.. The “family” HAS to pay this, now or later. Unfortunately with Obama, ALL of our “families” will be paying for his negligence and stupidity for untold generations to come..
Congress doesn’t NEED a budget to tax and spend. The liberal Congress in place now stands as your outline for such blasphemy. In taking a look at the “Congressional Budget Act of 1974”, Title III covers the congressional steps for setting fiscal policy and this is NOT signed by the President. Here is the PROOF that the liberal missed when they try to blame Bush for the mess that a liberal Congress since 2006 has created which Obama has allegedly “inherited”.
The Federal Reserve Chairman said last week that “the government’s books must be put in order through tax increases or slashing spending for entitlement programs..” Being that at least 95% of the liberal voting base are the beneficiaries of these “entitlement programs”, which option do you think Obama and his caliphate will be leaning towards? Besides, when you have turned welfare into an “entitlement”, it becomes a “right” and when it becomes a “right”, the government HAS to be involved in its implementation..
“In the House, rank-and-file lawmakers are showing signs of political fatigue from a series of difficult votes, including enactment of the stimulus and health care laws and passage of a controversial climate change bill last year..” I wouldn’t necessarily call it “political fatigue”, I would say that the cyanide that the liberal “leadership” forced upon the “lock step liberal rank-and-file” was more of a time delayed or time release formula..
“All of that raises this question: Why would Democratic leaders expose themselves and their rank and file to so much political risk?” That raises at least one question from me. When has the concept of the “political risk” for OTHER Democrats EVER been a concern for Obama and his administration? They have DEMANDED the “lock step” devotion to the “historic” heretic from Day One.. They may have believed that he could walk on water and when the “rank and file” stupidly attempted to follow him across the Potomac, it turned into the political equivalent of taking Ted Kennedy up on his generous offer for a ride home..
“Many Democrats believe they have a responsibility to at least try to put a budget in place.” Its good to see that they at least didn’t have the audacity (of hope) to describe it as a “moral” responsibility as the word “moral” is as ineffective when used by a liberal as either “patriotic” or “sanitary”.. Just as the mopey Obama himself said to CBS “News” a few days back, “I think that the vast majority of Americans know that we’re trying hard”.. (“Obama addresses harsh criticism” Politico 04/02/10) I can certainly guarantee you that the WORLD would be a much better place if you and your mindless minions would stop trying altogether..
