08:10PM THIS JUST IN: Minority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell(R-KY) has advised Majority Leader Harry Reid(D-NA) that he will not negotiate with him. Only the President. And, he plans to filibuster the Reid bill rather than allow a simple majority vote. This is an alarming development. What sicko poisoned the “tea” served to Republicans in Congress?
“Economic Terrorists Take Down USA“
That could be the headline next week should Moody’s and S&P’s downgrade our AAA bond rating launching hikes in interest rates on assorted loans and other financial instruments. But, more important, there could global chaos around the world as the USA is no longer recognized as the “Gold Standard” for doing business. With a low US dollar, what’s to prevent China from taking over as top dog in the financial world. They have been itching for this opportunity! Perhaps the world will be forced to return to a real “Gold Standard…one using actual gold. By accelerating our financial problems beyond a quick resolution, The Tea Party has done to us what no other power in the world has been able to do in 70 years!
Have you noticed how quiet it has been since the Tea Party representatives in the House began their work? MICHELE BACHMANN HAS BEEN SILENT (except to say she’ll vote “no” on raising the debt ceiling) since the Tea Party Caucus has been reeking havoc on our financial future. Is she Svengali behind the scenes? She founded The Tea Party Caucus. Can we lay the damage of Tea Party (Republican) intransigence at the feet of Mrs. Bachmann, who is running for President? She has been conspicuously absent from the news broadcasts that I have seen. And, I watch news all day!
So, John Boehner got his 218 votes. His bill will go to The Senate in short order. Senator Harry Reid (D-NA) will strip all of it save the HR number and insert his bill into the document. He will file “his bill” with House before midnight.[Time Saving measure] By Monday, President Obama may have a bill to sign into law. [Source: Chuck Todd, Political Director, MSNBC] These have been times that try men’s souls. The Tea Party has been tried in the balance and found lacking. What does the future have for John Boehner in the way of a political career? Will the Tea Party force him out? Time will tell. We just need to win 25 more seats to re-take The House in November. I can’t wait!
