The Facts of budget life

There is a lot of spin going on so lets just cut to the chase here:

1. Any addi­tional money that you give to con­gress will be spent by congress.

2. There is no money put aside for Social Secu­rity and there never was.

3. And if Social Secu­rity is not paid out, it will be because the Pres­i­dent makes such a deci­sion.

4. No mat­ter what the final result of this debate, the MSM will give what­ever credit there is to the Admin­is­tra­tion and any blame to the GOP.

5. The only pri­or­ity of the non-​teaparty repub­li­cans is to give your Tax dol­lars to their friends rather than the democ­rats friends.

6. The only rea­son the GOP is fight­ing at all over spend­ing is because of the Tea Party.

7. The only pur­pose of hav­ing a “com­mis­sion” is for elected offi­cials to duck the deci­sions that they were elected to make.

8. Even though the GOP house has passed bill after bill, the Demo­c­ra­tic Sen­ate will not act until the MSM pushes them to do so.

9. The moment fis­cal con­ser­v­a­tives take the pres­sure off of the GOP they will cave

10. Democ­rats are so unpop­u­lar and Obama is so mis­trusted by his base they he and they need to avoid offend­ing them at all costs.

11. Democ­rats see this as their best chance to win in 2012 and will hap­pily cause a train wreck to regain power.

The bot­tom line is the only way to win this fight is to charge right ahead. Do what Byron York says in his piece. Pass some­thing and force Obama to veto it or the sen­ate to fail to approve it. Make them act or fail to act.

Iner­tia helps the Democ­rats and estab­lish­ment repub­li­cans who don’t want actual change. If you want some­thing done the DO SOME­THING!

Update:
They are lis­ten­ing:

While Barack Obama went to the press for the third time in 17 days, John Boehner and Eric Can­tor called his bluff in the House. The Repub­li­can lead­er­ship announced that the House would vote on a plan to raise the debt ceil­ing by $2.4 tril­lion and match­ing cuts:

It should be inter­est­ing to see what the Democ­rats do about this.

While Barack Obama went to the press for the third time in 17 days, John Boehner and Eric Cantor called his bluff in the House. The Republican leadership announced that the House would vote on a plan to raise the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion and matching cuts:

It should be interesting to see what the Democrats do about this.
