Since The RINO’s Caved On Spending Can We Expect Any Less On Amnesty And Pork ?

 

 

 

” Fresh off his no-compromise victory against Republicans during the one-sixth government shutdown, the president has some more divisive issues in store for the American people. Wow, what a shock.

Among these: amnesty for illegal immigrants, passing a $3.8 trillion budget, raising taxes, and more kickbacks for Democrat allies. Anybody really surprised about this coming from the “professional activist” president?

Here’s a novel idea: Why don’t we let the American people determine their own agenda for a change, instead of giving more power to corrupt and inept Washington politicians to do it for us?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Debt Ceiling: Assets Available to Prevent Default

 

 

 

 

 

” The debt ceiling, or the legal limit the federal government may borrow, is set currently at $16.4 trillion.[1] In his latest report, Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner predicts that the United States will need to increase the debt ceiling sometime between February 15, 2013, and early March 2013.[2] The Congressional Research Service estimates the federal government will have to issue an additional $700 billion in debt above the current statutory limit to finance obligations for the remainder of FY2013.[3]

WHERE WE ARE

Congress is currently considering whether it should raise the debt ceiling. This is not new territory. Congress has raised, extended, or revised the definition of the debt ceiling 78 separate times since 1960,[4] including 11 times in the past 11 years.[5] However, raising the debt ceiling for the 12th time in as many years without recognizing and correcting systemic problems would have consequences beyond merely tapping revenue and assets to meet FY2013 budget commitments. Continuing to pass debt ceiling increases without proper spending reforms would be irresponsible.[6]

 

 

 

 

Bang

  “Rep. Paul Ryan, the avid hunter who is Mitt Romney’s running mate, is warning that President Obama in a second term will advocate for gun control, one of his passions before running for president in 2008.

“What I worry about as a hunter, as a person who believes in the Second Amendment, as a gun owner, is knowing that President Obama – in his earlier career, prior to his presidency – was an advocate for gun control. I worry about what his attitude will be once he never has to face voters again,” Ryan, a Wisconsin bow hunter, told Outdoor Life.

“That to me is a concern just as a gun owner, that this is somebody who has a history of being hostile to the Second Amendment. He hasn’t, for political reasons I believe, done much to go after the Second Amendment, but his history, his party, lead me to be concerned about what he would be like in a second term,” he added”
