Default Dems try to jam bill through congress

oops I mean the repubs

Boehner’s Budget Cram-Down Imposes Risks On GOP Reps

House Speaker John Boehner is releasing the huge, $1 trillion 2015 government budget on Monday, only three days before the vote on Wednesday, Dec. 11.

That delay jams GOP legislators, who won’t be able to identify or oppose many of the unpopular spending programs that are likely buried deep inside the complex budget, which was drafted by GOP and Democratic members of the appropriations committees.

“There’s no way this huge bill can be addressed effectively,” Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking GOP member of the Senate’e budget committee, said on Sunday. “There are going to be thousands of pages.”

Boehner has held the budget bill secret until the last days before much of the federal government shuts down for lack of cash on Dec. 12.

Boehner declined to describe or release the proposed budget last week, which would have allowed legislators — plus GOP voters and advocacy groups — time to identify and rally against spending programs that are opposed by their constituents and supporters.

Those spending allotments could fund new energy regulations, enforcement of rules requiring employers to fund abortions, and President Barack Obama’s award of work-permits to foreigners living illegally in the United States.

No, what's important is "“we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it".

Your comment, "payback is a biatch." says otherwise.

We should all be pissed off about bills that get rushed through to avoid scrutiny.

For all the obvious reasons, scoring partisan points should not be on the list of acceptable responses.

Boehner needs to go. Enough is enough. Hopefully the true conservatives align with boehner hating dems to vote it down.

The bill is twice as big this time. It's only fair (for the tax payers) to do as he said in 2009.

Boehner said Democrats Should Post Half-Trillion Dollar Omnibus Spending Bill Online Immediately so the American people have adequate time to read the measure and understand what is in it.

Hey, not fair dude. You can't pull out his old quotes when he was grandstanding against the dems. What he said in '09 was only relevant in '09 when pelvis was speaker. Now that he's speaker, he shouldn't be held to the standards he set.
