Senate Republicans & Democrats have blocked action on a Democratic approach to resolving the debt-ceiling crisis. The outcome of that vote was expected and did not directly affect the behind-the-scenes negotiations on a compromise that would avert default


Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is planning a Senate filibuster next week in an attempt to force debt ceiling negotiations into the open.

“We’ve had not one minute of debate about the debt ceiling in any committee,” he said in an interview with C-SPAN‘s “Newsmakers” that aired on Sunday. “We haven’t had a budget in two years. We haven’t had an appropriations bill in two years. So I’m part of the freshmen group in the Senate that’s saying, ‘no more.'”

Paul’s plan: “Next week, we will filibuster until we talk about the debt ceiling, until we talk about proposals.”

He added that a group of senators in the “conservative wing” of the Republican Party will also be presenting a proposal to tie raising the debt limit to passage of a balanced budget amendment.

“[W]e will actually vote in favor of raising the debt ceiling next week if we can, but it will be contingent on passing a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution,” he said, adding, “I’m not completely without the sense that we may need to raise the debt ceiling. But I will only do it if we have significant budgetary reform, and to me that means you have to balance your budget every year.”

Paul’s announcement picks up where Sen. Ron Johnson‘s (R-Wis.) one-man filibuster attempt last Tuesday left off. Johnson declared that as long as the debt ceiling negotiations are held behind closed doors, he would block all unanimous consent calls, effectively putting a stop on Senate business.

“Unless we receive some assurance from the Democrat leadership that we will actually start addressing our budget out in the open, in the bright light of day — I will begin to object,” Johnson said on the Senate floor.

Johnson’s stunt lasted a little more than two hours, eventually stopped by a procedural move by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

A balanced budget amendment has wide support within the Senate GOP caucus, but it has little chance of passing because of opposition from Democrats. Amending the Constitution requires a two-thirds majority in both chambers of Congress and ratification by three-fourths of the states.

The Hill has also reported that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell‘s (R-Ky.) office objects to tying a raise in the debt limit to passage of a balanced budget amendment.

Dick Morris explains how the administrations cost estimates are a bad joke and that Obamacare will cost almost $500 billion more than predicted and will force people to pay much, much more for their insurance coverage.

Obama once again proves he can not set aside his out right distasteful arrogance, Even Liberal Democrat powerhouse Bill Clinton has seemed to turn his back on Obama praising the GOP field. Obama claims how serious the debt talks are how Congress should work through the 4th of July holiday but he gets to go to Martha’s Vineyard. Sen. Mitch McConnell invited Obama to join them in the debt ceiling talks but yet he says it is not a conversation worth having. So once again Obama places himself over the better of the American voter. The Obama camp wonders why they are struggling in fundraiser and well the polls as well.


It amazes me at how these Democratic Senators and President forget that the United States of America has a thing called a Constitution

“When I look around this room, I see America’s future. Our doctors, our teachers, our nurses, our engineers, our scientists, our soldiers, our Congressman, our Senators and maybe our President.”

However, Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution says: “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”

As a Small Business owner I am white born in California 31 years old and can’t get a business grant I “do not meet the criteria” I went to the bank and a loan was approved almost instantly I met the criteria. Someone from Pakistan comes in they instantly meet the criteria for a Government grant, they do not have to pay back the money to open up another quickie mart. Can those that read this please tell me where is the justification to this? This is why so many Americans have such a distaste for people of another country. Being BORN here being a citizen here I can not get a grant for my business but a foreigner can come in and in a snap of a finger be granted one? I am not filthy rich I work hard to make ends meat.

Now the Democrats in office want to take it a bit further, once again Sen. Harry Reid will introduce the Dream ACT. The Dream Act sounds nice and loveable doesn’t it? I mean who doesn’t have a dream? So this leaves me with the next question? How can I as an American born citizen apply for the EXACT same benefits a “non” American born person will be entitled to. There is that wonderful word again entitled to since when should someone who is not even born in this great country be more entitled to something over someone who is BORN here?


Well what do we have here? Gov. Jon Huntsman and former ambassador to China also has picked up a HUGE MEGA endorsement from Liberal Sen. Harry Reid. That’s right the Liberals are now wanting to try and hand pick the Republican nominee.


“For the first time in our history, we are passing down to the next generation a country that is less powerful, less compassionate, less competitive and less confident than the one we got,” said Huntsman, who recently resigned as the U.S. ambassador to China. “This, ladies and gentlemen, is totally unacceptable and it is totally un-American.” Jon Huntsman

Meaning basically he will not hold Obama accountable for almost 4 years of failed policies and leadership.
