Whatever Happened to the Budget?

The last time the Federal government passed a budget was April 29, 2009. To give perspective, the popular box office hits of the time were, Hannah Montana, The Movie, and Fast and Furious.

Technically speaking, this was not a traditional budget, as it was a complete reworking of the president’s submitted budget, which failed to garner a single vote from even his own party. In order to find the last “real” budget passed, one that was offered by the president and voted on intact (for the most part) by both houses of Congress, we have to travel back to 1997 under Bill Clinton. The FY2010 budget passed on April 29, 2009, was actually more of an omnibus spending bill, constructed by a dominate democrat Congress under the auspices of ‘saving us from the terrible calamity left by Bush’.

Sarah Palin backs Ted Cruz, tells GOP to ‘Woman Up’ on Government Shutdown and ObamaCare

Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) may be the targets of the ′Surrender Caucus′, but they do have one loud supporter. Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin tells the GOP to ′woman up′ on the government shutdown and ObamaCare debate. The U.S. Senate is about to take up the House continuing resolution, CR, which would defund the Affordable Care Act. Harry Reid is lining up his party to defeat it and block a potential filibuster by Cruz, Lee and Rand Paul (R-KY). The RINO brigade, led by John ′The Old Faker′ McCain is also busy whipping Republicans to stop the ′wacko birds′. But to Sarah Palin, the GOP Establishment is ′gutless and rudderless′, and compromising far too much.

Obama Income Inequality Worsens In America

Under Barack Obama, income inequality for all in America has gotten much worse in the United States. This news comes as Obama tries to pivot back to the economy, seeing as how he totally failed in foreign policy the last few weeks. But Obama has been failing with the economy since taking office. While the White House tries to spin good news about an economic recovery, the only folks benefiting are the wealthy. About 95% of all gains in income went to the top 1%. Also, the top 1% now account for 38% of all consumer spending. From when Bill Clinton took office to when George W. Bush left the White House, the top 1% went from 20% to 26% of all consumer spending. While school children are denied access to White House tours, lobbyists have free run of the place as they petition Obama for more money to feed their wealthy clients.

We are the Problem

I’m not exactly sure when it began, perhaps with the promise of a chicken in every pot, or maybe it was decades before, but the problem is clearly how we view politics in America. Whether it is state and local elections, or national campaigns, as each cycle rolls by, we tend to expect more and more. Politics have become a game of ‘one-upmanship’ largely at the expense of We The Taxpayer.

The Demise of the GOP

(ed note- RightPundits welcomes new writer, Brady Shaw.)

I believe we live in an historic time. We have watched the Progressive movement over the past 100 years chip away at our Constitutional societal constructs and infiltrate every aspect of government, now including even the Republican party. Oh, there are still a few great Republicans out there, carrying the torch of liberty exemplified in the Tea Party movement and so on, but the party establishment seems to be entranced with the same Progressive mindset as the modern liberal. I believe we are witnessing the demise of the GOP before our very eyes. Read the rest of this entry »

Blue Angels Grounded, Cancelled by Obama Budget

The Navy′s Blue Angels are grounded, cancelled by the sequestration budget cut thanks to Barack Obama. The rest of the famous stunt-flying team′s schedule for 2013 has been suspended, including New York City′s Fleet Week, much like the White House tours. Likewise the same fate has the Air Force′s Thunderbirds grounded for the rest of their 2013 schedule. Air Force General Mike Hostage of Air Combat Command has also begun grounding other air operations, standing down units due to federal budget cuts. The impact on training and operational readiness will certainly be a negative one.

Senate Passes Budget with $1 Trillion in Taxes

The Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate passes a budget for Fiscal Year 2014 early Saturday morning. Led by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), the proposed spending bill puts the federal budget at $3.7 Trillion dollars and includes some $1 Trillion dollars in new taxes. Yet, the budget, the first the Senate has passed in 4 years, will at best reduce budget deficits by only some $1.85 Trillion over the next ten years. Given that the vote was along party lines, with four Democrats joining all Republicans voting against it, making it a 50-49 vote, there is little chance that it will succeed getting through the House. There, the Republican-controlled House has also passed, along party lines, the latest Paul Ryan budget which proposes reducing budget deficits by some $4 Trillion over the next ten years. But are either bills what America really needs?

Obama Charm Offensive like a Fake Mustache

Barack Obama wearing a fake mustache makes as much sense as his recent charm offensive to appear being cordial to House and Senate Republicans. Obama has already made it quite clear that he does not think there is a spending problem in Washington, DC, and is not worried about the rapidly growing National Debt. Of course he doesn′t since he has contributed the most to it for any single president! With budget talks under way before the March 27 deadline when the federal government runs out of money, again, and another round of debt limit talks by May, when our line of credit is maxed out, again, all Obama wants is to raise more tax revenue. His immediate problem is that the public is starting to get wise to his tricks after attempts to scare the nation during the sequester negotiations failed when numerous lies told by Obama and his administration were unmasked. Now we have proof from an unnamed White House senior staff member that the charm offensive is a ″joke″ and being orchestrated purely for Media consumption. What next?
