Senate reaches budget deal





Harry Reid SC

According to U.S. Senate leaders, the chamber has developed a plan that would both end the federal government shutdown and prevent the first debt default in the nation’s history.

Reports released Wednesday indicate that the compromise includes funding for the government through mid-January while the debt limit would be raised temporarily. Both issues would be revisited by congress in the first two months of 2014.

Sen. Ted Cruz, who led an impassioned, 21-hour speech against ObamaCare prior to the shutdown, said he will not try to delay a vote on the plan.

“I have no objections to the timing of this vote,” he noted, explaining there is “nothing to be gained from delaying this vote one day or two days.”

After conservative groups lambasted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for proposing a plan that gives Democrats most of their requests, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) thanked him for his assistance in reaching the compromise.

Additional reports indicate that Speaker of the House John Boehner will allow the Republican-led chamber to vote on — and likely pass — this compromise. His efforts to put forward a viable deal earlier this week were unsuccessful.

The stock market reacted positively to the news of a deal Wednesday, though many conservatives did not.

Obama and his minions have sufficiently frightened Republican legislators, who apparently believe the apocalyptic forecasts of those who want to endlessly increase our debt. Americans are growing tired of their constant capitulation, however, and will have an opportunity to express that sentiment at the ballot box.

  1. This is what the spineless traitor boehner has done for the American people, once again!! This is from the commie's over at Daily Koz

    "Victory is upon us! Republicans have completely folded, agreeing to reopen the government, pay federal employees and extend the debt ceiling while getting absolutely nothing in return.

    Credit for this victory belongs entirely to President Barack Obama. Two years ago he vowed to never again negotiate with Republicans over the debt limit, and his refusal to negotiate is why we have emerged victorious today."

    Well, everyone said boehner would fold as usual, and they were right. This traitor has lived up to his reputation as the no brain, spineless POS he is!

  2. How could they give in!!! I want them to come see what our world is like! Not just show some rich asaholes with "problems" to trick America into believing Obamacare is a gods send. Its families like mine that suffer! My kids were thrown off of Medicaid thanks to obama's leadership. My child has asthma.. Can I sue Obama if something happens to her? Of course not… But I but they will come rape me of my hard earned tax refund if I do not give onto their dictatorish demands and spend money my family doesn't have on obamacare. Trust when I say that this is just the beginning of the end and our leader is surely going to lead us straight to hell. Today I am saddened to live in such a world….
