Congressman Hinton would be a "no."
With the GOP's betrayal of the people of the United States with this con job that fixes NOTHING in our budget, I've got to say this in words even Ridgefield Barbie can understand:
Congressman Hinton would be a "no."
I get that she's all a flitter about avoiding "default." But this is where I remind Babs that when it comes to cowardice, a hero only dies once.
Barbie's political cowardice?
In viewing all of this, Congressman Hinton has only one question: does this legislation SOLVE THE PROBLEM?
Of course not.
It's so far from "solving" anything that I am... again... ashamed of the party I have worked so hard and sacrificed so much for over the years.
NOW is the time to address the issue. People like Barbie lack the courage to confront the issues NOW, either not knowing or caring that as time goes on, this problem will get worse... and worse. Ultimately, the trouble surrounding our impending bankruptcy, which is still confronting this Nation, will make this controversy look like a fender-bender.
This scam has no cuts. This scam changes nothing. This scam makes no changes while forking over ANOTHER $2.4 trillion for Obama to waste, making the GOP WILLING participants in our fiscal rape... just as guilty as the fringe leftists that have put us in this position in the first place.
And Babs doesn't have the guts to fight for what's right.
And before that, this:

More stupidity: How Obama screwed the GOP and us all on the debt ceiling scam.
So, the news is out: The deal is cut and we're screwed.
The claim?WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ending a perilous stalemate, President Barack Obama and congressional leaders announced agreement Sunday night on an emergency deal to avoid to avert the nation's first-ever financial default. The arrangement would cut more than $2 trillion from federal spending over a decade.This is an out and out lie.
The "deal," "cuts" nothing.
That's right, I said it: There will be NO cuts.
What the "deal" does for a short time is reduce the increases scheduled for upcoming budgets.
NO budget will be ANY SMALLER then the budget we have now.
Only in DC and Olympia does a "cut" somehow equate to spending hundreds of billions more then we are spending now.
And the GOP, including that clueless moron representing us in Congress now, will go along with this... this.... abortion.
And now, as we hurtle over the cliff both parties are shoving us over, we have to wonder: what was all the fuss about? After all, we now all know that Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain are the models we're following. Who in their right minds believes for one second that under these conditions, our outcomes will be any different?
This columnist sums it up far better then I ever could:Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them...More:
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
So, thanks to Boehner (Who already came out here for one of her infamous checkbook-only town hall meetings) and the rest of the morons in the House, we caved and blew through the bogus "debt ceiling" like it's not even there. Because, after all, with clowns like this running the show, it ISN'T there.
And now, these same idiots are reminding people of their stupidity, much like the Camas Manikin and her colleagues screwed up handling Reid's scam plan and the payroll tax cut extortion, instead of sticking it out and seeing it through.
And now? Now we get to fork over ANOTHER trillion-plus so Barbie's democrat buddies and Obama can vaporize it and bury us under an even bigger mountain of debt... $16.4 trillion or so.
Thanks for all you've done to screw us, Babs. I'm sure we appreciate it.
(I'll be gone for a couple of hours. Need to get a refill of my Congressional GOP Brand of KY jelly)
