Senate Debt Deal Weakens Congress on Debt Ceiling

Capitol Hill talk regarding the Senate deal apparently includes a provision that would take away the Congress’ power to increase the debt ceiling. According to Politico, it looks like the buzz appears to be true.:

The plan includes a proposal offered by McConnell in the 2011 debt ceiling crisis that allows Congress to disapprove of the debt ceiling increase, which means lawmakers will formally vote on whether to reject a debt ceiling increase until Feb. 7. Obama can veto that legislation if it passes. If Congress fails as expected to gather a two-thirds majority to override the veto, the debt ceiling would be raised. More at  Breitbart

The vote, 81-19, approved an agreement negotiated by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). It ends a political standoff that shut down federal programs for 16 days and led to the furlough of hundreds of thousands of federal workers.

    Hey, we got away cheap; $2 billion, a mere bag of shells. Meanwhile in the bill the dead not only vote but bleed the taxpayers from beyond the grave. The wife of the late Senator (D- NJ) Frank Lautenberg’s multi millionaire wife was granted a $174,000 bereavement ward. Not bad. Viva New Jersey!!!

      I am sure by tomorrow there will be more we find out. Yet nothing is being covered on this. Looks like we wont have to worry about raising the debt anymore according to politico. Sickening, totally.


      • Petermc3 Says:

        We will have to read the bill in order to find out what’s in it. This shall be congress’ mantra from here on out.

    Senator Inhofe from Oklahoma would have been a no vote, had he been in Washington. He has been sidelined with a heart condition.


    • bunkerville Says:

      Sorry to hear. Slowly we are learning what is in the bill. Media not reporting anything on this.
