Comrade Boehner offers 10 lies in support of Omnibus budget bill

UPDATE for individual votes. This is procedural vote only.

Vote Tally Count Omnibus budget bill

Ten things Comrade Boehner wants you to know about his porkulus coming down. But of course the dang website had been down so I guess we don’t get the three days. Here is a taste of what is in the bill, 401K’s next.

PENSIONS:

For the first time, the benefits of current retirees could be severely cut, part of an effort to save some of the nation’s most distressed pension plans. The change would alter 40 years of federal law and could affect millions of workers, many of them part of a shrinking corps of middle-income employees in businesses such as trucking, construction and supermarkets.

Wander over to his page if you want to read his 10 lies. Just Like Obamacare: Boehner’s Omnibus Website Fails, Bill Text Disappears Behind ‘Server Error’

A few short hours after the House GOP posted Speaker John Boehner’s 1,603-page $1.1 trillion omnibus bill text on its website, the website failed.

The bill text—both the PDF and the XML versions—went down around 11 p.m. on Wednesday night, for unspecified reasons. Speaker Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel hasn’t responded to inquiries as to why the bill is no longer available for the public to see.

Instead of the bill being available online, the website reads: “Server Error.”

“401 – Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials,” the website now reads. “You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.”

The Rules Committee website which serves as a gateway to get to the bill text is still up.

From Boehner Gov: (10 point plan)

The House Appropriations Committee has released the FY 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill.  The bill contains a number of important measures to fulfill the people’s priorities, including protecting jobs, stopping wasteful spending, reining in government overreach, and funding our national security. -“

Comments from so called “dummies” over at his website:

Full ObamaCare funding, FULL amnesty funding, and $250 million MORE than Obama wants for the EPA –oh, and a disgraceful cut to housing money for rank-and-file military.

HE GOP “LEADERSHIP” HAS GONE INSANE:

The $1.1 TRILLION dollar “cromnibus” spending bill being RAMMED through the House with Dem votes is a DISASTER…. Not only does it FULLY FUND every aspect of ObamaCare, and FULLY FUND every aspect of Obama’s illegal executive amnesty, it gives the Environmental Protection Agency $250 million MORE than Obama requests…. In short — the bill – just four weeks after a massive, historical Republican election – looks as if DEMOCRATS have huge congressional majorities… It absolutely BOGGLES THE MIND, the level to which Rs are in lockstep with Democrats, who doubtless can’t believe how stupid they are.

Full screed of Mr Boner at Boehner Gov with his 10 point lies.

RINO’s and Dems join in cutting military benefits. Merry Christmas Scrooge

Onward we go with the Omnibus spending bill. Forget that within a month we will control Congress. By all means, let us “do” the NDAA as well and apparently screw the military. Perfect. Here is Hugh Hewitt and his take on it. But first look at the other pork present that the GOP is adding, but of course we cannot be fair to our military.We can only imagine what else we will find out because we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it.

Congress Includes Land Grab Provisions in National Defense Authorization

Some lawmakers negotiated the inclusion of land grab provisions in the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which will expand the already massive federal real state holdings.

The Senate aide told Breitbart News that highlights of the lands provision include:

  • 275,000 acres designated as new Wilderness Areas;
  • A Women’s History Museum;
  • Four new National Parks seven National Park studies for new parks to be;
  • 16 National Heritage extensions;
  • Three new Wild and Scenic River (WSR) designations and three new WSR studies that are expected to become new designations; and
  • Land entitlement for Sealaska, an Alaska Native Regional Corporation

Critics consider those provisions pork because they have nothing to do with defense or national security. The NDAA provides guidance for U.S. defense spending and policy. It is considered a “must-pass” legislation.

The public land provisions are included the text of the NDAA for fiscal 2015 under “TITLE XXX—NATURAL RESOURCES RELATED GENERAL PROVISIONS.”

Back to the military:

“Harry Reid screwed this up all year long and President Obama and now Republicans are going along with the screwing of the military. I do not know why we bother to win elections when we turn around and screw the people we campaign on,” conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt said on his show last night after an interview with Republican Senator Jim Inhofe.

Yesterday the lame-duck Senate released its detailed plan for the National Defense Authorization Act. The legislation cuts the pay raise for the military, imposes caps on basic housing allowance and imposes co-pays on prescription drugs totaling $5 billion in overall cuts.

All of the pay and benefits trims were backed by the Pentagon and White House in an effort to slow the growth of personnel costs. The housing cuts and pharmacy co-pays were the final sticking points for lawmakers, with a compromise reached after nearly a month of behind-the-scenes fights.When asked to explain the reasoning behind the cuts, especially when the federal government funds so much nonsense, the best Inhofe could come up with in the interview was, “We need a bill.” Inhofe sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee

GOP back stabbing with Omnibus spending bill in Lame Duck session of Congress?

A drum beat has been going on with little light of day. The debate? Whether this lame duck session will pass a short-term CR or an Omnibus spending bill that will take funding the government through September of 2015. This would preclude any attempts at reining in the government until then. Why in the world after all of the CR’s would we now not do one for a couple of months and attempt to control this out of control government when we will have both Houses of Congress? Deal with the Immigration issue as a separate issue? Obamacare? EPA?

An omnibus spending package funding the government through next September is expected to hit the House floor next week, House Appropriations Committee spokeswoman Jennifer Hing told The Hill.

Hing said negotiators made significant progress over the Thanksgiving holiday in crafting a full omnibus bill, which would include appropriations for the entire government.

House Republican leaders are pitching a plan that would fund nearly all government agencies through next September except the Department of Homeland Security. DHS – which oversees nearly all immigration operations – would only be funded until March. That vote is likely to come next week, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told lawmakers in a closed-door meeting Tuesday morning. (We know this is not going anywhere and/or is meaningless)

The biggest battle is going on in the choosing of the Senate Chairs. Sessions is fighting for Chair of the Budget Committee. He is key to any hope of the Conservatives stopping the Obama juggernaut whether it be Immigration or Obamacare, EPA, you name it.

Two Republican senators are facing off in a bitter battle for the chairmanship of the Senate Budget Committee, which could turn into a “proxy war” on immigration, Talking Points Memo reported.

In the wake of the GOP taking control of the Senate, Sen. Mike Enzi of Wyoming, a longtime committee member, is seeking to reclaim his seniority over Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the committee’s ranking member.

Oh we now hear the Democratic Senators exclaim how unacceptable it would be not to pass the Omnibus bill. How could the government function really? Truth be told, the Senators for years failed to offer a budget as required by law.

But far worse, are our turn coat GOpers starting to sing the same tune.

Update from Weasel Zippers:

Sessions: House GOP Is Already Close To Breaking Their 2014 Election Promises…

Via National Review:

Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) suggested that House Republicans are on the verge of breaking their campaign promise to fight President Obama’s administrative amnesty, as evidenced by the legislative text currently being circulated.

Sessions said that the proposed language “fails to meet [the] test” established by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who promised earlier this year that the GOP would do everything possible to thwart Obama’s executive orders.
