    All That Was Missing From Thursday's GOP Debt Limit Demands Was a 'Birther Bill'

    White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that he was surprised House Republicans didn't throw birthers a bone in their list of demands on the debt limit.

    “The only thing I didn’t see was a birther bill attached to it," Carney quipped during the White House press briefing.

    GOP leadership in the House drafted a proposal that surfaced Thursday to lift the debt ceiling through December 2014 in exchange for several conservative goodies, such as a one-year delay for the Affordable Care Act and approval of the Keystone pipeline.

    Christmas is coming early for House Republicans.

    A draft of the GOP leadership's proposal to lift the debt ceiling through December 2014 is circulating and it's the equivalent of a letter to Santa for the party's base.

    The bill tacks on items including a one-year delay of Obamacare; tax reform in the image of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI); approval of the Keystone pipeline; expanded offshore drilling and other pro-oil and coal energy reforms; increases in military spending coupled with deeper cuts to domestic programs; repealing a fund in the financial regulatory reform bill; means testing for Medicare; repealing the Obamacare prevention and public health fund and medical malpractice reform.

    Birthers? Really? 2009 called, they want their lame talking points back....

     "Santa for the party's base"

    No, just sane limitations on Santa Claus Obama's 5 year endless gift giving to his public sector cronies...and limits on runaway entitlements, which the Dems will never address until the country is sucked dry.

    CLC,

    The bill, which was obtained by the National Review....that bastion of liberalism...is insane.

    It is not just Ted Cruz who has flipped his lid...but apparently the entire GOP leadership.

    For merely lifting the debt ceiling thru December 2014... something the GOP is going to have to do anyway...they want all the above and more.

    Second thought...to say this is Xmas come early is quite the understatement. Too bad the GOP do not have a chance in h**l in getting their ridiculous bill passed. As Santa would say, "Ho,Ho,Ho!".

    Obama has stated repeatedly, now, and over the past five years, he will not negotiate.

    The argument over the debt limit by the left is just silly. The bill funds the government, save Obamacare, a bill so flawed that even the president is breaking it weekly.  For the Democrats to stand their ground on something this flawed is blindly authoritarian, maybe dictitorial.

    skeeter,

    All due respect, Obama came in as the President of the entire United States. He constantly reached across to act in a bi-partisan fashion to the point his own party criticized him.

    In the case of Obamacare, he was roundly criticized for backing off from a single-payer system by his party...for caving.

    How can Obama be painted as dictitorial when from the very beginning he has been up against the most intransient GOP in history? 

    As for the argument over the debt limit bill proposed by the GOP being just plain silly...really skeeter.

    The GOP has asked for everything in the world they want but the proverbial kitchen sink all for moving the debt limit to December 2014th. What a deal!!!

    It is beyond ridiculous as well as irreponsible...just as irresponsible as trying to hold the government hostage unless Obamacare is repealed.

    A good example is ACA. Not one Republican voted for it. When they had that meeting McCain was told by Obama to basically shut u p I won the election. No one knew what was in the bill. THe Dems skirted the rules to get it passed.

    The only time Obama reaches across the aisle is to our adversaries in foreign policy like the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

    On the day 12 people got mowed down at the Navy Yard in Washington Obama spent nearly an hour demonizing Republicans.  

    Reaching across the aisle??? A fantasy on the part of Obama a55ki55ers

    With all due respect:

    Really?  You are going to claim Obama started out bi-partisan? that's just silly.  First meeting with the "loyal opposition" Obama framed the argument as "I won, you lost, we are doing it my way".

    He said that to John Kyl

    He said that to John McCain

    It has been reported that he said that to other Republicans behind closed doors.

    And, that was only the first week of his Presidency.

    Obama has been a hyperpartisan from the get-go, which, if that's how he wants to be, go ahaead.  But saying he started off reaching across the aisle, that's just silly.  the record show that the only reason he would meet with Republicans at all was to insult them or remind the that he won.

    So, not that I hold the republicans clean on partisanship, Obama has done as much if not more partisan nonsense from the start.

    So, the running excuse/theory/line of bull is that Obama said something GOPers didn't like, and that is their justification for opposing every single agenda item or bill even remotely favored by POTUS...?

    And that's why congressional GOPers are trying to sabotage the ACA, privatize medicare, cut food stamps, eliminate clean air provisions, bomb Iran, ban gay marriage and force their own agenda to supercede that of the democratically elected president and senate...?

    Really?!?

    OK we all know that ACA moves forward and the GOP is just highlighting that they tried to fix the mess.  As ACA rolls out next year it goes one of two ways; the majority embrace it (not according to today's polls) or the majority grow more disenfranchised by it.

    If the latter is the case; then the GOP keeps its contol of the House and most likely get control of the Senate and possibly a super-majority like the Dems had in 2008.  Well in the world of turnabout is fair play a number of perceived wrongs will be righted including ACA and these bills will be rammed thru Congress as the Dems scream bloody murder.

    The US government has forgotten how to compromise and the Dems failure to see this, most likley will lead to the GOP getting control until the cycle shifts again, as the parties fight for the steering wheel.  Gone are the days of the President and Congress getting along, talking and compromising like Reagan and Tip O'Neil.

    These GOP Tea Party House representatives are beholden to an electorate that is more psychotic than can even be imagined. This electorate truly has no clue about civics, history, economics and the basics of how advanced industrial economies prosper......and they like it that way.

    So, the running excuse/theory/line of bull is that Obama said something GOPers didn't like, and that is their justification for opposing every single agenda item or bill even remotely favored by POTUS...?

    And that's why congressional GOPers are trying to sabotage the ACA, privatize medicare, cut food stamps, eliminate clean air provisions, bomb Iran, ban gay marriage and force their own agenda to supercede that of the democratically elected president and senate...?

    Really?!?

     

    What color are the unicorns in that universe...?

    OK we all know that ACA moves forward and the GOP is just highlighting that they tried to fix the mess.  As ACA rolls out next year it goes one of two ways; the majority embrace it (not according to today's polls) or the majority grow more disenfranchised by it.

    The US government has forgotten how to compromise and the Dems failure to see this, most likley will lead to the GOP getting control until the cycle shifts again, as the parties fight for the steering wheel.  Gone are the days of the President and Congress getting along, talking and compromising like Reagan and Tip O'Neil.

    Their attempt to "fix the mess" entails repealing the entire law and replacing it with...nothing, except medicare vouchers.

    Agree on the lack of compromise, but suffice to say efforts to repeal the the law in its entirety are quite the opposite of "compromise".  Dems are at least willing to amend the law as needed to make it work; GOPers won't even agree to that simple rationalization and insist on throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

    The opposition is looking at a few dents and a broken headlight and saying, "Nope. It's totaled. Get a whole new one."  Absurd.

    Re: All That Was Missing From Thursday's GOP Debt Limit Demands Was a 'Birther Bill'

    In response to UserName9's comment:

    These GOP Tea Party House representatives are beholden to an electorate that is more psychotic than can even be imagined. This electorate truly has no clue about civics, history, economics and the basics of how advanced industrial economies prosper......and they like it that way.



    Even worse, they're as guilty of ignoring their constituent minorities as they accuse the dems to be.

    That's hypocrisy.
