Senator Reid's Debt Ceiling vote watch
The senate will be starting the final push somewhere around 2 P.M. today.

The standoff isn't over, folks, and I expect that the Republicans and the Tea Party hobbits, after forcing the Democrats to wait until 1:00 A.M. Sunday morning to bring forth the Reid plan, will fillibuster the bill until the wee hours of the morning.

Just to aggravate, just to bring this bill to a vote on the floor while most Americans are fast asleep.

Just because they can.

In Reid's bill is a provision to completely change the tax code.

This is going to be very interesting.

Fuck reid. He belongs in jail for 10 life terms...or even more fitting, Death sentence for treason.

He is just a corrupt cartel player trying to escape justice, as are 85% of the rest of the "representatives".

DONT BE SHEEP

I am going to remove any post which is just a personal attack.

This is a serious issue, and given the fact that Boehner can't get a bill passed, Reid's bill is almost the last resort.

Keep the posts to the subject, please!

10:57am | Boehner calls Reid bill "dead on arrival" in the House:
From Speaker of the House John Boehner's blog:

"Today the House of Representatives will bring up – and defeat – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s debt limit legislation. This vote will demonstrate that the Reid bill cannot pass the House. This will also expose any Senate vote on the Reid bill as a pointless political exercise that squanders precious time as the specter of a job-crushing default looms."

Of course, A.C.1488275, Boehner is going to do this.

It's called tit for tat.

Our congresscritters display the temperment and personalities of 1st grade children out of countrol.
