Cries and outrage are still being shouted among fellow conservatives on how Republican congressmen from Georgia, minus the three running for US Senate, and that the Republican leadership have sold out/capitulated/became BFFs with Obama over the budget deal. Of course, this is the first budget that is actually threatening to pass through the US Senate since President Barack Obama took office on January 20, 2009. It’s now December 17, 2013 as of this writing….about daggum time, in my humble opinion.
The federal budget is moving forward in the Senate according to a tip sent to us via the Tipline. The Senate voted on cloture today which passed 67 to 33. Both Senators Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson voted to move forward with the budget. You can see how other members voted over on the US Senate’s website.
