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.

I agree…..but the clock is ticking on entitlement reform…….Also the duplication of agencies effort needs real clean up……

Democrats have no incentive for entitlement reform. They want a social democracy like Canada, Australia, Japan and the EU. Or to put it in other words, once a social democracy is attained, then they will be fine with being Maggie Thatcher and Angela Merkel type fiscal conservatives.

Republicans for their part only pretend to care about entitlement reform when a Democrat is in power to take the political fallout from it.
