GOP Establishment Turns On Their Own, Enables More Debt

By Washington Times (DC)

Mitch McconnellCongress approved a massive increase in the federal debt Wednesday, but only after Republican leaders linked arms and jumped together, helping Democrats pass a plan that will let President Obama borrow as much money as needed to cover federal obligations over the next 13 months.

The vote was about as dramatic as they get. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, held out for 40 minutes before casting the key vote to break his fellow Republicans' filibuster. His top lieutenants then followed suit, clearing the way for a final vote to approve the debt ceiling increase.

The bill passed the House on Tuesday. It now goes to Mr. Obama, who is expected to sign it.

Democrats warned of disastrous consequences if the limit hadn't been raised, saying the government would default on its obligations. Analysts said a failure would have been devastating for the stock market, which was closely watching the vote.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, said he hoped the fact that Republicans approved a debt increase would be a breakthrough for other issues.

"Congress should be striding from accomplishment to accomplishment, not staggering from crisis to crisis," he said. "If we spent more time working together and less time running out the clock on procedural hurdles and Republican filibusters, we might actually get things done around here."

But Republicans who opposed the debt limit increase said it marked a low point for Congress and for their party in particular, which could have blocked the increase if the party's lawmakers held together.

"Let's be clear about the motive behind this vote - there are too many members of Congress who think they can fool people and they will forget about it the next week," said Sen. Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican who led the attempted filibuster. "But sometimes, come November, the people remember."

Indeed, in the minutes after the vote, conservative groups blasted out emails criticizing Republicans who enabled the debt increase, Mr. McConnell in particular.

The Kentucky Republican faces a challenge in a party primary this year from Matt Bevin, who said the vote showed the failure of Mr. McConnell's leadership.

Three years ago, after Republicans won major spending cuts attached to the 2011 debt increase, Mr. McConnell said they set a strict standard.

But the latest debt increase comes with no strings attached - the first time that has happened since Republicans won control of the House in the 2010 elections.

The increase lasts until the middle of March 2015, and there is no set limit. Instead, the debt will rise by as much as is needed to cover obligations. Whatever the number is as of March 15, 2015, will become the new legal limit.

As of Monday, the federal debt was $17.259 trillion, where it has been frozen since last month when the previous limit was reached. Federal debt was $10.629 trillion when Mr. Obama took office.

The Treasury Department has said it would run out of maneuvering room on the debt by the end of this month.

Despite the drama Wednesday, the increase in the debt limit was much easier than previous votes - chiefly because Republicans surrendered early in hopes of attaching conditions.

The outcome was assured - the only question was which Republican would have to cast the politically perilous vote. During the hourlong process, Republicans gathered in small groups on the Senate floor to discuss the matter.

Senators said four Republicans were willing to join all 55 Democrats, but that left them one vote shy of the 60 needed to break the filibuster.

Ultimately, Mr. McConnell came to the well of the chamber and cast his vote as the crucial 60th supporter.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the second-ranking Republican, then switched to join Mr. McConnell in opposing the filibuster. He and other allies then went to try to persuade other Republicans to join them in a show of solidarity.

"All right, let's go - come on down," Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican who also switched from "no" to "yes," told his colleagues.

But few followed. The final tally was 67-31. Minutes after breaking the filibuster, the debt increase was approved on a party- line 55-43 vote.

Mr. Corker criticized Mr. Cruz for forcing such a politically dangerous vote.

"Cloture is to end debate. There was no alternative offered. We knew the House could only pass a clean [debt increase], so why do you debate it any longer? It's either a yes-or-no vote," he said.

House Republican leaders passed the debt increase on a 221-201 vote that relied almost entirely on Democrats. Just 28 Republicans voted for it.

The GOP was fractured on the issue, and many were spooked after being blamed for the partial federal government shutdown in October. Democrats were united against any concessions, convinced that Republicans would be blamed for a breach of the debt ceiling.

Republicans said they agreed to the increase to avoid detracting from their message against Obamacare, which they believe will help them regain control of the Senate in November's elections.

"Our focus really continues to be on Obamacare and other issues," said Sen. John McCain, an Arizona Republican who initially supported the filibuster but switched his vote after Mr. McConnell voted. Mr. McCain called Mr. McConnell's vote "a very courageous act," given his tough re-election race.

Mr. McConnell didn't issue any statement about his vote.

Afterward, the Senate wrapped up business and went on recess for 11 days.

    This is why I no longer support the Republican Party. I don’t know what the answer is, but the “establishment” country club RINOs that are currently in control are not getting the job done. We have to stand for something to be effective. Trying to be “democrat lite” is clearly a path to failure.

      In Texas they’re playing the “Reelect John Cornyn to Senate” ad over and over, both on TV and Radio. It touts how he “stands up to president obama every day.” Mr Cornyn thinks he deserves my vote. But I have to ask, if he’s standing up to obama every day and nothing ever changes, why should I, or anyone, vote for him? He’s not effective. I deserve more for my vote.

      We have 273 Republicans in Congress.
      Of those, 43 voted in favor of this debt ceiling increase.
      That was 28 in the House and 15 in the Senate.

      The number of trustworthy Republicans total 199 in the House and 31 in the Senate.

      Looked at from that point of view, 43 weaklings as opposed to 230 stalwarts, there aren’t very many that we need to get rid of to reconstitute a conservative Republican Party.

      Let’s work at getting that done, starting now.

      It is a pretty sad state, when you cannot tell the difference between ***’s, the elephants, and the RINOS in Congress. I feel totally betrayed by the House. The spender-N-Chief has more than doubled our debt, in the time he has been in office, and he is not through yet. He will, since he has been allowed more pocket money, double it again before, and if, he is out of office.

    As one of seven of our area’s Tea Party coordinators, I can promise the GOP establishment, we tea partiers will work to retire all RINOs like Senators McConnell, Cornyn, McCain, Graham, etc.. There is no difference between them and the Democrats, our support will go to candidates like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and a couple of other Tea Party candidates. Senator McConnell lost us when he called us “bullies,” and should have our “nose punched.” We’ll stay home or write in another candidates name before we will vote for any GOP establishment candidate, notice how Karl Rove’s donations have gone fro 370 million to 6.5 million dollars?

      Sometimes I wonder if RINO better describes TEA and “Real” Conservatives more than those it intends to describe. I am beginning to think the “RINO” is truly the party Republican, and we’re only so in name now. I think of myself as a conservative first and despise “partymen” as well as the Demonrat.

      I vividly remember John Cornyn being thought to be the conservative replacement for Kay Bailey Hutchison, the RINO. Now I know that Cornyn is no better. He TALKS conservative but votes with the dem’s. If that’s not enough, he has worked to sabotage the good things Ted Cruz has tried to accomplish.

      Vote for Dwayne Stovall, a true conservative !

      Actually, Cornyn was the replacement for Phil Gramm after he retired. Ted Cruz replaced Kay Bailey Hutchison. That tells me that we are getting more conservative every time. Unfortunately, it took Kay Bailey Hutchison retiring to open up her RINO seat. I thought John Cornyn was going to retire this year. Hopefully the Republicans are able to replace RINOs without having to wait for them to retire.

      BTW, the establishment candidate (David Dewhurst) wasn’t able to beat Ted Cruz in part because the very full primary forced a runoff. I don’t think Cornyn’s primary is as full, perhaps because fewer people want to challenge an incumbent.

      John Cornyn, we are tired of you. I will vote to replace you in the primary.

      “….we tea partiers will work to retire all RINOs ….”

      Instead of working to retire RINOs, why don’t you work to retire Democrats? That is the only way you can help bring back our country to sanity. Don’t waste your time, effort and money on unproductive activities like retiring RINO’s who you hate because they were not true to the conservative principles. If enough Democrats lose their seats, those RINO’s will help keep Obama from further damaging our country. You need to understand that the Tea Party cannot do it alone.

    I am just in shock over this. They’re making no effort at all to get our country turned around. I’m especially upset with my own Senator, John Cornyn. His TV ads keep talking about him standing up to Obama every day. How is this standing up to Obama?

    Who do these politicians think are going to pay for all this? Supposedly this is all going to fall onto the shoulders of the younger generation. But that group can’t find jobs and are mostly living at home still. Plus, they’re going to be forced onto Obamacare eventually. The Millennials have an average income of $6,000 a year. How is that generation supposed to pay for the government, too?

    The Republican Party has to change its symbol from an elephant to the cowardly lion from the Wizard of Oz or to a drooling dog.

    Republicans are not only cowardly but also have been conditioned by the Democrats to produce an automatic response, like in the old Pavlov experiment, in which dogs were conditioned to automatically drool when a bell was rung.

    The Democrats have learned that all they have to do (instead of ringing a bell) is say to the Republicans, “The public will blame you (the media will see to it),” and the conditioned Republicans automatically kneel down and kiss whatever part of the Democrats’ anatomy that is offered to them (drooling would be preferable).

    It’s a difficult decision, but it seems that the cowardly lion would be the better choice to represent the Republican Party.

      Thomas Jefferson and others understood the need for term Limits and the results of politicians remaining in office.
      “A government by representatives elected by the people at short periods was our object, and our maxim… was, ‘where annual election ends, tyranny begins;’ nor have our departures from it been sanctioned by the happiness of their effects.”
      –Thomas Jefferson to S. Adams, 1800.

      Term limits of all elected offices

      My reason for fixing them in office for a term of years rather than for life was that they might have an idea that they were at a certain period to return into the mass of the people and become the governed instead of the governor, which might still keep alive that regard to the public good that otherwise they might perhaps be induced by their independence to forget.” –Thomas Jefferson to E. Pendleton, 1776.
      Mason, “nothing is so essential to the preservation of a Republican government as a periodic rotation”.

      “nothing is so essential to the preservation of a Republican government as a periodic rotation”…. our forefathers believed.
      We are fast losing our Freedom and our republic form of government,”…. “for the people, by the people….”instead of our present government being for the politician, and by the politicians.

    I used to think I could trust donating to the Republican Party to support our values. I am not going to support John Cornyn who campaigns as a “True Conservative” then votes with the left. He is no better than John McCain. I will no longer vote a straight Republican ticket and will only support those candidates that EARN my trust. Thank God for our other senator from the State of Texas – Ted Cruz. Remember the 10th Ammendment to the Constitution “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Therein is the power.

    If you haven’t called cornyn’s office to denounce his vote as yet, you should. He needs to know that he is going to be ousted in the primary and preferably before a primary runoff. All of us Texans must pass the word to our conservative friends to ensure that they are aware of how he is being a traitor to our conservative ideals. I am attending a TEA party gathering tonight in Robertson county that I estimate will have at least 100 folks on hand. By the time they leave the meeting, they will know just how much of a scumbag traitor cornyn is. As far as the election goes, there are quite a few candidates on the republican side. My favorite is Dwayne Stovall after stockman somehow got lost for the better part of a week. The others are not heavyweight enough to put up a challenge to cornyn and I WANT HIM OUT if you get my drift. I will be visiting every TEA party group in central Texas that I can to kill the votes for cornyn and my other loser bill flores, alias chet edwards reincarnated in house district 17 for ya’ll in this area. We must turn out the vote to remove these losers and give stronger conservatives a place at the discussion. If we don’t, our great country is history.

    Hey all you diehard Rs assembled here, how’s that R party workin for ya these days? Guess somehow there’s still a difference tween the two parties huh?

    Question for you: why would a LIV/independent vote for Dem Lite when they can get the real thing?

    Isn’t this about the time when the obligatory comments start flowing in to “vote ‘em all out”…”Impeach Obama” “Get rid of Boehner” blah, blah, blah.

    >> the first time that has happened since Republicans won control of the House in the 2010 elections. <<

    Ah, but don't we wish Republicans won control of the House in 2010? They didn't, they just won the majority of the seats, but it's the Democrats who are in control. Same ol' same ol'. If you're not willing to fight, you lose, and Republicans are not willing to fight. Haven't been since Reagan left the White House. I'm afraid Ronaldus Maximus was the last of the Republican fighters.

    GOP had their last shot during the shut down. They turned on their selves like a pack of wolves and now you see the results, they cannot and will not unite on anything. They had it all in their favor during the shut down as the Obozo regime made mistake after mistake, but Boehner and the gang lost their pucker and would not stand up and fight. There is no difference between the two parties anymore and they are united in the overthrow of this country to push us into one world government. The worst part of it all is how No ***** Boehner will stand up there with his sad puppy dog face and then McConnell letting everyone know he held out for 40 whole minutes to ease his conscience. Two seconds later when the cameras were off they were backslapping and high fiving about how they screwed us all again.

    I say that these so-called “representatives of the people” can full well pool their own salaries and make up that money themselves. With all the perks they vote in for themselves and have taken for themselves over the last decade, they can start scraping their pennies together and making up the difference. We’re all out of $$. We are B-R-O-K-E.

    I hear and see a lot of Bickering between us on here and that we must STOP! We do need to unite in this fight for our country behind a common cause and that is Freedom just as our Founder’s did. Whether the incumbent in your area id Demonrat or Rino they must be fought and pushed out of office as many as possible just as we did in 2010. We the People can do this together. We must fight this Tyranny together or we will all surely hang separately. That is what we truly face Today. We know who the enemy is, now is the time to unite against these enemies of the State. We can talk of Impeachment of this one or that one and it amounts to nothing. Oblammo won’t be Impeached but he can be forcibly removed from office by our remaining Military if they know We are behind them 100% they will act. So let’s show our true support and strength as well by closing ranks and fighting as hard as we can to break the cycle of absolute corruption that has been the status quo in Washington DC and in many State Houses thru out America.

    The RINOs need to make sure we hold the democRATS to what they want. Don’t give them a penny more that what they want….

      That would be funny if it weren’t so sad. And stupid. What the Democrats wanted–and got, was unlimited spending. Don’t give them a penny more than unlimited spending. Yeah, that will teach them. Sad.

    Both parties are led by selfish fools and we should oust them all and demand a balanced budget as every household in America that is on a stable financial base does. Those who get themselves in debt deserve the outcome we , who do not, deserve better. America will become a world power as soon as Obama and his progressive dunces are, ousted. College students have been lied to for decades and are too ignorant to understand they have had their future stolen by those they elect and follow on their paid protests or Obama photo ops.

    It’s time to get these “established” RINOs primaried and put real conservatives up for election.
