My Dear America:
Now Really, What the heck is going on here?
Today is voting day in the United States Senate on a Genuine, Honest to God Bipartisan Budget Bill worked out in negotiations by former Romney Vice Presidential Candidate, Ayn Rand enthusiast and Right Wing Tea Party Republican Congressman from Wisconsin, Paul Ryan, for one.
Paul Ryan. Whaat. When the hell has Paul Ryan been reasonable about anything, never mind the budget?
Paul Ryan's partner in this Bipartisan Budget deal was Washington Senator, Patty Murray, A Democrat who, unlike Paul Ryan, has been no stranger to reasonableness prior to this latest seemingly bipartisan miracle.
Clearly today's vote, if it goes off without a hitch, which it is expected to do, will cut down on the string of Republican Shutdown the Government schemes that have taken place over and over for the past few years.
In addition to this Paul Ryan inspired Pre Christmas Miracle, we have also seen John Boehner, the weak kneed and timid Tea Party shill, who over the past couple of years has never talked against the Tea Party and Tea Party inspired Groups who have seemingly inspired some of the most ridiculous and stupid behavior ever seen on Capitol Hill, respond to the Tea Party claims that they never thought that the Government Shutdown would accomplish anything. Boehners response was:
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
No, JB. They were not kidding you. They were simply making you dance to their tune for the past couple of years so that they could make fools of us all. The rest of us realized early on that the Tea Party was a foolish and hurtful group who did not want to help the United States Government, but instead wanted to cripple or kill it. Certainly this heartless group of Cretins has done their damage primarily to the poor and what is left of the Middle Class Americans who the Tea Party seem to really despise.
Well, now after much of the damage has already been done in Congress we seem to be observing at least two of the most obstructionist members of Congress, Paul and John, realizing after the disastrous U.S. Government shutdown that accomplished nothing and cost the U.S Government an incredible amount of money, that in this election year these Tea Party fools who have claimed to be fiscally conservative have squandered not only American good will but a monetary fortune, as well.
It seems as though Mr. Ryan and Mr. Boehner are recognizing just how foolish they and their Tea Party Comrades were to push things so far. Over 40 votes attempted to repeal Obamacare. What the hell do Republicans have against The American people being allowed to have health care. They have no Republican Plan for Health Care other than "Be Rich and buy your own Rich person's plan."
Republicans are going to recognize over the coming months that they have not only gone too far but that they have gone Way, Way Too Far in pursuit of the repeal of Obamacare. This Congress under the leadership of John Boehner in the House has accomplished less than any congress in recent history.
What a legacy for Boehner, Ryan and the Tea Party Gang. What at least Ryan and Boehner seem to be recognizing is that the average American voter is sick of the Tea Party and their Republican stooges. There will be retribution in 2014 when those voters who have seen their Country and their Congress become nothing short of a madhouse travel to the polls. That Tea Party inspired madness will be coming back to haunt the Republican Party in the fall elections.
Until then we can only hope that other Republicans will follow the lead of Boehner and Ryan and return our government to some modicum of sanity in the pursuit of Democracy.
Welcome back to the real world, Paul and John.
We hope you stay awhile and help us to accomplish maybe a few things other than the Budget Deal before November of 2014 rolls around.
