Do not be fooled by the Republican or White House spin that this budget agreement is anything but a total retreat and surrender to the MINORITY party – the Democrats. But hey – fighting is hard. It’s just easier to capitulate.
I was originally going to express it as a Republican give-away – but it isn’t. You see – you have to first possess something in order to give it away – like one’s principle or integrity. The Republicans possess neither.
On his radio show, an angry Mark Levin exclaimed that the Dems passed all of ObamaCare with a simply majority under reconciliation. Mark rhetorically asked how it is that Democrats seem to always know how to play the rules in the House and Senate – use parliamentary rules and procedures to advance their agenda – to get things done, and the Republicans don’t seem to. Is the GOP just not as smart as Schumer, Pelosi and the rest of the Mensa honorees in the Democrat Party?
Of course not. The Democrats, for the most part, are believers. No – they don’t really believe in standing up and fighting for the less fortunate. They believe in the leftist ideal of big government authoritarian control and spending. In other words, they are statists. Of course they would never describe it as such, but this is what it boils down to.
They seem to always get they want because they don’t compromise. And even if they appear to compromise, as in giving the President an additional $15 billion in defense spending and unpinning it from domestic matching, it’s barely a compromise.
