House Budget Proposal Votes Tell an Interesting Truth

On Wednesday, March 28th 2012, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on 3 different budget proposals, all that ended up with the same results of being shot down by huge numbers. One budget proposal went down in flames by an astounding vote of 0-414.  Rick Mulvaney (R-SC) proposed an alternative budget plan based on President Obama’s 2013 budget numbers and it went down in an historic 0-414 vote. Not one vote in support of Obama’s 2013 budget. Mulvaney went on to explain that “The budget that the President offered and that is contained in this amendment never balances,” he said. “It is a balanced approach to reach a never-balancing budget.”

 Thus Obama’s budget proposal is exposed as nothing more than increased government spending under the guise of Obama’s often-used motto stating his desire to a “balanced approach in creating a budget.” And don’t forget the always-included tax hikes present in every Liberal Democrat [balanced] budget proposal of the past 5 years.  Nothing proves these points more emphatically than the Obama-Democrat yearly deficits since 2007, which have averaged over $1 trillion dollars in increased national debt since the year Democrats took over complete control of the U.S. Congress.

The CBC (Congressional Black Caucus) put forth their own pathetic attempt of a  budget proposal also on Wednesday. It went down in flames by a vote of 107-314.  Republicans stated that the CBC budget proposal would spend far more money than the U.S. government has available. No surprise there. Why does the U.S. Congress even have a Black Caucus anyway? There isn’t an Asian caucus, or even a White caucus, even though white people still make up a huge majority of the population today.  With the current race-baiting media circus of the Trayvon Martin tragedy being used by fake Democrats to further divide the nation this week, maybe it’s high time Americans call for the immediate disbanding of the discriminatory CBC.

The third budget proposal voted down in The House on Wednesday was a bi-partisan proposal put forth by Steve LaTourette (R-OH) and Jim Cooper (D-Tenn) that was modeled after many aspects of the Obama-created Bowles-Simpson deficit reduction commission. This proposal too went down in flames 38-382. Instead of responsible governing by enacting solid cuts in big government debt-spending, 382 members of The House have now been exposed as being the main engine of America’s plunge off the Greek-style debt-cliff.

Up next will be the passage of the Paul Ryan House budget proposal 2.0. Chris Chocola breaks down Ryan’s new proposal as follows: (emphasis added)

There’s a lot to like about Paul Ryan’s budget proposal. It cuts some spending. It flattens the tax code down to just two individual marginal tax rates. It also includes some innovative policies designed to halt the unsustainable growth of health care entitlement spending. However, on balance, the budget is disappointing for fiscal conservatives for two main reasons: It waives the spending restraint that was agreed to in last year’s debt limit deal, and it doesn’t balance the budget until 2040. Broken promises and unbalanced budgets as far as the eye can see are neither good policy nor a good campaign rallying cry.

As informed Americans stand on the edge of the Greek-style debt cliff looking out across the debt-laden landscape of their children’s future,when looking at the current budgetary buffoonery of Congress today, they are being left with 2 simple choices: Vote for Obama and the Democrats in 2012 and jump to their deaths right then and there, or vote for Republicans and hop on back of the slow-moving freight train that is on the exact same track of financial disaster as the Obama high-speed train to financial hell and chaos.  One kills you this decade, while the other slowly pushes you off the debt-cliff to the inevitable chaotic collapse of America and the Armageddon that financial insolvency brings with it. Not much of a choice there is it?

 

Desperate Democrats Attempt to Ban Photo ID's at Voting Polls

On Nov. 2nd 2011 Rep. Keith Ellison ( D-Mn) proposed House bill H.R 3316: Current Title:  “To prohibit election officials from requiring individuals to provide photo identification as a condition of obtaining or casting a ballot in an election for Federal office or registering to vote in elections for Federal office, and for other purposes.”

This supposed House Representative in the United States Congress wants to allow anyone to just walk up to the voting polls and vote for the people who run this country without showing a photo ID, thus preventing election officials from actually checking on their eligibility to vote.

Mr. Ellison may as well stand up in Congress and give a speech that expresses his desires to promote the corruption of our electoral system, because that is what this bill and it’s companion bill would do if passed. Among those expressing support for this attempt to open the door to widespread vote fraud in the upcoming elections is further exposed when we see that H.R. 3316 is cosponsored by Reps. Yvette Clarke of New York, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Raul Grijalva of Arizona, impeached corrupt former Federal Judge Alcee Hastings of Florida, Barbara Lee of California, Gwen Moore of Wisconsin and Jose Serrano of New York.

Mr Ellison also had the courage to note that such “fraud” seems to be occurring only within historically Democratic voting blocs like minorities and students. Also of note is the fact that every single one of the above-mentioned co-sponsors for the enable-vote-fraud-to-corrupt-our-elections bills H.R. 3316-17… are Liberal Democrats. [ Add those folks to the list of tyrants who need to be run out of our Congress in 2012, especially if you live in their districts.]

H.R 3316 and 3317, would enable the same widespread vote fraud that we have seen previously, starting in 2006, where we saw the now infamous Minnesota U.S. Senate race won by Democrat Al Franken by a meager 312 votes.

Dan McGrath, of the watchdog group the Minnesota Majority had this to say about the State of Minnesota’s recent explosion of proven voter fraud in just the past 5 years, starting in 2006:  “Never in our state’s history did the words ‘every vote counts’ ring so true. However, a cloud of doubt still hangs over the results. Post-election analysis showed that hundreds of ineligible felons voted in the election.  Over 17,000 more ballots were counted than voters accounted for as having voted in our Statewide Voter Registration System. Over 23,000 addresses provided by Election Day registrants could not be verified. Voter rolls contained the names of non-citizens and deceased individuals,” the organization reported.  Which party benefited from that voter fraud in 2006 in Minnesota? Why Democrats, of course.

Minnesota isn’t the only state that is waging a battle to protect the rights of legal voting U.S. Citizens in trying to ensure that only legal, qualified citizens vote, as Florida has enacted new 2011 voting laws to prevent voter registration fraud and cut off other pathways people have used to corrupt our electoral system recently. Democrats in Florida are now waging a media campaign to spread misinformation about the new voting law, and have even asked the DOJ to nullify it. Why would anyone object to laws that protect the integrity of our electoral system? Simply put, Democrats are desperate to remain in power in 2012, and will do anything they can to enable non-qualified voters to vote for their party, including felons, illegal immigrants and even dead people, as they have been proven to have done more frequently in the past 5 years.

Rep. Ellison give a wide range of what I find to be ridiculous reasons for trying to get his H.R. 3316 bill through Congress.  Just as they are attempting to do in Florida, Ellison claims his bill is designed to stop “voter suppression.” Yes, Mr. Ellison Voter ID laws are in fact, designed to suppress voters. They are designed to suppress dead people, illegal immigrants, non-U. S. Citizens, and various other forms of non-qualified people from voting in America.  I quote Mr. Ellison to make his intentions perfectly clear: “The Same Day Registration Act would require states to provide for same day voter registration for a federal election. The Voter Access Protection Act would make sure election officials cannot require photo identification in order to cast a vote or register to vote,” he said.

Mr. Ellison has also proposed another companion bill to H.R. 3316 – H.R. 3317,  “To amend the Help America Vote Act of 2002 to require States to provide for same day registration.That bill is simply designed to promote voter registration fraud, as it does not give election officials time to properly check the voters eligibility to vote on voting day.  Past Democratic “Get Out the Vote” campaigns relied heavily on with-holding thousands of  new registrations until the last possible minute, preventing election officials a chance to properly qualify the newly registered voters and make sure they meet the State’s eligibility requirements. That is the reason Democrats are demanding that a voter be allowed to walk up to the polls on election day and cast their votes without proving their eligibility. No ID required.

With Republicans holding a majority in the House of Representatives today, will these vote-fraud enabling bills, H.R.3316, and 3317 ever see the light of day? There have seen numerous occurrences where Congress combines several bills into one, refuses to read the bills and amendments completely, and then passes them into law, leaving the public to suffer the consequences. Did you catch that last statement,  GOP and Speaker of the House, John Boehner?

Americans need to have confidence in their electoral system and H.R. 3316-17 would destroy that confidence.  Desperate Democrats are attempting to corrupt our electoral system under the guise of preventing “voter suppression” that simply does not exist today.  This points directly towards the fact that, as we head into the 2012 elections big debt-spending Liberal Democrats know their days are numbered, and will do anything to deny American citizens a fair set of elections in 2012 in an attempt to remain in power.

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!
