On Monday afternoon, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz asked for unanimous consent to immediately consider the House Continuing Resolution to fund the government and avoid a shutdown. The legislation would also take steps to avoid a default on government debt while Congress debates a raising of the debt ceiling. Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid was on hand to block the request.
So that settles it then: Harry Reid has decided to shut down government and default on our national debt rather than pass the House CR that would avoid both.
Just keep that in mind in the upcoming storm of bullshit from both the OgabeMedia and the RINOcrats. The House CR would have avoided both, but Harry Reid decided that it’s better to shut down the government and default on our debt than to defund a criminal law that 2/3 of the American people want nothing to do with, that has already cost hundreds of thousands of Americans their jobs and healthcare plans (if you like your plan, fuck you in the ass) and will “necessarily bankrupt” those families who can still even access the plans they used to have.
Yes. Harry Reid Built That™.
And Mitch McCockfluffer and John Cornyn are fine with that. Of course they are. They all made sure that they can keep their Cadillac plans at the taxpayers’ expense while those same taxpayers get to “enjoy” the fruits of a U.S. version of the NHS, so why would they give a flying fuck about the people who voted them into office? Shut up, you stupid voters, and keep paying your taxes.
Monday evening, GOP Minority Leader announced that he would oppose a proposed filibuster from Sens. Cruz and Lee to block the House Continuing Resolution from reaching the Senate floor. McConnell’s opposition was echoed by John Cornyn, number 2 in GOP Leadership, and Sen. Cruz’s colleague from Texas.
Which means that Harry Reid gets to strip defunding out of the House Bill on a simple majority vote, he’ll only need 51 which the Democrat Socialists already have, and send it back to the House where Weepy Boner will surely say “OK, we tried, now we have to destroy healthcare for everybody. Except ourselves. Because fuck you, America.”
Sure, McCockless and Cornyn and the other 4 RINO traitors needed will surely vote against the amendment stripping defunding from the Bill in the Senate, knowing full well that it won’t have the slightest effect now that they’ve helpfully dropped trou and bent over for Harry Reid, removing the filibuster threat for him, and they’ll most definitely claim that that means that they “fought, fought, FOUGHT” so very hard because… Well, that trick worked so well in the past.
Not anymore, you traitor swine, not anymore.
The whole idea was to filibuster the bill until Harry the Scumbag Reid agreed to follow normal Senate rules and require a 60 vote majority to amend the Bill. Which would make it very hard for Dirty Harry to strip the defunding out of there which, again, would leave him with no choice but to put the whole bill up for a vote, unaltered.
But the RINO traitor caucus couldn’t even get on board with that. Because Harry might get mad and stop giving them reach-arounds in the Senate showers.
We guess His Imperial Majesty might as well get started scouting for a primary opponent for John “Traitor” Cornyn in Texas, because he needs to be fired. In the worst possible way. Out of a cannon, if possible.
Swinish parasite traitors. All of you need to die in a fire.
