    Default A True American Hero!!!!

    John Boehner Closes the Deal to Avoid Government Shutdown!!

    JOHN BRESNAHAN & JAKE SHERMAN | 4/9/11 2:35 AM EDT
    They gathered in HC-5 all week talking — sometimes complaining loudly — about where the party was headed in the budget crisis. Many said House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) didn’t share enough information. Others were peeved he wasn’t pushing for deep enough cuts. Some were ready for a government shutdown.

    And on Friday night, Boehner himself was unsure what would happen. Halfway through a closed-door meeting of House Republicans, an aide approached Boehner, slipped him a piece a paper, which he read and quickly pocketed.

    He then stepped to the podium, and announced what everyone had been waiting for.

    “We have a deal,” the Ohio Republican said around 10:30 p.m.

    And with that, Boehner had something more — a defining moment in his speakership and a chance to set aside questions about his ability to manage an unwieldy caucus of conservatives, at least for now.

    The 61-year-old, swept into the speaker’s chair during last November’s GOP landslide, faced down two Democrats — Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) — and answered doubts from the conservative movement about whether he was a true believer.

    His colleagues stood and cheered at his announcement of a deal, knowing Boehner secured more than $38.5 billion in cuts, a far higher figure than many of them expected just days before. Boehner still has to get the votes next week for the long-term budget deal, and he’s got a huge sales job ahead on raising the debt limit, not to mention debating the entire 2012 budget.

    “It’s a big deal. It shows a great deal of leadership,” said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.), a Boehner ally. “It’s a big win for the speaker.”

    In a larger sense, Boehner has achieved more than just a short-term budget victory — in his first three months as speaker, he’s helped turn the entire Washington dialogue into a debate about the size and scope of government. He started the year by getting rid of earmarks, he’s pushing through some of the deepest spending cuts in American history, and he’ll now try to get most of the GOP Conference on board with Rep. Paul Ryan’s fiscal 2012 budget — one of the most audacious long-term spending plans in recent memory.

    All this came together from a politician who was kicked out of leadership 12 years ago and came to the speaker’s job with serious question marks from the right about how he would go about dealmaking with a Democratic president while corralling the 87-strong group of GOP freshmen

    If the Republicans had not tried to put their abortion agenda ahead of agreeing on a budget there would have been an agreement long before just minutes before midnight and almost shutting down the government.

    As far as your other "big victory" in Wisconsin Prosser was supposed to have won in a landslide. That didn't happen did it????????????

    MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin voters sent Republican Gov. Scott Walker a clear message about their unhappiness with his muscling through a law restricting union rights by sending a once runaway state Supreme Court race toward a near-certain recount and filling the governor's former post with a Democrat.

    "This continues to add fuel to the tremendous fire of enthusiasm and passion to recall the Republican senators that support Scott Walker's backwards priorities for the state," Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate said of the election results.

    Justice David Prosser won a nonpartisan, four-way primary with 55 percent of the vote. The general election was expected to be a runaway after second-place finisher JoAnne Kloppenburg got half as many votes.
    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110406/...court_election

    Even though Kloppenburg lost the election, the people of Wisconsin have shown their displeasure with Governor Walker through the number of votes Kloppenburg received. So go ahead and strut your stuff, Prosser was supposed to win by a landslide and almost lost the election. Gave you a scare on Wednsday though didn't it.

    What part of Prosser was supposed to win by a landslide don't you understand??????????? He almost lost the election. The people of Wisconsin have spoken. They do not agree with what Walker is trying to do there. Walker won the Governor's election by just 52% of the vote not a big margin was it. Now 60% of the people do not like the job he is doing there. If the election was held again it is very doubtful he would win. He will never be a 2 term Governor. If 60% of the people do not like him after 2 months in office he will be less popular than Bush if he last 4 years without being recalled.

    Rasmussen Poll: Almost Six In Ten Wisconsin Voters Disapprove Of Gov. Walker

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's efforts to strip public employee unions of most of their collective bargaining rights appears to be so unpopular, that a Rasmussen poll now finds that almost 60% of likely Wisconsin voters disapprove of his job performance.
    That finding shows just how quickly Walker -- who was elected to his first term last November with 52% of the vote -- has sunk just in his first two months in office. And it comes one day after Rasmussen released results from the same poll, all of which showed public opinion firmly on the side of the unions in the labor rights battle that has deadlocked the state capitol for the past few weeks.

    Ok little RK. I still say the people of Wisconsin spoke because she was supposed to lose by a landslide and almost won the election. I hope the American people take notice of what is happening in Wisconsin. 60% of the people of Wisconsin are now against Walker. He would not win an election if it were reheld today. He will not win a 2nd term and will probably be recalled once he has a year in office when it is legal to do so.

    Good Lord....I am far to often suprised that no one points out the obvious sooner to some of the members here....sometimes I just enjoy sitting back and reading this stuff...

    Roger....

    Had your Liberal CONTROLLED CONGRESS, SENATE, and PRESIDENCY not passed the buck on down the road WAY WAY WAY WAY back when we would have had a budget done.....how did you say it...."long before just minutes before midnight and almost shutting down the government."

    You can cite any source you want but the FACT is they missed the boat and screwed that one up...THEY LOST THE HOUSE...it wasnt the Republican attempts to defund Planned Parenthood that held up a budget. It was the fact that the Liberals didn't do what they should have and pass a budget for this physical year, and now they have to pay the price...

    2012-13 physical year budget is gonna be a GOOD ONE.

    CUT THAT SPENDING!!!!!!

    Game set match.....

    Am I reading this correctly? That Boehner supports raising the debt limit?
    That has to be a typo, right?

    The GOP might have a small victory here but, by adding abortion to the debate they will lose the war in 2012. How stupid could they be? They had the Dems beat over the economy, budget and deficit yet they just couldn't help themselves, they had to throw abortion into the debate. This isssue will rally the hardcore dems and moderates. There aren't enough anti-abortion votes to get the GOP within miles of the White House!

    Bring on the Libetarians, they are the only ones serious about the budget and deficit. Ryan budget plan still leaves us with an estimated 10 TRILLION deficit while Paul's budget plan eliminates it in 5 to 6 years. Plus. unlike the GOP, the Libetarians are against big brother government!
