US Senate Democrats: "Senate Minority Leader McConnell Objects To His Own Bill To Lift Debt Ceiling"



If this is about letting the President of the United States, whoever the President is, now or into the. Future given the ability to lift the debt limit on his own, which apparently some Democrats has said that would be a good idea. Then of course I'm against that but if this is about the Senate being able to raise the debt limit with s simple majority. Like under what's called budget reconciliation, if you don't follow the US Senate, legislation generally needs. Sixty votes to pass the Senate, whether Democrats or Republicans are in control, otherwise the minority. Whoever the party is will be able to block the legislation but since the 1974 Congressional Budget Act. The Federal budget can now be passed with just fifty one votes in the Senate, meaning the minority can't block votes. On the budget on their own and apparently Senate Democrats will now like to be able to lift the debt ceiling. With just fifty one votes and since we have a Republican House, that will be good enough and that would prevent. Tax and spend Progressive Democrats from being to lift the debt ceiling on their own, because they want to tax and spend more.

The Hill: Alexander Bolton: Jim DeMint Resigns From Senate

Jim DeMint resigns from Senate - The Hill

Senator Jim DeMint told the Libertarian magazine Reason that the Republican party needs to become more Libertarian. In the future for them to succeed and not press the social issues so much to please the religious right or for their own beliefs. Which tells me he believes the GOP needs to move away from the religious right and perhaps embrace the Ron Paul Libertarians. And keep them in the party and even let them have a voice and yet Senator DeMint is leaving Congress to go to the. Neoconservative Heritage Foundation that pushes some of these Big Government ideas when it comes to social issues. Like a Constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriage, perhaps Senator DeMint wants to move Heritage. Into a more classical Conservative direction on social issues and help move the GOP in that direction, so they can. Bring in new voters, also looks like Jim DeMint needs the money.

ABC News: Video: Good Morning America: Robin Roberts Interviews Raquel Welch, Then and Now


This post was originally posted at FRS Daily Press

Raquel made one interesting point that stood out with me in this interview. And perhaps she made others, but one thing definitely which is really true and perhaps especially in her case, is that men have a tendency with women to not so much listen to what they are saying, but how they say it and watch them say what they are saying. I simply love watching Raquel talk, because she’s still hot and always has been, but then you look at that big baby-face, with those beautiful round eyes and big cheeks and dimples and sweetie pie voice. She just makes guys want to go, awe!

Mariah Carey, speaking of hot baby-faces, has the same effect on me, but they are both interesting as well, so it is not as if I’m not hearing what they say. Raquel is gorgeous baby-face adorable women who still has a great voice and probably still sings very well, but she also has a great personality and is very funny and intelligent. And that is what she also wants the world to see, that even though she’s still a sex symbol and a Hollywood Goddess, that those things aren’t just physical with her, that there is more about her that people should pay attention to.
