Let’s #Compromise!

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/11/10

Now that Republicans have won, the Democrats are no longer saying “we won” but have switched to that all-familiar refrain of theirs when they lose: let’s compromise! I agree. Let’s compromise. To compromise, both sides need to give up something they want to get something else they want.

Let’s start the compromising by forcing the Democrats to finally live up to their past agreements.

For the Reagan 100 billion dollar tax hike, the Democrats must now provide the 300 billion dollars of non-defense budget cuts (in 1986 value dollars).

For the George Herbert Walker Bush tax hike, the Democrats must now provide the agreed upon non-defense budget cuts (in 1990 value dollars).

For the Reagan amnesty, the Democrats must now secure the southern border.

Once the above 3 compromises are finally met, we can talk… about other compromises the Democrats have not yet followed through on. There should be no further offers of compromise until the Democrats actually follow through on old promises they made and, to this point, welched on.

820

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/07/30

days since the Democrats in Congress tried to pass a Budget. That’s 2 years plus an additional 90 days. The American people (yes, Harry Reid, they are indeed Americans) voted the Republican Party into majority in the House of Representatives in the November 2010 elections. After the Republicans were seated in January, they promptly went to work and passed a Budget in order to follow the Law since the Democrats before them were unwilling to obey the Law that requires a Budget. Then the Democrat Senator Harry Reid sat on his hands, declaring he is not even interested in doing a Budget, despite the Law requiring it.

The debt ceiling is being hit. The Republican House, after passing the Budget that the Senate is still sitting on, passed the Cut, Cap and Balance + Balanced Budget Amendment debt ceiling raiser. Harry Reid’s Democrat Senate is sitting on it, refusing to even have a vote.

The Republican House passed a revised “compromise” (how do you compromise when you’re the only position at hand?) John Boehner debt ceiling raising bill since the Harry Reid Democrat Senate refused to act on CCB+BBA. Democrat Harry Reid promptly sat on the Boehner Bill (after all 51 Democrats and 2 Independents who caucus with the Democrats signed a letter declaring the Boehner Bill dead before it even got out of the House).

Socialist Democrat Barack Obama has never once provided any plan to cut spending and raise the debt ceiling, while at the same time demanding Republicans compromise with him.

While Republicans are busily offering plans, Democrats are busily obstructing and flinging poo from the sidelines as they refuse to enter the field of battle.

Back to those 820 days since the Democrats in Congress bothered to obey the law by passing a Budget: The most recent Continuing Resolution to keep the Federal government funded through the rest of Fiscal Year 2011 will expire in October, meaning we’re going to keep talking about the Budget in September and beyond. The Republican House will pass a FY2012 Budget. The Democrat Senate will sit on it. And a new round of battles over yet another Continuing Resolution to keep the Federal Government funded due to the intransigence of the Democrats in Congress will ensue.

All four Barack Obama years will be years of over 1,000,000,000,000 dollar deficits and only one of the four Obama years will see an actual Budget, that being the 2009 year — despite the Law requiring a Budget.

Yes, it is the Democrats who are fiscally irresponsible. Yes, it is the Democrats who are in violation of the Law. Yes, it is the Democrats who are obstructionist. Yes, it is the Democrats who keep saying “no”: No to obeying the Law requiring a Budget; no to presenting a Budget; no to presenting a deficit reduction plan to raise the debt ceiling; no to compromising with Republicans.

I can see 2012 from my window.
