I just had the weirdest conversation with my borderline tea party mom.  She said that if ObamaCare was so great, everyone should get it.  I said, "That's how the rest of the world does it."  She replied, "Exactly."

punted to January.  fun.

So, the "surrender caucus" now is up to 87 members.

I'm supposed to rejoice that the elected members of my government have delayed actually making any meaningful decisions to next year at the earliest?

woot?

We need to clear out that Snake Pit in 2014. Especially the Kamikaze Caucus that brought us to the brink.

The Senate passed the measure by a vote of 81 - 18, followed by approval in the House by a vote of 285 - 144.

Actually better numbers than I expected.

I was watching the vote count online. For a brief moment there was one Democrat nay. Then it changed over to yea. I guess there was an error or something.

But I remember thinking, "man, when the internet finds out which Democratic rep voted against this he's going to have torches and pitchforks outside his office."

I get the distinct impression that the only real reason Republicans agreed to this was because they couldn't figure out a way to fark everyone over without putting the blame on the Democrats.

The debt ceiling crisis is like a comic book villain. It will die then come back after a few months.

Now we just relax and wait for the credit agencies to ding our rating again.  Practice your shocked faces.

Anyone have a list of the votes by rep?

All the government did was get a credit limit upgrade from an overly maxed out budget.  Let's see if you can do the same with your credit card companies tomorrow.  Good luck.

Incorrect button presses happen not so infrequently. I'm sure it was that.

You kidding me?

First thing on the table is abolishing the debt ceiling in exchange for delaying or reforming some insignificant part of Obamacare or Social Security

Congress does what it does best(kick the can down the road). Better than default but only by a small margin.

Doubt it'll go this far. The terrorists lost, it'll take a while for them to find a new hostage. The people are wise to their old one.

Compilation from Republicans.

The American people have proven time and again they do not want Obamacare, and thanks to the complete and abject failure of the big government computer system in charge of it, that day when it will be repealed is coming sooner than you think.

See you in a few months libs.

I was told the riots and general chaos would erupt any minute now....

But that was only because there was no new South Park tonight.

2013-10-16 11:15:23 PM
"Hallelujah" or not, there are still an annoying amount of people who still think both sides are at fault here, and that this wasn't a planned coup by the Tea Party and other deep pockets.

This shiat has got to stop. I swear to god if everyone would have just supported the Democratic Party and kicked the right-wingers to the farking curb, we wouldn't have had this, and we'd be in a much better country.

But no HURR DURR BOTH SIDES ARE BAD.

Ah, the infromed opinion of someone who equates the budget of the US government with that of a household.

For me it's a 'the republicans didn't force an absolute tragedy'. It's celebration in the same way you celebrate your plane not crashing after a free-fall. You're super glad for the result regardless of the cause.

Ironic isn't it that after closing our government for 2 weeks the only thing that got shut down was the republicans.
 
2013-10-16 11:15:54 PM
As government reopens at sequestration levels, which was supposed to be a shiat sandwich so bad it forced both sides to come up with a budget, there is a lot of damage.  R&D budgets are farked for the rest of the fiscal year regardless - down probably 20%, which means forget new projects, keep the existing ones on life support and no new hires, fark you young scientists and engineers, wait another year in your grad student or postdoc holding pattern.   Meanwhile stuff will be breaking due to deferred maintenance and it will take months to catch up on program management.  Awesome way to run what is still, barely, the best R&D engine in the world.

At least the CDC website tracking the flu will be up soon.

At least until after mid term elections. Lets not get crazy and vote out any incumbents. I mean, no one has to lose their job over this right?
 
2013-10-16 11:17:13 PM
Wait until all riders in the bill are made public, we'll probably be required to wear our underwear on heads staring tomorrow.
 
2013-10-16 11:17:35 PM
I guess that this CR is better than nothing.  The Dems were much nicer to the Republicans than I would have been.

/see you in February
//Round 2

It could be good to watch the GOP go insane every few weeks during a midterm. Remember when the GOP voted not to extend the SS tax cut going into 2014? Every Democrat I saw pointed that out in advertising.

Now think of the sound bites!
 
2013-10-16 11:17:44 PM
So, the Ceiling's CR is what, 10, 12? I mean, it's a construct.
