    southbeach1500 saidScrew the unemployed? I don't think so.

    He was trying to draw attention to the fact that a few weeks ago Congress passed "pay-go" legislation which basically means that any new spending must be paid for.... no borrowing, it has to be paid for.

    The extension of the unemployment benefits (approx $10B) would have been "paid for" (not!) by borrowing.

    So dig a little deeper beyond the headlines before putting a label on someone next time. icon_wink.gif



    Exactly! But, don't hold your breath for some of these "finger pointing crazed" types who just want to blame the Republicans for everything under the sun rather than dig deeper than the headlines.

    Funny we didnt have to pay as you go when the Bush administration was screaming that we had to bail out the banks and financial institutions...oh no, then it was the bum's rush...had to do it within a week!

    How very BRAVE of Bunning to draw attention to it AT THE END OF THE EXTENSION. How brave indeed. And now he is trying to haggle out a deal (just as he vehemently opposed during the healthcare debate) to get him to vote in favor.

    If "haggling out a deal" means that he is going to force congress to figure out how they will pay for something BEFORE they pass it, then good for him.

    That should have been done BEFORE the subsidy for COBRA and the unemployment benefits ended. NOT the day of. Justify it all you want. BLAH BLAH BLAH....It still wreaks while he is doing it just as it wreaked when it was being done during healthcare debate.

    It bears repeating that Bunning voted for every war spending bill during the Bush administration. You know, the ones that not only weren't paid for, but were being spent as tax cuts went to the wealthiest 1% of Americans. He also voted for medicare part D (unfunded), No Child Left Behind (unfunded), and every other spending bill BushCo dreamed up.

    He didn't suddenly grow a conscience.

    My view is the Bunning is trying to put the screws to Mitch McConnell because he was told not to run again, and he fucked over millions of Americans in the process.

    PS: Meanwhile none of you commented on how hot the Dem candidate is. Me-ow. icon_smile.gif

    I can barely even watch these political campaign videos anymore. They all sound the same, with the very same talking points -- "we need to create jobs" blah blah blah..."curtail spending" blah blah blah..."lower health care costs" blah blah blah..."bring fresh ideas" blah blah blah...yet we never hear a single "fresh" idea from any of them.

    This is the GOP talking point of the day. Glad it's made it to Real Jock.

    The flaw in this argument is Bunning voted AGAINST pay as you go. And suddenly he's for it?

    Please.

    Well, the Republican point of view has been that if you lose your job it's because God hates you for:
    a) being a faggot
    b) being a liberal
    c) being a n***** loving Obama voter
    or
    d) being a faggot liberal n***** loving Obama voter.

    And if you're unhappy with what God has dealt you, then you're against God and probably an unAmerican pinko commie socialist vegetarian too.

    'This is the GOP talking point of the day. Glad it's made it to Real Jock.'

    You can always count on SouthBeach to deliver the GOP talking point of the day. Coincidence?

    But if you want to read the talking points from the source, visit RedState.com. It is the site where the Republican politicos go to prove their far-right cred.

    And if you have any doubt that the Republican Right would like to see gays eliminated, BY ANY MEANS POSSIBLE, read this site on a regular basis. The same innocent sounding Republican leaders, reveal their inner hatemonger, when they're blogging amongst their own. Read RedState.com for a real wakeup call.

    Honestly, some of you really do need to get a grip. Surely you don't give that much credence to one web site? Redstate.com no more represents all Republicans than RealJock represents all gays.

    No sweet cheeks .... It is THOU who needs to dig a little deeper
    The extension of unemployment benefits is Emergency legislation and not classified under Pay-go
    He has all the republicans mad at him too over this

    The vote came after Bunning's fellow Republicans began to air their own concerns about how the Senate blockade had the potential to damage their political brand while also having a direct impact on their constituents.

    He was perfectly fine with the last jobs bill that was filled with pork for his own state
    Hmmm .... I wonder why he SUDDENLY got fiscally conservative all of a sudden
    What an ass icon_rolleyes.gif

    GEE, there wasn't a peep out of him during all the years he and his Republican buddies were piling BILLIONS of dollars in pork on every bill that passed through Congress. Now, all of a sudden, as he's headed out the door, he's become magically fiscally responsible ? Give me a break ! Of course, the Democrats pile on the pork, too, but this Republican goon takes the prize for hypocrisy.

    Yes, and if you just dig a teeny weeny deeper into the BIG PICTURE, you will see that this asshole, along with every single Republican had no problem with spending on borrowed money between 2001 and 2006!! Where's the integrity in that? That's what the story is really about!

    I, for one, and I'm sure many Americans would rather borrow money to keep Americans employed than they would at throwing money at a money pit called the Iraq War. And that's just one suspect issue under the Republican belt.

    I would also believe this latest Republican claim of fiscal conservatism if Republicans were campaigning against all these Republican officeholders who did the same spending under the Bush Administration. But it's not really about that, is it? That's why there is no campaign to remove all these Republican spenders, is there? It's all about power.

    You're the one who needs to dig deeper. Educate yourself before you let your fingers do the talking, okay?

    You identify yourself as an Independent, but comments from you like the ones found in this thread convince me otherwise.

    I thank God you're not a breeder, but I don't want to claim you as part of my team, either. You're a walking enigma.

    So Republicans in Congress think --

    Debt that: fuels war & kills people, gives tax cuts to rich people and enriches corporations = good debt

    AND

    Debt that: helps people navigate difficult personal circumstances, and gain access to affordable health care = bad debt.

    Got it. Thanks!

    Which is exactly why we need to vote against every incumbent up for election in our districts in the coming House and Senate races.


    But we already know that's not going to happen, at least on the Republican side.

    I was waiting for that one. And I know he was expecting my regular reply: that's a Republican-endorsed idea that is expected to hurt Democrats much more than Republicans, in the current political climate. In fact, Republicans are hoping it will even aid them in their bid to regain control of Congress. Despite the Repubs being the real authors of this country's problems, both during the previous administration, and in preventing this current administration from fixing them.

    So the bums yell "throw the bums out" since unsophisticated and easily-manipulated US voters will reflexively blame the incumbent party in power, without checking the facts and placing the blame where it belongs. And look who keeps repeating the call -- surprise! I hope no one here is so gullible as to believe that double-speak.

    And yeah, Conway's a hottie. Sorry I don't still live in Kentucky so I could vote for him.
