Webcast Of House Vote To Temporarily Suspend Debt Ceiling - UPDATE: Bill Adopted

Tyler Durden's picture



The House is now debating the "No Budget, No Pay" Delay-and-Pray bill debt-ceiling-extension and is due to vote around 1230ET. As CSPAN notes, the deal would raise the government's current $16.4 trillion debt limit until May 19. In exchange, the House and Senate must pass a budget resolution by April 15 or place members' salaries in an escrow account until the chamber acts. The bluff-calling continues...

Reps: 200 Yea, 32 Nay, 0 NV

Dems: 85 Yea, 109 Nay, 6 NV

Most of these corrupt a-holes are filthy rich anyway, threatening them with delaying payment of a few grand to them is supposed to make some massive difference?  Ridiculous.  And obviously this thing would be DOA in the Senate to begin with, what's the point?

The Senate Democrats think this is a win for Obama.

I think they will pass it.

Yeah, the collapse will happen. Foreign holders of our treasuries take note. We don't intend to pay you back-- we never did-- unless you count hyperinflated toilet paper. I mean, SHIT! paying you off is much more of a national security risk than not paying you off. You think we're just gonna let you get strong while we get weak? WE DRANK YOU MILKSHAKES STUPIDS.

These clown villains want a fiscal cliffhanger Ver. 2.0 to blame the mid-year market crash on.

With unlimited debt, there is nothing left to blame... except the people. Watch as in the end the blame is pushed on to the commoner. "It was all YOUR fault. You borrowed beyond your means and the banks suffered from YOUR irresponsibility. For the grave injustice YOU did the wonderful system we have erected for YOU... YOU must serve forever repaying YOUR debt, debt slave." Seems like a plausible outcome.

The "No Pay" thing is a complete joke. The paycheck they earn from the House/Senate position is just extra spending money, for the majority of these guys. It's akin to Steve Jobs taking a $1 salary at Apple, when he owned millions in stock options. A feel-good, "See, we're doing something!" measure.

Bitch. bitch, bitch all over the internets - and no one, to my knowledge, is seriously trying to organize a tax protest, which is the only thing that will get the attention of these unremitting cunts.

Good point, and with the exception of those without wages, it is indeed not being done.  I'd hold on to those guns and ammo if I were you, because there may be a new requirement by the fascists in charge to keep the "bread" coming.  Just imagine if those EBT recipients had to "do something" for those benefits.  Think about it.  History is very clear on where this is heading.

Well if you get bored you can put a dab of oleic acid on an ant and watch the other ants try to remove them from the colony.

Dead ants emit it and that's how the others know to remove the bodies.

Nature is so much more fun than the theater.

Can we put some  oleic acid  on the congress critters and see if they get taken out? Just asking.

I may be totally wrong, but I thought ants gave off formic acid when dying.



Pods was right - ants give off oleic acid upon death. They secrete formic acid for attack and defensive purposes. I stand corrected.
