US Senate Makes Wrong Decision
By: Rebecca Figone
Well, it looks like the Senate did exactly what any liberal dominated law making body would do. They opted for more spending, instead of a solution.
More from this link at the Christian Post.
“The House Republican’s “Cut, Cap and Balance” bill is “now over, done and dead,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said after the Senate voted 51-46 along party lines to “table,” or halt further debate, on the bill.
Cut, Cap and Balance would have cut fiscal year 2012 spending by $111 billion and capped future spending at 18 percent of GDP. It also would have required that both chambers propose a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution before the nation’s debt ceiling could be raised.
Cut, Cap and Balance passed the House on Tuesday with 234 Republicans voting in favor of the bill and 190 Democrats opposing the measure.”
So, essentially the House was willing to do the right thing for the American People, and the Senate just flatly rejected that. The Senate instead will opt for one of the other band-aid fixes that will simply put off until later what it would have been ultimately wiser to have dealt with now.
