Boehner Prepares To Kick The Can Again: “It’s In The Nation’s Interest”

[stextbox id=”x22report”]The can will be kicked down the street once more, they will raise the debt ceiling for the 15th time and it will be business as usual. The government is out of control with spending and they can’t stop, if they stop all programs will cease to function and they are not about to have this happen. The revenue being brought in by taxes is not enough to sustain what the government spends. [/stextbox]

  • While vainly attempting to look like he is still in the driver’s seat, it would appear that John Boehner has once again folded on fiscal conservancy. “It’s clear that we’re not going to have the appropriations bills finished by Sept. 30,” Boehner noted this morning, adding “I believe a continuing resolution for some short period of time would probably be in the nation’s interest.” So it’s for our own good – especially as the Fed is set to Taper – that we keep borrowing and spending. But, Boehner adds after seemingly kicking the can, “the idea of operating for an entire year under a CR is not a good way to do business. And I’ve been working try to find a way to actually do all of these appropriations bills.” Indeed, get back to work, Mr. Boehner.
  • Via Politico,
  • House Speaker John Boehner said Congress should pass a short-term government funding bill in September, but he still wants to finish the eight spending bills that the House hasn’t completed.
  • Congress has struggled to pass spending bills this year, so Boehner’s goal seems a bit lofty to say the least.
  • Most of the government has been operated under a CR since March, but the fiscal fights start anew next month. The government runs out of cash on Sept. 30. Congress leaves town Friday until Sept. 9.

Obama To Meet With Lawmakers On NSA Surveillance

[stextbox id=”x22report”]If the NSA spying was so great and they need to stop terrorist why didn’t they know anything about the Boston Bombing, oh that’s right because they were the ones that caused the false flag.  The spying is to blackmail government officials, judges, spy on investors, patents and people. It is being used to place people into categories and place them on lists to be rounded up during the economic collapse.[/stextbox]

  • President Barack Obama continued to defend the National Security Agency’s widespread surveillance programs behind closed doors to Senate Democrats on Wednesday, but on Thursday he faces a tougher audience.
  • But according to Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), the president was firm in his defense of the programs in their current form.
  • “He was very strong about the fact of keeping America safe and doing it in a way that respects the privacy of Americans,” Cardin told reporters in response to a question from HuffPost. “He felt there’s always ways to improve, but that the knowledge factor of what is being done currently, if most Americans really focused on it, they would want us to do what they’re doing.”
  • Maine Sen. Angus King, an independent who caucuses with Democrats and serves on the Intelligence Committee, said Obama reiterated his call for a “balance” between privacy and national security, but also invoked the Boston Marathon bombings as an example of where data collected by the NSA helped “identify whether there was a great plot.”
