This is how it happens.And in two days, actually less than 48 hours, on the same day as the selection of a new Speaker, the American people are saddled with a burdensome two-year budget that works towards increased debt on our heads and future generations. Besides those RINOs in the House, you've got these GOP Senators to thank for it...
Last night while you were sleeping the Senate voted to steal $150 billion dollars from the Social Security Trust Fund. I joined 34 of my colleagues in a vote to prevent this raid. I would like to thank Senator Rand Paul for leading the fight to protect to Social Security from the thieves in Washington, who seem to think that if they steal from the American people at night while they are sleeping that they will get away with it. I was proud to vote with Senator Paul on his point of order that would have protected Social Security, and I ask you to help me shine a light on what Washington has tried to hide from you in the darkness of night.
If everyone who sees this message shares it, it will reach millions of Americans. As someone who has been fighting for years to reform our broken government in Washington, I know it is exhausting, I sympathize with your frustration, and I understand your impatience. But don't give up. Washington wants you to give up.
Just remember, a vote to raid social security in the middle of the night in a desperate attempt to perpetuate an unsustainable spending addiction isn't a sign of strength. It is a sign of weakness.
~ Sen. Mike Lee
Politistick: “Obama’s Mitch” McConnell and seventeen of his fellow RINO squish Surrender Caucus members gave Obama an early Christmas present early Friday morning, while American citizens, already shouldering an almost $19 trillion in debt — excluding trillions more in unfunded liabilities — received a trick not a treat.Yes, they need to be, but will the American people hold them accountable? We've got to get rid of this 'not my representative' and 'not my senator' attitude. If they're bad, can'em! The opportunity was there last year to rid the halls of Washington from more than a few of these quislings, but they were ushered back into office. It's time for some tough love and a one-way ticket back home, America; otherwise, they'll continue to rob us blind.
Passed by a 64-35 vote in the U.S. Senate, the budget deal would eliminate the debt ceiling until 2017, well into the next presidential term when Barack Obama will be out of office.Seen on C-SPAN2: Senate passes #budegtdeal & #DebtCeiling bill, 64-35. https://t.co/5HdzxGbFqi pic.twitter.com/KtlyLzhn7M— CSPAN (@cspan) October 30, 2015
Eighteen Republicans voted for the deal, including RINO relics Mitch McConnell (RINO-KY), John McCain (RINO-AZ) and presidential candidate Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC), who is hovering around zero percent in all recent polls.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), also a presidential candidate, had attempted to filibuster the deal, but was stopped when the same eighteen treasonous RINO senators joined with Democrats to invoke cloture. Paul excoriated those who voted for the deal as being out of touch with the average American on the street and said that the vote is indicative of why Congress is held in such low opinion.Here are the 18 Senate Republicans who voted FOR the budget deal (Which passed 64-35): pic.twitter.com/qo50nchVFb— Frank Thorp V (@frankthorpNBC) October 30, 2015

Fellow presidential candidate, constitutional conservative Ted Cruz also sharply condemned the budget deal, which he had earlier in the week referred to as a “golden parachute victory for the Washington Cartel,” and a “complete and utter surrender” to “lame duck President Obama and Congressional Democrats to extend Washington’s failed spending policies another two years.” On the Senate floor, Cruz reportedly said that the budget deal is like giving Obama a “diamond encrusted glow in the dark AmEx card.”Doesn't seem to be a significant will on either side to stop spending. This is why congress has a 10% approval rating.— Dr. Rand Paul (@RandPaul) October 30, 2015
The legislation, which was passed in the House on Wednesday, will bust the previously agreed to 2011 budget caps and will increase spending on military and domestic programs by $80 billion.On Senate floor, @tedcruz says budget deal like giving Obama "diamond encrusted glow in the dark AmEx card." pic.twitter.com/JQ5uTeH5l5— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) October 30, 2015
The bill now goes to the desk of Obama, who will no doubt sign the bill as it gives him everything he desires.
Both the House and Senate have now completely surrendered their power of the purse to the anti-American, anti-freedom Obama Regime, and John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and the other corrupt RINOs who voted to increase deficit spending, must be held accountable.
