Good News: House Will Exempt Hotcoldwetdry Funding From Budget Limits

We should all be demanding that any House member that approves of this along with voting for climate crisis (scam) measures should have to stop using fossil fuels (especially those funded by the taxpayers), turn the heat down to 60 in their offices, and not get meat in the House cafeteria, among others

House rules would exempt coronavirus, climate bills from budget limits

The new rules package for the 117th Congress unveiled by House Democrats on Friday would grant a sweeping new exemption from deficit controls for legislation related to the coronavirus pandemic or efforts to curb climate change.

The text of the resolution, which House leaders expect to take up Monday, would provide House Budget Chairman John Yarmuth, D-Ky., broad authority to “adjust” cost estimates for certain bills so that their budgetary impacts don’t count as increasing deficits under House rules.

In practice, the new section means legislation that fits within the two broad new categories doesn’t need to comply with appropriations limits affecting discretionary programs, or pay-as-you-go rules for measures affecting tax revenues and “direct spending,” otherwise known as mandatory programs. (snip)

The new language stipulates that “measures to prevent, prepare for, or respond to economic, environmental, or public health consequences resulting from climate change” wouldn’t be considered deficit-spending that requires offsets.

The same language applies to measures intended to address the “COVID-19 pandemic.” That could include much of the initiatives contained in earlier House Democratic relief packages that ranged in size from $2.4 trillion to $3.4 trillion in increased deficits.

I think we can all get the COVID part, but, this gives the unhinged climate cultists a chance to just waste taxpayer money willy-nilly on the climate change scam. And they will. If the GOP holds the Senate, will they hold strong on not passing this doomsday cult insanity?

    Another myth that 2020 obliterated was the notion that politicians spending more than a hundred billion dollars every year for science and public health would keep Americans safe.

    Thing is, the Democrats will have, at most, a 223-212, if not a 222-213 majority in the House. Speakess Pelosi cannot afford to lose more than five Democrats on the vote, and maybe no more than four, and there are still a few moderate Democrats out there. Enough of them? Well, who knows?

    But, come the 2022 elections, after redistricting takes seats away from California and New York, and gives them to Florida and Texas, the GOP will be much better positioned to take back control of the House.

    We should all be demanding that any and all Congresspersons and the President who have delayed getting relief to Americans take their own life.

      And the governors who have caused this unnecessary problem get passes?

      At least you’re consistent – you got everything backwards yet again.

    Of course, ghetto support programs will be exempt.

    They are just providing justification for President Trump to take action against government theft. They are planning to make the entire nation into Detroit, Newark, Baltimore, Saint Louis while they stuff their pockets.

    Teach always proclaims that others must be 100% pure or be deemed hypocrites
    But teach himself tegudrd to enlist in the war on terror and instead decided to list tell others what they should do
    Likewise he himself never really tried to do anything serious about legal abortion/baby murders
    And even continues to buy his electricity from Duke power even though they have announced plans to double their percentage of renewables in the n.v act four years
    Teach eont this cause their rates to “skyrocket”?
