Squishy Republicans Give In, Pass Short Term Funding Bill

Democrats mostly got everything they wanted, except for Ukraine funding. Which lots of squishy Republicans also wanted

Threat of government shutdown ends as Congress passes a temporary funding plan and sends it to Biden

The threat of a federal government shutdown ended late Saturday, hours before a midnight deadline, as Congress approved a temporary funding bill to keep agencies open and sent the measure to President Joe Biden to sign.

The rushed package drops aid to Ukraine, a White House priority opposed by a growing number of GOP lawmakers, but increases federal disaster assistance by $16 billion, meeting Biden’s full request. The bill funds government until Nov. 17.

Republicans: elect us and we’ll roll back insane spending, cut out the crazy stuff. Also Republicans: we don’t want Democrats and the Credentialed media to talk bad about us.

“We’re going to do our job,” McCarthy, R-Calif., said before the House vote. “We’re going to be adults in the room. And we’re going to keep government open.” (snip)

The package funds government at current 2023 levels until mid-November, setting up another potential crisis if they fail to more fully fund government by then. The package was approved by the House 335-91, with most Republicans and almost all Democrats supporting. Senate passage came by an 88-9 vote.

Basically, they gave in and are spending way too much, doing exactly what their constituents did not want them to do

But the loss of Ukraine aid was devastating for lawmakers of both parties vowing to support President Volodymyr Zelenskyy after his recent Washington visit. The Senate bill included $6 billion for Ukraine, and both chambers came to a standstill Saturday as lawmakers assessed their options.

“The American people deserve better,” said House Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York, warning in a lengthy floor speech that “extreme” Republicans were risking a shutdown.

That’s a strange place to put that second paragraph. Does Jeffries mean Americans deserve to be spending oodles of money on Ukraine? Cocaine Mitch McConnell was upset, too, and wants more funding for Ukraine, despite opposition from the American people. Even a CNN poll has 55% saying no more funding.

Anyhow, the Senate passed it, and now it goes to Let’s Go Brandon. Will he sign it with no Ukraine funding?

Oh, and then there’s this guy, who tried to stop House business

It was Jamaal. He tried to make an excuse, but, it’s a misdemeanor in the city of DC, with a large fine and/or up to 6 months in jail. Also, didn’t people get long prison sentences for interfering with House business for J6? The police are investigating, and the GOP has articles to boot him from the House.

    Republican is a Latin word which means surrender without a fight.

    Conservative voters need to elect more Representatives like Gaetz, Greene, Boebert, Biggs, Gosar etc. Although conservatives reject democratic methods, in the House the majority rules. The House vote was 335-91. The Senate, 88-9.

    President-in-exile Trump was not pleased and did not sign the bill! Pretender to the throne, Brandon, did sign it.

    This AM Matt “Big Head” Gaetz promises to vote Kevin “Squish” McCarthy out as House Speaker.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Yeah, we “need” mo dem reps. like JamBow setting off fire alarms to delay voting.
      Dat be democracy fo shu.

      Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        If the MAGAt Caucus hopes to govern they will need more Reps like Gaetz and Greene.

        The Repubs don’t elect a lot of black representatives, so you can save your racist mockery.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Oh, so now Rimjob, the embezzler, has a problem with what he considers “racist” mockery?

    Whenever I need advice on how to make the Republican party better, I always seek out someone who has shown hostility to Republicans and conservatives. Taking the advice of people who hate you is always good policy.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      We don’t hate Republicans and conservatives, but we are very suspicious of MAGAts, nuCons and nuGOPhers. We object to almost everything that Trump, MT Greene, etc spews.

      That said, we prefer traditional Dem policies – progressive taxes, EPA, education, healthcare, freedom, equal rights etc.

  8. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    And as I stated previously, there are not enough MAGAts in Congress to enact MAGAt policies – executing political opponents, shooting rioters, cutting all gov’t spending (SS, Medicare/Medicaid, interest, defense), control of media, end aid to Ukraine etc).

    If you want MAGAt control you need to 1) elect The Don and 2) elect more congressional MAGAts.

    Our democratic systems allows that!

    • James Lewis says:

      Dear Elwood:

      As usual you blather a lot.

      Biden has made enough MAGA’s to support President Trump in his second term.

      And none of us wants to cut all spending. Just the spending that allows failed agencies…education…energy.. transportation… et al to continue.]

    An attack on our democracy. Worse than 911.

    Was Rep Bowman working alone or was he following directions of the Democrat leadership? Why didn’t Joe Biden call for peace?? Did Biden call for an insurrection by fire alarm??
