Budget Heats Up In The Senate - Gallup: "Americans See Republicans As Better Able To Handle The Budget"

Congress returns from recess on Monday, May 2. National Right To Life is reporting the U.S. House of Representatives will vote Wednesday May 4th on H.R. 3, the so-called "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act." This act would permanently restore the recently abrogated 30-year old Hyde Amendment across all federal government functions, and "replace this leaky patchwork [of loopholes for many tax-funded abortions] with a permanent, government-wide prohibition on federal funding of abortion and federal subsidies for health plans that cover abortion [except in the cases of rape or incest]." Dr. Bill Smith, Editor's Comment: I was a child having experienced as a child 3 mothers and 2 fathers. My sister with less numbers of parents did not favor any better as a child. Long complex stories. It has been reported that our mother later to have tried to kill me. Although separated as children, my sister and I today both agree that "Thank God, we were not aborted." We agree that the situation under which she became pregnant was not favorable for any person. But we survived and went on to have blessed lives and our own very normal families. In today's, world the child is written off. Thus, I can never support abortion, for inconvenience or even in the case of rape and incest. "Never blame and kill a child simply because the father is a criminal."

The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire wrote yesterday, “Two can play this budget game. A day after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) put Republicans on the spot by saying he will bring the House Republicans’ budget proposal up for a vote,  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) turned the tables by exercising his legislative prerogative to call for a vote on President Barack Obama’s budget. The two votes amount to legislative brinkmanship by both party leaders. Mr. Reid wants to put Republicans on record supporting legislation authored by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) that would eventually transform Medicare and Medicaid. Mr. McConnell, meanwhile, wants to force Democrats to vote on a plan that rolls back Bush-era tax cuts for people who make more than $250,000 and ignores many of the long-term costs driving the deficit.”

As Leader McConnell said yesterday, “Since there is no Democrat budget in the Senate, we’ll give our colleagues an opportunity to stand with the President in failing to address the problems facing our nation while calling for trillions in new spending, massive new debt and higher taxes on American energy, families and small businesses across the country.”

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, noted the stark contrast between the budget that passed the Republican-controlled House and the complete lack of one in the Democrat-run Senate: “Senator Reid has made a serious miscalculation if he believes bringing the House Republican Budget to the Senate will disadvantage Senate Republicans. . . . Instead, he will only draw more attention to the fact that House Republicans have presented an honest, principled budget while the Democrat-led Senate has failed to pass a budget in more than 700 days.”

Interestingly, the latest Gallup poll indicates that the American people are taking notice of Democrats’ irresponsibility when it comes to the budget, compared with Republicans presenting a plan to begin tackling our fiscal crisis. Gallup writes, “On the budget issue, Republicans have a 12-point advantage.” In the survey, 48% of respondents say Republicans in Congress “would do a better job of dealing with” the federal budget, compared to 36% for Democrats.

In his statement yesterday, Leader McConnell emphasized the Republican approach to the budget in light of Democrats ducking their responsibilities. “While Democrats have refused to offer a budget for the second year in a row, failed to protect families from policies that increase the price at the pump, and have yet to offer any serious plan to protect future generations from this administration’s spending spree, Republicans aren’t waiting for the next election to act. . . . House Budget Chairman Ryan presented, and the House passed, a budget to address our most pressing problems head-on at a moment when the President and other Democrat leaders simply refuse to do so themselves. It’s my hope that our friends on the other side recognize this effort for what it is — a serious, good-faith effort to do something good and necessary for the future of our nation and that, for the good of the nation, they’ll join in the effort at some point before it’s too late.”
