While you were watching the chaos going on in Egypt and such…Congress slipped something through they probably hope you don’t notice.
Congress passed H.J. Res. 117 which provides a six-month extension of appropriated funding for discretionary government operations, through March 27, 2013. Under current law, appropriated funding for discretionary spending is set to expire after September 30, 2012, the end of the fiscal year. According to CBO, H.J. Res. 117 would provide $1.047 trillion in regular appropriated funding for government operations on an annualized basis.
Congressman Goodlatte voted yes. Congressman Griffith voted no.
This funds the government through the rest of year, including Obamacare. Remember WAY back in 2010 when the GOP promised to defund Obamacare? I do.
His campaign manager recently wrote that “Bob Goodlatte has fought Obamacare from day one and voted to repeal and defund it many times…”
But not this time, or not not on any of the recent continuing resolutions that fund the very implementation of the very Obamacare program he promised to defund.
Unfortunately, political expediency trumps fiscal responsibility again. Thanks to Congressman Griffith for voting correctly on this…as for Goodlatte, well what else did you expect? This continues to be his M.O: Hide behind support for the balanced budget amendment, make excuses and then meekly go along with the spending orgy in Washington.
Do you like the way business is conducted in Washington D.C.? Does sending the same people partially responsible for the issues in D.C. back over and over again seem like the way to fix that?
I fully get that Bob is likely to be more fiscally responsible than Democrat Andy Schmookler. But is that good enough? I don’t think so and so did about 34% of the Republicans in the 6th District, who voted for Karen Kwiatowski in the GOP primary.
Do you want real change in D.C.? We need to put new blood into Congress. While Bob is likely to be back for another term in November; 2014 isn’t that far away. And 17% more of the vote isn’t going to be that hard to get as more people begin to realize the failure of leadership in D.C. extends beyond the White House.
