Senate approves two-year budget deal in 3 a.m. vote

by Jordain Carney  |  published on October 30, 2015
The Senate passed a two-year budget deal that raises the debt ceiling early Friday morning, sending the agreement to President Obama’s desk.
The deal was approved in a 64-35 vote after 3 a.m. after a late speech by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who criticized the legislation as a blank check for President Obama to add to the nation’s debt.
“Both sides of the aisle have what I would call sacred cows. On the right, they have the sacred cow of military contracts. …The left wants more welfare,” he said, adding, “Should we give Congress more money? Hell no.
Few other senators seemed interested in Paul’s speech, as the presiding officer repeatedly had to ask senators to keep their conversations down so that Paul could speak.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) tweeted her dissatisfaction, arguing the GOP presidential candidate was simply seeking attention for his campaign.

    Sen. Lee: Budget Deal is ‘Last Gasping Breath of a Disgraced Bipartisan Beltway Establishment’

    (CNSNews.com) – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) excoriated the budget deal passed by the Republican-controlled Senate on a 64 to 35 vote early Friday morning, calling it “the last gasping breath of a disgraced bipartisan Beltway establishment on the verge of collapse.” The Republican-controlled House passed the bill 266 to 127 on Wednesday. “The bill is the product of an unfair, dysfunctional, and fundamentally undemocratic process – a process that is virtually indistinguishable from what we promised the American people a G.O.P.-controlled Congress would bring to an end,” Lee told his Senate colleagues. “We made that promise because negotiating legislation behind closed doors…The Truth From One Senator!!

    The Senate passed Obama’s budget deal at about 3AM this morning. As expected, every Democrat (and socialist Bernie Sanders) voted with Obama. So it needed 14 Republican votes to pass. It got 18. Here are there names.

    What a dumb question, “Does Congress Care”. Of COURSE they don’t care!!! If they did, they wouldn’t be taking 45+ useless votes to defund Obamacare. They’d be doing stuff that actually had a chance of passing, and that majority of people needed. But they’d rather have endless, expensive hearings about Benghazi, and fight over doctored videos about baby parts. Do they care that we lose ground every day to Russian and Chinese interests in the Arctic? Do they care about coal miners’ health and safety? Do they care about the factories closing and the jobs lost because the Export-Import Bank has closed? No – they care about whatever the Koch Brothers pay them to care about.1

    Yes, it WILL BE….not a doubt in my mind & the TRUE WINNER in this coming election is going to be the Patriotic AMERICAN CITIZENS when DONALD TRUMP resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (AFTER it’s FUMIGATED & Sterilized of course). At this point in time we NEED to keep both Cruz & Rubio in their CURRENT SENATE SEATS to keep on fighting the D.C. ESTABLISHMENT. They’re both young enough to run again if they want AFTER Trump & the administration he forms has RETURNED AMERICA TO GREATNESS AGAIN….which Trump WILL DO LIKE NO ONE ELSE CAN!!!!!!!!! That is the reason he is SO FEARED & DESPISED by the D.C. Establishment & MSM…Trump as President will TOTALLY DESTROY ALL of their Socialist/Communist agenda they’ve instituted and been chipping away at & slowly building over the last 50 YEARS of my life. I’ve lived through it & watched it happen!!! The CITIZENS of this country have more than had it with the 536 people that make up our President & Congress (there are some exceptions, but far too few) making our laws we ALL have to live by (EXCEPT ALL OF THEM OF COURSE!!) by feeding us BOLD FACED LIES just to get elected & 50% of Supreme Court justices & the MSM SELLING US 300 PLUS MILLION CITIZENS OUT by NOT LISTENING TO US, IN TRAMPLING & SELLING OUT OUR CONSTITUTION & BILL OF RIGHTS!!!!! TRUMP WILL RETURN this country to the PEOPLE like NO ONE ELSE CAN.see more

    My reply was much more than just the Koch Bros. Too bad you only concentrated on that one phrase.

    So in your reply, you chose to vilify Only Republicans…Once again giving
    Democrats a pass…The Koch reply was all that was needed!

    Really? I was vilifying only Republicans? Interesting that you would say that. Not once did I mention Republicans. I was talking about Congress. If I was unclear, then I apologize and will say, now, that I was vilifying Congress, not Republicans.

    And just to note: in your original post, YOU were the one that seemed to be vilifying Republicans. Reread your post and you’ll see.

    I misunderstood your post…I Apologize!
    Yes, I did vilify Republicans for once again going along on the Federal Budget…Increasing spending, Never Cutting Outgo!
    Also S/S always takes hits…which is totally Congress’ Fault with funds going into General Treasury, instead of a Fund set Aside!

    This is all for show folks, Fake fights so people can show the voters that they fought for a smaller budget but those nasty Democrats stopped them. They gave Obama a blank check? All you supporters of the constitution should know that the White House can’t spend a dime without congress. The power of the purse rests with Congress. People don’t even understand that as of right now the government hasn’t spent one dime. Next comes the real bill, or should I say bills. Now they will passed all the spending bills, 13 if they do each one at a time. No one is talking about those bills. Those are the bills that our good congressmen will add the pork. The other interesting thing is no one has used the total amount of the budget, just that it’s Bigger then last years. Just so you know they have increased spending by 8% and the biggest part of that is for the military. If I’m correct this should be the most money the military a ever gotten with out being engaged in a major war. I hope you enjoyed the show.

    And the treachery deepens as The Senate now tells the people to shut up and take their medicine and to not be concerned in the governments transgressions. We are now being told that the people don’t matter in the Senates business.
    How much longer and deeper into slavery must we go before the people raise their standard and tell these traitors no more.
    I am only one person but I and others now guide our cities councils commissioners and Sheriff. We who took time to elect in the honor of their position as true representatives of the people. Local elections can make the difference because where we live affects us the most. I pray other communities see the need to come together and as a State refuse the federal Governments control over the people of these United States. God Bless the republic.
