Jim Jordan Says, In Effect: ‘Hell No You Don’t!’

Filed under: Economy,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 6:26 pm

Those are my words mimicking John Boehner’s last fall, but that’s in effect what Ohio’s Fourth District congressman has just said in reax to the Speaker’s two-step:

“While I thank the Speaker for fighting for Republican principles, I cannot support the plan that was presented to House Republicans this afternoon.”

“The credit rating agencies have been clear that no matter what happens with the debt limit, the U.S. will lose its AAA credit rating unless we produce a credible plan to reduce the debt by trillions of dollars. Cut, Cap, and Balance is the only plan on the table that meets this standard. Only a Balanced Budget Amendment will actually solve our debt problems.”

“Washington wants a deal. Americans want a solution. The Senate should resume debate on the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act, amend it if necessary, and pass it, so we can provide the American people a real solution.”

Well, I guess you could say, “It’s on.”

  1. Please pray for a reduction of the debt by trillions of dollars.
    Please pray to end the Devil’s domination in the country:
    Please pray for all of our Political leaders so they do the right thing.

    Sáncte Míchael Archángele,
    defénde nos in proélio,
    cóntra nequítiam et insídias diáboli ésto præsídium.
    Ímperet ílli Déus, súpplices deprecámur:
    tuque, prínceps milítiæ cæléstis,
    Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos,
    qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo,
    divína virtúte, in inférnum detrúde.
    Ámen
