  •  Well, voting is key to this becoming, you know... (0+ / 0-)

    ...law?

    Yes, it's his proposal.
    Yes, that carries some weight, just like all his other proposals that never became law.

    But again, who is going to vote for this?

    I repeatedly claimed that Obama would never propose cuts to social security. I was wrong. Then again, I also claimed, repeatedly, that Rick Perry would win the 2012 Election, and that The Supreme Court would overturn Health Care Reform.

      but his signature has a bit to do with it becoming law too.

      •  Does he sign the bill first? (0+ / 0-)

        Or do I have School House Rock backwards?

        Listen, if somehow this gets passed, then yes, the President would be to blame.along with all those on either side who enabled this.

        But in all the hysterics, the underwear gnomes haven't been able to explain how we get from Step 1: President proposes something in a budget to Step 3: Bill becomes a Law.

        The Republicans can't vote for it. They could never be seen compromising with Obama.
        The Republicans can't vote against it if it comes to the floor. The Club for Growth would pillory them.
        The Republicans can't vote for it. Grover Norquist has labeled it a tax increase.
        The Democrats can't pass it. They don't control the House.
        No one in Congress can pass it. They face the voters in, what, 20 months?
        A third of the Senate can't pass it. They're up for reelection too.

        Vigilance is a good thing, but so is a little bit of logic.

        I repeatedly claimed that Obama would never propose cuts to social security. I was wrong. Then again, I also claimed, repeatedly, that Rick Perry would win the 2012 Election, and that The Supreme Court would overturn Health Care Reform.
