Cromnibus

Recommended Posts

Would you like some oil and water with your meal?

 

Whether you like it or not...you better drink it fast before it expires!

 

 

So why would the politicians mix different spending bills into one vote?

 

 

Then take it even further by adding continuing resolutions with different expiration dates into the mix.

 

And we wonder why the country has constant fiscal problems!

 

The Cromnibus creates partisan politics, not solutions...

 

 

"Get on the cromnibus: what this odd phrase has to do with the US budget"

 

 

 

 

"In recent years, as partisan brinksmanship has become more common, the budgeting process has grown more disorganized and more rushed. One way of speeding the process is an omnibus spending bill, which groups multiple appropriations areas in one piece of legislation for an up-or-down vote. Either your spending is on the bus, or it isn’t."

Cromnibus/Omnibus is a process, however dysfunctional, by which a minority of Congress, (committee leaders and their staff), control the process and leave the bulk of Congressional members out of the process.

 

 

Nifty way to undermine our republic and eliminate the Congressional democratic process.

Bad news for Hillary...

 

 

"Friday on PBS's "NewsHour," host Judy Woodruff discussed this weeks political developments with syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks. In that disccusion, Brooks declared "this weeks big loser was Hillary Clinton" since Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) led a somewhat successful populist revolt against President Barack Obama's compromise on the CR/omnibus bill exposing the Democrats Party divisions and said Hillary Clinton as a Wall Street friendly politician will not have a "cakewalk" into the Democratic nomination for president in 2016."

Right now the darling of the dems is Warren. She has a LOT OF BAGGAGE that will come out if she runs. The fact is Hilarity is extremely weak and the dems know it. Whether Pocahontas Warren runs or not there will be at least one other dem who sees how weak Hilarity is and will run. Hilarity is oblameo. Warren is a commie. 2016 looking good for GOP.
