“Obama’s Mitch” McConnell and seventeen of his fellow RINO squish Surrender Caucus members gave Obama an early Christmas present early Friday morning, while American citizens, already shouldering an almost $19 trillion in debt — excluding trillions more in unfunded liabilities — received a trick not a treat.
Passed by a 64-35 vote in the U.S. Senate, the budget deal would eliminate the debt ceiling until 2017, well into the next presidential term when Barack Obama will be out of office.
Eighteen Republicans voted for the deal, including RINO relics Mitch McConnell (RINO-KY), John McCain (RINO-AZ) and presidential candidate Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC), who is hovering around zero percent in all recent polls.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), also a presidential candidate, had attempted to filibuster the deal, but was stopped when the same eighteen treasonous RINO senators joined with Democrats to invoke cloture. Paul excoriated those who voted for the deal as being out of touch with the average American on the street and said that the vote is indicative of why Congress is held in such low opinion.
Doesn’t seem to be a significant will on either side to stop spending. This is why congress has a 10% approval rating.

Fellow presidential candidate, constitutional conservative Ted Cruz also sharply condemned the budget deal, which he had earlier in the week referred to as a “golden parachute victory for the Washington Cartel,” and a “complete and utter surrender” to “lame duck President Obama and Congressional Democrats to extend Washington’s failed spending policies another two years.” On the Senate floor, Cruz reportedly said that the budget deal is like giving Obama a “diamond encrusted glow in the dark AmEx card.”
The legislation, which was passed in the House on Wednesday, will bust the previously agreed to 2011 budget caps and will increase spending on military and domestic programs by $80 billion.
The bill now goes to the desk of Obama, who will no doubt sign the bill as it gives him everything he desires.
Both the House and Senate have now completely surrendered their power of the purse to the anti-American, anti-freedom Obama Regime, and John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and the other corrupt RINOs who voted to increase deficit spending, must be held accountable.
