Another Case of Being ‘FOR’ It Before Being ‘AGAINST’ It


Again, are these guys illiterate?  Can they not read or do they think we’re too stupid to read?  Remember the Ryan Budget  (HConRes34)? 235 of 239 Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of passage of the Ryan Budget.  All 40 Republican Senators also voted in favor of passage of that same Ryan Budget (thankfully, all 57 Democrats voted against passage, causing it to fail passage in the Senate).

The Ryan Budget contained debt ceiling increases in each and every budget year.  Thus, each and every Republican who voted on the Ryan Budget already voted for a debt ceiling increase, not just this year, butEVERY SINGLE YEAR covered by the Ryan Budget:

2012 … $16,204,000,000,000
2013 … $17,177,000,000,000
2014 … $17,955,000,000,000
2015 … $18,704,000,000,000
2016 … $19,513,000,000,000
2017 … $20,257,000,000,000
2018 … $20,981,000,000,000
2019 … $21,711,000,000,000
2020 … $22,416,000,000,000
2021 … $23,105,000,000,000

When you call in to Senator Heller’s office on Thursday or Friday this week to tell him to leave Social Security alone, think about asking whether he opposes voting for s.1326, a clean bill to raise the Nation’s Debt Ceiling.  If he opposes that bill, as him how he reconciles that opposition to his vote for the Ryan Budget which would increase the debt ceiling to $16.2T next year and to $23.1T by 2021?
