House approves Republicans' 2012 budget proposal

Post by Jobless_in_Ma on Fri Apr 15, 2011 6:24 pm

The House of Representatives voted largely along party lines Friday to approve Republicans' 2012 budget proposal that would cut approximately $6 trillion in spending over the next 10 years.

The budget, which was crafted by House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) was approved in a 235 to 193 vote. Four Republicans -- Reps. Ron Paul (R-Texas), Walter Jones (R-N.C.), David McKinley (R-W.Va.) and Dennis Rehberg (R-Mont.) -- joined all House Democrats in voting against it. The bill is not expected to be taken up in the Senate.

Following the vote, the White House said it disagreed with the Republicans' approach.

"The House Republican plan places the burden of debt reduction on those who can least afford it, ends Medicare as we know it, and doubles health care costs for seniors in order to pay for more than a trillion dollars in tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires," Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement that also touted the budget plan put forward by President Barack Obama earlier this week.

When the Repo, men, the Republicans, tell you, flat out, they are coming for what you have worked for, the system that is set up for you, the working man. And when they show no signs, or interest to help create jobs, for you, so you can keep what you have, good lord what is there to debate?


Did anyone see the huffpost article on Obama? They say they caught him on tape he was telling the GOP NO WAY JOSE! Not gonna happen. I was SO proud.

Agree...I'm hoping the Senate won't pass this legislation. It will hurt everyone. Sad

This budget bill that passed was Paul Ryan's crazy plan right? Not the compromise budget Obama and Beohner are working on?

Lendmeflight Read this and and try to figure it out..


Statement by the President on H.R. 1473



Today I have signed into law H.R. 1473, the "Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011".

Section 1112 of the Act bars the use of funds for the remainder of fiscal year 2011 to transfer Guantanamo detainees into the United States, and section 1113 bars the use of funds for the remainder of fiscal year 2011 to transfer detainees to the custody or effective control of foreign countries unless specified conditions are met. Section 1112 represents the continuation of a dangerous and unprecedented challenge to critical executive branch authority to determine when and where to prosecute Guantanamo detainees, based on the facts and the circumstances of each case and our national security interests. The prosecution of terrorists in Federal court is a powerful tool in our efforts to protect the Nation and must be among the options available to us. Any attempt to deprive the executive branch of that tool undermines our Nation's counterterrorism efforts and has the potential to harm our national security.

With respect to section 1113 of the Act, the restrictions on the transfer of detainees to the custody or effective control of foreign countries interfere with the authority of the executive branch to make important and consequential foreign policy and national security determinations regarding whether and under what circumstances such transfers should occur in the context of an ongoing armed conflict. We must have the ability to act swiftly and to have broad flexibility in conducting our negotiations with foreign countries. The executive branch has sought and obtained from countries that are prospective recipients of Guantanamo detainees assurances that they will take or have taken measures reasonably designed to be effective in preventing, or ensuring against, returned detainees taking action to threaten the United States or engage in terrorist activities. Consistent with existing statutes, the executive branch has kept the Congress informed about these assurances and notified the Congress prior to transfers. Requiring the executive branch to certify to additional conditions would hinder the conduct of delicate negotiations with foreign countries and therefore the effort to conclude detainee transfers in accord with our national security.

Despite my continued strong objection to these provisions, I have signed this Act because of the importance of avoiding a lapse in appropriations for the Federal Government, including our military activities, for the remainder of fiscal year 2011.

Nevertheless, my Administration will work with the Congress to seek repeal of these restrictions, will seek to mitigate their effects, and will oppose any attempt to extend or expand them in the future.

Section 2262 of the Act would prohibit the use of funds for several positions that involve providing advice directly to the President. The President has well-established authority to supervise and oversee the executive branch, and to obtain advice in furtherance of this supervisory authority. The President also has the prerogative to obtain advice that will assist him in carrying out his constitutional responsibilities, and do so not only from executive branch officials and employees outside the White House, but also from advisers within it.

Legislative efforts that significantly impede the President's ability to exercise his supervisory and coordinating authorities or to obtain the views of the appropriate senior advisers violate the separation of powers by undermining the President's ability to exercise his constitutional responsibilities and take care that the laws be faithfully executed. Therefore, the executive branch will construe section 2262 not to abrogate these Presidential prerogatives.



BARACK OBAMA



THE WHITE HOUSE,

April 15, 2011.




No

It reads to me like some of the recent budget cuts include spending that would hinder some departments in the Executive Branch, like Attorney General, Sec. of State and Homeland Security, the ability to do the jobs that were assigned to them under the Constitution.

The GOP budget is basically stripping the President of his power under the guise of "Budget" and putting the whole country at risk just to make the Obama Administration look bad.

Yes, that is exactly what they are going. They are trying to pass laws that limit the powers of the president. He can't allow this to happen.


The tea party is out of control.
