[su_right_ad]Conservative Republicans don’t want a deal for long-term funding of the government that is being pushed by House Speaker John Boehner.

These hard-line Republicans are already expressing their dissatisfaction with the plan outlined by Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) during a closed door meeting Tuesday morning. Instead of a spending bill that keeps the government funded through September with a chance to review the the Department of Homeland Security’s funding in March, the lawmakers want to pass a much shorter resolution…

Senate conservatives are beginning to badger House leaders over their plan to fund the government and symbolically disapprove of the president’s immigration action. GOP Sens. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, David Vitter of Louisiana and Mike Lee of Utah all began to blast the House GOP leadership’s plan on Tuesday afternoon, arguing that the House needs to block funding for implementation of Obama’s executive action now, not later…

Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has largely deferred to the House, declining to say what they should do and emphasizing twice on Tuesday that there will be no shutdown and that he’s likely to support whatever Boehner can pass.

Senate GOP hard-liners, though, think it won’t work.[su_csky_ad]

    So the obstructionist are going to obstruct themselves. GOP madness in the halls of congress. Thank you America for not voting and allowing the wing-nuts to vote these idiots into congress, now we can see how truly insane their policies and plans are.

        I kinda think they are doing that now. It is just going to be a mess for awhile until we can get them voted out of office. Hopefully the democrats will come up with a progressive platform that the people like and will get the democrats to the polls.

      They won’t. They will be a stick in the mud until they are voted out of office.

    Rome’s burning was done to music, what do we get?

    LOL, the executive order does not require funds from congress. More tea babble and hat, nothing more. Afterall it was mike lee who stated “it is good politics to oppose the black guy in the WH”

      Cutting funds would just end up allowing even more to stay. It would do the opposite of what they say they want. It is one of the dumber of the dumb ideas to come from the republicans.
