BOOM! NOT ENOUGH SUPPORT, House GOP Leaders Delay ‘Cromnibus’ Vote

Unsure whether they have the votes to pass a trillion-dollar federal spending package, House GOP leaders on Thursday afternoon delayed a final vote on the “cromnibus.”

They did so with mere hours to go until the government is set to run out of funding, and just before the House was scheduled to vote.

GOP leaders called a recess to floor proceedings, with a GOP leadership aide confirming “no conference meeting [is] planned at this time.” The aide said “leadership teams are still talking to their respective members,” and noted, “We still plan to vote this afternoon.”

It’s not clear, however, what they will be voting on.

If Republicans can’t surmount the impasse, they could decide to proceed with swiftly moving a short-term continuing resolution through the chamber, which the Senate could also pass before 11:59 p.m., when current funding expires.

In doing so, they would be throwing away months of hard-fought negotiations between appropriators and dashing dreams of a return to regular order when the GOP takes control of all of Capitol Hill in the new year.

White House budget office holds call to prepare for shutdown

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on Thursday held a conference call with government agencies and departments to prepare them for a possible shutdown, as the House struggles to pass a funding bill.

"Congress is taking a series of actions today on legislation that would prevent a lapse in appropriations and allow for continued Government operations. We continue to believe that time remains for Congress to pass full-year appropriations for FY 2015, and prevent a government shutdown," an OMB official said in a statement.

"However, out of an abundance of caution, we are working with agencies and taking steps to prepare for all contingencies, including a potential lapse in funding.”

While the White House still doesn't believe a shutdown is likely, the call came as lawmakers looked for the votes to pass a $1.1 trillion spending bill unveiled earlier this week.

While President Obama backed the bill despite provisions that would roll back elements of the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill and reduce limits on campaign contributions, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she would not be backing the legislation.

“I’m enormously disappointed that the White House feels that the only way they can get a bill is to go along with this. That would be the only reason I think they would say they would sign such a bill,” Pelosi said.

In a subsequent "Dear Colleague" letter, the Democratic leader said it was "that the Republicans don’t have enough votes to pass the CRomnibus."

The House went into recess Thursday afternoon shortly after a harrowing vote to approve the House rule governing debate on the spending package, which was approved 214-212 only after intense lobbying by Republican leadership.

***Thank Goodness, ..enough CLEAR THINKING Conservatives, ...Acknowedge that the "CRomomibus BILL", is ....NOTHING MORE THAN, "A PIG IN A POKE". ...PERIOD.

Speaker Boehner, ...Better ...""" GET YOUR ACT (Favoring #Obama), IN ORDER""", ...PERIOD.

It passed this afternoon.

Cowards. Nothing more, nothing less...
In that 1.1 trillion dollar spending bill is over 1 billion to spend on Obama's Gun Control Bill. If for no other reason it should not be passed because it Attacks our 2nd Amendment. As bonehead said if we don't get together and Pass this Bill we will be here till Christmas! All we want is for your dumb ass to read the Bill all 2000 pages.
Anyone want to guess how many congressmen/women have read the Bill? (0) would be my guess!

Bonehead, macnutt,  demonrats,  rinos, no bills up for passage UNTIL NEW SESSION !!! Form new spending bill that  supports USA & Constitution!!!

 Patriots,Contact your state reps, senators, govs, to support Article V Convention of States !!!

Lets get rid of all of those commies-muzlmnbro crapolas in fed gov.

I just heard a senator say they are trying to pass a bill they have not read and do not know what it contains with in it. Deja Vu. Nanny Peloshee has infected the mind of Baynor. Evil is an inherent trait of all politicians. I call for Baynor to resign immediately. He thinks he can now act as a king. Never will I vote for a republican. NEVER.

Up until today the logo of the Republican Party was the noble elephant. John Boehner and his spineless gang of "House leaders" have effectively replaced it with the RAT! How appropiate!  

Good news for our side!

Ya gotta know, if BO is for it, it can't be good!

Racism -> Emergency Medical Doctor Rails Against Whites: “White People Can Be Exhausting” – ‘Racism Towards Whites Doesn’t Exist’ 

 Esther Choo (pictured above), an emergency medical doctor and professor in Oregon, took to Twitter to rail against white people and after getting called out for her racism, she asserted that it’s impossible to be racist towards whites.

According to Choo’s bio, she’s an emergency physician and associate professor at the Oregon Health & Science University.

Choo is the daughter of Korean immigrants and uses social media to talk about racism and sexism in healthcare, according to her bio.

“White people can be exhausting. Just an observation,” Choo said in a tweet on Friday.

When she received backlash for her racist tweet, Choo continued to taunt and disparage whites.

“Observation #2: white people are going to prove my point on this very thread,” Choo said responding to the backlash.

She also bragged that Twitter took her side when people reported her tweet.

“Observation #3: when people try to convince Twitter that white people are experiencing reverse racism, Twitter understands that is not a thing.”

Twitter may not have a problem with racism against white people, but what about the medical community?

Dr. Choo received huge backlash on Twitter.

This is coming from an Emergency Medicine Physician who is considered a "leader" in her field. She's scheduled to be a speaker at the American College of Emergency Physicians in October. She runs a website called FeminEM prompting Feminist causes in EM and a racist.

Pretty racist statement, TBH.

Protected groups being immune to being called out for blatant bigotry is exhausting, just an observation.

Replace “white” with any other race, and Dr. Choo would be out of a job.

Update: Dr. Choo deleted her racist tweets and set her Twitter account to “private” after she received backlash from hundreds of people.
