Why Mark Pocan, D-Madison, voted against the debt limit deal
“Forget the debt ceiling. The Biden-McCarthy compromise is a big deal because it is a spending compromise. An important provision of the deal is that if, by the end of the year, the House and Senate haven’t passed 12 appropriations bills (the long-forgotten way budgeting is supposed to work), all discretionary spending would become subject to an automatic 1% cut. This is what is known as a “sequester.” A sequester is to Democrats what garlic is to vampires. …
“The truth today is this: The modern Democratic Party — the party of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and the House Squad — won’t cut or slow spending for any existing federal program, ever. Now, Mr. McCarthy’s negotiators have managed to create a wedge against the left’s massive opposition to spending reforms.”

Deadliest Memorial Day weekend there in eight years.
It is to laugh
“Clarence Thomas, resign or be impeached”
Like Kevin McCarthy’s House of Reps is going to impeach Justice Thomas! (!!!) 😛

Question of the Day
What ‘Deep State’?
Rachael Rollins, the US attorney for Massachusetts, leaked sensitive Justice Department information to a journalist in an effort to influence a local election, lied to investigators and improperly attended a fundraiser with Jill Biden, according to two critical federal reports released Wednesday. (More here.)
How can anyone take them seriously?
Charles C.W. Cooke asks at National Review.
“Rachel Maddow made a career out of spreading lunatic conspiracy theories on MSNBC, as did Chris Hayes and Nicolle Wallace (who is still, today, rejecting all evidence that contradicts her fever dream). Adam Schiff lied relentlessly from his official perch on the United States House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and is now gearing up to run for the Senate.”
Uncle Joe signs big bill into law

DementiaJoKe signs a bill referred to as the Inflation Reduction Act which does NOTHING to reduce inflation, and what does despicable Lefty do?
Nods their idiot, empty noggins like the brainless bobble-heads they are!

Wrong. Increasing taxes decreases spending, which decreases inflation…..
Nice try, Steve. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office modeled the economic impacts of this bill and found that its projected impact on inflation is statistically indistinguishable from zero. That finding was further corroborated by another model done by the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, one of the best business schools in the world.
Load a bill with a bunch of feel-good pet projects at taxpayer expense in the face of a recession, give it a deceptive, innocent-sounding name, and hope like hell the electorate doesn’t read any further. Typical.

Nice to see that dementia Joe can still sign his name with a little help of his friends. I bet the ice cream he was promised for signing his name sure tasted good after he was done signing the paper.
Good boy Joe, good boy.
Not that he had any idea of what he just signed, but that’s okay.

“Courageous” Joe Manchin.
This is why I like my heroes safely dead.
Manchin sold out his state and his country for the equivalent of a few trinkets that the environmentalists in the administration can and would take away from West Virginia when they want. I said earlier this year to my liberal friends that every Senator and Representative has a price and I was only waiting for Manchin’s price to stop blocking the huge spending legislation bills. Only a pipeline for West Virginia? I am only surprised that Manchin didn’t get anything else (I have not heard of anything else than the pipeline as I write this) not fossil fuel related so that he has something to point out to his constituents when the greenies at the Federal level shut it down. Manchin is an amateur and a fool compared to what his predecessor Robert Byrd brought back to WV at US taxpayer expense. Too bad Manchin isn’t up for re-election this year as he would be in danger of looking for a new job after the New Year.
I wonder if the voters of WV will remember when the senator comes up for election in 2024. Maybe by that time the EPA or ESG’s will have stopped the pipeline concession the Dems gave him.
Barnes +7 over Johnson. WHAT?????
His “look at me I’m just a farm boy at heart” commercials are working.
But it’s still very early.
