AZBD Note: This is absolutely incredible. The Democrats are actually holding up a bill that is the final nail in the coffin for the Republican party and the nation. This article does not really state why the Democrats oppose this bill; but probably because the treason doesn’t go far enough.
It will be forever known as the Obama-Boehner cromnibus spending deal no matter what happens tonight.
Speaker John Boehner, well more than four hours after GOP leadership sent the House of Representatives into recess subject to the call of the chair because it didn’t have the votes to pass the 1,744-page, $1.1 trillion spending deal, remains defiant and won’t admit what many are already saying: He’s failed.
Boehner’s insistence upon trudging forward with this comes amid hardcore resistance from powerful leaders in both the Republican and Democratic parties, but he did find new friends in the White House. President Barack Obama is working to break Democratic opposition to the bill. Obama sent his chief of staff Denis McDonough to Capitol Hill to ask Democrats at a 5:30 p.m. conference meeting to support the bill. Republican leaders, according to Politico, say they need 40 Democratic votes to pass the bill.
