House WILL Vote on Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill!

Don’t understand why Speaker Boehner and Eric Cantor had to be shamed into doing the right thing for Hurricane Sandy victims.

Politico is reporting….

After a barrage of criticism over his decision to scrap a Tuesday night vote on a disaster aid bill, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Wednesday that the House will vote in two phases to provide billions in relief to Hurricane Sandy victims. On Friday it will vote on a measure “to direct resources to the National Flood Insurance Program;” then on Jan. 15 it will take up “the remaining supplemental request” for Sandy victims. Boehner did not detail the dollar amounts of the measures. “Getting critical aid to the victims of Hurricane Sandy should be the first priority in the new Congress, and that was reaffirmed today with members of the New York and New Jersey delegations,” Boehner said in a joint statement with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.).

The House Passes Bill to avert Fiscal Cliff

From Politico

The House has passed a bill to avert the fiscal cliff, 257-167, sending the bill to President Barack Obama and ending a dramatic New Year’s Day showdown over income taxes and deep federal spending cuts. The bill — which would allow tax rates on upper income Americans to jump, makes permanent middle class tax cuts, extends unemployment benefits and overhauls a variety of other tax and spending measures — passed the Senate early in the morning on New Year’s Day on an 89-8 vote.

The passage of this bill was done with majority support from Democrats and the support of 85 Republicans; including notable Republicans Speaker Boehner and Paul Ryan.

President Obama will sign this bill into law tomorrow!

What’s next???

  • Avoiding the sequestration cuts and coming up with cuts that are responsible and will not hurt the economy and Americans
  • Raising the Debt Ceiling
As always….

House will vote on Senate bill w/o amendments to avert Fiscal Cliff

In a move that just makes sense, House Republicans will NOT add amendments to the Senate‘s bill to avert the Fiscal Cliff.  Speaker Boehner will take an up-or-down vote a clean Senate passed bill.  This bill will more than likely need the support of both Democrats and Republicans in the House to pass.

Politico reporting…

The House plans to vote tonight on the Senate-passed bill to avert the fiscal cliff. Passage in the House, which is expected, would clear the bill for law since President Barack Obama has said he will sign the legislation.

The decision to move to an up-or-down vote comes after House Republicans internally rejected a plan to amend the bill with a package of spending cuts. That move would’ve likely killed the bill, allowing taxes to go up on all Americans.

House Republicans Oppose Senate Bill to Avert Fiscal Cliff…

According to Politico….

House Republicans are overwhelmingly opposed to the Senate’s bill to avert the fiscal cliff, making it nearly certain that Speaker John Boehner’s chamber will amend the legislation and send it back to the Senate — a potentially serious blow to a package that appeared well on its way to becoming law. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the No. 2 House Republican, told GOP lawmakers that he was opposed to the legislation in its current form. Republicans are chiefly concerned with the lack of spending cuts in the tax bill.
