"All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills." -U.S. Consititution, Article 7, Clause 1. Therefore, all bills of appropriation (i.e. revenue generation) MUST originate in the House of Reps. The Senate has the authority to suggest, amend, or recommend, but NOT originate. The House is the ultimate convening authority over ALL monies tha the USG spends, period. Anything otherwise is a violation of the Constitution of the United States, and violators should be charged as criminals (and I'll leave everyone here to sort their own meaning out). The House has all of the authority the the USC offers to shut the whole mess down, posthaste. The GOP does not due to their complicity. They are spineless, gutless, and willing accomplices in the theft and rape of our rights and lands.

Mathematics and rational economic conclusions, based upon said mathematical evidence, is a "racist," slur, then? Good, since it's all in the same boat, let's start talking about affirmative action as the failure that it is, the disparate numbers of "minorities," in prisons for committing more violent and drug crimes, and the proportionally enormous enrollment in welfare programs by "minorities." Since reason itself is a racist construct, let's get all the information out there and attack all of the problems at the same time. It comes down to one thing really: who is the sponge, and who is taxed to the ends of the earth (and credit taken out in their name) to support the parasite classes...
Dear Mr. Rubio, You have proven yourself a sell-out, and willing to denigrate and enslave American citizens for your pet project. Do yourself a favor and retire before your once-promising future as a conservative voice of reason is further tainted. You, like all the others, seem far more concerned for your legacy and re-election chances than you do about the Citizens of our Nation, and your pandering is no longer welcome. Propagandize to an Obama fundraiser, since that's precisely where you belong.
Rich, you just hit on the only real salvation for minimalizing gov't. spending. I say kudos for being of sound enough mind to read and understand our Consitution. There is the blatant reality of the situation that there will always be tax increases passed by the dark of night in order to continue the spending binge. There is also the underlying problem of whether or not 3/4 of all state legislatures would approve and pass said amendment, since the states, by and large, suckle from the gov't. teat as readily as most welfare junkies...

Indeed, a society that will not convict criminals or which calls their punishment "inhumane," cannot have order or peace in any established fashion.
That's right, they don't.... And their godless thievery and corruption are still winning the day. There is no positive solution, there will be a nation of slaves, or no nation at all.
So, you are on record, then, as wanting to "fine," citizens for exercising their protected rights of free speech, association, and political affiliation? Surprising, another statist scumbag that believes theft for their "worldview," is perfectly legal. Out of curiosity, are you really as stupid as you seem? Never mind, you've proven a hundred times over that you are...
The Founders didn't...various and assorted "courts," did that to us over time...
Probably been touched upon, but what is the argument here? We can spend a ludicrous sum that we don't have, or a slightly lower ludicrous sum that we don't have? What the hell is wrong with the American People, if there is such a thing anymore?...
Blah blah blah....until a party (not a politic al party, necessarily) stands up against, we are sunk..... When will that be? Never, in my estimation.... More thievery, more lawlessness, more ...fill in the blank....
Then you are a statist and an enemy of the United States.
