By ANDREW TAYLOR
Associated Press




WASHINGTON —




Jolted to action by deficit-conscious newcomers, the
Republican-controlled House agreed early Saturday to cut $61 billion
from hundreds of federal programs and shelter coal companies, oil
refiners and farmers from new government regulations.By a 235-189
vote, largely along party lines, the House sent the bill to the Senate,
where it faces longer odds, and defied a veto threat from President
Barack Obama.Passage of the legislation was the most striking
victory to date for the 87 freshman Republicans elected last fall on a
promise to attack the deficit and reduce the reach of government. Three
Republicans joined Democrats in opposing the measure."The
American people have spoken. They demand that Washington stop its
out-of-control spending now, not some time in the future," said freshman
Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan.The $1.2 trillion bill covers every
Cabinet agency through Sept. 30, when the current budget year ends. It
imposes severe spending cuts on domestic programs and foreign aid.
Targets include schools, nutrition programs, environmental protection,
and heating and housing subsidies for the poor.The measure faces a
rough ride in the Democratic-controlled Senate. That was the case even
before late GOP amendments pushed the bill further to the right on
health care and environmental policy.Senate Democrats are
promising higher spending levels and are poised to defend Obama's health
care bill, environmental policies and new efforts to overhaul
regulation of the financial services industry.Changes rammed
through the House on Friday and Saturday would shield greenhouse-gas
polluters and privately owned colleges from federal regulators; block a
plan to clean up the Chesapeake Bay; and bar the government from
shutting down mountaintop mines it believes will cause too much water
pollution.In almost every case, the measure sides with business groups over environmental activists and federal regulators."This
is like a Cliff Notes summary of every issue that the Republicans, the
Chamber of Commerce, and the (free market) CATO Institute have pushed
for 30 years," said Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass. "And they're just going
to run them through here."The differences are wide and won't be
resolved soon. That confronts lawmakers with the need for a temporary
spending bill when the current one expires March 4.Senate
Democrats and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, are maneuvering for
political advantage in anticipation of talks on a short-term extension.Democrats
say Boehner's insistence that any measure carry spending cuts amounts
to an ultimatum that could threaten a government shutdown. Such an
impasse played to the advantage of Democratic President Bill Clinton in
his battles with Republicans in 1995-1996.The Obama
administration upped the ante on Friday, warning that workers who
distribute Social Security benefits might face furloughs if the GOP cuts
go through.Across four long days of freewheeling debate, Republicans left their conservative stamp in other ways.They
took several swipes at Obama's year-old health care law, including a
vote to ban federal dollars for putting it into effect. At the behest of
anti-abortion lawmakers, they called for an end to federal money for
Planned Parenthood.Republicans awarded the Pentagon an increase
of less than 2 percent increase, but domestic agencies would endure cuts
of about 12 percent. Such reductions would feel almost twice as deep
since they would be spread over the final seven months of the budget
year.Republicans back away from some of the most politically
difficult cuts to grants to local police and fire departments, special
education and economic development. Amtrak supporters repelled an
attempt to slash its budget.About the only victory scored by
Obama was on a vote to cancel $450 million for a costly alternative
engine for the Pentagon's next-generation F-35 warplane. It was a
priority of Defense Secretary Robert Gates and passed with the votes of
many GOP conservatives who opposed the $3 billion program.The
Environmental Protection Agency took hits from Republicans eager to
defend business and industry from agency rules they say threaten job
creation and the economy. The EPA's budget was slashed by almost
one-third, and then its regulatory powers were handcuffed in a series of
votes.The measure would block proposed federal regulations on
emission of greenhouse gases, which are blamed for climate change. It
also would stop a proposed regulation on mercury emissions from cement.
Additionally, the bill calls for a halt to proposed regulations
affecting Internet service providers and privately-owned colleges.The 359-page bill was shaped beginning to end by the first-term Republicans, many of them elected with tea party backing.They
rejected an initial draft advanced by the leadership and produced by
Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky., chairman of the Appropriations Committee, saying
it did not cut deeply enough.The revised bill added more
reductions and cut $100 billion from Obama's request for the current
year, the amount Republicans had cited in their campaign-season Pledge
to America.But a tea party-backed amendment to cut $22 billion on
top of the $60-billion-plus worth of steep cuts already made by the
measure failed by almost 2-to-1.The heavily subsidized ethanol
industry absorbed a pair of defeats. One blocks the agency approving
boosting the amount of ethanol in most gasoline to 15 percent.EPA
foes prevailed in halting the agency from using its powers to try to
curb greenhouse gases. The EPA has taken steps to regulate global
warming pollution from vehicles and the largest factories and industrial
plants and is expected to soon roll out rules that target refineries
and power plants.The move to stop the EPA from regulating
greenhouse-gas polluters came from Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, who said his
congressional district is home to more oil refineries than any other.

I think the difference this time is the people were not as pissed off the last time when Clinton was pulling his tricks! Now the folks are many many more that are pissed and they are really pissed more than ever! JMHO!! I think it will be much worse for the Demoncraps than the Pubs this time round!!! It had better be or we are all in trouble!!!

But I hope you are right.

This country is full of self absorbed ass wipes. Look at Wisconsin. They want the government to get spending under control but when it affects their tax payer paid money bucket they go ape shit.

I am glad this Gov is doing what he is doing and I hope he sticks to his guns. This country is bust, our wallets are bust, and it the bleeding does not stop, all that will be left of this place is a bust with a target painted on its forehead.

Double Amen. Although this weekend I was looking at the red and blue states maps form 2008 and 2010 and they blue is looseing much of their color, going to grey and light blue meaning that people are changing their minds about these scarletains. These state are now more competitive. Today I read that more and more anglos are turning towards the Republican party. I'm hoping that capital chill doesn't screw this trend up.

They need to be watched as they will try anything but if it keeps going as it is now, they will take the blame and the Pubs will gain momentum as we approach 2010 That needs to happen badly of there is going to be nothing left!!! JMHO!!

It will be an uphill battle for sure. The Pubs have alot of things that can go wrong, they are not a shoe in by any means. Right now to me both parties look like a bunch of idiots. I have no faith in anything regarding politicians.
