Santelli and Stockman: The budget deal “Is a joke and a betrayal. It’s the final surrender of the House Republican leadership.” (Video)

“(The Tea Party) ought to go after every incumbent Republican who voted for this abomination.”

We agree Mr. Stockman. Like we said 2014 is lining up to be a battle for the ages within the Republican Party. On one side is Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Cantor, Paul Ryan and the GOP establishment. On the other side of the pitch are the small government people, some of whom have made their way to DC in the past couple years, but most of whom have yet to breach the city gates. But they are coming.

Rising interest rates are going to explode the budget. No joke. There will be fiscal carnage.

The GOP leadership betrayed the American people. Simple as that.

Initial Medicare recipients like Social Security recipients made no payments!Where do you think the money came from to pay the benefits?These taxes should not have a ceiling and the rich should pay the tax rate on all income like most Americans !

It is a COMPROMISE and too much has been taken from the poor and unemployed already and jobs outsourced around the world!

I find it hard to feel bad for seniors of the Baby Boom. Collectively they've already leeched from the preceding generations, and they are now trying to absolutely demolish the younger generations by making us pay for their mistakes and greed. They deserve far more than Medicare cuts.

Until the Republican party can accept defense cuts there will be no real progress on fiscal issues. The Budget Control Act was a foolish, blunt instrument but still superior to this deal.

I listened to Sean Hannity with Mike Lee and Louie Gohmert (sp?) and darn he's a Texas Representative today about this. Although I understood what they were saying, not sure I agree.

When those dudes (GOP ) agree to do something good for the nation it scares me. I worry about what their motives are, it can't be good.

Now all we have too do is make all the sheeple who blindly support either party understand that they are all lying @$$4013$ and we can move forward.

Was a major campaign issue in 2012, ignored by the state-controlled media and trumped by having conscience based institutions provide abortifacients.

They are just looking towards the 2014 elections at this point. They don't want to offend anyone getting government money and they don't want another government shutdown.

I wish! the GOP leadership?? will never surrender. It will take law enforcement carrying out the will of the people to put them out of their offices. Elections are hopelessly corrupt.

Republicans have absolutely no ideas. They just want to keep Thier jobs. That is why they obstruct and do nothing. You want small government. Better come up with solutions instead of obstruction....

In exchange for raising spending from $967 billion to $1.014 Trillion, the Republicans will receive new taxes on travelers from the Democrats. Sounds Legit.

Dems are NOT going to approve anything that is in the best interest of the US, the people, honors our Constitution, Bill of Rights... freedoms and rights of the individuals.... They are all about themselves and the GOP/Rep's better get their act together and put forth solutions counteracting the obama corruption shoving down our throats all of the policies and reg's, agencies abusing their powers against the American Way of Life and are ability to bounce back economically, take back our health care, tax reforms, restore our military and educational systems, give back the non-profit and churches... organizations the ability to help those in need without the government sticking their noses in where they don't belong.

House leadership? There is no leadership in the House or from any republican, they just want to be liked by their compatriots on the other side.

Mark Levin complained bitterly about the deal. I would too. The deal did not go far enough. In the long run we will be back to where we started.
