Demon Pass

To "deem" a law passed without benefit of a vote by the Representatives of the people is what a dictator or does or what happens in an oligarchy.  We now live in a banana republic rather than a Representative Republic.  For the slower among us, this was never a Democracy and it's no longer a Republic. Even worse, the demon pass budget doens't even exist!

To all the idiots out there who insist that Republicans are just as bad as Democrats, not one Republican voted for this obamanation.

House Democrats 'Deem' $1.1 Trillion Budget as 'Passed'
Last night, as part of a procedural vote on the emergency war supplemental bill, House Democrats attached a document that "deemed as passed" a non-existent $1.12 trillion budget. The execution of the "deeming" document allows Democrats to start spending money for Fiscal Year 2011 without the pesky constraints of a budget.

The procedural vote passed 215-210 with no Republicans voting in favor and 38 Democrats crossing the aisle to vote against deeming the faux budget resolution passed.

Never before -- since the creation of the Congressional budget process -- has the House failed to pass a budget, failed to propose a budget then deemed the non-existent budget as passed as a means to avoid a direct, recorded vote on a budget, but still allow Congress to spend taxpayer money.

"Disgust" is too mild a word for this outrage.
