house Bill H.R. 1314

Raising the Debt Limit and Establishing a Two-Year Budget

Argument in favor

Approving this budget will end the cycle of governing by crisis that featured stopgaps and continuing resolutions — providing needed certainty to the economy and the government for the next two years.

“Overall, we’ve got a bill where, for the first time, it looks like we’re going to take off the table having the Republicans shut down the government over raising the debt ceiling, and that’s a very important thing.” [salon.com]

Every administrative function must have an appeal process, that the IRS does not is disheartening but not surprising.

"The President's 2016 Budget is designed to bring middle class economics into the 21st Century. This Budget shows what we can do if we invest in America's future and commit to an economy that rewards hard work, generates rising incomes, and allows everyone to share in the prosperity of a growing America."

Argument opposed

There isn’t enough to like in this budget deal for either side of the debate — deficits will remain too high into the future, while spending on domestic programs and the military remains insufficient.

"This is not the budget I would have written. It doesn’t ask the most profitable corporations and the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share in taxes and it increases Pentagon spending too much. But I will support it because it’s much better than across-the-board budget cuts, increased premiums for Medicare, cuts to Social Security and the constant threat we won’t pay our bills."

Imagine your house is flooded with water.. The whole thing. Now would you raise the roof, let the water raise up to fill the now taller house and then wait awhile to then start trying to get the water out. Or would you get the water out immediately in an intelligent manner and not wait to raise the roof? I hope everybody with common sense would choose to hurry and go ahead and get the water out of their house methodically. But this is what is happening with our deficiency, we are raising the roof instead of getting the water out. We can't do this! It isn't helping!

    Churches, especially, should NOT be tax-exempt. Period.

    Given partisan government's proclivity to discriminate against organizations that they don't like, I believe an appeals process in reasonable and necessary.

    We have far too many tax exempt "Charities" that benefit only their owner/operators. Political PACs should ALL be denied ANY tax exempt status and should be required to publicly list all their donors who contribute over $1000.

    Believe it or not. People actually have to pay taxes. I know tons of billion dollar corporations don't but they are supposed to.

    NO NO NO!!! ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! This "budget" was put together under the secrecy of night with no debate. When the Speaker of the House floats an unseen bill to the floor for a vote and every member of the opposition party votes for it while only 30% of the Speaker's Party does, you know this is the worst of the worst in the cesspool of DC.

    Given the pseudo-flap created by the GOP over groups that clearly were not non-profit "educational" groups, but rather political instruments. Let's make the process transparent. If your going to lie about the purpose of your tax exempt political group, and have it rejected, you should have a right to appeal... So long as you are willing to pay for the cost of the appeal

    This is a mix bag bill--- we need to pass a bill that spells out what needs to be done with the budget and what needs to be done with the debt ceiling-- as we are today is going to reach a point of no return!!

    We need to stop raising the budget. It's politicians who are driving our country into a unplayable debt. Like Rand Paul said " Why don't we spend what comes in?"

    There has already been enough spending by our Commander and Chief. However military and social security recipients should be the ones to pay. How about shutting down government aid if you want to save money. Never hear of that threat
