The Sixty Six who resisted “Sugar-coated Satan Sandwich” Debt Deal (Part 19)

The Sixty Six who resisted “Sugar-coated Satan Sandwich” Debt Deal (Part 19)

This post today is a part of a series I am doing on the 66 Republican Tea Party favorites that resisted eating the “Sugar-coated Satan Sandwich” Debt Deal. Actually that name did not originate from a representative who agrees with the Tea Party, but from a liberal.

Rep. Emanuel Clever (D-Mo.) called the newly agreed-upon bipartisan compromise deal to raise the  debt limit “a sugar-coated satan sandwich.”

“This deal is a sugar-coated satan sandwich. If you lift the bun, you will not like what you see,” Clever tweeted on August 1, 2011.

AUDIO: Kingston Opposes Debt Limit Increase

 
 
Washington, Aug 1-Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) released the following statement after casting his vote against a proposal to increase the nation’s statutory debt limit

“I commend the Speaker for fighting the good fight.  We moved the debate from tax increases to spending caps and matched each dollar of debt limit increase to more than a dollar of spending cuts.  But as far as we came, the deck was stacked against us.  Controlling one-half of one-third of government limits the ability of small government conservatives to change the direction of our country overnight.

It is clear America has a long struggle ahead of her as we continue to rein in spending and get our fiscal house in order.  I intend to continue the fight and work for the reforms and spending cuts we need so badly in America.”
