The ART of the Manufactured “Crisis.” Whenever you see the media drumming up a crisis in Washington over the budget you need to understand that the “rules” of the U.S. House THEY THEMSELVES SET are DESIGNED to create useful crisis for you distraction. They are like the “traditions of men” Jesus talked about the Pharisees and Sadducee using to circumvent God’s law. Congress does the same thing with the Constitution. Constitutionally speaking there is no need for most of these, in fact, presidential vetoes of a budget are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. The President may veto “laws.” The Budget IS NOT A LAW. The Constitution does not require ANY SENATE action. They MAY propose of concur with amendments, but are not required to confer on budgets but it is OPTIONAL. If the Senate does not pass anything relating to the House budget it stands. It is not a law because laws DO NOT EXPIRE, budgets do.
Among the other lies told by Washington and talked about in some length in the podcast before is the LIE that they will spend “this money now but reduce spending” for x number of years. No Congress can hold any future congress to any budgetary restrictions. It’s a LIE and we buy it because we do not know our Constitution.
