Richard Burr: Barry & Harry’s useful idiot

sellout

 

 

 

Apparently, Richard Burr thinks keeping The New York Times happy IS more important than saving the country. 

As the US Senate voted 81-19 to shove a knife in the back of American taxpayers, Richard Burr took one more swipe at people like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee who valiantly tried to put the brakes on a runaway train:

[…] Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina took a swipe at his fellow Republican senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, as well as House members who linked government financing to defunding the health care law, which is financed by its own designated revenues and spending cuts.

“Let’s just say sometimes learning what can’t be accomplished is an important long-term thing,” Mr. Burr said, “and hopefully for some of the members they’ve learned it’s impossible to defund mandatory programs by shutting down the federal government.”

The media and the Washington establishment have touted the Senate spending vote as a grand compromise.  Let’s see what we got:  a debt ceiling increase through mid-November and a blank check for the federal bureaucracy through January.   Spending is increasing and the debt is growing.  The Democrats and Barry got what they wanted.  And we’ll be right back here in this same position in mid-November AND January.  *TALK about profiles in courage.*

We’ve got $17 trillion in debt, and DICK Burr wants to add to it.  There’s no interest in  following the budgeting requirements laid out by The Constitution.  There’s no interest in reducing our debt for the sake of future generations.

This is the latest stab in the back DICK Burr has subjected us to.  He’s voted for gun control, for women in combat, and for gays in the military.  He’s voted multiple times to keep the runaway spending train speeding down the track.  When Rand Paul was standing up for us in his filibuster earlier this year, ol’ DICK was out being wined and dined by Barry at a posh DC restaurant.  How is this any different from what Senator Erskine Bowles or Elane Marshall would have given us?

DICK told us that trying to defund ObamaCare was “the dumbest idea” he’d ever heard.  (I’m sure he’s heard dumber things hanging around with John McCain and Lindsey Graham.)  Big Barry liked that quote from ol’ DICK so much that he used it in speeches to beat down Ted Cruz and Mike Lee’s valiant efforts.

When it came time to stand up for the American people, and take a stand against out-of-control government spending and indebtedness, Burr stood with his buddies in Washington.  It’s not about serving the folks back home anymore. He has visions of chairmanships, VP nominations, and a fat K Street paycheck dancing in his empty head. 

DICK Burr is useless.  He’s a disgrace.  He is government waste and overreach personified.  I have Winston-area sources who tell me that Burr moans privately about how the Senate is no fun anymore.  Now that his BFF Saxby Chambliss is leaving the Senate, Burr is reportedly mulling doing the same thing in 2016.  If his heart is no longer in the job, DICK Burr needs to quit now.  Let someone else step in who is really interested in serving the people of North Carolina.

It appears that Burr is intent on spending the next three years screwing us over, saddling us with The Ruling Class agenda and six years of Senator Thom Tillis.

  1. Richard Burr is not only a useful idiot for Harry Reid, but he is auditioning for K Street. He wants a job there in 2016 rather than another term in the Senate, so he does more to serve K Street than he does to serve the voters back home. I don’t know which of our Senators is more disgusting – Hagan or Burr. They are both awful.

    But Burr is hardly the only member of the Useful Idiot Caucus on the GOP side of the aisle. Others who regularly advance Harry Reid’s goals include Lindsay Graham, John McCain, Jeff Flake, Lamar Alexander, John Hoeven, and the chief Useful Idiot of them all, Mitch McConnell.

  2. I’ll tell you what we’ve learned Senator Burr. We’ve learned that you are a Spinless #RINOsaur of the highest order. You have stolen from the American people by closing the offices we pay for, offering no access for the constituents we pay you to serve. You obviously have no tolerance for Principled Conservatism and are obviously jealous of anyone who is, stooping as low to call them names, all the while once again voting in lockstep with Kay Hagan.
    I leave readers with two questions:
    1) Richard Burr is helping Thom TILLIS navigate the DC GOPe- exactly who will Thom Tillis palling around with Burr/Rove et al benefit? I say we will have more of the same, another elitist coward who refuses to listen to or represent the people of NC.
    2) What is it going to take for NCGOP to do something about Richard Burr? He has thumbed his nose at the party platform and at his base. He has hidden from his constituents making time to satisfy the needs of liberal MSM.

    Conservatives in NC are fed up with having no representation in DC, we have the voters and we know how to work. #2014 Bring It On
