Boehner Live Blogging Budget Debate – Good or Who Cares?

The House Republican leader – John Boehner from Ohio’s Eighth if you did not know – announced that tomorrow’s budget debate would be live-blogged during the session so people can be kept up-to-date.

Maybe they will try the application that I want to use for my first session, coveritlive.com? Maybe I’ll take the day off and live blog the live blogging? Doubt it.

Anyway, these budget sessions are notorious for being long and boring. Heck, most of what congress does in session or in committee – unless they are questioning a baseball star – is boring. Depending on what’s going on, this option may be a good recap or it can be a complete bust if they post every minute detail.

Budget Battle: Boehner Announces GOP Leader’s Website Will “Live-Blog” Budget Debate Tomorrow
Washington, Mar 4 –
House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today announced that tomorrow’s House Budget Committee debate on the FY 2009 federal budget will be “live-blogged” on the Republican Leader’s website. The Committee will begin consideration of the budget at 10:30am tomorrow, and the Leader’s blog will provide regular updates on its progress, including votes on key amendments, throughout the day. The up-to-the-minute budget coverage – dubbed “Budget Buzz” – will be available beginning at 10:30am at http://republicanleader.house.gov/Blog.

It’s my hope that we can get more members of congress to understand their oath of office and the entitlement programs are stopped dead. Not just a slight reduction, but stopped dead. Bring power back to the states and local governments.
