Continuing Resolution W/O Obamacare Funding?

Posted by Tina

Robert Costa of National Review informs the GOP in the House is “preparing to vote on a continuing resolution that simultaneously funds the federal government and defunds Obamacare”.

The final decision will be announced by leadership after Wednesday’s Republican conference meeting.

They apparently have a plan “B” planned knowing the chances are slim to none in the Senate…TIME TO CALL, FAX, AND EMAIL OUR SENATORS!

    The House is the most worthless body of government today. They are pathetic. They make $174,000 a year, get the best medical coverage available and they work 126 days a year. And on those rare 126 days, they can’t bother to accomplish anything. Boehner is a disgrace. They should not have gone on vacation in August, and they should not be going on vacation again until they get some work done. Real Americans who don’t get 239 days off this year are struggling and they don’t even care.

      Princess…we agree. No business I have ever known in my entire life could operate as ineffectively as the House and Senate and not be forced into bankrupcy before the year was up. Most of these legislators are a bunch of self-centered dolts who have lost connection with the people and their reason for being in Congress. Instead, they are living the good life and blowing through tax money like it was theirs and it was infinite. As somebody, I think Churchill, once said, “They go in as beer drinkers and come out as champagne sippers.”

    What good is it to spend all that time writing and then voting on a bill that they know doesn’t have a chance in hell of passing?

    • Post Scripts says:

      Chris these sort of bills are generally called “statement bills.” There is litte to no chance of them passing, but by articulating points of objections to the opposing legislation already passed they hope to go on record and possibly gain some influence down the road with an “I told you so!” Obamacare is so fraught with hidden costs, costs overruns and unknown costs, not to mention the sheer size of it in red tape, socialism and big government you have to know that there is no way in Hell the republicans are going to roll over and accept it. Imagine you were one of them, just for a moment, and you’re facing what you absolutely believe is the worst piece of legislation ever to grow government and threaten our economy…wouldn’t you be inclined to do exactly what they are doing?

    I don’t agree. I think it CAN pass, but only if we get behind it and support Mike Lee and Ted Cruz.

    The message has to be clear, EVERYTHING gets funded EXCET ObamaCare. It will be in the hands of the Senate to pass it or Harry Reid and the Democrat controlled Senate will be the ones responsible for shutting down the government.

    The majority of people (liberal and conservative) don’t want it, because they’ve seen the jobs lost, work hours cut, premium increases and now companies are dropping health care coverage completely.

    It’s the elected representatives primary responsibility to do the will of the people. If Democrats are in a red state or purple county their jobs may be on the line if they don’t listen to them. And I don’t think they’ll be willing to take that chance.

    Don’t forget the influence of the unions too that have now turned against Obama. They’ll be telling their members they got stabbed in the back after going all out to get him and the Congress Dems elected. The unions are loosing members and members are loosing their health care. Double whammy.

    Instead of saying it can’t happen everyone should sign the Unfund ObamaCare petition and support Lee and Cruz who are fighting for us against Boehner, McCain, Graham and the rest of the old guard, who have been rolling over and letting the Dems just have what they want.

    An ABC reporter even gets that Obama will be responsible for not even

    ABC News Reporter Calls Out Jay Carney During Tense Back-and-Forth Over Looming Obamacare Showdown:

    “House Republicans on Wednesday promised to pass legislation that would prevent a partial government shutdown and avoid a historic national default while simultaneously canceling out President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Obama swiftly condemned the effort as attempted political extortion, and the Republican-friendly Chamber of Commerce pointedly called on lawmakers to pass urgent spending and borrowing legislation – unencumbered by debate over “Obamacare.”

    Back in the press conference, Karl asked if the White House was “giving up” in the negotiations and refusing to talk to Republicans.

    “Are you actually talking to Republicans?” he asked, even if he believes his opponents are “unreasonable” in their pursuits.

    “The president’s position is, he will not negotiate over the debt ceiling,” Karl pressed.

    “Correct,” Carney replied.

    “How is that tenable?” Karl shot back, adding that it’s practically “threatening default” by the White House.

    Oops, sorry about the unfinished sentence. Just put a period after responsible.

  6. Chris says:

    Jack, as if Republicans aren’t already “on record” as opposing Obamacare? It didn’t get a single Republican vote. They’ve already voted to repeal it 40 times. Do they really think there are people out there who don’t get the message? America doesn’t want any more “symbolic” votes, we want something real done.
