Jeb Bush says GOP should know its limits in Obamacare fight

WASHINGTON — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush cautioned House Republicans on Wednesday to be aware of their limits in the latest fight over funding the government and defunding Obamacare.

House Republicans will vote later this week on a continuing resolution that would fund the government through the end of 2013 and defund the Affordable Care Act to prevent it from being implemented. The Democrat controlled Senate is highly unlikely to vote to defund the healthcare law, and if they take up the bill, they will send it back to the House looking very different. Republicans will then try to muster the votes to pass a clean CR, and kick the fight over Obamacare into the debt ceiling negotiations.

If the House and Senate fail to pass a CR, the government will shut down on October 1.

Asked if the fight to defund Obamacare was worth risking a government shutdown while appearing at an event on education with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Bush said the law was bad, but Republicans should be practical

The Republicans want to keep the government open and shut down Obamacare.

Obama wants to shut down the government to keep Obamacare open.

Former Governor Bush, which side are you on?

Are all Republicans pussies nowadays?

Do they even care to do the will of the people? Do they forget how this was foisted (FOISTED, RAILROADED, RAMRODDED) onto a free people?

The fact that government forces at point of fine and jail every person except pet groups, to buy a private product? Doesn’t get their hackles up?

I tend to think “yes” except maybe Cruz.

Effing pussies, all, save Cruz. They all need to be replaced.

$17 Trillion deficit. $100 Trillion debt. Let’s not act hastily. Somebody’s feelings might get hurt.

“Moderate” Jeb will get the 2016 nomination because the conservatives will split the vote at least 3 ways. Sucks, don’t it?

Inside every Bush there is a Democrat yearning to step out and breathe free.

How French of you, Monsieur Bush. Will the Republicans be allowed to keep Vichy, or should we stay packed and ready to retreat again if the Democrats glare at us.

The WSJ says that the federal Obamacare exchanges will not be ready to open in two weeks because they do not have a pricing structure in place. Of course, it is difficult to set up a pricing structure, when the government has already ruled that applicants do not have to provide proof of employment or salary.

He may have been a good governor for the state of Florida, but he now talks more like a liberal than a Republican. Time to retire, shut your mouth and go away peacefully!!!!!!!!!!!!!
