Eric Cantor Already Scheduled House Vote on ObamaCare's FULL REPEAL
Reaganite Republican ^ | June 28, 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 06/28/2012 10:59:23 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican

First week after August recess...

Obama and his congressional minions swore back in 2008/09 'you will not see your taxes increase one single dime'- and they never would have got this leviathan passed on the Hill had they been even slightly more honest about it.

So consider this- some (like former AG Alberto Gonzales) even think Roberts/SCOTUS just handed the election to Romney- as the Court cannot be labelled as biased to the Right now -no way- and the truth has at long-last come out: ObamaCare is the largest tax increase in the history of the US -nay, the world.

This is good: Eric Cantor has already scheduled a House vote sot that all the congressional reps can stand up and say whether they support the biggest tax increase ever... or not. Trouble for them is, all the ones who did help pass it in the first place said it wasn't. How very inconvenient for them... just two months prior to the election. If anything can inspire the TEA Party to 2009's level of energy and protest, this might be it- and last time we got out there and fought, the Dems got trounced.

We'll have to wait a couple months for that spectacle... as for today, pop some popcorn and watch Eric Witholder get put on the grill, that'll take the wind out of the Bolshevik Boy Wonder's sails...

BTW, Fox just reported that Mitt Romney took-in $1M in donations since 11am already...

The Supreme Court found Obamacare's individual mandate is a TAX.







Time for a TEA Party Fourth of July.

Locate your nearest TEA Party group and GO!

I hate to bust your dream of repeal.
But this is just a “show” vote.

It would have to pass the senate, which it won’t
and then be signed by Zero.

Good luck on that.

Good. Obviously it is going nowhere until Obami is kicked out. But good anyway.

There might be more success after the election if we get a few more Senate seats. I really don’t think my moderate Democrat friend (all 2 of them) really don’t know what they’re into. Both have elderly parents still alive. Funny, they are both lawyers, but not terribly interested in politics.

Good for Eric Cantor. This should pass the House and will put the Senate in an awkward position. Those Senators that do not pass will have been supportive of a TAX increase on all Americans rich or poor. This will not go over good for those Democratic Senators in their bid for reelection. It might convince a few RINO Republicans to be very very very careful.

Fine. This has to be done.

But it is largely symbolic and political. And somewhat misleading.

Dems in conservative districts will vote against Obamacare until they have to cast a vote to override Obama. Then they’ll vote for it.

What matters is who voted for it the first time.

Sadly, no. The Senate (read: Reid) will simply treat it as if it doesn't exist. No debate, no vote.

It is a symbolic vote only because Reid will NEVER allow it to come up for vote in the Senate.

A show vote is still a positive direction for the campaign regardless.

Ol’ Harry wouldn’t allow it to come to a vote regardless.

They’ve always had the ability to DEFUND THE ENTIRE POS OBAMACARE.

I would also DEFUND the Supreme Court of the United States while they’re at it.

They need to keep going till the federal gubbermint is one percent it’s current size.

It dosen't matter. The Liberals and the media know it was a lie and if anyone was fooled, well then tough snot. The Right knew it was a lie but failed to convince the fooled or the uncaring. Obama, Pilosi and company were hailed as courageous law givers.

Now court has made the mandate a tax. Rare does a body of politicians ever eradicate a tax. This mess is here to stay. It is disgraceful, but it is the law and its of the presidents choosing so it will be enforced..

Yeah...a symbolic gesture fer sure...maybe you could stamp your foot adamantly too.

If you mean business, attach repeal to each and every bill you send out the door.

ALL of them including the hiway and student loan reauthorizations.

We might believe you are serious...

If only we could repeal also the new constitutional precedent set today that Fedzilla’s power to tax both activity and non-activity is total. The devastation this precedent will ultimately do to our Republic makes the wreckage of ObamaCare shrink to insignificance.

We, the people should defund it, by refusing to allow any further payroll deductions until this POS is removed from office. This is taxation without representation and we should revolt, if we don’t we deserve what we get.

Problem is it doesn’t kick in until 2014 so the public will not be feeling its effects till after the election

The GOP has to show how much of an impact it will be with numbers in their campaign ads

Uh, that’s not exactly a revelation... I guess you didn’t bother to read the post?

Everybody knows that. The idea is make Dems VOTE FOR a TAX INCREASE they told us didn’t exist... 2 mos before the election

The Dems told every town hall they held ‘NO TAX INCREASE’... smart for the GOP to haul ‘em out on the carpet now, no?

Now you are talking the real truth.

Unfortunately, they won’t hold the line to defund it.
After all, that would mean fighting the RATS.

It will also give Moderate RATS a chance to vote for it, as well. U know, the RATS who are in a tight election in 2012.
So it gives cover for these RATS, as well.

People in NJ don't care how many times Lautenberg and Menendez vote to raise their taxes. Menendez is up for re-election, watch what they do.

And you think having this show vote, where moderate RATS
in tight races are going to vote against it?
No, they will vote to repeal, as well. So, where does that
gain an advantage in the election?

And the Senate. Maybe if you write a nice letter to Dirty
Harry, he will bring it up for a vote in the Senate.

I’d like to change the name of the upcoming vote in the house from repealing Obamacare to:

The Incumbent Protection Vote.

Doesn’t matter if you are a RAT or RINO.
You can vote against Obamacare and use it in your campaign.
And help yourself remain an entrenched DC Incumbent.

I think the House of Representatives should bring this up for a vote, pass it and send it over to the Senate every 2 weeks. Let the country watch the Senate Dems vote it down every 2 weeks til the election.

Maybe he will write a letter in all caps to show he really means it.

Many here were accused of belonging to the tinfoil hat crowd, there is no joy in having been right about these traitors. Now that Roberts has revealed himself, don’t it just make you feel all good inside, that he is so young.

Bushites should be really proud.

God help us, for surely there is none other.

Showboating isn’t relevant,if we get used to a Republican party that passes symbolic measures then we’ll get more of the same when they hold the Senate and the House.Leave the political circus to the Liberals.

The whole healthcare thing is based on the European model,it is practiced in Japan and in .the former British colonies.Neither Japan or Europe can afford it,I doubt Canada will have much more luck with the NHS.

In the short term,the Republicans will take the Senate and the House.It is unlikely that Europe or California will stop sinking into the abyss of their own making.At such it is not a viable lifestyle to copy.

Empty gestures at this point mean nothing,there is a need for leadership that is willing to change things in a way that affects people on the street not just the perceptions of those who follow the news.

He knows it isn't going to lead to repeal, it is to put the Rep's on record.

The Democrats now have to defend a massive new tax.

And which democrats are going to defend it?
The ones in safe democrat districts. Yes.

The democrats in moderate districts (the ones we are trying to beat) will vote for repeal.

So where do we gain the political advantage?

If the Republicans were serious they would attach the end of withholding to every bill. Make the government come get the money themselves, instead of forcing us submit it every week.

Of course u are right about that.
But if they do that, the GOP will tie up their district
pork projects for their BIG BUSINESS’s. Can’t have that.
District Pork, like the U.S. Mail, Must be delivered in a
timely fashion(Before the election to buy votes)

If some Democrats state they are going to repeal it they are going against their own Party.

The Democrat Party will fracture over this.
