Just sayin! :)
If only the GOP House leadership had a spine...
THAT'S the question.
I don't hold much hope.
Boner’s in tears about this right now.
Yep. Block federal funding to local governments first, to turn the tide back toward fiscal conservatism. Or the slide toward socialism will continue even more quickly.
They may have a “mandate”but they won’t use it.Just listen to John Boehner.He’s surrendering already.
Boner needs to be reminded of how and why he became speaker. I hope the Tea Party takes control of the house. Primary every one of them. Then if a few make dumb statements the true conservatives will rule the house.
All of this is IF America survives to another election and if that election is fair.
So Obama will issue Executive Orders to do what he wants. His press will sing his praises for doing it and blame obstructionist Republicans. His Democrat cohorts will back him. His judges will not find that he has violated the Constitution and will enforce his mandates.
So Plan B would be what?
I wouldn’t count on it.
They will never do it. There is no courage in the GOP. We are on our own.
“By retaining house, GOP has mandate to block all funding and legislation”
You obviously misstook this bunch for how the dems handled things in 06 when they took over. I fondly recall Her Highness Pelousy saying they would not cooperate with Bush one iota on Social Security reform because he was never going to get her to let him take credit for helping that system.
As long as the GOP continues to be spineless....I will not give them a dime and voting for their candidates who are party hacks is over!!
Make ‘em fight for every inch. Never give in, never give up.
King Obama will force a change in term limits for the President.
Oh, how cute.
Bonner has already said he will go along with tax increases and obamaCare.........
A simple defunding of ObamaCare provisions should essentially kill it.
That, and several states voting not to participate.
That, and several credible Christian organizations, businesses and charities suing to avoid the mandate.
I remain hopeful that Obamacare, as “passed” (wink wink), will not be the law of the land. Parts of it, yes. But not the whole stinking enchilada.
Barely retaining the house...losing what will be 16 seats kills any block they can put up...Obama will run over them.
YOU ARE ALL FOOLS if you think the Congress has any power to do anything.
OSAMA Obama just bypasses the entire systems by Presidential Directives and instituting laws, policies etc..
The only mandate Boehner has embraced is crying and caving.
DO NOT COMPLY
Boehner is only the messenger. It wouldn't matter if Moses had the job.
Good luck with that. Bonehead and Cantor love to cut deals...any deal
no matter how bad. Bonehead has already signaled his willingness to deal.
The rest of the GOP members are to stupid to remove him.
Senate can’t have 3 Kings....Obama has one of them. So that’s why I lost all the time.
I am getting tired of everyone accusing the GOP of being “spineless”! They are not “spineless”, they are Democrats who go by another name to give us the illusion that we have a choice, but they certainly are not spineless!!!
If the roles were reversed and the Democrats were in this situation. They would be relentless. I envy them for this. Now Bonehead and the boys? I’ll believe it when I see it.
You gots to be kidding right?
And if they do show a spine the RATs can use Executive Orders blessed by their Senate to bypass the House all to gather to do whatever they want. Haven't you been watching the last 4 years?
So what should they do? Give in, or fight?
