Ted Cruz Opposes Eric Cantor and Pete Sessions’ “Hug It Out” Plan to Fund Obamacare
Red State ^ | September 10, 2013 | Erick Erickson

Posted on 09/10/2013 7:47:29 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Multiple people confirm to me that just a few hours ago Pete Sessions blew up about Ted Cruz and made sure everyone in the room knew he held Cruz in absolute contempt.

It might be because Ted Cruz just called BS on Eric Cantor and Pete Sessions trying to screw conservatives.

Cantor and Sessions are pursuing a plan to make it very easy for the House to vote for defunding Obamacare while ensuring Obamacare is still able to get funded. Cruz, in a press release earlier today, called on the House of Representatives to not get cute and actually defund Obamacare.

“Last night, news reports surfaced that the House of Representatives might vote to ‘defund Obamacare’ in a way that easily allows Senate Democrats to keep funding Obamacare. If House Republicans go along with this strategy, they will be complicit in the disaster that is Obamacare.

“The American people are not surprised that politicians in Washington–of both parties–are afraid to take a stand. But another symbolic vote against Obamacare is meaningless. Obamacare is the biggest job killer in America, and people are hurting.

“House Republicans should pass a continuing resolution that funds government in its entirely–except Obamacare–and that explicitly prohibits spending any federal money, mandatory or discretionary, on Obamacare. They should not use any procedural chicanery to enable Harry Reid to circumvent that vote.

“If you oppose Obamacare, don’t fund Obamacare. Our elected leaders should listen to the American people.”

You too should tell Pete Sessions and Eric Cantor to stop playing games with the lives of Americans. They need to defund Obamacare, not just pretend to.

Obama’s interest in invading non-enemy Syria has nothing to do with Syria, poison gas, or children.

Obama’s interest in bombing non-enemy Syria has everything to do with creating a long-lasting, controversial, DISTRACTION for Congress in order to keep Congress from defunding Obama”care”/Boehnerkare.

Obama’s “Red Herring” for the 9-11 Benghazi Massacre Coverup was Susan Rice’s fake Video story.

Obama’s “Red Herring” for distracting Congress until Obama”care”/ Boehnerkare kicks in October 1 is Obama’s “Crossing HIS personal Red Line” distraction speech.

Obama speaks only for Obama, not the US Federal Government or America.

REMEMBER BENGHAZI !

_____________________________________

“Jellyfish Spine” Boehner as Speaker of the House is essential to Obama’s continued unchallenged destruction of the US Constitution.

Nothing will change as long as cave-in artists Boehner and Cantor are in leadership roles in the US House of Representatives.

If Boehner is replaced as Speaker with a fighter such as Col. Allen West, then the Articles of Impeachment for B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, can be quickly issued.

The problem is not with Obama, as he is just doing what Communist Tyrants are trained to do.

The problem is not with Boehner, as he loves to lose and wallow in the disgrace of being the worst Speaker of the House, EVER.

The problem lies with our sorry, spineless, RINOs in the House who refuse to replace Boehner with a proven fighter.

BTW, the members of the House can choose anybody to be their Speaker, even if that person is not a current Member of the House.

Tick-tock, long-time House RINOs, tick-tock - - - - .

No repub votes in the House of (our) Representatives for this bill.

As it unwinds, we are seeing companies, small business, insurers and providers doing gymnastics to avoid it’s many repercussions.

Public opinion has always been against.

What’s not to reject outright. Flip this crap into the harbor and we’ll work it out from there.

Turn off the AC, put your feet on the ground and smell the bacon.

But hiring is up!

(never mind the fact that the bulk of it (did I hear 90+ %) is part time and is likely due to cutting back full timers to part time)

I think it is a matter of America holding tough.
If we roll the bones on this one, we could get further in the hole on the Senate.

America has a decision to make.

The way the rinos attack Cruz, including Graham on CNN tonight, shows they don’t give a damn what the people want. They know voting to fund obamacare will hurt them so they figure out a way to vote to defund it while making sure it’s funded. They were against it before they were for it.

Even if Boehner goes the GOPe will put in Cantor, the GOP has always been an “it’s their turn” kind of thing.

We've got to burn the phone lines up to let them know we're onto them. That's why Pete Sessions got so angry at Ted Cruz. Cruz pulled the covers off his little treason in public.

Wow. Cantor and Sessions are not only cowards, they are sneaky scumbags.
Of course, they exempted themselves from Mengelecare, so why should they care about the rest of us?
