Skip to comments.Ted Cruz Opposes Eric Cantor and Pete Sessions’ “Hug It Out” Plan to Fund Obamacare
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 Washingtonof both partiesare 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 entirelyexcept Obamacareand 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, dont 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.
Cantor, you piece of swhit.
Ted Cruz is right over the target.
Obamas interest in invading non-enemy Syria has nothing to do with Syria, poison gas, or children.
Obamas 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 Obamacare/Boehnerkare.
Obamas Red Herring for the 9-11 Benghazi Massacre Coverup was Susan Rices fake Video story.
Obamas Red Herring for distracting Congress until Obamacare/ Boehnerkare kicks in October 1 is Obamas 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 Obamas 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.
Texas ping please! Pete Sessions is a player for socialized, single payer medical coming atcha. He needs a TEXAS Tea blizzard on the horn.
Cantor has lost all credibility. His RINO ass needs to be primaried.
Obamas 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 Obamacare
Pete Sessions, Bonehead and Cantor are as corrupt as they come.
Obamacare gets lost on the Syria dog whistle.
Look over here! No, wait, look over here!
You are sooo right.
They are exceptionally slimy scum.
Yes he is. While tough, we need to send reinforcements.. I hope to do so in 2014...
I hope he can hold tough till then.
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)
Finally somebody is speaking plainly and saying what we’re all thinking:
Cut the stupid appearances, buck up, and do what we sent you to DC to do already!
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.
Got call do, RN C tonight. Told them that if they defund Obamacare the money will flow. The guy said he understood and thanked me.
Ted can’t do it alone.
Light up those phone lines!
I’m done with the stupid party..
You want money from me? Go to my payment department. Her name is Helen Wait..
I’ll give money directly to who I think will do what I want them to.
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.
