TUESDAY MIDDAY--- BREAKING NEWS ON OBAMACARE REPEAL:
The House Rules Committee has rejected Rep. Steve King's proposal to FULLY DEFUND ObamaCare, failing to agree to "protect" King's amendment when it comes to the House floor.
Bottom line -- Republicans on the Rules Committee refused to play hardball to fully defund ObamaCare. By doing so, they are allowing Pelosi's "mandatory" self-funding provisions -- which many say are unconscionable if not unconstitutional -- to stand! This will force this Congress to approve most of the funding for ObamaCare.
FoxNews says King's provision would "cripple all government operations devoted to executing the health law."
DEBATE BEGINS THIS AFTERNOON.
Sorry to post and run but have to get back to work.
Not much surprises me anymore.
This doesn’t either.
Does anyone still think traitors to the United States shouldnt be shot at dawn?
I remember when Muslims in China were protesting, running around yelling and causing chaos and I thought, “The Chinese will round up all of those fools and shoot them at dawn, and not look back!”.
And here we are...
I'm afraid its all up to the freshmen and the few GOP veterans who haven't been co-opted.
Some confirmation on Red State.
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
I don’t know the details, but Repubs are seeming COMPLETELY UNIMPRESSIVE.
This is why gov’t dept of education, hhs, commerce, etc., etc., etc., just keep getting bigger every year and if they went away tomorrow no one would notice. They do nothing productive but continue to grow and add employees.
Our dear Congress is IN BED WITH HEALTH INDUSTRY, BOTH PARTIES IT MAKES ME SICK. Yes, we need to have healthcare, but this is DISGUSTING. the industry is a giant money-sucking creature that wants the gubmit to force every citizen to anty up HALF OF WHAT YOU MAKE FOR DOCTOR’N. THAT IS COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY AND IDIOTIC - IT MAKES NO SENSE.
What a bunch of bums.
What are we supposed to do, Soothe? I completely agree, but discussing any sort of plans for another Lexington and Concord gets you put on the terrorist watch list and your life ruined. I would die for this country, as many have done before me, but the number of people like me is dwindling in favor of Facebook, Twitter, satellite TV, diet soda, and take out Chinese.
Americans no longer want to face hard facts or work through difficult decisions. They want want Europe’s had for the last 100 years. How’s that turned out?
Rush darkly warned about this last week.
Its call the RinoCrat Oligarchy for a reason...be very wary...
How can a Court ruled un-Constitutional law be placed in the budget bill and funded?
Our GOV is failing us in a bad way. Time to go all Egypt on thier a$$es?
Who is on the Rules committee?
Sometimes you just gotta flush twice.
We will all pull the lever again in under 2 years. Apparently, the messege that was sent has been forgotten.
See SOC’s post 10
"The committee determined the measure violated House rules against members "legislating" on appropriations bills. However, a committee member reminded Rep. King that he has "lots of other opportunities" to offer a similar amendment to other bills this year."
I haven’t been able to follow this, but I’d bet the establishment RINO’s are behind this. The Dems can depend upon their Leftist RINO buddies to cover their game.
