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.
Some Republicans do not want their gravy train to end. 2012 means we really should make sure we retire the RINOS and put solid conservatives in. They will be fighting us every step of the way; but it has to be done.
See post 53.
We can flush all we want but unless the Republican Party establishment is destroyed, don't expect any conservative movement or agenda to survive intact.
Rush was talking about this today on his show.... Basically he is saying that Republicans are trying to use the rules committee to say we will play fair unlike the Democrats did when they were in charge....
I don’t see how we can continue to waste money on a program that is clearly unconstitutional in its entirety as expressed by a Federal Judge.
So what? The GOP can make the House rules. Obamacare was brought in with parliamentary tricks, it could be destroyed the same way. Wake up, the GOP is trying to keep us on the plantation as well.
So I take it they must pass a special bill to defund it? Certainly congress has that power... better yet, hold a vote to eliminate that rule. What does that buy is, or is too late to change rules this session?
A bigger problem is that Boehner promised MANY times last year to defund it if Republicans won the house. That looks bad.
Thank you for being sensible, unlike the alarmist who posted this thread.
BREAKING NEWS!!! A House Rules Committee Tries to Trump Rule of Law!
I wish I had a good 18 day to go protest in DC but I don’t and will probably find many able to dedicate this amount of time and effort however, Twitter and Facebook seems like the right places to get a government protest movement started....
The idea we're playing with is taking a couple hours and going downtown to your own city hall on the same day as millions of others. That would send quite a message. If we could get the message out on facebook and twitter so much the better.
Then the effing republican party idiots wonder why we don’t contribute to them any more. We need to clean house BIG TIME in Washington. No more democrats. No more RINOs. All of them have to go. There are but a handfull of principaled conservatives out there. The rest need to be unemployed quickly.
This is why primaries REALLY matter.
I think I know why Boner cries all the time - he’s got his head so far up his a%% that the smell is bringing a tear to his eye.
John Boehner, if Your reading this, Get a Backbone and ptu your foot up this Rules Committee’s Butts! This is Outrageous! DEFUND THE WHOLE UNCONSTITUTIONAL ABORTION TOTALLY AND RIGHT NOW!!!!
I just phone Rep. Dreier’s office and told the young lady who answered that I am disappointed and that being from CA, I would remember his vote and would not vote for him for statewide office. I also said that if he didn’t offer an alternative to the Democrats there was no reason for him to be in office or for the Republican Party to exist.
” What a bunch of bums. “
What a bunch of TRAITOROUS WHORES
Lousy Haughty was horrible when she was my congressturd. She was horribly, wholly arrogant. A real piece of sh**, that one.
Basically, Rush has been carrying water for the Republican Party all his life and it's hard for him to put the bucket down. Not long ago he had Karl Rove sitting in for him on a day off. Karl Rove!!! The 'moderate' who led Bush and the Republican Party to hell in a handbasket, and the moron who scorns the Tea Party. Hey, I like Rush, but he's been a Republican too long, and as brilliant as he is, he's a tad naive about the Republicans. He wants to believe the best, which blinds him from the truth. MOST of the Republicans are indeed RINOS, (moderates), while Rush thinks it's just a few. My bet is that in the near future the Tea Party will actually become a HIGHLY legitimate Third Party, and the Republican Party and Karl Marx Rove will become the non-entities. We'll see where Rush goes.
I share your frustration. This is the problem with settling for a RINO instead of fighting for a real conservative.
Our only hope is for the us in the Tea Party to completely take over the GOP. The ones there now pay us lip service and then shoot us in the back. Dealing with Dims instead of RINOs is almost easier — at least then you know the enemy that is in front of you, instead of behind you with a knife.
These people need to hear from us NOW.
And whenever the RNC sends me letters begging for $$$, I send them a letter explaining exactly why I am not going to give them one single penny, and where my campaign dollars are going (to real conservatives’ campaigns directly).
I agree that we must hold Republicans accountable, but I detest your ad hominem attacks on Speaker Boehner.... How do you fall for those DU and Daily Kos talking points? or are you just Trolling FR? In any event maybe offering some clear points on battling the entire entitlement nightmare that Liberals have created in the USA.
We need more than a flippin' peaceful protest. Let's take a page out of the 'rat's rule book and next time we go to Washington, let's start breaking things. And people if they get in our way. It's time to raise things up a notch. I'm sick of this sh#t!
What evidence do you have for these personal attacks? I know I've never seen any credible evidence that this is the case.
Free Republic is not a place to pass false hyper-partisan, personal gossip or disgusting liberal talking points.
Put up some evidence or STFU.
As I see it, we’re between a rock and a hard place. If we jettison the GOP and vote for a third party candidate in 2012, Obama wins a second term. Simple as that.
If Sarah wins the nomination, of course, we can all vote Republican with a clear conscience.
As Gerald Celente of Trends Research Institute often says, and I agree, "We don't have a two party system. What we have is a two-headed one party system that is corrupt."
Thanks, will check it now.
I took a different route. I said send me the bill, yes - I waited for the supervisor and confirmed...blah blah blah...will pay quickly....blah blah blah...when it came I tore it up and trashed it before I even got back to the house from the mailbox...they lie to me - I lied to them.
Well, he DOES tend to cry, far more often for comfort.
We don't need no stinkin' evidence. All we need is emotion and we gots lots of emotion to bash everyone that doesn't say and think exactly like us for they are all RINOs and must be kicked out of office and strung up on a pole and spend eternity in that hot place at the center of the earth.
Nothing has changed with the old back room Republican set.
November 2010 meant nothing at all to those bastards.
He is just playing the blame game. Every time he misses another forcast, he says the government did something that he didn't forcast throwing his forcast off.
Did any of us expect anything different, honestly, we’re doomed.
What we really need is a Conservative leader out front on a daily basis countering Obama and explaining to the American moderates that exactly what caused this debt mess is the Liberal Marxist model of entitlements, Obamacare being the most recent, this coupled with an unfair tax code that allows lower income earners to be bought off with what amount to political bribes offered by Democrats and that these bribes which take the forms of taxes and over regulation are always passed down from the rich onto the backs of the great Middle Class in this country in the form of consumer cost increases and excise taxes.
But where is the next great Conservative communicator?
I don't know about your state, but here in Utah - we flushed the Republican establishment out. We replaced RINOs with Conservatives - next flush will be Hatch and his cronies.
Even though the entire thing has been tossed out by a judge as unconstitutional. This ruling is their risk free way out of the entire mess.
I'm afraid there's more at play here than repubs simply standing by the rules.
Egypt has shown us the way! It’s time to roll out our community organizers and hit the streets!
That does NOT make him an alcoholic.
Fer cryin' out loud...
Wow such harsh ad hominem attacks on RINO’s..... So if you feel this passionatley about RINO’s.... How do you feel about the Marxists that actually caused all this mess in the first place? If you remember correctly, this group of RINO’s at least stood firm with the true Conservatives against the Obama agenda prior to the NOV 2nd thumping. Sure we should hold them accountable but save your name calling for the idiot Progressives that are intentionally destroying this great nation.
That should be the new Tea Party call to action Conservative community organizers.....
Tea Party Powers activate....
We have GOT to stop this “shoot first, ask questions later” mentality.
It’s totally understandable (and I am guilty myself) but we’re just blowing up at everything these days.
Once you see the facts, it isn’t as bad as it seems. Sure, we have to keep the heat on (and slowly turn it up) but let’s save our fury for where it’s needed.
I owe you any apology, Typical_Whitey.
I confused you with someone else on this thread.
I am sorry for my post.
I honestly thought (in hinesite) that the U.S. supreme court injustices that did roe v. wade should be dragged out and shot as wannabe tyrants.
Now I’m convinced they should simply be ignored and the Federal agents that attempt to enforce their edict should be arrested and if at last necessary shot by State forces like any common criminal resisting arrest with arms while attempting thief, kidnapping, or blackmail.
So now we are going to be forced to fund an unconstitutional bill?
LOL. Does that mean the taxpayers get their money back if the Supreme Court upholds the lower court ruling?
This is Boehner’s FB page
During the current discussion on the floor, each representative begins his remarks with, “I move to strike the last word.” Does anyone know what that means in this context?
Got to remember while the new house may clam to be on our side they are Federal offices. We are talking about Their power here just as we are also talking about OUR liberty...
At the end of the day politicians are by nature predisposes to choose their power over our liberty.
Sounds like we need a Million Man Tea Party Rally in Washington.
