TUESDAY MIDDAY--- BREAKING NEWS ON OBAMACARE REPEAL:
Grassfire Nation ^ | 02/15/11 | Grassfire Nation via email subscription

Posted on 02/15/2011 11:20:06 AM PST by Outlaw Woman

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.

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...

Its becoming clear where the establishment republicans come down in all this.

I'm afraid its all up to the freshmen and the few GOP veterans who haven't been co-opted.

I don’t know the details, but Repubs are seeming COMPLETELY UNIMPRESSIVE.
YUCK.
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 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?

Before we explode...

"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."

We voted for principled conservatism in November, and all we got was another bunch of lousy RINO’s.

There truly is only one political party in America, with the democrats leaning a little more left than the other guys.

Either the Tea Party has to completely take over the GOP or the GOP has to be forced to become a 3rd party and the Tea Party become the party of conservatism. This is just unconscionable - NEVER BOTHERED PELOSI/REID/OBAMA TO JAM THIS UNCONSTITUTIONAL PIECE OF CRAP DOWN OUR THROATS, and now the GOP is afraid of a GOV SHUT DOWN? GROW A PAIR or get out of our way.

They aren’t thinking. The only hide they want to save is their own. They’re go along to get along, and that’s how we’ve come to this point.

Being a public servant sometimes means having to tell the public something they don’t want to hear. We’re all ready for the next shoe to drop. Get yourself out of debt, stock up on ammo and non-perishable food items, get some 5 gal. drums for water and plenty of purification tablets and get ready to hunker down.

Everyone (in Congress) has been saying its not possible to defund it all at once. It has to be done a piece at a time. I love Steve King, he’s never in the middle of the road.

Our Republican “saviors” have, so far today, proposed defunding the border fence AND funding Obamacare ...

It’s time we wake up ...

BOTH parties are the enemy. The will of the people has been subverted to the will of the political class. There are no saviors in DC.

Our choices are, 1.) Go “egyptian” on them, or 2.) suck it up and join the new world order.

I knew this was going to be the play. It's not their bill or law to own in their minds. "Well, we gave it the good fight" rationale.

Their healthcare and the rest of Washington does not have to be the same as ours.

Let's all go Egyptian.

How would that be different from anything else the GOP is looking to defund in their budget? I mean $100B in seven months has to put an end to more than a few programs.

I am not exploding, but honestly, that quote does nothing to reassure me : / It sounds as if we are being patted on the head, and told not to worry our little selves, that they will get to it in their own good time...

Next post - names and the Rules Committee phone number - they need reminding that there is no time like the present ; }
