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.
There truly is only one political party in America, with the democrats leaning a little more left than the other guys.
You are right and I don’t think anyone is exploding but this is an indication that the heat needs to be increased. I will be ‘exploding’ (sounding like it) on the phone with the various committee members.
We need to decimate the RINOs in the primaries. F@#K the estatelishment and Karl “Turd Blossom” Rove.
WTF are they doing? WTF are they Thinking?
I was about to.
Thank you for posting that link.
“The House Rules Committee”
do we know who voted how?
Winning The Future with obama.
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.
Grow a pair, you bums, and get out there and defund this turkey RIGHT NOW!!!!
Thank you for the link. Here is the email contact -
Phone number next, and then the names of these folks, so that we can reach out and touch them ; }
May God give us strength.
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.
Their healthcare and the rest of Washington does not have to be the same as ours.
Let's all go Egyptian.
Thank you for inserting some common sense.
Rush is addressing it right now

Mark now which turds are still circling the bowl.
Pete Sessions, figures the one that forgot to take his oath on time.
SURPRISE...looks like the new Republicans are like the old ones...I am at a point that unless they become what most of us thought we were electing to never vote for another one.
I fail to see any difference than this from dems other than degree for all the difference that makes...
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.
Thank you for additional confirmation Laz
According to earlier reports, Rep. Virginia Foxx was the ringleader.
Not good. Trying to remember the name of the person in charge of the rules committee. Maybe David Dryer? Not sure of the spelling.
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 ; }
We got guys sleeping in the mud dodging IEDs in Afghanistan, and these guys, sipping cocktails in their leather chairs, can't muster the 'courage' to vote FOR the Constitution?!
Why wait until dawn?
I really don't like option number 2.
