Here is the Steve King - Michele Bachmann Pledge
Fox ^ | 3/11/11 | Bachmann/King

Posted on 03/11/2011 5:05:17 PM PST by pissant

Dear Speaker Boehner, Leader Cantor, and Chairman Rogers,

We very much appreciate your leadership in bringing H.R. 2 to the floor, which resulted in a unanimous Republican vote to repeal ObamaCare. This was an essential step in achieving our universal Republican goal to bring about the final, 100% repeal of this law. No strategy to accomplish this goal could succeed without this House.

From the moment legislation to repeal ObamaCare was first introduced, it has been widely discussed that a successful repeal strategy would center on first winning a Republican majority in the House, then holding a clean, up or down vote on repeal, and then prohibiting funding for the implementation or enforcement of ObamaCare. We must ensure that this strategy remains on track and on schedule.

The success of our effort to shut off funding for ObamaCare will hinge on the leverage points of this first session of the 112th Congress - namely the Cr, which expires on March 18th, and the vote on raising the debt ceiling, We recognize the work to defund ObamaCare began with the inclusion of language in H.R. 1 to restrict annual appropriations from being used to implement the law. However, we also recognize that even this language, if enacted, leaves on the table 105.5 billion in automatically appropriated funds for the law's implementation. We cannot successfully defund ObamaCare without shutting off these automatically appropriated funds.

This is as likely to be defunded as I am to be the President. The E-Publicans will just blather on until we go back to sleep.

I sure hope you’re wrong, but I’m not betting any money.

The “C”s of GOP leadership:
Cringe
Cower
Cooperate
Collaborate
Capitulate
Co-opt
Cave

The chances of Obama care actually being defunded by the GOP ranks right up there with the chances of my winning the lotto. Sad to say, but there you are. The GOP talks a conservative talk, but it walks the progressive walk.

Amazing how much real leadership can come from elected officials if they actually keep their elected positions rather than quitting them.

Perhaps you have been sleeping through just what went on in Wisconsin.

This is happening...Boehner and his good ol' boys have no option but to comply.

It is going to happen one way or another.

I think the “cower” is just for show, but the “cooperate” after they cower IS real.

I agree but just watch for that minority of Republicans who will do everything they can (while preaching conservatism)to prevent it from from happening.

You are right though, what happened in WI with Gov. Walker was epic and it IS going to happen!
