Posted on 07/27/2012 8:34:49 PM PDT by Free in Texas
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated Thursday that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives that he leads may go ahead and provide the Obama administration with the funding it needs to implement a regulation that earlier this year Boehner himself called "an unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country."
At a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, Boehner said he believes "resolving" the regulation's attack on religious liberty may not be something for Congress to deal with because he thinks it may be one of those policy goals that "can sometimes best be done [through] other than legislative avenues."
Boehner did not explain what those "other than legislative avenues" may be. However, whether or not the Obama administration can actually carry out the regulation depends entirely on whether or not Boehner's Republican-majority House votes to give the administration the money to do it. If the Republican-majority House prohibits spending any money to implement the regulation in whatever legislation that funds the government after Sept. 30, the administration cannot implement it.
Boehner's House can stop what Boehner called an "attack on religious freedom," or it can give Presdient Obama the money to launch the attack.

OK... the GOP really is dead
The putz should be sent Uzbekistan, they’re short a couple of idiots.
Boner looks like he’s been hitting the bottle pretty hard. Time for a maverick to come in and challenge him for the good of whats left of the party.
Boehner needs to go. He is no leader in these critical times.
Mr. Boehner, you are a lackey of the Devil. You are a writhing worm in the dirt.
You are a disgrace to America.
How can a limp No-Balls Boner remain erect without a spine?
I just can’t figure it out.
Can he be recalled? Can there be a vote of ‘no confidence’?
For his lack of usefulness, he might as well be a Dem!
To even consider this course of action, yes they really are dead. And they have no souls.
He has not been a leader since day one as Speaker.
Wusses out the first chance he gets on EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING.
Keep trusting the RINOs, you RomneyBOTs.
THEY FULLY INTEND TO DELIVER OBAMACARE, TARP and SHARIA.
Don’t worry people, Romney will save us. /s
Please tell me the Republicans fully intend to flush this turd Boehner down the toilet..
This Schmedrik has got to be put out to pasture.
I hope Paul Ryan challenges him for the Leadership of the House and enough of our guys back him...true change has to come to the Republicans or we’re just a lighter version of the democrats!
The totally artificial, irrational linkage of health insurance with employment has to be severed. There should be no such thing as “benefits.” They are a creature of an irrational, corrupt tax code.
