Rubio Won’t Support Spending Bill Without Repeal of Obamacare
Newsmax ^ | Friday, 08 Mar 2013 11:36 AM | David Yonkman, Washington Correspondent

Sen. Marco Rubio says he will oppose a six-month government spending measure known as the continuing resolution unless it contains language that essentially repeals Obamacare by removing funding for the healthcare reform law. …

“If … we can pass [the amendment] onto a bill, I will vote for a continuing resolution,” he said. “Even if it’s temporary, because it does something permanent, and that is defund this healthcare bill, this Obamacare bill, that is going to be an absolute disaster for the American economy.” …

Is Rubio politically bi-polar or I am just going through a crazy love -hate relationship.

Filibuster if you have to, Rubio. Rand showed you how to use the tool - use it.

Maybe I’m too cynical, but my BS detector is buzzing.

Attempt to reclaim some of the attention from Senator Paul?

You’re exactly correct...and Rubio remains a RINO and not trustworthy.

Maybe, but if he can make a dent in obamacare, then I don't care what his motives are.

Looks that way. Don't worry though. Senator Rubio's detractors should be over here shortly to remind us that he's nothing but a GOP-e RINO puppet.

So I take it you're against defunding Obamacare? Or are you just simply against Rubio no matter what he does?

Too bad Boehner refused to strip it out.

While I appreciate the stand, Rubio is in a distinct minority. Unless ALL pubbies follow his lead...but he’s a member of the Senate “wackos”, along with Paul and Cruz.

I guess FR, like anyplace else, has mature, rational minds as well as small, immature minds. And that’s not to say those that might disagree with others of us don’t have sound rational basis for doing so. I don’t have a problem with that. But, as is true anywhere, there are those that have no real rational basis for their position - often just fixation and obstinacy.

Since Rubio has sworn to protect and defend the Constitution, why doesn't he mention the following about Obamacare?

Regardless that activist jusices gave the green light to Obamacare in 2012, previous generations of justices had officially clarified that the states have never delegated to Congress, via the Constitution, the specific power to regulate health issues. So all that the Supreme Court did in deciding Obamacare in Obama's favor, healthcare actually a unique, 10th Amendment protected state power, was to show that the judicial branch of the federal government is as corrupt as the other two branches.

And Rubio's ignorance of the Founding States' division of federal and state governent powers is contributing to the problem.

Wrong. Rubio is my Senator. I'm one of his many constituents. When he takes positions that I believe are wrong, I let him know. When he takes positions I agree with, I also let him know.

No, there won't be any more filibustering simply because it doesn't achieve the ends. Despite Paul's bravery, Brennan was still confirmed. The end goal isn't achieved. It was great as a tactic because it called attention to something. But overuse of a pointless filibuster won't achieve anything. Rubio says he won't vote for something that doesn't defund ObamaCare - but that alone means nothing. Regardless of his personal vte, Obamacare won't be defunded and his filibuster won't stop Obamacare from being defunded. His statement is about posturing himself. And that's fine - but only as far as it goes. It's posturing, and nothing more. Boehner has already caved by saying the House will not seek to defund Obamacre in a CR. So Rubio is taking the safest position there is: committing to a position that has no chance of going anywhere. Hardly a profile in courage.

With all the bashing that goes on in this forum, I don’t see anyone out there who is worthy of our votes. It seems all are RINOs, no matter what they do or say. No wonder we can’t win any elections. I’d jesture that most on here don’t even know what a conservative is. No one is a perfect 100%. Some are more RINO than others, but, Good God, I wish people would let up on a one-issue thing and look at the entire picture.

I just read that Rubio's 2012 ACU rating was 100%.

Not good enough, he's a RINO!!!

Overlooking amnesty guarantees the fall of America.

Obviously, you choose to overlook this 1 issue without recognizing the catastrophic damage & destruction that will result.

Idiot!

More of this, please, Senator.

And if you wouldn’t mind, please slap a little common sense and patriotism into some of your colleagues on the RINO left.

That you are unable to grasp the concept that amnesty for 30 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS/socialist voters would mean the final end to America proves YOU are the IDIOT.

And your butt-boy Rubio is pushing amnesty for ILLEGALS.

It also exposes you and Rubio as supporters for ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS and reject our borders and our nation.

So get out of here, Juan and go play with your other fellow racists at La Raza.

Idiot...and communist!!!!!

Like another poster asked, if his rating could be 200% conservative instead of 100%, would that be enough be enough for some here?

Doubtful.

Your post exposes you as a one issue person. So, with this criteria, you and your kind will assure that we keep getting the likes of obama elected to office because no one will ever be good enough for you.

With your viewpoint, you allow the communists to rule. How does that feel, communist lover?
