Posted on 03/08/2013 9:46:50 AM PST by Olog-hai
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.
we can pass [the amendment] onto a bill, I will vote for a continuing resolution, he said. Even if its 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.

Looks like somebody’s actually paying attention and fighting for us over there.
Stand firm, Marco. We have to defund the Leviathan.
Is Rubio politically bi-polar or I am just going through a crazy love -hate relationship.
Whoa, great news.
Another wacko bird?
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?
Probably even reviewing the Constitutio.
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.
Rubio is the leaf in the wind, he cannot make up his mind what he wants to be.
POTUS run, Rand Paul will follow.
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?
Pro-Amnesty Rubio who rejected joining the Senate Tea Party caucus cannot be trusted...get it?
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'm not much of a fan of Obamacare so I'm going to go ahead and support Rubio in this effort...get it?
You can keep bashing him if you want.
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.
LOL....you’re like the fool covering his ears and singing “la, la, la I can’t hear you!”
Ignore Rubio’s Romneyesque RINO-ism at your own peril.
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.
Good. I want to see another filabuster. That was the most fun night in politics since Perot had his TV show!
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.
Will he filibuster it?
Hubba. Hubba. Hubba!
Good! This may be the window of opportunity. Hold fast, Mario!
Hurrah Marco! Could it be that he is a true USAian?
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.
That B the same Rubio that is a senator form my home state that supports amnesty?
hell with him.
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.
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.
This country is already heading toward catastrophy and destruction - with or without Rubio’s stance on immigration. It wasn’t Rubio who set illegals free from the prisons, was it? You are the idiot!
As far as this forum goes - they’re all RINOs. Your snark was well taken!!
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.
Dealing with reality dies not make Rubio a Rino. However you need to deal with your reality.... get a rabies shot.
Ahhhh, another open borders La Raza supporter has outed himself as a hater of America and our borders.
Well done, Juan....now get the hell back to your beloved socialist cesspool called Mehico!!!!
Thanks for making my point. My that was easy.
...and yet leftists like you & Rubio continue to support (without any denial) open borders for 30 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS & socialist voters.
Juan, you La Razaians are so transparent in your hatred of America...and you’re so arrogantly proud, too.
Good bye, La Raza Juan!
I seriously doubt it.
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?
