CONSERVATIVES CHALLENGE MCCONNELL TO DEFUND OBAMACARE: 'IF YOU FUND IT, YOU OWN IT'
Breitbart ^ | Aug 2, 2013 | By Tony Lee

Posted on 08/03/2013 10:08:09 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

A conservative group released an ad on Wednesday comparing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to a chicken and challenging him to support the effort to defund Obamacare. The ad proclaims that McConnell will own Obamacare if he votes to fund it.

ForAmerica, a non-profit conservative group led by Brent Bozell, released an ad titled, "Who Are the Biggest Chickens in Washington?"

The ad implies that McConnell is one, as it says, “In American slang, the chicken represents a coward."

“The chicken is also representative of a new breed of Republicans in Washington,” the ad then says. “They tend to say one thing: ‘Obamacare should be repealed, root and branch.’ – Sen. Mich McConnell. But when confronted with an opportunity to act, they often run, far away, without a sense of direction.”

No need to worry. Why, I bet even now, Mitch McConnell is drafting a strongly worded letter to Harry Reid and the Dems.

Yep, McConnell leaves the Dems quaking in their boots!

That’s correct. If they pay for it that means they approve of it.

Excellent.
I like the mantra - - “You fund it, you own it.”

I would bet the rent money that the Republicans end up funding it.

The IRS is already openly telling Congress to go pound sand. The full implementation of ObamaCare will place the bureaucracy even above the president’s control. The IRS will be to America what the Communist Party is to Russia.

McConnell and Boner are looking for their gonads with both hands and a mirror; nada, IMO.

Bohner and Mcconnell HAVE ALREADY FUNDED everything Obama has been doing.. (ON PURPOSE)..
It’s humorous to say THIS is any different..

Obama has his (proverbial) hands on Bohners and McConnell BALLS all along the way..
HOW does he SQUEEZE?... private FBI visits by goons?.. subtle intimidation?.. Who knows..
But they are indeed Obama “bitches”.. it’s pretty obvious..

They “could have” cut Obama off at the knees(financially) from day one..
BUT DIDN’T... Are they “WEAK?” -OR- “COMPLICIT?”
either one.... same result..

The “defund Obamacare” move is a very clever political move for the 2014 Repulican primaries. It won’t pass the Senate. But it’s going to put McConnell and Graham and others of their ilk as opposed to defunding Obamacare.

Freedom Works and Club for Growth will use this against them in ads for primaries. Hopefully, we get one or two Cruz’s or Paul’s in the Senate as a result.

That’s why the GOP-E is so ballistic about this.

Well, that makes them liars, also. The shout out from Joe Wilson comes to mind 'You lie'! That didn't go over big in DC gasp! where the PC crowd reigns - I guess chicken is acceptable - but lying chickens explains them better.

If you have the opportunity & finances it seems like a great time to leave this future communist country.

I'm afraid that challenge may include too many long words for McConnell and the rest of the Washington, D.C. Republicans.

Boehner, Cantor, and Goodlatte are right there with Obama’s B-I (you know what) McConnell with those stinging letters.

Unfortunately, like with Illegal Alien Amnesty, a lot of the Business Socialist types in the GOP want ObamaCare.

You hear few major Multi National corporations speak out against ObamaCare. Reason is that they know eventually the US government will end up having Euro Style socialized medicine after the bailout of ObamaCare

Bozell is taking a good approach. Hopefully it will be enough to counter the ObamaCare Supporters in the GOP

McConnell will make certain that the Senate doesn’t defund.

And TX 2014 Republican primary voters, many of whom are uninformed, now have no alternative to Cornyn to my knowledge.
