Boehner seeks to calm Republican clamor over how to stop 'Obamacare'
Reuters ^ | August 22, 2013 | By Caren Bohan and Rachelle Younglai

House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, struggling to ease Republican divisions over how to fight "Obamacare," vowed on Thursday to try to erode the healthcare law, but stopped short of weighing in on a push to deny it funding.

Boehner and other Republicans agree on their distaste for President Barack Obama's signature healthcare overhaul, but the party has been roiled by a debate over whether to threaten a shutdown of the government to try to gut the measure.

Obviously

Just last year, before the election, he stated that it was the law and it would be funded.

He still got re-elected and he still got re-elected as Speaker.

Notice a complete lack of real polling on anything lately? That's because the SILENT MAJORITY has HAD it. Up to HERE.

The left sees us holding up Cruz and team to steamroll their traitorous asses over, and don't know what to do about it.

Oh, their tears taste sweet.

Let's see. Speaker Boehner won't oppose Obamacare but he supports amnesty for illegal aliens.

Smells like treason to me!

Many Republicans fear they would be blamed if the government were to shut down

Y'all are worrying about the wrong thing.

If the House and the Senate pass a continuing resolution (what we used to call a budget) that contains funding for the government but contains no funding for nobamacare, will nobama sign it?

If he refuses, the subsequent loss of government funding and shutdown of non-essential services will belong to nobama. He's the one that refused to sign the funding bill.

I'm sure the pubbies understand this but they do a horrible, practically nonexistent job of explaining exactly where the fault will lie.

Who knows, maybe nobama would sign it? Naw!

This crybaby is one big son of a b****. I hate him more than Obama. He has enabled Obama, so has his buddy, that piece of offal Mitch McConnell.

It’s the RINO’s who are implying “government shut down”, working in tandem with the Left, by deliberately failing to state that the effort is to isolate and defund only obamacare. Not one of our guys is suggesting we defund the entire government.

As you say, it will fall to Obama to accomplish that, in a snit over having his signature legislation handed back to him and refusing to sign anything defunding his fraudulent healt fiasco.

BohnerCare Motto: Ya gotta take Care of your Boehner, ain't nobody else gonna do it for ya.

Sorta reminds me of the old saying, "It's my Boehner, and I'll wash it any way and as much as I want to!"

Yes he does. Goodness...they’ve voted REPEATEDLY to end it...it is the SENATE that has refused to even ALLOW a vote on the many bills the HOUSE has passed.

A shutdown may be worse, because of what it does in the eyes of the public.

A denial of funding may be the better way, and I don’t know why he refuses to commit to that strategy.

Republicrats are worried what CNN will say about them. They can defund it, own it and tell the MSM to go pound sand or their next bill will fine media outlets 10 million dollars for each false narrative published.
