Tea party: Obamacare is now ‘BoehnerCare’ [Rally at Boehner’s Ohio office 8-28]
The Washington Times ^ | August 26, 2013 | Stephen Dinan

Posted on 08/26/2013 9:54:59 AM PDT by conservative98

Tea party activists are planning to rally outside of House Speaker John A. Boehner’s Ohio office on Tuesday, telling the Republican speaker that if he doesn’t use this year’s spending fight to defund the health care law, it will hence be known to them as “BoehnerCare.”

“If he funds it, he will own it,” said Janet Porter, president of Faith2Action, one of the groups participating in the rally.

“You fund it, you own it.”

Every sniveling coward Republican in Congress should be getting this message.

Hanging a name on it like that gives Obama a huge break. I can’t stand where we are today - Rino’s on one hand democrats on the other and conservatives fighting both with the only winner being democrats. I think we are screwed.

abput damn time.

they only seem to respond to negative pressure. precisely why they care more about what political and media libs say about them than the people thy’re supposed to represent.

start applying the negative pressure to them hard.

course the only people they ever seem to feel justified at getting angry back at are their own people, too.

what part of taxed enough already doesn’t he get? there’s no way to justify it. even if scrotus wrongly says it’s legal, doesn’t mean it should be done.

i welcome the defeat of no balls boner.

That is the loser tip toe strategy and how Romney managed to lose the election after wiping the floor with the kenyan in the first debate.

We have had 4 trillion dollar deficits in a row and no govertment entitlement has crashed. Don’t count on kenyancare crashing anything for a LONG time.

The only way we will ever beat these rampaging marxists is by engaging them on the political battlefield. Strategic retreats will only lead to more loses at the ballot box.

And he would be right; I DON'T want MY hard earned money being re-distributed anymore. Sorry 30mil people, quit relying on me via government taxation and theft.

But if the republicans say it and you don’t go along, you hate America and support Obama. In fact it’s true because all the aXs kissers on FR told me so.

Still do. Almost daily.

Brilliant move! Boner wants to keep the speakership so badly that he just might act like a conservative. The problem is Boner is not the one who can win the argument with the public. He should be told to keep his mouth shut and let real conservatives like Cruz explain it.

The beltway GOP chose their post election strategy. Nobody forced them to release that ridiculous autopsy report, unload a carpet bomb amnesty campaign, surrender on the recess appointments, belittle conservatives, etc., etc. They chose to do this stuff knowing that would upset conservatives. THEY DON’T CARE!

It is well known that the Dems are trying to divide the GOP int he run up to 2014. Knowing that, the GOP still choose a divisive policy path. The beltway GOP has made their bed with one strategic blunder after another. Now they have to lay in it.

Like that is different? Pelosi or Bhoner pushing immigration/Obama/homos et all really does not matter. Unless Hamilton was wrong about not putting problems at the head of our party.

But you GOP types seem to know better than the founders so he must be.

If the beltway GOP don’t fight and engage the Dems they are going to lose. It doesn’t matter what the strategy is. The Dems/MSM will control the narrative and steamroll them. Again. We have seen this movie before. It has a bad ending. Time for a new strategy and bold leadership.

Oh? And how do you propose to stop Boehner from being Obama's beyotch? Cross our fingers in the hope that he'll do the right thing and stand up to him this time?

Boehner has the power to stop this train wreck. If he fails to do what has to be done, then he most certainly does bear the responsibility for the resulting carnage.

Are you just now tuning in to this issue?

The current conservative strategy is to fund everything but Obamacare in the upcoming CR, and announce that strategy loudly until everyone in the country hears it.

Problem is Obama has the media in his pocket. The’ll be showing little old ladies eating cat food....soldiers without ammo... deaf and blind kids getting kicked out of group homes....while the repubs will be tripping over their tounges splitting hairs. We’ll get killed. I know most of the flamethrowers here don’t care.....but they will when we lose the house.

So what do you propose Boehner & Co. do? Give Zero the funding for Obamacare and thereby enable the near-term catastrophe it will cause, while also giving it just enough strength to survive its initial birth pangs?

Understand that once a government program has a beneficiary class, it's nearly impossible to kill. That's exactly what will happen if the funding for Obamacare is allowed to be a part of the next CR.

In the long term, it doesn't matter which side of the political traitor class suffers for this monstrosity. It has to be killed for the sake of the country. In the short term, I think you overestimate the negative impacts to Republicans for mustering their courage and stopping this thing.

As I said before, they need to loudly and repeatedly announce to the American citizens that they're intentionally NOT funding Obamacare, but ARE funding the rest of the government. They need to then follow that with a statement that any gov't shutdown will be the sole choice of Obama, and no one else.

Let the MSM do their worst. They do it to our side all the time anyway. If they're going to demonize us, then let them do it because we're doing what's right for the country.
