Boehnercare coming soon!
Ahhhh... See what bonehead is doing. They will cut a couple of more dollars, leave Obamacare in place and try to hold the House and take the Senate in 2014.
Of course by then it will be too late.
Either 1) Bonehead won’t pull it off, or 2) he’ll pull off something that’s worth nothing.
Just as he is worth nothing.
Several Republicans expressed opposition because they said they see the strategy as non-binding.
This is nothing more than a procedural gimmick to lend the appearance of de-funding Obamacare cooked up by Republican “leadership”.
Call Boehner and Cantor and let them know they are not fooling anyone with this ruse.
Is Bohner proposing something here?
Breaking: Republican Leaders Planning To Propose A "Hocus Pocus Plan For Defunding ObamaCare"
The deceptions never seem to end. Instead of defunding ObamaCare, Republican leaders are still working behind-the-scenes in an attempt to both fool the American people into believing that they oppose ObamaCare while they do everything in their power to ensure that ObamaCare becomes a permanent fixture on the American landscape.
Case in point... National Review is reporting that House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor is now pushing a scheme that conservative critics are calling a "hocus pocus plan for defunding ObamaCare." And there is no better time than the present to call our elected officials on the carpet for their trickery.
Here's how the National Review report reads: "Under the Cantor plan, the House would vote on two measures, the CR and a resolution that amends the CR to defund ObamaCare. Both measures would be brought under a rule that allows the Senate to send just the clean CR to the president, but only after they first vote on whether to defund ObamaCare. If the Senate voted against defunding ObamaCare, they could then pass the clean CR."
In plain English, House Republican Leaders are proposing to push the Senate to take a token vote on defunding ObamaCare (which is doomed to fail), and then allow the Senate to immediately take another vote to fund ObamaCare. In doing so, they would ensure that ObamaCare is funded while maintaining the illusion to an unsuspecting public that Republicans don't want ObamaCare funded.
We're not fooled by this "hocus pocus" scheme and we need to make sure our so-called Republican leaders know that you are not fooled. Within the next 20 days, as its implementation progresses, ObamaCare may be so entrenched that it could become nearly impossible to defund and repeal. Thats why we need to reinforce our message that the American people want it DEFUNDED NOW... PERIOD!
Wrong on defunding Obamacare
Wrong on making war in Syria
Wrong on amnesty
Wrong on everything that matters.
Let me know when the republicans start acting like a political party with actual political interests and positions.
A little game of three-card monte has just been laid out for us, come on, you were watching all the time, of course you know where the Queen of Hearts is in that shuffle. But watch how artfully the dealer picks up two cards with one hand and one card with the third hand. Lost in this quick shuffle, the mark has zero chance of selecting the “right” card, as there was no way of detecting whether the first card laid down was from the top or the bottom of that shuffle. This requires a great deal of practice with this particular sleight-of-hand by the dealer, and the compliance of two shills who are secretly working in cahoots with the dealer, unbeknownst to the mark at whom the play is directed.
Folks, you have been had.
“Michigan Republican Justin Amash said in a message posted on Twitter : “I do not support the #hocuspocus plan that doesn’t really defund #Obamacare.””
Yep, more hocus-pocus, subterfuge from Boehner, Cantor, and Sessions—the Republican “leaders.”
BTW, Sessions is irate at Cruz for putting the heat on the House leadership. Redstate: "Multiple people confirm to me that just a few hours ago Pete Sessions blew up about Ted Cruz and made sure everyone in the room knew he held Cruz in absolute contempt."
