Skip to comments.Boehner Won’t Really Defund Obamacare: Goal “Is Not to Shut Down the Gov’t”
Posted on 09/10/2013 2:11:33 PM PDT by Olog-hai
The only real chance of blocking Obamacare is for Congress to pass a continuing resolution that deprives it of money, even though a government shutdown would be the likely result.
But that appears to be a step too far for some Republicans, including House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
Listen, our goal here is not to shut down the government, Boehner told reporters on Tuesday. Our goal is to cut spending and to stop Obamacare. And I believe that the strategy that was outlined to members this morning accomplishes that.
Press reports say the Republican strategy calls for the House to pass a continuing resolution that funds Obamacare, as well as a separate measure that would amend the CR to defund Obamacare. The Democrat-led Senate, however, would never pass the second resolution. Yet House Republicans could claim they did pass a measure to defund Obamacare.

Sorry, but this guy is the worst negotiator in world history.
Boehner is not on our side. He is a Democrat sympathizer and Obama enabler.
He’s Chrissy Mathews of the GOP. Gets a tingle whenever he meets his master, Odumbo.
Boehner and the GOP FULLY SUPPORT ROmneyCARE.
It is coming to bring control of life
and death to all Americans
who are not in Congress, or their families,
or their Staff, or with the White House,
and who do not have Korans to mitigate the taking
of their ORGANS, medical info and DNA for the state.
Speaker John “The Cave Man” Boehner thinks we’re all asleep. He’s an idiot.
Indeed. He’s very ineffective at convincing conservatives to embrace liberalism.
If he was intending to negotiate.
Boehner’s goal is to go along to get along. He might as well be Nancy Pelosi.
More tears than Pelosi, to be sure.
The dirty, rotten bastard will not give up on screwing us again.
Shut the damn government down you worthless prick!
We all peck away at our keyboards..but until we put 2 million howling conservatives on the Mall with fire in their eyes we won’t kill Obamacare and amnesty. They don’t care what the people want. They want to take care of the ruling class..and the rest of us be damned.
Fascinating, elegant, and mysterious to watch in the water, take a jellyfish out of the water, and it becomes a much less fascinating blob. This is because jellyfish are about 95 percent water.
Lacking brains, blood, or even hearts, jellyfish are pretty simple critters. An elementary nervous system, or nerve net, allows jellyfish to smell, detect light, and respond to other stimuli. The simple digestive cavity of a jellyfish acts as both its stomach and intestine, with one opening for both the mouth and the anus.
Boner makes obama — even worse, Kerry — look good as negotiators.
‘’Boehner and the GOP FULLY SUPPORT ROmneyCARE.
still can’t bear to assign ownership of this monstrosity to Obama. Romney is history: get over him.
Hey—as far as I’m concerned—shut her down!
Boner (oops, I think I misspelled the name) should pack his bags and move to the other side of the aisle!
I am afraid you are right, Oldexpat. I am also afraid that I am too old to march on Washington again. If we leave it to the younger ones, will they do what must be done?
I pray for America to be saved.
