Too bad there's hardly anyone with the cajones to say that.
I'm becoming tired of being considered "Far Right." Fiscally responsible citizens with a healthy respect for our original constitution and purpose are now labelled radicals and extremists. The scary part of that is it is starting to grow roots.
Who today is considered "Far Left"? Anyone. It seems the whole "left" can go screaming down hill towards socialism/facism and centralized, all powerfull government and not get labelled. But the further they go, the further right we become while standing still on our positions.
Boener then is like a raft adrift in a left current while tea party type folks are deep heavy anchors resisting the current.
The best way to fix a broken system is to SHUT IT DOWN, and THEN fix it.
Newt SHUT DOWN the US Federal Government in the 1990s and it WORKED!
The Liberal Agenda Media and the Democrats boo-hooed to this day, but Newt achieved success.
The only way to force a spoiled brat to behave is to punish, punish, punish.
The worst punishment that a Democrat, or RINO can imagine is to take away their ability to spend our tax dollars.
The best way to do that is to shutdown the non-essental parts of the US Federal Government, starting with mothballing Air Force One.
Is the ACA another blind alley like TARP...waste,fraud, and probably would not hold up in court as to Constitutional legality? Obamacare is constitutionally wrong, regardless of what Justice Roberts said....it is illegal and therefore I don’t have an obligation to obey any of the Obamacare ‘mandates’. Congress doesn’t want it for themselves or their staff; the Unions are railing against it and other factions want out. Why is there any reason to continue implementing this illegal monster, so toxic, so legally lethal every page should be incinerated, scattering the ashes to the winds.
Ted Cruz Ping!
Jim, we are winning big time but it’s important to be VERIFY!
Some Republican staffers are sure to try sabotage.
And to all...good job with the calls and emails!
Now its time to fight the media!
The soundest strategy that meets both long term and short term goals isn’t defunding, which the story correctly notes will never pass the Senate, let alone Obama, but instead is suspending.
Suspending it gives you what you want short term, plus gives you the chance to continue to beat Democrats in election after election. Once you have a Congressional majority, then defund it.
We need to win and hold the Congress for at least a generation. Conservatives need to learn to play chess. The long game is what we lack.
Boehner hates the TEA Party, but they are his best neighbors in West Chester, Ohio where they all live.
What do we have to lose? Hopefully McCain, Graham, Boner, etc.
A big smooch to you for pounding these stories home, on FR. Major “atta’ boy”!
I repeat myself, but, we are right now in the eye of the storm, or else Lee, Cruz and Paul would be swarming the press conferences with solid information. They are not.
Methinks they are in the trenches leaning on some folks, and cracking arms.
McConnel for sure. Thanks, Mr. Jim.
We have to keep the pressure on the GOP.....don’t let up!!
“House Republicans will soon stage a vote on a budget bill known as a continuing resolution (CR) that both funds the government and defunds the Affordable Care Act...”
Sorry. They lost me at “STAGE.”
Until the vote is a DONE DEAL; it’s all just theatrics. Dog-and-pony; smoke-and-mirrors; hocus-pocus. SSDD.
Deliver me the body stone dead, and THEN I might begin to believe.
....”If there is no deal by then, the government will shut down all nonessential services.”
I think millions of us believe the shut down of “all non-essential services” is a GOOD thing!
