Posted on 09/18/2013 10:04:17 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
House Republican leaders bowing to the demands of their conservative wing will put to a vote on Friday a stopgap spending measure that would strip all funding from President Obamas signature health care law, increasing the likelihood that the government will shut down in two weeks.
The decision to embrace a showdown on the health care law came after months of pushing by conservatives and resistance by Republican leaders to link it to the government financing measures that Congress must address this fall.
For their part, Democrats appeared almost gleeful that the Republican leadership had chosen the most confrontational route with just days to go before a potential shutdown. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee began a fund-raising appeal off the decision immediately. Democratic leaders declared themselves fully united in opposition. Representative Peter Welch, Democrat of Vermont, said the Republican Party had just moved from dysfunction to disintegration.

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.
If they appear that way, it could be that if Obamacare goes away they won't have to run future campaigns explaining why they supported it.
Finally, the GOP displays some guts!
If they destroy Obamacare, this could get them a landslide in 2014! Even the Dems are beginning to hate the idea of Obamacare.
“That government is best that governs least.”
SHUT IT DOWN!
Aw, shucks - - - , thanks.
BTW, rumor has it that Golf Clown, B. Hussein Obama, wants to shut down the US Federal Government so that he will have more free time to play Golf, away from the fog of responsibility.
Consider the source, the NY Slimes! They wouldn’t tell the truth if it were tatooed on Pinch’s tush.
I’ll believe it when I see it. I don’t trust RINO’s
If 0bamacare were to go away, would employers REINSTATE the health plans they’ve scrapped? NO. Damage done. Game over.
That would make it appear he doesn’t take the importance of this last ditch Conservative effort to cut him off at the knees regarding his “signature accomplishment” seriously.
We are serious, and we haven’t any choice BUT to wreck his Socialist dreams, or lose our country.
I will celebrate AFTER the dirt is covering the casket.
Funny, how we never hear about the Democrats ‘liberal wing’.
I remember those days with great fondness.
I wonder who the Unions will support?
The current administration is afraid that when the people see the economy grow and things running smoothly after the government shuts down, they will not want it back again...*LOL*
Rep Tom Graves' "Stability, Security and Fairness" Resolution is gaining speed. Defunds 0'DeathCare, without a shut down.
Why not have the true Republicans request a BINDING, updated, “Federal Financial Impact Statement” for 2012-2013 for Obama”care?”
It should take a month or two to complete, allow for a vote to delay Obama”care” for a year, and then show the great financial harm to our Economy that the Statement’s numbers will document.
Wharton, Stanford, Michigan and Princeton could also file their independent Financial Impact Statements to compare to the Office of Budget and the Congressional Budget Office Financial Impact Statements.
As B. Hussein is fond of saying: “We need to get all the facts first.”
They are answering to the American people. I guess the NY Times has a problem with that.
President Obama Responds To GOP At The Business Roundtable :
And now the response... We’re recovering nicely - but no negotiations?
*OBAMA SAYS `WE’VE COME A LONG WAY’ ON ECONOMY
*OBAMA SAYS BUDGET DEBATE MAY BE MOST CRITICAL FOR ECONOMY
*OBAMA SAYS HOUSE ENGAGED IN IDEOLOGICAL FIGHT ON BUDGET
*OBAMA SAYS RAISING DEBT CEILING IS A BASIC FUNCTION OF CONGRESS
*OBAMA: UNPRECEDENTED TO USE DEBT CEILING TO `EXTORT’ PRESIDENT
Shut it down.
The democratic party is a leaking sewer - and we’re downslope.
On another note, I’d love to have both of those cars on that Beach Boys album.
Poorly constructed? yes
I don’t give a smelly Obama...I still want ‘em!
Go for it!
The great fear among the “lawmakers” is that we’ll all discover how much better life is without so much government.
A shutdown will only result if the Dem controlled Senate refuses to pass the House bill or the Zero King doesn't sign it. My guess is that Harry the Stinker is under orders to not let it get to Zero's desk, so any shutdown should be put on the Senate Dems.
We'll see how the "news" media spin this (probably hard left....).
House strips all funding from President Obamas signature health care law, handing the ball to the Democrats to shut down the government in two weeks.
We shall see what the Democrats do with this unpopular destructive law called Obamacare, especially because many Democrats describe it as a "train wreck."
Given that Democrats have disordered minds, anything can happen. Get out the popcorn! Will the Dems blame Bush; who will they blame? They appear to be incapable of rationale thought.
Wish I could have experienced those days in America. My little kids think that’s “my generation’s” music, because I listen to it so much. Probably the only guy in his 30s that sits through those PBS Doo-Wop concert specials!
Well, I was brought up in the 50s. LOL Welcome to my world. ;>)
Last I checked, there were only two economies in “ - - - the new world order - - - “ that were making a profit: Ireland and TEXAS.
The eyes and ayes are on TEXAS Senator Ted Cruz.
