Great first step today by the House!
Now the bill goes to the Senate and there's no doubt they'll change it to fund ObamaCare. And then the House must hold the line! Reject the Senate's changes! Defund/kill ObamaCommieCare before it kills us!!
If Obama/Reid follow through with their threats to shutdown the government, then the adults in the House, with the full backing of the people, will have an opportunity to pass appropriation bills to fund the essential departments of government department by department.
The first appropriations bill to pass should be social security and medicare. This will set the stage for all to follow. The democrat senate won't dare fail to pass it if they wish to hold their seats in 2014. Then pass a bill to fund the defense department. Then the federal courts, the congress, the post office, etc., and cut the budgets where needed (ie, everywhere). Again, just fund the essentials. To hell with the unconstitutional federal functions that are reserved to the states.
Zero for the EPA! Zero for the federal departments of commerce, labor, energy, transportation, agriculture, housing, health, education and welfare, etc., etc., etc. Return all these functions to the states and the people per the U.S. Constitution!
Hold the line!!
Defund the federal behemoth!!
Call, write, visit your reps!! Hold the line!! Defund it!!
Great plan. Let see if the Senate is willing to shut down each individual agency one at a time. Then when we have all of the essential provided for, we stop. Maybe this is the way we should do it every time from now on.
Just got an e-mail from Rinse Pre-bus.... saying “We Did IT!”
Yeah! And all thanks to you... /sar
From the e-mail:
“By a vote of 230 to 189, the Republican majority in the House defeated Nancy Pelosi and Democrat opposition.”
GOP-E defeated as well.
Damned right it is. It’s their constitutional duty. It’ll take a lot more time to fully debate and pass/reject each bill, but that’s fine. As a bonus, it will keep them out of mischief.
Well done, Jim. But I’d suggest one change in your order. Defense first. We are at war, and I suspect you’d agree with me when I say our troops should lack for nothing.
Great job, Rinse Pre-bus!! But you can bet your sweet bippie Tokyo Rove will be spitting mad.
Only works when the GOP has a majority in at least one House of Congress.
When “Amnesty” passes - with the avid support of many Republicans - Democrats will take permanent control of the White House and Congress within a few elections.
ObamaCare is a critical battle.
But the war will be won or lost on the “Amnesty” issue.
French surrender monkey at heart...
Well, I went with SS first because the democrats won’t dare block it. Defense will require more debate.
I’ll continue to up the efforts to my so called Senators. However... since one of my Senators is a clown (Al Franken), I’m going to have to resort to bribery. I’m going to send him some more diapers, balloons, fake rabbit ears, hell... maybe he needs a new clown car.
I like it!
Well, this is FR! We fight for the constitution and our God-given Liberty here. No surrender, no retreat! We place no trust in the weak-kneed RINOs, but we must push them and push them hard now that they’ve decided to stiffen their backbones a bit (thanks to prodding by the grassroots tea party). Hold the line Republicans!! You’ve got the hun on the run if you follow through!!
Maybe not, you don't know if you don't try.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ― Samuel Adams
Here is another one that might apply.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitorhe speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nationhe works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a cityhe infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared".......Cicero, 42 B.C.E.
I wonder just how much money is being saved by NOT funding commie-care?
This year, two years, ten years worth of savings?
It really doesn’t matter what the senate does. The Republican controlled House MUST reject any changes the democrat senate makes to fund ObamaCare. Hold the line!
Despite Obama/Reid’s threats, no one really wants to totally shutdown the government. The essentials will be funded and the House is in the driver’s seat.
Hold the line!!
We must kill the economy-wrecking, jobs-killing, liberty-robbing, big government socialist monstrosity aka ObamaCare before it kills us!!
There’s no way in hell ObamaCare can possibly succeed anyway, even if it is funded. But that’s just part of their commie plan. When it fails, they’ll roll out single payer.
Screw the left!! Defund this communist POS now and you’ll see a landslide for the Republicans in 2014!!
Go, Pubbie House, GO!!
Not only defund the tyranny that is DeathCare, but broadcast the names of Congressman and every Senator who votes to keep DeathCare and organize and work to defeat all of them come 2014 and 2016. Post their names every day on FR and on blogs.
Organize and volunteer on campaigns to replace every one of them.
