“We all believe the same thing, we all want to achieve the same goal, and so we shouldnt be questioning each others conservatism over tactical disagreements.”
I have a hard time with this argument. How does funding Obamacare now result in getting rid of it in any plausible future? Even if R’s take the Senate in 2014, repeal will never get past a filibuster nor a veto. Does he really think there’s a good chance conservatives we will get a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and the presidency in 2016?
Barring that, there’s no chance for repeal. Therefore, this is not about tactics regarding the best way to get rid of Obamacare, it is about whether Obamacare becomes permanent.
Conclusion: It is a strategic dispute within the Republican party (disguised as tactics) about whether Obamacare SHOULD be gotten rid of.
See my post number 31 just after yours. The House of Representatives has the power to rein in an out of control government by denying them the funds. This is per James Madison aka the Father of the Constitution.
