No longer the case as Bammy continues as a Dicktater.
The Pubbies will cry, “but we don’t have the votes!”.
The d’s don’t control the House, which is essential to all that happens.
You don’t see them saying they don’t have the votes.
Why is not Boehner doing a Reid saying, “anything that funds obamacare is DOA?”
Because they don’t have the guts. They are not unified.
This is of course what Cruz is saying, rightly.
And NOT Ted Cruz. They are all on record as saying he has no control Hell take the win, though, if he gets it, if he doesn’t, people will turn to him when their monthly bill increases by $600 or so, and no one buys anything but groceries
You must ask yourself; “Who benefits from Obamacare?” And another which is being ignored is why “If you oppose Obamacare you are Racist.”
Quod erat demonstrandum
Ummm....I’m pretty sure the Democrats get to vote on it too.
I could be wrong....
This looks like a “people are overawed by evil” problem to me.
Sometimes it takes a school of hard knocks to get through people’s heads that yes, when you stick with God, you get hurled into some nasty battles but you also win.
And sometimes dire necessity is the only thing that will get people to try that approach. To put it in a more purely spiritual plane... the fear of hell can’t get anybody to heaven, but it can get them to the point where they endeavor to make amends with heaven (at which point they find it surprisingly easy... the cross already did the tough stuff).
Anyhow, Obama “care” is the political hell that God has set up here to inspire people to look for heaven again. IMHO.
and a few freepers will still blame it on Cruz. lol
The government’s to blame. The Republicans are to blame. For everything since FDR. Yup.
Who pays their salaries? Who keeps sending them money to stuff their own pockets, and to give away to cronies and moochers?
Would that Congressional leaders were willing to have that attitude and sell it to the American people. Go Cruz. Go Lee. Go Good Guy Party!
Actually annihilating the law would need that. However if the GOP decided it was going to get whineproof and just didn’t lend its hand to doling out any more funds to Obama “care” ... well first there would be the sulphurous clouds of the usual doom and gloom Democrat lies... then if the GOP stood fast, reports would start coming in about how all these reprieves from the monster have made the economy more optimistic, and what’s left of private health care is actually rallying. I say GOP, dig in there. Don’t lend your hand to what is manifestly wrong. God rewards what is right.
“So the question is this: Why would House Republicans abandon their current principled position and go ahead and fund Obamacare?
In general terms, this answer is also simple: They will only do it if they believe that for enacting legislation to fund Obamacare they will get something they value even more in return.”
The answer is money, power, sex, or media attention. These are the things used in DC to control our elected representatives. Money works for most. The cost of running a campaign is so high it all but the wealthiest representatives of the people must sell out to the special interests who provide the big campaign money. Others fall to the opportunity to engage in sex with the beautiful men and women who hang around the powerful and then are subject to blackmail. Others, are addicted to power and must do the bidding of the power structure to acquire and retain power. Finally, there are the egomaniacs like McCain and Graham who love to be on television. To be a regular on the weekly talk show circuit they must toe the line of the media bosses who choose the featured guests on the shows.
Essentially they will abandon principle to take care of their interests.
If the republicans refuse to fund Obamacare, Justice Roberts will just declare their actions unconrtitutional anyway.
Anything that has a negative effect on King Obama’s self esteem is not allowed in the United States Of Obama.
Well actually annihilating it might not even need Democrats. If GOP paralyzed it until the next presidential election, the salutary results could result in a landslide.
Elephants are bigger than donkeys, fellas... I recall vaguely where the donkey iconography came from. It was a political cartoon by, IIRC, Nast. Where a man in a donkey suit (or something like that) managed to frighten a vastly larger elephant. It was actually meant to display the cowardice of the GOP of the time. The Donk party actually treated that kind of morally false victory as a badge of honor. About time to bring them some reality and STOMP, ye elephants!
Maybe instead of sitting on your behind in the 2012 election you should have been voting for the Republican senator in your state. Not voting or voting for a third party candidate, who has zero chances to win doesn't help. You need to stop whining and do everything you can so we can take the senate back
BTW You are doing exactly what you accuse the Republicans of doing. This is called Projection
Still, we thank the good Lord if we need a spare and that’s the one we got. Sure we have to go at 50 mph till we get it fixed and that’s a bummer. But it was better than being stranded and maybe robbed or perish in the elements.
I know of no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their stringent execution.
What is worth keeping 0bamacare alive? To the House Republicans, it is the fear that they will be blamed for a government shutdown. It is the fear that they will lose their precious seats in Congress.
In other words, they, as does EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF CONGRESS, love their jobs more than they love their country. Not one of them will do the right thing if they believe it will cost them their seat in Congress.
Done deal. Period. End of statement.
