SCOTUS didn’t follow the Constitution McCain. So the Repubs should vote this thing down!
if obamacare is 100% self-appropriating, then there should be no battle now.
“This $23.6 billion is part of the $105.5 billion appropriated by the last Congress to fund Obamacare. The remainder (Think of it as post-dated checks for the other $81.9 billion.) automatically becomes available between now and FY2019.” - See more at: http://www.askheritage.org/has-obamacare-already-begun-implementation/#sthash.aP22sGvX.dpuf
I would prefer a purge in the 2013 GOP of the spineless national (and some states) party leadership and a takeover by small government, personal liberty, states’ rights people.
However, our divide today is over similar issues to the 1856 blowup of the Whigs; tax slavery, regulatory slavery, debt slavery and immigration. Add in legislation without representation by the unelected bureaucracy having the force of law and today’s problem statement is fairly complete.
Yes but far more Democrats will support Obamacare than Republicans.
The house has the power of the purse.
As Cruz said on Limbaugh...the GOP govern by fear, fear that they will lose their congressional power in 2014 elections if they are blamed for shutting down the government.
they underestimate conservative Americans and think we are incapable of critical independent thinking.
Republicans will lose because they have alienated the true patriots left in this country who will rally behind a candidate who remembers and preaches the values that founded this country...
acting on fear always leads to defeat...and defeated they will be especially if they manage to avoid a government shutdown by abandoning conservatives to the death panels of Obamacare.
(Would that politicians would fear the loss of OUR freedom...rather than the loss of their privileged jobs....)
Since there is ample evidence that years ago our elected representatives cease to represent the “will of the people” .... is there any way to put this whole mess up for a public vote?
“Unless the Republican-controlled House passes legislation that permits funding of Obamacare, Obamacare is dead.”
Yup. The fight is and remains in the House. The focus has been on the Senate for the past few days but the House is where mcconnellcare succeeds or fails.
Great question. Why aren’t the democrats screaming “We do have the votes in the house!”
“Obama, Pelosi and Reid, we told you not to pass it and you did anyway. It’s our money.”
And then we as a free country, voted all 3 back into power.
Shame on who?
Sorry you are still missing the big picture... in fact you are yourself a bit overawed by hell. If you actually got true confessions from the devil... the devil would tell you that being the devil sucks. And the same goes for the vaunted delight of the evil.
Let me be a little more specific in fact, if you are doubtful.
Heaven is based on love and God’s glory.
Hell is based on pride and vainglory.
Love is immensely durable and so is the glory that fills it.
Prides are so easily dinged. For every gloating pride the evil get they “pay for it” in dozens of narcissistic injuries that they have no metaphysical way of getting away from... because God did not build them to work that way.
Take courage and stand for the One and love and glorify Him. It will make all the difference in the world, in fact in eternity too.
(at which point they find it surprisingly easy... the cross already did the tough stuff)
And the “GUY” who rode it!!
“Why would House Republicans abandon their current principled position and go ahead and fund Obamacare?”
Because only about 45 of them don’t want it, and Obama, Reid, and Pelosi all know that.
