The house has the power of the purse.
Didn’t Cantor say that the House defunding was just for show, because the fix is in on the reconciliation process? As long as the Senate votes for cloture the Senate and House versions will have to be reconciled, and the guy who would do that (Cantor) has said all the defunding stuff was just political cover and the intention has always been to get Obamacare in.
If that is the case, it seems to me that we need to be starting recall efforts against Cantor and Boehner just to let them know their time is DONE if they sell us down the river for a show.
And it seems to me that we need to be getting pledges from our Representatives, that they will not vote for ANY legislation that funds Obamacare - even a “reconciled” version. If amendments are not allowed to the reconciled version and it comes back with Obamacare funded, then our R’s have to buck the negotiations of the treasonous leadership and vote down the reconciled version. Before that happens they should be letting Boehner and Cantor know that they will be standing alone in support of any reconciled version that includes Obamacare funding.
How do we get these things to happen, very quickly?
