Skip to comments.Pat Buchanan: The House should send up bills one at a time without Obamacare - Start with Defense

Pat was on with Greta. Make Reid NOT fund the military over Obamacare. Then Dept State, Justice, etc. The public will soon understand the RATS are holding up funding Gov't over Obamacare.
I like it a LOT. Start with defense. Eventually they might get around to funding the EPA and the IRS. Eventually.
That’s too smart....plus it might make some folks uncomfortable.
Each time a bill passes the House, just have the House members say, “we disagree with the Senate on Obamacare, but that doesn’t mean our Sailors and servicemen should suffer ...” Then repeat with Dept State ... Etc
Good tactical thinking. Do It!
How about this? 24 hr CR plus full budget. Next day - 24hr CR plus full budget only slightly smaller. Lather, rinse, repeat. Make them show up every day...thru Christmas and beyond. Life needs to be made personally miserable for the Senate Dems.
Thats great. Sent it to my Rep.
The CR needs to focus on People groups not funding levels. That’s why the GOP talking poInt needs to be, “we disagree with the Senate, but we don’t think ‘x’ group should be held hostage”. Remember, the Senate line is, the GOP is holding US public hostage. Pass bills to demonstrate that the opposite is true.
After the military, I can't think of very much that should be funded.
They don't have to worry, they are exempt from Obamacare.
They've got their fat paychecks and perks, to hell with the problems of the peasants they are supposed to be representing.
I wish I had a Rep that cared. BTW, I turned on the Senate brief to reporter’s tonight (almost vomited) but they now have a clock next to them that is counting down and reads, “X days hours minutes til GOP shuts down the Government” - really sick ...
Some guy on Hannity called in this afternoon saying this. It is so simple it is brilliant and since it is so simple and there is something probably wrong with it. However, I see nothing in the Constitution that says it can’t be done unless some meat heads have created some stupid procedural rule preventing it.
Send every thing across that needs to be done and nothing that doesn’t need to be done. Full support and approval for essential functions... Constitutionally permitted functions of the Federal Government and nothing else.
It sounds great, but keep in mind Reid will just add an amendment funding all of government and then send it back to house. Then what? It’s the same predicament over and over again.
I think they should just shut the government down until 2017. I’d be happy with that.
I really think that's what John Adams(?) Meant when he said, Democracy can only work in a Christian Society. There are now no limits, no morals in politics, so its to the bottom we go.
This concept makes total sense! That is why the BUFFOONS in the GOP will reject it!
Yes.. they are that stupid!
Good comment - this is like a chess game, my move ... Let me think ...
They need to stop with the CR nonsense and force a full budget. Make them show up every single day to vote against doing their Constitutional duty.
They wont do it. After the election in 2010, they conceded defeat to Obama, and now cannot admit that their opposition to it since that time is strictly to con the base. They hate Cruz and Lee because they are forcing them to admit the truth. What they are doing now is all smoke and mirrors.
Ole Pat’s not senile yet!
