Congressman Bridenstine votes to delay Obamacare
KRMG.com ^ | Sept 29, 2013 | By Camie Hayes

Late Saturday evening, Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine, along with the U.S. House of Representatives once again passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) that accomplishes two objectives: fund the federal government and protect Americans from the harmful effects of ObamaCare.

In a press release sent out late Saturday night, Congressman Bridenstine said, “Now the Senate will decide if they are willing to accept the bill as amended in the House or if they are going to shut down the government.

“James Madison explained in Federalist No. 58 that the purpose of Article I of the Constitution is to put the ‘power of the purse’ firmly in the hands of ‘the immediate representatives of the people.’

The American people have communicated clearly that they want the government open and they want to stop ObamaCare. The House heard and responded to the voice of the people.”

Over a week ago the House passed and sent a CR to the Senate.

That CR funded every aspect of the government except ObamaCare.

The Senate stripped out the ObamaCare defunding and sent the bill back to the House. The House has responded with a CR that simply delays implementation of ObamaCare for one year.

Bridenstine continued, “The House has provided a Continuing Resolution to fund the entire government -- twice.

To: Jim Robinson; All

The question to be asked is: “If it is in the Nation’s best interest to shut down the Government, then why are there only TWO Federal Politicians, Obama and Reid, loudly advocating shutting down the US Federal Government?

Obama has MANY reasons to shutdown the Federal Government such as:

1.) A headline grabbing story that will distract attention from the Impeachable scandals of:

Benghazi Massacre Dereliction of Duty by Obama as CIC;
Obamacare Insurance managed by the corrupt IRS;
IRS harassment of political opponents of Obama;
Use of the NSA by Obama to spy on everybody in the USA;
etc, etc.

2.) The use of fear of a shutdown might help to protect defunding and eventual abolishment of Obama’s narrowly focucused ideological agenda of an European-style, failure-prone, Marxist, monopoly of the US Medical Insurance Industry.

3.) Spreading fear and blame might also preserve Obama’s power to increase Obamacare Insurance premiums on an annual basis.

*This would be highly advantageous to Obama as the increase in mandatory insurance premiums would not be a tax, as the “unexpected market conditions” would be given as the reason for the increase.

*Also there would be no need to ask for the “Advice and Consent” of Congress, as the IRS would be in complete control of all income and medical records.

4.) The last reason is the most important for Obama, personally: America would at last no longer be a Nation where the Liberty to choose ones own family destiny could ever exist again.

As for Reid, the best guess I have is that he wants a Government Monopoly of the Medical Insurance Industry. Well, to be fair, Reid calls for a “single payer” system.

My guess is that multi-millionaire Reid, nearing Federal retirement, owns a lot of stock in some companies that are tied to a “single payer” system.

Maybe the NSA, or the IRS can find out for us?

I’m going to as my US Senator from TEXAS, The Esteemed Senator John “To Hell with my voters” Cornyn to check on this for me - - - .

It’s about time that the House recognizes it’s equal authority with the Senate.

Looks like your recent reminder. A FR reader perhaps?

I don’t know what’s happening tomorrow but it’s obviously something personal and serious that needs luck and prayers. I generally go to FR, then Drudge and then other sites on the net so I get some idea of what’s going on in the outside world. For starting FR, for maintaining FR, for being first, I am deeply in your debt and I am adding my prayers and all my best wishes for the best outcome tomorrow. Thank you.

Jim, as I said on the other thread, I just found out about this from the link above. I don’t know why I missed it, but I am praying for you fervently this night tomorrow, and throughout the healing process. We love you more than you know. I feel blessed to be one of those who has had the privilege of hugging you in person. I cherish that memory. God protect you and be merciful to you.
Love you,(((((Jim)))))
