Obamacare wasn’t nipped in the bud, and this is the result.
Famous last words in history:
“I say to my Republican friends, ObamaCare is over. It’s passed, it’s the law,” Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said.
“I say to my Republican friends, the Fugitive Slave Act is over. It’s passed, it’s the law,” Democratic Senator Jefferson Davis said.
Why was this done in a way that would require 2-3 vote???
That’s just asking for it to fail.
We got 34 Dem votes on the DC bill!
Nancy may not be able to stop the NIH bill tomorrow.
Boy is Harry gonna be mad if the House votes to let children get cancer treatment...
They need to go home and get a good night’s sleep, just like the Senate. Let Harry make the next move. It’s so simple!
What a shame...Bloated unionized corrupt government workers and corrupt government contractors are hurting after one whole day??
Everyday day bloated corrupt fatgov is shut down, eliminate 5,000 fed gov employees and reduce their fat bloated tax paid retirement pensions by 50 percent...
Everyday...Eliminate 5,000 of these parasites....
Obamacare is TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.
Obamacare has nothing to do with care, health or medical treatment.
Obamacare has everything to do with a mandatory insurance that everyone must buy at the point of the Federal gun.
Obamacare Medical Insurance premiums are under the control of the IRS.
These insurance premiums can be raised every year by the IRS with no involvement by Congress.
Thus, all the present and future Democrat rulers have to do is tell the IRS how much taxpayer dollars need to be forcefully extracted from the taxpayers, and the IRS will extract the money for them.
Hence, Obamacare Insurance is taxation without representation that Traitor John Roberts of THE NINE SUPREMES has ruled it to be above the control of the US Congress, and it will stay until Obamacare is ABOLISHED!
KEEP it shut down so America can see just how useless the 800,000 furloughed federal 0bamabots are.
If it actually IS a plan, it is a good one. Having gotten the entire senate democrats on record as shutting down government to force people to pay higher taxes (the individual mandate), they now have gotten most house democrats on record as refusing to fund essential government services.
The democrats say the republicans are hostage-takers. Well, the republicans just tried to release some of the hostages, and the democrats refused to take them. “Nope, you hostages just have to stay hostages”. So who is really taking hostages now?
The etHouse Republican caucus knew exactly what it was doing. Folks......no vote ever goes forward in either the house or senate without the majority leadership knowing the outcome before the vote is taken. Once, every so often, you can see an upset....but not with three repeating bills. IMHO....smart move by Boehner and the troops!!!
Also.....kindly take note that the Lee/Cruz, Defund Obamacare Petition which is still active added 20,000 signatures yesterday, now standing at 2,020,000 signatures. Please continue to get our folks to sign & endorse it!!!!
WWW.DONTFUNDOBAMACARE.COM....Remember folks....this battle is a protracted conflict...and will go on for a long time!!!! That is to our great advantage!!!
Why were 2/3 needed? What is a “suspension” bill?
Can’t they just pass with a simple majority??
I truly hope the government is shut down for weeks. I WANT people to see they don't need as much government as we have. Its time to let a LOT of people employed by government (my tax dollars) go.
