Skip to comments.Is Speaker Boehner backing off Obamacare demands? (Paul Ryan seeks 'common ground' with Obama)
Posted on 10/09/2013 12:13:52 PM PDT by jimbo123
Is the House Republican leadership backing away from its demand that big changes to Obamacare are the price of reopening the government and raising the nations debt ceiling?
Thats what some tea party conservatives are beginning to suspect. Theyve noticed rhetoric from House Speaker John Boehner (R) of Ohio and his allies has changed a bit in recent days. Its focusing on the word conversation as in, what the GOP wants is for President Obama to give in and talk to them. The GOP leadership is talking more about the general prospect of tax reform and budget restraint, as opposed to the Affordable Care Act in particular.
Now, a new op-ed from House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R) of Wisconsin is irritating some on the right due to what they believe is its apostasy. The piece repeats the request for negotiation and talks about the prospect for bipartisan entitlement reform. It does mention the need for a complete rethinking of governments approach to health care, but only as a vague future goal.
But right now, we need to find common ground.

But right now, we need to find common ground.....
I thought Obama wasn’t negotiating.
That means you’re negotiating with yourself.
Just go home Paul and rest up.
Beohner has had cajones for 9 days now ... I wonder if it is not too weighty for him!
Careful, Mr. Ryan, “common ground” with Barack Obama is VERY dangerous territory, indeed.
Funding bills by regular order.
Do NOT fund ObamaCare.
HEY! Obamazombie Boehner! Yeah, YOU!
Answer this set of questions:
Does the refusal of Commander in Chief Obama to pay for the Funeral expenses of HIS four dead Warriors rise to the level of an Impeachable Offense?
Generally, dereliction of duty refers to failure through negligence or obstinacy to perform ones legal or moral duty to a reasonable expectation. In other words, it means willful or negligent failure to perform assigned duties or performing them in a culpably inefficient manner. Dereliction of duty is a specific offense in military law. (Quote from USLegal.com).
Dereliction of duty is an Impeachable Offense, as stipulated in the US Constitution. Dereliction of duty is also a US Military offense subject to a US Military Courts Martial.
Will our sorry Congressional RINOs do their usual kid gloves, boys will be boys approach to Obamas numerous violations of the US Constitution, or will they FINALLY draw up The Articles of Impeachment for B. Hussein Obama?
BTW Obamazombie Ryan, take your time, think it through as RINO Hunting Season begins 1-1-2014.
This RINO hunt has no bag limits, tents or caves - - - .
...or he can go “negotiate” himself.
The GOPe have been given power (power of purse House and >40 Senators). They need to step up and use that power or lose it. If the GOPe is disappointed in all of the stay-at-homers in 2012, they haven't seen nothing yet.
Obama’s approval is 37% and once again our side is ready to surrender and give up and not stand up to the bullying!!
I’ve always rather liked Boehner but if he drops this opportunity to get RID of Obammycare (which is depressing the entire USA economy and costing millions of jobs, all for a krappy program to begin with)
if he chickens out of this one,
I’m going to contribute $$$$$ to whatever decent looking opponent he gets in his next election
They always do. They always do.
Ryan is clearly not Presidential Material.
Paul Ryan apostasy?
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
The folding begins......
Never was that impressed with Paul Ryan
Even that so-called “balanced budget” he proposed went out into $trillions more in debt and out to the year 2020 before it actually balanced
He isn't. He's just playing golf and waiting for the weeper of the house and the rest of his spineless wimps to fold like wet noodles.
The Republicans are winning
Obama refuses to compromise, so what common ground?
Common ground was funding the rest of the government the way liberals wanted it funded.
That isn’t enough??
“..Careful, Mr. Ryan, common ground with Barack Obama is VERY dangerous territory, indeed...”
Understatement. How do you have common ground with an America-hating Marxist whose agenda is to destroy our Constitutional Republic...and still be a REAL AMERICAN??
Correct. Having power is like having laws. There is no point in giving them new ones if they don’t properly use the old ones.
FUPR. The House is GOP held ONLY because the 2010 and 2012 freshman candidates RAN ON killing Obamacare.
Now get busy.
We need to hold the line and hold the base. Ryan needs to shut up and go Noodling.
I suppose one could wipe one’s arse with a copy of the U.S. Constitution as a “sign of good faith”...
Of course, that wouldn’t exactly meet the “and still be a REAL AMERICAN” criteria, would it?
Words fail me.
CNN IS ALL OVER THIS. ...
New rat talking point.
My feet aren’t cold but evidently his are.
Paul Ryan is an amnesty whore. I have no use for that POS that made a fool out of me and a lot of other people ...go get a job once in your life Paul and get your worthless ass out of DC for a day or two
