Skip to comments.Sen. Graham to Republicans: 'Face Reality That ObamaCare Cannot Be Stopped'
Posted on 10/13/2013 4:32:59 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has called President Obama a pathetic leader for his lack of involvement in negotiations to end the government shutdown. He slammed the presidents unwillingness to compromise with Republicans as immature.
Today on Americas News HQ, Graham told anchor Doug McKelway, For [Republicans] to suggest to the American people that we could defund ObamaCare or delay it for a year by shutting down the government, I think was unrealistic.
With the debt limit just four days away, Sen. Graham said, Im not going to vote for any deal coming out of the Senate that doesnt have a reasonable chance of getting a majority of House Republicans understanding that defunding and delaying ObamaCare is a bridge too far.

This is per James Madison's Federalist 58 - the constitution gives the power of the purse to the people's representatives in the House for the specific purpose of reining in a runaway chief executive and senate. It' our constitutional check and balance on unconstitutional expansionist government.
Dear House Reps: Ignore the pathetic RINO surrender monkeys. We the people have your backs! Do your constitutional duty! Defund ObamaCare!! And hold the line on the debt!! Obama would spend us into oblivion if given the chance.
If it takes taking away Hussein's EBT card, so be it.
I guess being a total pussy goes along with having Lindsey for a name.....
Go home, you are no longer wanted or welcomed...
Why not let the Harry Reid shutdown and President Obama’s sequestration become permanent along with partial non-funding of Obamacare of course?
Linda sounds like a metrosexual quitter. It’s too tough to stop ObamaCare and you’re not being a “good person” if you try to stop communism anyway, right Linda?!
Well, we now know that it’s impossible for Linda to stop it.
Sen. Graham is so anxious to suck up to Obama and surrender he doesn’t even think about using the built-in constitutional tools available to check the runaway criminal/Marxist government. “Limited government” is not in the RINO vocabulary.
Freep You Lindsay Graham (FULG)!!
They said the same thing about Slavery, Segregation and even Imperial Rule by England.
They were wrong.
Soon to be, EX-SENATOR Grahamnesty, the current butt buddy of Juan McNuts.
If you give up before starting to fight you’ve already lost.
Right on the money. Seems too many don’t understand the House power of the purse, and are drawn into the diversionery bullscoot shoved down their throats by the Leftists.
We have to keep hammering them with the truth about how Congress ACTUALLY works.
Graham acts as Mitt Romney’s obedient wife
and as a shameless traitorous whore to al Qaeda.
If the Republicans were as stalwart as the Dems, it would be the Dems who had to say “there was no reasonable chance of funding Obamacare.” It’s a staring contest and our side likes to blink when they’re not crying their eyes out.
I cant wait until the he loses his job next year..
Just based on how the Obamacare exchange rollout is going, I’d say Obamacare has an excellent chance of stopping itself, without any assistance from Republicans. Combine gross gov’t incompetence with a defiance of personal economic behavior, and you have, to quote Democrat Sen. Max Baucus, a “train wreck”.
