Sen. Graham to Republicans: 'Face Reality That ObamaCare Cannot Be Stopped'
FOX News ^ | Oct 13, 2013 | FOX News Insider

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 president’s unwillingness to compromise with Republicans as “immature.”

Today on America’s 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, “I’m not going to vote for any deal coming out of the Senate that doesn’t have a reasonable chance of getting a majority of House Republicans understanding that defunding and delaying ObamaCare is a bridge too far.”

Sen. Graham is pathetic. If the Republican controlled House does not fund obamaCare, it doesn't get funded. It's as simple as that. And there's not a thing the pathetic Obama or Reid or the pathetic Graham, McCain, McConnell, et al can do about it.

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.

Why not let the Harry Reid shutdown and President Obama’s sequestration become permanent along with partial non-funding of Obamacare of course?

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)!!

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.

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.

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”.

He digs deeper and deeper. I have been happy to see how the flailing economy has exposed the true Democrat party these past few years. It seems to have a similar effect on exposing the idiotic RINOs. Toss LG down the steps of Congress with all the others!!

Commie girlymen like Linda make me want to puke. Our immigration enforcement laws and the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights can be stopped by the DemocRATS but communism can't be stopped by the Republicans. That SOB isn't an American, he's a crybaby.

Prohibition was stopped. It may have taken 13 years and a Constitutional amendment to do it, but they did it.

And an amendment is harder to do than repealing a law.

It needs to have the proverbial stake driven in its heart now. Congress knows how to “fix” disastrous legislation by piling on “fixes” that make it even more costly and complicated without actually killing it. See, for example, the IRS code.

Within the ranks of the Republican Party there be traitors to the Constitution.
Lindsay Graham, John McCain, Peter King --- and every other damn RINO Quisling attempting to undermine the efforts to defund ObamaCare.
ObamaCare can be stopped.

Else the American Dream is essentially over.

“It’s as simple as that.”

That is so true. Why can’t Republicans catch on to the talking point strategy that Democrats have perfected and explain it to the American people? It is a right, granted by the Constitution. The democrats have Americans believing that the Republicans are just being pissy, like Obama.

Linseed Graham should face reality. ObamaCare could be killed if cowards like himself would support the fight to do it.

Instead of attacking the Tea Party he needs to attack the Idiots that jammed this disaster down our throats.

Shut up, Graham. It can be stopped.

As it rolls out, the costs are enormously more than what was told to America.

If just ONE media outlet would let a whisper of this out, a force of American people could storm the Bastogne and demand it be stopped.

But Graham doesn’t have that leadership bone in his body. His bones are all political, the rubbery, bendable, flexible kind.
