"I call them Kapo Republican’ts."

That's quotable. I wonder how a campaign poster with Graham a guard over a long line of old people going into a portal labeled "Obamacare" would play in the primary?

“...to suggest... that we could defund ObamaCare or delay it for a year by shutting down the government, I think was unrealistic.”

Well, then forget about 0'care as impetus, and shut down the govt over the economy-killing so-called-one-time $787 Billion stimulus package that gets rolled into the No-Budget continuing resolutions for the last 3 years. This slush fund is there EVERY YEAR because Reed (sick0) won't allow a budget to come out of congress. Cut off this $787 Billion, and the deficit would be less than they were during the GWB years.

Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski can go home as well.

I know Fish Lips ain't up, the the Dem from AK is, all I can say it Run Todd Palin Run !

It would probably fry Murkowski to no end to know she would have to work with him for the State of Alaska, given she seems like an elitist and he is down to earth...

They said the same thing about Cruz’s “filibuster” and now Cruz is the frontrunner in the Republican Party. That could have been you Lindsey, if you had left the RINO party.

Not so fast. There are steps that can be taken, it just takes balls which is a foreign concept to Graham.

[snip] 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.” [/snip]

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3078431/posts

[snip] Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday he would not vote for a deal to reopen the government and raise the debt limit if it cannot attract support in the Republican-led House, arguing there is little point in claiming victory if a deal does not pass muster in the other chamber of Congress.

What the hell kind of “political leverage” is he looking for? James Madison, et al, gave the House the power of the purse and the power to DENY funding to a runaway government. It’s a tool designed for exactly this political situation. It’s (almost) fool proof. Just say no and there’s not a damn thing the president or senate can do about it.

...And then comes the fools.

Have the voters of SC considered petitioning Sen. Graham, demanding that he resign immediately? Or would a Democrat or even worse Constitution-ignoring RINO than Graham possibly take his place at this time?

Susan Collins is up in 2014.

The Republican party is Maine is dis-jointed, so I don’t see a primary challenge against her.

I will vote third party or write in someone else’s name....I’m done voting for RINO’s. Just wou’t do it anymore.

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.

yes!..........that Graham either doesn’t get the power of the purse being vested in the House or he does and has been bought off and wants Obamacare to satisfy his owners(big insurance to name just one) is just as sickening either way! I personally despise McCain and Graham. Why they don’t do themselves a big favor and just sit down and shut up is beyond me.

I just don’t see the connection you are attempting to make.

I’m sure it’s just me though, carry on.

Agree absolutely. Anytime you put politicians in charge of an engineering project, political considerations will take precedence over good engineering principles. And eventually the chickens come home to roost - the space shuttle crashes, or the bridge collapses, or the ObamaCare project (project Titanic) sinks.

The ACA puts too many levers of power in the hands of government for it to break down under its own weight. As it stands, they can just jettison the parts they don’t like to save the core of it. They know that the McCains and others are already on board with it. That if the Republicans were to elect a moderate Republican like McCain or Romney, he would accept it much as Ike accepted the New Deal in 1953.Right now their aim is to help their Republican allies regain full control of the congressional party.
