Posted on 04/08/2014 6:28:27 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Two House GOP moderatesReps. David Joyce (R-OH) and Mike Simpson (R-ID)made comments this week that are sure to infuriate the House GOP conference. In an interview published on YouTube as part of a series called Solon Speaks in Solon, Ohio, hosted by Terry Dean, Joyce said Obamacare is the law of the landand here to stay:
"The Affordable Care Act, like it or not, is the law of the land. The Supreme Court passed it. Now were struggling to implement what is the law of the land. In the last Congress, they put up 23 odd bills that tried to repeal it. It doesnt get repealed. The Senates not going to pass it and the Presidents not going to sign it. So its not going to be repealed. So when you deal with the premise that this is the law, and its the law of the land and we move forward, now were stuck with the implementation process and the implementation process is going to be where were going to have some of this falling-out because there are 23 some separate taxes that are involved here."
Later in the interview, Joyce further advocated for the implementation of Obamacarein a different manner than the President has adopted.
"It breaks my heart to see all these small businessmen come to me and say that theyre spending $50,000 on consultants trying to come in compliance with something that the government is still writing the regulations on. Its just wrong. We should have held off until we had the regulations and had exchanges in place and then implemented it in a way that everybody could understand it and then be able to make the decision on whether or not it was a good idea."
Joyce is a centrist Republican from Ohio...

This is why we need to dump the RINOs. Replace tehm with better Republicans or Constitutionalists or America’s Party or whomever will move the ball in our direction.
I’m sorry, there is no such thing as a “centrist”
republican, there are only RINOS and they should be
driven from the party.
Now there are “centrist” democrats, they are some
where between pure communists and socialist dupes.
We sure have a lot of innocent sounding euphemisms for SOCIALST
they are enablers and sympaticos to democrats/libs/socialists.
I can’t post what I’d like to say to them.
So I’ll just wish them a happy plague of rabid trouser gophers.
Earmarks are a tool used to perpetuate the corrupt power of the incumbant political class. They need to be abolished.
This might sound like a side note to this thread, but it really isn’t. The next time the states amend the Constitution, the amendment should include a provision to outlaw political party support for elected federal government leaders.
They are as big a threat as the progressives.
There are three parties. Socialists-which there are many, Liberals-which there are many, and conservatives-which there are few.
The former’s’ are in power and will never let power slip out of their hands.
Unless this changes, there is no way to solve the problem unless, the country splits apart.
Guillotines from orbit ... it’s the only way to clean the swamp.
Since when is Breitbart.com referring to RINOs as “moderates” and “centrists”? They are already dishonoring Andrew’s memory with a drift to socialism.
These guys are gone politically. Not even close. Adios.
Two House GOP moderatesReps. David Joyce (R-OH) and Mike Simpson (R-ID)....are TOAST!
B. Hussein Obama continues unimpeded as the arrogant Democrat leader of the Left Wing, Anti-Work Counterculture thanks to doormat Republicans such as Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, Ryan, Issa, McConnell, and McCain.
Counterculture Democrats reap what they sow, and doormat Republicans gladly provide the fertilizer.
What can possibly go wrong?
Just see my tag line.
Another reason to send the congresscritters home and govern electronically. Make them look constituents in the eye when they say stupid s@#t.
2nd Amendment is the law of the land. Supreme Court passed it and Incorporated it. Like it or not, it’s here to stay. If Obamacare is bullet proof, so is my Right to own any firearm I want.
