Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who Republicans chose to respond to President Obamas State of the Union address this year, says Republicans are giving up on Obamacare. Theyre going to start tinkering with it instead, thereby setting the stage for it staying around.
Once the GOP fixes all the objectionable parts, therell be no reason to scrap it, but therell also be no funding mechanisms. All the objectionable parts, like the mandates, have to do with funding Obamacare. But the GOP is giving up, just as I and others have said they would. McMorris Rodgers, in the House Republican Leadership, would know. She echoes many of the intellectual voices of the Republican establishment who have been building the case for accepting Obamacare, rather than repealing it.
Likewise, she joins John Boehner in suggesting immigration reform will come up this year.
Folks, it is no secret that the Chamber of Commerce and K Street Republicans are pouring money into races to crush conservatives. They are outspending most of their conservative competitors. While you and I may think this is going to be a long term disaster for the GOP, the House leadership, the voices they listen to in the DC-NYC corridor, and business leaders think you and I need to be stopped. So they are going all in writing checks we cant counter.
They want immigration reform and they want to give up on Obamacare. The only way to stop them is to beat them in the primaries. And right now it looks like there wont be a lot of that. The only way to counter them is to get involved against them in primaries right now. Primaries matter.
Comprehensive immigration reform is coming and the fight against Obamacare is going away unless conservatives get some wins in the primaries.

Greg Brannon for Senate!
Cathy McMorris Rodgers McRino should be primaried.
There are no further efforts to repeal Obamacare, and Boehner & Co. pass amnesty.
That means many conservatives will sit out the mid-term elections, which means the GOP will probably just maintain the status quo, a House majority and still a Senate minority.
A golden opportunity lost, right?
Who among us think the GOPE will care? Their power and wealth and perks in DC will remain undisturbed.
Dems on the move in Rowan County. These scum are organized and will do it everywhere.
BTW I will support Brannon in the primary for US Senate.
I don’t know about anyone else, but if that happens I won’t sit home. I will go out and do something I once considered impossible: I will vote Democrat. (But only against the Boehner/McCain-type RINO candidates.)
“...That means many conservatives will sit out the mid-term elections, which means the GOP will probably just maintain the status quo....Who among us think the GOPE will care? Their power and wealth and perks in DC will remain undisturbed.”
It’s not a matter of the GOPe not caring. What you are describing is clearly the goal. Conservatives are the GOPe’s true opponent, as we endanger the money-printing machine.
Democrats are just business partners the GOP has fun competing with.
One thing about it, when it all goes south the rinos will go with it. As far as I’m concerned, I want to see the GOP go completely away.
I think a better way to protest would be pick a third party and vote for them. In fact it’s not too early to start scouting one out. Obviously a third party isn’t going to win but if one got, say, 20% of the vote it would scare the pants off the republicrats.
