Eric Cantor and John Boehner Donít Really Want to Repeal Obamacare
RedState ^ | June 30th, 2010 | Erick Erickson

Well, it is official.

Eric Cantor and John Boehner — particularly Eric Cantor — have decided they don’t need or want conservatives and, more troubling, do not have any intention of trying to win at the polls by forcing Democrat hands on Obamacare.

Our leadership is behaving badly.

Last week and on Monday I mentioned Rep. Steve King’s effort to repeal Obamacare and start over. He’s filed a discharge petition. If he gets 218 signatures, Nancy Pelosi must hold a vote

Both parties love Obamacare for different reasons.

Just like they love illegal immigration and want to pass amnesty.

The sad fact is voting for Republicans in November is primarily a vote for ACA and Amnesty.

I was just going to post elsewhere that we will truly know the state of our Republic on November 4th after the election, then quickly realized that it doesn’t matter if republicans win... they will sell us out to the amnesty/lowinfo crowd just for hopes of votes.

We are seriously done.

Both parties are fighting for the LIV/Democrat base.

Two sides of the same coin. The GOP-e and the DNC have joined forces, and the losers are the American people.

When the federal government fears the people, and through fear and intimidation try to put down any dissent, you know that you have reached the point of no return. At this point, it comes down to tyranny or rebellion.

As a matter of fact most if not all employers dump their employees into Obamacare. Everyone will be buying Health Ins like car ins. except now it will be mandated that you must have health ins.

They must be paid off. Maybe we could raise some money and buy both just like the DNC has and others.

That’s not true! Some Republicans support amnesty and don’t want to eliminate Obamacare. We don’t know the exact number, but I think it’s safe to say better than half of the Republicans oppose both the ACA and amnesty. Compare that to the Democrats who are ready to fall on their swords for Obamacare and would vote in lockstep for amnesty.

My point? If we can’t beat them in the primaries, we can still sacrifice a few House elections to eliminate Republican leaders like Boehner and Cantor. It won’t cost us the House. Even if we can’t get them out of office, we can tell our own representatives to vote against Boehner and Cantor for leadership. The battle is hardly over.

I’m also saying some of us have representatives and senators who are fighting the good fight against the statists in both parties. We need to support those freedom fighters and keep battling the statists. It’s a never ending battle, because Washington D.C. makes more (statists), but the alternative is a federal government that consumes virtually every aspect of our lives.

Why should they?

They don’t have a dog in the fight.

At this juncture it is curiously ludicrous to refer to the GOPe as “our “ leadership.

It pains me to say you are right. I am going to vote but I have no hope it will do any good. We are now beyond the ballot box.

Rand Paul On Shutdown: "Even Though It Appeared I Was Participating In It, It Was A Dumb Idea"
I said throughout the whole battle that shutting down the government was a dumb idea. Even though it did appear as if I was participating in it, I said it was a dumb idea. And the reason I voted for it, though, is that it's a conundrum. Here's the conundrum. We have a $17 trillion debt and people at home tell me you can't give the president a blank check. We just can't keep raising the debt ceiling without conditions. So unconditionally raising the debt ceiling, nobody at home wants me to vote for that and I can't vote for that. But the conundrum is if I don't we do approach these deadlines. So there is an impasse. In 2011, though, we had this impasse and the president did negotiate. We got the sequester. If we were to extend the sequester from discretionary spending to all the entitlements we would actually fix our problem within a few years.
