Republicans Look at Budget Maneuvers to Prevent Spending on New Health Law (Good Start!)
Fox News ^ | 11/7/2010 | fox news

Posted on 11/07/2010 8:30:08 AM PST by tobyhill

The Republican in line to lead the House Budget Committee acknowledged Sunday that the GOP is unlikely to get a repeal of a Democratic-backed health care law because President Obama can veto it, but said House Republicans will move forward on a vote anyway.

Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin said Republicans have some opportunities to slow the advance of the Democratic plan by defunding actual rollouts, but acknowledged the president would have to sign that legislation.

Cognizant of missing a presidential signature, Republicans are still looking at court challenges and other congressional maneuvers to stop enactment of elements of the law.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who appeared with Ryan on "Fox News Sunday," said in his capacity as the next House oversight committee chairman he is looking at alternative ways to stop the health care law, including preventing "administration earmarks."

Your way too nice. My motto:
REPEAL AND DEREGULATE. Get Govt completely out of health care. There the ones that have interfered with the free market system and caused higher costs.

Too nice? Well, I do what I do.

No matter how long I work on a graphic - whatever the subject - there are always those who have their version of what the caption should be. It makes sense, as "Caption this Photo" topics are popular here on FR.

However, If I went back and revamped the graphics to placate every suggestion, I would be too busy to sleep or eat.

I do a lot of these on-the-fly, and try to finish it before the topic that inspired it scrolls completely off the board, so sometimes the caption is not as well thought out as others, and sometimes I even make a spelling error.

I've got about 400 graphics on my source site, and that's few too many for me to revisit.

But thanks for the suggestion, I'll try harder next time.

Ryan and Cantor are very impressive.

Obama is up to his ass with the new leadership.

This is why it is vital that the Tea Party Republicans in the House get in, at the very start, to the house Rules and Appropriations Committees.

Right now, Obamacare is bailed up with lots of other stuff in a giant appropriations bill. It is up to Rules and Appropriations to separate it from those bills, and give the stuff we want to get rid of its own bill.

Once that is done, then they can vote for the good stuff, which Obama will sign, and has no reason *not* to sign. And then they don’t even to vote for the much smaller bills containing what they don’t want. By doing *nothing*, at that point, they win. And it won’t matter what the senate and the president do. Whatever is in that small bill will cease to exist.

But the Tea Party people must act very soon, because if the “old guard” Republicans get control of Rules and Appropriations, they will just niggle down what Obama wants by “nickels and dimes” instead of the guillotine.

Exactly. Let the Government either live within its means or fold and be forced to live within their means.

1) Completely defund it.

2) Pass a bill that says any state is free to ignore any and all provisions of Obamacare.

Only one thing needs to be done: In the name of "improving the health care bill to make it truly Universal Health Care,

The Republicans should immediately pass an amendment to the bill stating that members of Congress, the Executive and Judicial Branches, their families and staff are not exempt from any provision of the bill.

Make the amendment irrevocable.

Let's see the Democrats vote against that amendment.

Let's see Obama veto that provision.

Once the politicians realize that they too will have to be put into the same healthcare situations as the rest of us, once they realize that they too are subject to the bill's Death Panels, they will kill it in a New York nanosecond.

The House of Representatives allocates literally ALL MONEY to the federal government..
Including the Themselves, Executive Branch, the Senate and the Supremes..

I say the House needs to cut funding FIRST to themselves..
Send a strong message to the other branches YOU'RE NEXT...

THEN do it... slash and burn, prune the vine, streamline, modernize, revamp, make tidy, groom, apple pie order, spic and span, clean-cut, police, cut-back, dock, eliminate, exclude, gut, knock off, lop, pare down, reduce, shape, shave, shear, shorten, skive, snip, thin, get to the meat, put in a nutshell, reduce, summarize, take out, trim...

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

Excellent! I forgot about that. When the Reps tried to add that amendment during the health care debate, the Dems either wouldn't even allow a vote on it or voted it down. Now the Reps are back in charge they need to put it back in.

Great thinking!
