GOP House Approves CR That Funds All Obamacare—Including Regulation Attacking Religious Freedom
Cybercast News Service ^ | March 6, 2013 | Terence P. Jeffrey

Posted on 03/06/2013 5:08:11 PM PST by Olog-hai

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted 267-151 on Wednesday to approve a $982-billion continuing resolution (CR) to fund the federal government through the rest of fiscal 2013 that fully funds the implementation of Obamacare during that period.

The House Republican leaders turned aside requests from groups of conservative members to include language in the bill that would have withheld funding for implementation of all of Obamacare, or, alternatively, that would have withheld funding for the Obamacare regulation that requires health-plans to provide cost-free coverage for sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs. …

The Roman Catholic bishops of the United States have unanimously declared that the sterilization-contraception-abortifacient regulation—whose enforcement will now be carried out with funds approved by the Republican-controlled House—is an “unjust and illegal mandate” that violates the “personal civil rights” of individual Americans. …

It is the Republican Party. Boehner is the symptom, not the problem.

We have lost the culture war. Not surprisingly since both parties have been against us all along.

The people had best be thinking about how to prepare for the repercussions of losing the culture war. How far are we willing to go to remain free men? We are going to be given some pretty stark (and bleak) choices in the near future.

This version was designed for the sole purpose of granting flexibility to the Pentagon sequester budget. This way, it has a chance to pass the Senate. Adding any other items from the wish list will kill it.

The vast majority of the country now positively hates our believes about marriage and sexuality. That includes the Blue Blood Republicans like Boehner. Heck, they were pro-abortion and pro-contraception before the Democrats started making abortion their litmus test—so that the Country Clubbers could take get rid of the evidence of their “indiscretions.”

They hate us and anyone who stands for traditional sexual and marital morality. That includes Boehner.

The only way out now is through the fire. 2/3 of the country wants sexual license, libertinism. And they will fight like hell to keep things that way. We are their worst enemies and they know it. We must be crushed.

Lincoln's lofty hope seems to be in immediate danger. I had hoped that the Republicans would stand up for freedom, but no luck there. Government of the people, by the people, and for the people is flickering like a match in the wind.

What part of lying down and cowering before the 'Rats in the House and in the White House makes the RINOs proud?

What part of "get rid of Omabacare don't they understand?

How is the organizing that third party going? We have less than two years to make the GOP leadership meaningless in reality as well as effective reputation.

yes ConorMacNessa. and that is why, although i have worked for conservative republicans, i have never joined their party. their collective actions since 2010, when we put them in power are shameful. we have a very few conservatives among them.

however, would start a recall of boehner if i was a republican in his district.

Those opposed, especially those that claim religious exemption - should not comply.

Those opposed should not comply.

If anything goes against a fundamental belief, a fundamental right, and that belief or right is ingrained within the soul, non compliance is the only answer.

Scary huh?

This appears to be the whigging of the GOP. 0-care is unpopular and untenable; resistance to 0-care could be a winning issue for them, but still, the GOP goes all in for big government.
Now, it appears inevitable that the conservatives and libertarians will quit the GOP and form a 3rd party.

"Vote republican or the liberals win. Wait..."

They are only fighting each other over control of the people. We are just the useful idiots who listen to them. I almost think that it would be better if the rats control everything. Lets get it over with already. We are in a slow death spiral and must realize that the only thing these guys do is wind us up when it fits there narrative. Keep watching the next survivor or check out the new phone that is coming out.

People must realize that their is no 2 party rule.

The GOP is going to vote for single-payer before the decade is out.

The party has surrendered to the Left. With sell-outs like this, who needs a GOP House majority when they vote like Democrats?

FYI....

Of the 151 members of the House who voted against this CR, only 14 were Republicans. They included: Justin Amash (Mich.), Jim Bridenstine (Okla.), Broun (Ga.), Ron DeSantis (Fla.), Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.), John J. Duncan Jr. (Tenn.), Phil Gingrey (Ga.), Louie Gohmert (Tex.), Jack Kingston (Ga.), Tom McClintock (Calif.). Thomas Massie (Ky.), Bill Posey (Fla.), Matt Salmon (Ariz.), and Steve Stockman (Tex.).

Jim Bridenstine (Okla.) is my rep...Freshman that was TP endorsed.

May God bless these 14 brave men. Remember them and hope they become the few that come together to form a new conservative movement to retake America. Support them and others who will do what is right, who will stand against the dark storm and fight for a constitutional republic under God's laws. The TEA Party was a good start, now we need to push on to bring in more who understand the peril our society faces.

Thanks.

It is truly pathetic that only two Texans voted for shutting the damned US Federal Government down until they pass a Federal Budget, as required by the US Constitution.

These are the only 14 worthy to be called Republicans in the US House of Representatives, as quoted from the above article as follows:

” - - - Of the 151 members of the House who voted against this CR, only 14 were Republicans. They included:

Justin Amash (Mich.),
Jim Bridenstine (Okla.),
Broun (Ga.),
Ron DeSantis (Fla.),
Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.),
John J. Duncan Jr. (Tenn.),
Phil Gingrey (Ga.),
Louie Gohmert (Tex.),
Jack Kingston (Ga.),
Tom McClintock (Calif.).
Thomas Massie (Ky.),
Bill Posey (Fla.),
Matt Salmon (Ariz.),
and Steve Stockman (Tex.). - - - “

Sadly, the other Texans are henceforth proven to be Left Wing RINOs, a shame for all Texans to endure until the National Election of 2014.

Well, here's your problem. This government is "of the people". Americans voted for Obama, the second time with no way of misunderstanding what he represents.

That's the sorry state of affairs we have allowed to happen around us. Now we have a lot of work to do if we hope to undo it.
