Mitch McConnell Votes to Fund Obamacare
Red State ^ | 3/21/2013 | Erick Erickson

Posted on 03/21/2013 4:23:56 AM PDT by IbJensen

Hey, remember that awesome CPAC speech by Mitch McConnell?

The one where Mitch McConnell said — and I quote — “Obamacare should be repealed root and branch. And we’re not backing down from this fight.”

And the same speech where Mitch McConnell also said, “This law is a disaster, and anybody who thinks we’ve moved beyond it is dead wrong.”

Well, as I told you, Mitch McConnell excels at saying one thing and doing another. Yesterday, Mitch McConnell voted to fund Obamacare.

Hey Utah, he joined Orrin Hatch in doing so. Remember, just last year on the campaign trail Orrin Hatch told you all how he was going to absolutely fight to rid us of Obamacare at all costs. And he got a large portion of the conservative movement to cheer him on as a result.

Yeah, that Orrin Hatch voted to fund Obamacare too.

And now for the punchline — the majority of the Republicans in the Senate voted against funding Obamacare. McConnell and Hatch were in the minority of Republicans who chose to side with the Democrats and fund Obamacare.

Here is the full list of the Republicans who voted for the Ted Cruz amendment to defund Obamacare, but then flipped their votes to actually vote to fund Obamacare : ◾Alexander (R-TN)

◾Barrasso (R-WY)

◾Blunt (R-MO)

◾Boozman (R-AR)

◾Chambliss (R-GA)

◾Coats (R-IN)

◾Cochran (R-MS)

◾Collins (R-ME)

◾Corker (R-TN)

◾Cornyn (R-TX)

◾Hatch (R-UT)

◾Hoeven (R-ND)

◾Isakson (R-GA)

◾Johanns (R-NE)

◾McConnell (R-KY)

◾Murkowski (R-AK)

◾Sessions (R-AL)

◾Shelby (R-AL)

◾Thune (R-SD)

◾Wicker (R-MS)

I cannot do it even if McConnell wins the primary. McConnell is voting just like Ashley the idiot would.

Money is still money and Mitch isn’t going to damage the commonwealth just to satisfy the current political mood. The Governor and the state assembly knows how damaging this would be to the budget and to large regional medical centers. You may call him a fool, but this was not a foolish vote.

They’re voting on a continuing resolution so the gov’t doesn’t get shut down and the media has a fit and blames the GOP.

The time to work on Obamacare is when the normal budget process collides with the next debt ceiling hike.

No, if the GOP doesn’t fight Obamacare now they never will.

It’s not shut down the government or nothing. The GOP could have voted to defund it and demanded the Dems account for the trillion dollar cost overruns before the pass the CR. Make them sweat for a few weeks. Let people see what liars & buffoons they are. But the beltway GOP won’t even do that.

The beltway GOP just won’t engage in the heavy lifting required to fight the Dem/media complex. They don’t have it in them.

Right now we have no credible opposition to the kenyan and this is the result. Another surrender.

Try reading my previous post again. If the GOP halts the gov’t by not passing the CR, then the media will crucify them.

They don’t have the leverage now. They will when the debt ceiling is up and they can force the Dems to produce a budget.

Even then, we are the minority in the Senate, so we can’t just “defund” and “demand” the Dems do anything.

It’s about governing, not throwing tantrums.

The Arsehole McConnell is running ads on talk radio at every commercial break where he states that ‘I have opposed Obamacare at every step of the way’.

What a lying sack! Amazing how you can sue a company for false advertising, but not a politician who continues to lie to our faces.

There’s no way to Primary McConnell - as much as I would wish. The Ruling Class machine here in KY will lay waste to anyone daring to unseat those in power. It’s the good ol’ boys network in conjunction with the Chicago machine.

I didn’t say the GOP had to shut down the gov. I said they had to fight. This is political warfare. The Dems are out to destroy us and control the country. They go about by battling every single day. I expect the same from the people I voted for.

Why is gay marriage and immigration dominating the news? Because the Dems don’t want to talk about the economy and no budget barack. Why is the beltway GOP letting them set the agenda WITHOUT a fight?

My main issue with the GOP isn’t the losing. I know the GOP is a minority. The problem is the lack of fight. Being lead from one crisis to the next by the nose.

We have had numerous new reports of the exploding cost estimates for kenyancare in recent days. Now is an appropriate time to slow the train and press the dems. But Boehner and McConnell refused to fight. Like always. That’s why they lose.

Yes I figured he was going to act like Ted Cruz's little brother until 2014, then pull a McCain and go back to being RINO. Ne needs to be primary challenged, send him where we sent Dewhurst.

That is an example of your average and typical leftist (formerly called liberals) these days. They ‘think’ that anyone that opposes Obama is an elderly white racist that will die off in the next few years or decade...and after that it will be ‘smooth-sailing’ for the Obama-slurpers and their commie ilk.

They’d be wrong about that, too.

The GOP doesn’t want to repeal obamacare. They just want to talk about repealing it.

The priority of beltway GOP has always been a deal where they get a cut of the spending pie.

The beltway GOP just does not care about the country. It’s all about personal gain to them. If they cared they would stand and fight. They don’t because it’s not important to them. Take away their pensions and you would see a brawl.

Just like how they used their leverage during the lame duck 2010 session?

Just like how they used their leverage during the 2011 debt ceiling debate?

Just like how they used their leverage during the 2012 debt ceiling debate?

What leverage do Republicans have when Boehner says he trusts Obama completely, Pelosi says she "smokes Boehner out," and McConnell undermines Boehner during the debt ceiling debates?

Sorry, we get the same results with Mitch or Ashley, just differing rates of speed.

Its time for a balanced budget based on cutting some federal departments out completely like EPA and OSHA.

They can be done by the states.

Spending and debt must stop now or never.....

Conservatives have no representation.

The New World Order socialists will get their one-world government and the Republicans will help them. Daddy Bush was a little more blatant that the GOP of the last 15 years, but they all are in this together.

We are being sold out. The GOP wants similar things to the commie dems.

We have no representation. The USA is being destroyed to clear the way for one-world government and both parties want this. People are delusional to think we can stop that by voting and writing our “representatives.”

The Fix is In. We have been doomed for a long time.

I’m not sure what you think “cogent” means.

It’s not really worth arguing with those who cant understand that politics is about what is possible.

Since you claim not to want a shutdown, but want the GOP to fight for a little while, then cave, i dont see the point.

They should hold up govt business, threaten a shutdown over a repeal that will never happen?

Sorry, that isnt smart.

What do Mitch McConnell and Ashley Judd have in common?

Both are actors who spout lines that mean nothing in reality.

Both are politically useless with egos the size of Texas.

THIS IS WHY THE TEA PARTY WAS CREATED.

Bleed McConnell in the primary. Let him know that he is toast and that his renomination will cost the GOP a ton of donations that won’t be coming in.

Bleed and boycott. If Murkowski can run as a “third party” person, and WIN, then so can someone else who is a credible candidate.

And when Mitch McConnell wins his primary, Erick Erickson will support him in the general election. The Republican Party is more important to Erick Erickson than conservatism.

Don’t believe me? Go to Redstate and advocate a third party. You can be banned for it.

If you count the race for the Senate in that assessment, then expect nothing to change. Even in putting together a cohesive national strategy to retake the Senate, the Republicans punted, or as I think, were just too passive and incompetent to do it.

If they couldn't even muster the energy to fight to take the chamber, they will never fight to win a bill.

This generation of Republican leadership cowers from the power they have. It's their nature.

The times are a changing. I held my nose and went all in for Romney. No way would I pull the lever for these losers now. In talking to my friends, a lot of people feel this way now.

2014 is shaping up to be a bloodbath on the state level for the GOP. Look for a lot of GOP governors to go down. Scott, Martinez, Corbett, Walker, etc.

If the beltway GOP keeps kicking the base it won’t end well in 2014.

Please people realize we have a one party rule. He deserves to be fired; his lies are common speak to him. We need a new direction. Someone from the TP please convince Palin to go rogue so we all have a voice or to find someone like her (former military officer with a good record that does not scare people) so we have representation.

Just no fight in the beltway GOP. It’s so easy, I could help. How about Boehner’s interview last week...

Presstitute: Do you trust the POTUS?

Boehner: That’s a great question. Let me tell you, I trusted he would deliver a budget as required by law on Feb. 4. Then I trusted him when he said it would be delivered late on March 14th. I trusted him when he said Obamacare would cost $900 billion and not add a dime to our debt, etc. etc.,

Now let me ask you a question Mr. MSM: Do you think I should trust that the 500 people working in the Obama White House Office of (mis)Management and (no)Budget will produce a budget to arrive on April 8th?

That is what we need to see. OFFENSE. Every. Single. Day. Win the day. If they want our votes they need to earn them. It’s no longer good enough just to be not Democrats.

The point is you force the Dems to face their lies and buffoonery. Get them out of their comfort zone and wait for mistakes.

No more free passes.

Why is the Chairman of the RNC holding a press conference and spouting Dem talking points like how mean the GOP is? That is crazy. That whole election autopsy sideshow was an unbelievable fiasco.

Why is Boehner giving interviews and not hammering Obama for $6 trillion in no debt and no budget. It makes no sense.

The dems get away with murder and we barely get a peep out of the beltway GOP. This lack of communication is a huge part of why they are losing.

From a commenter on this article:

I am so sorry that RedState has characterized a vote for the Continuing Resol. as a vote to fund ObamaCare. This CR does so much more…from funding our entire Dept of Defense, to funding Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Vets programs, etc…It funds the entire Federal Government and all of its programs. Sen. Cruz tried to de-fund ObamaCare. It failed. Should Senators then vote to defeat the entire government funding because they couldn’t defund ObamaCare in this bill? I am guessing it that were the action taken by the entire GOP Senate, that this would be viewed as irresponsible, extreme and unreasonable. I would hope Mr. Erickson and his team could chose better phrasing when sending out fundraising material on the issue of defunding ObamaCare. We need to be more about re-building America than scoring fundraising points (using an inaccurate narritive) on the backs of the GOP leadership. Just a suggestion. keep the faith!

Sorry FRiend, you don’t get it.

The beltway GOP are not credibly opposing the Democrats. The Dems are fighting to win and transform the country. The GOP is fighting to get a deal with a slice of the action. That’s the difference and why they are losing. It’s also the reason they are content being the minority party.

Just one example is no Senate budget for over 3 years. Now Obama is in violation of the budget law. Yet we hear hardly a word from the GOP leadership about it. Compare that to how Bush was pounded about EVERYTHING on a daily basis by Reid & Pelosi. That’s how you win but it takes a lot of work. The current GOP leadership don’t have that revolutionary fight in them.

What it is not is a budget.

The endless stream of continuing resolutions is only there because Senate Democrats refuse to pass a budget and let the regular legislative order proceed to House and Senate reconciliation committees. Democrats don't want their own budget on the table, they're much happier having only the Ryan House budget out there for them to demonize.

And the Republicans seem fine with that, too.
