    If Boehner and his House RINOs Cave In, and do NOT defund the Communist Law Obamacare, have they led us into the no escape, Communist Box Canyon called Obamacare? If Obamacare is not defunded by Boehner, Cantor and Ryan, then a name change is in order. Suggestions are as follows: BOEHNERCARE, or RINOCARE. Note: Capital letters are preferred to remind us of the Capital offense these sorry RINOs will have done to our descendants. In this way we can more accurately be reminded of who the real enemies of Freedom of Choice really are: Boehner and his House RINOs. What...

    Investors expect 4 million Americans to initially enroll in the state insurance marketplaces created under President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, according to a survey released on Monday, as concerns mount that technical glitches could present obstacles to enrollment. The expectations of the investors - hedge funds, institutional clients and other investors surveyed by Citigroup, 56 in total - fall far short of a Congressional Budget Office forecast that 7 million Americans will seek subsidized health coverage through the online exchanges. Starting on October 1, Americans have six months to enroll for coverage in 2014.

    The Service Employees International Union is teaming with the Department of Health and Human Services to encourage health care coverage through a new marketplace. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Tuesday welcomed SEIU's help at a news conference at Allegheny General Hospital. The SEIU will focus on Pennsylvania and 13 other states where there are concentrations of people without health care coverage to get them enrolled starting Oct. 1. SEIU members will help convince the uninsured to enroll in the health care marketplace, called an exchange.

    House Republican leaders said Tuesday they will try to force the Democratic-led Senate to vote on defunding President Barack Obama's health-care law before the House will agree to enact a stopgap government-funding measure. "Our goal here is not to shut down the government," House Speaker John Boehner told reporters in Washington. "Our goal is to cut spending and to stop Obamacare." -SNIP- everal Republicans expressed opposition because they said they see the strategy as non-binding. "Every member of the conference said they're going to do everything they can to defund Obamacare, and our leadership said in there they know this...

    Via Facebook: Forced enrollment in Obama’s "Unaffordable Care Act" is weeks away. This beast must be stopped — by not funding it. Today, Todd and I joined with many of our fellow citizens to urge those in the U.S. Senate to not fund Obamacare. We The People must continue to make our voices heard and hold those elected to serve this great nation accountable. Those in the Senate and those seeking to serve there must stand strong against this devastating program before it reveals its true face now recognized by both sides of the aisle as the bureaucratic and economic...

    Sen. Jeff Flake dismissed the attacks being launched against him for refusing to embrace the no-holds-barred campaign to defund Obamacare that could lead to a government shutdown. “Oh, whatever,” Mr. Flake, Arizona Republican, said via Twitter. Mr. Flake’s response was highlighted Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” on which former Florida GOP Rep. Joe Scarborough, a co-host, called Mr. Flake a “real conservative.” “My party is pushing back on this,” Mr. Scarborough said. “These extremists are being shown to be extremists, and people are starting to stand up and say, ‘You know, if you want to destroy your political chances for...

    Michigan Governor Rick Snyder broke with other Republican governors this year to support Medicaid expansion through Obamacare, and the Senate is expected to approve a version of a bill passed by the state House in June. Republicans hold a 26-12 majority in the Senate, where Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville believes he has the support to approve the measure in a vote on Tuesday or Wednesday. Fewer than half of Senate Republicans are expected to vote for the bill, but Senate Democrats have pledged their support. If there is a 19-19 tie. The measure would infuse the state budget with...

    Tea Party activists are planning a rally outside Speaker John Boehner’s (R) Ohio office on Tuesday, vowing they will rebrand President Obama’s healthcare reform law “BoehnerCare" if he does not get behind a conservative effort to defund the legislation. “If he funds it, he will own it,” said Janet Porter, president of Faith2Action, one of the groups scheduled to participate in the rally, according to The Washington Times. Boehner, along with congressional GOP leaders like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), has yet to voice support for the effort. A group of right-wing lawmakers vowed before the August recess to...

    Tea party activists are planning to rally outside of House Speaker John A. Boehner’s Ohio office on Tuesday, telling the Republican speaker that if he doesn’t use this year’s spending fight to defund the health care law, it will hence be known to them as “BoehnerCare.” “If he funds it, he will own it,” said Janet Porter, president of Faith2Action, one of the groups participating in the rally.
  • The 'Untouchable' $23.6 Billion Funding Obamacare

    Big Government ^ | March 16, 2011 | Ernest Istook
    Untouchable. That’s the treatment being given to the $23.6 billion being spent right now to implement Obamacare. This $23.6 billion is part of the $105.5 billion appropriated by the last Congress to fund Obamacare. The remainder (Think of it as post-dated checks for the other $81.9 billion.) automatically becomes available between now and FY2019. None of this is to be confused with an additional $115 billion authorized for additional appropriation to Obamacare—but which the current Congress is unlikely to provide. The most pressing question, however, is whether any of the current $23.6 billion will be rescinded as part of the...
  • Congress Must Stop $105.5 Billion in Automatic Obamacare Spending

    Thanks to the irrepressible Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, who is emerging as the most energetic and principled conservative leader of the 112th Congress, the Congressional Research Service published a report on Feb. 10 detailing how the Obama administration is planning to spend $105.5 billion that was put on an appropriations autopilot in the health care legislation the Democrat-majority Congress enacted last year. Unless the Republican-controlled House in this Congress can force President Obama to sign new legislation forbidding dispersal of this $105.5 billion, the administration will spend it to lay the basic foundations for a socialistic health care system in...

    In 568 words, what's wrong with 1,990 pages By: Byron York Chief Political Correspondent 10/31/09 10:44 AM EDT House Republican Leader John Boehner gave the Republican radio address today, and in 568 words made a simple and compelling case for what is wrong with the Democrats' 1,990-page health care proposal -- and for what should be done instead. "This 1,990 pages of bureaucracy will centralize health care decision making in Washington, DC," Boehner said. "It’ll require thousands of new federal employees. It’ll put unelected boards, bureaus, and commissions in charge of who gets access to what drug and what potentially...
