House GOP Leaders Indicate They Will Fund Implementation of Obamacare (No Cojones)
cnsnews.com ^ | A.D. 24 July 2012 | Elizabeth Harrington and Jon Street

Posted on 07/25/2012 6:56:54 AM PDT by Robert Drobot

(CNSNews.com) –When asked whether the House Republicans would permit or not permit funding for Obamacare in whatever legislation is enacted to fund the government after Sept. 30--when the current funding legislation runs out--House Speaker John Boehner responded that "our goal would be to make sure the government is funded," thus indicating that House Republicans do plan to fund implementation of Obamacare past Sept. 30.

Unless a special provision is put into the bill to fund the government past Sept. 30 that expressly prohibits funding specifically for the Obamacare regulation that requires health-care plans to cover, without cost-sharing, sterilizations, artificial contraceptives and abortifacients, the House Republicans, by funding implementation of Obamacare, will also be funding implementation of that regulation.

The sterilization-contraceptives-abortifacient regulation takes effect on Aug. 1.

Boehner’s position had been echoed by Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in a press briefing on Monday.

Screwed again, and again, and again.

Boehner the ball-less.

Let’s start a campaign to ditch this worthless piece of Obamastuff.

That would consist of a primary challenger to Weepy John with unlimited funding.

And just wait if Romney wins the Presidency and the Republicans take the Senate and hold the House, then the excuse will be...

"Well..... Obamacare is pretty deeply entrenched now, it would cost more to repeal than to just put it on cruise control, we're not really interested in wasting our political capital fighting past battles anyway, instead of a repeal, we think we can makes some changes around the edges to make it more palatable to conservatives, maybe tinker with the individual mandate because folks don't really like that. But there really is some good stuff in there too, no need throwing the baby out with the bathwater..."

Make no mistake, there are as many Republicans that like big government as there are democrats. The only difference is who's supporters the money get funneled toward.

You are right.

Neither party is worth a pint of sour owl pee.

Vote out all incumbents.

The House Republicans have just been putting on a show, deep down they want this as bad as the Democrats, they crave power just like they do.

“Boehner the ball-less.”

And so it begins. The GOPelite “tweaks” to obamacare begins. And it starts by paying for this trainwreck.

I hate to say "I told you so!" ... but this is exactly what I predicted the day ObamaCare passed in 2010. Took a lot of crap here on FreeRepublic, too (but I don't mind!). I hate being right sometimes.

For the GOP it's not about "power" as much as it is about gradually taking one of the highest cost items off the backs of American businesses and putting it on the backs of the taxpayers.

Isn't American business also the taxpayer, though. Seems like a bad way to go about it. I don't doubt your logic, because RINO politicians are just as short-sighted and incompetent as the Democrat ones.

Very simple solution.

They should pass a CR that expires at the end of January. It is no surprise that Boehner does not want another confrontation on the budget. If the next congress wants they can restore funding cut by the automatic budget cuts before they take effect, or pass new cuts.

I still think it was bad that the last lame duck congress Reid/Pelosi was able to extend the Bush tax cuts January 2010 when Republicans were in the weakest position. Now they dont know how to stop extending the FICA tax cuts, or alternatively cut spending.

The thing to keep in mind is that a company's employees will have no reason to complain to the company anymore about the quality of their health care when it's a government bureaucracy that manages the whole thing.

At the same time, a bloated, inefficient government operation can be a major opportunity for private business. Think about it: if the U.S. Postal Service was a well-run operation, would companies like UPS and FedEx be anywhere near as big as they are today?

Those who did not see this coming were lying to themselves. We all want Obama gone, and that is why the RNC forced romney on us. They reasoned that everyone is so scared of Obama, they will vote for anyone, including a liberal. It was the election they were waiting for-get rid of conservatives. Many bought into the belief that only romney can win. If a conservative had won the primary, he/she would be kicking Obama’s butt, but romney and obama are social ideology twins. So, conservatism is no longer our goal, but obeying the rnc so they can play the game. Why not, there is no conservative to vote for. Voting third party would be like fighting in the American Revolution, but without all the blood. Not many are brave enough to fight in that battle. They’d rather drink the tea than throw it in the harbor. Where have all the brave people gone who will defend the constitution rather than the rnc? I know there are many here at FR who play chess. They can see what is coming down the line with either romney are obama.

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”

Expect every one of the 127 House Republicans who wrote to Bonehead to throw up their hands exclaiming they were powerless to stop the demand by their own leaders to fund the communist takeover of American medicine......

AND

.......putting into motion the iron fist control over who, how, when and where we, American Citizens, are permitted to receive medical care.

Seventy-five years ago ( Germany ), sixty years ( Korea ), forty years ago ( Vietnam ) not one American Citizen would have volunteered to give life or limb to defeat those dictatorships had they known America would evolve into a dictatorship as equally callous, and equally ruthless.

Mind you, I do believe that health insurance should be decoupled from employment..it puts American workers, at a disadvantage with temp workers, and offshored employees, in which the company doesn’t have to worry about covering their insurance.

That should create a market for competitive health care plans where private companies compete for business. But unfortunately, it appears Washington is going to force government care on us.

All a bunch of hot air. Incumbents are rarely voted out. We complain and complain daily and nothing changes. Senator Brown is an incumbent who votes with the Democrats all the time, but guess what? Republicans and even FREEPERS say, but you have to vote for him......I think they like to complain is the bottom line.

House Republicans do plan to fund implementation of Obamacare past Sept. 30.

THIS is your republican party....should I say, republocrat party.

The country seriously needs a 2 party system.

Vote Constitution Party, 2012...ESPECIALLY in Solid Blue Obama States.

If the ABO logic is this: "I must hold my nose and vote for Romney because he is the only one who can defeat Obama", then that logic does NOT hold in a blue state like California or New York or Oregon, etc. ROMNEY has no chance there and in those places, so you don't have to HOLD YOUR NOSE. You can vote for a conservative in the presidential race, and it won't matter at all to the outcome in your state.

It WILL, however, send a message to the GOP-E, that conservatives are tired of liberal candidates.

Hi all... there is still time to nominate a conservative who WILL repeal Obamacare, get rid of the Dept of Ed and any other wasteful dept, etc. We should be encouraging this.

I don’t think much will change even if Romney could beat Obama, which I don’t think he can anyway.
