Rubio: We Can Stop the Obamacare Train(Demands that GOP shutdown the government till Obama caves)
newsmax ^ | 25 Jul 2013 | Paul Scicchitano

Posted on 07/26/2013 10:28:51 PM PDT by sickoflibs

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio warned in an op-ed on Thursday that there is “mounting evidence” Obamacare creates more problems than it solves and he called on lawmakers to stop the “disastrous” law from taking effect. “It is time to admit that Obamacare isn't going to work, decide not to waste a single cent more on it, and replace it with market-based reforms that will give people more health insurance choices and options,”

Rubio penned on the Fox News website. “It's still not too late. This September may be our last best chance to do anything about this disastrous law.” He accused President Barack Obama of not listening to the American people. “Instead of giving more speeches, .........

The first-term senator said that “we still have time to do something about this,” pointing to an upcoming September deadline for Congress to pass a short-term spending bill to fund the federal government. “We should pass one that keeps the government open, but doesn't waste any more money on Obamacare,” according to Rubio, who said that the president and his allies, including some Republicans will accuse him of threatening to shut down the government. “In fact, it is President Obama who insists on shutting down the government unless it funds his failed Obamacare experiment,” said Rubio.

Another sources says he challenged the GOP to show some guts and shut it down,

See? We owe Rubio a big apology.

He is demanding the GOP shutdown the government until Obama agrees to repeal Obama-care. What a tiger. What a fighter, What gonads.

Obama-care is history after this (but what do his buddies Schumer and Durbin say about this? Rubio did their dirty work for them on amnesty. )

Obama would go on vacation and wait them out. The Republicans would cave.

Surprised no-one posted this yet.

First Abortion and now this, not one of them will pass the Senate (unlike his amnesty bill) but his heart’s in the right place, right?

Here's how the BS meter works.
At the end of the day does Rubio get a repeal bill passed by Senate like he did amnesty? Or is this more empty GOP 'conservative' talk ?

A few years ago I parted with many here by scoffing at the woof-woof BS never intended to go anywhere,

Like the phony Ryan budget resolutions. I poo-pooed that scam right away, Too many just like the sound of barking and make believe its something.

He says we need to legalize them to pay our SS and medicaid, via payroll taxes.

He says they are all good practicing Catholics who will rebel against Obama as soon as we pass amnesty.

What could go wrong?

Do you think that Rubio got hoodwinked by McCain and Graham? I also wonder if he thought that because his parents came here from Cuba and worked hard -and let’s face it - he turned out rather well (except for being a part of the gang of 8) so, maybe, just maybe he thinks other illegals compare to his own parents. Just a thought.......and I could be way off base.

Maybe the stupids in the Senate convinced him that being a part of the amnesty bill would make him more popular and a front runner for the 2016 presidential election. And, maybe they used him because they convinced him that the GOP could win the Hispanic vote by him being the poster child.

Of course, these are just hypothetical, and he could really believe that this was good for America. If so, then he’s dumber than a box of rocks!

I will vote GOP if there is a candidate worthy to be voted for. And, yes, the Republicans do get outsmarted by the Dems because they ARE evil personified!

I was just trying to figure out why Rubio would ruin his career the way he did when most of us had such high hopes for him.

You are such a smart a** who seems to miss the point of what others post. Think you’re cute, don’t you? I’ll let you live with your delusion.

LOL,

If you look closely at what is exactly in the Senate bill , and then what Rubio when out of his way to claim was in that bill, then there is no other conclusion to make then that Rubio is outright deceitful.

He was the key for Dems in passing it in Senate.

How can he possibly claim to know what is in it?

I could never figure out why Republcians would give a rat’s ass about “shutting down the government”.
The only people who notice are people whose snouts hit the dry bottom of the public trough.
That is, the Democrat moocher class.

Shut it down (yawn), who cares?

Maybe he is deceitful, and maybe, like most of the Congress Critters - he didn’t even read that mammoth bill. All of them have their aides read the bills for them and just get a synopsis of what they contain.

What the heck are we paying them for if they can’t even read and write the bills they shove down our throats?

Why is the MSM giving the impression that Rubio is the only Republican doing anything? They cover everything he says so it’s impossible to miss seeing his name for even a day. I suspect that other Republicans do and say things that are just as newsworthy. I believe the MSM wants Rubio to stay and possibly to be the next RINO presidential candidate.

Rubio's a professional pol whose achievements outside of politics are nugatory. He got his degrees from third rate colleges, despite the Hispanic quota. And how he ended up with $100K in student loans after attending state universities is a marvel of financial mismanagement. He's turned out rather well in the sense that he is not a crook, that we know of, anyway. But as senatorial material, he's about as qualified as Connie Mack IV.

Did Ted Cruz benefit from an ethnic quota? Probably. But Cruz went to Princeton, then Harvard, so he's no dumber than Obama. And unlike Obama (and Michelle), Cruz was law clerk to a Supreme Court justice (Rehnquist). In contrast to Cruz, Rubio is definitely dumber than Obama. Rubio's got low cunning down pat - I'll give him that. He picks unwinnable fights on red meat issues so conservatives will forgive him for his connivance on amnesty, which will crush conservative electoral representation for decades.

Gee, Rubio is jumping up and down on the conservative hot buttons in a frantic effort to undo the damage he has caused himself on immigration.

While his votes on these issues would be appreciated, he is NEVER to be trusted as a candidate again.

I LIKE RUBIO. Except that he proved to us all that he's hispanic first. Invaders including children must return to their homelands. I thought Rubio got it as a Cuban whose family came to the US legally.

I like the guts of saying close down the government if that's what it takes to end Obamacare. I like his strong stands on the second ammendment and abortion.

But the invasion of the US?.....that's part of our constitutional conservative "bible" so to speak. Tell me....can he (1) ever understand why the issue is so important to us and (2)how does he ever convince constitutional conservatives he's no longer or will never again be a traitor?

Problem is shutting down the government over the small amount they are talking about,it is just the funds to set up some exchanges,the bulk of the money was written into the law as mandatory spending,the democrats knew the republicans would try this.Just shows how feckless the boobs in the republican party are,they blew their chances at the beginning when the mandatory spending wAs put in.
As far as I am concerned,they are all in this together,they are playing us all for suckers,the American people think they have the power,what a joke,these scum sucking politicians have the whole system rigged,it’s worse that professional wrestling.
Sure we always have a few like Ted Cruz,Rand Paul,Sarah Palin, Mike Lee to spout off,a pressure relief valve,like talk radio,vent all your frustrations,yeah we will get them next time,yeah,ok ,call Your reps and let them know,yeah,let’s March! What a freaking joke
