HOUSE GOP LEADER: DEFUNDING OBAMACARE 'NOT REALISTIC'
Breitbart ^ | Aug 24, 2013 | By Mike Flynn

Posted on 08/24/2013 10:04:25 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, number 4 in House GOP Leadership, said the effort by conservatives to defund ObamaCare is "not realistic." She advocated a piece-meal approach to repeal, delay or defund individual provisions of the sweeping health care overhaul. The debate will likely dominate discussions within the Republican caucus when Congress returns next month.

“To get the entire bill repealed, or defunded, is probably not realistic,” McMorris Rodgers said. “But I do think there are provisions in the law that we can get delayed, or provisions in the law we can get defunded.”

The government's spending authority expires on September 30th. To avoid a government shutdown, Congress must pass a continuing resolution authorizing continued spending. Many conservatives, led by Sens. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, want Republicans to strip spending for ObamaCare out of this continuing resolution.

Eighty House Republicans sent a letter to House Speaker Boehner on Thursday endorsing this plan. More moderate Republicans, however, are worried that such a move would garner a veto of the continuing resolution from Obama and lead to a government shutdown. Party leaders are concerned that they would be blamed for any shutdown.

GOP Leaders seem to be galvanizing around a plan to delay by a year the implementation of ObamaCare. “The delays the administration has been forced to implement in the healthcare law have given us a golden opportunity to talk about fairness," Boehner said Thursday, according to The Hill. "‘If big business gets relief from the president's healthcare law, families and small businesses should, too.’ This message strikes a chord with Americans. When people hear it, it resonates.”

Blamed for government shutdown? Wait until you’re blamed for destroying the entire nation!!

Better to shutdown the government than shutdown the entire economy.

The only reason it isn’t “realistic” is because of the reality of how bad “leaders” like this are.

The September CR should strip funding for Obamacare as Cruz and others advocate.

Of course Obama will hurt people and the military blaming it on the republicans but he will direct funds to Obamacare in defiance of Congress.

The poker play is to call him on it. When the social security checks are late, the military stands down for lack of funds and any number of other hurtful actions designed by Obama to blame the republicans, the response should be that Congress funded all the things he cut or delayed but he chose to direct funds to his pet project of Obamacare which the American people by a large majority do not want.

It’s not realistic to defund ObamaCare because too many House Republicans support it. Fine. Go ahead and fund it, and those GOP members who do so will lose their next primary to a real conservative.

They already HAVE destroyed this nation Jim. We're on a steady decline, set forth on that path in November, 2008 with the election of Barack "Barry Soetoro" Hussein Obama.

We're over 16 Trillion in debt, with no way to pay it off. Our economy is shrinking monthly, fewer and fewer people are in the labor force each month, fewer people are working and paying taxes - carrying the load for the rest.

? This nation is IMO already destroyed. It's on a decline path that NO ONE in the Republican Party seems to want to stop. Marco Rubio? HA!! Ted Cruz? Talks a good game - but what is he doing? Chris Christie has shown himself to be an advocate of the homosexual agenda in NJ. John Boehner is a complete joke and Mitch McConnell? He's only moving center-right out of fear of being primaried out of office.

Throw 'em all out -- every last one. I don't care if there's an R or a D next to their name, they're all crooks out for themselves, screwing you and I in the process.

That's just how I feel about every dirty last one of 'em.

You forget: John Boehner is Speaker of the House. Thus far, he's shown a complete lack of testicular fortitude (balls..) to stop ANYTHING Obama does.

The only way Obama gets stopped is by removing Boehner from the Speakership first. I FULLY ADVOCATE the removal of John Boehner from Speaker. Too bad I don't live in Ohio where I could actually DO something about it.

GOP? Gutless Old Party?

Defund it. All of it. Right Now! And, hit the media outlets to let them know why... It’s Anti-Constitutional.

Pass the CR’s without AHA funding, and name it as unfunded so there can be no mistake.

Hell, take it further and pass a BALANCED BUDGET, without AHA funding, and name it specifically as unfunded to remove all doubt.

The damn pubbies ain’t got the stones for this fight. And, they’ve proven themselves incapable of adhering to principles of conservatism and Constitutional republicanism.

We can hope. But considering all the people here on FR who demand we vote gop no matter what end say them selves that ‘we/they can’t do it’, don’t expect enough of the genpub to primary them.

Until we ‘hold our feet to the fire’ the GOP does what they will with impunity.

These “R party leaders” appear to be about as useful in representing the American citizenry as the proverbial teats on a boar. (Less useful than that, actually...)

Yes, a previous poster is totally correct. If they don’t get rid of Ocare now, they will own it.
(And it is depressing the economy at least as much, or almost as much, as O’s many anti-American or anti-business speeches)

You can't do that.

Why not? (Other than we can only vote out 1/3 of the Senate at a time....)

They're all crooks. They all belong in jail, period. If I had my way, they'd be tarred, feathered, and hung by their necks. Crooks. Dirty rotten crooks every last damn' one of 'em as far as I'm concerned.

Why do I say that? Show me a Congressman or Senator that' not a millionaire after they entered office. Sure, they may have been just like you and I when they went in, but now? Millionaires. And they did it by lining their pockets at the expense of you and I through the bills they passed into law.

Remember: this same Congress and President know the laws they're going to pass beforehand and make issue trades/make money on those laws. For you and I, that's insider trading. For them, it's all legal.

Crooks, every damn' last one of 'em and they deserve to be treated like crooks!

What an idiot!! Then when it won't work - it's the Republican's fault. Defund it and stay away from it! For every liberal voted in there are Republicans making sure they look good by their own damn stupidly. No one can be this stupid and breathe on their own - so it IS DELIBERATE.

Economic Future of United States

Not realistic under Obamacare.

Make a CHOICE, Boehner. Put the cocktail down, turn in the clubs and do the job you were hired to do or get out of the way.

That goes for all congressmen who voted to put this guy back in charge where they knew all he was going to do was act like he’s in a country club with his “friends across the aisle”.

I want a third party. I am done pretending there’s meaningful difference between the Democratic and GOP parties, and I offer the Bushes, McCain and Romney as Exhibits A, B, C and D. I think if a charismatic and principled leader such as Ted Cruz ran on a third-party ticket in 2016 he could get a 34 percent plurality victory.

There really is only one party currently, and it’s called the establishment party. Every election year the supposed two parties run around the country with their pretend differences but in the end they do whatever their establishment overlords tell them to do whether its ObamaCare or immigration reform.

Kathy McMorris-Rodgers has always been a strong voice on the conservative side of the (R) community, but this half surrender plan is liable to send her solidly into the Rubio camp of 'yesterday' names.

The actions of Obama and Senate democrats over the last few months have given the house republicans all the fuel they need to stand up against this mess of political espionage.

The bribing of key politicians to get the thing passed, the partisan vote that got it over the hump, the exemptions for Obama supporters and their companies like Sallie Jewell of REI who has been rewarded with the Interior Secretary office, union manipulations, the postponement of key elements until the next election and the multitude of lies told to the people by Obama himself are all reasons to stand up for what's right and dump this entire pile of rubbish and start over.

Kathy, you are betting on a lame horse.

Right on. There's the political elite ruling class which lives under one set of laws, then there's the rest of us who live under another.

You and I would never get away with the criminal activity that Congress and this President, Vice President, and Cabinet officials get away with on a daily basis.

But then, they live by a different set of laws (that they passed for themselves) than we do now don't they?

It's high time that changed --- one way or another. I'd prefer it happens at the ballot box but if that's taken away from us (as I fear it has been) then we may have to execute the other option in the spirit of our Founding Fathers.

I do not know what it will take to get the rest of FR to agree but we either do or the outcome is obvious.

Folks, I am as sick of saying it as many of you are of hearing me say it. Until we get our own house right here in order and on the same page, we are N E V E R going to do shxT to straighten out America.

We have an abundance of compromising idiots defending the GOP here daily and interfering with anything that may result in people coming together to either form another party, move to another current one or anything else. All we hear is cant, wont, you support Obama, youre drunk and 80 million other EXCUSES.

We have a short time to make a collective decision. Lesser evil with the GOP that gets us Obamacare and Amnesty...

Or not.

Choices must be made. Now while a sliver of a chance remains.

The (R) and (D) parties are like Coke and Pepsi. They are so similar they defy a taste test. They sell themselves as being something different, but they are each happy to hold on to their current market share and will work together to keep Dr. Pepper out of their house.

BTW: I no longer have Cable or Satellite TV, so I wouldn't have seen it on Fox.

I have over-the-air TV only. The TV comes on about 20 minutes a day -- mostly to see the local weather. Beyond that, it's off.

As far as the lamestream media is concerned - they'll be the first casualty of any revolution that starts in this country. I suspect most people are like me in that they're sick and damn' tired of being lied to every day through their television sets.

“It isn’t ‘realistic’ because someone showed her her NSA folder. Or her husbands. Or childrens...”

You may well be right, BA, but that cannot be an excuse for selling us down the river.

Rush tries to deflect criticism about amnesty (especially for Rubio) by telling us that it's the ‘big money interests’ that want amnesty badly; implying our elected officials ate not really to blame for doing the wrong thing.

My point is that this is their chosen profession and they've obligated to uphold the Constitution whether it benefits them personally or not. If they're being blackmailed, like it's always asserted that Judge Roberts was, they should step down voluntarily. ‘Man up’, as Sharon Angle would say. The stakes are too high, and the situation too dire.

Rush is a member of at least one international organization (either CRF or Trilateral) that supports the NAU. Of course he’s going to be lukewarm against amnesty.

He wins listeners and advertising dollars with continued conflict.

He’s part of the loyal opposition.
