House passes spending bill to defund Obamacare
The Washington Times ^ | September 20, 2013 | Stephen Dina

Posted on 09/20/2013 8:44:24 AM PDT by yoe

House Republicans passed their stopgap funding bill Friday to keep government open while terminating the new health care law, setting up a final showdown next week with Senate Democrats and President Obama who have firmly rejected that.

The 230-189 vote, which split almost exclusively along party lines, is the precursor to the big action next week, when the Senate is expected to strip out the health care provisions and send the bill back to the House — where Republicans will have to decide whether they can accept it at that point.

All sides are racing a Sept. 30 deadline, which is when current government funding runs out. The new measure would fund the government through Dec. 15, essentially at last year’s levels, and would leave the budget sequesters in place.

Can 0.00bama fund it through an EO, as an ‘emergency’ measure, bearing in mind that 0.00 has made so many changes to legislation through EOs, rather than Congress? (This is NOT a suggestion, merely a query by a Canuck who does not know the ins and outs of the US government, particularly funding.)

Thanks.

I’m not so sure. The AFL-CIO has thusfar been unable to roll Obama for their waivers. If they jump on this in the Senate and decide to support it, things could get REEEEEEAL interesting for the Dems.

You fight to win, but if you lose, the fact that you fought is a moral victory, so don't give up the fight... Look in the book Revelation 21:8... it characterizes the kind of people who will be cast into hell; the first mentioned is "the cowardly". It is the brave who fight a war with little chance of winning, but it is the coward who surrenders and accepts the status quo so as to go on enjoying the comforts of the ruling class. To hell with the cowardly!

The House should do this with Medicare and Social Security.

No reason why we fund those programs at all when both are generational theft

You lose each and every fight in which you do not engage.

Can you just imagine this coming Sunday's NFL line up and then reading, " this game forfeited by....... team because they are odds on favored to lose by three touchdowns?"

I'll credit them for this first step, but the real test will come next in the showdown with the Senate. That's when we'll really have to lean on them to stand their ground.

Constitutionally, the House holds all the cards on appropriation of funds. Spending bills must originate in the House, and if the House doesn't include something in the budget, the Senate's only choices are to (a) convince the House to amend the bill or (b) block the whole bill. If the two houses fail to agree on the budget or continuing funding resolution, there is no money to spend. Upholding its Constitutional prerogatives requires courage that the GOP House has yet to display, but we can't accept their cowardly excuses anymore. The GOP House doesn't think we know the rules, so it's time to make sure they know we do - and that we're watching in advance of the 2014 primaries.

Win this thing or don't come home, unless your lifeless body is carried on your shield.

230-189 is “along partisan lines?” And five RINOs abstained, so that means that 19 Dems voted to defund? Why is that not “bipartisan?”

That’s more “bipartisan” than the passage of the actual ACA bill!

So the House makes a show of being conservative today. Let's see if on September 30th they'll make another patented Boehner grand compromise. The Democrats will agree to strip the vending machine labeling provision from Obamacare in return for adding 30 million more people to the Food Stamp program. And Boehner will tell the other Republicans “it was the best deal I could get.”

Congratulations to House Members who listened to their constituents and having the backbone to stand up to the leftist media. Too bad lefties couldn’t have Obamacare and the rest of us keep our current system.

I hope everyone has gone on to Ted Cruz’s website
www.dontfundobamacare.com and signed his petition. Send it out in an email to your friends and associates. Sen. Cruz was on Fox asking for support to get a groundswell going.

Why one at a time?

Go big, get it done at once. By shooting for the stars the House will at least land in the clouds which will end up being at minimum no Obamacare, and hopefully a defunding of SSI

I read somewhere that the top union thug didn’t look happy after talks, so likely The ZERO told the AFL-CIO to wait out the funding vote - then the union will get it’s waiver.

Scheming is something the thugs do well.

It won’t go back to the house. Reid will hand pick a committee of House and Senate members and they will fund this BS. I agree this is for show only so the RepublUnots can come back to us and tell us they voted against Zero care. It’s time for a real change. Cry-baby Bohmer has to go as well as anyone who cooked up this plan.

Why only until December 15th? Do we really want to go through this every 2 months?

Or are they thinking that at some point they will actually do their job and pass the regular spending bills......

That would be funny.

If they passed the bill in the senate as-is, and Obama signed it, he could easily just keep spending the money. By the time anybody could even start the process of using the courts to stop him, December 15th would roll around, and the entire thing would be moot. No court would rule that anybody had to give any money back.

He’s a fair to good conservative vote usually and is in a mildly Republican leaning district.
Rigell’s vote wasn’t needed so ( I believe) he voted against it because he is against using continuing resolutions- instead of budgets.

Doubt if he will risk a shutdown though as he is in a military district so it all may be Kabuki.

It seems unfortunate that there does not appear to be something like a ‘vote of non-confidence’ in the US legislative system.

That said, Cameron didn’t call for a vote of ‘confidence’ when he wanted the UK to go to war in Syria and lost. THAT shoud have been a vote of ‘confidence’ in their government.

There are good and bad aspects to each type of government. There will always be politicians who ‘play’ the system to their advantage, like 0.00.

This is a bi-partisen vote. Not at all like the way obamacare was rammed through without one single republican vote. /s

I can’t watch TV concerning this. My blood pressure boils when so called “reporters” smirk when interviewing King or Cruz or Lee.

McCain and Graham say this will never pass the senate. My question to McCain and Graham is “How are you going to vote? Will you vote with the house because you KNOW it won’t pass? Or will you finally show which party you should be in?”

Can 0.00bama fund it through an EO, as an ‘emergency’ measure...

No.

EO is only internal within the executive branch. Granted, this 'Resident has pushed the envelope a bit, making executive orders that have effects outside the executive. However, spending money... so far... is not in this category. Indeed, since the lower house, the one that has elections every 2 years, closest to the people, has SOLE revenue origination power, they should do the same with AF1, white hut, and on and on.... just defund the executive. We could easily do without it for 3 years. Then, ramp back up when it has a real occupant.

You’re probably right about the union thugs. They refused to talk to reporters. As is typical, this administration is crooked as hell and only a few people seem to care. If the unions end up getting a waiver and the people accept it, then what? It’ll be one of many laws that the democrats don’t like that won’t be enforced.
