Posted on 09/20/2013 10:26:57 AM PDT by Kaslin
The House voted Friday to keep the government open through mid-December but only if Congress strips funding from ObamaCare.
The vote was 230 to 189, and largely expected.
Current funding for the government is set to expire at the end of the month, and lawmakers must approve the stopgap bill in order to keep Washington open.
The GOP measure would fund the government through Dec. 15, at current funding levels.
Today, the constitutional conservatives in the House are keeping their word to our constituents and our nation to stand true to our principles, to protect them from the most unpopular law ever passed in the history of the country- ObamaCare- that intrudes on their privacy and our most sacred right as Americans to be left alone, Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, said on the House floor.

ObeymeCare should be viewed as Unconstitutional because it enslaves one person for the benefit of another and is therefore contrary to the 13th Amendment:
— “Neither slavery nor INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE shall exist in these United States unless for crime or punishment.”
WTF didn’t Justice Roberts understand about this???
Were it not for Justice Roberts, we wouldn’t be dealing with this monstrosity today...
The SEIU Dues will stop from them for at least 3 months?????

Notice the difference?
So when the small, relentless, loud minority starts screaming, a larger, equally loud MAJORITY tells them to shut their asses!
Karl Rove is deeply saddened...
...when can we expect an actual budget?
Here’s a grand idea. How about actually create and submit a budget? Oh, you have not done that since taking office in 2009. Funny how the LSM has yet to mention that.
Culbertson’s got the right idea, but he’s being too polite. The meme should be: “at least one party listens to the overwhelming majority of Americans who don’t want Obamacare”. Two weeks from now, a large number of folks who haven’t thought much about it are going to have brought home to them exactly how bad the law is, time to make sure that they know exactly who’s responsible for it.
Alinsky variant, make ‘em live with the consequences of their own legislation.
Live within a budget—are you kidding?
That’s for the little people!
They’re the federal government ....
Justice Roberts is living proof that the Supreme Court can be bullied by a Chicago punk.
Were it not for what ever the NSA found on Justice Roberts, you mean-——
Actually ,Justice Roberts is living proof that everyone breaks one law or another every day. (RE: his adoption issues which were very likely the basis of the blackmail.)
"Were it not for what ever the NSA found on Justice Roberts, you mean-"
Roberts proved Charlie Manson was right. Sad, huh.
