Ted Cruz outlines game plan: Fund government piece by piece, leave Obamacare out
When he explains something he makes it understandable to ALL levels of intellect.
He will eventually become the ONE and ONLY PRIMARY TARGET of ALL LIBERALS.
Dr, Carson: ObamaCare not for and by the people
Professor Emeritus of Neurosurgery at John Hopkins University says most Americans do not want Obamas Affordable Care Act, urges people to take a stand
Bachmann: ObamaCare will either be defunded or delayed
Cruz/Carson 2016 sounds good.
The US House of Representatives is the “Peoples’ House” and the people have said they don’t want it. I’d say the House did the work of the people.
I agree, wholeheartly!!! Go Cruz....Lee......Paul.....Rubio, etc. Thanks House Pubbies. You set the stage for next week when either Reid or Obama will blink....and they will, if McConnell tightens the noose on the Republican Senate caucus and makes them vote as a 100% caucus to Defund Obamacare.
Remember...if either Reid or Obama blink....the Obama Presidency is totally destroyed at the very moment. Pelosi is aleady done in!!! This is historic....the great, needed sea change back to USA greatness has started and is fully alive & well.
Defund Obamcare!!! (WWW.DONTFUNDOBAMACARE.COM) Sign, NOW!!!

Just saw your comment right above mine. :)
It was worth repeating!!! (snicker)
Here is the crux of the problem - you can’t remove something without a substitute to replace it.
What has happened, is that something, a good, workable health services delivery system, has been replaced with something much less workable, Obamacare. The bugs are only now becoming apparent, a vast project started with what turned out to be half-vast ideas and planning. In their haste to pass the abomination known formally as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010”, no consideration was made as to how to get from where the nation was in 2009 to where it was supposed to be in 2012.
This atrocity pretty much redefines “health insurance” as a Ponzi scheme, delivering some useful benefits to the first recipients of its provisions, but with a broadened base of demands, cannot provide anything like adequate health services to most of the rest of the participants.
Perhaps some may be familiar with the principle in physics called entropy. In any closed system, the rate of losses of useful energy as compared to the energy available will eventually degrade all forms of energy into heat, which in sufficiently high concentration, makes any further useful work impossible. This is covered by something called “The Three Laws of Thermodynamics”.
In a succinct and simple explanation, the British scientist and author C.P. Snow had an excellent way of remembering the three laws:
1.You cannot win (that is, you cannot get something for nothing, because matter and energy are conserved).
2.You cannot break even (you cannot return to the same energy state, because there is always an increase in disorder; entropy always increases).
3.You cannot get out of the game (because absolute zero is unattainable).
Hold the line! Do not fund Obamacare!!
THE BAD NEWS KEEPS COMING Reuters reports the US government on Wednesday scaled back its projections for Obamacare's impact in 2014, saying the law would generate slower healthcare spending growth and provide coverage to only half as many of America's uninsured as anticipated last year.
The biggest factor in the change stems from the U.S. Supreme Court verdict last year allowing each state to decide whether to expand the public Medicaid program for the poor under Obama's healthcare reform law. Republican leaders in nearly half of the nation's 50 states have rejected the expansion.
HHS now expects 11 million uninsured Americans to obtain coverage next year, down from about 22 million projected a year ago, according to the report, which appeared in the journal Health Affairs. (Excerpt) Read more at reuters.com ...
There's also lawsuits and state problems.
HERE'S HOW THEY'RE STOPPING OBAMACARE A West Virginia nonprofit has turned down a federal grant it received to help residents navigate new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act after it received an inquiry from Attorney General Patrick Morrisey about how it would protect consumer information. Clarksburg-based West Virginia Parent Training Inc. did not respond to a letter it received from Morrisey directing it to answer 26 questions about the group's personnel and hiring practices, including employee background checks and employee monitoring programs, the Sunday Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/17M1QVe) reported. (Excerpt) Read more at sanluisobispo.com ...
YOUR TURN--Contact your state AG---ask him/her to issue a letter of inquiry to groups receiving federal "Navigator" grants. The inquiry should center on questions WRT how the group intends to protect consumer data.
In particular, the questionnaire should ask if the tax-funded "Navigator" program intends to transfer personal/ financial/medical data of the insured to the local/county/national Democrat Party, relevant Unions, banks, investment companies, drug companies, insurance companies. Trial Lawyers' associations and whether "Navigators" have sub rosa contracts with these, and other groups, plan to profit, to provide significant info to enrich databases for pecuniary purposes.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD WILL HAVE ACCESS TO SS#, TAX, MEDICAL INFORMATION
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 8/23/2013 | William Bigelow / FR Posted by markomalley
EXCERPT Planned Parenthood is about to obtain access to your Social Security number, tax form, bank account, and medical records.
With the advent of ObamaCare, consumers buying health insurance through health care exchanges will be required to speak to navigators. Navigators are supposed to help consumers find the best coverage and ascertain whether they are eligible for a federal subsidy.
Any navigator will have access to the federal data hub, which holds information from the Department of Health and Human Services, the IRS, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Defense Department, the Office of Personnel Management, the Veterans Health Administration, and the Peace Corps.
Planned Parenthood received $655,000 from the Obama administration to hire navigators. In Iowa, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland received $214,427; in Montana, Intermountain Planned Parenthood, Inc. got $295,604; and in New Hampshire, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England raked in $145,161.
And there is not much scrutiny over who these navigators will be; HHS will not require background checks or fingerprinting, and a previous criminal conviction, even if it was for identity theft , will not trigger a rejection. To make matters worse, the administration has cut the new employees training from 30 hours to 20 and reduced screening.
OKLAHOMA WINS FIRST OCARE BATTLE: Quoting AG Pruitt--- "Obamacare was meant to be so open-ended that it could mean anything. We are seeing thousands of pages of new rules being written, both by HHS and the IRS. The open-ended interpretation of Obamacare enables this.....if the law doesn't contain a particular provision, no problem. They just make it up as they go along."
"Such is the case that involves the OK lawsuit."
The court rejected the federal governments argument that Oklahoma lacked standing to challenge the law, allowing us to proceed with this pivotal case, Were optimistic the court will recognize what states have known for months that the IRS disregarded the law by making the large employer mandate effective in Oklahoma or in any of the 33 other states without a state health care exchange.
REFERENCE Oklahoma challenged implementation of the Affordable Care Act after the IRS finalized a rule that would allow the federal government to punish large employers, including local government, with millions of dollars in tax penalties in states without state health care exchanges, which is not allowed under the health care law.
Congress provided a choice for Oklahoma and other states in implementation of the health care law, and the IRS is attempting to take that away by rule, General Pruitt said. The administration miscalculated how many states would support this law, so now theyre using the IRS to push through provisions that Congress did not pass.
PROTECT YOURSELF---Obamacare is easy pickins for identity thieves. Steps to take to minimize risk of identity theft:
1. Contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 1-800-908-4490
2. Order a tax account transcript from the IRS that verifies basic personal data along with details of your tax return filed, which may come in handy if you are checking to see whether someone else filed a fraudulent return on your behalf
The Federal Trade Commission (link at website) also lists several steps you must take if you have been a victim of identity theft.
AS FREEPER PAJAMAMAN COGENTLY POSTED: Ads need to be run---the public needs to be told of the magnitude of the invasion of their privacy, that will occur under OBamacare. They need to be made to understand this.

Cruz: ...you lose 100% of the battles that you begin by surrendering.
Amen. We need to remind the defeatists at FR of that, every day.
Very good speech and a cogent plan. I personally favor going to the mattresses and threatening to smash the debt ceiling too, but that can wait.
Cruz is right. “.....you lose 100% of the battles that you begin by surrendering.”
I like his fighting spirit.
Love it. Great video.
“I like his fighting spirit.”
Unlike a number of surrender monkey Freepers who keep bitching and posting the norm:”America is done for”, “the GOP is full of RINO’s, let’s surrender” or “it doesn’t matter, we’re doomed, the GOP will vote Dem” etc etc..
