TOPICS: Breaking News; Constitution/Conservatism; Government; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: boehner; defund; obama; obamacare
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, confirmed Thursday that the House will not approve the Senate version of the bill, but he has declined to say how Republicans will respond. The House will likely vote over the weekend, volleying back to the Senate another stopgap bill with roughly 24 hours before a shutdown takes place.

"I do not expect (a shutdown) to happen," Boehner said. "The American people don't want the president's health care bill, and they don't want the government to shut down. Republicans are listening."

Go, Boehner, GO!! Hold the line!! Defund obamacare!!

The GOP needs to turn the Dem’s terminology on its head and start talking about a “clean” bill being one that is free of Obamacare funding, and a “dirty” bill being one that includes Obamacare funding.

Sorry, Mr. Robinson, but Boehner is firmly GOPe. This is posturing on his part at best.

Hold the line, Mr. Speaker.

I say leverage the situation even further by threatening to take Boehner's cigarettes away.

Boehner without his "deck of butts" would do anything to get them back.

In all seriousness.. just maybe the Good Lord got through to the right few.

If you missed it, Judge Andrew Napolitano was on the Special report panel tonite. He said that if Boehner puts together a coalition of "big-government Republicans and Pelosi Democrats, against the wishes of the overwhelming majority of the House GOP caucus, then Boehner is done as Speaker."

Here's the link The Judge's comments start at the 1:00 minute mark.

Boehner has a problem. There are genuinely conservative House members that are holding the leadership’s feet to the fire. Holding THEIR feet to the fire are their constituents. The net result is that Boehner does not have the votes to pass a CR that includes obamacare funding. In order to pass it, he would have to join the craven RINOS with Pelosi’s Dims. He knows that dog just won’t hunt, Jim.

Corker blamed the two Republicans for delaying a vote because "y'all have sent out releases and e-mails and you want everybody to be able to watch, and it just doesn't seem to me that that's in our nation's interest."

Is this guy an inbred?

Boehner’s plan is to let the Senate strip out the “defund” provision as they’re expected to do, and counter with a 1-year delay on everything related to the ACA, which is more likely to pass. It may actually be the superior plan anyway, as “defund” only covers items under the CR umbrella, and the individual subsidies scheduled to kick on on Jan 1 are not included in that - to me, that’s the part that must be stopped because once people start getting transfer payments, history shows that you’ll never get the program to stop.

He’s all we have right now. Apparently Boehner is facing sufficient pressure to focus his mind on this. At least for now, we need to encourage him.

Once they spend enough time in Washington, they ARE the same. They all belong to the Re-Election Party, dedicated to the enrichment of its members at taxpayer expense. They are all owned by special interests. Term limits is the only answer. Primary challenges help in the short run but the system corrupts them faster than we can remove them. The system itself must be overhauled.

If Boehner can stand tall and deliver on this rhetoric, he deserves the praise and support he receives for this act.

Just as each and every legislative act he undertakes deserves scrutiny and appropriate reaction.

Hold the line, Mr. Speaker!!! Follow the clear, unwavering direction provided by your constituents, and the rest of the United States!

Ok, I have a question, because I am totally confused on all of this. If we “defund” obamacare, do the automatic things set to start up Jan 1 still happen? Do the tax increases that we already have, stop(haha). The 1 year delay that Boehner is thinking of, isn’t that the same thing that the Dem’s wanted to do, so we are playing right in to their hands. To me, the ONLY thing to do to make this totally go away is to go straight for Repeal and accept nothing else. If we just defund it, it’s still there isn’t it? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I

The way I understand it, "defund" only covers those things that fall under the continuing resolution. It would not stop individual mandates, subsidies, or any of the taxes (though it might affect enforcement issues).

So, in this respect, the "defund" plan doesn't work. (I still support Cruz because of the politics of it -- force the 'rats to "own" Obamacare over and over and over...)

"Delay" pushes everything back a year, basically playing a stalling game until the GOP can (in theory) gain enough control to really force a showdown with the White House in the 2014 midterms. It really doesn't affect the political optics of Obamacare much because the worst of it is the uncertainty factor, which will still be hanging in the air.

"Repeal" should, of course, be the ultimate goal, but that's unlikely to happen until 2017 at the earliest, unless a landslide in the mid-terms gives the GOP enough leverage to force Obama into massive concessions.

Glad Boehner found the courage to do what's right. Good on him for finally remembering why he's there

We need to let them (the House GOP) know when they get it right, as loudly and as vehemently as we let them know when they get it wrong. And this is the RIGHT thing to do.

God bless Ted Cruz for taking his stand and shining a flood light on this. You KNOW the Old Boys club is hating him for it.

What was that saying? "I'd Rather be despised by the despicable than admired by the admirable?"

"I do not expect (a shutdown) to happen," Boehner said.

Well now. That's a darn shame. I'm all for the government "shutting down" if it will stop them from destroying out nation.

When did Americans start becoming such cowards? Seems to me most people are afraid of their own shadows. A bunch of impotent, pear-headed, loud mouthed, cowering little chihuahuas yapping forth one complaint after another as they hide in their little corner of the world unwilling to do what is necessary to make the changes we need to make to get back to the basics that made this country what it was before these liberal nutjobs got control. Small government is what this nation was founded with. As with everything else in life, when things are not working out the way they are supposed to, get back to the basics.

PERIOD!

They should just shut the whole dagnabit Leviathan monster down.

Another strategy is to only fund a few essensual things of government like the military, highways, the things that people really need to survive that why the Democrats and the Media can't say that the Republicans have shut the government down.
