Senate Votes to Fund Obamacare
SenateConservatives.com ^ | Sept 27, 2013

Posted on 09/27/2013 4:37:13 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Earlier today, the United States Senate voted to fund Obamacare.

There were 25 Republicans who betrayed their principles and voted for cloture, giving Democrats the power to implement this terrible law.

This is a disappointing loss, but the bill now goes back to the House where Republicans must hold their ground and refuse to fund Obamacare.

Here are the 25 Senate Republicans who voted to allow Harry Reid (D-NV) and the Democrats to fund Obamacare today:

Alexander, Lamar (R-TN) Ayotte, Kelly (R-NH) Barrasso, John (R-WY) Blunt, Roy (R-MO) Boozman, John (R-AR) Burr, Richard (R-NC) Chambliss, Saxby (R-GA) Chiesa, Jeff (R-NJ) Coats, Dan (R-IN) Coburn, Tom (R-OK) Cochran, Thad (R-MS) Collins, Susan (R-ME) Corker, Bob (R-TN) Cornyn, John (R-TX) Graham, Lindsey (R-SC) Hoeven, John (R-ND) Isakson, Johnny (R-GA) Johanns, Mike (R-NE) Johnson, Ron (R-WI) Kirk, Mark (R-IL) McCain, John (R-AZ) McConnell, Mitch (R-KY) Murkowski, Lisa (R-AK) Thune, John (R-SD) Wicker, Roger (R-MS)

LEADING THE SURRENDER

There were a lot of people who worked against us in this fight, but nobody worked harder to fund Obamacare in the Senate thanMitch McConnell (R-KY), the Republican Leader.

Mitch McConnell pressured several Republicans to withdraw their names from the letter pledging to oppose Obamacare funding, he falsely accused conservatives of supporting a government shutdown, and he actively encouraged Republicans to support cloture this week so the Democrats could fund Obamacare.

If Mitch McConnell had not opposed this effort, there is no question that we would have won the vote today. He showed that he has clout in Washington. Unfortunately, he used it to hurt millions of American families.

SENATE CONSERVATIVES

We want to thank U.S. Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) for their extraordinary courage.

Most Republicans promise to stand up for conservative principles during the campaign, but then let us down after they're elected.

Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are different. They deliver.

VIDEO: Watch Ted Cruz's Epic Stand

These two men endured relentless attacks from all sides. The criticisms from the Democrats and the mainstream media were harsh, but the most personal attacks came from members of their own party.

We need more principled leaders like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz because Washington won't change without a fight.

We are extremely grateful to have them in the Senate defending liberty and we will continue to do everything we can to support them.

Most of those names don't surprise me. A couple do. Shame on them.

Be well, Jim.

Not surprising Odumbo’s dog does the master’s bidding.

Our Tea Party Chapter split calls to Toomey and Casey over the past 3 days; Toomey came thru and Casey took the phone off the hook. Natch.

You and your Family will be in my Family’s prayers, Sir, for a safe and medically-measured, successful recovery. God Bless.

I used to think Baraso from Wyoming was a solid conservative. Now I see he has spent too much time in D.C.

Transcript of Pelosi, House Democratic Leaders, and Economists’ Press Conference Following Economic Forum

Speaker Pelosi. I have time for one more question.

Q: Can you give us an update on the health care … [inaudible] … how close were …

Speaker Pelosi..."But they said in the health care bill we really have to do the job of taking down cost. We said that that was a universal message. And that is what our purpose is, is to improve quality, lower cost, expand coverage, and retain choice for those who like what they have. And in doing so, as the President has said: “Health care reform is entitlement reform and entitlement reform is essential to lowering the deficit.”

Saw your update on the other thread. Importantly your attitude approaching surgery is ideal and courage admirable.

And, by the way, the fight is a long way from over. Both of 'em.

We made a statement in the polls in 20120, about damn time for an even stronger one next year ...

I mean, seriously, 2010 should have send the message to conservatives, hell, to all non liberals, that we are not close to being as powerless to deal with this trash as we’ve been conditioned to believe.

Apologies on behalf of Arizona. FWIW, I will do my part to primary Mcain next election.

Prayers up for a speedy recovery, sir.
