Don’t “delay” it. Kill it! Delaying it for a year only gives the supporting pols cover and more time to think-up better lies to tell us. Freakin’ weasels.

I give Boehner less than 3 days after the nonsensical government "shut down" starts to fold like a cheap suit.

Any takers?

I kind of like the strategy if the HOR sticks to this. It's in Obama's court now, since he was given a choice.

The delay isn't a complete cave. One year expires October 1, 2014, just a little more than a month before the next election.

The rubes still meander along thinking "what me worry, Obamacare hasn't affected me"

OTOH, the entitlement class doesn't get their arm hooked up to the IV of yet another hit of OPM.

Torn.

Maybe a delay would give them cover or maybe it will give serious opponents time to fight back. If we could only get some fighters in the 2014 race, people who know how to battle the left’s rhetoric.

Anyway, I think it’s better than nothing.

Screw your incrementalism! We don't want it "delayed." We want it SHUT DOWN! It never should have passed in the first place, and if you think you're going to placate us with another bunch of empty promises you two-faced wimp, you're sadly mistaken.

SHUT IT DOWN!!!!!

The House is in session, currently voting on waiving House rules to let members consider certain measures today, meaning the O-care issue. Could get interesting.

The Dims are already moaning and groaning and belly-aching about secret meetings they are not party to, and then advising the Republicans they should act like adults {{{chuckle, chuckle}}}

Watching on C-Span...

If the House Republican caucus does not hold together all is lost. So I am encouraged that 100% of the attendees signaled their assent to this course of action.

However, I am not clear what the course of action is. Does it delay funding Obamacare for a year? Does it delay the individual mandate for a year? What exactly is delayed for a year and will Obama have the wherewithal to spend federal monies to propagandize against the Republicans for 12 months?

Obamacare will be unpopular no matter when it’s implemented. The question is what strategy delivers the Senate and retains the house in 2014?

“Uhh, why HELP them save THEIR law by delaying and repairing it !!??

Defunding it for a year is a RAT dream, because it gets them past the 2014 elections with out this chrome-plated turd hanging around their collective necks.
But not to worry, because the House RINOs will bitch to Boner that it will “hurt” their chances at re-election, and he will fold.

Which is why O & crew probably won't buy it. But if they do you're right, we could start the fight months earlier and let them have the election hanging over their head by the October.

Yes Ted Cruz and the conservative House reps have taped a popsicle stick to Boehner’s back as a temporary spine just long enough to stand firm on the CR.

Which means this could be the point he starts backing down from.

Watch him close folks, there's no reason to trust him.

And BTW, delay for a year is not damn near enough.

Boner made a mistake. This is certainly not what he intended but so what? Take advantage of it. Let him think himself brilliant and fully support any of his mistaken efforts to kill O-care.

No, I am sure this is NOT what Ted Cruz was talking about.

Boehner could have said what he meant, ‘come over here and let me hit you or I’m gonna let you have my lunch money and my girlfriend’.

NOT what Cruz was saying.

Strategy is: Delay for a year, until a month before the election. Conservatives will again be harangued with the old standby argument, if you don’t vote for RINO-Repub, Obamacare becomes the law! Tea Party candidate is a nice guy but he/she just can’t win! You MUST hold your nose, just this one more time, and re-elect the RINO.

It’s never about what’s conservative with this crew. It’s only about their campaigns.

Don’t “delay” it. Kill it!

The only way to get the vast majority of the Bush Tax cuts made permanent was by delaying their ending. I think that is the strategy and why the Rats are fighting so hard.

We FReepers all know that nobamacare is a disaster waiting to happen on the way to single-payer.

IMHO, the delay should be nine months. That gives plenty of time (July-November) for Americans to experience this mess before the mid-term elections. Delaying it a year only gives a month for this experience.

Here is the question

Will America get over shutting the government down for a few days/weeks?........Yes

Will America get over Obamacare if implemented?.......No.

Hold the line Mr.Boehner. Send back the same bill you first sent over and tell Reid....."This is the bill".

Yes

I may be wrong, but my understanding is when the govt shuts down military personnel will still be paid, social security checks will still go out, medicare and medicaid will still be paid so where's the pressure on the Pubs? It's the Rat base that works for the civilian wing of the govt. If I'm right as the pressure mounts on the Rats the Pubs my be able to leverage a lot of things into the final agreement.

I know the Pubs consistently disappoint us, but the Tea Party base and Sen. Cruz have changed this "crisis". The weak in the knees Pubs know they will see primary challengers if they waffle.

Delay is entrenchment. It gives them time to get their act together while the alternatives slowly die.

It is absolutely the wrong move.

Polls changed thanks to Cruz. As well as all the insurance renewal letters coming in the mail right now.

GOP Talking point will be: “Democrats shut down the government to protect Obamacare which everyone sees isn’t working as promised.”

Ted Cruz is a hero. This Obamacare crime instrument is nothing but another way to shaft the middle class. The non-productive underclass will have government support for their healthcare, paid for by our taxes, while those of us who make too much for that subsidy will have our healthcare rates rise by almost, or more than 70% in many cases, and have fewer doctors to choose from. Look at what’s happened to grocery prices—since so many out there have food stamps they aren’t concerned about price and the rest of us pay the taxes to provide the food stamps and pay for the jacked up food prices as well. Oh yeah, and when our kids go to college their tuition is up %100, and if they try to get a job during or after college the wages they make won’t even begin to pay for gas, insurance and rent, let alone health insurance. The girls are better off just having babies so they can qualify for benefits, and the boys are totally lost. Obama’s buddies, meanwhile, are becoming richer than rich with the aid of the Bond markets, benefiting from all the money being printed which will eventually devalue our money so much we’ll lose our status as the reserve currency. Obama and his class will all be on their private islands by then.

I heard some government lame brain today on FOX bemoaning the fact that the parks and museums would be closed if there was a govt. shut down. Really—who gives a sh!t! Our country is going down the drain, and our kids will be left slaves to the debt we are incurring, with no hope for lives anywhere near as good as ours have been. That’s if we aren’t invaded by the Islamists or Russians by then. We are in a dangerous position, and all these idiots can talk about is how bad it will be to shut down the Smithsonian.

I like the year delay if it’s a real delay.

My questions:
1. Are they funding any part of it through other channels?
2. Is IRS getting additional funds to implement it?
3. Are exchanges getting money to keep building?

“This would not be happening if not for the efforts of Ted Cruz.”

Ted Cruz ain’t in the House, yeah, those 19 votes in the senate and Cruz’s actions really are what have influenced all this, forget that the House defunded it in the first place.

Truth be told, this would not be happening without the efforts of John Boehner or the actions in the House of Representatives before the milk toast Senate got it.

Boehner is not always popular, I don’t care for some of his stances myself but credit where credit is due and this also goes to all of the other Representatives in the House who have steadily rejected the health care.

Truth be told, if the House acted like the Senate, Obamacare would be a done deal.
