House vote pulled, chaos continues
Politico ^ | 10-15-13 | By JAKE SHERMAN, BURGESS EVERETT, JOHN BRESNAHAN and SEUNG MIN KIM

Posted on 10/15/2013 4:35:43 PM PDT by smokingfrog

House Republicans are in trouble.

GOP leadership pulled their bill to open the government and lift the debt ceiling because they didn’t have the votes to squeeze it through the chamber.

There will be no vote Tuesday, which means Washington will have one day to lift the debt ceiling before the U.S. government reaches its borrowing limit.

It’s unclear what Speaker John Boehner’s team will do next. This could, once again, sideline the House and kick action over to negotiations between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). The U.S. government reaches its debt limit on Thursday and the government has been shut down for more than two weeks.

The bill that was pulled because of flagging support would’ve reopened the government until Dec. 15, lifted the debt ceiling until Feb. 7, while forcing everyone from the president to Capitol Hill staffers to pay more for their health insurance.

House Republicans are in trouble.

Why? They're doing the right thing. More and more people are slowly finding out what's in obomacare, and they're freaking out. They're waking up to what the left wing freeloaders are costing them.
I'd say the Republicans have it made as long as they don't cave and screw it up.

This chaos concerning federal government funding is probably nowhere near the chaos that former Speaker Pelosi irresponsibly put the House through when she rammed Obamacare.

Boehner didn’t offer conservatives ANYTHING!
The Vitter amendment is PR nonsense- and it would create an appearance of “shared sacrifice” for the ‘elite’ if it went into effect anyway.

Only hope I can see is that Boehner is setting Mitch up to be a hero to help his reelection chances.

But who can imagine Mitch being William Wallace? ... which is what he’d have to do.

History always points to the president. History doesn't care who's in charge of the house or senate at the time. For example: who was in charge of the house and senate during the failed Carter presidency? Who was during the FDR presidency?
Oboma will be blamed for everything that goes right or wrong in the end. The buck will always stop with him. The next generation will see oboma as the one who crashed the global economy, because his own ego was more important than the people of the world.

The rinos don't understand this. All they hear is the liberal media. Thank God for the Tea Party Pubs! They get it, there are some hills worth fighting on and even dying on if necessary.

The media and Rats with all their vitriol and lies can try and make the Pubs look bad, but people are starting to find out from their friends and neighbors whats happening.

My insurance was cancelled because it doesn't fit obamacare guidelines. A plan from Blue Cross that is similar is almost double the cost.

When the 2014 elections role around the Pubs will have quotes from reid not caring about children with cancer and insisting that Congress and the President be exempted from obamacare. If this type of tyrannical arrogance doesn't disgust people nothing will.

If the debt ceiling isn’t raised (not saying I want it to) then the rats and their media can holler till doomsdays its the faults of Republicans but Obama will OWN it.

Obama will be the first DEFAULT pres. How sweet it is.

“Republicans” are in trouble??

Seems to me that Republicans, especially in the House, have been the only responsible ones in this whole debacle.

Cutting spending, trying to stop the federal takeover of health care, and working to stem government growth is a GOOD thing.

The REPUBLIC is in trouble because of the Democrat operatives and their fascist mindset.

Someone posted this earlier. It is worth repeating.

"We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, What is our policy? I will say; "It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy." You ask, What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory - victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival."

Winston Churchill - May 13, 1940 in his first address as the newly appointed Prime Minister.

(Betcha 93% of Americans couldn't tell you who was Speaker of the House during 12 of the last 17 gov't shutdowns. And I betcha Obama doesn't want to go into the history books known as the first President to lead the US into default.)
