U.S. House taunts Democrats with anti-Obamacare spending bill
Reuters ^ | September 20, 2013 | By Richard Cowan and Thomas Ferraro

Posted on 09/20/2013 12:35:26 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

A familiar Washington melodrama - will they or won't they shut down the government - took center stage on Friday when the Republican-controlled House of Representatives passed a bill to fund the government but only if President Barack Obama's landmark healthcare law is ransacked.

Notching its 42nd vote against Obamacare and knowing full well that the Democratic Senate will reject it, Republicans in the House cast their vote, staged a noisy celebration in front of a placard declaring "SenateMustAct," and then left town for several days to give time for the Senate to demolish its work.

The communists at Reuters are having a rough week. First the Reps are slashing 40 zillion dollars from food stamps effectively starving everyone poor. That was Reuters point of view. And now Reuters is upset the Republicans are taunting the Democrats.

No taunting. Just a tiny bit of common sense. THey could and should go a whole lot further.

THe info babe on our local radio said that the rest of it is a non starter.

They all do enjoy the power of being on the inside track.

They will not give up that power easily, but they’re going to have to get used to it. any American who loves this country and takes care of it for future generations has been sick since election day. And they don’t like feeling that way and when they get a taste of the cure, theyre going to go for it.

These people in congress up to the President work FOR us.

When the senate restores funding for ocare and sends it back to the house the GOP should cut spending to the EPA and eliminate spending for ocare and send it back to the senate w/ a note to wit: HHS is next.

Perfect example of where the libtard media leans. Rooters’ “writers” worship of Buttcrack O. is hilarious to read..

Just following the crybaby's "wee-weed up" lead

"Speaking at a Ford Motor Co. plant in Missouri Friday, President Obama accused congressional Republicans of "trying to mess with me"

The rhetoric of the third-grade by the so-called "leader of the free world"!

At the very least, they have delayed funding of Obamacare and place the dispute in the public eye.
It will all be about optics now.

We must continue to fight funding this thing and explain why.

A “taunt”? The Republicans, even under weepy Boehner, have DONE their job by passing budgets...

The DemonRat party didn’t pass ANY budget when they had COMPLETE control of both houses of Congress, and the Senate didn’t pass one for nearly THREE years!!
