Skip to comments.Reid: Defunding Obamacare ‘dead on arrival’ in Senate
Posted on 09/24/2013 6:02:23 AM PDT by servo1969
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared the House version of the bill that funds the government and defunds Obamacare dead on arrival in the Senate, accusing Republicans of trying to hold the country ransom.
On Friday, the House passed a bill that funds the government through December 15, while defunding Obamacare. Reid moved to begin consideration of the bill when the Senate returned to session Monday afternoon, but made clear that it would be sent back to the House without that provision.
Any bill that defunds Obamas health-care plan is dead on arrival in the Senate, Reid said on the Senate floor.
Were not going to bow to tea party anarchists who deny that Obamacare is the law, he added.
The government is set to shutdown in seven days if Democrats and Republicans cannot come to an agreement and pass a bill to fund it. Reid, acknowledging that the clock is winding down, said his chamber would act as quickly as tea party Republicans will allow, a reference to Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who has said he will filibuster the bill that does not defund Obamacare.
Reid described that plan to insist on defunding Obamacare as a Thelma and Louise style plan meant to drive this economy off the cliff.
Obamacare is the law of the land, Reid said, and will remain the law of the land as long as Barack Obama is president of the United States and I am Senate Majority Leader.
New casting for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy...
Eye of Sauron = Eye of Soros
Sarumon = Harry Reid
Legolas = Ted Cruz
Arwen = Sarah Palin
Witch King of Angmar = Obama
King of Gondor = Rand Paul

Frodo, Sam, Pippin, Merry and the Hobbits = All of US
The Democrats are shutting down government. That’s the message you will never hear from ANY news source including the two-faced Roger Ailes’ employees at Fox.

“Reid is so concerned for my healthcare and he doesn’t even know me!” This is the drivel that came out of my brother in laws pie hole. There are people that actually believe this!
Just try to pay for it without the House. There’s this constitution thing that still hasn’t been completely torn up.
If you listened carefully to Harry Reid’s comments. before he caught himself he said tat “Obama, was the law of the land’.
So was the Fugitive Slave Act
LOL i don’t think you will find anything nast enough to represent Pelousy in the LOTR’s trilogy (or quadrilogy now). Maybe In the Wizard of Oz...: )

Did he say it with a beer or joint in his hand at the time. Seems to be the norm for those types...

Hey Henry, you’re the one who wants to impose socialist policies that strip away our 1st, 2nd, and 4th amendment right, side with the guys that spy on us and all of our communications and the homosexuals who want to sleep in tents with our children, supports a President who wont show his birth certificate or credentials that supports terrorists and puts them in office at the White House, imposes healthcare that may require the implantation of a biometric identification chip into our bodies that may possibly have tracking capabilities wexre not aware to recieve healthcare which we will be forced to pay for or be penalized...
AND YOU DARE CALL US THE ANARCHISTS! YOU’RE OUT OF YOUR MIND!!!
Kind of like the budget was for 4yrs. Some things never change in harry land
You will be sucking on satan harry... he has a special spot for you... in between saddam and ted kennedy.
Oh yes there is. She is the giant spider Shelob....
Dirty Harry, Obamacare is dead on arrival with me.
You and yours will never make me.
Shut it down.
In fact, shut it down, burn the building down, and salt the earth where it was so nothing so Evil could ever take root there again.
Hang these traitors.
Harry is fully willing to own this. He’s proven the corrupt mob unions in Vegas can keep him in office no matter what.
As is your revision in the House comrade.
Pray America is Waking Up
Mouth of Sauron... near the end of Return of the King at the gate of Mordor...
