House GOP Preparing to Give Up

By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | October 10th, 2013 at 04:30 AM | 56

I’m being told by several sources that Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor are plotting to give up trying to either defund or delay Obamacare.

This comes at the same time the Obama administration admits it will be months before their Obamacare website will be fixed and Kathleen Sebelius is saying if people want out of the mandate they can pay a fine.

Nonetheless, Cantor, Boehner, and with them Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are expected to cave in and fully fund, unimpeded, Obamacare.

They will work up a new deal that includes a debt ceiling increase with a few sops to the GOP as cover. The only change they are still considering it the medical device tax repeal, which is being heavily lobbied for by former Boehner and McConnell staffers who left for K Street.

A number of Democrats who are recipients of campaign cash along with these Republicans may provide a crony capitalist bridge over which this one tax repeal can pass while leaving in place all the other taxes, penalties, and fees.

But John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell, and John Cornyn will ensure that Obamacare is fully funded and give the American public no delay like businesses have.

In doing so, they will sow the seeds of a real third party movement that will fully divide the Republican Party.

the GOP is like a 15 year old boy on a date with a supermodel who is willing.....problem is, he just doesn’t know what to do or how to read her body language.

he will go home frustrated and brag to his buddies about what a big night it was and she will dump him for someone who knows what they’re doing.

that’s just how dumb the gop leadership is right now.

Based on the last several days performance, it appears that Obamacare will probably collapse under it’s own failures. Don’t know if it is still wise to keep the heat on defunding or delaying. Just sayin’.

I didn’t think Cantor had it in him to fight the Marxists, but praying Boehner does not lose his newly found backbone. Hang in there, Mr. Speaker. To succeed, you’ll end up having to fight both the Marxists and the RINO statists! But a free America is definitely worth the fight.

Hold the line!! We can do this!! Obama’s sick socialist admin is already circling the drain.

Based upon the last CR passed by the House, why are they all not repeating in unison:

“The government is shutdown because Democrats won’t accept Obamacare for their own Healthcare.”

Why muddle the message and debate blame? Make it simple enough even an Obama voter can understand it. Make the Dems defend this succinct and basic fact.

Boehner & Cantor are smart enough to realize what surrender would mean for them and the party.

Aren't they?

OK look. The Tea Party wanted the fight over the Budget, not the Debt. This measure would allow the debt date to be extended, so the fight continues over the Budget.

I would hope the extension to the Debt limit have ONE RIDER that would fully fund VA and Veterans issues not covered in the last budget deal.

It looks like the support to give in is not among the rank and file Republicans but those who were bought with a price.

It all comes down to money, or who was bought with a price in what is motivating them to give in.

We’re winning! Hurry up and retreat!

Only Republican strategists could come up with such a strategy.

Redstate has been predicting a cave since before the shut-down.

Just like the Wall Street soothsayers who are perenially predicting a market crash, sooner or later they may be right.
