The Republican Party “leadership” wonders why the American people doesn’t trust them. Well, things like this is why.
Speaker of the House John Boehner and his crew are more worried about funding government than fighting to stop the most evil piece of legislation ever written. Legislation that destroys the very concept of individual sovereignty, Liberty, and Freedom.
ObamaCare fundamentally changes America forever. It makes Liberty and Freedom obsolete, making American citizens little more than property of the state. It allows government to control the most minute details of one’s life, and charge you dearly for the privilege, through both higher taxes as well as higher insurance premiums. Oh, and never mind the fact the quality of health care will suffer.
CNS News reports the Republicans will indeed vote to allow funding to implement ObamaCare fully, as part of a continuing resolution. It’s a treacherous development.
The nation has been without a budget [which is required by the Constitution] since President Obama took office. The House has passed plenty of budgets, only to see the democrat controlled Senate block them. Instead of passing continuing resolutions and continually putting the American people in jeopardy, the spineless GOP “leadership” should be saying no mas!
If we can’t have a serious budget, shut the government down. Play hardball with the democrats who refuse to follow the Constitution. Call the Obama regime out!
This weak, pathetic Republican Party is why America is in such dire straits as it is. They are completely spineless. If we don’t fight ObamaCare with our dying breaths, we’ll be stuck with it forever. Once the GOP starts funding this monster it will be IMPOSSIBLE to kill it.
From CNS News:
When asked whether the House Republicans would permit or not permit funding for Obamacare in whatever legislation is enacted to fund the government after Sept. 30–when the current funding legislation runs out–House Speaker John Boehner responded that “our goal would be to make sure the government is funded,” thus indicating that House Republicans do plan to fund implementation of Obamacare past Sept. 30.
Unless a special provision is put into the bill to fund the government past Sept. 30 that expressly prohibits funding specifically for the Obamacare regulation that requires health-care plans to cover, without cost-sharing, sterilizations, artificial contraceptives and abortifacients, the House Republicans, by funding implementation of Obamacare, will also be funding implementation of that regulation.
he sterilization-contraceptives-abortifacient regulation takes effect on Aug. 1.
Boehner’s position had been echoed by Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in a press briefing on Monday.
At his press conference on Tuesday, CNSNews.com asked Boehner, “In whatever legislation funds the government after Sept. 30, will House Republicans permit funding for the Affordable Care Act?”
Boehner said, “I expect that we’ll have an agreement with the Senate on a CR [continuing resolution]. As you all know, CR’s do contain some changes but usually not many changes. And considering that we’ve been fighting–the House has voted now 33 times to defund, to repeal and change Obamacare. Actually, about seven or eight of those votes have become laws, so there have been changes.”
“But our goal would be to make sure the government is funded and any political talk of a government shutdown is put to rest,” said Boehner.
On Monday, Majority Whip McCarthy spoke with reporters. CNSNews.com asked McCarthy, “In the next CR [continuing resolution] or appropriations bill, whatever that appropriations bill might be, will you and the other House Republicans permit or not permit funding to implement the Affordable Care Act”?
McCarthy said: “We’re not at a CR yet, but I don’t see this government ever being shut down. I think you’ll find that we’ll get this job done. We have displayed many times our desire to repeal and we will continue to do so. I think when we do it you always criticize us on our votes of how many times we try to repeal it in the process.”
CNSNews.com started to follow-up with the question, “So, if it comes down to either the government shutting down or you funding, the House Republicans funding Obamacare –”
McCarthy then said, “I don’t think you’re going to find any members here who are going to shut down the government.”

The American people are overwhelmingly against ObamaCare and want this evil stopped. Boehner and his crew don’t seem to care. They are more interested in keeping this out of control Big Government chugging along than protecting the American people.
Sadly, it’s too late to primary the Speaker, this year, but Ohioans need to start looking for an actual Conservative to run against this man in 2014. He, and tose like him, must be defeated.
I would ask why Mitt Romney isn’t taking this bunch to task, but I don’t want to get laughed at.
This is a disaster dear readers, a disaster of biblical proportions. America is being destroyed right before our eyes, and the people who promised to protect the Republic, and uphold the Constitution, are actually helping the destruction along.
Liberty and Freedom, as well as individual sovereignty have been rendered meaningless by our government, and there is no one there to stand with We, the People.
