Feel that curious tickling between your shoulder blades?
Why, I do believe its a knife!
Read this and weep fellow Conservatives.
The House Leadership is at all not serious about stopping or defunding Obamacare. Or even cutting the budget.
See if you can follow their glorious logic: (bolding mine)
Speaker of the House John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy have consistently blocked efforts by Reps. Steve King and Michele Bachmann to defund the so-called “Obamacare slush fund” via the continuing resolution or House spending bills, despite being told by House Republican leadership staff that they could do so under current House rules.
“There is no way we can include their [Bachmann and King's] amendment; it would just bog us down and undercut the leadership goal of getting real cutting done through negotiations with Democrats and the White House,” says a leadership aide, sticking to talking points generated out of Cantor’s office after Tuesday’s vote in the House to extend funding for government through early April.
Bachmann and King have been pressing to zero out the $105 billion that funds the Obama Administration’s implementation of the president’s health care plan.
Despite broad support among the American public for Congress to draw back spending on Obamacare, it has done nothing to remove the $105 billion that the previous Congress had allocated. Under the terms of the funding allocation, about $5 billion is budgeted for implementation purposes in FY2011, while another $100 billion has been appropriated for FY2012 through 2020.
Wow, that is some mighty fine thinkin’ right there.
Let’s see if we can follow along:
The Republicans gained the House based on the promise that they would kill Obamacare and bring the budget under control.
If we take the House Leadership at it’s word (I know, I know), that means that the $105 Billion Obamacare Slush Fund is a completely unnecessary and wasteful expenditure.
Completely. Unnecessary. And. Wasteful.
Because the $105 Billion Obamacare Slush Fund is aimed at implementing a program that is to be defunded and dismantled. Thus, that particular bit of legislation should be eliminated along with the proposed $66 Billion in cuts for a net savings to the American taxpayer of $166 Billion.
But, the House Leadership doesn’t want to touch the completely unneccessary and wasteful $105 Billion Obamacare Slush Fund because ” it would just bog us down and undercut the leadership goal of getting real cutting done through negotiations with Democrats and the White House,”.
So, to get those “real cuts” of $66 Billion, we, the American taxpayer have to spend $105 Billion in real money toward funding a program we neither want nor need. A program, which in any case is to be defunded, dismantled, and eliminated.
That means the budget will be cut….lessee carry the one…pi times e equals…wow, Washington math is hard!!!….
Finally! That means the budget will be cut a grand total of -$44 Billion.
Or stated another way the budget will increase $44 Billion all the while funding our political enemies ability to create and implement the infrastructure of Obamacare.
Really? This is the best they can do?
What a bunch of whipped dogs…pitiful….just pitiful…
Well, call your Congress critters, please be polite but let them know in no uncertain terms that their political future depends on killing this funding now.
I don’t believe we need to go Third Party yet. Its better to take over the Republican Party infrastructure by primarying the spend-a-holics out.
If Ol’ Wet Eyes can’t lead any better than this, he needs to be sent back to the bar.
We need tough men and strong women with steel spines for the battle ahead.
Not pitiful whipped dogs peeing the carpet in fear.
And while we’re on the topic, how about a clawback for all those unspent “Stimulus” funds?
If you can’t make the argument for recovering those unspent funds that aren’t “stimulating” anything, well, you simply need to go home and let serious men and women do the job.
