ObamaCare-MonopolyOnce again, it’s up to us – boots on the ground to stop this government take over of our healthcare by convincing our representatives not to fund it.  We have to be persistent, vigilant, and unrelenting in making our demands clear. As of this post we have only 63 days left! Contact everyone http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/  this is our last chance and only we can make this happen.

from: Don’t Fund It! The Countdown to Obamacare

On October 1st, millions of Americans will be required to enroll in Obamacare and could lose access to their doctors and be forced to pay higher premiums and higher taxes. But there’s still time to stop it. Republicans in Congress can stop Obamacare if they refuse to fund it.

Sign the petition and tell Congress: Don’t Fund Obamacare!

GOP Divides On Whether To Shut Down The Government Over Obamacare Funding

Obamacare’s Cost Of Control  1. It is about control of 1/6 of the economy2. It is about control of physicians  3. It is about control of your private health information   4. It is about control of your money  5. It is about control of your freedom to live your life as you choose.

    Patricia, thanks for posting this. Yes, we must fight this monstrosity. But maybe I am too optimistic, but I have a feeling this DeathCare thing is going to crash from its own weight….

    The GOP has no intention of stopping it. I might dismiss them as fools and RINOs, acting out of indifference or incompetence or treachery. Or, more generously, it’s possible that they now believe a train wreck is inevitable, and the only thing to do is stand back and highlight the leader who steered us into the wreck, instead of fighting over the controls and probably losing the fight but getting blamed for the final debacle.

    And make no mistake; if the Republicans try to stop this thing, they WILL lose the fight. That’s because Obama will simply violate the Constitution and issue an executive order for whatever he wants, just as he’s doing to suspend the employer mandate or refusing to control the border, etc. In that situation, there’s nothing to do but impeach him, which would happen in a sane world, but it’s not going to happen here, even if every Republican were on board.

    We are ruled by the same types that ruled Rome during its spiral to oblivion. Obama is a wimpy ass liar without the least bit of empathy for whitey,Jews, or anyone who opposes the Marxist agenda that he and a boatload of Dems and Repubs are currently pushing. They intend to take absolute control without one bit of representation. These rulers are egocentric psychopaths. The saving grace for us filthy masses is one day these bastards will die and face their Creator for a reckoning.

    This won’t end until we the people shove it back down their throats. Like sticking a flex hose from a cars tailpipe back into the carburetor to choke the engine to a stop (tailpipe carburetor-ism).

    Maybe the GOP thinks Obamacare will self-destruct, picking up the political pieces in future elections, the American people be damned by the consequences. I’m not entirely sure that’s their game. I believe they are dumbfounded, incapable of a political strategy, and are afraid of being called names. They are ineffective dolts.

    The Tea Party Republicans have spirit. Unfortunately spirit is not enough to carry the day now. A comprehensive winning strategy is required not more futile fights where they wind up looking like spiteful zealots. Obamacare should have been taken on with full strength and determination early on. Now it’s desperate theatrical moves here and there.

    The Tea Party Republicans in this funding issue remind me of the Black Knight in Monty Python’s Holy Grail. Full of fight in a hopeless, ill-advised contest.

      That’s a good analogy. This thing indeed needs a comprehensive strategy, rather than a series of loud, fruitless skirmishes. But political movements, in spite of their rhetoric, are more mob phenomena than forces of reason and morality. Which is why political solutions tend to do more harm than good.

      The fundamental problem is we’ve already lost the battle when people look to Washington instead of God or family or themselves. Thus the Democrat god-substitute can only be supplanted by a Republican god-substitute. Which makes the contest pointless.

    So the answer is “do nothing still, because you didn’t do it before”. I refuse to believe that this is a hopeless battle and realize that once lost, everything changes forever!

    Agree that the establishment Republicans are dumbfounded. I can’t remember who (Boehner?) but early on, some estab. Repub. came away saying that Obama didn’t want to work with us, he wanted to destroy the Republican Party. Eg, the estab. Repubs. believed that after the election, the winner would set the agenda, and then work behind closed doors toward the agenda in a manner agreeable to the continuation of both Parties. Surprise idiots! Obama has never wanted to work with anyone in a win-win manner, he wants to get what he wants in an I Win manner. What part of Chicago thug didn’t you understand?

    So establishment Republicans are dumbfounded and since they don’t think independently, are open to Republican snake oil salesman like Rove who show these wondrous graphs, tables, and charts that say; follow me to the promised land. If backed up by mucho moneybags, a mostly irrestible allure of the Sirens. So I agree with Patricia, we need to fight, fight, fight. We won’t win every battle. May lose many. But we can’t draw back in the runup to 2014.

    Hi Folks,
    I kind of wish we had a general message board on here, as I’d like to tell about my phone call with the dumb local US Representative’s office & get your takes on it. Hope it’s OK if I mention it here. My congressman is a so-called Republican but has always come across as a lazy you-know-what who does as little as possible/makes as few waves as possible, and seems to want to just hang onto this golden-goose position/power & great pay forever. I told the call-taker that I’d like to see more leadership out of him on opposing this President & his agenda, to which she acted like he’s doing all this & that. I became almost-incensed in talking to her, though, because she sympathized & agreed with all my thoughts/feelings about the willful destruction of our system of gov’t, etc from this President & his administration. However, everything I suggested she basically said there is ABSOLUTELY nothing they can do about ANY of it because they ONLY control the House. I said quit the shenanigans of voting to repeal Obamacare & instead de-fund it. I thought the House could pretty much do that on their own – that they control purse-strings, NOT the Senate, but she claims the Senate still has to approve it, and they will not. (Of course, I pointed out that they will also shoot down the repeal, so why not try a different approach & make the Senate vote against de-funding it for a change.) Also, she said something about the massive number of Executive Orders from this Prez. I replied there should be some check/balance on that, particularly if there are questions as to constitutionality of some of the orders, like what about the Supreme Court deciding anything on those? (Takes time, of course.) She mentioned Eric Holder’s recent wrangling w/Texas despite a Supreme Court ruling. I asked about removing him or having a Special/Independent Counsel investigate him; again, I get: well, the House could do so, but Senate would not go along with it. So, again, these tyrants can just do whatever they want because of the divided gov’t. She even claimed after I mentioned the prospect of impeachment (for the illegal, unconstitutional, & deliberately punitive goings-on in the Executive branch) that the House has some kind of articles of impeachment ready to go, but alas! The Senate will not approve them, so again, hamstrung. If this woman was not making things up, then, it is as I told her, we may as well just throw our hands up in the air & forget it all – there is NOTHING that can be done now, and we are all screwed! How can it not be all over if she was not lying, and these Reps & Senators can do nothing to stop this train wreck that is truly destroying more & more Americans’ lives? Was she lying on some of these things? I was very ill after speaking with her. Any thoughts?

    • Maynard says:

      The fundamental problem you’re describing is a double standard. The president is a criminal but he’s allowed to get away with it because his gang has the power to block law enforcement; meanwhile we’re hobbled by our own adherence to the rule of law, and we’re intimidated by the hostile, ugly mob that projects its own demented hatred onto us. I don’t know what to say about that, except maybe Kobayashi Maru.

  9. TigerAim says:

    Thanks Maynard – good points. I am still disgusted; wishing we had people of character in the federal gov’t, but looks like there are too few to do any good right now. :(

    Tim Carney, Wash. Examiner, has a post about how we conservatives with new media are not falling for the Republicans shiny object ploy. Specifically mentions that Republicans wanted to go along with the additional incremental gun control gun background checks, Toomey-Manchin, while celebrating that assault rifle ban was blocked. http://washingtonexaminer.com/conservative-firebrands-want-scalps-not-hollow-victories/article/2533685

    “…Republican senators went back to their districts trumpeting that they had defeated Harry Reid’s assault-weapons ban. “There was no chance that an assault weapons ban was going to pass,” Needham tells me. Defeating the assault-weapons ban was a shiny object that Republicans could hold out to distract conservatives, providing cover for mandating background checks. Conservative congressional aides, current and past, complain that this shiny-object method has been the standard operating procedure. New power dynamics disrupt this. On gun control, the Tea Partiers refused to let the shiny-object strategy work….”

    Local gov’ts are now limiting worker hours so the O-care penalty for 50 full-time employees or more won’t kick in.
