A few weeks ago Republicans (who run both houses of Congress, by the way) fully funded Obamacare for another year, and today House Republicans voted to repeal Obamacare in its entirety. Stated differently, recently Republicans handed Obama the money to fully implement Obamacare (and in the process further destroy healthcare in America), yet today they symbolically voted to repeal Obamacare (which they know will not survive an Obama veto).
So what the hell are these fools doing with this symbolic vote that means nothing after they’ve given Obama the money to actually do what they pretend to oppose? And please be informed that I have no problem with the vote to repeal, it’s what they should do whether or not Obama can block it, but they could have absolutely prevented Obama from implementing Obamacare if they had denied him the money to do so.
And don’t say that they could not withhold funds from Obama because that would have left them open to criticism by Democrats for shutting down the government. If Republicans had any sense and any guts, and if they really understood the difference between right and wrong, they would have shut down the damned government by withholding all funding for all of the liberal, destructive programs the budget will pay for. And also don’t suggest that Republicans just want to play nice so the independent voters will like them, and so the Hispanic voters will not think badly of them. Any block of voters that has bought the liberal lie will not vote for a Republican, and only a strong conservative stance on issues facing our nation will win the vote of independents.
Unfortunately establishment Republicans are not in that body of solid stance conservative politicians.
