It´s official: Republicans are done
trying to kill ObamaCare

The Week, by Jon Terbush

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 1/17/2014 6:42:39 AM

A fter vowing to kill President Obama´s eponymous health care law for going on four years now, Republicans appear to finally be moving on. To be sure, the party hasn´t dropped its opposition to ObamaCare. But a shift in the way it has framed that opposition indicates the days of "repeal or bust" are a thing of the past. Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Thursday that coming up with an ObamaCare alternative would be "one of the big issues" at the GOP´s annual policy conference this month, adding that such a proposal could come up for a vote this year. "It´s

Comments:
The Republican Establishment was never going to "kill" Obamacare in the first place. There is too much taxpayer money to be spent and doled out to potential benefactors. At best they would have made a tweak here and there, slapped a different name on it, and then drove it around town as a crowning achievement for everyone to gawk at.

In reality the Republican Establishment knows it has been exposed and no longer sees any point in pretending to fake being for less government anymore.

Your still a Republican because...?

Got Tea?

The establishment fools do not need an alternative. Congress does not have the constitutional authority to tell me what medical insurance I may or may not buy.

Fortunately, Texas has Ted Poe and Ted Cruz to protect our constitutional rights.

Worthless article tries to salvage the image of that smarmy little weasel, Boehnhead. Also, FTA: ´Simply put, ObamaCare went into effect, and it hasn´t entered the dreaded death spiral or set the Constitution on fire. In fact, it´s starting to gain strength and popularity.´ Two weeks into enactment, who actually believes this!? The death spiral is just beginning to rotate. Sometimes I think the Repubs are so inept they don´t even deserve to be in the game. As Dear Leaders dictatorship solidifies, the R party will be a vestigial organ.

Interesting. Just yesterday I returned an RNC donation solicitation, empty, with the following note: "Please remove me from your mailing list. The RNC has made it clear that Conservatives are not welcome in the party. I assume that to mean that you also don´t want Conservative money. My wallet is closed to you until the Republican Party returns to its roots."

Not to bely the criticism of Boehner, but there is an election coming up, which is easily the most direct path to repealing Obamacare.

If the GOP does not win the Senate, then you can expect Harry Reid to prevent _any_ legislation coming from the House to die on the vine. So any more government shutdowns or other more drastic moves outside of the election will simply be seized on by the press and used against the GOP.

Not on seized on, but as you saw with the miniscule NJ bridge "scandal", but seized on like it was World War III and required every drop of ink to hammer away at the GOP.

Boehner is clearly focused on winning the Senate. If you read articles on his actions and agree with this focus, then it helps to explain a lot.

Just my $0.02.

At this point, it cannot simply be "repealed". Our insurance system as it existed prior to Obamacare no longer exists. Something would have to rebuild/replace it the structure we depended on prior to Barack Obama´s grand illusion. I give the GOP in Congress credit for attempting to do that.

We can´t repeal it now, it will create too many victims. Sniff, sniff.

Once the roots are allowed to grow, all we have are victims.

With a $10,000.00 deductible, do you really have ´insurance´ ?

Why not be ´self-insured´?

Even if you had a catastrophic incident most hospitals would settle for a thousand dollar a month pay-out.

....and, just like auto repair, the "Cash" price is about half of the ´insurance´ price.

All of this "healthcare" nonsense is just a huge cash cow for the totalitarian Marxist state that complicit "Republicans" seem to be endorsing.

I just don´t understand why so many are willing to undermine the greatest country in the world and subject it to tyranny. There are damn few true American patriots in Washington...most who walk the halls are enemies.

Sometimes you just have to step aside and let the train wreck happen. Not going to be repealed anyway until conseratives have either control and 60+ senators as well as the prez or veto-proof margins in both chambers.

Ok, #12, how would you roll things back to 2009. Our health plans no longer exist. Some of our doctors have retired rather than deal with the tsunami of regulations plus the slow or never payment. It feels good to say just repeal it, or just defund it. Even if both were possible, what is still standing? If Obamacare is repealed or defunded tonight, what is the status of anyone´s insurance coverage? I´m interested in your plan. I really am. And I won´t make nasty characterizations about you, either.

No, sorry, as long as the opposition to socialist policies is deemed powerless because making tough good decisions will hurt "somebody" then we are truly sunk as a nation. The Republicans are giving this nation to the left - GIVING it to them.

Wall Street Journal, by Beth Reinhard    Original Article

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah launched an “anti-cronyism” agenda Monday with a column in the National Review urging the Republican Party to advocate populist, free-market reforms over tax loopholes, government subsidies and federal bailouts. That kind of Republican party, he writes “could not only unify and excite conservatives, but appeal to hardworking families in the purple and blue communities that President [Barack] Obama’s special-interest favoritism is leaving behind.” Mr. Lee is scheduled to continue the rollout with television appearances, town halls, a speech at the Heritage Foundation on April 30, and several pieces of legislation.

Will the real Republican Establishment please stand up? In the four years since the Supreme Court struck down fundraising regulations that effectively gave the Democratic and Republican parties a monopoly on large-scale political activity, a collection of Tea Party-affiliated organizations has arisen in Washington that competes with the GOP for campaign contributors, money and influence -- and over what legislation to push and which candidates to nominate. The groups, including the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund, have moved aggressively to kill legislation they oppose and oust incumbent Republicans they deem insufficiently conservative.

House Speaker John Boehner addressed the behind-the-scenes maneuvering by House conservatives mobilizing against his reelection as Speaker on Monday, telling Fox News host Megyn Kelly that he´s “confident” he´ll win reelection next year. “Some are suggesting you are not going to be the Speaker, even if the GOP retains control [of the House] in 2014,” Kelly told Boehner in an interview on her program The Kelly File on Monday evening. “I’ve heard those rumors before,” Boehner responded, seemingly referring to an unsuccessful coup attempt at the beginning of this Congress. “What say you?” Kelly followed up. “Listen, my members know me and they know

An Arizona conservative congressman is shining light on how President Barack Obama is using $3 million of taxpayer money to teach National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) officials how to lobby Congress. In the first of a series of efforts targeting wasteful government spending, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) wrote to House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) last week to pressure him to include language banning the Obama administration from spending money on the program. The program, highlighted by outgoing Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) in his 2013 annual “Wastebook,” operates through Georgetown University’s Government Affairs Institute. “NASA searches for intelligent life…

“To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws,” Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan said Wednesday, “it’s really a question of ‘when.’” Ryan, who was making the economic case for reforming our nation’s immigration system, was speaking at a breakfast hosted by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Ryan called the nation’s immigration laws “chief” among the problems that are curbing economic growth. Noting the rate of retirement among baby boomers, Ryan said reforming the immigration system is necessary to fill future jobs. “Please know that we understand the value of immigration,” Ryan told the crowd. “We

A group of conservative House Republicans put a Medicare “doc fix” bill in mortal peril with their objections – but then acquiesced to a plan from GOP leadership to pass it without a vote. The vote was repeatedly delayed this morning as top Republicans scrambled to find the necessary votes for the legislation. Making the problem more difficult: the bill was brought to the floor under suspension of the rules, meaning it needed a 2/3 majority rather than the normal 1/2 majority. Huddling with leadership in an ornate room off the House floor, a group of GOP lawmakers who form

When House Republicans penned their Pledge to America in 2010, they convinced American voters they would advance a conservative agenda if they regained control of the House that year. Four years later, what promises have they actually delivered? ObamaCare is still intact, our national debt has grown by $3 trillion, and Republicans have capitulated to Democrats on every issue from the debt ceiling to the budget. Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate have failed conservatives and have failed to keep their Pledge to America. Let’s examine how the GOP pledge has fallen flat.

Maine’s tea party governor, reared in poverty, is on a mission to reform the state’s welfare system. Gov. Paul LePage rolled out a four-proposal package on Monday that will get committee hearings in the legislature Tuesday afternoon. The reforms, which mostly tighten restrictions around the program, are part of an ongoing crusade against what LePage has described as a bloated program. “Big, expensive welfare programs riddled with fraud and abuse threaten our future,” he said in his state of the state speech last month. “Too many Mainers are dependent on government handouts. Government dependency has not — and never will— create prosperity.”

Statistician Nate Silver gave the GOP a 60% chance of taking back the Senate, and the Los Angeles Times noted that the Tea Party is getting ready for its next phase of promoting policies to lower the debt and mitigate or repeal Obamacare.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,

The incident happened at Cuisine of China on Geyer Springs road. In the police report, Don Francis, 74 and his wife Bettye Francis, 69, say they were attacked by Joecelyn Thornton, 33, after Francis asked her to stop cursing. In the surveillance video, a woman can be seen walking over to a table and pushing Francis.
