According to CNS News, John Boehner introduced a giant scam in the House yesterday, designed to allow members to simultaneously vote to FULLY FUND OBAMACARE and DEFUND OBAMACARE at the same time – with one vote on one single bill! That’s right, any House member can vote YEA on this legislation and tell their constituents they voted to defund ObamaCare – with the full knowledge that the bill also fully funds the government – including ObamaCare. This bill then goes over to the Senate where they can promptly vote down the defunding language and send it on to our Syrian happy President. No other action by the House is needed and everyone can lie to you, saying they did their best to defund ObamaCare – a disastrous killer of not just Health Care, but the economy in general – that only you will have to live with.
How is this possible? How can these Representatives who have been honored by their District’s to represent them in DC tell such a big lie? Congress is not only exempted from having to live under ObamaCare – but the taxpayers also subsidize 75% of their private, full-Cadillac health insurance plans. They won’t feel the disaster of losing their doctor, their health plan, their health care – but you will and they know it.
The details are here – hat tip to the TEA PARTY PATRIOTS PETITION:
1. The House will pass a Continuing Resolution that funds Obamacare and, simultaneously, will pass a concurrent resolution that defunds Obamacare. The two bills will be ‘enrolled’ as if they were one bill — so one vote passes two bills at the same time. The Clerk of the House will send to the Senate the concurrent resolution that defunds Obamacare but includes funding for the rest of the government, and will hold the ‘clean’ continuing resolution at the desk until the Senate votes on the concurrent resolution that defunds Obamacare.
2. After passage in the House, the Senate has to have an up/down vote on the concurrent resolution with the defund language before the continuing resolution can move to the Senate. This is yet another show vote. Because there is no price to be paid for voting it down and continuing to fund Obamacare, it has no binding leverage tied to it. It is truly a vote just for appearances.
3. After the Senate has the show vote on defund, the Senate may then pass the “clean” continuing resolution, which will then go to the President for his signature without having to go back to the House of Representatives. This continuing resolution would fund the government and would have no binding impact on defunding Obamacare in any way.
The ruling elitist Republicans think that lying to you is just okay. It’s disgraceful. There is no other way out than to contact your Congressman or Congresswoman and, while being courteous, let them know you are going to fight to have them voted out of office with every bit of your soul if they allow this legislation to even be considered. It’s up to us. Start rowing.
