We are down to wire. It’s the men versus the boys. It’s about who’s “got what it takes” and who is just going to “go along to get along”. This IS the “Super Bowl of Obama’s Lawlessness” and Congress. Your bet is as good as mine, but let’s pray we still have a country when Obama is done.
The political fight between congressional Republicans and the president will begin on Wednesday as Congress issues its final approval on a bill that repeals the Affordable Healthcare Act, known as ObamaCare, and strips money completely from Planned Parenthood.
Georgia Rep. Barry Loudermilk, who rode the Republican wave into office in 2012, said the bill will be sitting on President Barack Obama’s desk by the end of the week.
“Tomorrow, the House will make the final vote of the process – sending both measures to the President’s desk by the end of this week,” Loudermilk said on his Facebook page on Tuesday, Jan. 5.
He also said in his post that this move has been planned for several months, and indicated Republicans held back on fighting other issues in order to save this tactical move for these two issues.
“In the fall, we started a process that gives us one shot to bypass the senate filibuster rule, our best chance to pass conservative legislation. The two issues House Republicans chose to include in this one-time opportunity was to repeal Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood,” he posted.
Others said this will show voters that securing a GOP majority in 2012 was the right thing to do. Some hope this proves that Republicans are true to their campaign promises.
Let’s hope the Conservative Republicans win this “Super Bowl” for “We The People”. We need to get America back on track. Repealing Obamacare will stimulate the economy and return jobs to America. But if Republicans screw this up, I hope all of you get out and screw them up on their next election. Afterall, aren’t you tired of paying for abortions and the sale of baby parts? Besides, I want lower premiums and lower deductibles, and I want my doctor back!
I think Rep. Vicky Hartzler summed it up best:
“We were sent to Congress to fight for the American people,” Missouri GOP Rep. Vicky Hartzler said. “They do not want their healthcare dictated to them by Washington. And they don’t want their tax dollars going to abortion providers. …If the president didn’t hear the people’s voices earlier, hopefully, he will through this bill.”
