In case you have missed the low-level energy response that Reps Steve King and Michelle Bachmann have received regarding defunding Obamacare, CNS picks up the pathetic response of Cantor. I wonder why we worked so hard to give these wimpy no-gonad Republicans a chance at leadership. Leadership? What a joke. Call you Representative today and tell them no money now or ever for Obamacare. This is our last-ditch effort and now is the time. Vote no to the latest CR.
“We have to write my language into the CR and take a stand,” King told CNSNews.com in an interview last week. “Stare the president in the eye and say: Mr. President, we are going to make sure that this government has the resources to function, but we’re also are going to make sure that there are no resources to implement or carry out the provisions of Obamacare, and if you should choose to shutdown the government in order to preserve socialized medicine that has your name on it, that is your choice not ours, but we are not going to allow that unconstitutional bill to be enacted on deceptive funding on our watch.”
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said on Monday that the new continuing resolution (CR) the House will consider this week to keep the federal government-funded will permit the Obama administration to spend money on the implementation of Obamacare.
At his Capitol Hill press briefing today, CNSNews.com asked Majority Leader Cantor: “Are you or are you not going to use this CR to cut off that $105.5 billion in Obamacare funding? Representatives Steve King and Michele Bachmann have said that they want you to do that, sent a letter saying please use the CR as an opportunity to cut off that funding. Are you going to do that?”
Cantor said: “What we’ve said earlier is that we are operating consistent with House rules, which in this CR means [limiting the bill to] discretionary funding for this year. What I’ve also said here is that we are in another temporary stop-gap mode and the intention is for this year–and going forward to next year–we intend to starve the agencies of the funding to implement the full force and effect of the Obamacare bill.”
