Now, the House CR and the epic Ted Cruz speech were more velocity than mass, we can agree. There wasn’t a lot of hope that a Senate which goes for years without passing a budget would actually pass the House’s CR as written.
But not that matters have gone full circle, and now the House
will vote on two amendments to the Senate-passed continuing resolution that will keep the government open and stop as much of the president’s health care law as possible.
“The first amendment delays the president’s health care law by one year. And the second permanently repeals ObamaCare’s medical device tax that is sending jobs overseas.
“Both of these amendments will change the date of the Senate CR to December 15th. We will also vote on a measure that ensures our troops get paid, no matter what.
You have Harry Reid saying:
“To be absolutely clear, the Senate will reject both the one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act and the repeal of the medical device tax,’’ said Mr. Reid.
“After weeks of futile political games from Republicans, we are still at square one: Republicans must decide whether to pass the Senate’s clean CR, or force a Republican government shutdown,’’ he said in a written statement, referring to a short-term bill to fund federal agencies that cleared the Senate on Friday.
Reid, I don’t deploy the ‘L’ word terribly often, but you’re a liar. The Republicans aren’t the recalcitrant ones here. You are, you cadaverous thug.
Down the way:
The White House says President Barack Obama would veto House Republican legislation that would delay much of the president’s health care overhaul for a year and cancel a tax on medical devices.
All I can say is, when it’s time for the blame game, the Democrats own this. Speaker Boehner, this is your hour. Pay no attention to the godless Commie sodomites on the Left who want to break this country. Stand firm. Nobody who’s been paying attention to anything believe the Democrats or their river of lies. Pay no attention to the codpiece media; we know they are liars, too.
There will be no relief here. You cannot succumb to cancer. You can only fight this, if there ever is to be hope of recovery.
