US House Votes To Defund ObamaCare

The US House of Representatives voted to fund all facets of government, except ObamaCare, by a vote of 230 to 189.  All Republicans and two courageous Democrats voted to Defund ObamaCare, the President's unpopular monstrosity.  This was done as a Continuing Resolution to fund the government until the end of the year, long enough for the Congress to actually vote on a budget for 2014.  Now the Bill goes over to the Senate.

Of course, Socialist Senator Dirty Harry Reid of Nevada, the Senate Majority Leader and President Obama have said the Bill is Dead On Arrival.  As a result, if there is a government shut down, it will be the Socialists in government that should be held responsible; but no doubt the left wing, lame stream media will blame Republicans.  No surprise with that.   The reality is that Republicans have funded all government programs and expenses, at current levels, except ObamaCare.  

As a compromise, since Obama has already issued many exemptions from ObamaCare for his friends and donors and delayed the Employer Mandate for a year, why not put ObamaCare off for another year altogether to prevent this train wreck from hitting the American people.  The majority of Americans hate ObamaCare.  The Congressional Budget Office just told us that ObamaCare will bankrupt our country.   Further, Republicans in the House will shortly enact common sense health care reform that really will bring down the cost of health care, not raise it as is happening with ObamaCare.  The House bill takes the good stuff out of ObamaCare and gets rid of all the job killer bad stuff.  It makes perfect sense. 

But this is all just common sense, a rare commodity among Socialists in our government.   Hurrah for House Republicans.   They stood up once again and said NO to ObamaCare.   Now the ball is in the Socialist court.  Sign the bill that funds the government, or shut it down denying benefits to their PEEP's.  It is their choice.   Republicans need to stand firm to eventually repeal ObamaCare and replace it with real health care reform.  If that happens, everyone wins, even the Socialists and their PEEP's.
