As Long As Harry Reid Says It's Okay, I'll Fight Tooth And Nail To Repeal ObamaCare. 

Boehner_Smiling    We'd have a lot more respect for Speaker of the House John Boehner if he actually had the integrity to say those spineless and cowardly words.

      But he won't.

      Instead, full of bluster and bravado, Boehner paraded before the cameras on CBS' Meet The Press on July 1, 2012 and, once again, vowed to do whatever it takes to stop ObamaCare.

      Practically thumping his chest, he said: "It has to be ripped out by its roots." And he added: "We will not flinch from our resolve to make sure this law is repealed in its entirety."

      But he didn't just "flinch."  He turned his back. True to form... true to what we've come to expect from this weepy Republican Leader-In-Name-Only... he is trying to renege on his solemn promise.

      And since we're on the subject of things Boehner would say if he were shooting straight with the American people, let's add the following: Now hold your horses for just a minute. Holding symbolic votes on repeal to convince the rubes and yokels to vote GOP in November is one thing. Actually stopping the implementation of ObamaCare, when I have the power to do so now... well, that's another thing altogether.

      Make no mistake. Boehner's trying to go back on his word, plain and simple, and we're not about to let him get away with it.

Holding Symbolic Votes On Repeal Is One Thing.  Actually Exerting The Legitimate And Constitutionally Granted Power Of The House Is Another Thing Altogether.  

     After holding yet another purely symbolic vote on the repeal of ObamaCare, Representatives Jim Jordan and Michele Bachmann reminded Mr. Boehner that he had the ability to actually keep that promise.

      Sending Boehner a letter that has now been signed by 127 House Republicans, they asked him to take the lead and allow the House of Representatives to wield its legitimate and constitutionally granted power of the purse to "rescind all ObamaCare implementation funds."

      But when the press asked Boehner if he would be heeding the advise of the clear majority of the members of his own caucus, the bravado faded to a sniveling whimper.

      Boehner equivocated, and then, out of the blue, he said: "Our goal would be to make sure the government is funded and any political talk of a government shutdown is put to rest."

      At that point, it all became all too clear.

      What Boehner really meant to say when he pontificated on Meet The Press was: We will not flinch from our resolve to make sure this law is repealed in its entirety as long as Barack Obama and Harry Reid say it's okay.

      And we're not about to take this latest exhibition of spinelessness and cowardice lying down... not by a long shot.

      It's time to let our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only know that We The People have declared Congress a coward-free zone and that they either need to get with the program or get out of the way for those who are willing to get the job done.

Mr. Boehner: We Don't Negotiate With Terrorists, Blackmailers And Socialists.

     Are John Boehner and our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only telling us that they're backing down on their solemn vow to rip ObamaCare out by the roots because Barack Obama and Harry Reid might respond by shutting down the government?

      That's EXACTLY what Boehner is saying... so is Eric Cantor... so is Kevin McCarthy.

      When the media pinned McCarthy down and asked "if it comes down to either the government shutting down or you funding, the House Republicans funding ObamaCare...” he immediately shot back: "I don’t think you’re going to find any members here who are going to shut down the government.”

      Of course, the left-wing media and the political operatives are trying to tell you that Mr. Boehner, Mr. Cantor and Mr. McCarthy are doing the prudent thing and that the 127 members of the House, who are trying to keep their promise to the American people, are just rabid, mouth-frothing ideologues.

      Oh really? Let's think this line of reasoning through.

      If the will of the American people is to be thwarted time after time because John Boehner and our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only run like frightened children every time Barack Obama and Harry Reid raise the veiled threat of a government shutdown... THE MADNESS WILL NEVER STOP AND WE MAY AS WELL CONCEDE DEFEAT.

      In essence, all Obama has to say is: Give me the authority to spend this great nation into oblivion, or I'll shut the government down and blame it all on you. ... Give me amnesty for illegal aliens, or I'll shut the government down and blame it on you. ... Give me near dictatorial authority, or I'll shut the government down and blame it all on you. ... Give me everything I want, or I'll shut the government down and blame it all on you.

      And the tyrannical demands and the subsequent capitulations will be endless... the extortion and blackmail will never stop. Perhaps that's why the liberal media is praising Mr. Boehner.

But Something Has Got To Give.

     Yes, at some point, a REAL LEADER must draw a line in the sand. At some point, our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only will need to man-up, grow a spine, take a stand against the extortion, and there's no time like the present to make that demand.

      Enough is enough Mr. Boehner, call their bluff. Stand up and be a man. Dare Mr. Obama and Mr. Reid to shut this behemoth, out-of-control, overspending and overtaxing government down.

      Better yet, shut it down yourself and take the credit. Starve the monster. The American people are sick and tired of out-of-control spending, insurmountable debt, chronic unemployment and economic malaise.

      Has anyone stopped to think that Barack Obama is actually the last person alive who wants a government shutdown?

      Has he not shown, through his dismal and backwards policies, that he has no issue with inflicting economic hardship on the people of this country? ... But it's not the hardship that may be inflicted on some (and far fewer people than you may think) during a government shutdown that he fears.

      His true fear lies with the knowledge that the American people can not only survive a government shutdown but may well start asking: What's so bad about cutting down the size and scope of the government and forcing the government to only maintain "essential services" such as sending the Social Security checks (they won't stop during a "government shutdown" by the way), sending the mail (it won't stop), keeping the food stamps going (that won't stop either).

      Barack Obama knows that what WILL stop, for the most part, is his ability to squander our money, and he knows that when the gravy train stops, much of his ability to destroy the country, he so clearly despises, stops with it.

      He knows that a government shutdown would only constrain his ability to accumulate debt that our children will never be able to repay, and grow government so far and so fast that every freedom-loving American will reduced to effective servitude.

      So call Mr. Obama and Mr. Reid's bluff Mr. Boehner. They'll flinch.  If not, then you'll actually succeed in slaying the Leviathan and doing the American people a huge favor. Give us our country back.

      It's high time, with an election approaching, that we pose the following question to our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only: If you're not going to stand up to Barack Obama and put an end to ObamaCare and this fiscal madness NOW, then why should the American people reward Republicans with the White House and a majority in both Houses of Congress in November?

If Boehner Does Not See The Light, He Can Still Be Stopped.

     The actions that we must take as patriotic Americans are clear because Mr. Boehner and the rest of our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only have made the duplicitous actions they wish to take clear.

      They want to kick the can down the road and "make a deal" with Barack Obama and Harry Reid to fund the government under a "Continuing Resolution."

      In plain English that means Boehner is planning to allow Obama and Reid to fund the implementation of ObamaCare and continue spending your hard-earned money at the out-of-control rate that was set the last time the Pelosi-Reid Congress actually passed a budget over three years ago.

      And they're planning to capitulate to Mr. Obama in exchange for... well... err... actually... NOTHING... NADA... ZILTCH.

      But Boehner's plans to cave and unwittingly accommodate Obama's grand scheme to destroy this great country can't move forward if the 127 Republicans who urged him to "rescind all ObamaCare implementation funds" STAND THEIR GROUND.

      Boehner needs their support to pass a Continuing Resolution, and you can be sure that our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only are twisting arms and taking Republican House members to the woodshed at this very moment to force them to "play ball."

      That's why our elected officials need to hear from you right now. If rank-and-file Republicans stand their ground, Boehner and the rest of our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only will be forced to play ball with the American people.

The Time To Push The Matter Is Now.

     Yes, we must push now because our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only will tell us that they're only trying to get the White House and majorities in both Houses so they can repeal ObamaCare next year.

      They're feeding us the same line they feed us in 2010. Give us the House of Representatives NOW and we WILL repeal ObamaCare the moment we take office.

      But it didn't happen then... did it?

      As painful as it may be, each of us needs to ask a very hard question: If they have the power to stop implementation now and don't exercise that power... will they actually exercise it next year if they have a clear majority?

      Or will they simply continue to cede to then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's threats when he tells them: You might be able to pass repeal on a straight up-or-down vote, but if you do, I can make life very difficult for you in the Senate on so many other issues.

      Have they not had this power for two years now?

      Are these not some of the same Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only who were so often thwarted when they actually held the White House and clear majorities in both Houses of Congress in years past?

      Does strength of numbers, in and of itself, eradicate cowardice?

      Is the recent past not an indicator of future action?

      That's why the time for us to demand that they take a stand is now. If not now, then when? If not us, then who?

And Yes, They Have The Power Now.

     Oh yes, they have the power right now. You can take that knowledge to the bank.

      As Jordan and Bachmann and 125 other House Members wrote in their letter to Boehner:

      "In Federalist No. 58, James Madison wrote that the 'power over the purse may, in fact, be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon ... for obtaining a redress of every grievance...'”

      And the American people want that power exercised.  The American people want this grievance redressed.

      It's a tall order but we can promise you, if you hold their feet to the fire, our Republican Leaders-In-Name-Only will fly right and do as they are told.

      You've done it before and you can do it again.

      You forced them to start opposing ObamaCare in the first place over two years ago (at first, they didn't want to do it). You forced them to oppose Amnesty for illegal aliens (at first, they didn't want to do it).

      Recently, you forced the to oppose the UN Law of the Sea Treaty and you forced them to oppose the UN effort to eradicate your 2nd Amendment rights.

      And while we shouldn't have to do it, we will force Mr. Boehner, Mr. Cantor and Mr. McCarthy to get with the program.

      It's time to remind them that the American people didn't give them a mandate to hold symbolic votes on repealing ObamaCare but rather, entrusted them with the task of ACTUALLY STOPPING ObamaCare.

      127 House Members got tired of waiting for their leaders to exhibit leadership and gave them the path.

      And now, they must now chose to either lead us down that path, follow us down the path or get out of the way altogether!

      Let's help them make up their minds. Let them know in no uncertain terms, the gutless betrayals end today because We The People have declared Congress to be a coward-free zone.
