OBAMA REED GOV SHUTDOWN

Smithfield, NC

#995603 Oct 4, 2013
House Republicans even started passing targeted funding bills to address particular issues, such as providing continued cancer treatments for children at the National Institutes for Health, keeping national parks open, and funding services for veterans. But Obama and Reid refused to even consider those bills as well.

When a reporter asked Harry Reid why the Senate would not pass a bill so children could continue to get their cancer treatments while the House-Senate budget battle dragged on, Reid responded,“Why would we do that?” and questioned the intelligence of the reporter. The obvious human answer was to save the lives of children. But Reid was not thinking about humanity. He was thinking about the political consequences of engineering a shutdown in further manipulation of the public against Republicans he is so certain the public will blame. In that context, his question made sense, including his disparagement of the reporter’s intelligence. Couldn’t she see the political value in denying health care to cancer stricken children, when the Republicans would be so obviously blamed for that?

But those bills were the beginning of the Republicans stumbling upon the right answer to the Democrats’ ploy. House Republicans should go back to regular order and start passing the remaining 11 or 12 appropriations bills to fund the entire government, except for Obamacare. Pass one each day, and hold a press conference to say the Republicans are ready to go to a Conference Committee with the Democrats if they disagree on the appropriations bill just passed.

But when it comes to the Treasury Department appropriations, the Republicans should just not fund the role of the rogue IRS in administering and enforcing Obamacare. When it comes to appropriations for the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), House Republicans should just not fund any payments from the Federal Employee Health Benefits program for health insurance on the Obamacare Exchanges for Congress and its staff, eliminating any special exemption for Congress from the requirements of Obamacare, because no other employer is allowed under Obamacare to help employees buy health insurance on the Exchanges. And when it comes to appropriations for HHS, House Republicans should fund the Department, except for any funds to enforce and administer the individual mandate for at least a year, matching Obama’s legally unauthorized one year delay of the employer mandate.

Then if the Democrats disagree with the provisions of these appropriations bills, they can pass their own appropriations bills with different provisions, and go to a Conference Committee with the House to compromise over final legislation. This is standard procedure for passage of bills. Check your high school civics book.

President Obama says he will not negotiate over funding the government. That is all to the good, because he has no role in this appropriations process, until both houses of Congress pass an appropriations bill for his signature.

Then if the President favors the role of the IRS in Obamacare, or a special exemption deal for Congress from Obamacare, or enforcing the individual mandate on working people but not the employer mandate on big business that is in his own Obamacare bill, he can say so in vetoing any of these bills and keeping the government shut down to that extent. But there is no point in negotiating with him in advance, because he thinks the shutdown works to his political advantage, so will not show the leadership to compromise, as Reagan did in working with Congressional Democrats so successfully.

No effort was made to indict al-Awlaki for any crimes (despite a report last October that the Obama administration was “considering” indicting him).
Despite substantial doubt among Yemen experts about whether al-Awlaki even had any operational role in Al Qaeda, no evidence (as opposed to unverified government accusations) was presented of his guilt.

silly analogy, but no surprise from Dumbass Dave from East Bumf*ck....
The "gunman in the clock tower" could be taken out more efficiently by an ordinary cop deer hunter than by SWAT and their tanks....
SWAT has snipers dumbass Galt.

So why can we kill the guy in the clock tower without due process but not a guy sitting in the desert "shooting" suicide bombers at us?

lying sack of shit. Dropped the grandkids off at school today in one of the most affluent parts of town and what do I see? Children of the lazy and worthless sitting there eating their free breakfasts, because their dirtbag parents spend their money on big TV's, drugs and expensive cars.

You are getting your fanny kicked by all who respond to you so you are reverting to profanity, it is all you have.
Yup "real dumb" Medicare is a service I may need someday. This year we, my wife and I have paid far more into Medicare than we taken out. Fortunately this year Medicare has not spent a dime our medical care.
Medicare, a program I had no choice, my employer deducts from my check every pay day for Medicare. I pay in to the farce, do you? No, you do not, you take advantage the program of choice of the moochers like you
