Tea Party groups push to block funding for Obamacare

Showdown over government funding for health care law signed by President Obama could occur when Congress returns from summer break.

WASHINGTON -- Tea Party groups are launching a multistate tour Tuesday aimed at garnering support to defund the national health care law signed by President Obama, ending with a Sept. 10 Capitol Hill rally as Congress returns from summer break.
The Exempt America tour kicks off in Lexington, Ky., aimed at putting pressure on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to support Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky in their effort to withhold government funds to implement the health care law critics deride as "Obamacare."

The Capitol Hill rally — featuring Lee, Cruz and Paul among others — will come just a few weeks before the Oct. 1 launch date for open enrollment under the health care law. On that date, health insurance exchanges will also begin to help people find and buy insurance coverage as the law mandates.

"If these Washington politicians think they can simply go home on summer break and claim they are doing everything they can to get rid of Obamacare, they have another thing coming," said Brent Bozell, chairman of For America, one of the seven Tea Party groups behind the tour.

The Obama administration has pressed forward with the law's implementation, noting a Supreme Court ruling last year that upheld its constitutionality.

The Exempt America tour stops Wednesday in Austin and targets John Cornyn of Texas, the GOP's No. 2 leader, and on Thursday in Jackson, Miss. to put pressure on Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss, a top appropriator. Other stops include Columbia, S.C., on Sept. 3, targeting Sen. Lindsey Graham, and in Richmond, Va., on Sept. 4, aimed at House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

The issue of funding the health care law has divided Republicans, prompting fears of a possible government shutdown.

McConnell and Cornyn are advocating a less aggressive approach than blocking government spending and do not support the efforts by the Tea Party groups and their allies in Congress. Any move to not pay for the health care law's implementation would face a battle in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

House Speaker John Boehner is also opposed to the defunding effort. Eighty Republicans — representing more than one-third of House GOP members — recently sent a letter to Boehner saying they support withholding government funds to implement the law.

Congress has until Sept. 30 to approve year-long spending bills or adopt a temporary measure that would extend government programs into the next fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1.

Before the congressional recess began in August, Lee sent Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a letter saying he and other senators will not support a resolution to fund the government or any appropriations bill if it includes money for the health care law. At least a dozen Republicans have either signed Lee's letter or publicly stated their support.

Cruz recently said that he and his Tea Party-backed allies do not have the votes to block funding for the health care law, but said a "grass-roots tsunami" would help them succeed.

Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, endorsed the anti-Obamacare movement on Tuesday.

"Forced enrollment in Obama's 'Unaffordable Care Act' is weeks away," Palin said in a statement posted by the Senate Conservatives Fund, an organization supporting candidates who buck the GOP establishment. "This beast must be stopped — by not funding it."


I bet most of those idiots don't have insurance or they are already on Medicare/Medicaid. Bunch of losers in their dress ups.PRICELESS

The Tea Party tiger has no teeth

In the GOP civil war over defunding Obamacare, the battle lines have been drawn, proverbial rifles aimed, and ultimatums issued — but what if Ted Cruz and his fellow insurgent leaders turn around to find their army has deserted?

Cruz, the Texas Republican who has led the push in the Senate to shut down the government unless the health-care law is defunded, acknowledged yesterday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he does “not have the votes right now.”(Nowhere near it, in fact, with just 13 GOP senators out of the at least 41 needed signed up.)

“It is going to take a [grass-roots] tsunami,” he told host Candy Crowley. Then he made this astonishing admission:“Now is the single best time to stop Obamacare. If it doesn’t happen now, it’s never going to happen.”

He’s absolutely right on that, of course, as once the law’s exchanges go into place on Oct. 1, it will be procedurally and legally much more complicated to undo, not to mention that the political calculus flips once people start depending on Obamacare’s benefits.

If a “tsunami” doesn’t materialize in the next month (don’t hold your breath), then the defunders will demand heads. Republicans who vote to fund Obamacare “need to be replaced,” Jim DeMint, the former senator and current president of the Heritage Foundation, told NPR last week.

Ousting allegedly squishy Republicans — or at least using primary pressure to move them to the right — has been the tea party’s bread and butter, after all, and it has been largely successful. And as Greg noted last week, defunding Obamacare has already become a litmus test in GOP primaries. But even that threat seems to be evaporating as the tea party struggles to find credible candidates to challenge incumbents, the National Journal’s Alex Roarty reports this morning:

There aren’t three Republican senators more vulnerable to a tea party challenge than Lamar Alexander, Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell – longtime incumbents with a history of deal-making and moderation that conservatives love to hate.
But conservative activists itching for primary fights are missing an essential element of victory: candidates.

In each of the three races, conservatives worry that they’ve yet to find a credible primary challenger, one capable of knocking off a better-known and better-financed incumbent. And now they fear that they’ll squander some golden opportunities in what should be a great cycle.

In Tennessee, where Republicans probably could nominate a more conservative candidate and still comfortably win a general election, Alexander’s only challenger so far is a state representative who couldn’t gain traction in an aborted bid against Scott DesJarlais, the Republican congressman who as a doctor had affairs with his patients. That leaves little hope for his Senate bid.

Kim Severson of the New York Times has more reporting today on Graham’s challenge in South Carolina, where tea party groups have taken to calling the hawkish Republican “a community organizer for the Muslim Brotherhood.” But despite their common antipathy for Graham, the 40-plus tea party and libertarian-leaning groups in the state must first hash out “a civil war of their own,” Severson reports, as they can’t decide on a common candidate.

The most promising choice is Nancy Mace, the first woman to graduate from the Citadel, but GOP strategists say the marketing executive, who has never run for office,“might not be ready for primetime.” Indeed, running against a well-funded and high-profile incumbent like Graham will be no easy task. He’s faced the tea party’s ire since its inception — it flushed him down a toilet in 2009, at least in effigy — but so far remains largely unscathed.

Which all raises the question: With few votes in Congress and the lack of a credible outside threat, has the Tea Party tiger lost its teeth in the Obamacare fight? At some point, even John Boehner and other GOP leaders know they’re going to have to level with their base on Obamacare (it will not get defunded) and the debt ceiling (it will get raised) and government appropriations (it will get funded)— so when will they be brave enough to have that hard talk? As Cruz said, we’re running out of time.


Pay attention to that last paragraph. it will NOT get defunded, it WILL get raised, and it WILL get funded. hahaha Losers

So What Exactly Does Ted Cruz Stand For? The Answer is Simple – Only Himself(GRANDrand too)

There are a lot of Republican politicians I don’t really care for, but few reach the level of absolute disdain inside of me that Texas Senator Ted Cruz does every time I see his name mentioned.

While I might not support — or like — many conservative public servants, I can at least find some level of “professional respect” for those who stand up for their beliefs.

But Ted Cruz is a snake — pure and simple. He’ll slither and coil himself around any idea or talking point he can if he thinks it will benefit his political career.

While most politicians are trained to say and do whatever it is they think might get them the most votes, Ted Cruz seems to be someone who would sell his soul for one — especially if it means he could be President.

Everything he’s done since being elected Senator seems to be a catalyst for a future presidential campaign ad. A complete sideshow of pandering to his right-wing base in hopes of landing the GOP nomination in 2016.

But he’s not the only one who’s behaved in such a manner — Rand Paul is no different. The only real difference I see between the two, as it relates to their public behavior, is that Rand Paul still tries to pander to his dad’s cult-like followers. He seems obligated to live up to his dad’s “legacy” so he tries to remain somewhat close to those lines, though he’s strayed from them.

Ted Cruz doesn’t have to do that. He just focuses on pandering to the far right-wing elements of the Republican party. And by doing so, he’s shown time and time again that he just doesn’t “get it.”
Sure, Cruz makes for a fantastic poster boy for the GOP. Well, the tea party wing, at least. He knows all the right-wing talking points, he panders to their Obama fear mongering and he quickly took up with the political movement that “Obamacare” will be the end of all human civilization.

He’s even gone as far as to say that we should “shut the government down” until “Obamacare is defunded.”

Which just sounds fantastic — if you’re a Republican voter who doesn’t have a clue how our government works. And judging by their behavior during the debt ceiling debacle of 2011, most of them don’t.

I mean let’s face it, this is the party of “Drill baby drill!”— yet they’re apparently completely unaware of how oil is traded on the global market.

Commodities futures pricing is
apparently “liberally biased” as well. Isn’t that the “go to line” for Republicans whenever reality or facts don’t support what they want to be real, but isn’t?

This is also the party of “birthers” which is doubly ironic considering Ted Cruz’s father isn’t a naturally born American (in fact, he was an illegal immigrant) and Cruz himself wasn’t born in the United States (he was born in Canada).
Oh, but it’s okay now — Cruz renounced his Canadian citizenship.




Elizabethtown, KY

#119445 Aug 27, 2013
But doesn’t that singular move show just how shallow and pathetic Ted Cruz really is? Is being an “American” that cheap of a term to him? Does he have no loyalty or pride about his past?

For a man of his age to suddenly renounce his natural-born citizenship just displays what a callous and unscrupulous human being he really is.

He should be proud of where he came from, not disowning it. And if he was so ashamed, why did he wait until now to renounce his citizenship? Sounds to me like his pollsters probably told him being a Canadian citizen would be used against him during the GOP primaries, and would impact his chances of winning the nomination.

However, it’s just extremely ironic that Ted Cruz is a potential favorite for the Republican presidential nomination coming off the years of the “birthers” attacking President Obama. Ted Cruz was born in Canada! A fact that is indisputable.
Heck, Obama had to provide birth announcements and 2 forms of his birth certificate and still many birthers claim he’s not a “real American.”

Yet I bet many of these hypocrites would vote for Cruz if he were to win the Republican nomination.
Cruz strikes me of a man who specifically ran for Senate to use his seat in Congress to run for President.

A man who wants to shutdown the government to “defund Obamacare”— something anyone who knows anything about government will tell you makes absolutely no sense. Who was born to an immigrant and himself immigrated to the United States as a child — yet opposes sensible immigration reform.
This man is the cartoon character tea party Republicans would create if Fox News developed an animated series.

He stands on stage and gives speeches that ignite the crowd. He tells them what they want to hear and gets them to stand in unison with thunderous ovations. He can travel around the country and have right-wing voters eating up his every word.
The problem is — most of it doesn’t make any damn sense.

Sure, telling a group of right-wing Republicans,“I would rather shutdown our government than see Obamacare ruin our nation” might get a huge reaction, but what good does that do when the reaction is based on ignorance and your statement has no substance?

Yes, he might gain some popularity and feed his own ego with the conservative praise he’s sure to receive as a tea party darling. Yes, he might think he has it “all figured out” as it relates to 2016 and his quest to become the next President of the United States.

But he might want to rethink his strategy, because we’ve seen this story before.

You know, a tea party darling who uses catchy phrases, panders to the far right radicals and bases their entire career off conservative talking points instead of actual facts.

Trust me, you know Sarah Palin. How’d that work out for her political career?


Love the last part about quitter palin. hahaha Dumbass teabaggers.

Why do haters hate?

It's ingrained in an individual’s personality, research suggests.

Some people seem to dislike everything.
But what makes haters hate?

It’s all part of our individual personality — or “dispositional attitude,” according to new research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

Some people may simply be more prone to focusing on positive features and others on negative features,” said co-author Justin Hepler of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

To learn whether people differ in the tendency to like or dislike things, Hepler and co-author Dolores Albarracín, the Martin Fishbein Chair of Communication at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, asked participants to report their attitudes on a variety of unrelated subjects such as architecture, politics, soccer and taxes. The responses were then averaged to calculate how much each individual tends like or dislike things in general.

The researchers found that those with generally positive dispositional attitudes are more open to follow positive actions — in other words, buy new things, recycle or drive safely.

And the haters? People who strongly hate one thing are likely to strongly hate other things as well.“You also have to consider the person,” Hepler said.


Dear Haters, I can't help but notice that AWESOME ends with me, and UGLY starts with you. haha

&#8203;Hillary Clinton For President 2016 Spawns Hype&#8203;&#8203;

Hillary Clinton hasn’t announced if she will run for president in 2016, but there’s certainly a lot of hype going on with her younger supporters. Several people are campaigning for Clinton with signs to encourage her to run.

At her latest speech, audiences listen with rapt attention as she discusses the plight of women and girls in developing countries. Even a long-expected book deal announcement generates lots of chatter. It’s not exactly what people were hoping for during her recent announcement.

Not long since Clinton stepped down as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state, the “will she or won’t she” question already is following her around, like the activists who held dark blue “Ready for Hillary” signs outside speeches at the Kennedy Center in Washington and New York’s Lincoln Center.

This past week, Clinton came off a two-month break with a soft roll-out of sorts.

She gave her first two public speeches since leaving the State Department, released details of a book scheduled for June 2014 and plans to join an advisory board of the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition.

The mere makings of a public schedule for the runner-up of the 2008 Democratic presidential race is enough to get political tongues wagging over what it all means for the 2016 campaign.

The speeches and news coverage offered an early indication of some of what awaits her as she considers whether to seek the White House again in three years: adoring supporters, young and old, former political advisers to her husband begging her to run, and potential rivals sizing her up.
Tina Brown, editor in chief of Newsweek and the Daily Beast, which sponsored the meeting where Clinton spoke Friday, captured the buzz when introducing her.

“Of course,” Brown said,“the big question now about Hillary is, what’s next?” That elicited loud cheers, but no answer from the woman beside her on the stage.

Clinton avoided presidential politics, devoting a half-hour speech at the annual Women in the World conference in New York to the status of women across the globe.

Pointing to the U.S., she said America’s position as a world leader demands that it devote full attention to empowering women to participate in the economy and society fully. She called for equal pay for women, allowing women to take advantage of family and medical leave from their jobs and encouraging women and girls to pursue careers in math and science.

GOP Already Grasping at 2016 Straws with References to Hillary Clinton’s Age

In 2008, Arizona Senator and Republican Presidential nominee John McCain, then 72 years of age, was rumored to have considered a unique offer to the American public. For the price of one victorious election, the elder statesman pondered resolving concerns about his age with a commitment to just one term in the Oval Office.

In a recent New York Times article entitled, Republicans Paint Clinton as Old News for 2016 Presidential Election, writer Jonathan Martin observed,“At a conservative conference earlier in the year, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, ridiculed the 2016 Democratic field as ‘a rerun of The Golden Girls,’ referring to Mrs. Clinton and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who is 70.” It is worth noting that the hapless Senate Minority Leader is himself 71 years of age.

According to polls conducted in early June, Hillary Clinton’s favorability rating with American voters stands at 58 percent. This is down from a December 2012 high of 70 percent, before the GOP enjoyed their weak Benghazi scandal feast.

But with Clinton currently out of political office, and the famously short term imprint of the national news cycle, experts expect those numbers to climb back steadily.

If I were a Republican strategist, I’d be worried too. A field of anemic males versus one-half of one of the most formidable couples in political history is a daunting prospect. But instead of resorting to disingenuous, hypocritical, agist barbs, why don’t you boys go out and find yourselves a platform? Expecting to gain traction with “Hillary is old! Na na na boo boo!” fully explains your present state of voter alienation.


Latter-day Republican Party patron saint Ronald Reagan was 69 years old when he was elected President in 1980, and 73 when he successfully sought a second term in 1984. President George H. W. Bush was 68 when trounced at the polls by young, upstart William J. Clinton in 1992.

Desperate repukes now showing their discrimination for age, good job. That ought to get the senior votes. hahahahaha Be very, very afraid, teabagging gop. She is coming....hahaha

A Zombie Press, Lobotomized Leaders, And A Naturalized President

~Mongrels, Mules, Barry Obama & Nuclear Bombs


Barack Obama Jr. cannot produce children with the same citizenship as Barack Obama Sr., but his children can produce children some day with the same citizenship as their father, thus passing the test of Presidential eligibility which shows that they are natural born American citizens.
Obama Jr. could have fathered Kenyan citizens if he had embraced his Kenyan citizenship after reaching adulthood and renounced his United States citizenship,-thereby choosing the opposite of what he chose, but if he had then he would have been incapable of fathering U.S. citizen children. Being a hybrid, he had to make a choice upon reaching adulthood because Kenya does not or did not bestow its permanent citizenship upon foreign-born children who do not pledge their allegiance to Kenya and Kenya alone.
Natural born citizens never have to choose between to two competing allegiances, citizenships, and nationalities because none exist. They are born of members of only one group, one tribe, one nation, with one allegiance, one citizenship, and one government.
Obama’s citizenship is a form of naturalization because it’s something mandated by human law, not something that children such as himself are endowed with by natural unalienable right.
