Turncoat Alert! Boehner Warns Against Shutting Down Federal Government to Defund Obamacare

John BoehnerWell this should not come as a surprise to anyone who watches Speaker of the House John Boehner. The spineless RINO (Republican in name only) warns against playing poker with the Democrats over funding Obamacare and pushing us completely into a socialist state and economic collapse. He has reportedly warned rank and file Republicans, in a conference call on Thursday, against using such a threat to stop Obamacare from being implemented.

Reuters reports:

On the call, Boehner reminded Republicans of the political backlash their party suffered when the government shut down in 1995-1996, according to one person on the call.

Another participant in the call, Oklahoma Representative Tom Cole, said the speaker’s main message was that he and other leaders were still committed to killing President Barack Obama’s signature health care law but that they did not want a government shutdown.

A House Republican aide, however, emphasized that no final decision has been made on whether to pursue a strategy advocated by some in the party of denying funds for Obamacare.


Perhaps someone can enlighten us all as to how Obamacare can be defeated in the current state of affairs without defunding it. The House has passed a resolution to prevent the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing Obamacare, which is sure to be dead in the Senate. They have also voted 40 times to repeal Obamacare and where has that gotten them?

Boehner is one that seemingly doesn’t have a plan to defeat Obamacare. He is merely Barack Obama’s “yes” boy. He might, on occasion, talk a good game, but when it comes to getting something done in the right direction, he’s entirely out to lunch.

In fact, Boehner said that when Congress reconvenes on September 9 following its summer break, “Our intent is to move quickly on a short-term continuing resolution that keeps the government running and maintains current sequester spending levels.”

So Boehner’s plan is not to deal with this mess that has been going on since Boehner took the role as Speaker of the House, it’s to delay it. Then what will happen? I’m sure Boehner will tell us we’ll have to delay it again, but keep up the pretense of another vote to repeal Obamacare and give us the rhetoric, but watch his actions. His actions tell you all you need to know about whose side he is on.

Why the House put this guy back in as Speaker is anyone’s guess, but one thing is for sure, he is not a leader. He is a compromiser and a failure, one who is constantly demonstrating by his actions that he is a capitulator. I mean he has been the one, along with Republican leadership in the House that approved $982 billion in a continuing resolution to fully implement Obamacare earlier this year! Boehner caved on the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling too, and we’re already being told that the debt limit will more than likely hit its ceiling in mid-October! We still haven’t seen a budget implemented under Barack Obama, and we haven’t seen those pay cuts either that were proposed.

John Boehner has openly stated, “If I come out and say I’m for this,

and I’m for that, all I’m doing is making my job harder.” Perhaps he should have thought about that before asking people to elect him as their representative.

Frankly if the Republican leadership in the House doesn’t have the cajones to stand their rhetorical ground against funding Obamacare, then they don’t deserve to in leadership any more than the man in the Oval Office. I’m glad there are at least men like Steve Stockman who are a voice of reason in the House, willing to defund Obamacare, but will that be enough?

Here’s my final thought. Democrats were willing to put it all on the line to shove Obamacare down our throats. They even passed the legislation and had it signed into law not having a clue of all that was in it. Why won’t the Republican leadership, who were voted in following that fiasco, put it all on the line and force Obama and the Democrats to shut down the government in order to do what they “say” they believe is not only a “trainwreck,” but also unconstitutional? It’s their own political career my friends, plain and simple. Boehner and company don’t care about you and me anymore than Barack Obama and the Democrats.

    Have any of them even read the whole damn thing? They illegally exempted themselves from it so they don’t care. They only care about getting re-elected and don’t care about the American people. Last & most important, Most Americans are stupid, gullible fools with no common sense.

    • Conservative Senior says:

      Called Boehner’s office today and left a message that said IMO if he allows obamacare to be funded, he is a traitor to America and a coward. Can’t wait for the NSA to send their thugs to lock up this senior citizen.

  2. Conservative Senior says:

    Boehner and McConnell are cowards and traitors and have been kissing Obama’s butt for a long time. Question is: since they know Obama is a fraud, why are they supporting him? Leavenworth needs to build another wing to house a lot of people from congress. Gitmo needs beds for obama and all the other terrorists in our government.

    Copy from C2C:

    Hello Prezzy: Russia Sends Syria Their Most Advanced Anti-ship Missile System to Destroy the US Ships
    Before It’s News
    Is Barack Obama, in his completely insane move of attempting to start World War 3, TRYING to get America and our Navy destroyed? Russia has just sent their most advanced anti-ship missiles to Syria in a clear warning that any attack against Syria will not go unanswered.

    The New York Times quotes unnamed U.S. officials as saying the missiles could be used to counter any potential future foreign military intervention in Syria.
    The P-800 Oniks Russian П-800 Оникс; English Onyx, also known in export markets as Yakhont, English ruby or sapphire, is a Russian/Soviet supersonic anti-ship cruise missile developed by NPO Mashinostroyeniya as a ramjet version of P-80 Zubr. Its GRAU designation is 3M55. Development reportedly started in 1983, and by 2001 allowed the launch of the missile from land, sea, air and submarine. The missile has the NATO reporting codename SS-N-26. It is reportedly a replacement for the P-270 Moskit, but possibly also for the P-700 Granit. The P-800 was reportedly used as the basis for the joint Russian-Indian supersonic missile the BrahMos.

    My Verdict: If Congress (Boehner) pushes to approve strike of Syria and we loose navy people and ships, we can try Boehner for Treason also.l

    We have no dog in the Syrian dog fight other than the Crimes of Obama and Hillary and Kerry to ARM REBELS to fulfill the MB agenda here in the US. Kill the Christians, import the Muslims.

    Let us Warn Boehner and the rest of the Bastards of Washington. (Recall the Bastards of Benghazi you sorry bunch – you have not done your jobs yet.) Ergo, you now become the bastards.

    WAY TO GO, SHERIFF JOE! (Email that arrived on my desk unsolicited today)

    “Sheriff Joe and Investigator Mike Zullo has gathered evidence that Obama is a fraud and using a Social Security Card that belongs to a deceased man that lived in Connecticut which Obama has never lived. Stockman is suppose to bring this before Congress when they reconvene in Sept but got to see to believe it.”

    Readers: Watch as Boehner refuses to let Sheriff Joe and Investigator Mike Zullo present anything to Congress. This dirty bastard has sold this country down the drain.

    Watch also, Morning News: 2007 – Biden and Obama down on Bush for starting war without Congressional OK. Just Watch Boehner lead the congress to approve Obama attacking Syria against Constitutional Authority.

    Bottom Line Readers: Our own F*****ing Congress has sold all of us down the tube.

    Strong Words are for emphasis just to get you to understand the peril we are in. We have a Federal Government hell bent on colonizing the Muslim Brotherhood in our Christian nation.

    And, Obama is the criminal leader.

  5. believe says:

    Who really has any faith in believing what comes out of the WH. We have more and more Socialist and Marxist running our Government and people still believe what Boehner and Barack and this whole regime are saying.
    Stupid reigns supreme !!!
