By The Right Scoop


Rep. Trey Gowdy was on with Lou Dobbs last night to discuss the defunding of Obamacare and said that he doesn’t understand why Republicans are told that Obamacare is the law and therefore they must fund it when the President is constantly deciding which laws he wants to ignore.

Further, he stressed that Obamacare was passed without a single, solitary Republican vote and that we should see if Democrats can fund it without a single, solitary Republican vote.

Watch:

I find it fascinating that Republicans are criticized because they want to slow down or defund Obamacare but it’s OK if the president wants to not enforce the law. We are repeatedly told – in fact I read somewhere over the weekend ‘this is the law, a conservative supreme court validated it, so get used to it.’

Well apparently just when we’re getting used to it the president decides he’s not going to implement it. So my guess is we’re going to have a very robust debate this fall. If it’s not good  enough for prime time and clearly it is not, then why don’t we just go ahead and start over.

Lou, it passed without a single, solitary Republican vote. Let’s see if you can fund it without a single, solitary Republican vote.

(Lou then asks if he thinks it will be funded, and can Republicans actually significantly alter the law or can they repeal it in reality?)

We’ll we’re going to need the Senate to repeal it but there are lots of law – in fact you and I in another segment may discuss [how] the Attorney General doesn’t like a law. So he’s just not going to enforce it.

Well if it’s good enough for the President and the Attorney General when it comes to recess appointments or the Affordable Care Act or immigration to just ignore the law when they don’t like it, then why can’t Republicans, when you have something as wildly unpopular as the so-called Affordable Care Act which has been a train wreck as described by people who voted for it – it was passed without a single Republican vote.

And we’re expected to fund it just because it passed before many of us got to Congress?

My suspicion is we’re going to have a robust debate this fall about just how unpopular it is.

    Obamacare is based on lies, hypocrisy, and illegal activities. Here are 42 examples. http://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/08/14/obamacare-42/

  • Dukehoopsfan

    The house of representatives controls the budget.  The republicans have the majority of votes in the house.  It would be a fairly simple feat to fund the government and take away the funding for obiecare.  They could even de-fund that portion of the IRS budget which would impact the enforcement.
    They have the rules on their side and the means to kill terrible legislation yet they sit idly by and do nothing.  Have they all sold their souls?  Do they not represent the American people any longer?  (rehtorical questions, I know)  Boehner?  Boehner? … crickets.

  • deTocqueville1

    What is he really saying here? Is it that the GOP controlled house where money bills are originated constitutionally will pass legislation to defund Obamacare or that they will refrain from supporting budget  items coming from the President and Democratic Senate? It seems to me he is being cut here. What action is he proposing or in favor of to defund?

  • MiltonBassHayek

    Nice, Mr. Gowdy! Hammer that Marxist!

  • deTocqueville1

    Dukehoopsfan Precisely so why is Gowdy not saying exactly that? Or, if he is, spelling it out clearly.

  • 57thunderbird

    Isd’t Gowdy in favor of amnesty?

  • Dukehoopsfan

    deTocqueville1 Dukehoopsfan I used to think Trey was going to turn out to be a real leader but lately it seems that he has beenmorphed into the Dale Issa style of barking a little bit, getting indignant with a couple of people then fading away.  I am not sure if the republicans who are truly conservative are being threatened or bought off.
    If they are going to get anywhere they need to recall Boehner as speaker,  He is cut from the same cloth as Grahamnesty and McLame.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    BAM!  Gowdy let him have it between the baby blues!

  • waffle_anna

    All differences aside, Trey definitely has a point. If only the dummies in Congress had more cojones… if only.

  • PressWatchusa

    I love him – but I think he is swimming against the tide of idiots like Boehner and the other Rinos!
    I hope it is defunded and trashed – like Obama should be

  • Swordfish

    Tell that to Boehner

  • kong1967

    I love that quote.  They passed it without Republicans so they can fund it without Republicans.
    The bill cannot be repealed until after 2016, and that’s only if we hold on to Congress, pick up at least 5 or 6 seats in the Senate, and take back the Oval Office.  
    Having Romney as President right now would have made a huge difference.  So much for a lot of people here saying that Romney and Obama are the same and they would not go vote for Romney.  How’s that decision working for  you now?

  • nibblesyble

    Looove Gowdy, and yes I know he is weak on some immigration stuff..but I still loves him!

  • nibblesyble

    PressWatchusa Exactly!

  • Stehekin912

    I love this attitude!  But I have a question…didn’t Michele Bachmann point out that AbominationCare is self funded – that the funds for it were already written into the bill?  Hopefully that is either not a correct recollection on my part and Congress can defund it AND repeal it, or if it is correct, that money can be withheld from enough of it to cause it to wither and blow away on the wind it came in on (and repeal it – we don’t want this mummy to ever get nine Tana leaves and come back to life!)

  • Stehekin912

    Yes, we like him too…and we pray nightly that he will find his way back to the path in regard to immigration.

  • Booker

    Exactly? Why save the Dems from hanging themselves, when they provided their own rope?

  • nibblesyble

    57thunderbird It seems he is weak on some immigration stuff 57, but he is a smart dude so I am hoping he learns the error of his ways regarding that!

  • nibblesyble

    Stehekin912 Lol, I just posted something similar to 57thunderbird!

  • drphibes

    Love the Gowdy. Sorry to hear he’s “off” on immigration.

  • clevonlittle

    drphibes what exactly is he guilty of ? He questioned a witness……..Levin votes him off the island . I’ll stick with Gowdy……..

  • PressWatchusa

    nibblesyble
    Thank You both!

  • 57thunderbird

    nibblesyble 57thunderbird I like most of his stances,but the immigration thing upsets me greatly.I too hope he learns the errors of his ways.It is hard to have any confidence in anything he says now from my perspective.Trust once lost is difficult to regain.

  • 57thunderbird

    clevonlittle drphibes He is weak on amnesty,so we hold out hope that he sees the error of his ways.

  • Orangeone

    “I find it fascinating that Republicans are criticized because they want
    to slow down or defund Obamacare but it’s OK if the president wants to
    not enforce the law.”  
    This from the man leading the amnesty subcommittee for the House and giving Obama the free pass on not enforcing our immigration laws.  Mr. Gowdy, shame on you.  You should have focused on Fast and Furious, Benghazi and a Republican plan for minor health care legislation such as cross-state lines purchasing, mandatory conversion to an individual plan when a former employee completes the 18 months of COBRA payments, establishment of an insurance pool for small business owners.  
    And dare I add, Mr. Gowdy you could have drafted the articles of impeachment for at a minimum, Obama’s circumvention of the law, the Fast and Furious gun running and the Benghazi murders, being a former prosecutor and all and claiming to focus on “rule of law”.

  • Orangeone

    drphibes Exactly!

  • Orangeone

    57thunderbird clevonlittle drphibes Gowdy is leading the House subcommittee on amnesty and is setting aside the rule of law when it comes to illegal aliens and slapping legal immigrants and US born citizens in the face by holding us to the laws and rewarding the illegals.

  • Orangeone

    Stehekin912 The “funding” is the penalties that are really taxes but the employer mandate has been delayed so the businesses will not be “funding”.  That is only part of the “funding”.

  • Orangeone

    kong1967 I’m waiting for Gowdy to vote no on the Continuing Resolution.  He has voted YES every time!

  • Orangeone

    57thunderbird Yes he is.  He also voted to fund ObamaCare in the last two continuing resolutions.

  • Orangeone

    Dukehoopsfan deTocqueville1 The gov’t has been operating without a budget since O took office.  That won’t change.  They will simply redistribute funding from Defense, SS, Medicare to fund ObamaCare.  Remember, they steal Medicare funding from each and every one of our paychecks.  They’ve already robbed Medicare and the House did nothing!

  • 57thunderbird

    Orangeone 57thunderbird Thought so.Thanks for clarifying that Sis.

  • 57thunderbird

    Orangeone I’m with you Sis.

  • Orangeone

    57thunderbird Orangeone I feel a blog coming on…..

  • Orangeone

    BTW brother, when are you going to add your 57TBird avatar?

  • clevonlittle

    Orangeone 57thunderbird clevonlittle drphibes not what I’ve listened to ……if a child of an illegal is born here , can you deport the child ? The water gets murky if you answer no, it would be illegal to deport a legal citizen . Explain to me how asking questions of what would be a solution to that question is slapping anyone in the face about anything ? Fine deport the parents…….what happens to the child ?If the rule of law applies….they are citizens , I don’t get how you can legally force a citizen to expatriate ????

  • Orangeone

    57thunderbird Orangeone Re-election time coming up, he needs to distract away from his amnesty.

  • Orangeone

    clevonlittle Orangeone 57thunderbird drphibes The “Kids” act is not about children born in the US, it is about 30+ year olds who’s parents illegally brought them to the US.  They are Mexican citizens as are their parents and the law requires deportation.  If they have accepted $1 of public assistance on a visa, the law requires deportation.  
    He is spewing piecemeal amnesty with chain migration the same as the US Senate because the “faith leaders” say this is compassionate.  I say bull crap, it violates his oath of office and is the furthest thing from rule of law you can get.  His oath of office is to AMERICAN CITIZENS not illegal aliens.
    Reagan rewarded 3 million illegal aliens which displaced 1.9 million American workers.  Think what will happen when 20 million get amnesty and chain migrate 100 million.  That will displace 100% of American workers.
    If someone came illegally to the US and gave birth, there is an argument that the child can apply for citizenship at age 18.  And yes I say deport them because you cannot benefit from the fruit of an illegal act (enter our  country illegally).  Put an RFID chip in them, collect fingerprints and DNA and if they return before age 18, imprison for life.

    Tough talk… talk… talk… talk…
    He has great zingers, but from what I have seen, none of it lingers within some of his voting decisions.
    In my opinion, Gowdy is like a good tasting hotdog… without the bun and all the fixins that makes it great (such a waste).

  • bluerose3335

    Gowdy is a BLOWHARD…sorry he is no more real than Boehner or Cantor.  EWWWW he sounds so tough…well Gowdy show your GONADS on IMMIGRATION PUNK!!!  Oh that is right you become a LEFT LEANING QUICHE on that idea hey Mr. Gowdy.  I love how a PHONY like this tries to deflect his pathetic record and win points on an issue that if the GOP is SO SERIOUS PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOU FAT MOUTHS ARE and VOTE AGAINST THE CR…..or pass a CR without OBAMACARE FUNDING…then the DEMS CAN ANSWER THAT ISSUE….will they shutdown the Gov’t for Obamacare when over 60 percent of Americans are against….CALL THE BLUFF and put it on the DEMS GOWDY
    But until this two but phony changes his stance on Immigration he is nothing more than a Snake Oil pusher and sorry spare me his stand on Benghazi…he is for OPEN BORDERS and AMNESTY!

  • http://www.navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    Not, one, dime. Nothing. Give the Democrats NOTHING. Let them eat it all and let them live with the results. If the government shuts down, let it. The American people KNOW what this is about, they know how dangerous and unpopular Obamacare is, and, like sequestration, they may actually LIKE the idea of saving some money by closing down the big, bloated, and highly expensive Federal government for a while. Remember when everybody was screaming that Sequestration was going to be the end of the world? Then it came and nothing happened. Call Obama’s bluff and force him BACK to the bargaining table to start from scratch. Until then, let Obama figure out how he’s going to fund Obamacare. We want no part of something that is literally bankrupting the country.

  • SurfinCowboy

    If they play the long game and make this fight and bring the argument to the people they will win – whether or not they actually defund it. The win will be the minds of the people before the 2014 midterms. 
    If they play small ball, it will be the fault of the establishment RINOs who wish not to “stir things up” or are afraid of “losing the people like we did in 1996″ – which is cowardly (making an issue about an unpopular law is not stirring things up, it is called showing people you want to do what they want) as well as horse pucky (we all know by now that the 1996 shutdown brought gains in the Senate, a continued hold on the House, closer movement towards a balanced budget, welfare reform, etc., etc.).
    The choice is yours GOP. Grand Ole Party, or Government Opportunist Punks. Chose wisely.

  • Orangeone

    SurfinCowboy This girl is not voting for a GOPer that did not vote to defund it, period. Enough of their lies and games, no more the lesser of two evils.  Time for them to put up and shut up.

    Where does it say in the US Constitution, that the President, Congress, and the US Supreme Court can force every American citizen to purchase a govt product against their Will-ie; Obamacare/State Socialized Medicine. Nowhere, that’s where.
    Just like Prohibition, We the People will repeal this unconstitutional socialist marxist Obamacare law that was shoved down the American people’s throats against our will, regardless of what US SC Chief Justice John Roberts did, which he / they were wrong just like they were wrong with Plessy vs Ferguson. This unconstitutional law will be repealed and nullified, via US Constitutional Amendment.

  • kong1967

    Orangeone  To be honest, I’ve been against defunding the bill because I thought it wouldn’t work and it would actually kill our chances of repealing the bill.
    However, I’ve got to listen to people I really like and trust.  Levin, Hannity, and Limbaugh all say to defund the bill.  People here that I usually agree with are all saying to defund the bill.  Yet, I was siding with the establishment, but not because I like the weasels.  But, I read this article talking about an interview with Ted Cruz, who is currently my favorite man in government…..
    http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2013/07/30/ted_cruz_filibustering_the_continuing_resolution_and_shutting_down_the_government.html
    I am now on board to defund the bill.  Took a while, but I’m with you all.
    About Gowdy….I hope he jumps on board.  If we’re going to do this we can’t go in half cocked.

    It wasn’t worthless to me.  I liked to hear Gowdy critique CommieCare from an American perspective vs. the marxist point of view of the democrats.
    Similarly, it was worthwhile to hear his expose of the left’s hypocrisy, and voice his commitment to standing against this un-american law.

  • Orangeone

  • Orangeone

    RReaganRepublic Prohibition was a Constitutional Amendment that we had the power to overturn.  ObamaDeath is a law only Congress can overturn.  The Repubs want the power and control with the noose around our necks as much as the Dems do. That’s why they are tweeting “Delay” not “Defund”

  • clevonlittle

    Orangeone clevonlittle 57thunderbird drphibes anyone born in the U.S. is a citizen.  Explain please , how you deport a citizen against their will without cause ? You are proposing a bill of attainder , that is to formulate a law with retrospective consequence. I am absolutely for closing the borders today . What to do after that is accomplished is a little more complicated than what is currently being considered. Another question……….how can Levin tout Reagan nightly knowing full well that he signed an amnesty bill , yet criticize Gowdy for only , let me repeat only , questioning a witness about what to do after the border is closed ? I would call Obama a hypocrite for doing the same thing. Deporting U.S. citizens is , if any measure could be , unconstitutional. Gowdy asked questions after stating that he was for the rule of law….how can he or anyone be in favor of breaking the law ? ” KIDS ” I agree has tentacles that reach into places that I don’t feel any act should ……..but , an answer to the basic question of what do you do about underage citizens with illegally residing parents hasn’t been ( that I’ve read ) solved. I could not be for in any way for a bill of attainder .

    The US SC and it’s Justices are not the US Constitution, and they are wrong in many cases they adjudicate. 
    The actual Obamacare law was not written in language that stated the mandate was a tax. but a commerce clause penalty fine, for which US SC CJ Roberts redefined / rubber stamped it to be a tax, so he could justify it’s Constitutionality, which in fact and truth SC CJ  Roberts subverted and twisted the legitimacy of illegality of Obamacare, to illegally defy the US Constitution, for purely political purposes.

  • RReaganRepublic

    What
    does it tell you when the U.S. Congress Votes to exempt itself, and the
    Executive branch/ White House, as they did with Federal Insider Trading Laws,
    from the very unconstitutional Obamacare law it forces upon / impose on the
    entire US citizenry population- Each individual in America is forced mandated
    by this law to purchase a govt healthcare policy, or face a fine, aka tax, by
    the IRS.
    Where in
    the US Constitution does it say that the Federal govt can do all of this to the
    American citizen, and exempt themselves from the very laws it imposes upon us.
    Nowhere, that’s where. And US SC Chief Justice John Roberts knows this, but
    could care less when he redefined and rubber stamped this unconstitutional law.

  • Orangeone

    lars6291 RReaganRepublic ObamaCare originated in the Senate and ALL tax bills must originate in the House.  It’s called the origination clause.  There are court cases climbing the judicial ladder on exactly this point.

  • USMC 64-68

    RReaganRepublic lars6291  
    There was nothing legal/constitutional involved in the passing of CommieCare.
    It is a corrupt piece of legislation, passed by corrupt processes and it’s now being implemented via corruption.
    It is nothing more than the tyrannical imposition of socialism.

  • RReaganRepublic

    Orangeone “ObamaDeath is a law only Congress can overturn”
    If you have academic, actual US Constitutional Law knowledge, then you should now that this statement by you is false. The US Constitution is the Law of the Land, and no legislative or executive made law can supersede it, override it, nullify it.
    Slavery was never in the US Constitution as a Right, a Law, but was outlawed by the 13th Amendment. Thus the application of outlawing of anything Congress or the President enacts, can be invalidated via US Constitutional Amendment. That is why the Democrats hate the Liberty Amendments / the US Constitution’s article 5 clause, that enables the people and State to override them, by going around them, to remove their grip on power and authority without their approval.

    RReaganRepublicOrangeonelars6291I don’t control Chief Justice Roberts.  Roberts created law from the bench, that is unconstitutional and there court cases ongoing for exactly that point.
    For the same reasons O, his administration and most of Congress could be removed under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, IMO so could Justice Roberts.

    They both should go – along with even more.  The corruption is rampant in his entire administration e.g., DOJ, IRS, DHS, FBI, etc.

    I think in the end there will be no justice demanded of the lawless subversives of this administration and party.
    It is particularly galling when their corruption has led to an increasing body count from Fast & Furious, Benghazi – and more that we’ll never know of from their meddling in the mid-east.
    The only way I can see justice being executed is if things continue in the present direction, and there’s an uprising of patriots, and the democratic tyrants are treated as Il Duce and his partner were.
