Mark Levin explained tonight that Harry Reid is giving cover to the French Republicans in the Senate in order to strip out the Obamacare defunding from the CR. The thing is it makes everything backwards in the Senate.

The plan is that once Republicans and Democrats vote to allow discussion on the House Bill, which already defunds Obamacare, Reid will then propose an amendment that strips out that Obamacare defunding. The problem is the amendment cannot be filibustered, but will require only a simple majority to pass. Reid will not approve any rules that allow for filibustering amendments even though he has done it in the past.

So in order to stop Reid from stripping out the defunding mechanism, the House bill must be filibustered from the outset so that it cannot get to the amendment stage. But it will look like Republicans are filibustering the very bill they actually support and want to pass. That’s the trick that makes this process backwards.

So knowing all of that, what did McConnell do today? He said he would vote to allow discussion on the bill because he supports the bill, knowing full well the Senate will kill the Obamacare defunding with a simple majority. And Levin says other Republicans are lining up behind McConnell’s position.

He explains it below:

    When will this stop, when will these French Repubs pay? People wake up and vote these traitors out!

    • proudhispanicconservative

      I hope McConnel pays for it first he is up for reelection in 2014. Me personally would vote for a goat instead of this backbencher.

      • nibblesyble

        Yes a goat would be a blessed improvement my friend!

    • warpmine

      When we set up a guillotine on the steps of the Capital and run a few people through it, it will stop but not before.

  • MaroonRepublic

    Kentucky, you have a chance to send a message to the Rinos. We have to take back our party.

  • Rshill7

    I trust Kentuckians will notice this, and that this news will reach their ears at a deafening decibel level, and finally boot the triple-chinned squish out! These dirtbags think are going to make Cruz, Lee, and Paul look bad. Nope. They are filling out their own pink slips.

    Stupid is as stupid does, and this is what stupid does.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      From your mouth to God’s ears, you would think that after 30 years in the senate and nothing to show for it that the people of Kentucky would send someone else to Washington, but my hopes of that happening are slim, because the biggest problem is that the state republicans are as inept as the ones in Washington

  • BlueGood

    My GOD….my American friends….how the Liebrals that both yee and we deal with “CLING to petty rules of procedure” to jam THEIR agenda down our throats,,,,,,but never give a schit about answering for little tiny miniscule mishaps of (MEGA FACETIOUSNESS), DEAD AMERICANS in Benghazi….BILLIONS wasted on Climate Change and other Unicorn Fart Programs…..

    A Pox on Liebrals…..

  • Rshill7

    No one will understand, right Mitch? Wrong! You can pretend to be against Obamacare right Mitch? Wrong! The people are too stupid to get it, right Mitch, wrong, wrong wrong!

    Have your wife and aides stock up on butter and jam dude, cuz you are perma-toast!!!

    Pitch Mitch, Pitch Mitch, Pitch Mitch, right in the ditch!

    Look up the word livid you sonofa…Aaarrrrgh!

  • sjmom

    Okay Mark, so when are you going to leave the Republican party?

    • GaltLine

      All Mr Levin needs to do is name the party we will join. Then Republicans that remain will feel the real sucking sound down to their core.

      • sjmom

        I already have. Its the Constitutional Freedom Party. Check us out at cf4us.org. We’re on Facebook and Twitter and we’ve invited Mark to join us.

        • GaltLine

          How many states is the Constitutional Freedom Party already established in? If it’s only in a couple states you will never be ready for the 2014 midterms. Your link didn’t work for me.

          • sjmom

            I’ll get someone more computer literate to respond to you. I probably did it wrong. My apologies.

            • GaltLine

              Found the website. Couldn’t find a list of states where they can place candidates names on the ballot. The replacement party of choice needs to be already nationwide, or very close to it.

                We’re too new and haven’t been able to get registered yet, but we’re vetting new candidates hard and endorsing those who are Constitutional Conservatives. Please check our endorsement list, we’ll be adding more as we get the names, and vet. http://constfreparty.blogspot.com/2013/09/endorsements.html

                McConnell has to go, people need to support Matt Bevin

                Graham has to go, people need to support Lee Bright

                Democrats like Senator Landrieu need to go, people need to support Rob Maness.

                We need someone to run against McLame, so far no one’s thrown their hat in.

                • Patriot077

                  I thought McLame was re-elected for 6 years in 2010.

                • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanDuckie

                  He may be, I’ll have to check, but it’s moot right now anyway because no one’s talking about running against him whenever that time is.

  • Jason Budd

    Every day, I read about some Republican stabbing us in the back. Time to move on I guess from the GOP.

    I think Sarah Palin called them CANNIBALS

    Mark just mentioned during a break that “talk-radio hosts” were just mentioned in Tokyo Rove’s latest TV appearance “critiquing Ted Cruz.”

  • disqus_BglexnIiXv

    Email complete. You know using the words Legislative Coward felt very nice!

  • disqus_BglexnIiXv

    Hummmmmm? How do I contact Rove. I think I will tell him that he is one of the several reasons I no longer contribute to the Repubican party. Come on folks you got the time to post here? You got the time to voice to the talking heads. Just keep it polite yet direct.

    When are Levin and Palin going to just change parties? Isn’t this unethical? I wouldn’t want to be associated with it, myself. Couldn’t they be just as effective (or more) as Republican-leaning independents?

      Why should we leave the Republican party?

          Galt. The problem is that its our house/home. Throw out the squatters and retake our place within it!

          • GaltLine

            How do you throw out the Karl Rove’s? They can’t be voted out.

            • Josh Marihugh

              You throw out the Roves by voting in fresh blood, people who will listen to US and not the talking heads of the party…

              • GaltLine

                I don’t think so. They’re entitled. Karl Rove, Bill Cristol, David Brooks, Peggy Noonan, Ed Rollins, Charles Krauthammer, Brit Hume, et al. There is no way you will be rid of them. Never.

            • proverbs2611

              Exactly. If that guy can still have his job after his failed predictions during the last presidential election, he’ll never leave.

  • John_Frank

    This is why it is important that people take action as per Sarah Palin’s post of earlier this evening:
    https://www.facebook.com/sarahpalin/posts/10151887197328588

    “The U.S. Senate has some arcane procedural rules, and as ordinary
    Americans our eyes glaze over trying to decipher them. But it’s
    important for us to understand that Sen. Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund
    Obamacare are worthwhile and doable.

    We shouldn’t preemptively
    surrender the fight to those who rammed through this outrageously
    burdensome and unaffordable ploy for government control of health care
    even though some are trying to convince us that the fight is futile.
    Just because a fight isn’t easy, doesn’t mean it’s not worth fighting.

    This defund movement boils down to a very simple request. As Andrew
    McCarthy recently pointed out: “Obama himself has already unilaterally
    and unconstitutionally defunded aspects of Obamacare, including
    repugnant accommodations for big corporations, Obama insiders, and
    members of Congress.” All we’re asking is that the rest of America “get
    the same relief from this awful law that Obama cronies, the ruling
    class, and the politically-connected get.”

    Please call your
    senators and politely ask them to stand with Senator Cruz. This is
    especially important if your senator is a Democrat up for re-election in
    a red state in 2014. That would be Senators Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark
    Pryor (D-AR), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), and Kay Hagan (D-NC). Remind them
    politely that we are watching their votes very carefully and even a
    procedural vote that shuts down this debate will be regarded as a vote
    for Obamacare, and there will be consequences for them at the ballot box
    next year. The same goes for Republicans up for re-election. We
    definitely expect them to stand shoulder to shoulder with Senator Cruz
    through thick and thin.

    The number for the Capitol Hill
    Switchboard is 202-224-3121. Ask for your senator’s office. You can also
    find their contact information and contact them online at
    http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

    Remember, we elected these senators precisely for moments like this. If
    they can’t do anything with the power we’ve given them through their
    elected office, then perhaps it’s time for them to retire and let
    someone else have a go.

    Opposition to Obamacare carried us to victory in 2010. And 2014 is just around the corner.

    – Sarah Palin”

    We need wave after wave after wave of people calling the Republican Senators and Red State Democratic Senators …

    • Subie201

      Americans SHOULD abandon this RINO party, however, wouldn’t it be better to get rid of ALL those old rusted out dummies like McConnell, McCain and vote in new, young blood? Why should we freedom loving spirits go shopping for a new party…get rid of the asses helping to further tyranny in this party and we might just have a real Conservative party WE can be proud of!

      • disqus_BglexnIiXv

        Absolutely. Fix up our house/clean it up. That is a better use of energy than searching for a new home where no one knows where you live.

        • Subie201

          Yup, and the morons in this country would refer to it as the Teaparty Party calling us anarchists!

      • GaltLine

        What about the baggage? The Ed Rollins’s, Karl Rove’s, the professional class of so called Republican and Conservative experts and spokespeople? They cling like flypaper. They can’t be voted out of office. They can’t be petitioned. Where can you ditch them? Permanently?

    Now, The DEVIL went down to WASHINGTON, he was looking for SOULS to steal.
    THE PEOPLE was in a bind, ‘cos REPUBLICANS WAS BLIND, and the DEVIL was there to DEAL.

    When he came across this young man, sawin’ on a fiddle and playin’ it HOT.
    HARRY jumped upon a hickory stump and said: “Boy let ME tell you WHAT:

    “I guess you didn’t KNOW it, but I’m a fiddle PLAYER too.

    “And if you’d care to take a DARE, I’ll make a BET with you.

    “Now YOU play a pretty good fiddle, boy, but give Ole’ HARRY his due:

    “I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul, ‘cos I THINK I’m better than you.”

    The boy said: “My name’s CRUZ and it might be a sin,

    “But I’ll take your bet, your GONNA REGRET, ‘cos I’m the BEST that’s EVER been.”

    CRUZ, rosin up your bow and play that fiddle hard.

    ‘Cos HELLS broke loose WITH THE REPUBLICANS and those DEVILS are dealin’ the CARDS. (…for now)

    The DEVILS opened up their cases and said: “We’ll START this show.”

    And FIRE flew from their fingertips as THEY rosined up THEIR bows.

    And they pulled the bow across the strings and THEY made an EVIL hiss.

    Then a band of DEMONS joined in and it sounded something like this.

    When the devil finished, CRUZ said: “Well you’re pretty good ol’ son.

    “But sit down in that chair, right there, and let ME show you how its DONE.”

    FIRE on the mountain, run boys, run.

    The DEVIL’S in the house IN WASHINGTON.

    CHICKENS in the SENATE, countin’ their DOUGH.

    “HARRY, does your dog, MCCONNELL, bite?”

    “OH, HEAVENS,NO.”

    The DEVILS bowed THEIR heads because they knew they’d be BEAT….(eventually)

    HARRY laid that golden fiddle on the ground at CRUZ’S feet.
    CRUZ said: “Devil just come on back if you ever want to try AGAIN.

    “cause I told you once, you SON OF A GUN, I’m the BEST there’s EVER been.”

    FIRE on the mountain, run boys, run.

    The DEVIL’S in the house IN WASHINGTON.

    CHICKENS in the SENATE, countin’ their DOUGH.

    “HARRY, does your dog, MCCONNELL, bite?”

    HARRY SAID, ”WHAT DO YOU THINK!”

          I hope he is the real deal, because if he is, Mark will have to have him on his show. Mitch McConnell is deceitful, and he has done unspeakable harm to this country. I really wish we could revoke their pensions. They should not be allowed to continue to be paid by the very people they’re destroying. McConnell is an Obamacare supporter, so is the Axelrod of the GOP, Rove. They’re going to lose the entire govt. next year, after this stunt.

      Dont go there. Hang on. Its possible. Look at the recent recalls. Look at and work towards an American save. Its not too late.
      Just think if an amendment was put forward to do term limits. That has wide support. Get that done and the populace will get used to the idea and the process. It can be done and you as well as I need to be a part of it. Dont you think our country is worth it? Come on buck up and dont be a McConnel. Dont give in before the effort is put forth.

      You would rock the South, Mid-West and maybe South-West to the tune of something like 50-100 electoral votes, nothing more.

  • FreeManWalking

    The level of disdain Rove, Priebus, and the rest of the gop establishment held toward conservatives for not showing up to vote after being dismissed and disregarded by Romney will be nothing compared to what they will experience for RINO turnout in 14 and 16.

    I will vote for a Democrat even Adolf Hillery before I will cast another vote for a RINO.

    • NJK

      I won’t be showing up. They stabbed the American people in the back. Karl Rove is the GOP version of Axelrod. They’re of the left now. They’re cut from the same cloth. What they did to Ted Cruz is unforgiveable. They deserve to lose everything.

    • Brent

      We (Democrats) are laughing the whole way until our 2016 landslide (victory). Nominate a “RINO” and people like you won’t vote – we win. Nominate a Tea Party candidate and “RINOs” in which there are many whether you like it or not, won’t vote, or will vote for Moderate Hillary.

      GOP’s dead.

      • jedward1000

        YOU might very well be correct. The GOP is about to die, but the Conservatives are going to take their place. It ALWAYS gets worse before people wake up and things get better. So go ahead and laugh, you will regret all the Leftist agenda in time, even if you never publicly express such.

    Why go through this complex and deceitful process to defund Obamacare when there is an easier solution? SCOTUS ruled and Obama agreed the Individual Mandate is a TAX! Since it’s a TAX the House can use it’s unique power under Article 1 Sec 7 of the US Constitution to regulate taxes. All the House needs to do is vote to give citizens a TAX break eliminating the TAX associated with the Individual Mandate.

All the House needs to do is vote to give citizens a TAX break eliminating the TAX associated with the Individual Mandate. #DeTaxObamacare blog.reporterazzi.com http://www.reporterazzi.com

      Interesting.

      • Reporterazzi

        Nooooo. The penalties / Tax is the food that feeds the Ocare beast. It’s under the threat of the penalty that the admin will force people onto exchanges and raise money to fund it. President knows he can’t go on giving waivers as he has, we all know these waivers to his friends in Big biz, unions and fed employees is just a delay to get through 2014. Couple the vote with @senrandpaul suggestion to force ALL government employees to go on the exchanges and eliminate their privileged subsidy and see how fast Obamacare disappears. It boxes in the liberals, do they keep the subsidy for themselves and vote against a TAX break for hard working Americans and their families? Impossible!

    • LUV2SKICO

      Which of course it did under Nancy Pelosi and the tax was made permanent. So if you want to repeal the tax you need the senate and president to go along. Back to Civics 101, chapter 1. Let us know when you’re ready to retake your test.

      • Reporterazzi

        Why so snarky luv2skico? Of course it needs to go through process but let Senate and President defend not giving a tax break to already struggling families who are now facing 2 and 3 times premium increases, loss of doctors and limited care against big biz waivers, union extensions and gov employee subsidies already receiving relief, (ACA “TAX” breaks) from Obama. Let him put his deeds where his rhetoric is, giving a fair shake to the middle class or continue subsidies to Washington elite and friends. See how that plays going into 2014.

  • desicon

    The traitors must be be kicked out in the primary.

    Rand Paul take back your endorsement of this embarrassment called Mitch McConnell.

    • notpilgrims2

      Kick of Ted Cruz if you want to go after the traitors.

      We are tired of people trying to maintain Democrat control of Senate. No, we don’t want a Democrat to be elected as Kentucky Senator. We will vote for Senate leader Mitch McConnell.

      • notpilgrims2

        We won’t vote for some Democrat loser like that Hollywood Star who tried to run against McConnell. Maybe you will.

      • TIMERUNNERSC

  • notpilgrims2

    Here Mark Levin is stabbing Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of Senate, in the back.

    • nononsense57

      To have a back would require a spine, which McConnell does not posses. I would say rather that Levin is putting it in McConnell’s face!

    • john

      wrong, dude – Mark is telling him to do the job we had elected him to do/he had promised to do.

  • notpilgrims2

    Your headline isn’t even in line with the text of the article. If you read the article it clearly states that Reid is simply proposing an amendment to fund Obamacare. McConnell isn’t going to vote for that amendment. If it passes, it will be the Democrats’ fault for voting for it. You may not be able to count, but the Democrats have more members than the Republicans do. All of this is the result of the elections when the American people stupidly voted for Democrats. If you want to blame it on someone, blame it on crazies like Aiken and on the primariryists who primaried Lugar and Castle and then lost. Now some are talking about primarying McConnell. Do they ever learn. By DEFEATING Republicans, we cannot elect more Republicans. We already defeated Lugar and Castle, and see what happened there. That’s the whole reason we can’t defund Obamacare. You are only making it harder to defund Obamacare the more Democrats you elect.

    • LUV2SKICO

      Lugar and Castle were turned out for their treachery on gun control. Yes, we need better candidates, but so do you establishment types (remember Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist and Jim Jeffords)? Or how about your sure thing in Wisconsin, Tommy Thompson?

      We conservatives primaried out the establishment favorites with Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson (from Wisconsin no less), Deb Fischer, Pat Toomey and Jeff Flake. Not a single one was a Karl Rove establishment Republican pick.

      We’re tired of clubby Republicans and their token limp wristed opposition to the radical Democrats. We need “bold colors” in Reagan’s words. BTW, he was another outsider that the Ford wing (GHWB) hated. Speaking of the establishment Eisenhower/Ford/Bush 41 wing, who was it that appointed Earl Warren and William Brennan to the Supreme Court? Who appointed John Paul Stevens? And more recently, who do we have to thank for David Souter? That’s right, the so called moderate (RINO) wing of the party.

      This is why so many people are donating to the Senate Conservatives Fund instead of the Quisling-run NRSC. That’s how we take our country back.

      • notpilgrims2

        Lugar and Castle were replaced with DEMOCRATS.

        Lugar especially votes with conservatives the vast majority of the time. Castle, a little bit less so, but remember he is in Rhode Island. You clearly do not understand Rhode Island’s political tilt.

      BS! I blame it on the Senate. Reid’s Senate who absolutely refuses to do a budget year after year. Reid has allowed zero discussion on House budgets sent over and Reid’s Senate has put forth one budget in four years,,that he drafted based on a wish-list from Obama. Reid’s Senate is a puppet of Obama, instead of a voice of the people. I blame this entire mess on the majority party and especially the leadership of Reid and Obama. You go ahead and count the sins of the minority party but as you yourself point out, it’s the majority party that has the numbers,,,and they have intentionally put us in this position, knowing people like YOU will blame the Republicans for the Dems not doing their jobs!

    ‘Vichy republicans’ would be more accurate term for the current GOP (there was a French resistance, after all, and there hasn’t been a real GOP resistance.) As for Ted Cruz, he ought to expect nothing but backstabbing from Mitch McConnell. I can’t tell McConnell and Reid apart anymore.

  • tinlizzieowner

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big Mark Levin fan but how many Mark Levin topics do we need to have going at the same time? :-/

      All of them?

      • tinlizzieowner

        Doesn’t the Mark Levin do that? ;-) ;-)

    • http://www.therightscoop.com/ The Right Scoop

      Levin had a big day yesterday. I’ve been posting Levin for a long time now and some days we have multiple Levin posts. Are you just now realizing that? ;-) ;-)

      • tinlizzieowner

        “Are you just now realizing that? ;-) ;-)”
        No, that’s why I’m commenting on it. ;-)
        It’s just redundant and I often find the same comments posted on each topic. In fact, usually I’m the one making them. ;-) ;-)
        This has nothing to do with Levin directly, I’d be saying the same thing if there were 4 topics relating to what Sarah Palin (for instance) said, and I’m a big fan of hers too.

        • twoblackcats

          Hi, and no offense meant — I see you a lot on here with very good comments, but don’t you think we need more Levin? He’s the voice of reason time and time again. Like, Judge Jeanine and Bill Whittle. I frankly don’t get sick of him. But, I respect your opinion.

          • tinlizzieowner

            No offense taken. I listen to his radio show and I read (and agree) with most everything he says. What I’m getting at is, there’s a limited space for topics. Like I said in one of my posts, I would be saying the same thing if there were 4 Palin, 4 Hannity, 4 Coulter, 4 Judge Pirro, or 4 of any of the other people I admire up at the same time. But I don’t run things here (and I don’t want to), I’d just ‘personally’ prefer that the (available) topics cover as much as what is going on in this (screwed, up) world as possible, from a diverse view of authors, that’s all.
            ;-) ;-)

  • Nehemiah

    It is amazing to watch efforts of good people to go to waste only because they do not know and follow the Bible:
    Matt 9, 16-17 states that “do not put unshrunk piece of cloth on old garment”(16) and
    “don’t put a new wine into old wineskins”(17).
    It’s about time to start an official third party and leave STONE AGE GOP alone.
    God bless you Ted Cruz and your supporters. Since you have such STONE AGE opposition – you must be doing something good. You cannot change STONE AGE GOP. Even Jesus was unable to perform miracles in Nazareth because of unbelief.
    You must be a part of a new party. It will take time but it is the way.

      Not trying to be defeatist…but this doesn’t matter
      McConnell and Cornyn are voting for cloture and we need ALL the Pubs incuding some Dems
      This will be sent back to the House to complete the Kabuki theater…IT’S OVER!!!
      We officially LOST on March 23, 2010…go get your subsidies and hope for the best.

      • Conservator1

        McConnell’s announcement that he will vote for cloture and not support Senators Cruz, Lee, etc. in their attempt to just have a 60 majority vote as usual is appalling.

        Mitch has kept silent on this issue because of his reelection bid in 2014. As the Minority Leader of the GOP, he did far worse than “STABBING Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in the back; he stabbed the backs of the majority of Americans who oppose this monstrous bill.

        He not only needs to be removed as the Minority Leader of the Senate – he must be defeated next year. I support Alison Lundergan Grimes and I hope Kentuckians vote for a true conservative.

        • nononsense57

          I wonder if Alison has made any statements about this situation. It might be a chance for her to line up with Cruz, which can only help her.

          • Conservator1

            Her campaign team should begin to run ads starting tomorrow on McConnell’s decision to be a useful tool for RINOs and leftists.

            He deliberately refused to take a position on the defunding Obamacare when the ‘Continuing Resolution’ was debated and passed by the House because of his reelection bid next year.

            It’s shameful that he’s willing to support the likes of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and oppose real CONSERVATIVES such as Senators Cruz and Lee who are standing up for the majority of Americans who want Obamacare repealed.

            September 24, 2013

            Louisville, KY – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin declared his support for Sen. Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund Obamacare and called out Sen. McConnell for refusing to defund Obamacare and actively working to stymie Sen. Cruz’s efforts.

            “Like so many other crucial fights, Mitch McConnell has caved to Harry Reid on Obamacare and is refusing to fight to defund this disastrous legislation,” Matt Bevin said. “There is really no difference between Mitch McConnell and Alison Grimes – both would vote on the side of Harry Reid. I am proud to support conservatives like Sen. Ted Cruz in his fight to defund Obamacare, and I promise the people of Kentucky: I will never cave to Harry Reid.”

    I just don’t understand the GOP Logic. So here we have McConnell who is up for reelection btw and the GOP Establishment is expecting to win the Senate in 2014 really believe they’ll get us all fired up to vote for them by undermining any efforts to save this country from Obamascare?

    I mean isn’t this the real reason why we failed to win the Senate in 2010? Because the Senate GOP knew how to shoot themselves in the darn foot.

    I mean no one will bring up the fact Brown is the one who gave us Dodd-Frank, no one will bring up the fact that McConnell refused to fight to have the START II Treaty with Russia be done in the new Congress instead of the lame duck.

    Lets be honest, when compared to McConnell; Boehner is more Conservative! And that ain’t saying much! Say what you will about Boehner, at least he gave the Senate GOP a chance. And here we have McConnell, backstabbing not just Cruz and Lee, but all the House GOP & WE THE PEOPLE!

    I hate these people.

    • sDee

      The GOP logic is simple. The Republican establishment are Progressives and have been for many many decades.

      The agenda of the Globalists and Progressives is to dismantle America from within – like a body’s immune system attacking itself.

      Obamacare is exactly that type self destrucitve mechanism – to collapse the private heath insurance industry while consolidating health care providers under large regional state university consortia and public-private-partnerships.

      What they are doing is perfectly logical given their unspoken goal.

            Looks as thought Mr Ross Perot was right on the mark about the Giant Sucking Sound he tried to warn Americans about.

                Since this program has been around for so long I’m sure I’ve heard of it, but I didn’t relate the programs name Agenda 21. The related terms I’ve heard many times from democrats and republicans. I scanned through the information and while reading the information, it brought to mind the message Rush Limbaugh has been sending out for many years saying “Green is Red” because the environmental movement is nothing less than a communist movement filled with lefties, he also says , and I agree with Mr Limbaugh, when he says the same about the global warming crowed. Their motto is the means justifies the ends, that is to say, the end of America as founded.

    I don’t understand who these McConnell types think will vote for them. Will the base? No. Will democrats? No. I don’t get it. Apparently these folks didn’t learn the lesson of the 2010 midterms.

    To think that the Tea Party is the enemy to these folks is illuminating. In North Michigan one of our State Reps. Pete Pettalia (R) actually said to some Tea Party folks last week, that he “doesn’t ask for or need Tea Party support”. So, we’re going to test that theory.

    Back in ’74 we had our second baby with no health insurance. The total bill for doctor and hospital? 500.00
    Progressives over every stripe were spawned in hell.

    • fauxlover

      Your post is false. You cannot have had a rate hike due to the ACA. It is not in effect yet.

      • Richard Disman

        Well if you read the bill you would understand. ALL policies have to have these mandated coverages under the law, even ones you buy outside the exchanges and ones provided by your work. They have to be in effect by 1 Jan. SO the companies are adding these things to you bill and sending out the new cost already. The exchanges are for people that don’t have insurance, or want to change their insurance coverage after 1 Oct.

        And yes these changes are mandated by the ACA law, and these changes will not take effect until 1 Jan and your 2014 billing cycle. The companies are also required to inform you of these changes before they take effect so you can drop them to change to a different plan. The problem is this is a base Bronze level plan and all the other plans (if you have any other chooses) will be the same.

        • fauxlover

          Last year ALL policies (in the same group) were mandated by law to cover maternity. I am not female, and my wife is long past child bearing age. Before Obamacare.

          Last year ALL policies (in the same group) were mandated by law to cover mental health. Unlike you, I am not crazy, nor is my wife. Before Obamacare.

  • Scolded for the Truth

    If you would like to do something to help defund Obamacare, I share just below what I did last night.

    Last night, I set aside three hours to write all our senators. I went to senate.gov and then to the email senators page. After putting together an email about defunding Obamacare that would relate to both repubs and dem., I sent the email to every senator, including McConnell and Cornyn. MAke the email positive, but clearly to the point. Some of the senators on the senate.gov page are no longer in office, so I went to their personal websites to send the email. Please join me in this effort. If you do this, please press the “vote up” button so that we can all keep a count of how many are participating. We need to support Cruz, Lee and those who care about the American people.

    Here is a copy of the email that I sent to assist you in writing your own email.

    Senator,

    NO CLOSURE VOTE FRIDAY

    If you’re considering voting to FUND Obamacare or possibly playing some procedural trick: Read this:

    “When I saw the letter when I came home from work,” Andy said, describing the large red wording on the envelope from his insurance carrier, “(it said) ‘your action required,benefit changes, act now.’ Of course I opened it immediately.”

    It had stunning news. Insurance for the Mangiones and their two boys,which they bought on the individual market, was going to almost triple in 2014 — from $333 a month to $965.”

    This is one of thousands of stories. Do you care anymore for the people of this country. DEFUND OBAMACARE NOW! We will never forget! NEVER!

    • badbadlibs

      Thank you for the link. I will be doing the same. My coverage went from 300 per month to 550. I’m being forced to pay for services I will never use.

        Two things:
        1. It is really bad form to be the one who replies to their own comment.
        2. How do you think Obamacare caused a rise in your rates when the exchanges are not even in operation yet?
        Conclusion:
        You are full of baloney.

        • badbadlibs

          1. What the he ll are you talking about.
          2. o bamadoesnotcare is forcing insurance companies to cover services across the board. I’m being FORCED to pay for pediatric dental and vision when my children are fully grown. I’m also being forced to pay for maternity and newborn coverage when it will never be used.
          Conclusion:
          You’re ignorant.

          • fauxlover

            WOW, you have drank the Kool-Aid, haven’t you? The exchanges have not even started operation yet, but you are being FORCED to change plans now and have a rate increase. All before the ACA even starts operating.

            You are a liar.

              Because if you are, then I wish there was a way I could show you the letter I received from my insurance company. But, since I can’t I will just chalk your ignorant response to my posts as just another brain dead liberal speaking out of his/her ass.

                That’s it! When you wing nuts have no rational response to add to the conversation, you fall back on the old favorites, character assassination and name calling. You met that threshold, my friend. KUDOS!

                • badbadlibs

                  You assassinated your own character, Marxists nut. You are calling me a liar when you don’t have the facts nor understand the bill you come here to support.
                  I have received a letter from my insurance company raising my rates by 250.00 more a month to cover the mandates of obamacare. Whether you understand or believe that portion of the law is on you.
                  And if you think I give a rats hairy ass what you think of me, you are more delusional then most left wing nuts. And btw, I am not now nor ever will be your “friend” in any way shape or form. Now go suck something and stop making a fool out of yourself and showing the world what a stupid person you actually are.

                  That was one classy post, my friend. Well, maybe not.

                • badbadlibs

                  Right up there with calling me a liar and making accusations about sex. You leftists have taken hypocrisy to heights never before seen by man. But, go ahead, continue to make a horses ass out of yourself, it’s no bother to me.

      This is what I wrote to M. Cantwell:

      Dear Madam,
      I am begging you to vote to defund obamacare. I was just offered the bronze plan at a rise in premium of 250.00 PER MONTH! President Obama promised that rates would go DOWN by 2,500 per year! PROMISED!
      I am being forced to pay for pediatric dental and vision coverage. My children are in their late 30’s! I am also being FORCED to pay for maternity and newborn coverage, I am past child bearing years! This is unfair and should be illegal. Will YOU help me pay for the costs of things I don’t need or want? YOU support the president and his bills. Can I expect a check from you each month to cover my extra expenses?
      Sincerely,

    scumsuckers McConnell and cornyn are both kneecapping cruz, both need to go, conservatives need to send them home.
    WE MUST SUPPORT DEFUNDING OBAMA CARE AND REJECTING MCCONELLCARE. BYE MITCH, TRAITOR.

    McConnell’s primary opponent Matt Bevin needs to pounce, now and hard, and remember rand paul is endorsing the treacherous traitor McConnell, maybe he could be persuaded to withdraw his support.unfortunately, paul has been a bit of a squish on this one. maybe some calls can stiffen his spine.
    Paul offices:
    Phone: 202-224-4343
    Phone: 270-885-1212
    Phone: 502-582-5341
    Phone: 859-426-0165

    Matt, renounce this progressive weakling McConnell. you must win your primary against this tool of oblamer and rove, the country needs it.

      From Matt Bevin, McConnell’s primary opponent:

      Matt Bevin to Stand with Ted Cruz, McConnell to Stand with Harry Reid
      September 24, 2013

      Louisville, KY – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin declared his support for Sen. Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund Obamacare and called out Sen. McConnell for refusing to defund Obamacare and actively working to stymie Sen. Cruz’s efforts.

      “Like so many other crucial fights, Mitch McConnell has caved to Harry Reid on Obamacare and is refusing to fight to defund this disastrous legislation,” Matt Bevin said. “There is really no difference between Mitch McConnell and Alison Grimes – both would vote on the side of Harry Reid. I am proud to support conservatives like Sen. Ted Cruz in his fight to defund Obamacare, and I promise the people of Kentucky: I will never cave to Harry Reid.”

      The only way to repeal Obamacare is to win elections. You can’t win elections by eating your own and demanding that senators back a plan that can’t work and will only result in loss of more elections.

      • DawgfaninFL

        They could do their jobs that they were elected to do. Represent their people. They have failed time and again. They are the reason why Republicans lose elections. Their base has lost faith and refuse to hold their noses to vote on a party line. If you can’t stand for something you stand for nothing.

    • Scolded for the Truth

      I called Paul’s office to ask if he was endorsing McConnell. The staffer said, absolutely. When I told the staffer that this was a betrayal of his conservative principles that he promised us he would maintain, the staffer told me that Paul’s actions speak for themselves. My response. “They sure do. But we will determine whether or not he is speaking for us. Enjoy your Obamacare while the rest of us suffer.” The staffer could have cared less about the people of this country, and apparently neither does Rand Paul. Rather than being annoyed at Paul, he chose to be annoyed by me.

  • CaptMorgan

    Why is there not one word being spoken of the fact that our country has not had a budget in 5 years!? Make the dems put down on paper what they stand for! WTF!

  • Patti Jury

    When you call McConell…only one word need be spoke…”COLORADO”!!!!!!!!

  • lawngren

    You have to hound these jackals every step, 24/7. They can’t be trusted to be alone. If you leave them in a room with a democrat and come back in five minutes, you’ll find another pice of the Constitution missing and another assault on freedom and privacy and America’s economy well under way.

    Traitors. “A bas les politicians!”

  • Cort

    Apparently the Senators have no clue what they are doing or reading.. As if this is a big shocker..

  • DrJayBee

    The thing with McConnell is that it seems like he wants to pass ObamaCare, but be able to say “I voted against it”….

  • Hillary Shackley

    Nothing a RINO does surprises me, just don’t get caught voting for one- no telling what they plan on doing to you to make your life miserable. Worthless politicians- at least you know where a communist democrat stands, no guessing there. Hussein Obama- fundamentally screwing all of America and in broad daylight to boot.

  • MiketheMarine

    Well, at least the country will have a list of congress people to vote OUT come November. We will need the vote list of who voted how and publish it everywhere possible come September or October of next year.
