It’s bad enough that the Washington establishment is against the idea of fighting Obamacare in the upcoming CR. But now Republican governors are coming out against the idea as well, suggesting there is too much to lose if the government shuts down over this:

NEWSMAX – Republican governors, worried about the standing of their party with voters, warned GOP members of Congress this weekend against trying to shut down the government just to make their points about Obamacare.

“I have made the case that Obamacare is not good for the economy, but I have some real concerns about potentially doing something that would have a negative impact on the economy just for the short term,” Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told The New York Times at a weekend meeting of the National Governors Association in Milwaukee.

Walker was among governors who spoke to the Times about their differences with tea party and other conservative GOP members of Congress, who appear intent on forcing a confrontation with President Barack Obama over the budget, that could lead to a government shutdown.

The threat is opposed by state executives, who depend on the federal government to keep many state-level programs operational. They worry, Walker said, about the potential disruption it could cause to state businesses and services, the Times notes.

“It would affect all of us,” Walker said. “The worst part is the uncertainty. My great fear would be anything that provides great uncertainty for the employers of our country.”

North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple expressed concern about the political price Republicans could pay if their pushback against Obamacare results in a shutdown.

“I’ve never felt shutting down government function is a wise thing to do politically because I think, whoever is involved in it, it’s the Congress, regardless of what party they’re affiliated with, that will be blamed by the public,” Dalrymple said. “And so, to me, I don’t see what it accomplishes.”

Gov. Phil Bryant of Mississippi, one of many Republican governors who has refused to participate in Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, questioned whether it is worth the risk to the party to continue its repeated efforts to try to repeal or defund the law through legislation or the threat of a government shutdown.

“How much blood are we going to leave on the floor over this?” he asked.

“Take the battle to the floor, debate it, do all that you can to get the bill passed because we believe in eliminating Obamacare completely. That’s why we didn’t expand it,” Bryant said. “But at some point we have to realize that the federal government — because of the support of our military, support of our public safety, our infrastructure — we have to have a budget.”

    My suggestion would be for Scott Walker to make the case for what funding ObamaCare will eventually do to all of us. Why he doesn’t give the full argument is beyond me. Exactly, what is his answer here?

    • deTocqueville1

      opinionatedhermit Agreed, his comments are beyond weak, they are craven!

  • deTocqueville1

    Walker has done a great job so far in Wisconsin however we shoudl not forget that he is essentially a DC establishment guy who is close to Ryan and the House leadership. I suspect he is positioning himself for a 16 run. His comments represent the superficial and lame mush we hear being repeated by the RINOs. Support needs to go whole heartedly to Cruz and Lee and the other patriots not these DC fellow travellers and apologists.

    Scott Walker is thinking “short term”, not “long term”.   He is drinking the rino kool aid.

    • FutureOnePercent

      Amjean “Short term” as in, his poltical lifetime… 
      Once you get the taste of power, you’ll do ANYTHING to keep it.

  • Tallgal83

    His whole logic is why the GOP loses, and the base did right by sitting at home last year.  There aren’t any differences between Libs and GOP anymore.  I see more Republicans defending Obama’s policies, than his own party.

    • nortagem

      Tallgal83 “I see more Republicans defending Obama’s policies, than his own party.” I know! WTH?! This is why I’m using the term ‘Democratic Republican’ again…of course, it’s got a whole NEW meaning to it…but hey, everybody seems to be fine with redefining terminology these days!

  • Laurel A

    When these guys say this stupid kind of stuff I see where the school system has been ruined for decades. Sorry but that is not a fine example of critical thinking skills since there never ever has been an entitlement that has ever been repealed in this country…nor has there ever been such a ground swell of support for the repeal of an entitlement.
    Until we clean up the morality problems on our side of the aisle then we will never mount an effective campaign or scrubbing of this country. It won’t matter who the GOP puts up they will lose with this kind of disarray. 
    Also remember you have a lot of GOP governors implementing those exchanges, including Florida and AZ, due to the money factor. They just couldn’t resist. What they don’t realize though is the Democrats with that very a small effort just made their red states blue.

    • deTocqueville1

      Laurel A Exactly!

  • The Sentinel

    There’s no downside whatsoever to defunding Obamacare… and ONLY upside.
    I respect and support Scott Walker… but he’s dead wrong as many others are about talking against defunding this crap legislation/law.

    • PVG

      The Sentinel  We all need to tweet some sense to Walker!

      • Orangeone

        PVG The Sentinel  Walker only cares about the money.  Big corp employers benefit from ObamaCare because they financially benefit hiring illegals over Americans.  It’s been the game plan from the very beginning.

  • Jim25

    I never knew Walker would be an a-hole. We saved his skin in the recall, it’s not a good idea to insult his base and work against it.

    • marketcomp

    See, the thing about toast, there’s nothing you can do to turn it back into fresh bread.

  • LouisLaGuardiaIII

    This is the major problem with the republican party right now, they are too scared to fight. What we need are republicans that have the backbone of Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon. Reagan didn’t back down in fear when the dems threatened him politically for calling the USSR an ‘evil empire’ and Nixon despite the criticism from the other side, didn’t back down from going after Alger Hiss and calling him and some others  out on the left for the communists that they were.

    • palintologist

      We already have her.

  • njmom

    They’re all worried about losing financial support for their next campaign and don’t care about we the people. The RNC probably got to them and warned them if they sided with conservatives they’d be on their own.

    • nortagem

      njmom Screw the RNC! We need to DEFUND them!

      • njmom

        nortagem njmom I agree. Politics is all about $$$$$$$$$$$$

    • Orangeone

      njmom Yup. And Walker is peddling to the big corps that want to hire illegal aliens and fire Americans to avoid the health insurance costs and ObamaCare penalties.  This is EXACTLY what big business wants, it was never about health care, it was always intent on lowering their labor and overhead costs.

  • Longiron

    The RINO GOP keeps getting stupid by the minute and you cannot FIX stupid. Let Barry shut the Gov’t down and start selling he will SHUT it down because they are standing up for working AMERICA, UNIONS , JOBS and others who do not want the job killing bill called OBAMACARE. TRY OFFENSE you A**HOLES!!!!!!

  • nortagem

    Why the cowardice now? Why the cowardice at all? A so-called government ‘shutdown’ by-design keeps only the necessities of government running. If our lawless President wants to challenge that, threatening those vital roles, then let us witness his tyranny full-bore. The GOP should be daring him…not backing down before the fight! You’d NEVER see Tip O’Neill or Nancy Pelosi capitulating like this, regardless of minority/majority status. And damn what the liberal media thinks about it! Every member of the GOP should be in front of a camera & a microphone explaining the TRUTH of the matter…and if they can’t, then they need to go. Simple as that.

  • Stehekin912

    Who took our brave Governor Walker and replaced him with this guy?

    • Orangeone

      Stehekin912 Paul Ryan.  Walker will mimic Ryan becaus they want to run against each other in 2016 for potus.

      • Stehekin912

        That is too bad.  Ryan has lost his credibility with Conservatives, and now it looks like Walker is, too.

        • Orangeone

          Stehekin912 Ryan is already raising money using Romney’s donor list and Romney is nudging his big donors to support Ryan.

  • FutureOnePercent

    If this government were to be shut down it would be the best day of my life.
    “This is a tumor, not a government.”

  • Orangeone

    Watch for Walker to take the Medicaid expansion dollars in 90 days or less.  He will. He sold out a state that is functioning with his spew of illegal alien amnesty.

  • marketcomp

    Ok Governors, all of you
    have expressed your dismay about the economic disaster that is “Obamacare,” but
    you insist on implementing the economic disaster. Does Obama have something on you as many of us
    believe he had on Justice Roberts? This makes everyone of us believe that political pressure is to go-along-to-get along
    and all of you gave into it. Is that leadership? No, it’s not Governors! How can either one of these Governors not want
    to shut-it-down given the predictions of it’s demise and the very real effects
    that it is having on the economy and it really has not gone into effect yet? So
    are you really advocating a debacle of a law to be implemented as Senators
    Coburn and Chambliss? Coburn on the Senate floor listing all of the negative
    effects and agreeing with Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz but Coburn doesn’t
    advocate defunding? There is really something strange going on here and that is
    why you guys should live your life right and in an honorable way as to not
    allow anyone to hold you hostage. Gov. Walker says, “I have made the case that
    Obamacare is not good for the economy, but I have some real concerns about potentially
    doing something that would have a negative impact on the economy just for the
    short term.” Governor, you said “short-term.” Short-term or long-term the
    damaging effects that it will have for generations to come is well worth any
    shut-down.Yes, I want to leave blood on
    the floor because part of the problem is that we have not pushed-back or fault
    back against this tyrannical leader and
    now I see why. All of you are just punks and any sign of push-back you whimper
    and of course that’s what you have been calculated to do. So my question is what
    does the little Marxist have on you, any of you? Come clean, tell it all so we
    can get on with the business of saving this Country!

  • Micawber

    A guy called into Rush the other day; he said, you know, the truth is, all we can cut is a small portion of Obamacare – we cannot cut enough of it to undermine it.  
    Apparently, this is what Rove is saying; and I don’t know if this is correct.  
    Assuming this is correct, this is what he went on to say:  if we cannot actually do any damage to it, the fact that we shut down the government and made any cuts at all will provide canon fodder for the left.  
    I don’t know of the veracity of this; I hope it’s not true. 
    If it is, maybe it makes sense; then again, as Rush says, the left will lambast the GOP no matter what it does.  
    Fact:  we have to get better at messaging.  
    And, of course, the longer we wait, the more difficult Obamacare is going to be to dislodge.

  • Micawber

    This is why I hate the term “elites” – someone who was truly “elite” would do what is right; not what idiot consultants say; not what is in their own selfish interests; not what will make them popular with the mainstream media, or at upper east side cocktail parties.  These people aren’t elites; they’re slaves – nay, they’re lower than slaves because slaves at least know that they are, in fact, slaves.

    • cabensg

      Micawber But their rich slaves so they figure that makes it okay.

  • odin147

    I agree with all the governors, we do need a budget big time, that is why I urge all of them to push the one not to have a fight on the cr.

    • marketcomp

      odin147 Yeah, and if we had a budget there would be no need for a cr.

  • Booker

    I’ve had it up to here with the naysayers. They’ve tried to repeal Obamacare 40 times (you’d think they would have stopped at 10 or so), the country doesn’t like Obamacare. Why should we just lie down and take this abuse? Why? Tell me why? I wish these naysayers will tell us their own solution to this mess.

  • joyfulgiver

    Well, if they had a BUDGET, they might realize they DON’T have money to spend on obamacare.    America needs financial responsibility more than we need nationalized health care, which is all the establishment is focused on.   A CR is as bad as those who think just because they have checks in their checkbook, they still have money in the bank.  Absurd!

    • Stehekin912

      Yeah, I thought Bryant’s “we have to have a budget” comment was kind of amusing in a sad little way.

  • SurfinCowboy

    I am against shutting down the government too – that’s why I encourage the Senate to pass, and the POTUS to sign the CR (that will fund everything except Obamacare) that the House will send to them.
    For if anyone is going to “shut down the government”, I believe that would be the Senate or the POTUS, for they would have been presented a bill that defunds a hated piece of legislation, yet funds the rest of government.
    This issue aside, the GOP blew this opportunity they had. They just needed to send over the CR and all be behind it, get on TV and in the news for what they were doing, explain it to the people, and get them to understand what they intended to do. Then when the Senate refused to take it up, the GOP – in one solid voice – goes out and makes a statement that they wished the Democrats would listen to the people and their dislike for this law, but since they won’t the GOP will now send over a CR that funds everything because the GOP does not want the Democrats to “shut the government down”. You get the issue out, you made your argument, you got attention, all of this remains in the voter’s minds before the mid-term elections of next year – an election where the GOP could hammer the Democrats for forcing them to fund Obamacare by threatening to “shut down the government”.
    But no. The weak-willed, spongy-spined RINOs and establishment Republicans thought it better to divide their party, to side with the opposition, to attack each other in a desperate attempt to have the MSM “like” them, to not have to relive the “horrors” of the last shutdown – a shutdown in which they gained 2 seats in the Senate and forced Clinton to sign reforms and bring about the first budgetary surplus in decades.
    Nice job losers. You had a full house, aces high, and you chose to fold. Nicely done. You make me sick. Your strategy of defeat and division is just vile.

  • BetseyRoss

    The point is to not shut down government(although I don’t have a problem with it)  The point is to defund Obamacare.  The only one that would react like that would be Obama and he refuses to sign it.  Obama is the one shutting down the government.  I know, it would be too much for the lofo voters to understand, but there it is.  Obama shuts down government.  I love it.

    • marketcomp

      BetseyRoss You know, I think it would be interesting for Obama and Reid to go to the Podium or use the bully pull-pit to say, ” We must shut-down the Government because those mean Republicans want to defund a Law that is destroying the economy, creates thousands of regulations, and even implements death panels.” Then they will say, ” I wonder why the Republicans would be against that?!” I would love for him, Harry Reid, and all the dems to defend this law that most agree is a debacle.

    • lawngreen

      BetseyRoss  The quivering RINOs of the Right are too frightened of the howling lunatics of the Left. Secret weapon to defeat a RINO: call it a rude name. That makes them want to run home to their mommies and hide under the covers, curled up and sucking their thumbs.

    They have already lost because they are letting the media dictate the language.  They aren’t shutting down the government, they approving a bill without obamacare funding because that is what the american people want.  If obama wants to shut down the government by vetoing their bill that’s his problem.

  • DarkKnight2016

    Well you can’t blame them. Threats of a government shutdown threatens contracts they have to fix up roads and bridges and other various project in which they would need the federal governments help.  That is an issue Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma brought up during Saturdays meeting of the National Governors Association when the topic was transportation and infrastructure and the guest was speaker was Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA), Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman.

    • lawngreen

      DarkKnight2016  I can’t blame them? Watch me! The roads and our healthcare will both be full of potholes when obamacarenot is fully implemented.

      • Orangeone

        lawngreen DarkKnight2016 The transportation budget and other special appropriations are set separately from the continuing resolution.  Transportation in particular is capital improvement and is usually a multi-year plan with the feds paying a portion (of our tax dollars employers send them out of our paychecks), the gas taxes paid at the gas pump and the state share.  It’s a ridiculous argument.

        • Orangeone

          Jim25OrangeonelawngreenDarkKnight2016One fell during construction, 35W fell during reconstruction and another one almost fell during construction. The only thing they had in common was government design, government maintenance, government supervision. The Federal Highway Administration oversees but MNDOT is ultimately responsible. Graves tried to argue Bachmann didn’t support enough funding. None of these were because of lack of funding. Actually if the funding had been cut, maintenance would not have occurred on 35W and it wouldn’t have fallen.

    • Bill589

      DarkKnight2016 The Federal government gives the states money, that it gets from the states.

          Maybe with Collins I’m being unrealistic although Graham and Alexander should be really worried.

          Yes, Graham can be dethroned if we work hard enough to do it.

    I suggest some of these governors should tune into the internet instead of the Network news shows and see where the actual truth of what defunding is all about. A simple search of Heritage Action or the transcript of Limbaughs interview with Senator Lee  would stop them from making remarks about something which they have no real knowledge of.

    When are the Republicans ever going to grow some b..ls!! They seem to whimp out every time we need them to fight for the people.

    It seems to me these repubs ought to be more concerned about the nation than their party.
    I think they’re so full of themselves they can’t acknowledge the writing on the wall.  They want to preserve the reputation of the party – ha – what reputation?  They have the reputation of cowards who are happy with the status quo and wouldn’t fight if you slapped their mother.  That’s why people are turning away.
    News flash Walker and other repubs – stand and fight you’ll find people who will have your back.
