Mark Levin: Mitch McConnell just STABBED Ted Cruz and Mike Lee IN THE BACK

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:

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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?

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)… Read more »

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. #DeTaxObamacare blog.reporterazzi.com http://www.reporterazzi.com

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!

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.

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.

Awww…the mystical pure conservative vs a bunch of RINOs, what a joke. The sad part is neither can accomplish anything without the other.

When the mandated health insurance takes most, if not all, my paycheck and I won’t be able to pay my bills thanks to Obamacare. I am going to give Boehner’s, McConnell’s, Pelosi’s, Reid’s, McCain’s, Graham’s, Cantor’s, Ryan’s and Obama’s name and telephone. I am going to tell anyone I owe money these are the guys who have my money, so contact them if you want to be paid.

These carrion congress members are too busy picking the flesh from the bloated rotting corpse that is our federal government to be bothered with representing the people. They are vile hideous creatures that reveal more and more of their true nature each day.

The establishment GOP will fade away with age. Conservative should decide if they want to wait out the retirements then try to take over this fundraising mechanism (that’s all it is), or just bite the bullet and start a replacement party.

Exactly right – unless Cruz gets nominated. But if that happens it might be another Goldwater moment for the GOP.

The GOP is a statist party. Conservatives need to come to grips with this reality.

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.

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.

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.

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.

people are sooo fed up with both parties, that a new (to be established… by……Levin, Rush, Savage, Palin, Cruz?)Conservative Party has huge chance to become a dominant power.

In order to generate a landslide, you might need to do something about the dying economy first.

Other than accelerate the death, that is.

Just think America, if we had a dozen Teds, Lees or Palins, we could rock the world! We are not that far from winning the senate in 2014,but we MUST keep up the fight!

YUP. Thats the spirit. Come on folks. Who has contacted a rep this week?
You cant expect to win if you dont play!. Some of us were so dispirited when Obama won,and then after the 2010 midterms we just laid down and thought the fight was over. Well look at the result. Our fight for the true America is not a one time effort. Its going to take our lifetimes!. Are you up for it or not? Or are you just happy to whine on a blog and think you have done your part.
Sorry to be harsh. But the times call for it!

I wonder if the reason Ky hasn’t thrown McConnellTURD out is because every appendage they grab a hold of it leaves that STINKY Stuff on their hands?.

All these RINOs will get voted right back into office.

The game is over…The country is LOST!!

The only thing out there is Levin’s “amendment” proposal but that is just wishful honking the “nth” degree…but I give credit for Levin making a lot of money on the book…seriously, good for him

Not if people support good Constitutional Conservatives who are running against them. Please check out those who are running and support them any way you can! AND tell everyone you know about them too! http://constfreparty.blogspot.com/2013/09/endorsements.html

Absolutely Duckie.
We have forgotten our voice of power and replaced it with a voice of whining.
You cant win every battle. But you cant win any battle if you dont participate. Whining is not participating. And just voting isnt enough anymore either.
We want McConnel and Bonner to stand up and fight. Well how how about we practice a dose of our own prescription.

Arch No!
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. Email some reps this week and feel the power!
