*NEWSFLASH via Drudge*: Nobamacare: House Votes to Defund Obamacare, Boehner claims: Victory for Common Sense

With a Sept. 30 deadline, Congress is trying to move fast. Democrats are calling this a stunt, Republicans are saying nobody really wants Obamacare anyway. Voting was almost directly along party lines: 230 to 189, and Democrats wasted no time deriding the action, Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) was quoted, saying, "It is a wolf in wolves' clothing." Funny, that's what many of us wondered about the law itself when we heard Nancy Pelosi say: "We have to pass the law to see what is in it!"

This is one of the best reasons to pass The Read the Bills Act yet, I wish Senator Tom Coburn had followed through on his threat. Maybe someone with more intestinal fortitude will do it for him.

This newsflash is two weeks

This newsflash is two weeks late.

Hmmmm..... that's strange

I wasn't aware that Boehner was familiar with "common sense"

This took the cake for most fun comment on the thread...

IMHO. Thank you!

Senate version goes to conference and all is forgotten

Except that the House did something correct, once upon a time.

Free includes debt-free!

ohh nowwww Boehner grows a pair - oh the comedy of it all

The reality is - this is more stunts.

If the Repubs were serious- it would be no debate - the government shuts down or it gets defunded. If the repubs had a line in the sand - yes pun intended - and ANYBODY thought they were serious - it would be a story.

But we all know it will be another miraculous save to stop a shut down in the 11th hour.

Gives our friends at the msm something to talk about.

I miss the Tom&Jerry cartoons

They were the best part about the theatre.

But the cat never gets the mouse

It is a little spoiled when you already know the final outcome.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

This will never pass the

This will never pass the Senate. I like the take given by Andrew Schiff's guest this morning on the Peter Schiff show: It will never be defunded at least while Democrats control the Senate and House, and probably not if the Republicans take these back because let's face it they didn't roll back any government from 2000-2006. But if we just let it go into effect and people see how terrible it is, it will likely do a lot more damage to the statists' cause. Sometimes you have to take a step back in order to take a step forward.

So, I'm waiting for what really gets passed

This is a weak bill to start with to appease the masses. No way these bastards defund Obamacare. I think this is just enough to make people move along then the real bill from a conference committee with the senate will come forward. I expect that to have Obamacare fully funded with a long list of extra garnish to buy some votes.

"obamacare" is socialistic...

in it's truest form. In it's essence, it makes slaves of us all...completely.

You just thoght you were a SLAVE before.

Ah...theater!

Poor performance by a bunch of people who shouldn't be in the theater business.

Obamacare, unfortunately, is not going away. The only thing that will stop Obamacare is a national bankruptcy or a coup d'etat.

Does this have to be passed by the Senate as well?

If not then I guess this is a victory. If it does, then this is nothing more then theatrics.

and now the vote deadends as it will go no further in the Senate

And now the vote dead ends as it will go no further in the Senate, and Obama will obviously veto it. Luckily, since the person in charge of the US economy is not on the Hill but in the Marriner Eccles building, this entire theater is irrelevant.

thanks for update SteveMT.

You are welcome.

Congress has repealed Obamacare 37 times, by almost the same vote count as today and all went nowhere.

This is the first time that they have "defunded" rather than repealed it. If ever it could get to get to the Senate, Rand would filibuster it, IMO. Harry Reid has never let it be put on the agenda to even be debated.

Maybe this time will be different.

Obama has Veto Power Steve

Its dead on his desk,

It should never have been funded in the first place

It's not news until the Senate vote.

The Senate is unlikely to go along with it.

You raised a valuable point

but what if it gets filibustered, and not voted on? Is this possible?

That's when Obama gets to step in

Ultimately it goes back to the executive branch whereas he can veto

I'm bumping this and emalvini's posts

Since we both posted at the same time.

Thanks emalvini, my friend!

Guess it's time to call your senators. DownsizeDC has some great reasons to defund:
