King, Bachmann Pledge: Vote 'NO' on any CR That Permits Obamacare Funding - CNS News Representatives Steve King (R.-Iowa) and Michele Bachmann (R.-Minn.), two of the leading congressional proponents of the Tea Party movement, have taken a pledge and are asking all other House members to join them in it.  Its terms are simple: The member vows to vote “no” on any continuing resolution that permits any funding for the implementation of Obamacare.  King and Bachmann sent a letter on Thursday to House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers (R.-Ky.) asking them to include language completely defunding Obamacare in any new continuing resolution (CR).  At the same time, King and Bachmann released a statement asking their House colleagues to join them in signing the letter and in pledging to vote against any CR that allows the Obama administration to spend any money to implement any part of Obamacare.  Read more........


Letter to Leadership to Defund Obamacare - Michele Bachmann - Redstate -  Last night my colleague Rep. Steve King (IA-05) and I drafted a letter to Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor and Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers urging them to include language to defund ObamaCare and rescind the $105,464,000,000 in funds already appropriated to implementing the health care law.  Next Wednesday the House will consider another Continuing Resolution. Including language to defund ObamaCare is our opportunity to stop the flow of funds to ObamaCare once and for all. Our suggested language is, “Notwithstanding any other provision of law, none of the funds made available by this or any previous Act with respect to any fiscal year may be used to carry out the provisions of Public Law 111-148, Public Law 111-152, or any amendment made by either such Public Law.”  Read more........
Will Freshman House Republicans Keep Their Promise - Redstate -   House Republicans are unveiling their next short-term continuing resolution today to keep the government from shutting down on March 18. It is a three week-extension, $6 billion in cuts with no new policy riders..........  So far the freshmen class is complicit in this dead-end strategy by allowing it.   They have the votes to tell their Leadership no. But so far, they refuse. They have refused to fight to defund Obamacare and Planned Parenthood in these negotiations, and they are giving their Leadership far too much flexibility to avoid a fight. In doing so, they are empowering Leadership and letting themselves be co-opted. The freshmen need to realize that Leadership never plays to win—they play to not lose. But we didn’t send them to Washington to play for ties. Make no mistake. The soul of the freshmen class is on the line in this fight.  Read more.......
How House Republican Leaders Are Going to Betray House Freshmen - Redstate -   Allow me to explain what the House Republicans are doing — not that they will ever admit it. The House Republicans leaders are scared to death of shutting down the government, never mind that a shutdown is really just a slow down. The House Republicans leaders absolutely, unequivocally do not want a shut down. Mean time, the Democrats would love a shutdown. They remember 1995, and they remember that it was the government shutdown of 1995 that put Bill Clinton back in the driver’s seat......If a continuing resolution and debt ceiling debate were merged, moderates would be empowered to push for minimal cuts, no defunding of Obamacare, no defunding of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, no defunding of Planned Parenthood, etc. Republican leaders in the House and Democratic leaders in the Senate would be in the comfy position of being able to ignore conservatives in the name of a “good government compromise,” which is Washington Speak for growing the size and scope of government while pretending not to.   Read more......
