In an effort to show a serious attempt at cooperation and bipartisanship, Congressional Republicans plan on offering real compromise in 2016 by asking President Obama to repeal his place in American history.
The very first bill that Republicans will force through both chambers of Congress, which will also have a 100% guarantee of veto by President Obama, will fully repeal Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood. The measure has already passed the Senate, under the same rules that Democrats threatened to use in the past but Republicans begged them not to. This was done to protect it from Democratic filibuster.
Yes. The party of no new ideas since 1950 has decided to go back to beating the reliable old dead horse of erasing the first black president’s mark on American history.
Not to be outdone by a presidential veto, Republicans also plan to hold a veto override vote on Jan. 22nd, which is being done to pander to Christian anti-abortion extremists who are holding their annual march against women’s rights on the same day. The veto-override is also a guaranteed failure.
The Republican party has officially turned from an actual party interested in governance to the guy who graduated high school 5 years ago but still hangs out in the student parking lot – sitting on the hood of his car and acting cool to the clueless freshman.
It costs approximately $1.5 million every time a vote is held to repeal Obamacare.
Republicans have engaged in this fiasco over 50 times. It is beyond absurd. There is no money for <insert whatever here>, yet when Republicans want to do something like this there is always more than enough money. There is so much that they don’t even mention the costs when discussing their concept of fiscal responsibility.
Paul Ryan was quoted as saying:
You’re going to see us put a bill on the president’s desk going after Obamacare and Planned Parenthood so we’ll finally get a bill on his desk to veto.
We’ll finally get a bill on his desk to veto. Honestly, what the hell?
