(TeaParty.org) – Will the Republican Party sell America down the river in the name of keeping the peace and avoiding finger-pointing from the left?
With the continual funding of the budget the Republican Party in essence will fund ObamaCare for an undetermined amount of time. By funding ObamaCare, the Republican Party will continue to violate Americans right to religious freedom.
Furthermore, it is possible that Boehner and Cantor have already made a deal with Obama to make no amendments to the joint resolution to fund the government for the remaining fiscal year. If this is true, the Republican Party has just pulled its own teeth by funding ObamaCare, therefore they put the Republican seal of approval on it.
Many on Capitol Hill are scratching your heads wondering why the Republican Party seems to be caving so easily, News.Yahoo reported that the House Republicans unveiled a stopgap measure today to fund the federal government through the rest of the fiscal year, a move intended to mollify a deeply divided Congress that has fought through three years of bruising budget battles.
The continuing resolution, known around Washington as a CR, is subject to sequestration levels in its entirety, setting the top-line overall rate of spending at $982 billion, down from $1.047 trillion the previous fiscal year.
The CR keeps the FY2012 spending level as a base for 10 out of 12 appropriations bills, but notably, the legislation includes a full-year Defense appropriations bill, as well as a full-year Military Construction/Veterans Affairs appropriations bill. These two measures, which are still subject to sequestration, were negotiated with broad bipartisan support even though they did not become law during the last session of Congress.
Despite an impasse over sequestration last week, House Speaker John Boehner emerged from a meeting with President Obama and other congressional leaders Friday, assuring reporters that a government shutdown is not in the cards.
“The House is going to move a continuing resolution next week to fund the government past March 27, and I’m hopeful that we won’t have to deal with the threat of a government shutdown while we’re dealing with the sequester at the same time,” Boehner, R-Ohio, said. The bill is expected to be on the floor for debate on Wednesday and a vote on Thursday.
The Tea Party is taking quite a different view. In an open public social network discussion many of the Tea Party members are very angry and disappointed with their representatives. Many Tea Party members feel this is once again another cave-in on the Republican platform.
“There must be a moment that will wake up America to the spending intoxication of Washington. The Tea Party is hoping this is the moment we’ve been waiting for. We wish the best for America, but until spending becomes sane America will have no future.” Steve Eichler – CEO Tea Party/TeaParty.org
It appears the Republicans have taken more than just a sip of the global communist Kool-Aid and are willing to do anything, say anything or act anyway for the greater good of America, but in reality the greater good will destroy us all.
