Panicked Pelosi runs from Obamacare: ‘First of all, it’s called the Affordable Care Act’

Notice how they no longer call this train wreck the Patient

Protection and affordable Care Act.

 

 

Panicked Democratic incumbents facing midterm elections this year are trying so hard to distance themselves from all things Obama, U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi won’t even refer to the healthcare law as “Obamacare” any longer.

It’s come full circle fromDemocrats deridingRepublicans for calling theAffordable Care Act“Obamacare,” to a full embracing of the term once Obama got onboard, to now shunning the name again as the president’s poll number plummet and anti-Obamacare sentiment sweeps the nation.

“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi corrected a reporter Thursday who called Democrats’ health care law ‘Obamacare,’” the Washington Times reported.

According to the Times:

Democrats, who just a couple of years ago were happy to call President Obama’s signature achievement Obamacare, now are bristling at the name and have tried to remove it from the political lexicon. The change comes as the law’s rollout has been rocky, leaving Americans sour.

On Thursday, at her weekly press conference, Mrs. Pelosi was asked by a reporter whether Democrats would vote with Republicans to impose new privacy safeguards in health care, and if so, whether that would be a signal Democrats are worried about the politics of the law.

“Absolutely not,” Mrs. Pelosi said. “First of all, it’s called the ‘Affordable Care Act.’ If that’s what you’re referencing, yeah, they are going after the Affordable Care Act.”

Obamacare & The Negative Economic Impact On Women

Leave a comment

This is from the Liberty Alliance.

The DemocRats say it is the GOP that has declared war on women.

The DemocRats say the GOP policies harm women economically.

I say the DemocRats  are full of crap.

American women, no matter which political party they belong to, will feel the ‘economic pain’ from Obamacare in many areas of life for both themselves and their families in 2014 and 2015. There will be talking around the kitchen table as President Obama and Democrats want, but it will not be about how to sign up for Obamacare. The conversation will be about the choices women will have to make to keep their standard of living and how to figure out what healthcare issues are the most important.

Why?

The roll out of effects of Obamacare are still to coming for women that work in corporate American with the open enrollment systems beginning next fall. Millions and millions of women could be left out in the cold getting sick without proper healthcare coverage. What surprises could there be for American Women?

How will I pay for higher medical premium for myself?

How will I pay a higher premium for family coverage?

Why can’t I receive medical treatment from my current doctors?

Why have my medical benefits changed from last year?

Why have my deductibles been raised?

There are so many variables that even the government agencies and politicians that are dealing with regulating the American health care industry don’t have a clue what is going on. It is important to note that there are many government agencies (dozens) that regulate healthcare system (more than nuclear energy) that required with all of these regulatory agencies for the American Health Care Industry.

Why now?

Words of wisdom from Charlie Daniels.

 

In my 77 years of experience on earth, I have never seen the scarcity of capable leadership as critical as it is today.

When someone speaks of leadership, most people’s minds go immediately to politics and there’s no doubt that the lack of qualified leaders reaches into the very top echelons of government, but the problem extends deeply into the social, moral and business world as well.

One of the greatest causes for the multiple divisions in America can be traced to lack of leadership. Social upheaval, gigantic bankruptcies leading to government bailouts, the slow demise of unions, the lax moral attitudes of many of the younger generation can be traced directly to lack of sensible, responsible leadership.

Politicians pandering to voting blocks, business leaders taking reckless chances with stockholder’s money, union officials making demands a company cannot meet and rabble rousing racial leaders who preach dependence rather than self reliance.

One of the prime roles of a leader is to appoint or hire personnel capable of handling autonomy, those with the savvy and common sense to know how far to go without asking the advice of their superiors and how far not to go on their own.

I have been in business for over thirty years and responsible for the payroll and the bills but the only job I can do adequately is entertain, so I do that and leave the day to day running of the business in the capable hands of a small cadre of folks I trust implicitly, knowing that if they reach the point of making a decision that is outside their authority to make, they will run it past me before moving on.

Being surrounded by competent, dependable and trustworthy employees is perhaps the most vital part of leadership and retaining and respecting those people is essential to having a successful business.

There are no unimportant jobs in the CDB. There are times when the drivers have the most important jobs in the whole outfit as they drive the buses and truck through the midnight hours with everybody else’s lives in their hands.

Personally, I have no problem relinquishing authority to employees to give them the latitude to do their jobs, but I think in many cases leaders develop a bad case of megalomania and try to make all decisions on all levels themselves. Then there are those who take little or no responsibility at all and things fall apart with no input from the top.

Racial leaders who blame all their problems on outside influences are actually expounding the theory that their race cannot accomplish anything on their own and have to have help from an outside source. When they really should be blasting gangs, unwed teenage pregnancy, drugs, absentee fathers and violence and energetically promoting self-reliance, education and work ethic.

Many of the churches in America have turned into little more than social clubs as liberalized ministers forsake the teachings of the Bible for a more socially acceptable message with few absolutes and a lot of gray areas.

Union leaders trying to maintain their power, promise their membership the moon and try to saddle companies and governments with unreasonable concessions, causing companies to move out of the country and state and city governments finally go bankrupt and the membership loses much of the pensions they depended on to fund their retirements.

I don’t need to go into the vacuum of leadership on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue; just mentioning Fast and Furious, Obamacare, IRS, NSA and Benghazi says it better than I ever could.

And lastly, but most important of all, parents have abdicated their responsibilities, allowing young children to watch trash on TV, not emphasizing the importance of education and work ethic, accepting the loose morality of the street and a thousand other things in the day to day life of their children that determine what kind of people they will turn out to be.

Man is meant to be under authority with our Creator at the pinnacle and capable and dedicated mortals up and down the chain of command leading by example.

Somewhere along the way our compass got out of kilter; we need some outstanding leaders to right the ship.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

President Obama’s Top 10 Constitutional Violations Of 2013

Leave a comment

This is from the Independent Journal Review.

This is just the top ten.

 

Guest post by Ilya Shapiro, senior fellow in constitutional studies at the Cato Institute and editor-in-chief of the Cato Supreme Court Review.

One of Barack Obama’s chief accomplishments has been to return the Constitution to a central place in our public discourse.

Unfortunately, the president fomented this upswing in civic interest not by talking up the constitutional aspects of his policy agenda, but by blatantly violating the strictures of our founding document. And he’s been most frustrated with the separation of powers, which doesn’t allow him to “fundamentally transform” the country without congressional acquiescence.

But that hasn’t stopped him. In its first term, the Administration launched a “We Can’t Wait” initiative, with senior aide Dan Pfeiffer explaining that “when Congress won’t act, this president will.” And earlier this year, President Obama said in announcing his new economic plans that “I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way.”

And so, as we reach the end of another year of political strife that’s fundamentally based on clashing views on the role of government in society, I thought I’d update a list I made two years ago and hereby present President Obama’s top 10 constitutional violations of 2013.

1. Delay of Obamacare’s out-of-pocket caps.

The Labor Department announced in February that it was delaying for a year the part of the healthcare law that limits how much people have to spend on their own insurance. This may have been sensible—insurers and employers need time to comply with rapidly changing regulations—but changing the law requires actual legislation.

2. Delay of Obamacare’s employer mandate.

The administration announced via blogpost on the eve of the July 4 holiday that it was delaying the requirement that employers of at least 50 people provide complying insurance or pay a fine. This time it did cite statutory authority, but the cited provisions allow the delay of certain reporting requirements, not of the mandate itself.

3. Delay of Obamacare’s insurance requirements.

The famous pledge that “if you like your plan, you can keep it” backfired when insurance companies started cancelling millions of plans that didn’t comply with Obamacare’s requirements. President Obama called a press conference last month to proclaim that people could continue buying non-complying plans in 2014—despite Obamacare’s explicit language to the contrary. He then refused

4. Exemption of Congress from Obamacare.

A little-known part of Obamacare requires Congressmen and their staff to get insurance through the new healthcare exchanges, rather than a taxpayer-funded program. In the quiet of August, President Obama directed the Office of Personnel Management to interpret the law to maintain the generous congressional benefits.

5. Expansion of the employer mandate penalty through IRS regulation.

Obamacare grants tax credits to people whose employers don’t provide coverage if they buy a plan “through an Exchange established by the State”—and then fines employers for each employee receiving such a subsidy. No tax credits are authorized for residents of states where the exchanges are established by the federal government, as an incentive for states to create exchanges themselves. Because so few (16) states did, however, the IRS issued a rule ignoring that plain text and allowed subsidies (and commensurate fines) for plans coming from “a State Exchange, regional Exchange, subsidiary Exchange, and federally-facilitated Exchange.”

6. Political profiling by the IRS.

After seeing a rise in the number of applications for tax-exempt status, the IRS in 2010 compiled a “be on the lookout” (“BOLO”) list to identify organizations engaged in political activities. The list included words such as “Tea Party,” “Patriots,” and “Israel”; subjects such as government spending, debt, or taxes; and activities such as criticizing the government, educating about the Constitution, or challenging Obamacare. The targeting continued through May of this year.

7. Outlandish Supreme Court arguments.

Between January 2012 and June 2013, the Supreme Court unanimously rejected the Justice Department’s extreme positions 9 times. The cases ranged from criminal procedure to property rights, religious liberty to immigration, securities regulation to tax law. They had nothing in common other than the government’s view that federal power is virtually unlimited. As a comparison, in the entire Bush and Clinton presidencies, the government suffered 15 and 23 unanimous rulings, respectively.

8. Recess appointments.

Last year, President Obama appointed three members of the National Labor Relations Board, as well as the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, during what he considered to be a Senate recess. But the Senate was still holding “pro forma” sessions every three days—a technique developed by Sen. Harry Reid to thwart Bush recess appointments. (Meanwhile, the Dodd-Frank Act, which created the CFPB, provides that authority remains with the Treasury Secretary until a director is “confirmed by the Senate.”) In January, the D.C. Circuit held the NLRB appointments to be unconstitutional, which ruling White House spokesman Jay Carney said only applied to “one court, one case, one company.”

9. Assault on free speech and due process on college campuses.

Responding to complaints about the University of Montana’s handling of sexual assault claims, the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, in conjunction with the Justice Department, sent the university a letter intended as a national “blueprint” for tackling sexual harassment. The letter urges a crackdown on “unwelcome” speech and requires complaints to be heard in quasi-judicial procedures that deny legal representation, encourage punishment before trial, and convict based on a mere “more likely than not” standard.

10. Mini-DREAM Act.

Congress has shamelessly failed to pass any sort of immigration reform, including for the most sympathetic victims of the current non-system, young people who were brought into the country illegally as children. Nonetheless, President Obama, contradicting his own previous statements claiming to lack authority, directed the Department of Homeland Security to issue work and residence permits to the so-called Dreamers. The executive branch undoubtedly has discretion regarding enforcement priorities, but granting de facto green cards goes beyond a decision to defer deportation in certain cases.

President-Obama-takes-the-oath-of-office_1_1It was hard to limit myself to 10 items, of course—Obamacare alone could’ve filled many such lists—but these, in my judgment, represent the chief executive’s biggest dereliction this year of his duty to “preserve, protect, and defend” the Constitution, and to “take care that the law be faithfully executed.”

Alas, things may get worse before they get better. New presidential “counselor” John Podesta’s belief in governance by fiat is no secret; in a 2010 report, he wrote that focusing on executive power “presents a real opportunity for the Obama administration to turn its focus away from a divided Congress and the unappetizing process of making legislative sausage.”

Happy New Year!

Stand with President Obama and protect Obamacare! Contribute here.

Friend — In his final press conference of 2013, President Obama shared the positive news that “more than half a million Americans have enrolled through [the Obamacare website] in the first three weeks of December alone.”

On New Year’s Day, millions of Americans will have new, affordable health coverage because of Obamacare. But despite this, unrelenting attacks from the GOP — including $4.1 million alone from the Koch brothers — have taken a drastic toll on public support for health care reform.

Rachel Maddow reports that as Obamacare starts to succeed, it will become a political liability for Republicans. But the opposite is true as well — that’s why they’ve put everything they have into destroying it now. Bottom line: if we can’t respond to the GOP’s anti-Obamacare attacks, it could lead to a wave election where Republicans take over the Senate.

That’s why Democrats need to unite behind President Obama right now and respond before the year ends. In the next 96 hours, we need to raise $250,000 for our Obamacare Rapid Response Fund so we can respond to these anti-Obamacare attacks with facts and protect our Democratic majority.

Top five O-Care controversies

1 Comment

This is from The Hill.

These are some of the biggies concerning Obamacare.

 

The Obama administration faced an extraordinarily tough year when it came to Affordable Care Act’s rollout and the surrounding debate. Between missed deadlines, botched projects and massive PR stumbles, the White House spent months trying to recover momentum for its signature domestic achievement.

Below are the healthcare law’s top controversies in 2013:

1) Canceled health plans

One of President Obama’s key promises — that under ObamaCare, you could keep your health plan if you like it — was turned on its head this fall when millions of people received cancellation notices from their insurance companies. The wave created a political firestorm for the White House as Republicans hammered Obama on his promise, which had also been echoed by many Democrats on Capitol Hill. The assurance was eventually labeled “Lie of the Year” by Politifact, a fact-checking organization with ties to the Tampa Bay Times.

The controversy took an unexpected turn in mid-November when former President Bill Clinton urged Obama to “honor the commitment,” even if it meant a policy fix that would alter the Affordable Care Act’s rollout. Days later, Obama announced that insurance companies could continue offering plans that would have been canceled under ObamaCare to their existing holders for an additional year.

The cancellation “fix” has had mixed results. Obama’s announcement prompted an immediate backlash from health insurers loathe to accept blame for canceled plans. Several states have said they will not accept late renewals, arguing that plans that do not comply with ObamaCare are substandard. And the House passed legislation for a broader “fix” that received support from 39 Democrats.

While the criticism has quieted, plan cancellations are expected to be a major theme in next year’s midterm elections. Republicans are eager to blame vulnerable Democrats for vowing that consumers could keep their coverage and frame the issue as part of a wider narrative of dysfunction surrounding ObamaCare’s rollout. Democrats will try to argue that the law extends help to many people whose plans have been canceled, and that any GOP healthcare plan would also disrupt individuals’ coverage, but it remains to be seen how much these arguments will help.

2) HealthCare.gov

ObamaCare’s federal enrollment website was supposed to be the easy part of the law’s rollout. During its construction, the system was repeatedly compared to sites like Travelocity and Match.com, where millions of users can simultaneously navigate a complex, individualized shopping experience. But trouble was apparent on the morning of the launch, as users faced delays and glitchy code. The vast and persistent problems with HealthCare.gov created months of negative news for the White House and thwarted millions of users hoping to purchase health insurance.

The site has improved after hundreds of fixes to revamp the user experience and increase capacity. Criticism has quieted, and the administration has sought to relieve deadline pressure on consumers who faced technical problems with the system. Yet some issues are still lingering, including back-end glitches that have generated flawed transmissions from HealthCare.gov to insurance companies. The administration also flubbed other online enrollment systems, launching the Spanish-language site months late and delaying web-based sign-ups for small businesses by one year.

3) Employer mandate delay

The Obama administration took everyone by surprise in July by announcing that larger employers would not be required to offer health insurance to their workers until 2015. The decision came in reaction to pressure from the business community, which had sought more time to build the technical systems required to comply with the “employer mandate.” Republicans immediately pounced on the move as a double-standard, since consumers will still be required to comply with the individual mandate to carry health insurance starting in 2014.

4) Government shutdown fight

The federal government shut down on Oct. 1 over a fiscal stalemate that was defined by Republicans’ opposition to ObamaCare. The House GOP made three government-funding offers as the shutdown loomed in late September, each attacking the healthcare law in a different way. (One would have defunded the law, one would have delayed it for one year, and one would have delayed the individual mandate for one year.) Senate Democrats and the White House firmly rejected each bill, and vulnerable Dems in the upper chamber failed to rally around the GOP position as some conservatives had hoped. The shutdown saw Republicans’ poll numbers drop, even as ObamaCare’s new insurance exchanges began facing massive technical problems on Oct. 1. The final deal to reopen the government did virtually nothing to alter the healthcare law.

5) Congressional subsidies

The month of January will see lawmakers and most staffers enter ObamaCare’s new insurance exchanges, but this shift did not come without controversy. The first firestorm came in the summer when the administration ruled that members and aides can continue receiving a generous employer healthcare subsidy despite moving out of the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plan. Many people had expressed concerns that Capitol Hill workers would depart to the private sector if made to pay the entire cost of their healthcare coverage like those in the individual market. President Obama reportedly told lawmakers he was personally involved in preventing this outcome.

The decision to extend subsidies to members and staff was widely criticized on the right, and it prompted Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) to propose legislation that would stop the contributions from going forward. Vitter’s bills became part of several distinct conflicts throughout the fall, including debate over raising the debt ceiling in October.

Conflict reared its head again when news broke that lawmakers could keep their aides off of the exchanges by deeming them “official staff” instead of “official office.” Some pro-ObamaCare offices later regretted choices to shift workers on the exchanges, citing higher costs for older staffers. Aides also encountered problems enrolling in the District of Columbia’s new marketplace, and received notices to confirm their sign-ups in person rather than online.

After unveiling the two-year budget deal which retains a fully-funded ObamaCare, increases spending, raises taxes and continues down the same unsustainable fiscal trajectory, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan had this to say in his defense: “To get true budget reform, Republicans are going to have to win some more elections..”

Ahem. I beg to differ, Mr. Chairman: To get true anything – a bunch of you Republicans must be removed from office and replaced with actual conservatives willing to do what Americans sent you to Washington to do: Stop the insanity.

.. By the way, 2010 called – they want their campaign promises back.

Before I continue, I must say to Paul Ryan how dare you state that in this budget deal there aren’t any taxes – there are only “fees.” What kind of frickin’ idiots do you think put you in office? Take your paws off my wallet, stick your double-speak and get off my television – it’s reserved for vapid Democrats who lie through their teeth about stealing my money and breastfeeding that ever-growing government hog.

The job of the average Congressman used to be to go to Washington, spend a long time building alliances, trading favors, exchanging votes and extracting as much taxpayer largesse as legally possible and bring it back to their respective districts. That is no longer the case. The job now is to go there and stop it. Your charge, Paul Ryan, was to gather like-minded, true conservatives and turn off the giant pig-feeding spigot.

In 2010, after seeing what Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and then Barack Obama cooked up together, it was the Tea Party who dropped everything and gave you the power of the purse. We breathed a sigh of relief, knowing you would defund ObamaCare, stop the disastrous path the leftists had put us on and restore our belief in the Republican Party after the profligate spending by those drunken sailors under George W. Bush.

In a nutshell – we trusted you! I know you’re exempt from ObamaCare but did you not notice the rest of the country is a wee bit upset that it’s still being implemented? Aren’t you the numbers guy, Chairman Ryan? Certainly, you know in the past few years the income of non-government employees has decreased 6% while the income of government employees has risen 21%, correct?

You want ObamaCare to keep failing so you can run against it – I get it. You guys are in awe of the money Obama and the libs have spent and you want to be in power and get your trillions to your peeps, but there’s a problem: When ObamaCare implodes – and it will, by design – in its place will be a bailed-out, single-payer, massive government entitlement and we are going to blame the Republicans we put in there to stop it, sir. That’s you, friend.

I’m thrilled you have a rock-solid issue like ObamaCare to run against, but what about us? What about millions of people who are having their lives turned upside-down by this onerous government takeover of our healthcare system? Is it worth putting the American people through this just so Republicans can maybe take back the Senate and have a long-shot at winning the White House in 2016? Who knows better than you, Mr. Chairman that losing to Barack Obama in 2012 was the single biggest whiff at a T-ball in the nation’s history? 8% unemployment, gas prices doubled, debt doubled, lies and scandals, incompetence and every level and you can’t win?

I’m supposed to suffer through ObamaCare, and then get stuck in a single-payer piece of crap system with death panels and no doctors, just so your Party can have another shot in 2016? No thanks, kiddo – I’m vapor. I don’t trust you further than I could throw you, and I could probably throw you five or six feet. Not sure what that means, but you get my drift – I want real conservatives in office who care about me – not the Party.

ObamaCare is here. Thanks Republicans. Now, let’s talk about that amnesty! You bet it’s next on the hit list for 2014, complete with those requirements for undocumented Democrat voters to “get in back of the line, pay a fine, pay back taxes, learn English, blab la blbabla blab labl b lal blabla bla b…” We can’t even teach American kids to speak English.. You think after an illegal is legalized they’ll be deported for not learning English? We don’t deport illegals who commit felonies! Where have you been? Oh yeah, Washington… slipped my mind.

Nobody saw 2010 coming and it’s pretty obvious you don’t see 2014 either.

Real conservatives will get elected everywhere, every time, to stop this Obama Marxist slide our country is in and if they turn like so many Republicans have – into Democrat enablers – there’s a line out the door ready to primary your asses right back to wherever, USA. I heard Mark Levin tell Paul Ryan he thought the budget deal was “Mickey Mouse” but on further review, it’s more like Goofy.

5 Things Obamacare Teaches You About Liberals

1 Comment

This is from Town Hall.

Enough said.

 

1) It’s inherently dishonest: In many ways, Obamacare is a typical liberal program. Unfortunately for Barack Obama, there are two key differences. The first is that the Affordable Care Act was implemented on a short enough timetable for people to remember the promises that were made about it. Furthermore, because it is such an enormous program, it impacts a lot more lives. Otherwise, it’s a standard liberal program that makes promises it never intends to keep and does more damage than good. Liberal programs usually have huge, yet very predictable downsides that are systematically hidden, ignored and downplayed because liberal ideas can’t survive an educated, honest debate about whether they work or not.

2) Results are irrelevant: Barack Obama promised that if you like your insurance, you can keep it. He said the same thing about your doctor. He claimed Obamacare would REDUCE the cost of health care, save the average person money and provide universal coverage. Not only are all of those promises untrue, it’s hard to miss the fact that no one on the Left SEEMS TO CARE. That’s because whether Obamacare actually works or not is secondary to left-wing goals like centralizing government power, gaining more control over the American people and making liberals feel good about themselves. This is the rule, not the exception when it comes to liberals. Put another way, whether a liberal supports a program doesn’t have anything to do with whether it works or not.

3) It penalizes success: Contrary to what you’d believe if you listen to the Left,85% of Americans were perfectly happy with their insurance before the Affordable Care Act came along. Yet because of Obamacare, tens of millions of those people are going to lose their health insurance and most of them will pay more. In other words, our health care system was working just fine for the vast majority of Americans until Barack Obama took a wrecking ball to it. So, in order to help a relatively small number of people, liberals are perfectly willing to penalize Americans — who worked hard, played by the rules and took care of themselves — with much higher costs and lost plans. This is standard operating procedure for liberals who act as if doing well enough to live your life free of welfare, food stamps and government nannies is “cheating.”

4) It doesn’t work: A hammer is a good tool to use for pounding nails. It’s not such a great tool to use in place of a screwdriver, saw or wrench. Government can be a good tool as well when it’s used for the limited purposes for which it’s designed — such as putting up street signs, building roads and forming a military to protect us from other nations. The problem with liberals is that they want to use their government hammer for every task imaginable instead of letting the free market provide the right tool for the job. You think a billing dispute with an insurance company is unpleasant? Wait until you’re hashing it out with the IRS. You don’t like to deal with your insurance company? Wait until you have a problem with your insurance and can’t get it corrected until you get approval from a government agent. Our government is slow, stupid, arrogant and generally unfriendly to consumers. The more government you have in your life, the more unpleasant your life is likely to be.

5) There are no trade-offs: Liberals seem to be incapable of mentally comprehending trade-offs. So instead, they present Utopian visions of how life would look in a perfect world and offer that up as a political alternative to the messy, oftentimes unpleasant reality we live in. It would be fantastic if Santa Claus, Star Trek replicators, and genies were real, but when you seek heaven on earth, you’re more likely to start wandering towards hell.

Rush Limbaugh on Monday speculated that the “Republican establishment may in fact be so desirous of getting rid of the Tea Party as its base, they may be willing to lose some elections in order to get rid of their base and put up a new base.”

The conservative radio host also referenced a story on the Drudge Report indicating that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is claiming that House Majority Leader John Boehner told her to wait next year for immigration reform.

Limbaugh when on to air comments made by Boehner seemingly referring to conservative lawmakers like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

“Frankly, I think they’re misleading their followers. I think they’re pushing our members to places that they don’t want to be. And frankly, I just think that they’ve lost all credibility. You know, they’ve pushed us into this fight to defund Obamacare and to shut down the government,” Boehner said on Sunday.

Now, Limbaugh explained, the GOP establishment is “livid that Ted Cruz and his gang engineered, with public support, what happened in the government shutdown.”
