“Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said conservative Republican attempts to defund Obamacare will prove fruitless.”
“‘In the United States Senate, we will not repeal or defund Obamacare. We will not. And to think we can is not rational,’” McCain said Thursday on “The Lead with Jake Tapper.”
Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz suggested he might filibuster if defunding Obamacare is not tied to funding the government. But McCain said the party does not have 67 Republican votes in the Senate which would be required to override a presidential veto. [Note to Senator McLame: It only takes 60 votes to filibuster a law in the Senate. Do I need to explain this more slowly for you?]
“To somehow think we are going to defund it is simply not going to happen at this time, and it will, in my opinion, as it did before, harm the American people’s view of the Republican party,” said McCain.’
If McLame hadn’t run the worst presidential campaign in recent history, Obama would not have gotten a congressional super-majority, and we wouldn’t have Obamacare!
Why did voters in Arizona reelect this clown?
Thanks to John McLame, for flushing the USA down the toilet!
“A source in Congress tells Breitbart News that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn are using their leadership positions to pressure other Republicans to oppose Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in his campaign to defund Obamacare.”
“‘Right now in the Senate, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are actively whipping Senators to shut down debate on the House continuing resolution so that Harry Reid can gut it with just 51 votes,” a senior congressional staffer with intimate knowledge of the situation said in an email to Breitbart News. “Unbelievably, they actually are leading the fight to fully fund Obamacare.’”
The vast majority of Americans oppose Obamacare., The OVERWHELING majority of Republicans have told Congress that they don’t want Obamacare. And here are McConnell and Cornyn, pushing hard to fund Obamacare (while saying they oppose the legislation).
What a bunch of LIARS!!!!
Why would ANYONE vote for the Republican Party?!
“After extending health care coverage to many of its part-time employees for years, Trader Joe’s has told workers who log fewer than 30 hours a week that they will need to find insurance on the Obamacare exchanges next year, according to a confidential memo from the grocer’s chief executive.”
. . .l .
“Trader Joe’s has won kudos for offering its health care, dental and vision plans to part-time workers at a reasonable price — a rarity in an industry known for low pay and scant benefits. But with low-wage workers eligible for tax subsidies to buy health insurance next year, the company has apparently calculated that offering medical coverage to part-timers who work 18 hours or more is no longer worth the cost.”
