Is the House About to Give In on Obamacare?
October 10, 2013 - 8:31 am
Erick Erickson says yes.
I’m being told by several sources that Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor are plotting to give up trying to either defund or delay Obamacare.
This comes at the same time the Obama administration admits it will be months before their Obamacare website will be fixed and Kathleen Sebelius is saying if people want out of the mandate they can pay a fine.
Nonetheless, Cantor, Boehner, and with them Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are expected to cave in and fully fund, unimpeded, Obamacare.
Erickson says that giving in now will pave the way for a third party.
That’s only true if Republican voters don’t pull our heads out of our behinds.
The Republicans still have the opportunity to get Obamacare destroyed and restore freedom to individuals, businesses and states. That’s the goal, right?
The defund strategy has done one thing right and one thing wrong. On the right side, it has focused some attention on Obamacare during its first week. Obamacare didn’t get the chance to soft launch. It had to launch in full public view, thanks to the defund strategy, and its rollout has been a gigantic, expensive mess.
