Moderate Republicans Are Revolting Against The Push To Defund Obamacare

Source: Business Insider

This evening, House Speaker John Boehner (R) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R) are making their third attempt to get Obamacare changes in exchange for passing a continuing resolution to keep the government open. 

They're getting some opposition from the right, including the Senate Conservatives Fund and Heritage Action, which don't like the fact that the new plan wouldn't defund Obamacare entirely. 

But what's new is that Republican moderates are threatening to vote against leadership's plan because they do not want to have this fight over Obamacare. And those moderates may have enough votes to block the plan from passing. 

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) has declared his intention to vote against the rule bringing tonight's amendments to the floor. King spokesman Kevin Fogarty told Business Insider he has 25 other moderate Republicans with him against any further defund-Obamacare push on this continuing resolution. 

Especially since some conservative members are likely to vote against the CR from the right, that spells big trouble for Boehner's plan. Fogarty told Business Insider that Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), two of the House's most hardline conservatives, were not among the count of 20-25 moderates. Both plan to vote "no" on the amendment.

I guess I am wondering is it really the cost of healthcare, because that has been skyrocketing for years and years, that they disagree with?  Is it being forced to take personal responsibility?  Is it Obama saying it that makes it wrong?  How can you be for something now be against it?  I would like to know how it is socialist and not god ol' capitalism at its finest?  Seems even the Republicans can't agree to disagree?

Gee, wasn't THAT helpful?  Why do you progs try so hard to so offensive?  Isn't the shutdown looming indicative of what happens when you deliberately try to be offensive?

How was hers not offensive? Hmmm... if they don't follow the Tea Party's every mandate they're somehow French? I just played the same game she did. Why is moderation seen as such a bad thing?

You were offended by the term French Republican? 

got it. 

Still, that is so far from a blanket offensive line like "republicans are revolting"

Unless, of course, you meant revolting in a different way than I took it...  but still, there is a huge difference.  And what's with the "she did it, so I can too!!"?  Are we grown ups, or 5 yo's?

Maybe they are listening to all the petitions, letters and phone calls that many American's have sent in.

Even some Dems don't agree with Obamacare anymore.

you need a special kind of help.  We all know what you are trying to do.  You like to  race bait and cause trouble, but all you are succeeding in doing is making yourself look like a fool and a racists.  You really need to grow up and be an adult.  I know kids that act better than you do, you should know better shame you don't:/
