Fresh off their devastating collapse on the government shutdown and Debt Ceiling debacles, Republicans seem to signaling – already – they’ll whiff again when those burning issues are up to bat in January.

Senate Minority “Leader” Mitch McConnell just made a very public promise that he will not allow the government to be shuttered again over budget issues.  Now we know why he’s the minority “leader”.  Minority Yes; leader NO.

McConnell’s early capitulation must be pure rap music to Obama’s ears.  It must be making Democrat hearts all aflutter.  The media must be swooning at the prospect of Obama winning another round of increased spending and higher debt.  And this time it’s happening without a struggle or whimper or resistance.  Now Obama and Democrats don’t even have to consider spending reforms of any kind because Republican “leaders” promised no shutdown.  Why would Obama have to negotiate or curb his big spending when his unprincipled opposition has already promised to not fight back?  He doesn’t and he won’t.

McConnell’s early surrender is like a poker player showing his hole cards to opponents.  It’s like a quarterback signaling his play to opposing linebackers before the snap.  It’s like Tiger Woods quitting a golf tournament just because he bogied the first hole.  Imagine Eisenhower sending his D Day plans to Hitler.  “Dear Mr. Hitler sir, I’ll be sending all my troops to those pretty Normandy beaches on June 6.  The weather is grand this time of year.  Have a nice day.”

Some advice for Boehner and McConnell: If you submit a Budget in January and the President or Prince Harry say they won’t negotiate again, just say “OK, no problem. Call us when you’re ready.”  Then go play golf and get a tan.  But please stop pleading and weeping and begging for a “conversation”.  The House has the “Power of the Purse” so act like you’ve got a pair.  When the government wheels start grinding to a halt again, they’ll call.  

McConnell has squandered what little leverage Conservatives (or Republicans) ever had to stem this nation’s fiscal decline.  What methods are now available to Conservatives to curb any spending?  How will Conservatives like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee staunch the foul tide of ObamaCare from sloshing over America’s economy now?  Sadly, they can do precious little thanks to “leaders” like McConnell and McCain.

The Conservative Party will remain steadfast in its principles of fiscal responsibility and mission to delete ObamaCare from the body politic.  If a short-term government slim down happens as a result..then so be it.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
