A growing group of congressional Republicans is pushing leaders to defund ObamaCare in the next government spending bill, setting the stage for a showdown in September, when the current continuing resolution expires. 

Twelve Senate Republicans sent a letter Thursday to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) declaring they would not support a government funding bill unless it excludes funds for the healthcare law. 

And 66 House Republicans, more than one quarter of the conference, have signed on to a similar letter from Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) urging Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) not to allow votes on a government funding bill unless it chokes off money for the Affordable Care Act.

DEFUND OBAMACARE! AND OBAMA TOO!!!

And don't forget Moochie's extravagant vacations! She is the worst "first lady" (gag, gag, gag) ever to live in the White House. 

There are reports that President Lincolns wife went crazy spending like first lady Moochie is doing.

AMEN!!

I SECOND THE MOTION!!  ALL IN FAVOR, SAY "AYE" !!!!

AYE!

AYE x 10 to the 28th power!

Ms. Holland, I sure do love both of your IDEAS, OBAMA CARE and OBAMA that works for me. AYE!

Defund Oblamea right out the doors of the whitehouse duckwalking in chains!

Outstanding!!!!!

Boehner will wimp out and sign it no matter what is right or in our best interest, I am starting to think Boehner should go back to tending the bar!

He has his head shoved up Oblamma's rear end, aka ass!

The government can pay all its bill and not pay for Obamacare.  This should not cause the government to shut down unless someone just wants the make such a big issue of it that "they" casue the shutdown.

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘The Real Second Amendment Isn’t Absolute

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted Saturday there is a “real” Second Amendment and an “imaginary” one and he believes the real one is “not absolute.”

Murphy, “I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment. And the real 2nd Amendment isn’t absolute.”

The statement was a precursor to his call for banning “assault rifles” in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting, even though “assault rifles” were not used in the attack.

Murphy said the “real 2nd Amendment…allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said the Santa Fe High School attackers used a .38 revolver and a shotgun to carry out his heinous acts. Therefore, a ban on “assault rifles” would have done nothing to prevent the attack from occurring or the tragic loss of life from taking place.

It should be noted that Saturday was not the first time Sen. Murphy called the essence of the Second Amendment into question. On August 6, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Murphy told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

Murphy did not grapple with the words, “Shall not be infringed.”
