You want to know if the Liberals are Scared of the New House? All those "Teabaggers" in there. Senator Reid sent the New Speaker of the House, Senator John Boehner (R - OH). He said "Do not attempt to repeal Obamacare. Don't you even dare. It's a waste of time. It will not work. We will NEVER Vote for it in the Senate."
Well, Speaker Boehner sent a message back. Basically he said "Forget you. We are listening to the American People." According to The Hill.com - Boehner fires back at Dem senators with vow to push forward with repeal By Michael O'Brien - 01/04/11 02:27 PM ET
Incoming House Speaker John Boehner's office (R-Ohio) pointedly vowed on Tuesday to push ahead with legislation repealing healthcare reform.I hope so. I do truly hope so. Repeal, repeal, repeal. Do it over and over again. Let the Liberals Block it. Let Obama Veto it. But DO it.
Boehner's office responded to a letter sent by the Senate's top five Democrats, vowing to block a House bill repealing healthcare reform, with a terse, 65-word note.
Boehner's office wrote:
Senators Reid, Durbin, Schumer, Murray and Stabenow:
Thank you for reminding us – and the American people – of the backroom deal that you struck behind closed doors with ‘Big Pharma,’ resulting in bigger profits for the drug companies, and higher prescription drug costs for 33 million seniors enrolled in Medicare Part D, at a cost to the taxpayers of $42.6 billion.
The House is going to pass legislation to repeal that now. You’re welcome.
- Speaker-Designate John Boehner’s Press Office
The note comes in response to a letter released on Monday by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) office, in which the Democrats promise to block a bill repealing benefits within the healthcare law.
Boehner's response is a sign that the incoming GOP House has little interest in backing off their promise to repeal (or at least chip away) at the healthcare bill.
It's also indicative of what could be a series of battles between the Republican-held House and the Democratic-controlled Senate over the next two years.
You know what they are really afraid of? The Republicans, the "Teabaggers" control the purse strings. They can decide to fund or DE-fund anything they want. If they can't get passed or repealed that of which they want, they can play dirty. You know, just like the Liberal Loons. They can simply cut off all funding to it. Rendering it dead.
Do you remember how nasty and arrogant the Liberal Loons have been since 2006? They hyped it into overdrive in 2008. Now they are afraid it's "coming home to roost." I sure HOPE SO! I sure hope that the Republicans ARE as Arrogant and condensation to the Liberals as they were to the People. Because to them, listing to the People IS offensive and stupid. The PEOPLE are stupid, and in their mind, the PEOPLE need to be controlled. To them, Freedom is the Arrogance of the Ignorant. A Free People have no need of a Master. Keep it up Speaker John Boehner. And to those TEA PARTY Conservatives, stay strong, committed, and Right. We ARE with you. Make us proud.
