House Speaker John Boehner, in an abrupt turnaround, plans to let Tea Party lawmakers have a vote on de-funding ObamaCare as part of a politically risky strategy which Democrats warn could result in a government shutdown.
GOP leaders unveiled their plan to members on Wednesday morning, teeing up a vote for Friday — the proposed bill would tie the vote to de-fund the health care law to a vote on a stopgap spending bill. Current funding for the government is set to expire at the end of the month, and lawmakers must approve the stopgap bill in order to keep Washington open; conservatives see this as leverage to force a suspension of ObamaCare.
“The law’s a trainwreck,” Boehner said of the Affordable Care Act. “It’s time to protect American families from this unworkable law.”
Effectively, Boehner and his deputies have b
acked off a compromise approach they earlier tried to sell to rank-and-file conservatives. Under that plan, the House would have sent two bills to the Senate — one to de-fund ObamaCare, the other to fund the government. The Senate, then, would have been able to easily bypass the ObamaCare bill and send the spending measure straight to the White House, in turn averting a government shutdown.
But House conservatives revolted, and Boehner now plans to tie the two votes together. Under the plan, funding the government would be conditional on de-funding ObamaCare. It is a concession to House conservatives as well as senators like Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and outside groups like the Heritage Foundation that have demanded Congress use the must-pass budget bill as leverage to derail the health care law.
But it is also undoubtedly risky.
President Obama and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid h
ave warned Republicans not to go down that road, suggesting that they will bear the brunt of the blame if the gambit results in a government shutdown.
Obama blasted Republicans during an interview Tuesday with Telemundo.
“We’re hearing that a certain faction of Republicans, in the House of Representatives in particular are arguing for government shutdown or even a default for the United States of America … if they don’t get 100 percent of what they want,” Obama said.
On Wednesday in Washington, Obama suggested that Republicans have gotten distracted from their original goal of cutting deficits. “We have not seen this in the past, that a budget is contingent on us eliminating a program that was voted on, passed by both chambers of Congress,” Obama said.

Rhonda Deniston comments tonight on KUSI
Does anyone remember Barack Obama’s great promise of the campaign of 2012? He did not make a promise to America nor to Americans. He did not make a promise to fellow politicians.
Unlike so many of his promises, he is keeping this one.
His promise was to Vladimir Putin of Russia.
What is Obama doing to keep his promise to Putin?
Everyone remembers the hot mike incident in 2012 when Barack Obama pleaded with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev to give him time until the election. After the election, he promised Vladimir Putin, through Medvedev, he would be more “flexible.”
Now we have seen this flexibility.
Barack Obama is going to spend almost $700 million dollars of taxpayer money to buy Russian helicopters for the Afghan Air Force.
But wait. Just like those TV commercials, this gets better.
When Congress passed the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, it had an interesting provision. Congress included, as a part of that law a prohibition on the United States buying helicopters from Rosoboronexport, the Russian manufacturer of the Mi-17 helicopter.
Unfortunately as always happens, when such laws are passed, Congress always gives the Regime an escape hatch. The law stated that Obama could buy from Rosoboronexport if the Secretary of Defense certified it was in the interest of National Security.
And of course, the Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, a man committed to destroying the US military immediately signed off on that certification.
Where do we even start with this one?
Congress is outraged over this with Senators and Representatives from both parties writing letters about this. Of course, this is Congress’ fault for allowing a law to be written with such an escape hatch.
More importantly, Americans need to be asking just what the hell the Obama Regime is doing.
Why are we spending $700 million dollars with a Russian arms manufacturer? Why are we even giving the Afghans these helicopters?
If we are going to give them helicopters, which we really shouldn’t, then why not give them American made helicopters and put Americans to work?
Even if we are going to give the Afghans Russian helicopters, the ones we are giving them are an old Cold War design. There are hundreds of used MI-17 helicopters floating around the world. Why are we paying to give the Afghans brand new helicopters?
In the era of the Sequester, isn’t there something better we can do with $700 million? American Medicare cancer patients are being turned away from hospitals and are being denied life saving treatment because of budget cuts. The American military is being gutted to the point of ineffectiveness because of budget cuts.
Or consider this. The United States Air Force is grounding 17 squadrons because of $591 million dollars in budget cuts. Our Air Force is not able to do its mission because it lacks the money to fly but we have the money to give Afghanistan $700 million dollars in Russian helicopters.
And this is where Barack Obama thinks we should spend our money?
Most people reading this story will not have heard about it.
Because the Obama Propaganda Media is moving in lock step to make sure there is no bad news that might damage Obama’s presidency.
This is a story that should damage him and outrage every American.
Ask your Senator or Congressman why this outrage is being allowed and take a moment to share this story with your friends.
The only way we will ever stop Obama is if the American people know what he is doing.

San Diegans for Secure Borders Coalition
Updated: April 1, 2013
Spokesman: Rob Luton, Immigration Policy Analyst, 858-414-6229, firstname.lastname@example.org
Spokesman: Peter Nunez, Board Member, Center for Immigration Studies, 619-297-9957
San Diegans for Secure Borders is a diverse, non-partisan coalition of grass roots civic and activist groups in the San Diego area working hard to make our region a better and safer place to live, work, and thrive. We support strong border security along with our ports and coastline, as well as the full enforcement of our federal immigration laws to protect the U.S. and our citizens from foreign threats.
Mission: To push Congress to draft and pass true immigration reform that solves the illegal immigration problem, prevents future illegal immigration, and restores the integrity of our generous system of traditional, legal immigration. Legal immigrants who work hard and play by the rules deserve nothing less than a safe and secure America.
No amnesty. Secure our border and enforce our immigration laws first
A major push for amnesty here in San Diego is happening with big union support. As usual, the squeaky wheel gets the government Cheese
The Tea Party stands for Personal freedom, balanced budgets, National security, ETC.
The US citizens have been so lied to for so long now that they believe it would be heartless to seal our sovereign borders. Ron Reagan went along with an amnesty bill in the 80’s with the promise from congress it would put an end to it once and for all, but they lied!
Simply said; they got as far as they have by using your emotions against you. Obama is the master at using emotions and the “Straw-Man” argument to make you believe things that are not true.
Here are a few:
“They are only hard working people that want to pick your tomatoes”
“They are a valuable part of our fiscal society”
“We need all the tax money they pay”
I must say as a Chula Vista native for 45 years and someone who can see Mexico from my home, Most of my friends have been Spanish, who (in general) have a good family base. But when deciding what to do with 15+ million people in your country illegally, you put emotion aside and get the facts.
Here are the stone cold facts from fairus.org (Just in California)
Illegal aliens cost 22 Billion in calif. State and local costs, contribute 1.21 Billion in tax revenues
leaving a 20.6 Billion dollar burden on our system.
The breakdown (Just in California) is:
9.31 Billion for education
3.2 Billion for our justice system
2.9 Billion (General)
2.5 Billion in Medicaid
1.9 Billion English (LEP)
1.6 Billion for Welfare
434 million for Schip
Companies and people are leaving at record rates to avoid the massive taxes and regulations that are strangling our way of life here. Our State is BROKE and going down fast.
The thought of making 10’s of millions of people ready to take your place in the job market is so stupid that the only reason it would even be proposed would be for political gain.
Rush Limbaugh stated recently he would promise to campaign with La Raza on immigration in one condition: The new legal immigrants would not be able to vote for 10 years. Obama or the democratic congress hasn’t taken his offer because this entire charade is about creating millions of new democrats on the backs of “We The People”
Here is how most jobless Americans see it.
