    House blocks funding for health care law

    House blocks funding for health care law - On Politics: Covering the US Congress, Governors, and the 2012 Election - USATODAY.com


    The GOP-led House voted today to block funding to implement the nation's health care law.

    The action came on several amendments to a must-pass spending bill that would pay for government operations from March through September.

    Specifically, the House voted to prohibit any funds be used by the Internal Revenue Service to carry out the law's mandate that Americans buy health insurance. The individual mandate, one of the law's key tenets, has been struck down by federal courts.

    Unconstitutional and defunded.

    The first extremely important step in the road to recovery is to kill Obamacare in its tracks.

    We're going to see tons of MSM stories about how the GOp wants to kill people.

    What ever it takes to kill this monstrosity I am for it. This nonsense along with Cap and Trade are economy killers.

    Besides it tells Obama his days a Dictator are numbered, I hope.

    The House can vote all they like. But it won't make it passed the Senate. And even if it does, Obama will veto the bill. Good job, GOP! More time wasting!

    Spending bills start in the House, so if Senators want their money for their states they can't vote it down forever. If the House sticks together and to its plan....it controls spending. The Senate can't originate a spending bill.

    But the Senate can negotiate it. If the Senate won't pass it, then it won't get passed. That's how it works. They have to come to a compromise. And like I said, Obama will just veto it if it makes it through the Senate (which it won't). Anybody who thinks Obama won't veto this bill is sadly mistaken.

    Well if it manages to get as far as being Vetoed does Obama really think they'll remake the entire ordeal and then actually vote it *through* - it'll die after that due to a lack of action and rollover.

    The President isn't King, the Senate has a slim majority for the Dem's and Obama will be forced to shut down the gov't or sign the bill.
