Not a single Republican in the House or the Senate voted for the Obama care law. Outrage over the way that the bill was rammed through Congress, literally in the dark of night, and without time for any Senator or Congressman to read, let alone understand the bill continues unabated today.
Remember Nancy Pelosi’s infamous “we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it’ quote? Now, on the eve of the GOP wresting control of the Senate from Harry Reid, the same disgusting tactic is underway to fund most of the federal government through the rest of fiscal year 2015. Known as the CROmnibus, as it consists of a Continuing Resolution (CR) to temporarily fund the Department of Homeland Security, while using an Omnibus to fund the rest of the government. Since this is being foisted on America without time to read, let alone understand, I suggest that the bill should be called the CRAmnibus, as its being crammed down our throats, much like Obama care.
The GOP controlled House was certainly put in a very bad position. The House did a significant amount of work to pass individual funding bills, know as regular order, but Harry Reid did not reciprocate in the Senate. That was wrong! Forcing the CRAmnibus through is a second wrong, and although it sounds cliche, two wrongs don’t make a right!
Pass a two-month CR. Get the new GOP controlled Congress sworn in next month. Pass the individual bills through regular order, while defunding the President’s illegal amnesty, and begin dismantling Obama care. It’s why Americans elected Republicans in the midterms.
