Something tells me that, though Sen.Ted Cruz’s main objective is the de-funding of Obamacare, there’s a dual purpose for this move. The open air outing of the RINOS leading the charge against him and Lee for the conservative voters in the upcoming primaries and elections in 2014.
Keep your powder dry folks and primary these republicrats out of the running, as for the seats in the lower house, you conservatives in the 8th district of Ohio, in this case, vote for the Democrat and kick ‘Johnny boy’ (Boehner) out of office, for at least two years.
The move won’t make a difference in the majority, but it will send a serious message to the GOP that they can’t take our fealty for granted any longer, so fall in line.
NOTE: John McCain, Lindsey Graham and host of other RINOS are in on it as well. Even if they succeed in derailing the Cruz-Lee move to defund Obamacare, they are painting major targets on their own hides for electoral revenge come next year.
The only reason why squishes in the House agreed to send a defund ObamaCare measure to the Senate is because they know the fix is in and the defunding of ObamaCare will never happen. Now I am not saying that these squishy members don’t want to repeal ObamaCare — they do — they are merely unwilling to put up any sort of a fight to repeal it.
The bottom line is that Speaker of the House John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Whip Kevin McCarthy all know that the only way they could convince the House to pass a CR that defunds ObamaCare is if this was merely a messaging bill that would be changed by the Senate.
NOTE II: Yeah, you can safely bet that the fix is in.
