HEY, JOHN BOEHNER – TRYING TO DEFUND OBAMACARE IN EXCHANGE FOR A DEBT CEILING INCREASE IS LIKE PICKETT’S CHARGE AT THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG – SHEER MADNESS!

.


Here’s the scenario, gang.  Republican House Speaker John Boehner (OH) is working to “extract” a roll-back/defunding of Obamacare in exchange for an increase in the national debt ceiling (we hit the ceiling on October 15th). Sounds a bit like out-and-out thuggery, a criminal shakedown gambit on the part of the Tea Party-infested GOP to completely tank the full faith & credit of the U.S. over legislation that was passed by Congress and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
.
This is nothing more than government by blackmail.  But, then again, the Republican Party was never really about anything else and certainly never interested in governing as much as bullying and terrorizing to force their will on the existing order.  Fuck’em ALL!
.
The GOP is going to find out that the train has left the station and their party-in-tatters has been blown out of the water, come November-2014.  There is a new order to things, a huge change in voting demographics for one thing (non-white eligible voters).
.
I can’t predict the future but I can opine that the enthusiasm level of Romney and McCain voters will not be very much on display in next year’s off-year congressional elections.  The only support the GOP congressional candidates have at this juncture is the 23% of the voting electorate, i.e., the Tea-Party nut bags.
.
.
Trying to defund Obamacare and then using that as a prop to whip up GOP voter turn-out in next November’s congressional elections is like beating a dead horse.  It will backfire big-time on Boehner & Company and it will be like Pickett’s charge on the 3rd day of the Battle of Gettysburg where something like 6,000 Confederates were mowed down by Yankee canon and infantrymen.
.
We’re going to witness a Gettysburg on the GOP next November and John Boehner thinks he can do a Pickett’s Charge up against the Obama Administration and wrest control of the implementation of Obamacare.  Get the hospital beds ready for the incoming casualties, John!
