House Votes To Defund Obamacare

I hope that these tactics can at least dismantle Obamacare until a true conservative can make his way into the White House and actually fix healthcare, rather than follow the broken European/Canadian model.

The House voted to defund President Obama’s health care overhaul on Friday during a sustained burst of floor activity on amendments to a temporary spending bill that would keep the government lights on but impose deep cuts on domestic programs.

Among the other actions the House took was to reject a controversial plan to end the Pentagon’s sponsorship of a NASCAR team and to vote for a ban on federal aid to Planned Parenthood.

The proposals were among more than 120 amendments remaining for the House to vote on as Republican leaders wind down a week of frenzied action on the spending bill.

The overall bill is the first step in an increasingly bitter struggle between Democrats and Republicans over how much to cut federal agencies’ funding over the second half of the budget year that ends Sept. 30. Current funding runs out March 4 and a temporary spending bill will be needed to avoid a government shutdown.
