Harry Reid Holds NIH Funding Hostage

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) responded to a question about funding for children's cancer research by asking, "Why would we do that?" Republicans pounced on the remark as evidence that Reid cared less for sick children than for his own partisan position. While Reid tried to recover from the gaffe, what he says he really meant was just as bad, or perhaps worse: he wanted to fund cancer trials, but wouldn't unless the House accepted everything else he wanted. In effect, he is holding every program hostage until he gets his way.

Republican Congressmen Plan Strategy To Delay Obamacare

Now that the Continuing Resolution has been returned to the House of Representatives with funding restored for Obamacare, the Republicans are faced with a choice. Do they press for defunding now, with the strong possibility of a fight over a government shutdown, or instead push for a delay of the implementation of Obamacare?

The Government Shutdown: Who is really to Blame?

The fight to defund Obamacare has been heating up quite a bit recently.  As the battle over the current Continuing Resolution to fund the government comes to a head, the Democrats in the Senate have lobbed many serious accusations against conservatives.

Defunding: Senate Timetable

[UPDATE: 9/24, 2:30 p.m. ET. In a surprise move, Senator Cruz has just begun a filibuster of the motion to proceed. Apparently, he was concerned that the Republican leader, Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) was working with the Democratic leader, Harry Reid (R-Nevada) to outmaneuver him later in the process. So he took his chance to seize control of the floor a couple of days earlier than expected. FreedomWorks strongly supports Sen. Cruz's efforts. Help spread the word and pressure the Senate to defund ObamaCare using the hashtags, #KeepCruzing, #MakeDCListen, and #DefundObamaCare.]

Enough Political Games, Procedural Tricks and Posturing - Defund Obamacare

The current fight to defund Obamacare seems incomprehensible to many inside the Beltway. They explain with pious snark and dismissive ridicule that it is not a fight that can be won. They say that despite the federal government needing the House's approval to spend money, the House's approval is not really needed for the federal government to spend money. Well, the House's approval is needed, and Republicans won the House two elections in a row. This defunding CR should have happened in January, 2011. It should happen now.

New Poll: Political Danger for Republicans Who Fund ObamaCare

Fresh polling data released today by FreedomWorks reveals that Republicans face greater political danger if they vote to fund ObamaCare than if they stand on principle to defund it.

Boehner is plotting to fund ObamaCare, but you can help stop him

Apparently, House Republican leaders think we're stupid. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and his leadership team are reportedly trying to pass a Continuing Resolution (CR) through the House this week that funds ObamaCare but looks like it defunds it.

Key Vote NO on Any Continuing Resolution that Funds ObamaCareAs one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and urge him or her to vote NO on the upcoming Continuing Resolution if it contains further funding for ObamaCare. FreedomWorks will score against any Continuing Resolution that contains funding for the further implementation or enforcement of ObamaCare, and may score any procedural vote towards that end.

Continuing Irresolution

In the ongoing fight to protect the American people from Obamacare, the next opportunity to deal a significant blow will be the next Continuing Resolution. Establishment politicians of both parties will try to continue the warped practice of allowing the federal government to trundle on. Defenders of liberty and limited government activists should take this opportunity not just to stop Obamacare, but to begin slowing runaway government.

The Continuing Resolution and Sequestration

Despite every attempt by congressional Republican leaders to preemptively surrender, the fight to get a sane Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund only the necessary parts of government is not over. Senate Democrats and the White House, not content with victory, are pushing for even more spending and taxes, giving reformers an opportunity.
