Mark Levin and Tom Graves on the Initiative to Delay/Defund Obamacare

Posted: September 18, 2013 at 9:08 am   /   by

John Boehner and the House GOP have both the authority and the majority needed to defund Obamacare.

Their authority comes from the US Constitution. Their majority comes from Tea-Party-driven victories in 2010 and 2012. Will they use what’s been given to them?

Sadly, Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy and other GOP “leadership” seem ready to wimp out, wasting both their authority and majority in what may be the last clear chance to kill the massively unpopular, unworkable leviathan called Obamacare.

The GOP could have moved on this issue in July and begun a PR campaign to preemptively avoid the “blame” from the Democrat-servile media. Instead, they’ve waffled and dithered, offering only a laughably transparent “trick” bill sponsored by Cantor that has quite appropriately gone nowhere. Shame on him and the whole GOP “leadership”.

In this 9-minute interview, Mark Levin (author of The Liberty Amendments) talks with Congressman Tom Graves (R-GA) about the Congressman’s bill to delay/defund Obamacare. Graves’ no-nonsense approach is winning sponsors in the House.

From the Mark Levin radio show, Sept 17, 2013.
