Letter to a Liberal on the Shutdown

Clean CRs funding parts of the Government are being passed. Yet, Reid and Obama persist in tabling them. The Government was funded entirely except Obamacare from the very beginning. We wouldn't need a CR had Reid's Senate did their job and passed a budget. Reid hasn't passed a budget in five years. With no budget, the House has every right to discern spending priorities..... especially with a 20 trillion dollar debt looming before us.

You may not appreciate or like the idea that a President is not a dictator, such as a Hugo Chavez, demanding legislation from a rubber stamp Congress. Sorry, it doesn't work that way in this country, and never did.

Obama has already waivered or delayed over 1000 provisions of the Obamacare LAW, unconstitutionally. He has no power to legislate, but yet he did. Therefore, you believe the Republican House, which does have constitutional powers to legislate shouldn't have a say on what gets waived in this law? Only Obama has that authority??? No way.

The last Republican proposal was very reasonable, the individual mandate delay for one year, and forcing Congress and their staffs to eat their own cooking by participating in Obamacare. That was voted down by the Reid Senate. This is a Dingy Harry and Hussein Obama shutdown, period.

Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution requires that “all bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives, but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other bills.”

If any money is to be spent on anything, the bill must come out of the House of Representatives. If no bill is approved by that body and sent to the Senate, no money may be spent
So yes, the House does get to pick and choose what it funds
