Shutting Down the Government to De-Fund ObamaCare

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Shore Properties 1005238

There are alot of folks calling for a government shutdown in order to de-fund the Affordable Health-care Act (ACA), also known as ObamaCare. But what would happen during a government shutdown? Well , for one the housing recovery would experience a slowdown. During a shutdown, the Federal Housing Administration, “which insures and guarantees a large number of single-family mortgages and even more rental and multifamily properties,” would cease operations, blocking home loan and insurance applications. Not good for us in the Real Estate Business.

So, for everyone out there demanding that House Republicans shut down the government to de-fund ObamaCare, you need to know that it (de-funding the ACA) WILL NOT happen. Please read this snipit of an op-ed from Peter Wehner:

"The choice is not, and never has been, between those willing to de-fund ObamaCare and those willing to fund it. That supposed choice is in fact an illusion. To de-fund the ACA would require the House and Senate to pass new legislation, which Barack Obama would have to sign. And no one, not even Senators Cruz, Paul, Lee and Rubio, believes the president would do that. 

All the posturing...is nothing more than political theater."

Is hurting the economy, including the housing recovery really worth it considering the desired results from so-called conservatives in The House, can never be achieved?

Cut and past this link to read the entire op-ed: http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2013/09/19/conservatives-and-the-quest-for-political-purification/

The article is from Peter Wehner, who is a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. Previously he worked in the administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush. In the last of which, he served as deputy assistant to the president.

I wish we could close down most of the government agencies for good.  But I agree that the Republicans are just wasting everybody's time by this stunt because the Senate will never pass it and Obama would just veto it anyway.  The healthcare law is in effect and they need to implement it.

Oh, who was it that suggested the sequester?  And what was the original reason?  And now it's converted to "the other party" wants to destroy America. 

And hacks like you spread the lie.

What did Orwell say about "the lie" and the Two Legs?  Do you remember why he said that?  Or even know?

Tired talk Karl.

The reason I quote Orwell so often to you in my responses is because you epitomize what Orwell was rebelling against.  He was a committed socialist and his precious socialism would work were it not for the Two Legs who ruined it.

The Little Imam is ruining it too.  What's that Reagan said about ending up in the trash heap of history?

Spreading the crap like you did above (and I say that because the word works) is Orwellian!

It's tired talk Karl.

OK - Back to the subject at hand, if you'd like to read the entire article from the former Reagan/Bush I/Bush II advsior, feel free. Again, the ACA isn't going ANYWHERE. Why would people want to harm America with this ploy which is "nothing more than political theater."

Who wanted the sequester and why?

The "health" care plan as written and how they want to implement it (remember who gets out of it and why) will truly harm America Karl.  Period.  If harm is the bottom line, then defund it.  Less harm.

I know because "It is the law of the land." Hmmm, so was abortion being illegal, until it was changed. So was segregration until it was changed. Laws change Karl and that is why conservatives continue to fight.

This POS healthcare bill needs to be shot dead. Unions don't want it....after pushing for it. Congress exempted themselves after shoving it down our throats.

It is people like you and the MSM and the idiot Republican leadership who keep saying...it is a lost cause, it is law. Laws change and I pray to God that this one is struck down. You think the economy sucks now? Just wait until this thing goes into full effect.

Anyone who believes this will reduce costs, give everyone insurance and not cost billions more than projected is a complete and utter idiot. And that is as nice as I can be.

Playing games of "10 years tax increase pay for 5 years of 0bamacare" is not revenue nuetral...other than in the eyes of JAs in Congress and the MSM. BUt in the MSMs defense, I doubt most them can even balance their checkbooks, let alone understand macro or micro ecomonics.

Show me one government program that came in under budget!

Oh, the irony. The Republicans want to defund Obamacare in exchange for funding the government. But the health care act at the center of this storm would continue its implementation process during a shutdown. That's because its funds aren't dependent on the congressional budget process.

Thank you for the comment Michael. The problem of course is the Tea Party driven Republicans will want to do this all again in the New Year....sigh.
