‘Impotent Eric’ Cantor WILL APPROVE Obamacare Before All is Said and Done. Virginia WILL GET Cantorcare.

The legislatively impotent Eric Cantor will approve the full funding of Obamacare before this final battle is done. Mark my words.

While Ted Cruz plans to do what he can to defund Obamacare in the Senate, most give him little chance of success, since Mitch McConnell is solidly in favor of funding Obamacare and thwarting Cruz efforts. His own fellow “Republicans” were busy stabbing him in the back Sunday as he appeared on the Sunday Morning Talk Shows:

From The Blaze:

Fox News host Chris Wallace said on Sunday that top Republicans had sent him opposition research throughout the week on Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

Many top Republicans are upset that Cruz is threatening to filibuster if Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reinserts funding for Obamacare, after the House stripped the money from a recently passed continuing resolution bill, Wallace said.

“This has been one of the strangest weeks I’ve ever had in Washington,” Wallace said. “As soon as we listed Ted Cruz as our featured guest this week, I got unsolicited research and questions, not from Democrats but from top Republicans, to hammer Cruz.”

And Sarah Palin wants to know who done it:

“We ask as an American people collectively that they not wave a white flag and just capitulate and give in to the liberals and to those who want this socialized program of health care coverage in our nation,” Palin says.

But at the end of the day, we all know it was the John McCain, John Boehner the “Impotent Eric” Cantor and their minions who are behind the efforts to scuttle the Cruz missile.

And shortly after the House voted to withhold funding for Obamacare last week, Impotent Eric Cantor sent out emails bragging to his “followers” that he defunded this ruinous legislation.

cosponsor-defundAnd of course, Cantor’s followers believe that he truly wants to get rid of Obamacare, but since this bill passed and was signed into law on March 23, 2010 the House has passed meaningless resolution after meaningless resolution to repeal Obamacare all the while funding the bill with each and every Continuing Resolution passed by Cantor.

For 3 and a half years, Cantor has promised to work to rid the land of Obamacare and has yet to come close.

Now, with less than a week before the full implementation and funding of the bill, Cantor is out pretending he is actually in favor of getting rid of Obamacare:

Speaking at a rally where Republican leaders cheered the House’s passage of a government spending bill that would permanently strip funding from the Affordable Care Act, Cantor called out by name each red state Senate Democrat facing reelection: Sens. Mark Begich (Alaska), Mark Pryor (Ark.), Mary Landrieu (La.) and Kay Hagan (N.C.). As the majority leader asked what those Democrats were doing to protect their states from Obamacare, audience members cheered loudly and applauded his remarks.

“Many Senate Republicans have promised to leave no stone unturned in fighting for this bill, and all of us here support that effort,” Cantor said. “We are calling on Senate Democrats to do the same thing.”

“I want to know where Senator Pryor stands on protecting the middle class,” he added. “How about Kay Hagan in North Carolina? Does she understand the consequences that Obamacare is having in her state?”

“What about Mary Landrieu of Louisiana?” Cantor continued. “And finally, what about Mark Begich of Alaska? … Will he vote to keep Obamacare in place?”

Well, Impotent Eric, there may be good news on the horizon. You may get one final chance to do what you have failed to do in 3 and a half years.

We all know Ted Cruz will not succeed in the Senate. Harry Reid will strip out the part of the bill Eric Cantor is crowing about and send the bill back over to the House side for Impotent Eric’s yea or nay vote.

So Cantor will be given a choice. Put his money where his mouth is and do not vote for the gutted Continuing Resolution, which would shut doen the government, or do as he has done 42 times so far and surrender to Obama.

Rogers, whose committee is effectively short-circuited by the three-month stopgap bill, said almost nothing about the Affordable Care Act, but House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) made clear that the main point of the measure is to block the health care law.

“This resolution will also protect the working middle class from the devastating effects of Obamacare,” said Cantor. “Let’s defund this law now, and protect the American people from the economic calamity that we know Obamacare will create.”

The vote marked the 42nd time that the House Republican conference has said yes to gutting Obamacare. While some tweaks have been made to the program, the Senate has ignored nearly everything the House has pushed for.

But when the question is either accepting the “economic calamity” and the “devastating effects of Obamacare” and shutting down the government rather than inflict such harmful law on Americans does anyone think Cantor will side with the American people over (potentially) his job? Over the press blaming Republicans for a government shutdown?

Hell no. The impotence rises and Cantor comes down on the side of big government every time. The devastating effects of Obamacare are really not his concern. He has managed to exempt himself and his staff from this affliction.

But never fear. Impotent Eric has a plan to make sure these battles stop happening. His “Young Guns” Political Action Committee is opening up shop in his home state of Virginia. You remember the Young Guns effective actions in the last election, right?

Indiana Republican Senate primary candidate Richard Mourdock called a recent Young Guns Action Fund-supported mail drop encouraging Democrats to vote in Indiana’s open GOP primary a “strike at conservatism.”

“This race is about who’s in touch with Hoosiers [and] for the heart and soul of the Republican Party,” Mourdock told Breitbart News. He added: “These are the same out-of-touch Washingtonians who want to dictate to the people of Indiana when it comes to who gets elected.”

Politico’s Maggie Haberman broke the original news story that the Cantor-affiliated Young Guns Network had spent over $100,000 on the mail drop in support of Washington insider and likely loser, Sen. Richard Lugar.

The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol called it “meddling” in support of the “elderly RINO, “while pointing how other Republicans, like Indiana’s Rep. Mike Pence, have remained neutral:

A GOP operative who’s backing Mourdock emailed to say, “Weird that a group called the ‘Young Guns’ has endorsed Lugar–when he’s not only been in Washington for 36 years but his opponent is endorsed by the NRA.”David Bossie, president of the conservative 501(c)4 organization Citizens United, said that the Young Guns’support of long-time incumbent Lugar raised important questions.

“Do Young Guns donors know their donations are being used to support an old establishment dinosaur, who has spent decades as part of the liberal establishment?” asked Bossie.

Well, that will stop Conservatives dead in their tracks. Using the same tactics like handing Opposition Research on their own members to the press to destroy Conservatives, Cantor is now bringing that underhanded political garbage home to roost.

Let’s just hope Cantor’s Young Guns project is as impotent as he is.

And I would suggest after the House gets the bill back and approves the funding for Obamacare in the end that we call this devastating law what is actually is: Cantorcare.

    Cruz Missile turns out to be a dud!

    Republicans have long said President Obama did not meet the Constitutional Requirement of being a natural born citizen of the U.S. in order to become President. Some, or even most, still question his status, even after he has released a copy of his Hawaiian birth certificate.

    These same Republicans are the ones who support the Canadian U.S. Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz, and Virginia AG, Ken Cuccinelli. Now, what will they say if Cruz decides to run for President? Cruz was born in Canada by his own admission, and apparently still has Canadian citizenship. He said he would renounce his Canadian citizenship, but hasn’t he ran into a little problem with that? Yep, not so easy to renounce citizenship is it Teddy? Where is your mothers birth certificate, and her US residency proof Ted?

    We know that his farther was Cuban, and that Cruz says his father fought along with, and for, Communism with Fidel Castro in Cuba. Cruz says his dad didn’t know Castro was communist! Is this Cruz guy related to a guy named McDonnell or what? He knew, he knew. So we know Ted Cruz has communist blood flowing in his veins, even if he does not know it.

    Since Canadian U.S. Senator Ted Cruz was born outside the US, doesn’t one of his parents have to prove that they are a natural born US citizen, and met the US residency requirements for him to be considered a natural born citizen?

    Now, apparently, his father was most likely a citizen of communist Cuba, since he lived in Cuba , and fought for the Communist Fidel Castro. Apparently he didn’t take US citizenship until it would benefit his son, in 2005. Why so long?

    So, his mother must prove that she met the requirements, including residency. Until then, how does Canadian US Senator Cruz meet the Constitutional requirement to be President? Will the Republicans stick something in their immigration bill so Cruz can run? Where is your mothers birth certificate, and her proof of residence Mr. Cruz? We are waiting????

    We know that Canadian U.S. Senator Cruz is both well connected to the failed Bush Regime, and Wall St.. Both Cruz and his wife helped or worked in some capacity for the Bush 43 political machine. His wife is a “big wheel” for Wall Streets Goldman, & Sachs. Is she a Crony capitalist? Was the Goldman Sachs job a reward from the failed Bush regime? Do we really want Wall St. in the White House, again? 2008, remember?

    Isn’t Ted Cruz really a political carpetbagger? Doesn’t he try to pawn the typical bag of Republican lies and deceptions designed to wipe out the middle-class? Will his Communist blood assure that more American jobs are exported to Communist China and Communist Vietnam? Will Cruz jump in bed with N. Korea? Cuba?

    Today’s form of Communism is about this, corruption, cheap labor, the oppression of women, and a two class system, the elite rich and the poor. Heard something like this before? Sound familiar? How bout the smell? Doesn’t this sound like the same ideals as the Republican Party? Yes it does!

    Don’t think so? Well, isn’t China fighting internal government corruption now? Isn’t China cheap labor? Where are women mentioned in the Chinese, Vietnam, Cuba, and N. Korean, governments? They aren’t. Where is the middle-class in China? Nobody knows! Sound like Virginia government? Sound like the Republican Party? Who doesn’t even want a minimum wage? Who doesn’t want equal pay for women? The Republicans?

    The ball is in the voters court. A vote for Cuccinelli is nothing more than a vote for backdoor Communism in Virginia. Republican style!

    Vote for freedom, vote to keep the middle-class, vote Democrat!

    Ted Cruz, Ken Cuccinnelli, aren’t both just troublesome Tea Party Politicians? Shame on you Tom!

    Proof that what goes around comes around, one just has to be patient.

      Does Gene have a last name? Or is Gene afraid to really stand up for what he/she believes? Own it? Thank you Gene for demonstrating the definition of a rant. That is all that needs to be said about your comments.

      We may disagree on the status of education funding in Hanover County, but we agree on many other things including your piece above on Eric Cantor. Unfortunately your predictions will likely come true. Rumor has it “the tides may slowly be turning”. One can act, hope, inform, remain vigilant and spread the word. You are doing your part on informing and spreading the word. My hat goes off to Ted Cruz and his supporters for the “filibuster”. Although Peter King slammed him for not doing it on principle, he completely was doing it on principle. Ted Cruz is doing exactly what he was elected to do. He must sleep better at night than most politicians(when he is not fighting the good fight)!!! The Tea party people came into being, in part, because politicians were saying one thing to get elected and doing another thing once they got elected. This continues and so does the Tea Party and others who remain frustrated.

      I guess most in congress can pretend to be against Obamacare, but since they will receive their subsidy, as will their employees, they really don’t care. They are going to start caring when they get primaried! I believe the pushback is growing.

      Keep up the good work!!! Tell Gene to take her meds!
      Danette Fulk proud to state my full name!!!

    Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to comment Danette.

    If you had been a regular at local Tea Party meetings the last few years, you would know who I am, as they do. I dropped in on occasion. You can be assured that all my political reps in both Washington and Richmond know who I am also.

    You see, all of them, and hate radio and TV, have had a very large hand in creating my voice.. I studied what they taught, and in my opinion it is simply ratings,
    money, and hate based lies and deceptions. Not all of it, but the core beliefs, are designed to enrich the rich, wipe out middle-class, suppress the poor. Reverse Robin Hood engineering.

    Did you happen to find anything in my post that is not true? I go to great lengths to try to be as accurate and honest as possible. Please, let me know if you ever see anything that is not true in my writings?

    If all that you are able to find wrong with my post is the omission of my last name, my mission is being accomplished. And please, let me try to address your concerns about my last name like this, DOES THE TRUTH HAVE A MIDDLE OR LAST NAME?

    Again, thanks for your time.

    P.S. regarding education. In the whole United States, I am sick and tired of being “held hostage” by education for more money. I been fighting this for about maybe 10 years, where have you been?

    Since when has higher education become an entitlement? Your Republican Tea Party Governor McDonnell, just happened to find an “extra” $230-250 Million in the last budget to throw at higher education. Why do we allow students with rich parents to go to college at state sponsored schools, and be subsidized by the poor and middle-class taxpayer? Why? $500,000 per year college presidents, $360,000 professors, $340,000 admin assistants! What a joke!

    And then, get this, get this, they tell us we cannot afford ObamaCare. Since when is higher education more important that taking care of the sick? What a joke!

    No, the Tea Party doesn’t want no part of this fight? Why? Because it involves their Reverse Robin hood philosophy, that is why. The poor tax payers, who make the Republican minimum wage are paying to send politicians and rich peoples children to UVA and Tech, just to name few. What a joke.

    If you do not know it, UVA is nothing but a school for the children of state politicians, the rich, and connected, to go to college. And be subsidized by the poor!

    Cuccinnelli will do more of what McDonnell has done.

    Vote freedom! Vote Democrat!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
