Boehner Dodges Question of Whether He Will Fund or Defund Obamacare

This poses some interesting questions.

Is it possible that the U.S. House of Representatives can actually "not fund" portions of ObamaCare ??

Much of the "funding" lies at the HHS level.

Can The House "override" some portions ?

Or is this all just "symbolic" for political pre-election posturing ?

"Legal" opinions Please

( – House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would not say on Thursday whether he intends to permit or not permit funding for Obamacare in whatever legislation the House enacts to keep the government funded past Sept. 30.


The federal fiscal year ends on Sept. 30 and begins on Oct. 1. The continuing resolution under which the federal government is currently being funded expires on Sept. 30. Any money spent after that date by the administration must first be approved in a law passed by both houses of Congress and signed by the president.

If the Republican majority House includes language in the bills to fund the government past Sept. 30 that prohibits the administration from using any money to implement Obamacare, the administration will not be able to implement Obamacare.

To expect anything out of Bohner other than obfuscation, bull# and lies is an exercise in futility. He is a corporate whore, doing what he is paid to do by his owners. Nothing he says or does has any integrity, honesty or competence involved. Bohner and his boy toy Cantor are two of the biggest jokes in a system full of jokes.

The only option the government has is to keep the funding rolling and the debt building. As long as no creditors call for their money all is fine, if they do then shot them and the debt disappears.

The way the whole money thing is structured is scamming the government coffers bad. First the government has to pay interest on the bonds it provides to the Fed to print the money, then has to pay interest again as the Fed puts on its cut, passes the cash to places like Goldman Sachs and others who put on their cut then passes back to the government so it can actually do something. If currency was a public asset instead of a private one this problem would not exist. Financial reform is not a matter of if, but when and how.
