Steve King, (R, IA-4) said on the Palin Update with Kevin Scholla the government shutdown’s duration is yet to be determined, but Constitutional Conservatives are making headway. Agreements were reached to pay the troops and federal workers, but Rep. King said ObamaCare should not be implemented regardless of political consequences. He said the consequences are really rewards.
Rep. King also said the country will not default on October 17 if the debt ceiling is not raised, but did say if the continuing resolution and the debt ceiling issues conflated this would be the first time in our nation’s history that occurred. He supports a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution and only with that amendment would he approve raising the debt ceiling.
Rep. King said the “Barrycade” shenanigans at D.C.s war and other memorials were “the most spiteful act committed by an out-of-touch with the American experience President.” The Congressman pushed the “Barrycades” aside to let veterans see their memorial.
He said the shutdown’s end is a matter of which side blinks first. Rep. King agreed with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s assessment that an unofficial third party already exists with Senators Cruz, Lee, and others of like mind.
Rep. King said Obama has unconstitutionally amended ObamaCare and Congress is under no obligation to fund it.
He Sarah Palin is “my kind of person….She is there first with the truth…her conservatism points to True North.”
Commonwealth Commonsense: Obama responsible for shutdown.
Susan Stimpson recounted Sen. Ted Cruz’s speech at the Family Foundation of Virginia last week and said he is the voice of the American people. She said the Obama bears complete responsibility for the shutdown which happened under his watch and is very good at focusing on distractor non-issues like the Washington Redskins’ allegedly “insensitive” name. (Ed. Note: in 1993, my alma mater, St. John’s University succumbed to the political correctness cancer, renaming their 16 “Redmen” varsity athletic teams, “Red Storm.”)
Steel Resolve: CRs a Bad Habit
Sarah Steelman cited Sen. Rand Paul and said the practice of continuing resolutions to fund government is a bad habit. Funding the government requires 12 resolutions each of which are debated which is the normal process. The establishment and consultants in both parties have become addicted to CRs. The government funding debate that is occurring today is supposed to happen.
