House Votes to Defund Obamacare and Pisses off the Liberal's Imperial Leader

You absolutely can't find and unbiased story on this:
The House of Representatives Friday morning passed a spending bill that would keep the government funded past Sept. 30 — and would also strip funding for the Affordable Care Act.

The bill passed by a 230-189 vote. All but one Republican voted in favor of the bill. All but two Democrats opposed it.
The continuing resolution will head to the Democratic-controlled Senate, where Democrats are expected to have enough votes to strip the language that defunds Obamacare from the bill. The government will shut down Oct. 1 if Republicans and Democrats cannot agree on a consensus bill.
The vote in the House came after two weeks of House leadership struggling to find a strategy that avoids a government shutdown but also appeases the ultra-conservative wing of the party who want to use the threat of a shutdown as a last-ditch effort to stop Obamacare, the implementation of whose main provisions starts next month.
Wednesday, House Speaker John Boehner gave in to the demands of his party's conservative wing and announced that he would bring to the floor a continuing resolution that includes the language defunding Obamacare. The bill keeps the government funded only through Dec. 15. 
Let's see: All but one Republican voted to defund Obamacare yet the vote was Boehner giving in to the demands of his party's conservative wing? How in the hell does that even make sense? But this is what passes for unbiased journalism these days. 
At any rate, this really pissed off that petulant brat the liberals and the liberal media call the president of the United States. As usual, he thought it all about him.So he stomped his foot and shook his head and threw a little temper tantrum in front front of the auto workers how could have their health benefits slashed under Obamacare:
“The debate that’s going on in Congress is not meeting the test of helping the middle class,” the president said. “They’re focused on politics. They’ve focused on messing with me. They’re not focused on you.”

Focused on messing with you, huh, punk? Don't give yourself so much credit. The House Republicans are finally focused on what they should be focused on: Saving this country from financial disaster and the wholesale destruction of the greatest health care system on the face of the earth. This is what they are focused on:
It should be blatantly obvious to even the ignorant that these and so many more reasons are why Obamacare has to be defunded -- now. But this is lost on a spoiled, self-absorbed brat who won't have to worry about money -- or quality health care -- for the rest of his life. He will live completely unaffected by the inferior, overpriced health care his is forcing on the peasants.

Now the Senate must act to defund Obamacare. It may be tough, but with the widespread opposition to Obamacare from everywhere -- even from Barack the Terrible's biggest supporters like the union thugs -- the Republicans should be able to get enough Democrats to join them. It is essential that we starve this killer of our health care system to death. Some "conservatives" say it can't be done. They say it's best to let it fail on it's own. But these "conservatives" are apparently ignorant of the history of government entitlement programs: Every single one of them was unworkable from inception but they have become entrenched just as Obamacare will and now grow like a cancer on the country. Regardless of how unworkable it is Obamacare will be here to stay if we don't kill the funding before it takes root.
