No, Mr. Boehner, the Constitution is the Law of the Land

Yesterday, Diane Sawyer asked John Boehner in an interview if he planned to push for repeal of Obamacare.  He responded that “the election changes that” and “Obamacare is the law of the land.”

No, Mr. Boehner, the Constitution is the law of the Republic.

In April 2011, following the failure of Republicans to defund Obamacare during the first budget battle, I wrote the following at Red State:

If it is reckless to shut down the government over Obamacare, then there is nothing in the budget worth fighting for.  Due to the degree of entrenchment of the existing entitlement, even Paul Ryan’s plan will not balance the budget for another 26 years.  If Obamacare is not defunded within the next year, it will be virtually impossible to completely repeal and will make a balanced budget an impossibility.

Well, they said all along that we’d wait until 2012. They were sure we’d win the election.  Ironically, by running away from the Obamacare issue, they ensured that we would not win the election.  Now that they lost, they say tough luck on Obamacare.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking: “if we create gridlock over Obamacare, we will…..”  We will what?  We will risk political reprisal?  Then what are we fighting for in the first place?  If we are unwilling to fight the implementation of a 4th entitlement program, how will we ever have the moxie to fix the existing ones?

    Well, the Dead Elephants were/are ready to run Constitutionally disqualified Rubio for POTUS. Feigning interest in upholding the Constitution, by the GOP, is part of why they are becoming a joke as a party representing a particular segment of the American population.
    Romney has at some point held the opposite of every plank in the Republican Party platform but he was the nominee foisted upon us by the GOP…seems like that has some ugly implications

    i understand the impulse to let the jackasses bury themselves in an embarrassing mountain of debts and failure, BUT when has it ever stuck to them? HUH? when has it ever been problem for them to blame it on a conservative?

    we need to come to a realization that these jackasses will always be able to blame their problems on everything EXCEPT the jackasses that caused them.

    we need to learn from history and stop thinking that “people will wakeup” Americans are idiots and seem to be proud of it.

    “Americans will separate from DC or be serfs.”

    DC separated from (true) Americans some time ago. I’m not sure of the exact day. I guess that doesn’t matter now.

    @Moe Tom
    I don’t know who you are referring to, but what I want from you is to be right with God. To hold steady and be brave. I want all you guys to do the absolute best you can to protect all that you love so dear. Us women folk and the little chilluns need you all more than we can express.

    Voter fraud is a problem. But may not have lost us the election. We need to fight for voter ID.

    Those who didn’t vote were abstaining on principle. If it’s a choice between 2 evils, chose neither. It’s a tough pill to swallow given the evil that retained power. And we feel betrayed. But it isn’t their fault they couldn’t vote Republican.

    The GOP is the problem. Romney wouldn’t go on talk radio. RINOs hate us as much as we hate them.

    American Patriots have NO representation.

    If not for the 2nd Amendment, we’d have no reason to stay with the Republicans… go third party.

    After 4 more years of the DB that may no longer be a concern either.

    At what point do we go third party?
