Boehner: There will be no spiking of the ball if ObamaCare is overturned

posted at 5:51 pm on June 21, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

After we all spent another anxious morning waiting for a possible ruling on ObamaCare from the Supreme Court, only to be put off again until next week, Speaker Boehner sent out a memo to his fellow House Republicans insisting that there are to be no political shenanigans in the event of an ObamaCare-smackdown.

“There will be no spiking of the ball,” he wrote in a memo to the conference.

“Republicans are focused on the economy … We will not celebrate at a time when millions of our fellow Americans remain out of work.” …

He repeated that the House will vote to repeal any part of the law, which he referred to as “ObamaCare,” left standing by the Supreme Court, and that any attempt to enact new reforms will be “step-by-step.”

“Republicans will not repeat the Democrats’ mistakes,” he wrote. “We won’t rush to pass a massive bill the American people don’t support.” …

“No one knows what the Court will decide, and none of us would presume to know,” Boehner wrote.

Alas, it’s true — nobody except the nine Supreme Court justices can really know about ObamaCare’s outcome. As Justice Ginsburg quipped the other day, those who know don’t talk, and those who talk, don’t know. The leader of the House Democrats, however, appeared somewhat more confident than Boehner as she yet again talked about her faith in ObamaCare’s “ironclad” constitutionality this morning:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who  shepherded the bill into law during her tenure as speaker of the House, had previously denied Democratic discussions of a contingency plan, but earlier this week Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer led reporters to believe that Democrats had in fact discussed the range of opinions that could be issued by the Supreme Court.

“Of course we’ve discussed it,” Hoyer, D-Md., said Tuesday. “But it is our conviction that the Supreme Court is going to uphold the plan.” …

“The only meetings that I have been party to have been those where we have heralded the benefits of the plan, that tens of millions of people have already benefited from it,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said as she ticked off a list of gains written into the law.

I find it difficult to believe that the Democrats are really without contingency plans, but perhaps the White House is going to take the lead on that one. The PR-acrobatics, I’m sure, will be fascinating.

Mitt Romney, as we already know, has promised to repeal ObamaCare on the first day of a Romney presidency if it isn’t struck down, and has already outlined a plan for replacing it.

And then, of course, there’s always the possibility that the Supreme Court will uphold ObamaCare, and President Obama will get reelected in November. …Gulp. This waiting is the worst.

Dancing in the streets, maybe.

And since it won’t be Dems/Libs/Lefties/Proggies, it will be a nice dance.

Of course, the wailing and gnashing and rioting of the DLLPs will be just a block away.

You and me both:
“Now Thank We All Our God”
by Martin Rinckart, 1586-1649
Translated by Catherine Winkworth, 1829-1878

1. Now thank we all our God
With heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things hath done,
In whom His world rejoices;
Who from our mother’s arms
Hath blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love,
And still is ours today.

2. Oh, may this bounteous God
Through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts
And blessed peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace
And guide us when perplexed
And free us from all ills
In this world and the next.

3. All praise and thanks to God
The Father now be given,
The Son, and Him who reigns
With them in highest heaven:
The one eternal God,
Whom earth and heaven adore!
For thus it was, is now,
And shall be evermore.

A certain poster on here suggested, for a certain bit of schadenfreude, to check out DU during the Wisconsin recall count. As literally physically ill as it makes me to go there, I may have to check it out again if ObamaCare is struck down.

“There will be no spiking of the ball,” he [Crybaby Boehner] wrote in a memo to the conference.

Hey, Weeper of the House: STFU and get bent, you miserable coward. You couldn’t even bring yourself to force one complete reading of even one bill of the many 2,000+ page monstrosities that flew through the House, by hook and by crook and by DemonPass and by every illegitimate method the America-hating dems could think up.

You are total sh!t. THe GOP should spike the Crybaby when ObamaCare is overturned. SPike him head-first out the leadrship door and relegate that weeping, wilting whiner to the backbenches where he belongs. Boehner couldn’t lead anything. He is the worst GOP Speaker ever, at the most important time. Awful.

Spike Boehner!

I’ll get to the point. Firstly, Boehner is a complete coward. Secondly, Rep. Issa is the one who’s done all of the leg work on this investigation. Thirdly, Boehner until now has been silent on the matter. To that, there have been plenty of stories about how his office was obstructing the investigation, wanted to end it, and distanced itself altogether from it, even refusing to directly comment on it. What you see here is Boehner campaigning to be the Speaker again.

None that I know. The issue here is one of financing the program. It cannot be sustained indefinitely in its current form.

If you cannot see that, you are blind. Please study up on the $500M cut to Medicare THIS fiscal year by Obamacare and you will then realize why Obama-Pelosi care was such a tragic mistake.

Not to worry, the GOP has a ready made replacement for Obamacare if the SC strikes it down…Romneycare!

I would hope that Boehner won’t allow anyone to spike the ball. If this bill goes down, the Republicans are going to have a lot of work to do and they’d better do it right. They haven’t proven the voters right, with what they’ve done so far and they can thank their lucky stars Harry Reid is in charge of the Senate. If the Democrats had a real smooth politician there, he’d be making these bills look really bad.

They’d better tea party up because, if the voters keep them in power in the House and give them the Senate, they’re going to have a lot of responsibility and they’d better do it right. They only have 2 years and, if they do it wrong, they’ll be sitting at home watching Groundhog day.

Well Speaker Boehner, it appears that you won’t be happy to see ObamaCare in the dustbin of history, but we all are looking forward to that and we will be celebrating!

I vaguely remember, not a spiking of the ball,
but throwing it far up in the stands in a big
game, though don’t press me for details.

I think there is something strong and
confident when true champions put
the exclamation point on it.
Larry Bird, for example — wrong sport for
spiking the ball, was known for launching
an (per Bob Ryan back in the day) ICBM
three.

Back to the first part, most real pros
score and move on. Sometimes,
however, some jubilation and
maybe even dancing in the
streets helps to put all the
turmoil behind.

OT and on another thread here this evening
Levin’s show this evening.
Yep, Reagan was such a dufus /

The incredible of our lives almost
never show up in the headlines.

Maybe, just spike the punch!
Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Here’s hoping the regime
begins the accelerated
collapse it so richly deserves.
… that people start seeing

You want my links for coming to the conclusion that Mitt and Obama are two of a kind. Both Communist upbringing to both working for the same laws as leaders. Though Mitt is the teacher and Obama the student in that Mitt did more and did it first. Mitt is also an actual leader. Obama very Marxist but can not think on his feet and had better have someone else write his material.

Why Mitt is a far worst option than Obama. In addition Mitt would get some Republicans to vote with the Democrats who would all support Mitt once in office.

Good grief, people. His letter wasn’t to the American people. His letter was to the House gop caucus. Spike the ball all you freaking want. Do your best endzone dance. Honk your horn. Get hammered. Whatever. But it’s a little silly to act like Boehner was telling YOU not to spike the ball. That is, unless you happen to be a republican member of Congress…in which case, yes, he was writing to you.

Wade on June 22, 2012 at 11:50 AM

None of us know what is going to happen with the Supreme Court decision, the decision might strike the whole law or leave a mess, so it is not a good idea to celebrate for too long. The media and the Obama campaign has had ample time to figure out what kind of monkey wrench to throw at the Congress and the American people to make voiding the law into a “problem” because everything is always a “problem” for the liberals. They will whine and they will start doing emotional things, so Boehner’s warning, is not to get entrapped in any bait the democrats throw at this “problem.”

There will be some pressure to pass some quick fixes based on liberal whining. We don’t want those either.

I am in favor of tax deductible, cumulative health spending accounts, where your benefits don’t disappear at the end of the calendar year, belong to you, and can be used to pay your future health care bills, combined with catastrophic health insurance. And if you accumulate funds in that account you could even use them for your premiums.

I would be in favor of a law that defined health insurance, so that it can ONLY be used for hospitalization and risk events. And said that Health Plans are not the federal government’s business, especially where they are freely given by your employer.

I think I would do that for Medicare and Medicaid too, no more “Health Plans,” just the part of insurance that is risk, unpredictable, covered by a policy. Right now the government tries to recreate private health plans in government coverage, so it would be best to stop calling everything Health Care, because not all of it is the basics that are required. If we go with a health savings plan that accumulates, most elders will have a large account by the time they are elderly and can pay for the things they want, and think harder about the things they are not sure they want. Right now they have no incentive to refuse things that come…ha ha…”free” from Medicare.

I also would rather see, Rather than some kind of celebrating in D.C., the people who have whined about the health insurance system in their state DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, and stop whining to the federal government, because people like Obama and the senate democrats hear you. Get going on your local solutions, so the feds don’t have any reason to intervene. Initiate something like The Tea Party for Health Savings Accounts” protest in your state, or something innovative. I do know a lot of people on our side, also whine about insurance companies.

Let’s not celebrate the turning around of our country from the hands of a Commie.

It is clear that John Boehner is not the man to lead this charge and must be replaced asap.

Typicalwhitewoman on June 22, 2012 at 1:40 PM

I would advise Speaker Boehner to NOT watch the Sean Hannity show after the court strikes down Obamascare.
