Talk radio host and author “The Liberty Amendments,” Mark Levin predicted Congressional Republicans will not defund the president’s executive action on immigration or Obamacare this year on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
“When it comes to Obamacare, why don’t they try repealing it first, and we the people, the private sector, private industry, we’ll replace it…they just passed an omnibus budget act under McConnell and Boehner which funds every penny of Obamacare until September. So maybe what they can do is start making the case to the American people that once again they’re going to stand up like big boys and big girls and exercise their Article I power of the purse come October 1st of next year, since they surrendered it for the rest of this year, and they are going to defund, that is not pay for Obamacare, and let the chips fall where they may. Right now they already funded it” he stated.
He concluded “well, I think on the issue of amnesty, we have a huge problem. Both parties support it, big labor supports it, big corporations support it, both establishments support it, the problem is the American people reject it. So once again they go through these motions as Boehner did a couple weeks ago that they’re really going to fight Obama on this issue while at the same time he has one of his guys, McCaul…coming up with the salami tactics for the past six or seven bills. The first one, they’ll claim the border has been secured, and then the door flies wide open. So you’re asking me if these republicans will defund Obamacare, the answer is no. You’re asking me if these Republicans will prevent amnesty, the answer is they support it. So, these Republicans are not going to do any of those things.”
