Post-Shutdown, Some Conservatives Pledge To Continue Fight Against ACA

October 18, 2013 — Although the bipartisan agreement reached this week to end the federal government shutdown largely defeated a Republican effort to defund the Affordable Care Act (PL 111-148) some conservative lawmakers on Thursday pledged to continue their efforts against the law in upcoming budget negotiations, the Washington Post reports (Eilperin, Washington Post, 10/17).
In an interview on Fox News' "Hannity," Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said, "We have missed a golden opportunity to do something about it. But we haven't given up the fight." He urged U.S. residents "not [to] feel depressed" about the outcome because "[w]e are going to prevail on this issue. It is just a matter of time" (Cox, "Hill Tube," The Hill, 10/17).
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in an interview with ABC News on Thursday said, "I would do anything, and I will continue to do anything to stop the train wreck that is Obamacare." When asked if he would consider another shutdown over the law, Cruz said, "What I intend to do is continue to stand with the American people working to stop Obamacare" (Blake, "Post Politics," Washington Post, 10/17).
Meanwhile, Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), in an interview on Fox News' "America's Newsroom," vowed to use "every opportunity" to push for vote on a measure that would bar federal lawmakers and their staff from receiving employer contributions in the exchanges. He said, "I guarantee you [my proposal] will be back," adding, "I'm not going away and this issue is certainly not going away" (Viebeck, "Hill Tube," The Hill, 10/17).

Either the republicans just do get the fact that there are Many United States Citizens who Need Health Care or they are only representing Big Businesses who only care about their bottom line and lining their own pockets, especially insurance companies who if they had their own way would only collect money and not pay any medical bills at all, except for their own Executives.
After all, if--IF The Republican Party was truly 'pro-life' they would be Pro-ObamaCare!!!
The one and only reason they are against abortions is God Forbid a teenage girl continue her education--God forbid their is not an under class of uneducated women who need to work menial--low wage-- jobs and easily exploitable.  After all, the rich need cheap maids and cheap nannies.
