House Passed Continuing Resolution That Funds Obamacare



I wish Republican leadership had the courage of Senator Rand Paul who as I write this is going to head into the 8th hour of his filibuster over the domestic drone program. Ah, but it that was the case, we wouldn’t be in this situation today. So it is that the House passed another continuing resolution that scrapped Rep. Gohmert’s amendment barring taxpayer dollars from paying for the president’s golf junkets. The CR also will fund Obamacare. They had their chance and they let it slip. But there were sixteen Congressmen who voted against it. Erick Erickson calls ten of them the Conservative Fight Club.

I will have the full list below, but RedState and other conservatives and the media should take notice of the Conservative Fight Club shaping up in the House of Representatives. There are ten members of the Conservative Fight Club. They are the nine members of the House Republican Conference who voted against the rule on the continuing resolution and voted against John Boehner for Speaker plus one guy who voted against today’s rule and was the ring leader the last time the GOP took out a Speaker.

The ten members of the Conservative Fight Club are:

  • Amash
  • Bridenstine
  • Broun
  • Gohmert
  • Huelskamp
  • Jones
  • Massie
  • Pearce
  • Salmon
  • Yoho

They are now the gold standard for conservatives in the House.
