I just read an article on Newsmax.com that made my blood boil titled, “Cruz, Rubio Build ‘Grassroots Army’ to Stop Obamacare, Wednesday, 07 Aug 2013 By Lisa Barron. I will paraphrase some of Lisa’s background to assure continuity and comment on some of the direct quotes she included. I encourage every American who is sicker of our Congress than the 11% who are proud of their work, to read the article and to pass on this publication and urge everyone else to do the same.
These Republican “mossbacks” that are as liberal and progressive as Obama should be thrown out of the Republican Party. The Republicans are as leaderless as Obama, all they seek is a Socialist Democracy and re-election.
Thank God we have two Hispanic Senators, Rubio and Cruz, who are listening to the people. They are trying to apply pressure on Senator Mitch McConnell to strip money for Obamacare from any federal funding bill.
Just 13 Senate Republicans have reportedly signed a letter, circulated by Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, vowing to tie the health care reform law to the federal budget. The rest should resign now.
There is an online petition — http://www.dontfundobamacare.com — that reads, “On October 1st, millions of Americans will be required to enroll in Obamacare and could lose access to their doctors and be forced to pay higher premiums and higher taxes. Unfortunately petitions are ignored by the Republican leadership in Congress too. They do not even know the people are as pissed off with their cowardice as they are with Obama’s.
Hold on to your hat and pay close attention to what the “Mossbacks” provide.
Sen. Richard Burr, Republican from North Carolina called it “the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard of,” while Sen. John McCain of Arizona has said, “Most Americans are really tired of those kinds of shenanigans.”
Mr. Burr and McCain, you two would not know what most Americans think if it bit you in your Liberal-Progressive butt. We are sick of wasting our money and destroying our freedoms. You two are just waiting for the train wreck so you can chase ambulances getting re-elected. If the Americans in North Carolina and Arizona agree with these two, they need mental help.
“An aide for McConnell told The Hill that while he always has supported repealing Obamacare, he questions his conservative colleagues’ tactics.”
McConnell could not “lead” anyone out of a paper sack if both ends were open.
“The aide also pointed to a recent Congressional Research Service report commissioned by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, which found that a government shutdown would not stop the implementation of Obamacare”.
I just lost my respect for Tom Coburn. Instead of trying to find a solution to a problem that has this nation so divided, he commissions, probably at our expense, a Research Project to hide behind.
Will the Republicans ever wake up? The ship is sinking while all but two, Cruz and Rubio, take a month’s vacation to cozy up to the voters and enjoy their royalty status.
If I had to choose the best “LEADER” we have that is trying to unite us rather than divide us it would be a toss-up between these two brave Americans. Both are taking a risky approach by trying to get us to be a United States where the people used to stand together for freedom. After the next civil war, Americans will again stand together as one.

I think you have the situation perfectly analyzed.. Solving it is like making water run
Congress today is a disgrace. The morning news regarding loss of staffers would cause a brain drain if they had to suffer with Obamacare costs is laughable at best. Where would they get a job if they left government service? They work for Congressmen because they can’t find a real job.
