    that coherent babbling will be added to the GOP platform?

      ...just wanted to reply to your last comment on kos's Oct. 21 diary regarding supposed Republican hatred of democracy (I've been travelling overseas the past week).

      You're wrong (again) with your last comment. The house certainly could have defund the ACA by attaching a legislative rider, like the Hyde Amendment, to the year-end spending bill. The rider would have prohibited any funds from being spent on implementing or enforcing ACA. It would also have rescinded unspent balances that had been appropriated and turned off the exchange subsidy and new Medicaid spending. This is all clearly in the House’s Constitutional authority.

      The House didn’t succeed with this strategy, but it could have succeeded if Republicans had united. My point all along has been that House Conservative’s actions are entirely consistent with the Constitution. Therefore, kos is wrong in saying that these Conservatives hate our system of government.
