Defunding won't pass the Senate, and the House will have to pass a CR with funding for Obamacare in it.

That is the reality. 

This entire exercise is fruitless.

For what reason(s) is this "exercise" -- I call it debate/discussion/dialogue--fruitless?
Please be more specific than "won't pass the Senate" which is conjecture.  Thanks in advance.

I'm with you Cincy.  You are correct on ALL points!  Obamacare will never be repealed once it is in force - they'll tweak it from time to time - but it will be the bane of our economy.  As far as I am concerned, this is our last chance to fight it.

If not now...for God's sake - when?

Sinkspur:  What if Harry Reid has a stroke?  Or Richard Trumpka and the Unions raise holy hell with the Dems?  Or (gasp) the National Education Association? Or the jihadis (dressed as Code Pink) suicide bomb the Capitol?  More scenarios to come.  It's late.

Imagine if the founders of this great nation said it was just too hard to break away from King George and form our own nation... they could have just rolled over and paid the piper.. thank God they all had spines...

That's pretty much where we are today.

If the republican senators would stand up and fight, it might shake up the news cycle to get more people interested. 
The republican Congress should not fund it , regardless of how the democrat senators vote.
Isn't that the way it's done by the other side?  Do what you want and to hell with the law?

Sounds good to me. Sometimes, it takes a lot of strength to do the right thing. Too often, we have settled for less than what could be, and then, it comes back to bite us.
