Bill O’Reilly: Attempts To Defund Obamacare Are Fanatical [Video]

Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly thinks that the GOP’s never-ending attempts to defund Obamacare are downright fanatical, and whether you agree or disagree with his point, most folks feel that there are more pressing matters to deal with.

Every problem plaguing the country right now seems to be coming to a head this week: Excessive spending, the debt ceiling, Obamacare’s troubled implementation, and the ever-looming threat of government shut down.

Making matters worse are internal conflicts within the GOP, tearing the rift within the party wider every day, sorting most into two distinct categories: Unreliable and unpredictable moderates (often called RINOs by conservatives) and extreme, directionless-yet-impassioned self-styled Tea Party patriots.

The latter, according to O’Reilly, have become “fanatics,” due primarily to their single-minded obsession with defunding Obamacare. Which, O’Reilly says, isn’t even possible at this point.

“Fanaticism on the right is also harming the country,” he said during the “Talking Points Memo” section at the front of Thursday’s The O’Reilly Factor.

“There is no way Obamacare is going to be defunded. It is not going to happen.”

O’Reilly then brought on two guests to talk about the issue, one of which was Tea Party Express chair Amy Kremer, who advocates defunding the program. She said that stopping the Affordable Care Act is indeed priority No. 1, and pointed to the constant delays plaguing the overhaul as evidence that it is flawed.

Still, O’Reilly says it’s a waste of time.

“What you are trying to do…is impossible,” he said. “Do you not know that? I just think it’s destructive to your cause.”

  1. Costa Rica's Call Center

    Will the delayed start date of OBAMACARE affect the US unemployment rate in 2015? The U.S. healthcare reform is intended to pressure large and small employers through force and taxation. Can it produce the desired results?

    OBAMACARE, also known as the, "Affordable Care Act (ACA)", was enacted in 2010 with positive intentions. The end result will show North American companies deciding to outsource appointment setting, sales, lead generation and customer support jobs offshore to stay competitive or risk going out of business. Many business owners will hire a nearshore employee who is 100% qualified and dedicated for their project.

    Bilingual companies are claiming that their bottom line will increase since ESL call center employees in Costa Rica are as effective as transitional in-house staff for half of the cost. This proven strategy will give small to medium sized companies the option to scale up their BPO staff without getting caught in the Obamacare challenge next year.
