The Republican controlled House of Representatives have refused to take up the Continuing Resolution passed by the Senate that would fund the government until November 15th, in fear that it would pass without defunding the Presidents signature law, the Affordable Care Act. Speaker John Boehner has been quoted as saying that he doesn't have the votes to pass a "Clean CR" and yet, 22 GOP Members have public ally expressed support for the "Clean CR."

Tune in tonight as we review the Tea Party game plan to overturn the will of the American people and the voice of the United States Supreme Court.  In the same manner that GOP strategists held a secret meeting after the 2008 election to make the President a "One-Term" President, a similar meeting was held to defund the Presidents signature piece of legislation known as ObamaCare and to use this tactic to hold up the federal budget and resist extending the debt ceiling preventing the government from paying its bills. 

So, join us in this provocative discussion for truth and understanding as we join together to make a difference in the African American communities.
