As even some of its most liberal supporters have admitted, ObamaCare is a “train wreck.” The Obama Administration admitted as much when it made the decision to break the law by delaying ObamaCare’s employer mandate and eligibility verification for individual exchanges.
However, President Obama and Senate liberals are more determined than ever to force this disastrous and vastly unpopular law on American families. We need you to urge conservatives in the House and Senate to stand strong and defeat the law once and for all!
The House of Representatives has voted 38 times to repeal ObamaCare, but Harry Reid Senate liberals keep blocking repeal.
Senate conservatives, led by Mike Lee of Utah and Ted Cruz of Texas, have taken a bold stand and have declared that conservative legislators must commit to defunding ObamaCare through the upcoming Continuing Resolution.
Because the Senate has refused to pass a sensible budget, the government has been operating on a series of Continuing Resolutions, which keeps government running at its current funding levels.
Conservatives are urging a Continuing Resolution that will continue all funding at current levels but will defund ObamaCare implementation.
This is a very heavy lift, as liberals are threatening a government shutdown over the issue, and conservatives are still haunted by the last time they took a stand that ended in an unpopular government shutdown in 1995. We need you to strengthen their spines!
As conservative Senators state in this letter (that we encourage you to sign) sent to Senator Reid, “If the administration will not enforce the law as written, then the American people should not be forced to fund it.”
Time is running out on efforts to stop ObamaCare. On October 1, 2013, open enrollment begins for the law’s massive new entitlements, including the new subsidized exchanges and Medicaid expansion. Once those kick in, it will be nearly impossible to undo ObamaCare.
ObamaCare is already increasing premiums, destroying jobs and reducing work hours, not to mention the denial of freedom and religious liberty this administration is forcing on us. President Obama is pulling out all the stops – legal and illegal – to keep it.
Leadership in the House and Senate seem more concerned about pushing through an amnesty bill for illegal immigrants than stopping ObamaCare’s stranglehold on our economy. We need you to set their priorities straight and tell them to stop pushing amnesty and defund ObamaCare!
There are several steps you can take to bolster your legislators’ courage and to urge them to defund:
- Call your Senators and urge them to sign onto Senator Lee’s letter promising to defund ObamaCare.
- Call your Congressmen and tell them to sign Congressman Mark Meadows’ letter urging House leadership to defund ObamaCare in the upcoming CR.
- Add your name to the conservative Senators’ letter by clicking here and signing the letter.
