Your Voice Needed to Stop ObamaCare

September 19, 2013   ·   By   ·   1 Comments

From my mailbox today:



Yesterday we learned that the House Leadership was going to adopt the strategy to pass a Continuing Resolution that funds the entire government and stops funding for Obamacare. While this is encouraging news, we must not think that this battle is over. Between now and the end of September, we need to do everything to put pressure on the House Republicans to stand strong. The only way we win this battle to stop Obamacare is if they don’t blink.

Over the next several days we will be making calls to action. We need to make as many phone calls as we can. This is how we convinced the House Leadership to get on board with the American people and right now it’s the only way we’re going to have a chance to stop Obamacare!

What you need to know about the rest of this fight:

  1. Get Democrats on board: We need to do what we can this afternoon and tomorrow morning to get as many House Democrats on board with this legislation. There are 35 who voted to delay the Employer mandate and/or the Individual mandate. These Democrats have admitted that Obamacare is not ready - so it should be a no-brainer for them to support this Continuing Resolution. (Find the list below)
  2. Verify then Trust: Right now it appears as though the House Leadership will follow through with this Continuing Resolution. The only problem is we’ve seen House Leadership play games before. Even last week they were trying to play games. We have to do everything we can to make sure that the Republicans in the House stand strong and don’t blink. President Obama said he is not willing to negotiate on the debt ceiling; John Boehner should say the same thing about Obamacare.
  3. Pressure the Senate: Once the House passes the bill, we need to put as much pressure on Harry Reid and the Senate as we possibly can. We’ll have those numbers for you later this week and early next week.
  4. House to Stand Strong: Whatever happens in the Senate, the House needs to stand strong and not negotiate on Obamacare. This fight likely won’t die in the Senate. We need to be prepared to shift pressure back to the House after the Senate takes up the Continuing Resolution.

This afternoon and tomorrow: Call these House Democrats and remind them that through their votes on HR2667 and HR2668 they admitted that Obamacare was not ready for the American people and that they should do the right thing tomorrow and stop the funding for it in the Continuing Resolution.

Is the First Amendment Outdated?

Bob Ellis

Is the First Amendment outdated? Leftists seem to think the Second Amendment is outdated, so why not the First...or the Fourth, or the Fifth? In truth, the only Amendment the Left likes is the part of the First Amendment they leverage to broadcast obscenity in public. They've made it pretty clear that they consider the Fourth Amendment to be obsolete, as well as the Tenth Amendment. But they hold particularly vehement loathing for the God-given right to keep and bear arms.


Government of the Squeaky Wheel – Making Everyone Miserable

Paul E. Scates

The foundational argument of those who support ObamaCare is that there are 10 million people without health insurance, and thus, without adequate health care. To them, that sad fact makes it reasonable to believe that every other American citizen should also then have to suffer worse health care than they now have, plus higher insurance rates to pay for the health care of that 3% of the population.

Democrats Trying to Shut Down Private Businesses in Govt Shutdown

Bob Ellis

Not content to make the American people "feel the pain" for not allowing their lordships to force unconstitutional socialist programs on us via inaccessible federal property, President Barack Obama is going out of his way to hammer private businesses to "spread the pain" around so that his lapdogs in the "mainstream" media will have fresh fodder to use against Republicans.


They Don’t Believe Their Own Arguments

David Mann

Why do people use arguments that they don’t believe themselves? Because they know what their conservative opponents’ positions are, and are trying to trick those opponents into a false compromise. They want to look like they're willing to "meet halfway," when they're really not willing to budge from their extreme stance at all. If you mix water and poison, the result isn’t a compromise between the two. The result is poison. And if you try to mix a truth and a lie, the result isn’t a compromise; it’s a lie.

American System of Government: Broken or Working Correctly?

Rick Manning

Many Americans look at what is happening in Washington, D.C. and ask two simple questions, “Is our system broken, and why can’t these politicians just get along?” As tough as it is to believe, the system is not actually broken when the Congress is fighting with itself and with the President, in fact, that is exactly the outcome our founding fathers intended when they built it.


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
