Last week, House Republicans stood strong to keep the government open and defund Obamacare. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for their friends in the Senate, many of whom sided with Harry Reid instead of their constituents.
Now the fight shifts back to the House. Once again we the people need to call on them to once again stand together and stay strong. Unfortunately, it appears the House may not fight to restore the language to defund Obamacare in the CR. So we once again need you to step up and show them what happens when like minded patriots stand together!
We have a tremendous fight on our hands. Once again we are being called terrorists, anarchists, and tea baggers. Did you know that foul-mouthed Senator Mikulski called supporters of Senator Cruz "tea baggers in his Tea Party." and then she called MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell from the Senate floor. Well that is not shocking we all know who MSNBC works for.
John Boehner and leadership now have a few options. 1) Boehner could bring the Senate's version of the bill to the House floor, and rely on Democratic votes to pass it. This would avert a shutdown. However he would then alienate House conservatives and jeopardize his speakership. 2) The House could add some kind of language on Obamacare. Perhaps a one-year delay, or perhaps, as John McCain suggested Friday, language proposed by David Vitter that bars lawmakers, President Barack Obama, and administration members from receiving federal subsidies for health insurance. This move would look to satisfy House conservatives looking to do something about Obamacare. But depending on the specifics of what's offered, Boehner would likely face defections from both the left and right. It would also likely cause another round of ping-pong between the House and Senate, and a government shutdown. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he won't accept anything that touches Obamacare. 3) The House could attempt to punt the government-funding debate slightly down the road by say a one- or two-week extension. But it's not clear if there would be enough support for this. And it has the potential to cause a number of different problems, however, as it would push back the government-funding even closer to the debt-ceiling debate.
We understand that this seems to be a never ended fight, however isn't our freedom from single payer insurance worth it. We must make use of every single minute. Please, take time out of your day to contact the Senators listed on their social media outlets. They must hear the voice of the people and know that we will hold them accountable for their actions. I know that many of you are already feeling the negative effects of Obama's "Unaffordable He-Could-Care-Less Act'. But, if we are going to win this battle, then we need your support. Can you give up $5, $25, $50 or more to help us in the fight against this corruption?
Politics is a dirty game, ladies and gentlemen. If that is not evident based upon what happened to Senator Ted Cruz, then I don't know how I can make it more clear. What is your freedom worth to you? What is it worth to you to not be made by government to purchase a product. Stand with us. The future of our republic depends on it.
Let them hear you say we DO NOT WANT OBAMACARE! We will update you Monday morning with a list of House members that need to be called, emailed, Facebook'd and Tweet'd!
