The deceptions never seem to end. Instead of defunding ObamaCare, Republican leaders are still working behind-the-scenes in an attempt to both fool the American people into believing that they oppose ObamaCare while they do everything in their power to ensure that ObamaCare becomes a permanent fixture on the American landscape.
National Review is reporting that House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor is now pushing a scheme that conservative critics are calling a “hocus pocus plan for defunding ObamaCare.” And there is no better time than the present to call our elected officials on the carpet for their trickery. CALL NOW!
Here is how the National Review report reads: “Under the Cantor plan, the House would vote on two measures, the CR and a resolution that amends the CR to defund ObamaCare. Both measures would be brought under a rule that allows the Senate to send just the clean CR to the president, but only after they first vote on whether to defund ObamaCare. If the Senate voted against defunding ObamaCare, they could then pass the clean CR.”
In plain English, House Republican Leaders are proposing to push the Senate to take a token vote on defunding ObamaCare, and then allow the Senate to immediately take another vote to fund ObamaCare. In doing so, they would ensure that ObamaCare is funded while maintaining the illusion to an unsuspecting public that Republicans don’t want ObamaCare funded. Call your representatives now and tell them if ObamaCare funding is passed, you will not vote Republican in 2014!
We are not fooled by this “hocus pocus” scheme and we need to make sure our so-called Republican leaders know that you are not fooled. Within the month, as its implementation progresses, ObamaCare may be so entrenched that it could become nearly impossible to defund and repeal. That is why we need to reinforce our message that the American people want it DEFUNDED NOW! Let the Republican Leaders know that you mean business.
Unless Congress defunds Obamacare by the end of September, the government takeover of health care will begin implementation on October 1.
Defunding Obamacare would:
•Prohibit any taxpayer funds from being spent to implement or enforce Obamacare;
•Keep Americans from losing their current health coverage and being forced into Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges; and
•Allow Congress to consider Obamacare funding separately from regular government functions—there is no need for a government shutdown.
