As of Labor Day morning, more than a million people have signed the “Don’t Fund It [ObamCare]” petition.
I can’t win this fight. There is no elected politician in Washington who can win this fight. The only people who can win this fight are you. The only people who can win this fight are the American people rising up in overwhelming numbers and saying, ‘We want our country back.’
For these reasons, we will not support any continuing resolution or appropriations legislation that funds further implementation or enforcement of Obamacare.
Former Senator DeMint and Heritage Action spent the last two weeks of August conducting a “Defund Obamacare Town Hall Tour.”
- There is bipartisan agreement that ObamaCare isn’t working.
- Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, a Democrat architect of the law, calling ObamaCare implementation, “a huge train wreck.”
- James Hoffa, head of the Teamsters, wrote a letter to former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid saying ObamaCare is destroying the 40-hour work week that is the back bone of the middle class.
The fund is also running radio ads calling for Senators Alexander, Flake and McConnell to oppose all funding for ObamaCare.
All in all a great effort by all concerned. But in the words of Hans Solo, don’t get cocky. Unfortunately the biggest impediment to defunding ObamaCare is the GOP establishment. Keep spreading the word about defunding ObamaCare and how it can be accomplished.
