Defund Obamacare to save the nation
A very important deadline is looming if we are to avoid another setback to the weak economy. Congress must pass a continuing resolution before Oct. 1 to prevent a government shutdown. This continuing resolution is also the last opportunity to stop the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act better known as Obamacare before it is fully implemented on Jan. 1, 2014. Congress will be back in session Sept. 9 with three weeks to pass a continuing resolution. Now may be the only opportunity to defund Obamacare and stop it from being implemented.
Why should ObamaCare be defunded? People are already paying higher premiums for their health insurance. People are losing employer-provided health insurance. Employers are cutting back full time jobs to part time to avoid the mandates of Obamacare. The growing shortage of medical care providers. And all this before Obamacare is fully implemented. No one knows what the full impact of Obamacare will be on individuals, employers and the medical profession. The best indications we have are two other government-run systems in Canada and Great Britain where care is rationed, people are dying on waiting lists for treatment and the people have no control over their own health care.
The statistics of this recession since 2007 are staggering. Median household income down by 8.1 percent. Fifteen percent of Americans living in poverty, the highest number in the 53 years records have been kept. Food stamp enrollment is up 50 percent and seven of every eight jobs created are part-time jobs.
While we are still waiting for an economic recovery, the added costs of Obamacare could very well be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. It is absolute lunacy to increase spending when we are drowning in debt. Contact your legislators now while they are debating the continuing resolution and demand they defund Obamacare. If this opportunity is missed we will have to live with Obamacare whether we like it or not.
