We have one last chance to defund Obamacare before it begins to be fully implemented. Congress is currently beginning debates on how to keep the government funded beyond September 30th, including the funding of Obamacare.
But the Obama Administration has recently come out and delayed parts of the Obamacare implementation. By delaying the employer mandate and exchange verification rules, the Obama administration is showing just how weak and poorly crafted Obamacare truly is.
Apart from this, Obamacare continues to fund abortions and provides no opt-out for religious business owners and institutions. Already many businesses are asking for injunctions against Obamacare. The Hobby Lobby was recently was given an injunction against this mandate after the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals said that the business’ religious convictions would likely prevail against the US government. The Court compared this issue to a kosher butcher that doesn’t need to adopt non-kosher practices as part of a government order.
Senator Mike Lee has begun a campaign within the Senate to defund Obamacare. Many Senator’s have signed his letter and joined the fight to stop this dangerous bill from being implemented. These Senators are:
- - Jeffrey Chiesa (NJ)
- - John Cornyn (TX)
- - Ted Cruz (TX)
- - Mike Enzi (WY)
- - Deb Fischer (NE)
- - Chuck Grassley (IA)
- - Jim Inhofe (OK)
- - Mark Kirk (IL)
- - Mike Lee (UT)
- - Rand Paul (KY)
- - James Risch (ID)
- - Marco Rubio (FL)
- - John Thune (SD)
- - David Vitter (LA)
- - Roger Wicker (MS)
But these Senators are facing opposition from many within the Senate, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell who is urging them to drop their names from the letter.
This is our last chance to stop Obamacare!
If your Senator is one of the 15 already on the Lee letter then please contact them and commend them for their bravery and urge them to stay strong!
If your Senator has not yet added his/her name to the letter then please contact them immediately and urge that they add their name to the letter.
Senator Ted Cruz (TX) also has a bill to defund Obamacare and many conservative organizations have said they fully support that bill. However, the Cruz bill alone is not enough! Even Senator Cruz signed Lee’s letter. We need each senator to sign both!
