The fight to challenge ObamaCare is over at the Supreme Court. Now, the focal point is Congress - and specifically the U.S. House of Representatives.
House Speaker John Boehner put it bluntly: "This has to be ripped out by its roots. This is government taking over the entire health industry. The American people do not want to go down this path. It has to be ripped out and we need to start over one step at a time."
A growing number of Americans understand that the Supreme Court got this one wrong. And, a clear majority of Americans now support repeal of ObamaCare.
The White House, of course, continues to spin the Supreme Court decision. The fact is the only reason the health care law was held constitutional is because a majority of the Justices declared that the individual mandate - which forces Americans to purchase health insurance - is a tax. And, according to the majority, such a tax provision is constitutional.
Those are the facts. But to the White House, that doesn't matter. White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew refused to acknowledge the penalty is a tax. He won't call it a tax. In fact, he asserted health care law will not result in a tax increase on the middle class, despite a Congressional Budget Office report that it would result in a roughly $27 million increase over the next 10 years.
It is time to stand up and let the House know that it's time to repeal ObamaCare, which represents a massive pro-abortion tax increase on the American people. It violates our religious liberty and is bad policy for America. Add your name to our petition now. Urge the House to repeal ObamaCare when it votes on July 11th.
After his “glib” apology before Congress this week for calling the American people “stupid,” ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber attempted to dodge, duck, dip, dive, and … dodge every substantive question that came his way. He refused to answer even the simplest questions like how much ( millions )
From day one, we have warned that the real danger of Obamacare is not in the 2,700 pages of its text (as bad as they are), but in the hundreds of thousands of pages of rules and regulations that would flow out of that text. This week provides yet another example of that danger, and it is in the...
Yesterday, liberal Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer lambasted Democrats for the political failure of both ObamaCare and the stimulus. While he certainly has not changed his core belief that government can solve all the people’s ills (and said as much), he slammed his party for its political failures.
The lesson we learn from Jonathan Gruber (the MIT professor turned high-paid ObamaCare architect who admitted the Administration deceived the public to pass ObamaCare) is that the Obama Administration will do or say anything to prop up ObamaCare. You know the litany of lies (you can keep you plan,
