I have listened to different commentators express lamentations, derision, and accusations about the House’s decision to defund Obamacare. It seems that no matter what the majority of the American people want, these drones continue to malign Republican/Conservatives for trying to stop a really bad piece of legislation. In my opinion, the Progressives will do whatever it takes to push Obama’s signature legislation, Obamacare, on us. I believe that they have to know it is a bad law–that it will destroy the exceptional healthcare we have enjoyed for decades–but that fact pales in the face of pushing Obama’s agenda.
This law, since it was passed, has been changed hundreds of times. If you stack the pages of this legislation in one pile, it stands taller than a man. No one had read it when it was passed…do we really think anyone has read the entire law, even now that it is scheduled to go into effect in October? If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you…
How did our narcissistic president react to the vote to defund? By whining that the Republicans are “messing with me.” Really? Doesn’t that tell his followers something? Doesn’t that say to a clear-thinking person that Obama is only interested in his own image? Come on, American. My mind keeps going back to a song we sing in church; “Open the blind eyes…”
Yes, we know the Democratically controlled Senate will never go along with defunding Obamacare, yet, I stand firmly behind the brave Republicans in the House, who had the courage to listen to their constituents, and to act on their behalf. After all, isn’t that what they are elected to do? Way too many of our elected officials forget that fact the minute they are elected.

Is Defunding Obamacare a Good Idea?
September 21, 2013 by Jack
To answer this question, you need to answer another one first: What made the American healthcare system the envy of the world? Was it Socialized medicine or was it American exceptionalism? If you can accept that it is American exceptionalism, which doesn’t require much intellectual honesty, then the answer to whether or not defund Obamacare becomes far easier.
If we want to continue having the best healthcare system in the world, repudiating Obamacare is the way to do it. Not only is Obamacare unready for full implementation, it is bad policy. It has been bad policy ever since Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid forced it upon us, with the help of President Obama cutting one unethical deal after the other to garner the votes necessary to make it law.
Now, as it is about to be implemented, TV commentators and other mainstream journalists say that the vote in the House to defund Obamacare will ultimately fail and that the Republicans should never have forced the issue.
I disagree. What was their alternative? To stand by idly and allow the nation to be destroyed? Of course not. It is never wrong to do the right thing, regardless of the outcome of your actions. Voting to defund Obamacare was the right thing to do, and this was the right time to do it.
Not only will the law make us a nation of part-time workers, but it will also fund an additional 10,000 IRS agents—all of whom will have the Lois Lerner mandate to grind us into submission to the will of the executive branch of the government. Let me ask you:
- Is this what we want?
- Do we need more ISR agents and fewer doctors?
- Do we want less privacy and more bureaucracy?
- Do we want higher costs with diminished services?
- Do we want more incompetent leadership from Obama, Pelosi, and Reid and not less?
The answer for most of us is no.
Because nationalized medicine is the Holy Grail of the Progressives, the attacks upon patriotic Americans who stand in their way will be vicious and visceral. Nevertheless, standing our ground by repudiating Obamacare is what we are called to do. Remember, it is never wrong to do the right thing at the right time and the right place. This is our time to stand up and say no to Obamacare, no to the legion of IRS miscreants this law will empower, no to the President, and no to Progressivism. Future generations will bless you for weathering the onslaught and for being resilient and strong.
