Keep it up folks! Keep it UP!
YOU DID IT!
Over 1 million freedom-loving Americans have now signed the petition urging Congress to defund Obamacare!
Thank you for your support.
The calls to defund Obamacare have grown so loud that some of the Republican senators who support funding for Obamacare are now trying to trick their constituents into thinking they oppose it.
DO NOT BE FOOLED.
These senators are planning to vote for the continuing resolution (CR) later this month that funds Obamacare's implementation and enforcement, but they don't want you to know it.
Here are a few of the deceptive tricks being played by the top Obamacare Republicans in the U.S. Senate:
MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY) -- Senator McConnell is the Republican Leader yet he refuses to lead the effort to defund Obamacare. In fact, he's working against it. McConnell voted to fund Obamacare earlier this year and he pressured four Republicans to remove their names from the defund pledge supported by Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX).
So what's Mitch McConnell telling voters in Kentucky?
He says we should fight to defund Obamacare "at every angle." That's not even close to what he is doing. He also poses for photo ops with a massive tower of Obamacare regulations and says we should pull Obamacare out "root and branch." But when it comes time to vote, he plans to support funding for the enforcement of those very same regulations.
JOHN CORNYN (R-TX) -- Senator Cornyn also voted to fund Obamacare earlier this year and he refuses to oppose funding for it now.
What's John Cornyn telling voters in Texas?
Senator Cornyn is running misleading online advertisements like the one shown here, which claims he supports defunding Obamacare. He hides behind his symbolic support for a defunding bill, but never discloses the fact that he won't sign the defunding pledge and plans to vote for Obamacare funding later this month.
LAMAR ALEXANDER (R-TN) -- Senator Alexander also voted to fund Obamacare earlier this year and he refuses to oppose funding for it now.
What's Lamar Alexander telling voters in Tennessee?
He's running a new campaign commercial that says he "led the conservative fight against Obamacare." This is the same Lamar Alexander who supported the individual mandate long before Obamacare was written. If anything, he helped pave the way for Obamacare. And if Senator Alexander truly opposed Obamacare today, he would be leading the fight to stop its funding before October 1st.
These Obamacare Republicans can't defend their liberal position so they have decided to lie about it.
DO NOT BE FOOLED.
If a senator votes to fund Obamacare, they're for Obamacare. And if they're for Obamacare, they're against us.
It's time for Republicans to back up their talk with action.
Obamacare is unaffordable, unworkable, unfair, and it starts in just 28 days. Republicans can stop it if they refuse to fund it.
