It is a safe bet that if any part of Obama’s Health Care Denial and Rationing Program is left standing it will not be recognized by the Czars that wrote it.
While Marxist ideology runs deep through Obama’s veins even Karl won’t be helping him with this loser.
Obama used force, bribes back room deals in the dark and arm twisting to pull it off but it was always DOA in the minds of We the People who rejected it 2:1
To be implemented requires force, and that will not happen.
Already we are seeing the effects of employers cutting workers hours or closing down their operations entirely all for a socialist program that had nothing to do with health care but everything to do with power. The power to grab 18% of the United States’ faltering GDP.
Obamacare can be stopped… by the states. Governors must refuse to comply with HHS’ demand that they make a written declaration by this Friday, November 16, regarding a state-established federal Obamacare exchange. They must stand like Kansas Governor Sam Brownback who said,
“Kansans feel Obamacare is an overreach by Washington and have rejected the state’s participation in this federal program. My administration will not partner with the federal government to create a state-federal partnership insurance exchange because we will not benefit from it and implementing it could costs Kansas taxpayers millions of dollars.” (Politico, Nov 8)
Brownback encourages. Other conservatives less so. House Speaker John Boehner recently discussed repeal with ABC’s Diana Sawyer. Boehner said, “Well, I think the election changes that. It’s pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land.” After conservatives reacted, Boehner had to retweet a retraction. Avik Roy at Forbes wrote, “The President’s re-election, and the Democrats’ gains in the Senate, mean that Obamacare is here to stay. The conservative movement to repeal the law has been defeated.” And NCPA’s John Goodman wrote, “The election of Barack Obama guaranteed that his signature piece of legislation – health reform – can now go forward. Republicans are powerless to stop it.”
I disagree. The battle has shifted to the states where Republicans seized 30 governorships – the most since 2000 according to the Republican Governors Association. Even the lobbyists are shifting from a D.C. focus to a state focus. Plus, 14 states have passed state health freedom laws that prohibit cooperation with or implementation of the PPACA. The Washington Times underscores the necessary state action: “We’re stuck with Obamacare in the wake of Tuesday’s vote, which makes state efforts to block implementation critical.“
Obamacare has more chinks in its armor than a turtle without a shell. As a result, state governors and legislators can inflict great damage. The following amazing chink was discussed by a Goldwater Institute attorney during a Tennessee-based webinar on Monday (at which I was a panelist). It’s only 10 lines long in the 950-page version of the law:
“No individual, company, business, nonprofit entity, or health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage shall be required to participate in any Federal health insurance program created under this Act (or any amendments made by this Act), or in any Federal health insurance program expanded by this Act (or any such amendment), and there shall be no penalty or fine imposed upon any such issuer for choosing not to participate in such programs.”
Let that sink in. No one is required to participate.
Obama won a second term, but Obamacare is in big trouble. Ballot initiatives to assert state control over health care passed with 77% support in Wyoming, 62% in Missouri and 59% in Alabama. And yesterday, Governor Bentley from Alabama announced he wouldn’t do the exchange, and suggested a “significant number” of governors would also refuse. Meanwhile 30 more anti-Obamacare lawsuits are waiting in the wings. So, let’s not be discouraged. Let’s work hard to help States stop national health care.
Our motto: Resist. Repeal. Reclaim.
