Senate Must Act to Defund Obamacare, Jim DeMint Says Stop Government Takeover of Health Care

Today the House passed a continuing resolution that funds the government but defunds Obamacare by a vote of 230 to 189.  Earlier in the day, Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint was on America’s Newsroom on FoxNews.  He explained that rather than focus on the politics of Obamacare – or whether or not politicians will win their next election – we should be having a discussion about policy and how Obamacare harms Americans.

DeMint said:

We need to keep bringing people back to the fact that this is devastating to American – maybe the most devastating thing in a generation as far as what it does to, not our healthcare system, but our economy, our culture how we think about ourselves as Americans. At the Heritage Foundation we look at the policy. We research what it’s going to do to the people of this country.  And when they say, ‘okay, you might lose,’ we say, ‘since when do Americans not fight for what’s right because they’re afraid they might lose?’

The House has acted.  Now the Senate must do what is best for America; they must defund Obamacare.

  1. lHere is a thought. The business of Insurance is kinda like a poker game. If you have some change or a backer (ala the company you work for), you can ante -up and play; therefore, you can win or you can lose! If you do not ante-up and play, you are unaffected by the game and you have no affect on the game . Then someone changes the rules and says, you can play AND WIN BUT NEVER LOSE. Fair, just, ??.

    Here;s another guy, been working 70 hours a week digging ditches for the past ei years so he could pay the mortgage payments on his house, pay for his medical insurance, life insurance, etc. and had little left for vacations, dining out, shopping at other than KMart. His neighbor seldom worked.When he did work, much of his pay was spent on booze,, fancy clothes, dining at the finest restaurants but nothing for medical or dental insurance or even life insurance.They both come down with Disease X. Obamacare comes along and our Model Human who spenr thousands of dollars on Med. Insurance gets exactly the same care as his buddy! Fair????]

    Hell NO!

    Worse. yet: Medical Insurance, their companies and their employees, become, merely a bean counting, paper pushing nationalized triage system,
    And you know their “answers” for that.
