You can ensure Obamacare is defunded.
Find out how.
As a committed conservative you know the gravity of Obamacare. The big-government program will drive our nation further into debt; increase taxes on hard-working Americans like you; and decrease the quality of the care you receive.
This bill must be stopped. And our last opportunity to stop it is in September.
That’s because most of the law–including the mandate and the government-run “exchanges”–start operating in 2014. And the government’s fiscal year begins October 1.
Conservatives in Congress have proposed using the fight over a key budget bill, called the continuing resolution, to strip funding from this law. But Establishment Republicans and special interests in Washington are resisting this plan.
Our plan to win the defunding fight
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) joined our Defund Obamacare tour.
There are three steps to defunding Obamacare:
- Unite conservative lawmakers in support of defunding
- Attach legislation to defund Obamacare to a “must pass” spending bill
- Ensure that legislation, with the defunding provision, passes in the House and Senate
More than 80 Representatives have now signed on to Rep. Mark Meadows’ plan to defund Obamacare this September. If we can get a majority of House Republicans on board with the Meadows plan, we can force Speaker Boehner to act on defunding.
Though it may sound simple, this will be very hard to execute.
The Washington Establishment doesn’t want us to succeed
The media, Washington insiders, and political kingmakers don’t want to even think about defunding Obamacare, much less take a stand on it. They argue that Republicans shouldn’t fight for defunding because there’s a chance we might lose.
On top of that, liberals are deploying their vast resources to defend President Obama’s signature law. Powerful groups like MoveOn.org and President Obama’s own Organizing for Action are raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep Obamacare on track.
But since when have the American people backed down from a fight because there is a chance we might lose?
This is a fight for principle. This is a fight for the bedrock ideals America was founded upon.
For our nation to flourish, Obamacare must not be implemented. And to prevent implementation, Obamacare must be defunded as the first step towards full repeal.
What Heritage Action is doing to defund Obamacare
We are putting everything we have behind winning this fight and forcing a vote on defunding Obamacare. To do this, we are:
- Rallying thousands of grassroots activists in key Congressional districts. Our Defund Obamacare Town Hall Tour alone drew more than 7,000 activists in just over a week, and we are drawing on our hundreds of thousands of local supporters to join this fight.
- Targeting ads at 100 lawmakers who have failed to stand up against Obamacare–despite their campaign promises.
- Coordinating thousand of calls to members to Congress to get them to vote for defunding Obamacare.
These tactics have worked before. We stopped amnesty in its tracks. We stalled ratification of harmful UN treaties. And we blocked the internet sales tax.
Now it’s time to stop the worst of them all: Obamacare.
Congress has pledged to stop Obamacare since 2010. It’s time they came through and fulfilled their promises.
What you can do to ensure Obamacare is defunded in September
We cannot win the battle for defunding Obamacare without your support. We are putting all our ammunition into this fight and we need you standing side by side with us as we march forward.
Congress will vote on defunding in September. That means we have to have our plan to defeat Obamacare fully funded by then.
America cannot afford Obamacare. Now is our last chance to keep Obamacare from going into effect by stripping funds from the insurance “exchanges,” from the Obamacare Navigators, and from IRS enforcement.
Time is of the essence. Please donate now to ensure we have the resources to fight and win.
