Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid finally admitted that ObamaCare is just a step towards a fully government run single-payer health care system. This confession confirms what we already knew, but Reid has never been so honest about the real hidden agenda behind the health care monstrosity.
We must stop ObamaCare before we go down the path of European-style socialized medicine. Here’s the game plan: ObamaCare will be a tragic mess that furthers destroys health care in the United States. The unworkable law will skyrocket health insurance premiums and lead to a bureaucratic rationing of health care. Politicians will then blame the nonexistent “free market” and push for more government control to correct these problems created by government in the first place.
We are frankly running out of time to undo ObamaCare with key provisions set to go into effect on January 1, 2014. After the law is close to fully implemented, it will be incredibly hard to repeal it. If not now, when?
That should mean no more empty and symbolic votes that do nothing. No more members of Congress compromising on principle to appease pro-ObamaCare leadership. More representatives need to take a hard stance on defunding ObamaCare before it’s too late.
The CR may be the last opportunity to stop the ObamaCare train wreck. The current CR that allows funding for the federal government expires on September 30th and must be renewed in order for the federal government to stay fully open. Congressmen should refuse to vote for a Continuing Resolution (CR) that does not defund ObamaCare.
