Defunding Obamacare - Action needed this week

Defunding Obamacare (PALLONECARE)

Your action is needed today and throughout this week!

Here's an overview of what's happening...

The House is considering a "Continuing Resolution (CR)" to fund the federal government from March to September.  In the bill are proposed earmarks for ObamaCare's implementation. The House is not voting on any bills until late in the day so you have the opportunity to call today to make your voice heard!

  •            House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) promises, "One way or the other" there will be no funding for ObamaCare in the CR.
  •            Representative Steve King (R-IA) has prepared language to completely defund healthcare "reform," which he has promised will be added to the CR.
  •            Representative Denny Rehberg (R-MT), the Chairman of the Labor, Health and Human Services Subcommittee, which controls the purse strings for ObamaCare, has also declared his intention to defund the law.
  •            Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) has introduced a bill preventing the IRS from hiring the extra agents needed to enforce the individual mandate in ObamaCare. As you probably know, the IRS is slated to become the "ObamaCare enforcement agency."
  •            And Speaker John Boehner's aide said this about the upcoming battle: "We will use every means at our disposal to stop this job-destroying law."

The vote on the Continuing Resolution and its "defunding amendment" is expected this week!

BUT defunding of Obamacare is NOT in the Continuing Resolution currently in process!


Since the defunding language is in a separate amendment, you need to call the GOP members of the House Rules Committee (where the first vote is expected in the next 24 hrs) immediately to  urge them to support Rep. Steve King's amendment to defund Obamacare.


The GOP members of the Rules Committee, and their office phone numbers are:


Pete Sessions, TX-32 (202) 225-2231


Virginia Foxx, NC-5 (202) 225-2071


Rob Bishop, UT-1 (202) 225-0453


Rob Woodall, GA-7  (202) 225-4272


Richard Nugent, FL-5 (202) 225-1002


Tim Scott, SC-1 (202) 225-3176


Daniel Webster, FL-8 (202) 225-2176 


Keep the pressure on and hold the GOP to its promises!


Here's what I say when I call,


"Hi I'd like to register my opinion on something.  Please ask the Congressman to support Steve King's amendment to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution.  Thank you."


They may also ask for your name and address.  There's no need to dodge this question.  Just answer politely and move on to the next call.


The goal is to have such a dramatic volume of calls on the subject that the message is clearly sent.


Then, call our own NJ GOP Congressional representatives to vote 'Yes' on this.
