The best argument against Obamacare anyone has ever
The Obama Administration�s behavior during the first
week of the shutdown has been the best argument against Obamacare
anyone has ever made.
The American people
do not want Obamacare, and they are demanding that Washington act to
protect them from the harmful effects of this unfortunate law.
The president�s response has been to ignore them, allow the government
to shutdown, and then use his power to close national parks and
monuments, stop paying veterans� benefits, and cut off cancer
This is exactly why we should not expand the government�s
power over our health care choices. What power the government has,
it will use � and misuse � to advance its own interests, even if that
means punishing the American people along the way.
message behind the Administration�s shutdown bullying is the same
message sent by his IRS�s abuses of political opponents: do what I say, or
else. This is the abusive, partisan, unaccountable bureaucracy that,
under Obamacare, will soon be running America�s health care
President Obama is not just using the vast powers of his
office as leverage against Republicans � he is abusing his powers as
leverage against the American people.
The scenes of World War
II veterans being shut out of a monument built in their honor should
be a bright red flag warning the American people what an out-of-control
federal government is capable of. Each day brings a new and
more vivid example of why it is critical that we not allow Washington to
reach even further into our most personal and intimate
We now see how determined the president is to expand the power
of the federal government and his willingness to use that power to
harm the country to get what he wants. Congress cannot allow this
to stand and should continue to work to end the shutdown and protect
the American people from Obamacare.
