The Supreme Court has upheld the Obamacare tax. This leaves us only one recourse. The GOP must fulfill its promise to repeal all of Obamacare!
Speaker of the House John Boehner
Majority Leader Eric Cantor
And all Republican Members of the U.S. House of Representatives
We the undersigned demand an end to Obamacare NOW. We cannot wait until after the elections in November. Members of this Congress must be held accountable for this monstrous tax liability and invasion of our freedom. We will render judgment on each Member of Congress when we vote on November 6.
If we wait until next year, it will be argued that too much of Obamacare has already been funded and implemented. We will be given the excuse that to eliminate Obamacare means that people already enjoying “benefits” will have them eliminated, disrupting their lives and finances. That is why Obamacare must be repealed NOW, before there is any further implementation.
We appreciate your promise, Mr. Cantor, that the House will repeal Obamacare on July 11. But what happens then? Repeal will certainly be rejected by Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid. Repeal by the House alone is, unfortunately, an empty gesture. It will not end Obamacare.
Delegate Bob Marshall of the Virginia House of Delegates has given us the solution: “Congressional Republicans’ opposition to Obamacare will be taken seriously by the public only if they vote to defund every part of Obamacare IMMEDIATELY by attaching prohibitions on all thirteen Appropriations bills forbidding the use of any funds to implement any aspect of the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act!”
The House has the power of the purse, and you have the votes to do this. The only question is whether you have the will to do this and stick to it. Do it, and we will support you with our contributions and our campaign efforts. Fail to do it, and we will hold you accountable at the voting booth.
As Delegate Marshall notes, “Virginia’s own James Madison pointed out that the “power of the purse may, in fact, be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon…for obtaining a redress of every grievance, and for carrying into effect every just and salutary measure.” [Federalist Papers, #58]
Use that power!
