Obama and his "progressive" ilk know full well that Obamacare is a disaster, and will damage the economy, hurt the American people, and ultimately fail, as all big government schemes do. Their real and "final solution", when it becomes obvious that Obamacare has failed, is total government control of the health care system, through universal socialized medicine or other similar scheme. The term "final solution" is appropriate, given the rationing that will occur under the death panels.
Obamacare will fail worse than the government-run U.S. Post Office, which is running a 6 billion dollar deficit yet again. Forcing America away from its founding classical liberal principles of individual liberty, protection of private property, and self-reliance, these modern Marxists ignore what has made this country great, and follow the theories that every failed and despotic nation in history has followed.
The failure of the Senate RINO Republicans (McConnel, Cornin, McCain etc.) to help Ted Cruz's heroic effort stop this unwanted monstrosity is shameful, and more proof that the Republican leadership is politically bankrupt, and a full partner to this "progressive" scheme.
But it can still be stopped. This is from Jim & Lisa Woods, of the Medina County (Ohio) Friends and Neighbors:
"As expected, Harry Reid was able to prevail against Senator Ted Cruz's filibuster, limiting it to 21 hours. That was 21 hours more for our side to present the case against Obamacare to the "low information voter" through a largely unwilling news media.
Later this week, Reid will take a vote for Cloture on the House Continuing Resolution to fund the government (except Obamacare). That is a key vote that we desperately want to influence, in order to force the Senate to negotiate with us. If we lose that cloture vote, the Senate can strip out the language exempting Obamacare from government funding with as few as 51 votes, instead of 60.
We applaud the Republican National Committee and the Ohio Republican Party's have come up with full-throated support of Senator Cruz, and call upon Senate Leadership to honor the position not only of the overwhelming majority of Republicans, the clear majority of Americans, and now even the leadership of the Party organizations. It is Senators McConnel and Cornyn, who are "off base".
I have a hard schedule conflict and will close this with a cut & paste from Tea Party Express who provide contact information I have not seen before. Please use it, and pass this along to everyone you know so that they will make contact as well. It does make a difference!
We Need Your Help Tonight as Time is Short Friends,
Earlier today, Senator Ted Cruz concluded a 21 hour and 19 minute filibuster (not official) on the Senate floor. He pulled an all-nighter to fight for the American people and protect us from the real life nightmares of Obamacare.
For over 21 hours, while most Americans slept peacefully and not at all concerned about freedom and liberty, Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee courageously debated Obamacare on the floor of the US Senate.
That's right! They debated a government run healthcare program that affects every single American. You would think that most Senators would have welcomed the debate. Yet, only 7 Senators stood united on the Senate floor with Ted Cruz.
The Republican Leadership in the Senate didn't even stand with Cruz.
Senator McConnell's campaign manager said in a radio show today, that what Cruz was doing was irrelevant.
Senator Cornyn didn't bother going to the floor of the Senate to support the junior Senator from his own state of Texas! Disgraceful.
So, while Senate Republican Leadership got their beauty sleep, Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and 6 others, debated the Obamacare law on the floor of the US Senate.
Because this is the same bad law that was passed 3 years ago and is STILL NOT READY for prime time. Not only is it not ready for prime time, it gets worse with each passing day.
This is the very same law that the President has changed via executive fiat to exempt big business, special interests and most recently, big government. He is trampling the US Constitution to hand out the goodies and exempt his friends. What about you and I?
Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee know how bad Obamacare is for the American people, the economy and our healthcare system. They want to stop the train wreck that is scheduled to hit in just 6 short days.
But these constitutional warriors in the US Senate, cannot stop this train wreck without our help.
This is where we are right now...straight from the office of Senator Cruz:
Following Sen. Cruz's remarks, the Senate voted on cloture on the motion to proceed to the bipartisan House-passed bill Continuing Resolution, H.J. Res. 59, that funds the government while defunding Obamacare. This vote was just an initial procedural step to continue debate before the final cloture vote to end debate on the House bill, which is expected later this week. Sen. Cruz voted for cloture on the motion to proceed, which passed 100-0, and will vote against final cloture on the bill. Opposing final cloture is crucial to protecting the House bill and ensuring that Sen. Reid cannot add Obamacare funding into the House bill with gimmicks and a simple majority vote. We have asked all week for you to step up to the plate and help this effort. You have done exactly as we asked.
But, IT IS NOT ENOUGH. We need more calls, tweets and Facebook messages NOW.
We need you to use all tools available to get all Republican Senators and Democrats on our team. They can stand with the people or stand with Harry Reid. Their choice.
They must be told that by voting with Harry Reid and cloture, they will be giving up the fight to defund Obamacare. The passage of cloture will make it possible for Reid to add back in the Obamacare funding with only 51 votes - which he already has.
Call each and every Senator listed below and do these three things.
1. Tell the Senators, A VOTE FOR CLOTURE IS A VOTE FOR OBAMACARE!
2. Ask them, if Obamacare is so wonderful, why is the President's administration, Members of Congress, and their staffs not subject to the same law? They are exempt from the same law of which you and I are subject.
3. Ask them how they will vote for cloture. Yes or No?
When the American people cried out for a leader, Senator Cruz courageously answered the call. He is standing for us and we must stand with him.
The vote could come as early as tomorrow or as late as Saturday, so please start calling, tweeting and posting to Facebook now.
Time is running out and this may be our last great hope to save America from Obamacare.
Start the calls and forward everyone you know. It is not to late to call tonight!
