Just prior to the “August Recess” Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz along with Representatives Mark Meadows, Tom Graves and others started a battle that would play out over the course of the summer. This isn’t a battle for the weak at heart. No. This is a battle to save America from the Obamacare “train wreck.”
Democrats will stop at nothing to protect the President’s signature legislation, and too many Republicans are afraid to fight. On Tuesday, September 10, 2013, the United States Congress will be back in session for the first full day after the summer break and the American people will be there in full force prepared to express our serious concerns for the future of the American health care system.
- The administration has already admitted that Obamacare isn’t ready by unilaterally (and unlawfully) delaying the employer mandate for a year, effectively protecting Big Business.
- Big Labor Unions who largely supported the law are seeking special exemptions because as Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., pointed out in a letter to Democratic Leaders, “[Obamacare will…] destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.”
- Even Big Government is getting a carve out now that the Office of Personnel Management has outlined a way for the government to subsidize health care premiums for Members of Congress and their staffers.
