Tell Your Senators and Representatives to Delay Obamacare
Over the last several years, holding politicians accountable has become quite the rage in America. In the Beltway, however, this concept is still causing growing pains. Many Members still think co-signing legislation to defund Obamacare is enough – that if the bill comes up for a vote, they will vote for it.
This is no longer good enough. The last, best chance to overturn Obamacare is to delay the law via a Continuing Resolution. The Lee letter in the Senate and the Meadows letter in the House do exactly that – they put Members on the record as standing with the American people against Obamacare. It puts Members on the record as saying they want a government that runs in its entirety with the exception of Obamacare.
How does this happen? Republicans in the House must take a stand and pass a Continuing Resolution that funds the entire government except for Obamacare. But it will take pressure – pressure from the grassroots to Members, and pressure from Members to the GOP leadership. Which means it all starts with you.
Signing onto legislation is good; it tells Republican leadership who supports what bills. However, that provides relatively little incentive for the GOP leadership to bring bills to the floor for a vote the majority of the time.
This is why signing onto the Lee/Meadows letters is so important. It tells leadership who is taking a stand with the American people against Obamacare’s mandates, taxes, and special interest loopholes. We urge you to tell your Senators and Congressman that you want them to sign onto the Lee and Meadows letters, and take advantage of the last, best chance to delay and defund Obamacare.
