Defunding Obamacare

Article I, Section 7 of the United States Constitution states that, “All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives.”  Herein lies a final opportunity to do what the Supreme Court failed to do–stop Obamacare which will crush us economically and socially and further destroy our freedom.  

Republican Representatives Jim Bridenstine of OK and Tim Huelskamp of KS are pushing Speaker John Boehner and House Leader, Eric Cantor not to fund The Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.   After the smashing victory over the Democrats in 2010 led by the Tea Party these leaders promised in 2011 to defund the take over of health care in this country.   Now they seem not so inclined.   It may be worth a call to your Representative in the House urging such action.   As noted above they have the Constitutional power to do so.  What appears to be lacking is the nerve to take on the President and the Left wing Press which will certainly get up on their hind legs and howl.

There is a way to do this with some humor and to poke some fun at President Obama who takes himself “oh so seriously” and does not take kindly to persons like Rush Limbaugh skewering him with humor.    In fact, the President has told Republicans not to listen to Rush which ought to lead to listening to  this icon all the more.   If Obama fears Rush (and he clearly does) then when EIB speaks, like the old E.F. Hutton commercial, “Let’s listen.”

I received an e-mail recently about a man who was standing at the Pearly Gates before Saint Peter.   Seeing a huge wall of clocks behind him, the man asked what they were.   Saint Peter answered, “Those are Lie Clocks.  Everyone has one and each time they tell a lie the hands on their clock move.”

Seeing a clock still at 12 he asked whose that was.   “Oh, that is Mother Teresa’s clock.   Her hands never moved.  She never told a lie.”  The man thought that incredible.  He saw another clock with hands barely moved.   He asked who that belonged to.   Saint Peter said that was Abraham Lincoln’s clock and, unlike most political leaders, he told the truth.

Quite naturally the man wondered where President Obama’s clock was.   Saint Peter answered that it was in Jesus’ office where,   “The Lord uses it for a ceiling fan.”

Remember when Obama said he would not sign any health care reform bill that added one dime to the deficit.   We all knew that Obama’s Lie Clock was humming then and his Pinocchio nose growing.  And each report now tells us how much more Obamacare is going to cost than estimates–as is always true of government programs.   As Republicans in the House of Representatives defund Obamacare they can say they are simply helping the President keep his word that his plan will, “Not add one dime to the deficit.” 

Don’t we miss Ronald Reagan for so many reasons–not the least of which was his sense of humor.  When asked what he thought of Walter Mondale’s charges during the 1984 campaign, the President answered, “I think he ought to pay them.”   Let’s have a little fun with President Obama and save the country in the process.   A merry heart is good medicine.
