American Family Association to 2.5 Million Constituents: Flood Capitol Switchboard with Defund ObamaCare Calls
Call Congressman TODAY and Urge to Co-sponsor Rep. Graves’ Defund ObamaCare Bill, H.J.RES. 62
The American Family Association is calling on all of their 2.5 million constituents
to call their U.S. representatives today to urge them to co-sponsor
H.J.RES. 62, an appropriations bill that does not contain any discretionary or
mandatory funding for ObamaCare, also known as the “Affordable Care Act.”
American citizens can obtain their U.S. Representative’s
contact information by going to the American Family Association website.
They can also call the Capitol Hill
switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for their congressman by name, urging him
to co-sponsor H.J.RES. 62.
Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga.) has authored a
Continuing Resolution, the Security, Stability, and Fairness
62), that will defund ObamaCare in its entirety for the
coming fiscal year. This bill will fund the rest of government with
the sole exception of ObamaCare.
Congress must pass a Continuing
Resolution (CR) by September 30 to avoid a government shutdown. The House may vote as soon as tomorrow
on whether to continue funding for ObamaCare or cut it off. This means
that if there is a shutdown of government, it will be done by those who want to
continue to fund ObamaCare. However, the healthcare law has been deemed
so egregious that Congress has already exempted itself from it.
Tim Wildmon, president of the American
Family Association says, “This is the best chance we may ever have to defund
the gargantuan and hopelessly misguided piece of legislation that is ObamaCare.
According to the U.S. Constitution, all appropriations bills must start in the
House. This means that the House can stop ObamaCare in its tracks this week. No
money, no ObamaCare. But we need the participation of millions of Americans to
get the job done. Every voice counts on this one.”
American Family Association lists the reasons that ObamaCare is a bad law:
1) Congressional members have exempted
themselves from it
2) It violates freedom of religion and
conscience by requiring Christian businesses to pay
3) American tax dollars will go to health
care providers who perform abortions
4) It is the leading job-killer in America,
as companies lay off workers because of its
mandates and its
5) ObamaCare forces companies to shift
workers from fulltime to part-time positions
6) It drives up the cost of health care
7) And…the government-run exchanges
reduce access to doctors and hospitals
