Jim Martin: “Democrats will have a lot to answer for come November of 2014. Obamacare is shredding the healthcare safety net in this country as the IRS shreds our Constitution. “
(Alexandria, Virginia) — All but two House Democrats voted against full repeal of Obamacare this evening despite the law’s continued failure and the recent exposure of the IRS’s widespread corruption and violation of Americans’ civil liberties. The bill, H.R.45, would have repealed the so-called Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and all other provisions passed in support of its implementation. By a vote of 229-195, the House passed the repeal bill with full GOP support but with only two Democrats voting in favor.
“Members of Congress were given one more chance to get it right, and we salute those who voted to repeal this disastrous and un-American legislation. More concerning is the Democrat party’s near lock-step devotion to Obamacare despite the mountain of evidence demonstrating it is making healthcare worse and more expensive, and will be overseen by a corrupt and lawless bureaucracy who uses the tactics of fear and intimidation to silence their political opponents.
“Just this evening we learn that the IRS bureaucrat who singled out Tea Party organizations for political payback, Sarah Hall Ingram, has been promoted to serve as the top Obamacare official with the IRS, which has the power to review every American’s healthcare choices. What more evidence is needed to demonstrate that Obamacare has nothing to do with healthcare at all, but is just a mammoth bureaucracy designed to exert political power and control over Americans who don’t toe the line of the Obama Administration.
“The stench of this scandal has stained not only the IRS, but the entire tax scheme at the heart of Obamacare. Seniors have opposed Obamacare from the get-go, in large part because we KNEW that concentrating power over the entire nation’s healthcare would lead to inefficiency, waste and abuse. We did not even need to see the law fully implemented to realize just how right we were.
“Democrats have made their choice in siding with corruption, lawlessness and wholesale shredding of the Bill of Rights in their continued embrace of Obamacare and its extensive web of government censorship, control and intimidation.”
