Pull the Plug on ObamaCare

Just when you think the news about Obamacare couldn’t get any worse, it does. Check out this CBS headline: “Arizona Obamacare Plan To Jump By 116 Percent.” As I wrote yesterday, Obamacare was built on the lie that the government can do it better. Now it is more expensive and more insurance companies are abandoning the system. In many parts of the country, there is only one provider. Conservatives warned this would happen. The same people who lied to us six years ago now want to “fix” Obamacare. But their idea of a fix is more government, not less.

Hillary Clinton is totally committed to dramatically expanding Obamacare so that the only healthcare option you have is the government. And if you think healthcare is expensive now, just wait until the government tries to make it “free.”

If you want to stop a complete socialist takeover of healthcare in America, if you want to pull the plug on Obamacare, then Hillary Clinton must be defeated this November.

Save The GOP?

I need to address an argument that is increasingly being made by the political experts in Washington. Many are suggesting that conservatives need to write-off the presidential race in order to save the GOP Congress. They claim that divided government will provide the necessary checks and balances against President Hillary.

As I have repeatedly stated, I want a conservative House and Senate to work with President Trump and Vice President Pence. And we are doing everything we can to help elect more pro-family, pro-life conservatives.

But the idea that this Congress can and will stop Hillary Clinton is one I find hard to take seriously. In fact, some congressional Republicans are already talking about how they expect to work WITH her.

But why would the GOP leadership be any more effective in stopping Hillary Clinton than they were in stopping Barack Obama?

They haven’t stopped Obama from freeing suspected terrorists in Gitmo.

They didn’t stop him from gutting our immigration laws. Illegal immigrants are pouring across the border.

They haven’t stopped him from purging Christianity from the military.

They haven’t stopped Obama from bringing in an ever-increasing number of Muslim immigrants, an untold number of whom are radical Islamic sympathizers.

They haven’t stopped him from blocking Christians from coming in.

They weren’t able to stop him from signing a terrible nuclear deal with the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism. Think about that!

They didn’t stop two left-wing Supreme Court nominees.

My friends, I understand that a Republican Congress would not pass the worst aspects of Hillary’s agenda. And that is worth something.

But the current GOP leadership has surrendered the power of the purse. It is inconceivable to me that they would risk a government shutdown over Obamacare or funding of Planned Parenthood.

And Obama’s repeated abuse of executive power has given Hillary Clinton the roadmap to govern without Congress. In fact, she is promising to go even further than Obama in the use of executive power.

If you REALLY want to stop Hillary Clinton, the only effective way to do that is to stop her at the ballot box by voting for the Trump-Pence ticket.
