Fellow Conservative,

Yesterday, the Senate officially passed legislation to begin the process of repealing Obamacare.

When Harry Reid pushed Obamacare down the American people’s throats in 2010, he had to use a parliamentary maneuver known as budgetary reconciliation.

Normally, it takes 60 votes in the Senate to pass a bill. With Scott Brown’s election in early 2010, Harry Reid wouldn’t have the votes if he tried to push Obamacare through using normal channels. But using the budget reconciliation process, a spending bill can pass the Senate with just 51 votes.

What the Senate did late last night was begin the process of undoing Obamacare using this same complicated maneuver.

President Trump’s goal is to get Obamacare repealed as soon as he takes the oath of office. If not then, then he wants the repeal vote in the immediate days afterward.

The GOP has promised to repeal Obamacare on the first day that they control all of government. Mitt Romney made that promise, so did Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. Now, that opportunity is here and establishment Republicans are getting cold feet.

We have never been this close. Like clockwork, the establishment Republicans are coming out of the woodwork to try to gum it up!

No more GOP excuses! Send your FaxBlast to Congress and DEMAND that they repeal Obamacare on day on of the Trump Presidency, no strings attached!

This is going to be a running theme this year. Congress will get closer and closer to honoring their promises and the same establishment types will come out of the woodwork to stop bills from moving forward.

Whether Congress chooses to repeal and replace or repeal then replace, the fact of the matter is that this law is imploding around us.

Personally, my health insurance premium went up 34% this year and my deductible is so high that I would need to be hospitalized in order to come anywhere close to being able to use my insurance. It’s a mess.

And I’m not alone. Across the board, Americans are feeling the pinch. Insurance premiums are skyrocketing and insurers are withdrawing from the marketplace because there is too much red tape for them to turn a profit.

I don’t know what is worse: living in Arizona and seeing your premiums increase by an average of 110% or living in one of the 974 counties that have only one insurance provider for people to choose from. Yes, you read that correctly. An estimated 31% of counties across the country will be left with just one Obamacare provider this year.

Obama created these monopolies by forcing this monstrosity of a bill through and the American people are suffering as a result.

But this is what I do know: it’s time to bring this across the finish line.

It was opposition to Obamacare that gave the House of Representatives to the Republican Party. Mitch McConnell rode this discontent and took control of the Senate in 2014.

It’s time to call in the promise they gave us. It is time to force Congress to repeal Obamacare, no strings attached!

No more GOP excuses! Send your FaxBlast to Congress and DEMAND that they repeal Obamacare on day on of the Trump Presidency, no strings attached!

  • The establishment Republicans have been offered huge payouts in the tens of millions to not vote to repeal Obamacare. I am sure they have also been threatened with not being invited to be alive in their underground bunkers when the Traitor in
    office currently launches WW3 in which the USA will ultimately lose. COG plans are to be in effect and those not on board with the coming tyranny and deaths of millions of Americans will see themselves and their families faced with the same fate. AIPAC and the Rothchilds want WW3 as they always have and the take down of the USA must progress hopefully without Trump.
