The bill before the House tomorrow (9/19/13) will **fund the entire government** with the EXCEPTION of ObamaCare because 70% of the American people, the unions, and small business owners do not want it.
President Obama has said he will not compromise. Harry Reid is demanding the Senate **refuse to support the funding of the government WITHOUT ObamaCare."
In point of fact, it will be President Obama and Harry Reid who shut down the government by opposing the Continuing Resolution without ObamaCare. But you are right. ***They will blame Republicans for shutting down the government*** and are confident their voting base won't know the difference.
Republicans are standing with 70% of Americans (R, D, I) against ObamaCare. Obama and Senate Democrats are forcing this wildly unpopular law onto the backs of un- and under-employed Americans, union members, small business owners, and ALL tax payers by ***threatening to shut down the government** unless ObamaCare is included.
The tide is turning, especially since union leaders have rebelled since finding out what the law actually contains, and in the face of thousands of full-time jobs (40-hour-work-week) becoming part-time (29 hours) to escape government requirements.
Obama is not helping by (illegally) granting exemptions to one favored group (large corporations, Congress) after another.
Bad law. Needs to be defunded before it becomes set in concrete and destroys the middle class. The deadline is ***October 1.***John Boehner listened to millions of Americans demanding ObamaCare be overturned, and came out yesterday in favor of the CR without ObamaCare. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are fighting the fight in the Senate. Every American affected by this needs to call, fax, or email their representatives and senators and demand the defunding of ObamaCare. It isn't in reality what the president promised the American people.
