Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on Fox News recently to discuss the resignation of Kathleen Sebelius as head of the Department of Health and Services after her disastrous role in overseeing Obamacare. Cruz also responded to news that Iran’s choice for U.N. Ambassador has been rejected by the United States.
While Obamunists in the federal government continue to high five each other over reaching the mythical number of 7.1 million enrollees, parents in New Jersey are learning that Obamacare has just destroyed health care coverage for their children.
In light of Obama’s abortion mandate in Obamacare, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) has offered the Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act.
This bill will require that Obamacare exchanges disclose which insurance plans pay for abortion and the abortion fee or surcharge taken in order to build a fund to pay for abortions. The surcharge is required by Obamacare and is at least $1 a month.
It is amazing how the Obama Administration reached its magical number of 7+ million Obamacare enrollees on March 31st – the night that open enrollment finished. Of course, there’s no reason to believe anything Obama or his surrogates say about this because they’ve repeatedly lied about the numbers or denied they knew what the numbers
Obamacare has been mired in problems from the beginning. The poorly planned roll out of exchange websites left citizens frustrated and confused. In fact, as of February, 22,000 Americans have filed requests to fix errors in their health insurance coverage that occurred because of website glitches. A report by the Obama Administration said at least 11 million people will see their premiums increase. Earlier this month, the Administration extended the March 31 deadline for enrolling (for those who tried to enroll during the open enrollment period, but did not complete the process) in Obamacare to be sometime mid-April on a date yet to be determined.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is a GING-PAC endorsed lawmaker who has taken a strong stand against Obamacare’s anti-Christian abortion mandate and the violation of religious liberty in this health care law.
Bachmann spoke out in defense of religious freedom and the First Amendment in a press conference and speech on the House floor shortly before the Supreme Court heard oral arguments against Obamacare recently.
Today is truly a crucial day for religious liberty and whether those rights will remain viable under our Constitution. It is for this reason that I felt compelled to listen to the oral arguments at the Supreme Court building. Clearly, every American should be free to live and work in accordance to their peaceable religious beliefs without having to beg the government to allow them to do so.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) stood in front of the Supreme Court yesterday in freezing weather to inspire religious freedom advocates on the Hobby Lobby abortion mandate case.
Sen. Cruz told the crowd: “There is a reason why the first protection in the Bill of Rights was the right to religious freedom.”
Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) was one of only three U.S. Senators who was present in the courtroom for oral arguments in the Hobby Lobby abortion mandate case.
After the oral arguments, Sen. Blunt and his colleagues Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), and Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) led a colloquy on the Senate floor in defense of America’s first freedom – freedom of religion.
