When President Obama was selling ObamaCare in 2009, one of the many false promises he made was that taxpayers would not be forced to pay for abortions under the law. But now, for the first time in American history, Uncle Sam is in the abortion business. The law contains a loophole that is forcing taxpayers to pay for ending innocent life. The law must be fully repealed, but in the meantime, that loophole must be closed.

This week, Americans for Limited Government reported that more than 250,000 Virginians will lose their health insurance due to Obamacare. PreferredOne, the health insurance company that covers 60% of the policies in the state’s Obamacare exchange, is leaving the state. Why? They claim that it’s not administratively or financially sustainable. In other words, they would go broke if they continued to deal with Obamacare.
Despite a promise President Obama made to lawmakers and the American public in a special joint session of Congress on healthcare reform that “under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortion” a new report released by the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) today documents massive new public funding of abortion in the President’s healthcare law.
Whether we’re talking about President Barack Obama’s threats to take executive action on immigration, the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) blatant executive regulatory overreach, or Health and Human Services (HHS) cherry-picking which ObamaCare provisions to enforce and which to delay – this president and his administration have a very bad habit of ignoring the law and the Constitution.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave a powerful keynote speech before a crowd of conservatives at the Defending The American Dream convention in Dallas on Saturday. During his speech, he covered Obamacare, the lack of border security, and the threat that the Islamic State (ISIS) poses to American national security interests.
The following has been reprinted from the Congressional Prayer Caucus. It outlines the latest revisions in Obamacare over the HHS abortion, sterilization, and contraception mandate being forced upon Christian business owners, and Christian institutions. The abortion mandate was never in the original legislation but was added through regulations by the disgraced former Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, a rabid pro-abortion zealot.
The Obama Administration clearly has no concern about religious liberty or the First Amendment. It only cares about paying off its abortion industry donors by forcing all Americans to subsidize the killing of unborn babies.
Rob Maness, a retired Air Force Colonel, is running against Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu. On Friday, he filed a complaint against Landrieu alleging that she doesn’t have legal residency in Louisiana. Landrieu lives in a cushy mansion in Washington, D.C., and lists her parents’ home in Louisiana as her place of residence.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was in Ames, Iowa over the weekend to give a keynote speech at the Family Leadership Summit of social conservatives. Cruz told the crowd that he had recently left Washington, D.C. and was glad to be back in America. He told his audience that they can only succeed if they’re not being “namby-pamby, not giving in to the ways of Washington.” He said “We need to stand for life, we need to stand for marriage, we need to abolish the IRS. We need to repeal Obamacare.”
“Today’s D.C. Circuit Court decision should remind this President and his Administration that Congress writes the laws, not the Executive Branch.
“In July 2013 Oklahoma’s Attorney General Scott Pruitt testified before the House Oversight Subcommittee I chair to vocalize state concerns with IRS’s potentially unlawful action regarding state subsidies. The Obama Administration’s rewrite of the law has introduced even greater uncertainty into the health insurance market and may lead to higher premiums in 2015 and beyond as well as hundreds of billions of dollars in unauthorized federal spending. IRS’s unilateral policy change did not pass the ‘smell test’ then, and things haven’t exactly improved at the scandal-plagued IRS since then.
“The problem with America today is that Washington is full of liberals who think government is the solution to every problem. They think that nothing can be solved unless Washington is involved,” she said. “And so they grow our government, every year making it more intrusive and more involved in our lives. Today, government tells us what doctors to see, what kind of light bulbs to use, and in some places, even how much soda we can drink.”
