If you fund it, you're for it. 62 days left 'till Continuing Resolution vote — without Obamacare

Updated with slightly adjusted heading...

We have 62 days left to sign this petition which defunds Obamacare while continuing to fund everything else. Last chance. If we don't help Lee and Cruz pull this off, we are forever stuck with this boondoggle.

The fleecing of America

'Obamacare' mandate delay will cost $12 billion, affect one million workers
(Reuters) - President Barack Obama's decision to delay implementation of part of his healthcare reform law will cost [the govt] $12 billion [in "revenue"] and leave a million fewer Americans with employer-sponsored health insurance in 2014, congressional researchers said Tuesday.

CBO—
... the change will still result in a $10 billion reduction in penalty payments that some employers would have made in 2015 for failing to provide coverage next year.

if they do it

correctly, when Obama vetoes it or the Senate fails to bring it up, do to the sequester the House can knock out Obamacare and present a budget without Obamacare at all.

I like the way you think, Joe.

When it comes to 'Congress vs the Presidency', given the right amount of possible votes, there are many ways to skin a cat. Lee, Cruz, and Rand are showing their conviction to use all Constitutional means, including filibuster, to do what they were hired to do!!

But wait! Where's their support?

Unbelievable.

I don't protest against the

I don't protest against the Lee and Cruz offensive against Obamacare, and know it's only going to be symbolic, but I want Obamacare fully funded and implemented. Obamacare is the greatest device ever invented to destroy the overpriced medical industrial complex completely, and aids in the total bankruptcy of the Federal Government. I did the math and that's how it works out in the end.

Ohhhh. Now I see what you and

'Dr. No' are saying...yes...implement it. Meaning: Let the Vets and Registered Nurses become the doctors on a shoe-string wage; Bring on the so-called death panels; Unsanitary hospitals; Waiting lines; Public Access to everyones' medical records; Letting the IRS determine whether you, personally, have adequate govt approved coverage, even tho you don't know what your income will be for the next year, etc, etc, etc.

Yes, that should show them how awful Obamacare is and then they will...what? Ask that it be repealed, like all the other tyrannical alphabet agencies of un-elected political hacks feeding off the tax-payers' trough? How's that worked out?

IT'S ALREADY BEEN IMPLEMENTED AND HAS FAILED. Only a handful of states have agreed to expanding medicare.

It boggles the mind, the difficulty of even reforming such a monolithic disaster once it's implemented. After all, it's not about healthcare. It's all about growing an all powerful, centralized govt and stealing our freedom.

Sign the petition, Michael, pretty please.

For all intent and purposes, our govt has been bankrupt

for more than most of our lives. How is the implementation of Obamacare going to destroy something already destroyed? Because -- it could get a lot worse with Obamacare, ready or not... Because they know...

Some people still have a pot to piss in and Obamacare will certainly complete that three-legged stool...NSA, IRS, Obamacare...Voila! total tyranny...no more Bill Of Rights. Game - set - match.

This is about the Constitution... and Constitutional procedure, the likes of which we haven't seen in a hundred years. So much is going on now. When was the last time in your life, you can remember 3 congressmen who went to DC and did what they campaigned on?? (Not including Ron Paul?)

I'll bet if it was Ron Paul, instead of, Rand Paul, DP would be all over this and everyone would be scrambling to sign the petition.

At this point, let Obamacare

At this point, let Obamacare happens. When/if it fails, it will never be brought again as a viable option.

Yeah--like the anti-second amendment legislation stopped?

And 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th?

Are you too young to remember 'Hillarycare'??

Which part of 'No' are you advocating, 'Dr.'? You sound more like 'Dr. Yes.' here.

Don't quite get your point.

Don't quite get your point. Has Obama passed any anti-2nd amendment legislation?

My point is, that it is clear that the American people want this. The House has tried a multitude times and hasn't been able to repeal it. Obama won the 2012 election based off this program, unquestionably. This idea has been won in all three branches of government, whether you like it or not.

Allow this program to be tried and then failed. Then the American people will truly see how a program like that could never work.

Hillarycare has no relevance to this. It was never passed.

Uh..IT'S ALREADY FAILED.. What's left to find out?

It can't even be implemented on time because too many states have opted out of the medicare expansions. Consequently, Obamacare, can't be funded as promised.

Not only that, a one year delay will cost the govt $20 billion dollars -- $10 billion in one year from lost "revenue" -- that being, mandated fines from businesses who don't provide employees coverage because the fine is cheaper than the coverage!

It's already a monumental disaster/failure. DE-funding it now will not only save a million people losing their insurance, it'll save Billions of Dollars. The sooner they kill it the sooner they can start over with sensible reform.

Even Obama admits that a couple of billion dollars, when added up over time, amounts to serious money.

IT HAS ALREADY FAILED. Just because the uninformed don't know it, doesn't count.

Cool cat

pic! Thanks for signing...Personally, I'm not a signer of petitions...I hate them...but this one is a no-brainer. Cruz, Lee, Rand, they are doing exactly what they were hired to do: Get rid of Obamacare! Not to get full support would really be a tradgedy.
