Is Your Senator or Rep. Helping to Defund Obamacare?

The fight over defunding Obamacare within the party is playing out much like the amnesty debate.  The party leaders like McConnell and Boehner are working behind the scenes to undermine conservatives, but they don’t want to publicly oppose the defund effort.  Instead, they have their lackeys, like Rep. Tom Cole and Senator Richard Burr, got the the media and blast conservatives.

As we all know, the only way to disrupt Obamacare before it takes root is by refusing to fund the law in the upcoming budget battle after the August recess.  If we don’t do this now, we will be talking about Obamacare in 10 years from now the same way we talk about the other entitlements.  In other words, it will ostensibly be enshrined into the statist edifice.

So here is where the defund effort stands.  In the Senate, Mike Lee’s defund letter has been signed by 11 other senators: Rubio, Cruz, Inhofe, Risch, Paul, Vitter, Thune, Chiesa, Enzi, Fischer, and Grassley.  Many others have been pressured by McConnell’s guys to stay away from the letter. Additionally, Senators Cornyn, Kirk, and Wicker were pressured to remove their names.

On the House side, Rep. Mark Meadows (NC-11) is the lead author of the defund letter.  We are proud to be one of the first PACs to have endorsed him early on during the 2012 election cycle.  Here is the list of members who signed onto the letter:

Amash, Bachmann, Barr, Barton, Benishek, Bilirakis, Bishop, Black, Boustany, Bridenstine, Brooks, Broun, Chabot, Coble, Cook, Conaway, Daines, Davis (IL), DeSantis, Duncan (SC), Farenthold, Fleischmann, Fleming, Flores, Franks, Gingrey, Gohmert, Gosar, Graves (MO), Hudson, Huelskamp, Huizenga, Hultgren, Jones, Jordan,  Kingston, Labrador,  Lamborn, LaMalfa, Marchant, Marino, Massie, McClintock, Meadows, Messer, Miller (FL), Mulvaney, Neugebauer, Pearce, Poe, Posey, Roe, Rothfus, Salmon, Scalise, Sensenbrenner, Schock, Schweikert, Smith (MO), Stockman, Stutzman, Walberg, Weber, Wenstrup, Wilson, Yoho

Find your member on the list, and if he/she is not on the letter call them up and demand accountability.

Defund or bust!

    CORNYN=PUSH OVER AND AGAINST THE PEOPLE. CORNYN OKAYED JUSTICE KAGAN AND SHOULD HAVE NEVER ALLOWED HER ONTO THE COURT. CORNYN ONLY WORKS WITH HIS OWN SELF INTERESTS IN MIND AND THOSE OF ESTABLISHMENT STATISTS. CORNYN MUST GO. HE IS A BACKSLIDER. EVERY SINGLE SENATOR THAT RAN ON A PLATFORM TO REPEAL OBAMACARE SHOULD HAVE THEIR NAME ON THAT LETTER.

    Cornyn is a turncoat. I called his office in Dallas to ask why he withdrew his name from the letter to defund “obamacare”. Got an answering machine that informed me that they were too busy to answer but leave a phone number and they would call me. Must be awfully busy as that call has not materialized yet. Six years is long enough to “serve” in the Senate after that they become a part of the D.C establishment. We need and will work for those who represent us as does Senator Ted Cruz.
