    Coalition Letter: Conservative Leaders to Congress: Reject this Washington Deal

    FreedomWorks has signed on to the following coalition letter from the Conservative Action Project.

    Conservative Leaders to Congress: Reject this Washington Deal 

    "Make no mistake, a vote for a deal like this is a vote to move forward with Obamacare."  

    Washington has been abuzz this week with deals and rumors of deals to raise the debt ceiling and end the government slowdown.  While Washington is looking for a deal--the next in a series of political decisions that ignore and delay the tough choices facing our nation--Americans are asking for solutions.  The American people do not care who is winning or losing the political gamesmanship in Washington, they want solutions that will bring them relief from the harmful effects of Obamacare, runaway spending, and a federal government that too often does not respect our basic freedoms and values. 

    The latest deal offers no meaningful relief from Obamacare.  No defunding of the law, no delay of the law or even the individual mandate, no protection of conscience or an end to abortion subsidies.  No elimination of the unlawful exchange subsidies for members of Congress and their staffs.  So while Washington is taking care of politically connected special interests, Americans around the country will continue to be exposed to the harmful effects of Obamacare.  Make no mistake, a vote for a deal like this is a vote to move forward with Obamacare. 

    We commend House and Senate conservatives who have fought for months to provide relief to Americans from Obamacare and who have stood resolute during this slowdown.  Over the objections of President Obama and Senator Reid (and even some Republicans), they have continued to offer commonsense plans to re-open government--even to temporarily lift the debt-ceiling--while continuing to make the case that Americans deserve the same relief from Obamacare that the politically connected receive.  We can do better than just another Washington deal.  Americans deserve more than political gamesmanship.  We must continue to fight to provide real, meaningful relief from Obamacare.  Anything less is unacceptable and should be opposed by conservatives.

    What is being suggested above is nothing short of irresponsible. Hopefully the enormous amount of negative PR that the GOP received with this plan will have them think twice before doing anything even remotely close to what has just happened ever again.
    This whole movement was totally invented for the sole purpose of serving the interests of its corporate backers. That is all there is to it. Whether you are conservative or not, Americans need to realize this and let their own voices be used for true democratic purposes and not let others with financial-only concerns speak on their behalf.
    This kind of behavior is not wanted. This not only likely cost the GOP's image dearly, which is a bad thing because we do in fact need a TWO party system that at least can agree to disagree but actually get things done, but it cost the US economy BILLIONS of dollars. ENOUGH is enough...

    Wow...hard to believe that so many Americans have little regard for the average middle and low income man or women. If you republicans want to change ACA, then try to win back the hearts and minds of middle class america. The only thing your doing is destroying your own party. You people are like out-of-control crack addicts, completely out of touch with reality.
