Democracy and Power 108: ObfuscationWherever politics intrudes upon economic life, political success is readily attained by saying what people like to hear rather than what is demonstrably true. Instead of safeguarding truth and honesty, the state then tends to become a major source of insincerity and mendacity. – Hans F. SennholzSeeking a favorable image, the politician talks in generalities, exaggerates and obfuscates.
FreedomWorks' Five-Point Plan to Fully Repeal ObamaCare
UPDATED: July 13, 2012
Although the Supreme Court tragically upheld ObamaCare, "We the People" can still repeal it.
FreedomWorks’ Five-Point Plan for Full Repeal
1) STOP THE OBAMACARE EXCHANGE: Stop your state from setting up an ObamaCare exchange.
In Part 1 of this series, we discussed the flaws in the decision by Chief Justice Roberts to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA (Obamacare)).In this post, we will examine the devastating effects of this new law.How The Statute Will Destroy AmericaSo, for now at least, Obamacare is the law of the land. Here's what the burden will be, according to FreedomWorks:
This week, Americans across the nation on both sides of the Obamacare debate expressed surprise, not only at the decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), but at the reasoning used by Chief Justice Roberts in writing the majority opinion. In fact, the very reading of the decision caused much confusion.
Now that the Supreme Court has decided by whatever twisted logic that the federal government may compel us to buy health insurance, lovers of freedom have no choice but to elect representatives who will do everything in their power to gut and repeal this terrible atrocity known as Obamacare.
Emergency Obamacare Conference Call: WE NEED YOU TO CALL IN!
It’s tragically ironic that the ruling on the President’s healthcare takeover came down the way it did and so close to the day when we as a nation are supposed to celebrate our independence. This bill all but eliminates our right to be free and independent people, shackling every one of us to government programs.
Key Vote NO on the Highway Spending and Student Loans Bill
Dear FreedomWorks member,
As one of our million-plus FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and urge him or her to vote NO on H.R. 4348, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). MAP-21 makes few reforms to the federal government’s rampant spending on transportation, and has been revised to also contain a market-distorting manipulation of student loan interest rates.
The Fed decided last week to extend Operation Twist, a program that involves buying up short term government bonds in order to purchase long term government debt. This is not only a waste of time and money, but it also represents yet another attempt on the part of the government to manipulate the free market and pick winners and losers in the process.
Today was a historic day for the Supreme Court, and for the future of health care reform. Here at FreedomWorks, we're both excited that the principles of limited government have been upheld, but disappointed in the outcome. However, the fight isn't over! We're still fighting to repeal ObamaCare, and we know that it's time for lots of victories in November!
