The ObamaCare repeal process on Capitol Hill is in serious jeopardy as the latest ideas being floated slip further and further AWAY from the goal of actually REPEALING ObamaCare and DEFUNDING Planned Parenthood.
Today, TheHill.com is reporting that GOP Senators are “seriously considering keeping in place some ObamaCare taxes for longer than the House-passed bill would as they seek to draft healthcare legislation that can pass their chamber with a simple majority.”Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) called the concept an “ObamaCare hangover.”
Interpretation: While healthcare premium costs skyrocket under ObamaCare, some senators want to keep the ACA’s taxes in place to help offset the costs for those who can’t afford them.
Politico is reporting on a “threat that crucial abortion restrictions could derail the effort altogether.” As we predicted, pro-abortion senators could shipwreck the entire ObamaCare repeal effort!
Defunding Planned Parenthood in the repeal process is also in jeopardy!
+ + Time is running out!
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated that he wants a plan in place and a vote to happen BEFORE their July 4th recess. That means the next few days will be critical in the final draft of the bill.
That’s why we are calling for an all-out fax barrage of 20,000 messages sent to Capitol Hill this week!
If this latest round of information emerging from closed-door sessions is another launch of trial balloons, then it is vital that we respond immediately and tell members of the Upper Chamber what we think of their plan.
Again, this is Liberty Counsel Action’s top legislative priority. We need every team member taking action.
Thank you in advance for taking action on this important issue!
P.S. Without a strong grassroots push, the repeal effort will either fail or become so watered down as to result in a useless bill that doesn’t actually repeal ObamaCare or defund Planned Parenthood.
P.P.S. Please pray for the rapid recovery of Rep. Steve Scalise and the others who were assaulted this morning by an apparent deranged gunman.
