Obamacare didn’t become law of the land after November’s election. It became law yesterday when a Republican House Majority solidified Obamacare funding. Yesterday, the Republican lead House voted overwhelmingly to pass a Continuing Resolution that failed to cut one cent from Obamacare.
It is important to note that prior to the vote on the Continuing Resolution, there was a “closed rule” vote. Passing this “closed rule” prevented any amendments to defund (or delay funding) Obamacare from being brought to the floor for a vote. In turn, it prevents we the people from having our representatives on record for actually voting yea or nay on the defunding of Obamacare. Only (16) courageous House Conservatives voted against this rule.
Yesterday, House Republicans had an opportunity to stop or delay the worst piece of legislation in American History, but did not. Every House Republican that voted for the “closed rule” needs to be asked, “Why did you pass on the last opportunity to defund Obamacare before complete implementation?”
We are including several links to give you a clear understanding of what happened in the House of Representatives yesterday regarding the Continuing Resolution. We hope that you take the time to read them.

Apparently, the Democrat lead Senate will allow amendments to the Continuing Resolution to be voted on. Senator Ted Cruz will be offering his: Restore Growth First – Defund Obamacare.
