Don't Fund It!
On October 1st, millions of Americans will be required to enroll in Obamacare and could lose access to their doctors and be forced to pay higher premiums and higher taxes. But there's still time to stop it. Republicans in Congress can stop Obamacare if they refuse to fund it.
Sign the petition and tell Congress: Don't Fund Obamacare!
Senate Republican Whip ListDemocratic Leader Harry Reid needs 60 votes to fund Obamacare, but there are only 54 Democrats in the Senate. If Republicans hold strong, they can stop it.
Tell the Republicans to sign Senator Mike Lee's letter pledging to OPPOSE the government spending bill ("CR") if it funds Obamacare.
NOTE: If they say they SUPPORT bills to defund Obamacare, that does not help us because those bills won't be considered and don't have to pass. We need them to OPPOSE the CR if it funds Obamacare. The CR must be passed in September and it is our only point of leverage.
Please report what you hear from these senators so we can update our background information.
