ObamaCare Repeal Action Alert:
Call Your Senators to Stop Continuing Resolution HR 3082
We expect that the United States Senate will take up consideration of HR 3082, the the House-passed Continuing Resolution which contains billions of dollars of funding for ObamaCare in short order. The Senate must respect the will of the American people as expressed in last month’s elections, and defeat this resolution.
Call your Senator NOW at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to oppose the passage of HR 3082 if it funds ObamaCare!
The American people in last month’s elections made clear their opposition to implementation of ObamaCare. Yet the Democrats who still control this Lame Duck Congress last week included billions of dollars to begin funding ObamaCare in the Continuing Resolution they moved through the House. That’s wrong, and we must call on the Senate to reverse course and strip ObamaCare funding from this legislation before moving it to final passage.
Of the 29 House incumbents who took the IWV ObamaCare Repeal Pledge – a Pledge which includes, among other things, a promise to work to defund and deauthorize the individual component parts of ObamaCare – not a single one of them broke their promise during House consideration of the measure last week. They proved their integrity with their votes against funding ObamaCare, and we applaud them for it.
Now the action turns to the Senate, and we call on those who support repeal of ObamaCare to join with those who believe elections matter to work together to defeat the measure, or at least to strip out the provisions which fund ObamaCare before moving it to final passage.
Don’t wait! Call your Senator NOW at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to oppose the passage of HR 3082 if it funds ObamaCare!
It’s just not right for the Democrats who control the Lame Duck Congress to use their earlier failure to do their jobs to now sneak funding for ObamaCare into this last-minute catchall spending bill.
The will of the American people should be listened to.

Another bill to watch:
Senate Democrats today released a 1,924 page $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill which they will try to push through in this lame duck session. According to The Hill this bill ”includes funding to implement the sweeping healthcare reform bill.” More info at http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/133563-senate-dems-unveil-11t-omnibus-spending-bill-
Update: The Heritage Foundation has posted a link to the text of the omnibus spending bill at http://blog.heritage.org/2010/12/14/the-omnibus-text/ . Heritage also reveals that “[t]he 1,924 page bill (pdf) contains unknown thousands of earmarks and will prevent the next Congress from making spending cuts until fiscal year 2012.”
