Tell Thom Tillis and Phil Berger to Say NO to Obamacare!
A very important ObamaCare deadline is quickly approaching, and we must act fast to keep our state from succumbing to the national health care scheme.
This Friday, November 16, states are expected to submit their plans for a Health Insurance Exchange, as called for under ObamaCare.
While the U.S. Supreme Court found the individual mandate to purchase insurance Constitutional – albeit reclassified as a tax – they also found that the federal government cannot force states to comply with federal mandates on the threat of losing existing federal funding.
The court said that, “the legitimacy of Congress’s exercise of the spending power….rests on whether the State voluntarily and knowingly accepts the terms of the contract.” (Emphasis added.) They went on to confirm that states have the right as independent sovereigns to refuse to act on federal mandates they do not like.
If a state simply refuses to accept federal mandates (and the associated “bribe” money) to implement ObamaCare Exchanges, as the court explicitly affirms is within its power, the entire law would collapse upon itself.
Last year, the General Assembly made an attempt to install an ObamaCare exchange in our state. You rallied against the scheme, and those plans were shelved – at least temporarily.
But there is still serious uncertainty about what will happen on this issue, and with the November 16 deadline quickly approaching, we simply cannot afford to sit back and wait for an answer.
House Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate President Pro Tem need to hear from you immediately! Call right away and remind them not to “voluntarily and knowingly” succumb to the national takeover of your health care.
House Speaker Thom Thillis: (919)733-3451
Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger: (919)733-5708
Insist that they refuse to build an insurance exchange as called for in ObamaCare.
