NC Chairman Bringing Obamacare Fight Before National Committee


In March of this year, the US House voted to continue government funding through an appropriations bill which included funding for aspects of Obamacare. Only one North Carolina Republican Representative, Walter Jones, voted in favor of allowing for the defunding of Obamacare, the rest voting to close the bill from being amended, thereby dashing any hopes of eliminating Obamacare funding provisions from the bill prior to passage. In response, North Carolina Republicans passed a state-level resolution, directing that all of our US House Reps join in the next effort to defund Obamacare.

Next month, North Carolina will bring the fight to defund Obamacare for a vote before the Republican National Committee. NC GOP Chairman Claude Pope is Chief Sponsor to the Resolution to Defund Obamacare, which will be heard at the RNC summer meeting in Boston, MA. The resolution calls upon Republican US House Reps to defund Obamacare by making amendments from the floor during the fall appropriations vote, arguing that unilateral defunding is the necessary method of approach for defeating Obamacare, rather than repeal measures, which rely on approval from the Democrat-controlled Senate.

Committeewoman Ada Fisher solidified North Carolina committee members’ unanimous support of the resolution last week, stating, “I will gladly sponsor this with Chairman Pope and Committeeman Lewis.” The announcement that all 3 NC committee members stand united in support of the resolution coincides with an effort from NC House Rep. Mark Meadows to prevent House leadership from allocating further funding of Obamacare through the upcoming appropriations, as well as criticism from NC Senator Richard Burr over similar efforts from the Senate.
