Skip to comments.Statewide Rally to Defund Obamacare – Tuesday 8/27
Posted on 08/25/2013 7:35:26 AM PDT by Whenifhow
This is our last chance to pull the plug on an unwanted and unpopular law that promises to change America forever. We must speak our opinion to U.S. House Speaker and Ohio 8th District Representative John Boehner, No funding for Obamacare. Let your voice be heard in Troy, OH on Tuesday, August 27th.
Real Clear Politics average polling shows Obamacare is now opposed by a margin of 51% against to 39% in favor (link). Voters in Ohio spoke loudly against the federal government takeover of healthcare by passing the Healthcare Freedom Amendment (HFA) in 2011. The HFA won with 66% of the vote and passed in all of Ohios 88 counties. As a check and balance to protect America from tyranny, the founders gave the House of Representatives (or the Peoples House) control of the purse strings of our nation. The House Speaker controls the gavel and the calendar. This means he decides who can speak and what bills may be scheduled for a vote. It is fully within John Boehners power not to allow ANY bills to the House floor that include money for Obamacare. In September, the House will hold a vote to fund our government. They will either include money to fund the implementation of Obamacare or they will pass a resolution without such funding.
Please join a gathering of liberty-groups, faith-based organizations and other freedom-loving Ohioans this Tuesday in Troy, OH for a rally in Speaker Boehners district to tell him to Pull the Plug on Obamacare.

Article, Dont forget us, Mr. Speaker
The Cincinnati Enquirers editorial, Dont forget us, Mr. Speaker, gives Representative Boehner a soft rebuke for not making time for his constituents in US House District 8. The lack of access has rankled enough constituents that they have formed the Ohio Accountability Project and have requested a town how meeting during which they can address Boehner personally rather than through staff.
Even the Enquirer is having difficulty gaining access to Boehner who has declined to meet with their editorial board when hes been in town.
That the Enquirer is speaking out on this issue should raise a few eyebrows. Even though Boehner is a national figure, it is the people of the 8th District who put him into office, and they deserve as much representation as the rest of America.
The Cincinnati Equirers editorial can be found here.
S’pose he’ll suddenly discover urgent obligations elsewhere?
...seize supermajority control of Congress in the 2014 elections.... then... Congress would have the constitutional authority, under Clause 2 of Section 7 of Article I, to repeal Obamacare without Obama’s signature.
Perhaps those who attend this rally would consider this as practice for the 2014 elections.
Thank you for that information - I did not know about this.
Nevertheless, Boehner needs to know the people are standing on conservative christian principles.
