KING: 100 percent repeal of Obamacare
Wash Times ^ | 4/2/10 | Steve King

Posted on 04/02/2010 8:40:11 PM PDT by pissant

President Obama, speaking at a rally in Iowa City on March 25, challenged opponents of Obamacare who have vowed repeal. To repeal advocates, the President said, "Go for it."

Before the first light of dawn on the morning after this Pelosi Congress sent Obamacare to the President's desk, I started the process to repeal.My decision to take this fight to and through the next election and probably through the presidential election in 2012 was not a knee jerk response to a legislative defeat.It is a commitment to the Constitution, fiscal responsibility, real health care reform and American Liberty.

President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid - the troika that controls America today - have long had designs to shove America into the abyss of socialism. Their philosophy, political power and cynical effort to expand the dependency class all lined up to make Obamacare the law of the land. The highest price every generation of Americans will pay is not measured in dollars but in lost liberty.

America is a unique nation with unmatched vitality. The rights and liberties which transformed the "Dream" into the reality of American Exceptionalism are written on our hearts. We have a vitality that is unmatched because we have skimmed the cream of the crop off every donor civilization.

Thank you, Mr. King.

Even if we lose, we need to fight such a fierce battle they cannot enjoy the victory.

What an arrogant SOB. I hope the Democrats lose 100 seats in the House and 15 in the Senate. That won't give the Republicans veto proof majorities but it will scare the crap out the the Democrats left and repeal maybe possible. (Well I can hope, it's not just HC that need repeal but his entire agenda needs to be stopped).

Glad he is telling it like it is. Yes, we must repeal 100% of obamacare.

We are not a nation created to mimic mediocrity. Our charge is to take this nation upwards to a new level of liberty and prosperity built upon the pillars of American exceptionalism.

Will Steve King be in the 2012 presidential race?

King Introduces Bill to Repeal Obamacare

Congressman Steve King (R-IA) this week introduced legislation that will completely repeal Obamacare. Text of his legislation (H.R. 4972) follows:

Effective as of the enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, such Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.

“Today the work begins to repeal Obamacare and restore the principles of liberty that made America a great nation,” King said. “The American people must take their country back by methodically eliminating every vestige of creeping socialism, including socialized medicine. The Pelosi Democrats will pay a price for their overreach. This fight is far from over.”

You must not have children. Losing is not an option. The progressives enjoying victory has nothing to do with our battle. This is about living in liberty granted by God through the Constitutional Republic His Providence gave us. We must fight such a fierce battle we win.

Amen to that! I have been sending money to individual candidates around the country rather than to the RNC. Mr. King is definately on the list with Michelle Bachmann, Joe Wilson, Mario Rubio and several others.

I do hope the boob in the white house takes up the “bone” look. Accessories do make the “marxist.” Such a refined man, such style, “he's so cool.”

REPEAL OR REBEL

Like the Tea Tax and the British Parliament, those who voted for Obamacare in Congress do not represent anybody who will be paying for it.

IT WILL NEVER BE REPEALED. Too little too late. There should have been riots in the streets before this garbage was passed.Those of you waiting for NOV elections are fooling yourselves as well. Nov is way way too late. The damage to this country will be enormous by then and in my opinion irreversible.We do a lot of talking on here but no doing. We should have NEVER let this health care bill go through .
