Place ObamaCare On Hold!

America needs your vote on the "Time Out on ObamaCare" Act, bill number S.281, authored by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX).

This amendment would COMPLETELY halt the ObamaCare health care nightmare from being implemented pending a final judicial ruling on its constitutionality.

ObamaCare is bad medicine for America because it kills jobs, bankrupts the government, drives up everyone's health insurance costs, puts bureaucratic “boards” in charge of rationing care, and ruins the world's best health care system – NOT A PERFECT SYSTEM, BUT THE WORLD'S BEST!  The 2800+ page ObamaCare bill was INTENTIONALLY set up with hidden agendas and “costs” which were not to be revealed to the public until AFTER the November 2012 elections.  There are currently 26 states in court to repeal this bill, and currently the number of waivers granted stands at 1400+ including seven entire states.  Most of these waivers have gone to Obama constituents who SUPPORTED ObamaCare, but do not want to suffer under its oppression.  More than 1400 waivers have already been issued to businesses and unions, AARP, more than 50% of all waivers have gone to unions, 20% of all waivers have gone to Ms. Pelosi’s district, and Mr. Reid’s whole state has been waivered, ALL supporters of ObamaCare.  This is CRONYISM in it’s ugliest form!  The sheer numbers of waiver requests has been so large that the House and Human Services (HHS) announced they were shutting down all waiver requests as of September, 2011, but appears to still be issuing waivers because of public outcry.  HHS has still refused to release details or criteria on how waivers are granted and refused.  Selective implementation and enforcement of ObamaCare OR ANY LAW is the first sign of tyranny.  A government empowered to determine arbitrarily who may operate outside the rule of law inevitably leads to corruption, ultimately resulting in tyranny.

Polls have consistently shown that a solid majority of Americans want Washington to reverse the GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER of health care and adopt a patient-centered approach.  The Obama Administration is rushing to implement this unpopular law in the face of the opposition of a majority of the American public, a majority of the House, a near-majority of the Senate, and a majority of the states, which latter are suing to have the law stayed on constitutional grounds.  Obama’s Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has found that Obama’s promise of 4 MILLION new jobs is false, and CBO estimates that ObamaCare will ACTUALLY destroy more than 800,000 EXISTING jobs.  Before casting his vote in favor of ObamaCare, Sen. Kent Conrad, North Dakota Democrat, described it as "a Ponzi scheme of the first order, the kind of thing that Bernie Madoff would have been proud of"(sic).

Since December, 2010, two federal district judges, in Virginia and Florida, have declared unconstitutional ObamaCare's "individual mandate" requiring all U.S. residents to purchase health insurance (the linch-pin of the entire, 2801-page law).  The rulings in these and other cases are being appealed by the Obama Administration's lawyers. The judge in the Florida case made clear that he is effectively ordering the government to stop enforcing the law on the 26 states who are parties to the lawsuit; yet the Obama administration has indicated it WILL NOT halt implementation.

To avoid wasting more time and money imposing costly burdens on individuals and employers that may eventually be ruled null and void by a decision of the Supreme Court, Congress MUST vote on and ultimately adopt Sen. Hutchison's "Time Out on ObamaCare" Act, bold legislation that would impose a moratorium on further implementation of ObamaCare the until the courts render a final judicial decision of its constitutionality.
