Sen. Mike Lee Throws Down Gauntlet: Defund Obamacare or Face Government Shutdown…(Shut It Down!!)
July 11, 2013
Senator Mike Lee issued a scathing condemnation of the Obama administration’s decision to suspend the employer mandate, while leaving the individual mandate in force.
The Constitutional Attorney slammed the Democrats for promoting the interests of Big Business, while discriminating against the ‘little guy.’ Mike Lee’s diatribe would surely make moderate Democrats’ heads spin if they saw it:
“It’s fundamentally unfair to adopt an employer mandate and an individual mandate and say, ‘I’m going to enforce this against hard-working individual Americans, but the government is going to look the other way when it comes to wealthy, corporate fat cats”…
“If congressional Democrats want to oppose appropriations bills without additional ObamaCare funding, shut down the government, and side with the president and Big Business against the American people, then it’s their choice. But three years in, even the president himself has now admitted that ObamaCare won’t work. The only responsible choice now is to protect the country from ObamaCare’s looming disaster, start over and finally begin work on real health care reform.”
