Fortunately, a new breed of conservatives is rising to fight for American families Reebok Khaki Shoes
Sadly, there are scores of hypocritical Republicans who have just been giving lip service to voters at home with no intention of living up to their promises in Washington. How can they tell their constituents that they are opposed to ObamaCare and then vote to have those same Reebok Light Shoes

We're seeing yet another re run in Washington, DC these days. Elected Republican "leaders" are running scared on an important issue and a critical opportunity to do something about it. The Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare, is about to embed itself into the federal bureaucracy. Yet despite promising voters they would do everything possible to fight it, many Republicans are balking at an important and meaningful opportunity to stop it.
The consequences of ObamaCare are profound and happening right now: lost jobs and fewer work hours, higher health insurance premiums, higher taxes, fewer doctors and many Americans losing their current coverage. Everything President Obama said ObamaCare would do to help Americans has turned out to be false. He said health insurance premiums would go down; they're set to go up. He said you could keep your own private insurance; it turns out you cannot. He said it wouldn't raise taxes; it does. He said you could keep your doctor if you wish; it turns out you might not. He said his plan would control costs; but the first decade of ObamaCare is projected to cost nearly $2 trillion, greatly eclipsing earlier estimates. It is for these and other reasons that Americans resoundingly reject ObamaCare today.
ObamaCare before it's too late
Republicans need to keep their promises and defund ObamaCare.
constituents pay for it?
If the president can delay implementation of Obamacare for Big Business, Big Labor and Big Government, why is the same consideration not made for American families who will bear the financial burdens and bureaucratic morass associated with this law?
We can hold our breath hoping for an exemption for the rest of us that will never come, or we can seize an opportunity before us right now to actually defeat ObamaCare by defunding it in the Continuing Resolution, as proposed by Sen. Lee and his colleagues. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and others have criticized this effort as dumb, unwinnable and logistically impossible. Yet this is exactly what they're promising their constituents back home. Their arguments are especially reckless given that once the ObamaCare entitlements go into effect, we will have no shot at getting rid of ObamaCare. As Senator Ted Cruz has pointed out, no major entitlement in American history has ever been repealed, and this one will be no different.

Every congressional Republican either voted against ObamaCare at the time of its passage or has since voted for its repeal. But those votes were symbolic, with no chance of success. When given the chance to take real action with consequential legislation, they run.
Already we're seeing a delay in limits on out of pocket expenses, a delay in the employer mandate, and delays in securing from hackers the ObamaCare data hub into which Americans would enter their most private and personal medical and financial data. Teamsters International President James Hoffa has warned that ObamaCare will mean the end of the 40 hour work week, AFL CIO head Richard Trumka is troubled by the White House's one year delay of the ObamaCare employer mandate, and the union representing employees of the Internal Revenue Service the agency tasked with enforcing ObamaCare is opposed to it. In the greatest display of self serving hypocrisy, Congress pushed the Obama administration into writing special rules for its participation in the program's health care exchanges to preserve benefits for its employees. The only thing left is to exempt the rest of America.
Lee, Cruz, Rubio and a group of their Senate colleagues have risen above that fray of timid Republicans and pledged to use the approaching vote on a 'Continuing Resolution' (intended to keep government running until a final budget is worked out) as a means of not funding ObamaCare in this year's budget and make sure we do not pay for it.
and against ObamaCare. Senators Mike Lee of Utah, Ted Cruz of Texas, Marco Rubio of Florida and others reflect this new wave of leaders. Unafraid and undeterred by the consequences of choosing what is right over what is easy (otherwise known as what the GOP leadership wants), these senators are leading the final battle against ObamaCare, an effort to make sure taxpayers don't get saddled with having to pay for this monstrosity.
Americans should not be forced to pay for a law that is nowhere close to implementation and beset by delays and special carve outs for favored groups. The Obama administration itself has acknowledged it is not ready for implementationand the bill's chief architect, Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, has characterized ObamaCare as a "train wreck."
