Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act
Last Friday, the house voted 232-185, to pass a bill preventing the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from implementing any part of ObamaCare. With the intention of reducing control of universal health care under the IRS, rightfully, Congress named the bill “Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act.” This name fits especially well since the IRS is now known for discriminatory practices and poor protection of citizen’s confidential information.
Although Arkansas is still battling to free itself from increased government spending in health care under the Private Option, our United States Congressmen are taking up the fight for us on the front lines in Washington D.C. as all four of our representatives voted for “Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act.” Please take the time to call Congressmen Tom Cotton (479) 754-2120, Rick Crawford (870) 203-0540, Tim Griffin (501) 324-5941, and Steve Womack at (479) 464-0446 and thank them for fighting to keep ObamaCare out of Arkansas.
Our congressmen have been valiantly fighting along the sides of other Representatives as they reminded our executive branch for the 40th time that we will not surrender any more freedoms. In short, we will not give a seemingly corrupt bureaucracy, like the IRS, control our healthcare decisions. One of the Democrat Representatives who voted against the bill, John Dingell, said “Aren’t you embarrassed to go a 40th time in a fruitless, hopeless act?” The answer to this silly question lies in the 10th amendment of our Bill of Rights, which says that powers not given to the federal government (i.e. health care) belong to the states. It seems the Obama Administration and its supporters really desire our Congressmen to be ashamed that they voted to keep the power of decision making processes in the hands of Arkansas families.
Will liberals really continue to complain that representatives are not working with them to fix the problems in ObamaCare, but refuse to be held accountable for mistakes in the program that are hurting American jobs and citizens? For example, one doesn’t learn to ride a bike by falling down, scraping their knee, and blaming his or her parents for letting them fall. It takes responsibility and accountability for the actions you make to stand the bike up and start moving.
In order for America to cut our debt while achieving economic growth, we cannot support laws that leave us dependent on money we don’t have and blame their failure on a lack of support like the IRS is doing. Thankfully, we have representation in the US Congress that understands this and brush the negativity away as they stand the bike up, and keep on riding to achieve the goal of economic freedom and opportunity for the people.
