Letters to the Editor: Help us repeal Obamacare...

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Have you heard of ObamaCare? Would you like to see it repealed? In less than two weeks, the Election will be history and the challenge of the victors begins.

With the expected republican sweep less than 12 days away, we are looking at our Congress Crittur Barton assuming a place in the majority and probably a position in the Leadership.

From this exalted post, our congressional representative will be in a position of power that if he is willing to listen to his employers (We the People); he will be able to confront the issues that we have determined as important to his constituency.

We are currently circulating a petition and expect to put 1,000,003 signatures on Congressman Joe Barton’s desk asking him to sponsor or co-sponsor legislation to repeal ObamaCare next year.

We want him to make it go away.

There are several legislative initiatives already in the works; Representative Steve King of Iowa introduced the simplest one back on March 25, 2010, titled H.R. 4972, "To repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act."

The entire text of this resolution is as follows: "Effective as of the enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, such Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted."

There are currently 13 Texas Representatives cosponsoring Steve King’s legislative proposal, all Republicans, with no Democrats signing on to help.

Mr. Barton has put his name on the discharge petition to fast track the H.R. 4972, but as of yet has not committed to the actual legislation. Our petition is asking our public servant to take a stand and make a pledge to We the People.

This petition will spread across CD6 and you can be one of the first if you act fast.

We will turn back this avalanche of spending only with the help of the grassroots activists taking a part. Get off your sofa and help us return to a time before "Hope and Change." Repeal ObamaCare!

If you would like to learn more on where and when you can ask Congressman Barton to join us, contact the Ellis County Tea Party or the Navarro County Conservatives on the Web. Put ‘ObamaCare Repeal Petition’ in the subject line, we will get back to you.

America belongs to you too!
