GOOD NEWS ON DEFUNDING OBAMACARE! UPDATE FROM THE SENATE CONSERVATIVES FUND

Fellow Conservatives:

YOU DID IT!

Thousands of you made phone calls this week to encourage conservative lawmakers in the House to oppose the Republican leadership’s “trick rule” to fund Obamacare, and it worked.

Don't Fund ObamacareHouse Republican leaders do not have the votes to advance the bill so they have pulled it from the calendar and postponed the debate until next week.

This is a major accomplishment and you made it happen.

Some Republicans in the House were annoyed by your calls, but that’s okay. They needed to know that freedom-loving Americans from across the country were counting on them to stop Obamacare.

Only 18 Days to Go — Help Us Turn Up the Heat

WHAT’S NEXT?

The American people oppose Obamacare and the votes do not currently exist in the U.S. House to fund it.

John Boehner - Mitch McConnellThe question now for Republican leaders in Washington is whether they will accept this reality and join us in the fight to defund Obamacare … OR … will they keep trying to find ways to trick us.

Will John Boehner and Mitch McConnell listen, or will they continue to work to fund a program that will destroy our country? Time will tell.

We hear that Republican leaders are now trying to cut a deal where Republicans would get a one-year delay of certain parts of Obamacare and give the Democrats more spending and a higher debt limit in exchange.

There are a couple BIG problems with this.

  1. The only way to delay Obamacare is to DEFUND it. If Obamacare is not defunded, the Obama Administration will still be able to use our tax dollars to implement portions of the law. The health exchange subsidies that are designed to make Americans dependent on Obamacare, for example, will go forward.
  2. Americans should NOT be forced to permanently pay for more spending and debt just to get a temporary delay in Obamacare. Congress already spends far too much. If Democrats want to also raise the debt limit, they should be forced to completely REPEAL Obamacare and pass a balanced budget.

We will keep you informed as things develop.

TURN UP THE HEAT

We won Round 1, but the fight isn’t over.

Please help us turn up the heat by making a secure, online donation to the Senate Conservatives Fund today.

Your support will help us:

  • Run more national TV and radio ads against Obamacare
  • Build upon the 1.2 million petitions to defund Obamacare
  • Drive thousands of calls into House and Senate offices
  • Target wavering Republicans who need to join the fight

We need to raise another $50,000 to pull out all the stops.

Obamacare starts in October so we don’t have much time. If we work together, we can fund the government without funding Obamacare.

Best regards,

SWEENEY’S BAD TIMING

Tries to make it about guns on the day the Colorado Senate President goes down

272920017_hypocrisy_answer_1_xlarge

Steve Sweeney’s personal feud with Tom Kean hit the rocks today.  Sweeney sent out an ill-timed hit piece on the Senate Republican Leader.  The Star Ledger takes up the story:”The Democratic State Committee recently sent a mailer to Kean’s (R-Union) district attacking him over his opposition to Senate President Stephen Sweeney’s (D-Gloucester) ‘centerpiece’ gun control bill (S2723) to overhaul how the state issues firearm ID permits.

‘Tom Kean wants to keep it easier to buy guns than to buy cold medicine,’ the mailer reads.
Kean voted against the bill, which would have either encoded firearms purchase permits on driver’s licenses or a separate photo ID, expanded background checks for gun purchases and required buyers to have completed a safety training course.
The mailer was referring to the lack of a photo on New Jersey firearms purchase permits. Although the permits do not have a photo, prospective buyers need to show a photo ID to obtain them.
The flyer says Kean, whose father was a famously moderate Republican governor in the 1980s, is ‘too extreme.’
‘Send this tea party politician packing,’ it says.”

This represents yet another flip-flop by Sweeney, who used to run his campaigns claiming to be a Second Amendment champion.  Sweeney even served a co-chairman of the legislative gun caucus.  Now he favors taking away the rights of law abiding citizens to own a weapon for self-protection.  What changed?  We will get to that in a moment.
Meanwhile, out in Colorado, the Senate President there who is a Democrat like Sweeney was facing recall election along with another Democrat colleague in a safe Democrat seat.  The two had championed legislation along the lines of Sweeney’s.  They both lost yesterday.  Who funded the contest and to what extent tells us a lot about Senate President Sweeney’s sudden conversion from pro-Bill of Rights to anti.  The New York Times takes up the story:

“The recall elections ousted two Democratic state senators, John Morse and Angela Giron, and replaced them with Republicans. Both defeats were painful for Democrats – Mr. Morse’s because he had been Senate president, and Ms. Giron’s because she represented a heavily Democratic, working-class slice of southern Colorado.”
“For advocates on both sides, the stakes in Tuesday’s elections were far bigger than the fates of two state politicians. As money and national attention poured into Colorado, a state of hunters that has been stained by two mass shootings, the races became a symbol of the nation’s bitter fight over gun control, with one side bolstered by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York and the other by the National Rifle Association.
While both sides campaigned vigorously, knocking on doors, holding rallies and driving voters to the polls, gun-control advocates far outspent their opponents. A range of philanthropists, liberal political groups, unions and activists raised a total of $3 million to defend Mr. Morse and Ms. Giron. Mr. Bloomberg personally gave $350,000.”

Follow the money and it will always lead back to Steve Sweeney.  The Senate President is the lynchpin to what has been described as the “grease machine” run by South Jersey political boss George Norcross.  Even the left, like the teachers’ union, understands that Sweeney is corrupt and they called him out on it in a recent ad campaign:

Note:  It’s not unusual to find the NJEA going after a Republican Governor, but when they call out the corruption of fellow Democrats, that is an indication of how low-down Steve Sweeney really is.
