Dems' hypocrisy on health care

Success - Article sent! close

The Republican-controlled House did their job last week and passed a continuing resolution to fund the entire federal government's activities without providing funding for Obamacare.

The Democrats want to scare the American public with talk of a government shutdown, which is not a true representation of the facts. The threat of a partial government shutdown is real. The shutdown would apply only to nonessential functions; the government would continue Social Security and other entitlements and agencies such as the FBI, border patrols and Transportation Security Administration would remain open.

Also recall that the Democrats who wrote and passed Obamacare have also given themselves a waiver on adhering to their law. Keep asking yourself while the Democrats tout their spin on the benefits of Obamacare why don't they implement it on themselves.

Therefore, if there is a partial government shutdown, it is due to the Democrats' need to push their bill of which they won't abide on the American public while the Republicans are attempting to gain the waiver of this law for all citizens.
