Let's vote in leaders who care about America

Delay the mandate, penalties, enrollment dates? Why delay something we already know is a monumental failure? Several very credible, independent and qualified experts indicate we are on the precipice in 2014 of 80 million people losing their employer-provided health insurance.

Don't delay it. Repeal it! Of course President Obama will veto -- he cares nothing for the average working family. But, the Senate can override his veto with 60 votes. We know North Carolina, Louisiana and Arkansas are going to do the right thing and fire their senators who repeated the lie "you can keep your health plan ... period."

We can redeem something of our awful national reputation born of Chicago-style politics and former governors who actually make the license plates. We can tell the nation corruption ends at the city limits. We can help millions of Americans keep their health care, their peace of mind and their hard earned money. We must fire Dick Durbin and replace him with someone who actually cares more about the American people and less about his party. Dick Durbin must go!
