ObamaCare: What a Difference an Election Makes

House Vote a First Step in Dismantling ObamaCare Law;
At Least 26 States Challenge Law in Federal Court
Philadelphia, PA (January 19, 2011) — The Independence Hall Tea Party Association congratulates the members of U.S. House of Representatives of the 112th Congress who voted, today, to repeal the employment busting law known as “ObamaCare.”
The ObamaCare repeal measure, H.R. 2, passed the U.S. House by a vote of 245-189.

“What a difference an election makes,” said Association President, Teri Adams.  “Last
year, the 111th Congress passed ObamaCare despite the fact, that in poll after poll, the American people clearly opposed the legislation due to its twin burdens of high costs and heavy taxation.
“This past November, the American people voted to fire one of the leaders of that
congress, Nancy Pelosi, and to give the Republicans their largest majority in the U.S.
House in modern American history.  It’s very encouraging that the first order of business in the new congress was to rescind ObamaCare.”
“We realize that if H.R. 2 were miraculously adopted by the U.S. Senate, President Obama would veto the bill,” said Adams.  “That’s why we’re supporting a three-pronged approach
to defeating ObamaCare.  It involves challenging the law in the U.S. Congress, in the
federal courts, and in the state legislatures.
“Numerous states throughout the nation are considering plans to opt out of ObamaCare, and at least 26 states have joined a federal suit challenging the constitutionality of the law,” said Adams.
“If we are to defeat ObamaCare in congress, we must elect a new president who would be committed to signing a repeal bill.  Given the fact that Tea Partiers were extremely
instrumental in taking back the House in the 2010 mid-term elections, it’s very
conceivable that we could win the White House in 2012.
“In the meantime, both the states and the U.S. House of Representatives can block ObamaCare by refusing to appropriate the funds necessary for its implementation.”
