“OBAMACARE A TICKING TIME BOMB”

A “fax barrage” or phone calls to Congress are also encouraged by Liberty Counsel…

UPDATE FROM TUESDAY 1/18/11:

From: “Liberty Counsel” <alert@libertyaction.org>
Date: January 18, 2011 5:46:50 PM EST
Subject: Sell your house to pay for ObamaCare!

Mathew Staver,

Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

Guess what?  Hidden deep in the pages of ObamaCare is a home sales tax that will impact many homeowners! It’s further proof that ObamaCare is a looming economic disaster. The vote in the House of Representatives to repeal ObamaCare is scheduled to happen as early as Wednesday evening. We still have a few hours remaining to tell our elected officials to repeal this disastrous bill. Let’s keep up our intense Fax Barrage telling elected officials, “Repeal it…Now!”  

       Please read my important ObamaCare update below – Mat.

Remember President Obama’s Pledge in 2008?

“I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.  Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes…”

Now, according to the GOP.gov website, ObamaCare taxes home
sales and will clobber the middle class!  

“Beginning January 1, 2013, ObamaCare imposes a 3.8% Medicare tax on unearned income, including the sale of single family homes, townhouses, co-ops, condominiums, and even rental income.”

“This new ObamaCare tax is the first time the government will apply a 3.8 percent tax on unearned income.  This new tax on home sales, unearned income, and other Medicare taxes, raise taxes more than $210 billion to pay for ObamaCare.”

“The National Association of Realtors called this new Medicare tax on unearned income ‘destructive’ and ‘ill-advised’ and warned it would hurt job creation.”  

++Buy Now, Pay Later.

As I wrote to you yesterday, ObamaCare is front-end-loaded
with a few short-term perks, but the true price of this government takeover is still being uncovered.  In fact,
many of the hard costs come into play AFTER the 2012 elections!    

In short, ObamaCare is a “Buy Now, Pay Later” scheme – and the payments will break the bank!  That is why we must act NOW to support the “Repealing the Job Crushing Health Care Law Act.”

This is likely our last opportunity to affect the rapidly approaching “Repeal ObamaCare” vote in the House.  The vote could happen as early as Wednesday afternoon.

Liberty Counsel’s highly effective Fax Barrage will IMMEDIATELY deliver YOUR mandate to our elected representatives to do what
we elected them to do:

Repeal, defund, and/or replace the so-called healthcare “reform” bill!

So far, the Liberty Counsel team has delivered a blistering barrage of over 25,000 faxes to our Representatives! This will have a tremendous impact.

But we must not let up now when the vote is just ahead!

Please make your voice heard to your Representative.  Everything
you need to fax Congress is contained in the link below. It only
takes a minute. Click here to schedule your faxes now:

++Beware of the “spin.”

The Leftists and their media followers are everywhere spinning the alleged benefits of ObamaCare.  The effect
is that some of the recently released polls from liberal sources are showing a slightly diminishing number of
Americans opposing ObamaCare.

It’s all “spin.”  Those of us who know about the healthcare “reform” bill’s TRUE costs are steadfastly opposed to the unconstitutional and costly mandates of ObamaCare.  

And we have seen a groundswell of disappointment and anger at the vast gap between the promises that were made concerning the ObamaCare bill and what Americans are actually experiencing.

++The repeal vote in the House is just the first step.

Although there are some who say this is a “symbolic” vote and it’s unlikely to get a repeal bill through the Senate – that defeatist line of thinking misses the point!

A strong House victory for the repeal will create enormous pressure on the Senate.  And as the torturous realities of actually implementing ObamaCare become more and more clear, an override of a presidential veto could well come into play!

The fact is, the more lopsided the repeal vote is in the House, the stronger the message to the Senate before the bill hits their doorstep. Click here now to support the
repeal of ObamaCare:
http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=36514&CID=327&RID=24051699

++Tell Representative Crenshaw to vote to repeal it!

ObamaCare promotes abortion, fosters healthcare rationing,
socializes yet another major industry, destroys private sector jobs, and will further weaken our already faltering
economy.  

ObamaCare is immoral and it is WRONG for America!  The RIGHT thing to do is repeal it…NOW!

In the few remaining hours before the House vote, we MUST support the repeal initiative and send a powerful, focused message to each of our own Representatives, wavering Members,
and pro-life Members of the House.  Since you have done this before, you know how easy it is to have a big impact!

Go here to schedule your targeted faxes:

http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=36516&CID=327&RID=24051699

And please CALL your Representative before the vote! This
will require patience, so please don’t give up if you get a busy signal or are placed on hold for an available line.
Here’s the number:

Rep. Crenshaw  #202-225-2501

Time is limited to support this vital first step to repeal ObamaCare. Thank you in advance for all you have done and will continue to do to defend life, liberty, and family!

God bless you,
Mathew Staver,

Liberty Counsel

P.S. ObamaCare will devastate the middle class. It is a budget-busting, job-killing bill. I URGE you to send
faxes now and tell our elected officials to REPEAL the anti-life, anti-family, anti-freedom healthcare
“reform” bill.  Please, go here:

Subject: The “ticking time bomb” called ObamaCare.

Mathew Staver,

Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel 

The vote in the House of Representatives to repeal ObamaCare is scheduled to happen as early as Wednesday or Thursday. We have limited hours remaining to tell our elected officials to repeal
this disastrous bill. The pro-ObamaCare “spin” is in full cycle! To counter it, I am calling on our
Liberty Counsel team to keep up our intense Fax Barrage telling elected officials, “Repeal it…Now!”  

Please read my urgent update below – Mat.  

http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=36442&CID=327&RID=24051699

With the vote to repeal President Obama’s signature legislation happening this week in the House, Democrats have been trumpeting the benefits of ObamaCare by arguing that the initial phase of the bill contains things all Americans can agree upon. 

Yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid attacked the Republican-led repeal initiative on “Meet the Press.” 

“They can’t be serious, to have people now that have pre-existing disabilities to no longer be able to get insurance.” 

“They can’t be serious, when people who are on Social Security now can get a free checkup, they can have wellness checks anytime they want and not have to pay for it.”

Although this pro-ObamaCare “spin” is technically true, it is part of the Left’s strategy to obstruct the repeal 
effort – knowing (as they certainly do) that the worst of ObamaCare is yet to come.  As columnist Timothy Carey 
warns, ObamaCare is a ticking time bomb:

“In fighting against the ObamaCare repeal this week, Democrats portray their health care law as a money saver, claiming Republicans would add to the deficit by abolishing the legislation.  But in their franker moments, the bill’s authors admit that ‘reform’ could be something of a time bomb that will cause exploding health care costs down the line.”

Yes, ObamaCare was strategically “frontloaded” with popular measures that Americans would have a difficult time repealing once enacted. The architects delayed the more costly and controversial aspects of the plan, including the individual mandate, until after the 2012 election. 

Does this tactic sound familiar?  It was a favorite maneuver of the Obama/Reid/Pelosi political machine 
throughout the 111th Congress.     

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Sunday,  “It is telling that the more Americans learn about it, the more discouraged they are by its harmful effects.” 

“And because of its mandates, ObamaCare has already caused the costs of health care to increase, while forcing some Americans to give up the health care they have even if they like it.”

In short, ObamaCare is a “Buy Now, Pay Later” scheme – and the payments will break the bank!  That is why we must act NOW to support the “Repealing the Job Killing Health Care Law Act.”

++Tell Representative Crenshaw to vote to repeal it! 

There is a groundswell of disappointment and anger at the
vast gap between the promises that were made concerning the healthcare “reform” bill and what Americans are
actually experiencing.

UPDATE FROM FRIDAY 1/14/11:

From: “Liberty Counsel” <alert@libertyaction.org>
Date: January 14, 2011 9:35:29 PM EST
Subject: Tell Congress to repeal ObamaCare!

Mathew Staver,

Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel 
(…)

Brad Dayspring, a spokesman for House Majority Leader Eric 
Cantor, said yesterday… 

           “Americans have legitimate concerns about the cost of the new healthcare law and its effect on the ability to grow jobs in our country.”

There is a groundswell of disappointment and anger at the 
vast gap between the promises that were made concerning the
healthcare “reform” bill and what Americans are actually
experiencing.

++NOW is the time to start the repeal of ObamaCare! 

House Members are getting back to business on Monday following a brief recess to mourn and reflect upon the 
Tucson tragedy.  

Last week, House Republicans introduced a resolution called
the “Repealing the Job Killing Health Care Law Act” as their first order of business in the 112th Congress. 
Sources tell us the rescheduled vote is likely to be held on Wednesday. 

Although there are some who say it is unlikely to get a repeal bill through the Senate – and it cannot be 
expected that President Obama would withhold his veto even if it did get through – that defeatist line of
thinking misses the point entirely!

       A strong House victory for the repeal will create enormous pressure on the Senate.  And as the torturous realities of actually implementing ObamaCare become more and more clear, an override of a presidential veto could well come into play!

And besides, ObamaCare promotes abortion, fosters healthcare
rationing, socializes yet another major industry, destroys private sector jobs, and will further weaken our already
faltering economy.  

       ObamaCare is immoral and it is WRONG for America!  The RIGHT thing to do is repeal it…NOW!
(…)
Last Friday afternoon, before the tragedy in Tucson shocked the nation, Speaker of the House John Boehner was gaining good momentum toward passing the repeal, and the Liberty Counsel team shared in that progress.  
(…)
The fact is, the more lopsided the repeal vote is in the House, the stronger the message to the Senate before the bill hits their doorstep. …

++Cooking the books to “sell” a national disaster.

A recent op-ed piece by Representative Joe Pitts (R-PA) 
refers to the financial accounting of ObamaCare as “cooking the books.” 

ObamaCare supporters call the Health Care Reform Act “deficit
reducing,” based on a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report that showed a $230 billion deficit reduction over 10 years. 

       But those of us opposed to ObamaCare know that the CBO can only determine their assessments 
based on the quality of the financial information fed to them, in this case by Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi.  

Here are a few indisputable facts from Joe Pitts’ article: 

           * “ObamaCare is a massive new law, spanning thousands of pages. The bill itself authorizes
hundreds of billions of dollars to run new programs. What the bill doesn’t do is provide the Department of Health and Human Services with any money to implement these programs.”

           * “Most of the ObamaCare programs that pay out benefits will start up in 2014. However, the taxes start right away. Ten years of revenue coming in, and only six years of benefits being paid out.”

           * “When you add in gimmicks like double-counting Medicare savings and ignoring the cost of the Medicare doc fix, ObamaCare actually increases the deficit by $701 billion in just the first 10 years. That’s some pretty powerful book cooking.”

++Past experiences with such “estimates” have been alarming!

If you recall, the actual cost of Medicare wound up being 13
times greater than the CBO estimated in its first decade!  Imposing one of the highest tax increases in history in the middle of a recession will most certainly NOT turn out to 
be “deficit neutral.”

Americans know that ObamaCare will socialize and damage our world-class healthcare system, destroy our liberty, and undermine the sanctity of human life. 

 And the only way the Obama/Pelosi/Reid team found 
to pass ObamaCare was to disrespect the rule of law through deception and gross abuse of the 
legislative process. 

++Congress must be made to hear our voices immediately!

In the few remaining hours before the House vote, we MUST support Boehner’s and Cantor’s initiative and send a powerful, focused message to each of our own Representatives,
wavering Members, and pro-life Members of the House.

Please don’t let your guard down. We can be certain that Members of the House will be pressured to keep ObamaCare moving toward full implementation.

           the Department of Health and Human Services

           CBO’s cost estimate does not include the $115
           billion it will require to actually run these 
           new programs. If Congress does not appropriate
           this money in the coming years, the promised
           benefits will never be paid out.”

           * “Most of the ObamaCare programs that pay out
           benefits will start up in 2014. However, the
           taxes start right away. Ten years of revenue 
           coming in, and only six years of benefits being 
           paid out. In the first 10 years of the program, 
           $1.4 trillion will be spent, but in the next 
           10 years $2.6 trillion will be paid out. This
           is perhaps the easiest accounting gimmick 
           to understand.”

If you recall, the actual cost of Medicare wound up being
13 times greater than the CBO estimated in its first decade!
Here are a few additional counterpoints to the sales pitch
the Obama Administration and their friends in Congress are
making:

           *  Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) conclusively 
           showed during the health care “summit” that the
           10-year cost of the President’s plan was in 
           reality at least $2.3 trillion. He was, of course,
           completely ignored.

           *  In the single “socialized medicine laboratory”
           we have in the nation, Massachusetts, premiums
           are the highest of any state. And per capita
           health expenditures there are fully 27 percent 
           higher than the national average.

           *  Imposing one of the highest tax increases in 
           history in the middle of a recession will most 
           certainly NOT turn out to be “deficit neutral.”

Americans know that ObamaCare is a scheme that will 
socialize and damage our world-class healthcare system,
destroy our liberty, and undermine the sanctity of human 
life. And the only way the socialist Obama/Pelosi/Reid team
found to pass ObamaCare was to disrespect the rule of law 
through deception and gross abuse of the legislative process. 

++Congress must be made to hear our voices immediately!

In the few remaining days before the House vote, we MUST 
support Boehner’s and Cantor’s initiative and send a powerful,
focused message to each of our own Representatives, wavering
Members, and pro-life Members of the House.

We could see this crucial vote take place next week! Please
don’t let your guard down. We can be certain that Members 
of the House will be pressured to keep ObamaCare moving 
toward full implementation. 

           That’s why I’m asking every member of the 
           Liberty Counsel team to press hard on targeted 
           Members of the House and Senate with our
           powerful Fax Barrage. Go here to schedule 
           your targeted faxes:

tell them what you think about repealing ObamaCare!  This 
will likely require patience, so please don’t give up if 
you get a busy signal or are placed on hold for an available
line.          

We already know that ObamaCare will 
adversely affect every American. But we, as pro-life
Americans, MUST stand against the anti-life provisions
in the ObamaCare. I am calling for thousands of pro-life 
citizens to take a bold stand and tell Congress to 
REPEAL the anti-life ObamaCare bill! 

           This healthcare bill funds abortion, limits 
           our freedom, and will bankrupt America. We
           MUST do everything possible to STOP ObamaCare
           from progressing any further and imposing 
           more federally-funded abortions and 
           socialized medicine upon our nation!

Liberty Counsel team members have already sent hundreds
of thousands of faxes to Congress over the course of this 
eighteen-month-long battle.  At some points we have had
tremendous triumphs and at other times have seen our
voices totally ignored. 

           But we have remained strong in opposing a bill
           this nation simply cannot afford from either 
           a fiscal or moral standpoint! The important 
           fact is that we have been faithful to do what 
           was required of us as God-fearing, patriotic
           Americans!

Now, we have a much stronger contingent of legislators
committed to stopping the implementation of ObamaCare 
by repealing it. Please, click below to send your faxes, 
even if you have already done so many times in previous months: 
http://www.libertyaction.org/r.asp?U=36293&CID=327&RID=24051699
