Last month, we applauded the House and Senate for passing the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, which would put taxpayers first by repealing countless mandates and taxes introduced by ObamaCare.
As anticipated, President Obama quickly vetoed the legislation – resulting in a House vote to override the veto on Tuesday.
While the veto override attempt was obstructed by big-government stalwarts more concerned with preserving President Obama’s legacy than protecting taxpayers, fans of free-market capitalism can claim a moral victory.
President Obama and his allies were forced to reaffirm their commitment to suffocating hard-working families and small businesses with roughly 20,000 pages of new rules and regulations and nearly $800 billion in tax increases over the next 10 years.
Despite overwhelming evidence that ObamaCare is causing healthcare premiums to skyrocket and severely limiting the choices for consumers, President Obama and his surrogates continue to stand by it. Among those surrogates is Russ Feingold, who cast the deciding vote on the law during his 18-year tenure in the Senate.
Those who oppose the massive growth of the federal government under ObamaCare may be frustrated with the progress that’s being made, but if history is any indication, it’s much harder to correct a mistake than to make one. of dangerous illegal immigrants – allowing them to return to our communities.
