For eight years, we have had to deal with Obama and the Democrats forcing the Affordable Care Act into being. First, the House passed the bill in the middle of one cold, December night, without any opportunity to read or debate the bill. Then, after it was signed into law, we have seen a slow, gradual decline of economy. Companies had to lower their employees’ work hours into part-time work, because the costs of health care plans skyrocketed. We have seen premiums increase drastically for families who do not have the income to support such adjustments. And we have seen doctors leave the workforce, because the red tape had finally become too much.
The silver lining in all of this is that the American people took the time to vote on November 8, and vote they did! They gave a mandate to their re-elected and newly elected officials saying: we are DONE with progressive thoughts, take us back to the good old days of the Founding Fathers.
So here we are, early January with a new 115th Congress, and things are already looking up! Not only has Speaker Ryan and the House GOP created their game plan for repealing Obamacare, but they are also going to defund Planned Parenthood!
From Washington Post:
Republicans plan to strip Planned Parenthood of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding as part of their rapid push to repeal President Obama’s health-care reforms, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Thursday.
This is such refreshing and wonderful news for those who support the life of the unborn. Although we cannot control the private funds that can be sent to Planned Parenthood, the fact that our taxpayer funds will not go to support such heinous acts as aborting a human being. We are finally returning to our Founding Fathers’ guarantee for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
