The House has an incredible opportunity to defund a massive portion of funding to Planned Parenthood and to repeal key parts of ObamaCare! The House is expected to vote Wednesday, January 6th on a budget bill titled the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act; a bill that makes budgetary changes to various federal programs. The House already passed a version of this bill in November by 246 votes before the Senate passed an improved version of it in December with 52 votes! Usually, a bill needs 60 votes to pass, but because of special rules on budget bills, the Senate passed it with 52 votes. In fact, this is the first time the Congress can pass a bill to defund Planned Parenthood and key parts of Obamacare
and send to President Obama's desk!
The Senate was able to pass this bill with its provision defunding a significant portion of federal funding for the nation's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. The Senate also improved on the House-passed bill by cutting fines contained in Obamacare related to the employer mandate and the individual mandate. It cuts the "prevention fund" which is a government slush fund, and it also repeals key taxes in Obamacare. It also added a provision to cut government subsidies for health care plans that include elective abortion coverage!
Now the House can vote to send this pro-life and anti-Obamacare bill to the President's desk! Your Representatives must hear from you to block funding for Planned Parenthood. While some Republicans didn't think the bill went far enough, it was supported by national pro-life groups and key conservative groups. It does serious damage to ObamaCare and would remove funds for Planned Parenthood—which obtains over $400 million per year in Medicaid alone.
It is crucial for House members to hear from you and urge them to vote for this bill in order to send it to the President's desk. This way, Congress will have spoken and he will bear the moral responsibility on continuing the forced partnership between the American taxpayer and Planned Parenthood. Sending the bill to the President will force him for the first time to choose to sign this bill or veto it.
Please urge your Congressmen to vote FOR the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act; and ask them to support eliminating Planned Parenthood's funding and to repeal much of ObamaCare.
