Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and President Barack Obama are holding the American people hostage as they try to force their big government agenda on our great country ("Obama and Republicans struggle to break fiscal impasse," Oct. 11). We conservatives must now stand up for the Republicans in Congress as they face these daily vicious attacks from the left
We need the help of every conservative we can reach right away in any way we can.
Now that the federal government has shut down, the Washington establishment has rolled out a ruthless "fear campaign" to try to scare tea party senators and representatives into submission. These Obamacare defenders are absolutely shameless in their gutless gutter tactics. President Obama claimed only last week that anyone in favor of doing away with Obamacare is shutting down our economy.
Senator Reid has claimed over and over again that stopping Obamacare would be the same as denying health care coverage to millions of Americans, which is nothing but a bogus left wing lie.
These leftists are willing to say or do anything to save Obamacare. What we do over the next few days is crucial to the success of the effort to stop Obamacare.
Tea party followers must continue alerting our activists all across America with up-to-the-minute analysis of the legislative battle over this funding bill. If we do not win this battle, we will be stuck with Obamacare for years to come.
We must stand with our conservative allies in Washington for as long as this battle lasts. We need to show the leftists that we won't accept any more compromises. We have to demand an end to Obamacare, once and for all. Obamacare is not for America.
