Republicans cannot allow Syria to distract from derailing ObamaCare

WAKE FOREST, N.C, September 11, 2013 - The issue on whether or not to allow full-funding of ObamaCare is not a joke, it is not fun, and it is certainly not a laughing matter.

Even so President Obama and his supporters are surely hoping that the American people allow the distraction of Syria to take their minds off of the implementation of ObamaCare until after it is funded on October 1, 2013.

The current situation in Syria and whether or not it is advisable or appropriate for the United States to attack Syria (with or without Congressional approval) is important, filled with possible grave consequences. But one should ask himself/herself: Is taking action against Syria because of that government’s ALLEGED use of chemical weapons against citizens in the USA’s vital national interest? There is no one who can categorically and confidently state that the answer is yes.

But if you turn your attention to the upcoming deadline for the United States’ budget and probable need for Congress to approve yet another continuing resolution by September 30, 2013, you will find that there is no doubt that the funding of ObamaCare is the pivotal issue.

The oxymoronic “Affordable Health Care Act” is anything but affordable, and it has little to do with improvement in our nation’s healthcare.

This legislation is so odious that President Obama, at the urging of many of his advisors, has already granted several unconstitutional exemptions to what is officially the law of the land. By so doing, he has picked winners and losers. The ultimate losers are the American taxpayers on whose shoulders are borne the increasing weight of paying for the implementation of ObamaCare.

Meanwhile in Congress, Democrats circle the wagons in support of the President’s signature legislation. The Republicans, despite overwhelming rejection of the bill by the general public, continue to participate in a circular firing squad instead of facilitating the emergence of a true leader within their ranks who can encourage their party to find a common ground strategy that will derail ObamaCare.

If ObamaCare is fully implemented, it will be game-set-match and lights out that will essentially hand over control of one-sixth of the USA’s economy to government bureaucrats while furthering the insidious Progressive/Liberal agenda.

We should not dismiss the crisis in Syria as irrelevant. Rather, we should realize that comparatively speaking, there is a much bigger fish to fry: Derailing ObamaCare needs to remain a top category issue for Republicans.

Future generations will look back to evaluate how well or poorly our elected officials acted on what really mattered to the nation.
