    History in the making, indeed. The 40,000 constituents who signed the Senate Conservatives Fund's
    Repeal ObamaCare Pledge in the first 24 hours since the House passed Obamacare suggest that
    historic efforts are about to be made to kill this bill before it can inflict its intended and unintended                Search this Site

    Here's a roadmap of priorities for Obamacare opponents in and out of Washington, to get us from this

    dispiriting week to January 2013:

    1. Challenge the constitutionality of H.R. 3962. Work to invalidate its requirement that all individuals

    2. Encourage states to file lawsuits against the bill. Twelve states have already pledged to do so,                    Blonde Jokes and Humor

    3. Encourage states to pass laws preventing residents from being required to buy insurance. Thirty-                    Golf - Golfing Tips

    townhalls look like giddy autograph signings. Jam Congressmen's schedules with meetings; pressure                 Realtors - Real Estate Brokers
    Senators not to sign the House's reconciliation measure; pressure House members not to sign any                   Reverse Directory
                                                                                                                      Sports Jokes and Humor
    reconciliation measure revised by the Senate.
                                                                                                                      Stress Management
                                                                                                                      Travel America
    6. Challenge the reconciliation process. Get the Senate parliamentarian to rule (correctly) that the              Travel Destinations
    House's Social Security-related provision is inappropriate for inclusion in a reconciliation bill, per the        Travel Jokes and Humor
    Byrd Rule, and must be removed.                                                                                   Travel Mexico

                                                                                                                      Login
    7. Change the reconciliation bill. Force the Senate to make changes to the reconciliation bill before
    voting on it, so that the House has to vote again on the Senate's version; then force the House to
    make changes so the Senate has to vote again; and back and forth. Strip away enough dissatisfied
    votes from at least one chamber to prevent the reconciliation measure from being passed, thus letting
    the ugly Senate bill with its backroom deals and tax on costly union health plans stand intact and                Four Smart Health Care
    paving the way for repeal.                                                                                        Reform Steps Democrats Will
                                                                                                                      Not Consider
    8. Hold up the reconciliation process. Encourage GOP Senators to tie up voting on the reconciliation
    bill in the Senate by proposing an indefinite number of amendments. Although debate on a
    reconciliation bill is limited to 20 hours (about one second per 43,000 citizens affected by the                   Categories
    legislation, by the way), there are no limitations on the number of amendments that may be proposed.
                                                                                                                      Economy
                                                                                                                      Education
    9. Take over the House and Senate. Vote Democrats out of Congress in 2010 and 2012. Vote Obama                    General
    out of office in 2012 and elect a conservative Republican who promises to repeal Obamacare. Support               Global Warming
    candidates who campaign on the promise to repeal Obamacare as their first act of the 113th Congress               Gun Control
    in January 2013. In the same way that Scott Brown annihilated his opponent in Massachusetts by                    Health Care

                                                                                                                      International - Misc
    candidates in November 2010 and 2012 should campaign on the sole promise to repeal Obamacare.                       Al Qaeda
    Dozens of Representatives and Senators have already pledged to repeal the bill, as have hundreds of                 China
    2010 Congressional candidates, including Senate hopefuls Marco Rubio in Florida, Chuck DeVore in                    France
    California, Michael Williams in Texas, and Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania.                                              Iran
                                                                                                                        Iraq
    10. Repeal H.R. 3962.                                                                                               Israel
                                                                                                                        Lebanon
                                                                                                                        North Korea
    11. Amend the Constitution. If necessary, get three-quarters of the states-perhaps the same 38                      Russia
    considering legislation banning the mandate-to amend the U.S. Constitution to prohibit the federal                  Saudi Arabia
    mandate, thus invalidating the bill.                                                                                Venezuela
                                                                                                                        Zimbabwe
    12. Encourage noncompliance with the bill as a form of civil disobedience. There may be 17,000 new                Politics
                                                                                                                        Freedom Of Speech
    IRS agents under H.R. 3962, but there are about 170,000,000 of us who oppose the bill.                              Taxes
                                                                                                                      Religion
    As Paul Ryan said in the House Sunday night: "If this passes, the quest to reclaim the American idea              Satire
    is not over. The fight to reapply our founding principles is not finished; it's just a steeper climb. And it is
    a climb that we will make."
                                                                                                                       Archives
    Let's give ourselves a boost on the backs of the complacent and wholly unprepared socialized health
    care supporters who think the fight is over and they have won.                                                    View Archives
