This is the latest stop on the Exempt America Tour which began in Lexington, KY on August 27. Since the tour kicked off, events have been held in Austin, TX; Jackson, MS; Atlanta, GA; Columbia, SC; Charlotte, NC; Richmond, VA; Nashville, TN; Montgomery, AL; Cincinnati, OH and Harrisburg, PA.
“Congress has exempted themselves from ObamaCare, businesses have been exempted, even the unions are itching for an exemption, so where is the exemption for the rest of America,” said For America Chairman Brent Bozell. “This is the last chance to stop ObamaCare before its massive subsidies and regulations go into effect January 1. Democrats have brought about this disastrous law, but it is Republicans who must unite to stop it and force Democrats to either defend the law or hold off funding.
“President Obama has already exempted Big Labor, Big Business and Congress has exempted itself. That leaves the American people on the hook to live under what Sen. Max Baucus, an ObamaCare supporter, has called a ‘train wreck.’ More than 70% of Americans favor delaying the implementation of ObamaCare. In order to delay it, the spending must stop. We will make sure Congress hears this message loud and clear,” said Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin.
ForAmerica, Tea Party Patriots and other conservative groups are not advocating for a government shutdown in order to defund ObamaCare. These groups are calling for Congress to pass a Continuing Resolution that funds every part of the government, just not one dime for ObamaCare, which even the law’s sponsor has called a train wreck.
