Ping! California Families Can’t Take Back Control of Their Healthcare Choices Until Capps is Out of Office

WASHINGTON — Smart phones in California are blowing up! And it’s not anything to LOL about. Last week’s Supreme Court decision means that ObamaCare will stay on the books, unless Californians repeal Lois Capps in November.

The National Republican Congressional Committee has launched a new TV ad reflecting the reaction of voters in California: The only way to stop ObamaCare is to repeal Capps. As long as Capps is in office, California workers, families and seniors will be stripped of affordable access and will be forced to absorb huge tax hikes as a result of her repeated support for ObamaCare.

“Californians are talking about this decision, and they don’t like what they see,” said NRCC Deputy Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “By slashing Medicare and burdening job creators, ObamaCare has made a bad economy worse for California families. Lois Capps thinks that government can control the healthcare choices of Californians better than they can themselves, and voters will have the final say in November.”

An email from Becky Kolberg, Chairman, Contra Costa Republican Party to supporters:

Dear Contra Costa Republicans,

The Founders of this great nation must be turning in their graves at the blow to our freedom that rested in the hands of just one individual. By upholding President Obama’s healthcare legislation, the Supreme Court has given the green light to a Federal Government takeover of our entire healthcare system. The future of liberty hangs by a thread, making November’s election more critical than ever. (more…)

Re: The Politics of ObamaCare

The Supreme Court’s decision does not change the facts about ObamaCare: it’s a bad law that America neither wants nor can afford. And now the only way for voters to end it and pursue true reform is to vote Republican in November. This hurts President Obama’s reelection prospects, making his path to 270 electoral votes increasingly difficult.

Republicans are in agreement with the American people on this issue. Especially in battleground states, voters are more likely to oppose ObamaCare than to support it. (more…)

From the National Republican Congressional Committee:

A Supreme Court Decision to Overturn ObamaCare Could Provide a Needed Jolt to Small Business Job Creators 

  • Small business job creators are especially hopeful that a Supreme Court decision that overturns ObamaCare will provide a jolt to their businesses.
  • The fact is that ObamaCare’s burdensome regulations on small businesses have hurt hiring and reduced small businesses’ ability to provide coverage for their employees.
  • That hasn’t stopped Democrats from repeatedly going to bat for their healthcare disaster, including for some of the worst provisions that directly harm small businesses and send jobs overseas.

Perhaps it is fitting that the justices began the week by throwing President Obama a bone.

Because later this week the Supreme Court will deliver the final death blow to his “progressive” agenda and at long last set some far-out perimeter for the federal government’s galloping encroachment on Americans’ dearest rights.
