ObamaCare’s automatic money machine
Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
ObamaCare may well be the greatest fraud ever
perpetrated on the American people. As the
current Congress has discovered, their
predecessors in the Pelosi/Reid 111th Congress
buried many “self-funding” provisions in their
healthcare bill. This trickery was designed
to make it impossible for subsequent Congresses
to “undo” this tangled mess. But there is a
solution: Cut it to pieces as soon as possible!
See my urgent message below – Mat.
Congress is once again facing a Continuing Resolution (CR)
Bill to keep our federal government operating.
As debate begins, attention has turned to the ObamaCare
“self-funding” provisions that the ultraliberal 111th
Congress wrote into the law to provide AUTOMATIC funding
for 10 years!
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and Rep. Michele Bachmann
(R-MN) have called on the House leadership to
sign a pledge to include a total defunding of
ObamaCare in any proposed CR.
To put these self-funding mandates into perspective,
Congressman King wrote a very insightful Op-Ed piece which
was published on-line by Politico comparing “undoing”
ObamaCare to an ancient puzzle faced by Alexander the
++The ObamaCare Gordian Knot.
King’s article first reacquaints us with the fabled history
of what was called the “Gordian Knot.” It seems that in
333 BC, Alexander the Great faced the challenge of untying
the enormous and complicated Gordian Knot. An oracle had
proclaimed that whoever solved the knot’s challenge would
receive the kingship of the ancient nation of Phrygia.
Representative King’s article goes on to explain:
“Alexander drew his sword and slashed the knot
in two. The ‘Alexandrian solution’ was born.
Alexander received the kingdom of Phrygia, and
he went on to spread civilization throughout
the known world.”
“ObamaCare is today’s Gordian knot. The law was
drafted to be incredibly difficult for lawmakers
to unravel. When then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
President Barack Obama, and Senate Minority
Leader Harry Reid drafted ObamaCare, they quietly
included provisions that automatically spend
$105.5 billion over the next 10 years to implement
“Unprecedented in scope, these self-enacting
provisions grant ObamaCare its own self-contained,
automatic money machine. These are the resources
that fertilize this malignant tumor, which is
extending its roots into every aspect of our health
care system. These roots are tightening their grip,
despite the House’s vote to repeal it, the public’s
opposition to it, and the decisions of two federal
courts ruling it unconstitutional. These roots are
the ObamaCare Gordian Knot.”
++Liberty Counsel supports all efforts to DEFUND ObamaCare!
We applaud efforts to take away ObamaCare’s funding at every level. But that’s not the only way to defeat this dangerous law. In the spirit of “the Alexandrian solution,” we are
also swinging a very sharp sword of litigation at it!
In fact, we have deployed a THREE-pronged strategy to win
this battle. We are: Fighting in the courts; pushing for
repeal in the legislature; and working to defund ObamaCare
through legislative or administrative processes.
Most importantly, my team and I are just weeks away from a
major showdown with Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice (DOJ) at the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals over the constitutionality of the personal “mandates” in ObamaCare.
Please consider a special gift to Liberty Counsel to help us defeat ObamaCare in court by going here:
++ObamaCare’s damage gets worse from week to week.
Beside the fact that the number of “waivers” from
having to comply with ObamaCare’s dictates passed
1,000 (!) this week, it is notable that Rep. John
Conyers (D-MI), ranking Member of the powerful
House Judiciary Committee, just admitted that
the law is a good “platform” for creating a
socialist, “single-payer” system!
We should not be surprised that the steady inroads ObamaCare is making in our healthcare system are intended to lead to
something even more oppressive – a full-blown, nationalized
Health Service like the one Medicare Chief Dr. Donald
When recently asked by CNS News if he foresaw a single-payer healthcare system in the United States, Conyers answered,
“Of course…every industrial country on the planet
already has a universal system of healthcare.”
Each week ObamaCare survives and sends its roots deeper into America’s healthcare system, th
