WASHINGTON DC - Heritage Foundation is turning up the heat on defunding Obamacare while Congress members are on August break. According to Heritage, unless Congress defunds Obamacare by the end of September, the government takeover of health care will begin implementation on October 1.
The conservative group's effort, called "Defunding Obamacare," says Obamacare would:
- Prohibit any taxpayer funds from being spent to implement or enforce Obamacare;
- Keep Americans from losing their current health coverage and being forced into Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges; and
- Allow Congress to consider Obamacare funding separately from regular government functions—there’s no need for a government shutdown
