On Tuesday, Senator Mitch McConnell proposed a Unanimous Consent agreement that would allow Obama's unemployment insurance extension to move forward -- if REID WOULD SIMPLY GUARANTEE A VOTE ON DELAYING THE ANTI-GUN OBAMACARE MANDATE.
Within the last week, we have seen where the anti-gun ObamaCare mandate is leading -- with HHS regulations to waive all federal privacy laws in order to allow psychiatrists to turn in gun owners to the FBI's NICS system.
This could potentially affect millions of gun owners! And this is just one reason why Gun Owners of America has been opposing the ObamaCare mandate for several years.
So let's review the bidding: 68% of Americans want to delay the anti-gun ObamaCare mandate. Only 55% want to extend unemployment insurance.
This is because, whereas 1.3 million would be affected by unemployment insurance, over 6,000,000 Americans have lost their insurance under ObamaCare. Not only that, another 78 million Americans -- and that’s according to the administration’s own estimates -- will lose their health insurance when ObamaCare's employer mandate kicks in.
Yet, Barack Obama has trumpeted on the front page of the New York Times that he intends to perform a sleight-of-hand: Distract Americans' attention from the fact that Obama has taken away their health care by talking about "income inequality."
Also remember this: Republicans are not demanding that the ObamaCare mandate be delayed. They're only asking for a vote.
Not surprisingly, anti-gun crazies like Senators Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer are outraged.
And six Republican defections gave them the 60 votes to overcome the filibuster and move the bill forward -- though it still remains to be seen whether they can get 60 votes to shut out any amendments on the bill itself.
But McConnell is right. Before Harry Reid came on the scene, senators had a right to offer amendments dealing with the key issues of the day. That Republicans have been forced to use this strategy is an indication of how ruthlessly partisan Harry Reid and Barack Obama have become.
So please vote against the bill and block Obama's agenda from going forward until we have a vote on delaying the anti-gun ObamaCare mandate.
