Letter to Speaker Boehner
Dear Honorable Speaker Boehner :
I have never written you before, but this issue is too important to remain silent. President Obama has promised to "fundamentally transform" America and his promise will become reality if the Affordable Care Act aka "Obamacare" is fully funded. The act is flawed and unconstitutional despite what the Supreme Court has ruled. One sixth of our economy will be impacted and we are seeing unintended consequences of the legislation such as increased health care premiums, doctors leaving private practices, and employers cutting full time hours for American workers. I implore you to use the House of Representatives "power of the purse" to defund Obamacare by refusing to fund it. Saying you want to repeal the legislation and not actually stopping it when you have the opportunity to do so is the epitome of hypocrisy. The majority of the American people are opposed to this legislation and will be watching the House's action. Failure to represent the will of the American people would be a dereliction of your duty.
