Not too late to defund Obama health plan

Published: Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

There is a chance that by the end of September, the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, can be starved of its discretionary and mandatory spending, but only if we demand that our elected representatives defund Obamacare in the upcoming continuing resolution.

Our economy and health care system cannot survive, let alone thrive, so long as the train wreck that is Obamacare moves forward.

Call or write U.S. Reps. Cheri Bustos and Adam Kinzinger and U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk and tell them you want to keep your plan, you want to continue working 40-hour weeks, and you want Obamacare defunded.
