CWALAC Supports Efforts to Defund ObamaCare within Fiscal Legislation
Washington D.C. - Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) CEO and President Penny Nance has issued the following statement in response to efforts to include defunding ObamaCare within fiscal legislation:
"It's a priority for American families to balance their budgets. Yet our federal government, for the last four years, has not lived by the same standards. Instead, the government is living paycheck to paycheck, while accruing debt far beyond its means. In any American household, the budgeter will tell you, 'If hard choices aren't made, the result could be catastrophic.'
"For the past four years, Congress has passed continuing resolutions to keep the federal government afloat. It's like living paycheck to paycheck, but on a federal level. Now, hard choices have to be made. Some members of Congress agree that defunding ObamaCare should be included in deficit measures. Those who are leading the charge, however, understand that there is nothing more damaging to American families than the implementation of ObamaCare.
"We have seen over the past two years that the Congressional Budget Office's (CBO) original assessment of how ObamaCare would affect the deficit was miscalculated. Now, up to 20 million Americans will lose their current plans; and over the next 75 years, another $6.2 trillion will be added to our national debt.
"President Obama promised Americans that if we liked our current health care plan, we could keep it. Two years after its passage, we see that his statement was false. Attached to ObamaCare is the employer mandate, which already has dozens of American business filing lawsuits against the government.
"The pitfalls of this law are endless. No matter how bad things are now, they can always get a lot worse. It's important to fix these problems at the beginning, instead of waiting for larger problems to be diagnosed. It's time for Congress to make the tough decisions and fix its budget problems, starting with ObamaCare."
