Yesterday, the US House of Representatives voted to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), aka Obamacare, recently ruled by the US Supreme Court as constitutional, because it is a tax, and Congress has authority to levy taxes.
ObamaCare impacts every American’s personal health care from before the cradle to grave; mandating a huge tax: the expenditure of tens of thousands of dollars annually for many families and huge fines on businesses and individuals who refuse to submit; and employing tens of thousands of new IRS agents to exact obedience and levy fines on the American people.
In truth, Obamacare is tyranny, heretofore unimagined in America.
Advocates laugh off the House vote to repeal, insisting that the law passed by Congress, signed by the President and upheld by the Supreme Court, is a done deal. But they underestimate the power of prayer and the determination of the American people to remain free. Some are willing, for the false security of government-run health care, to help create an over-reaching, overly powerful federal government that will use unlimited federal debt and oppressive tax and enforcement to finance it; others are not! Even if it appears to be flickering, there is still a flame of liberty burning in America.
The People are the highest authority under the US Constitution. We have power and authority greater than all three branches of federal Government put together. The states, too, have authority and many are using their authority to reject Obamacare, in the face of the lost Supreme Court battle. And our appeal is to a higher authority, still! In God We Trust! Because we are One Nation Under God, whether by Congressional action, the vote of the people at the ballot box, or even civil disobedience, if necessary, this law will ultimately be overturned.
PRAY THIS PRAYER:
May God’s people draw very near Him! May He use this and other circumstances Americans now face: economic struggles, cosmic catastrophes, terrorist threats, and the loss of liberty, including religious liberty, to stir us! May we draw from Him courage and determination to rise and take action – by prayer, by speaking out, by educating others and by urging Christians and common sense Americans to exercise their vote in November in support of candidates who will defend life, uphold religious liberty, stand for marriage and vote to defeat Obamacare. Amen.
