Throw Democrats out of office

It should come as no surprise that the Secretary of Human and Health Services recently attempted to use Obamacare as an excuse to force church organizations to provide services they find morally repugnant. Anti-Christian and anti-Catholic bigotry lie at the core of Democrat ideology, after all.

At least as bad, however, is the “compromise” granted to his subjects by His Holiness, Barack the Magnificent. The compromise consists of forcing private businesses to provide something for free that is easily affordable at any pharmacy. “Free,” of course, is Democrat code for “rob from everyone (including the poor) to provide something to people who didn’t ask for it, don’t need it, and could afford it if they wanted it.”

Just imagine it: If the secretary of HHS determines that having a pony is required for “preventative health care,” she could just as easily require insurance companies to provide everyone with one of those for “free” as well. I counted the phrase “as determined by the secretary” in the Affordable Care Act no less than 118 times. Apparently, the Obamacare law is whatever the secretary feels like it should be.

The only solution to this breathtaking seizure of dictatorial power is to vote Democrats out of office at all levels of government, from president through county commission. November is just around the corner. Get active now!
