Why the #War Isn’t Over

28Jun12

It would be too easy to give up.

I immediately thought that after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Obamacare was constitutional. I was beyond shocked at the decision. Not just because it’s blatantly obvious the Affordable Health Care Act is unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause.  But because Chief Justice John Roberts decided to make the law constitutional by writing the individual mandate was now a tax. This isn’t how the law was written or how President Obama and Democrats sold it. Roberts, and four other justices, made it this way.

Smarter people than I have written why this was the wrong decision and will hurt more than it will help. Read them.

Then decide: what’s next?

A lot of people have decided what their course of action is by donating to Mitt Romney’s campaign. That’s fantastic, but only part of the puzzle. Romney can’t do anything without a majority in the House and Senate.

That means making sure Ted Cruz wins the runoff election for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination in Texas. Standing behind Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock. Making sure Nebraska Republican Deb Fischer wins the U.S. Senate. Picking the right person in the Arizona Republican Senate race: Congressman Jeff Flake or Wil Cardon.  Deciding between Congressman Ben Quayle or Congressman Dave Schweikert in Arizona. Keeping Allen West and Joe Walsh in Congress. Voting for Congressman Connie Mack in the Florida Senate race. Helping Republican Senate candidate Wendy Long in New York.

This is what needs to be done. Donate to their campaigns.  Volunteer if you can. Encourage friends, parents, siblings and relatives on why they should vote for them.

Michelle Ray said it best: “We need the Senate. Get off of your asses.”

Not only is this true, but so is the need to keep the House and Senate’s feet to the fire. Keep. Them. Honest. If they say they’re going to do something make sure they do.

Capture the Senate. Keep the House. Win the presidency and Obamacare is repealed and replaced.

This is a war.

The health care ruling was a loss in that war.

It doesn’t mean it’s the end.

The next big battle comes November 6th.

This is a war.
