The Supreme Court may have made its unpopular verdict on Obamacare, but the real verdict will be in November when our voices are heard. We have known since the day Obamacare was rammed through Congress at the final hour that the law was bad.
We knew that this new law would add to the deficit, increase taxes, grow the national debt, and raise the cost of health care services.
For months we listened to President Obama try to convince the American people that his new law was not a tax. However, the nation’s highest court called it just that, a tax. While America faced a difficult recession, President Obama and Democrats passed a law with 21 tax increases costing more than $675 billion over the next 10 years – So much for defending the middle class.
After more than 3 years since Obama took office, the effects of his disastrous policies are obvious- our economy continues to struggle, millions of Americans are still unemployed, and our National Debt is nearly $16 trillion. Today we know that the only way we can fix the problems caused by Obamacare is to repeal it and replace it. To do that we must put Republicans in office and Mitt Romney in the White House.
On Saturday July 21st, we will host our 36th Annual Statesmen’s Dinner at the Gaylord Convention Center in Nashville. This year’s dinner will feature keynote speaker Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas Governor and host of Fox News show Huckabee. Make plans to join us as we celebrate our accomplishments and look ahead to victory in November! You can purchase your tickets online HERE.
Finally, as we pause this week to celebrate Independence Day, I hope you will join me and my family as we reflect on those who have sacrificed so much for our country and pray for those who remain in harm’s way. We truly live in the greatest country in the world; and we can thank our men and women in uniform who protect and perpetuate our country’s greatness ever day.
As a reminder, don’t forget to text “TNGOP” to 66502 for the latest text message updates and alerts.
Thanks for all that you do, and I hope to see you soon!
