That’s all that’s really needed – the single thread to be pulled

Individual Mandate - Obamacare and Ivanka dressesIt’s about time that the DC Republican Congresstwits got a bit smarter! Reformated, emphasis mine:

 Senate GOP Tax Plan to Include Repeal of Health Law Individual Mandate

GOP leaders have been cautious about bogging down the tax bill with controversial health-care provisions, but have been suggesting they could include the repeal because it would generate revenue that could be used to pay for tax cuts elsewhere. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) said it would be part of the tax bill. “The Senate Finance Committee has decided to include that,” Mr. McConnell said.

Sen. John Thune (R., S.D.), a member of the Senate Finance Committee, said Republicans intend to use the savings generated by repealing the individual mandate to lower taxes for middle-income households. “It’ll be distributed in the form of middle-income tax relief,” he said.

…“It’s been whipped,” Mr. Thune said, referring to the process of rounding up and counting votes.

While they’re at it, get rid of the employee mandate as well. Between those two, Obamacare will fail completely and absolutely.  It has always been a farce on the part of the Democrats to tout a “marketplace” that is nothing but a Government mandate or “we’ll take some of your private property away for disobeying us in you not wanting to buy the products we demand you buy”.

This is also like Right To Work.  Instead of going whole hog as the Republicans have been doing, simply pass a law / change the regulations that force Government or private companies to deduct union dues out of workers paychecks.  Let the unions do what is really their job – extract those dues directly from their worker / members.

Let them EARN their own pay; it’s worked well in Wisconsin!

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
