On Tuesday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin signed the petition to defund Obamacare, throwing her support behind the efforts of Senators like Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX). She said the “time for rhetoric” and “ceremonial” votes in Congress was over.
“Forced enrollment in Obama’s ‘Unaffordable Care Act’ is weeks away,” Palin said in a statement. “This beast must be stopped–not funding it. Today, Todd and I joined with many of our fellow citizens to urge those in the U.S. Senate to not fund Obamacare.”
Palin added that “We The People must continue to make our voices heard and hold those elected to serve this great nation accountable.”
“Those in the Senate and those seeking to serve there must stand strong against this devastating program before it reveals its true face now recognized by both sides of the aisle as the bureaucratic and economic beast that will deny our families, our businesses, and our sick the ability to access health care,” she said. “The time for rhetoric and ceremonial votes in Congress is over. The time to take serious action to stop Obamacare is now. Join us in urging Senators–Don’t Fund Obamacare! Just remember–if you fund it, you own it!”
