Your tax dollars are being used to advertise Obamacare. For example, to attract hip, young people to sign up for its insurance exchanges, Oregon will use your taxes to brand coffee cups with Obamacare advertisements. And in Kentucky, officials are planning a beer-and-bourbon tour to try to attract young people to enroll in Obamacare.

The Heritage Foundation’s Chris Jacobs explains why this is concerning:

[T]he gusher of federal spending on exchange grants and related promotional activities demonstrates the problem with Obamacare. At a time when our nation’s debt is approaching $17 trillion, using taxpayer funds to buy latte cups, sunscreen, and portable toilets represents a massive amount of waste. It’s yet another reason why Congress should act to defund Obamacare and refuse to spend a single dime on such frivolous expenditures

For more examples of how your tax dollars are being used to promote Obamacare, click here.

Do you agree with Heritage experts that Obamacare should be defunded and repealed?

Hell yes!

Terrance May - July 12, 2013

This advertising is just one more indication how hard the guy Mr. Obama, is trying to sell his UN-affordable healthcare plan. If it was any good for the people of this country he would not have to do such a hard-selling job.

Don Severson - July 12, 2013

repeal/defund Obamacare

Don - July 12, 2013

Not only should we defund Obamacare, we should defund Obama,

Thomas Wright - July 12, 2013

I definitely think Obamacare should be defunded and repealed. Any lengthy document with mega regulations has not an iota of a chance to be made accountable. The fact that our lawmakers, paid with our taxes, allowed this tome to exist shows how they waste our money.

Mark Koch - July 12, 2013

Repeal Obamacare and impeach Obama!! Had enough of the lies and corruption I fear for the future is our country!!

Terri Sutphin - July 12, 2013

Not only should it be defunded, it should be repealed. What a waste of my money!

Klm - July 12, 2013

Defund,do away with and bury 6 feet under….it is just no good

Henry Miarka - July 12, 2013

Obmacare must be repealed. It is a disaster for America. Americans were not even allowed to know the contents of the bill before passage. It was ramrodded through congress. Americans don’t need big government to controll all aspects of our lives.
Let’s turn the direction of our country around before it is too late. We need stron leaders who can articulate constitutional principles and explain its benefits and the benefits of a free responsible sociey.
Henry J. Miarka

Virginia Carroll - July 12, 2013

Tax payer funds should not be used to pay for any government advertising….

REPEAL OBAMACARE!

Jay Adams - July 12, 2013

Yes, it should be defunded and/or repealed as soon as possible.

Susan Leeper - July 12, 2013

I can’t recall the government ever PUSHING us citizens into a program that supposed to be wonderful as nothing before. And especially wasting good money to advertise, promote, cajole us to buy it. This is an unacceptable use of taxpayer money. It makes me furious.

Paul - July 12, 2013

God Almighty send swift and severe judgment on this apostate nation!

marion cummins - July 12, 2013

I fully agree with Don

Thomas D. Heck - July 12, 2013

Yes we should defund Obamacare !!!!! It will hurt everyone!!!

Sharon Tipton - July 12, 2013

Defund or better yet, kill the ObamaCare bill!! Then don’t stop there, stop giving billions to Terrorists Countries like Egypt and Syria and more – get the idiots out of the WH and then get down to business with a new President, a new Senate Leader and possibly a new House of Representatives leader! That will fix America the right way! GOD help America!

Frank - July 12, 2013

Kill it!

ed j Cipriano - July 12, 2013

i do believe that obama care should not be defunded.The polls show that a majority of the people would perfer patient controled health care not government controled health care.
I have a company who has always provided health care for its employes and all members of their family. Our workers are going to be hurt if obama care continues to move forward.

Patrick Nelson - July 12, 2013

I absolutely agree obamacare should be defunded and repealed. We should defund any bill, committee or activity that is not expressly allowed within the constitution.

David - July 12, 2013

We have seen enough negative issues surfacing as we move forward into the implementation phase of Obamacare which strongly support the need to revisit this program. Let’s defund the current program and make the changes necessary before it’s too late.

randy - July 12, 2013

I hear more government ads on talk radio than I ever have. How much do these ads cost? Defund the ads.

Allan Price, MD, MPH - July 12, 2013

As a practicing Internal Medicine physician, I will be retiring from medicine and begin a new vocation and career effective 12/31/13 if Obamacare is still in place. The quality and availability of good medical care will take a nosedive in 2014.

Jo Johnson - July 12, 2013

It is not enough to defund and/or repeal Obamacare. Neither of those things will happen without a reasonable alternative.

Elaine Mattingly - July 12, 2013

Obama is not stupid! He is appealing to the younger generation of people who have probably no real understanding of the disastrous ramifications of ObamanationCare and haven’t a clue as to how it would be a violation of our Constitutional freedoms, most likely because they have never read or studied our founding documents that may have been ignored in the liberal education so many are receiving! Also, if Mrs. Obama is so concerned about the “health” of young people, why wouldn’t this worst “lady” (NOT “first” lady) encourage her partner in crime to be concerned about the health disadvantages to the young folks. The truth is that they could care less and are out to get what they want by any means, and sadly, those means are always bad for our once great nation!!

sam jones - July 12, 2013

REPEAL / DEFUND AND IMPEACH OBAMA AND HIS SOCIALIST HEALTHCARE

John Shreve - July 12, 2013

What a crock! The taxpayers are getting stiffed again. The quicker we can get this Obamacare defunded the better.

Mrs Barbara M Sayre - July 12, 2013

Definitely. We are totally sunk if it is not.
The elderly– (I’m one) will be gently? killed – with no doctors
or care available. Many will die – not only the elderly…young children for a lack of medical care…

Robert Turner - July 12, 2013

Defund as soon as possible if not sooner!!!

John Estep - July 12, 2013

Of course, the Republican controlled House of Representatives should not fund the Affordable Care Act, more correctly referred to as Obamacare. The power of the purse is about the only power they possess, and to not exercise that power is dereliction of duty.

JoAnn Bair - July 12, 2013

Obamacare is an obamination. Let’s get rid of it now.

Elizabeth - July 12, 2013

We American citizens don’t want Obamacare. But our congressional representatives won’t listen to us–not phone calls, email or letters!! What are we to do?

Patricia - July 12, 2013

Totally, completely gone for ever. Is there an eraser that is big enough to do the job??

Lani - July 12, 2013

This country was NOT founded on socialist principles. We are/were a republic, but this bho person, keeps trying to ram socialism down our throats by pushing for this u.n.-(un)affordable (lack of) health care debacle. I wish our congress would just defund the nightmare and get on with, whatever it is they do, on a daily basis,
to destroy America.

Carol - July 12, 2013

Defund Obamacare and all of his assinine programs!!!

Jon H. Clayton - July 12, 2013

As the biggest scam ever attempted to be put over on the American public, it definitely should be defunded and
appealed. There are far more workable ways of providing affordable healthcare for all.

Keith McPhee - July 12, 2013

obozocare needs de-funded and repealed. Then obozo needs removed from office and put in prison.

Roger Newcomb - July 12, 2013

Defund it NOW, and repeal it ASAP.
Not only are virtually all the promises made totally fictitious, but Obamacare will bury the taxpayers under a mountain of debt. The way the law is written it gives the Secretary of HHS complete discretion to write implementing regulations any way she (he) wants. Further, the rationing of care for seniors (I’m 74) means I will have to pay out of pocket for many things. I’m now very healthy, still certified to fly aircraft, but it’s going to get increasingly expensive!

Suzanne Patenaude - July 12, 2013

Yes – I agree 2 million % with everything said above. I am beginning to give up – conservatives talk a lot but NOTHING ever gets done!!

Mary Johnson - July 12, 2013

Since they are pushing obamacare ads on port o pottys, maybe they will give out free cigaretts and/or cigars with every visit.

Adam Jackson - July 12, 2013

Yes, defund and repeal Obamacare. We cannot afford this monstrosity.
Someone please tell Nancy Pelosi that we are learning what is in the so called “Affordable Health Care Bill” and we don’t like what we see.

Walt Straub - July 12, 2013

Defund Obamacare

Edward Sobus - July 12, 2013

Repeal, defund and ground AF1, so Obama has to stay home as well. No more fund raisers and vacations. It is his turn to give something back. Obamacare would be a great start…repeal it.

Greg - July 12, 2013

Not only should obamacare be repealed, but Obama should be repealed (impeached).

Linda Kitchens - July 12, 2013

Definitely!

Greg - July 12, 2013

No Tax dollars should be used to “campaign” for Obamacare under any circumstances. How does he get away with doing this. It is not how tax money should be spent by any stretch of the imagination.

It does say this bill stinks and will do us in….

Ron Dillon - July 12, 2013

This has been a bad bill from the very start. Any person that understands economics 101 realize this will cost jobs, increase cost of health care and limit health care to all Americans.

Earl Elsea - July 12, 2013

Absolutely! Defund Obamacare, and block immigration.

Elizabeth Holloway - July 12, 2013

Oh, YES! Not only is Obamacare a disaster, Obama is a disaster for this country with his lies and corruption & his hatred for this country and its history. The lap dog mainstream media is as much at fault for continuing to support this man and the destruction of this country.

Barbara Carnahan - July 12, 2013

Please repeal it immediately and while you’re at it repeal the instigators of it. I have NEVER seen such rapid-fire and unrelenting attempts to take our country to its knees. Obamacare is a huge one, but just one in a long line of treacherous assaults on Freedom and Liberty in our Republic over the last five years. God bless America!

Jim Workman - July 12, 2013

Of course. Republicans must do everything in their power to stop this monstrosity.

Elizabeth Holloway - July 12, 2013

Obamacare is a disaster and so is Obama!

JCL - July 12, 2013

During the next election cycle, I believe would should vote against any Republican members running for Congress. Then there would be know one for Democratic party to blame for their failure to govern. The only real difference in the well entrenched members of Congress is party affiliation title. Follow the (pork) money.

judy davis - July 12, 2013

This is disgusting! He thinks our money is his money.
Defund /repeal Obamacare immediately and abolish the IRS! We are getting closer to Naziism every day. The Obamacare would be run by the IRS who are targeting honest Americans.

Weston Francis Edwards - July 12, 2013

Today I sent emails to both of my senators for their failure to enforce the balance of power our constitution provides. This is just another nail in the coffin. The legislative branch is nothing but a bunch of gutless wonders that does not have the fortitude to tell this idiot president that enough is enough.

Mark - July 12, 2013

Repeal and redo the socialist health care initiative. It is unfair, unaffordable and immorally lead us into a greater financial and social crisis.

Bill Buhl - July 12, 2013

Yes, Obamacare should be defunded. We all need to tell our Senators and Representatives in Washington to act on that.

David Bower - July 12, 2013

This is another outrageous attempt by Obama to manipulate the uninformed. He continues to divide this country and place further in debt.

Pazuzu - July 12, 2013

Oust the dictator. Sic Semper Tyrranis!

Sarah Smila - July 12, 2013

Just one more example of the corruption in D.C>

Gus Nixon - July 12, 2013

Of course, defund and remove this burdon from our nation. It will surely go down in history as the perfect example of liberal diliance into a matter they clearly did not understand. Heavy doses of bureauacracy smothers good medical care.

John Borns - July 12, 2013

Obamacare is a bloated disaster that could cost much more than expected and decrease medical service for all. It Must be defunded and repealed.

Michael E. Fowler - July 12, 2013

This Man has committed so many impeachable offenses that it is scary. Where is the “GUTS” in Congress to deal a final blow to this Obamanation!!!

H. - July 12, 2013

Helene – July 12, 2013

Congress should delay no further in DEFUNDING & REPEALING this evil and destructive monster, Obamacare! God, help Congress to begin to do what is right and good for the sake of the survival of our once great nation and its citizens before it’s too late and America is totally destroyed by this anti-American Administration. May God forgive, save and bless America!

Don - July 12, 2013

Obamacare and all vestiges of presidential authority,
since his inauguration in 2008, should be expunged.
Barak Obama’s rhetoric has been, and is, inflamatory and
divisive. Barak Obama is an international joke and an
embarrassment to our great country.
President Obama has far exceded cause for impeachment.

Jack B - July 12, 2013

yes!

Dennis Durst - July 12, 2013

Repeal / defund Obamacare

Deane - July 12, 2013

absolutely agree

DES - July 12, 2013

agree completely

SPENCER MATHEWS - July 12, 2013

Obamacare MUST be repealed.

paul simon - July 12, 2013

Let’s see the real birth certificate….No natural born citz…then all signed bills void…..

Laurie Yankovich - July 12, 2013

It wasn’t wanted by the people it affects when it was established and it isn’t wanted now. It is high time for congress to finally show consideration for our great nation and fulfill its constitutional responsibilities. Congress, fund not one cent for this absurd piece of so-called legislation!

Donald Cox - July 12, 2013

Mr “O” is so engrossed with hs desires that ALL day to day decisions are blocked out

Robert N Ivy - July 12, 2013

Repeal and/or defund Obamacare. We can’t keep printing money when there are more recepients of aid than there are actual working people. More going out than coming in, a sure way to bankrupt.

Dennis - July 12, 2013

I don’t know why no one is talking about the effect obama care is going to have on Medicare. OC. has already robbed 750 billion from Medicare and that is just the begining.
More troubling to me is the fact that OC can not work as long as Medicare is in effect. People that are 55 years of age or less will not see Medicare after having paid into MC all of there working lives. Because once a person is enrolled into OC there will not be any reason to switch to MC at the age of 65. Also before the age of 65 every one working will still be paying for MC as is required by law (FICA) now thru payroll. These people will be forced to pay for 2 government medical plans.
We have to get OC repealed period. Don’t repeal and replace as I keep hearing. This will just lead to govenment health Ins. a little farther down the road. Stop this maddness now!

E Kurie - July 12, 2013

Is there no way to stop this blatant theft of the U.S. Treasury? That is not obama’s or the HHS money.

Dan - July 12, 2013

Defund, repeal, and IMPEACH . . . . DO IT or GO HOME. You work for us, not yourselves.

Myra schliesing - July 12, 2013

Obamacare should be defunded, repealed and Obama should be impeached!

Pauline Swanson - July 12, 2013

ABSOLUTELY!! Repeal of Obamacare is VITAL to our survival!

Floyd E. Ballard - July 12, 2013

That’s what will happen when you have a Democrat governor. We should be aRight to Work state. Not with a Dumocrat governor and legislators.

pokey5735 - July 12, 2013

Defund Obamacare NOW!

John LaMarr - July 12, 2013

Defund, Repeal and Impeach:
It’s the right thing to do.

Robert Ruppert - July 12, 2013

Hell No!!

P caplan - July 12, 2013

Yes, I agree that Obamacare should be defended and repealed. Obamacare accomplishes none of the goals of reform, e.,g.,affordability, expansion of coverage and quality of care. Also, it is a job killer and a drain on our economy. It will degrade our society, as health care rationing will be the result.

Free market reforms, such as the purchase of medical insurance across state lines, would help to reduce costs. Instead, Obamacare is raising the cost to individuals. Defund and repeal Obamacare ( Orwell could not have selected a more ironic name than “The Afforable Care Act).

Dean Newman - July 12, 2013

Not only is Obamacare a health care and economic quagmire it is a cultural and motivational disaster. The big question is why does our government–D.C. elitists of the worst kind–constantly undermine indidvidual responsibilty and freedom. Guess we all know the reason, but sucks as always.

Ellen - July 12, 2013

Yes, Obamacare should be 100% defunded. It is one of the worst pieces of legislation to pass in the history of the country. All it does is increase the size of government and increase the cost of health care. It will be impossible to implement and rationed care will decide who is worth saving and who is not.

Marti - July 12, 2013

Of course. It should have never been passed in the first place and then the SCOTUS had a chance to redeem the people and they blew it. Except for divine intervention, we seem to be alone.

Harvey Keiser - July 12, 2013

Definitely repeal Obamacare. By the way, do you think they have read it yet?

Great Grandma - July 12, 2013

Yes Obama Care Needs to be defunded and repealed. It never should have been passed. If there were a law that the bills had to be not only read but understood before sa legislator could vote on them we would have way fewer bad laws

L HARRIS - July 12, 2013

Absolutely DEFUND this outrageous Obamacare!!! I shudder to think what historians will say about this administration and actions….if our country lasts!

CBC - July 12, 2013

I agree !! Hell yes and get rid of Obama’s spending ,etc,etc,etc ……

John Smith - July 12, 2013

I don’t think that our tax dollars should be used in any political ads to begin with. Taxes are something that we have no choice in, and using them to fund something that we don’t support is wrong. There should be a law that makes such activities criminal.

As for Obamacare, I wish someone would do something real and just get rid of it.

Sharon Teter - July 12, 2013

Without question – YES! Defund Obamacare now!!

Pat Hartis - July 12, 2013

I can’t think of any other law that needs to be advertised.

Elizabeth Clark - July 12, 2013

absolutely! if it is not good enough for him and his cronies and all of the senate and congress, then it is not good enough for the American people

Linda - July 12, 2013

I agree with Don, defund Obamacare AND Obama.

Kevin Glynn - July 12, 2013

It was un-American, unthinkable, unreadable, unfathomable, unconstitutional and unrealistic when it was “deemed” to have passed the House. Now, we find that it’s unworkable,
unimplementable and unwanted by the majority of the american people.

Beverly R - July 12, 2013

I have been against Obamacare from the beginning. It is the UNaffordable healthcare law. It should be defunded and then repealed. Congress should not be allowed to vote on a law this large (especially without reading it).

Ronald Hooker - July 12, 2013

I was so stunned that I was light headed when Roberts swung to pass it in the first place.DEFUND AND REPEAL NOW.

robert - July 12, 2013

Obama care should be repealed in it’s entirety, as should many government programs that are not supported by the Constitution.

Kelly Thieneman - July 12, 2013

Defund, Repeal AND Impeach!!!

Wendy - July 12, 2013

Obama care will decay all that is left of the caring medical field and leave us with medical specialists with their hands tied. The doctors will have no incentive to achieve great things/ Do not re elect anyone that has agreed to Obama care.

Ronald Hooker - July 12, 2013

I was so stunned I was light headed when Roberts swung with the liberals to pass it in the first place. DEFUND AND REPEAL NOW. Also, It seems that nearly every day a new presidential edict (in spite of the Constitution) oozes out of the White Houses can of gruel. It reminds me of Europe in the thirties. If we don’t regain our conservative family jewels soon I fear they will take our country away from us one chip at a time.

c

Frank Birri - July 12, 2013

Repeal/defund Obamacare!!!

Peggy Pharr - July 12, 2013

Does the question even need to be asked? Obamacare needs to be defunded immediately and repealed ASAP!
Might be interesting to send Heritage on it’s own ‘Beer and Booze Tour’ along with Obama so there will be someone to “interpret” what he is telling the young, hip, groupies (i.e. tell the truth and the reality of what it will look like on their paychecks, assuming they work and receive one!)

milton reggio - July 12, 2013

yes Obamacare should be defunded and repealed

eleanor edmondson - July 12, 2013

Yes, this year we need to repeal and defund Obamacare. I can not believe that he is posting ads in port-a-potties for Obamacare. Then in 2014 we need to firm our hold on the House and take the Senate away from Harry Reid. This will give us the power to finally IMPEACH the imposter passing himself off as a president.

John - July 12, 2013

Mark has said it all. Hell yes! And, yes Obama should be removed from office for refusing to carry out the duties of the President to faithfully uphold and defend the laws of the country. Also for making up his own laws.

mike wiant - July 12, 2013

when is this country going to wake up and vote out the liberal morons? defund obamacare.

Nelson Whipple - July 12, 2013

The only rational thing to do.

peter e bentivegna MD - July 12, 2013

I have been living the future of healthcare for 20 years in MA. It is my hope that it is not the future of the entire Union. It is not a good thing and does not work

Dr B

Steve - July 12, 2013

Jo Johnson is right on target. What is our responsible alternative? The U.S.A. cannot continue to spend the dollars on h/c at the current rate. We need an answer beyond simply ‘repeal it’!

Bill Hess - July 12, 2013

Absolutely! Obamacare must be defunded and REPEALED. Failure to do so will condemn this country to socialism. The present strategy to invite candidates to provide fraudulent information in support of higher subsidies for individual insurance is an unconstitutional violation of the Obamacare law itself. Where is the outrage? Someone in position of power must protest these actions! That includes Organizing for America.

Christine Hohreiter - July 12, 2013

DEFUND OBAMACARE AND OBAMA!!!

Donald Baker - July 12, 2013

How can it not be defunded. Republicans get your heads out of the sand! You may soon be looking for a real job!

Kelly Paul - July 12, 2013

Obamacare is a COMPLETE disaster. Every aspect of it should be repealed and dismantled as soon as possible. If Congress can’t repeal it, then the legislature should defund it!!!

Michael Rockwell - July 12, 2013

This crowd is a real crowd pleased. Or something.

R. K. Smith - July 12, 2013

I wonder how long before congress wakes up an realizes they have the power to put him out of office, can anyone explain that to me?

DeeDee - July 12, 2013

YES – defund it, destroy it, kill it – do whatever it takes to get rid of this disaster forever.

Charles Grimes - July 12, 2013

Yes defund and repeal Obamacare now !!!!
Also defund the U.N. and toss this anti-American group out of the U.S.A..

Donald Harris - July 12, 2013

Repeal Obamacare and impeach Obama!! I’ve had enough of the lies and corruption. I fear for the future is our country!!

Steven - July 12, 2013

Defund it.

Helen Kaufman - July 12, 2013

Yes, I agree that Obamacare should be defunded and repealed as soon as possible. We need to stop our tax dollars being wasted to promote it. No one wants it except the ones who want to destroy America
.

Ron Darby - July 12, 2013

Defund or repeal.
This is a travesty of major proportions.
I am fearful for the survival of this once great country.
My children and grandchildren are the ones that will surely suffer.

Patricia Ancowitz - July 13, 2013

The affordable care act is not affordable and there will be little care. This will be an access nightmare. Repeal it!

Rodney Huff - July 13, 2013

The problem is not obamacare nor it’s defunding. It’s getting the speaker off his butt to listen to the people instead of the party powerbrokers. Until we have politicians that listen to the people again, this is the crap we will have handed to us, in spades. Freedom in America has been traded in for tyranny by the very people we elected to protect our country. We get the government we deserve.

Lt Col Courtland Braden - July 13, 2013

Obama Care is a law that should be repealed. I believe we need to revamp our medical programs, but let our legislature and senate read before implementing. This administration tends to react on their agenda without proper investigation. Certainly it will take a while. The Administration jumps at this and stumbles or takes no action on international issues that affect our Nation. Obama Care needs an entire chapter on Nancy Pelosi!

Randy Williams - July 13, 2013

I agree, refund and repeal Obamacare. While we are at it, lets Impeach him.

Pat - July 13, 2013

The first 1000 pages was posted online at thomas.gov months before it was voted on, anyone who read it, knew it was a garbage bill and should be tossed out. Unfortunately, none of our elected reps bothered to read it or they would have known that they would have one heck of a problem selling it to the public once the details leaked out. A business news program said that Obamacare was never designed as healthcare, it was designed to destroy American businesses and put more people on government aid (keeps the Dem voting base big enough to overpower the Republicans). From that standpoint, it is succeeding very well.

David Wheeler - July 13, 2013

Yes i do agree Obamacare should be defunded

Kevin - July 13, 2013

This is just another in the disgusting list of unConstitutional moves this bunch of criminals have done.

dewayne - July 13, 2013

it must be defunded now…..there is no more money..
the irs should be defunded also..
why isn’t congress talking about this

Helen - July 13, 2013

Obama and cronies have so damaged our country. Obamacare is an outrage and must be repealed. Already his policies have severely affected our family.

BL - July 13, 2013

Not only should Obamacare be defunded, we should defund OBAMA!

Lillian - July 13, 2013

Defund and repeal now, before it’s too late!

ajs - July 13, 2013

Force NAIC to create nationalized insurance rules to increase competition across states. Require everyone to have insurance with no refusal for existing conditions. Refuse service for anyone w/o insurance. Increase the # of doctors and scope of nurse practioner’s ability to treat patients. Limit malpractice damages to 5mm (NPV of average hourly wages annuity at 10%). Net result is no free riders, lower insurance costs, increased healthcare supply, lower healthcare costs and no taxpayer money.

Helen Polyachyk - July 13, 2013

Get rid of it and Obama too ,it was a terrible mistake to put Obama back in office anything he does stinks to high heaven

Ruthann Ruecroft - July 13, 2013

The fact that it was ever implemented in the first place shows how far this country has fallen away from the once great free Republic it once was. That our leaders could even entertain the thought that socialized medicine is better than free market medical care means far too many of our citizens believe it’s government’s job to take care of us. What’s ironic is I remember people complaining about their doctor’s fees….wait until they get the government’s bill.

freddie lesan - July 13, 2013

defund/repeal! it stinks!

Patsy Shelnutt - July 13, 2013

It appears all our Congressmen are only interested in keeping their jobs. How could anyone with any sense allow our tax dollars to pay for advertising. That is as bad as the Post Office advertising the Olympics.

Gin - July 13, 2013

Defund then repeal Obama “Scare.” What a nightmare.

Dan - July 13, 2013

Untill our side works in to the pop culture world like the other side does .We are just talking to ourselves and reaffirming what we already know

Tom Snyder - July 13, 2013

Get the Federal Gov’t out of 1/6 of our economy! Quality of care and control of cost will only occur in the private, competitive economy that has made our country great (until Obama started transforming it with his liberal income distribution schemes).

Nancy - July 13, 2013

YES! If it can’t be repealed right now, it could at least be defunded until it can be repealed. The House needs to stand strong against this outrageous trampling of our rights and the waste and fraud involved in the expenditure of our tax money.

Larry Chadwick - July 13, 2013

America could become a free nation again, if we could get rid of the socialist president Obama and his cronies.

JackL.Walters - July 13, 2013

We had the best medical care in the world, why did we need a change, the poor always had access to medical care. So what have accomplished.

Shelley Ernest - July 13, 2013

I am so sick of hearing government ads on conservative talk show radio stations. I agree with Don regarding defunding Obamacare AND Obama. He’s working hard to create a banana republic with him as dictator and change the U.S. into a nanny state. If he like communism, fascism and socialism so much, why doesn’t he just leave and live somewhere where any of those situations already exist.

Kevin E - July 13, 2013

Hussein and all his minions should be escorted out of the White House and sent on their way. Anywhere. Next is to remove all the special ‘privileges’ attached to politicians. The privilege is representing the People and our Country. And terms have to be limited.
And this has to be always – One Nation Under God.

Leslie - July 13, 2013

The purse strings are controlled by the house. The Speaker needs to grow a pair and refuse to fund this disgusting excuse for a law. Instead of complaining about it and letting it bankrupt this country, the House has to stand up for what’s right!

Keith A Brown - July 13, 2013

It is not able to provide as delivered, scrap the mess and get change that is viable and sustainable!!

Denise - July 13, 2013

Get rid of it and while we are at it get rid of Obama!!

Joan Shaw - July 13, 2013

I have been against it from the beginning and even dropped membership in AMA and AARP because they backed it. We have been betrayed.

Mike Aman - July 13, 2013

Get rid of both

Max Harshman - July 13, 2013

Repeal. Then impeach and inprison.

George Hill - July 13, 2013

Obama knows how to appeal to the base elements in a person or society. Its called bate and switch: “you can have universal healthcare; but, wait until the elections are done.”

Suzanne Miller - July 13, 2013

Obamacare should have NEVER became law. I am just sick with all the regulations and kick backs that this law represents. It definitely shows that we do not have any representation in our gov’t. Some think that this is the way but wait, the truth is coming out! Hopefully our thoughts will prevail and our nation as well.

Peggy Ashcraft - July 13, 2013

It should be defunded and repealed as soon as possible.

JZ - July 13, 2013

How can you trust anything Obama says or does? Obamacare is only one thing of many that has destroyed the trust the legal residents of this country once had. Obama has declared himself “King” and won’t settle just to be POTUS just by declaring which laws he will enforce and which laws he won’t. I say definitely repeal and defund Obamacare.

Dale - July 13, 2013

Obama and the Democrats are enemies of this country. We need to defund and repeal Health Care, and get these people out of office. We also need to get rid of a lot of Republicans in Congress, who don’t listen to the people. That includes the leader of the House.

Elizabeth Schultze - July 13, 2013

Get rid of Obama and his Obamacare!!!

Louis Phelps - July 13, 2013

How any intellectually honest person can support Obamacare in any form is beyond me. Where’s good ol’ common sense when you need it?

Harriet Nicholson - July 13, 2013

Defund Ocare and EPA, IRS totally, YESTERDAY!!!

Henry Schreiber - July 13, 2013

Obamacare should be repealed in its entirety.

Marjorie Taylor - July 13, 2013

Absolutely it should be defunded and repealed.

Fran - July 13, 2013

ABSOLUTELY!!!

Brenda Manheim - July 13, 2013

I do not want my tax dollars going to advertising the Obamacare nor do we need Obamacare. Mr. Obama needs to lead this nation as we are praying for him as our President. I do not believe he even knows what this plan entails.

Mary Ann Angle - July 13, 2013

Obamacare should be defunded and defeated. A new simple refined law should be written.

James L. Owens - July 13, 2013

Absolutely defund the worst plan one could devise.

alan winters - July 13, 2013

just like a despotic autocracy

ROBERT FLOURNOY - July 13, 2013

Do not fund obamacare.It is a big loser for everyone.It is to have total control of everyone.

kathy - July 13, 2013

Obama care should be repealed we don’t need the government in our health care!

kathy means - July 13, 2013

we don’t need the government in our health care! Repeal

Don Cheney - July 13, 2013

Quite obviously this thing called Obamacare is so complicated, so completely impossible to understand that the entire thing must be repealed. Unlike some laws, this one cannot be segmented and fixed one part at a time. Come on Congress – do the right thing for the people for a change – kill this mess before it kills US.

marie colombo - July 13, 2013

Why can’t every state see that this is not going to work
period. How dumb are they in Washington to see too that this is not going to work. And why are they not having to take this bitter pill that we have to take. I just don’t understand why Congress just doesn’t through this out.

Joan Coleman - July 13, 2013

Absolutely it should be DEFUNDED ! ! ! ! !
And so should he (Obama) !

Babbie Migl - July 13, 2013

Obamacare should be defunded and repealed. Barack Husein Obama, along with his cohorts Joe Biden Eric Holder, etc, should all be thrown into PRISON for TYRANNY because they are ENEMIES of our COUNTRY and have violated all of our laws and all of our sacred documents which provide freedom and faith to millions of Americans. When are we going to face the fact that our country is being led by a COMMUNIST DICTATOR?

susan miller - July 13, 2013

Obamacare and Obama should be repealed

Marsha Jarboe - July 13, 2013

Defund and repeal Obamacare as soon as possible! It will change the country we love if it is allowed to become implemented fully!

Judy - July 13, 2013

Defund if repealing won’t work for now. Citizens and legal residents who need health care and don’t have it can be provided care on a sliding scale – not free unless they fall into the category of needing “welfare” assistance. Anybody who does not want to obtain insurance need to take the responsibility of paying for care if they have a need for it.

Joseph Mathewson - July 13, 2013

ObamaCare is a joke and a complete waste of money and resources. It will destroy the best Healthcare in the world that we now have. It will cost more and serve less people and it is a complete LIE perpetrated by Obama and the Democrats. The people who voted for this train wreck of a bill should be ran out of office….get rid of these hypocrites and traitors.

Frank Kendall - July 13, 2013

Defund it !!! Repeal it !!! Impeach Obama!!!

Kevin Hicken - July 13, 2013

How did it happen? We have a Communist (RUINING) presiding over AMERICA!!

Lawrence S. Lasecki - July 13, 2013

Please get rid of it (repeal/defund) this thing soon.

Carol Andrews - July 13, 2013

Yes it should be de funded. If it’s so great why doesn’t the government use it!!! Also there should be term limits for all of elected officials. Also no lifetime perks either. Just think of all the money that would be saved.

Phil McConathy - July 13, 2013

TOTAL DEFUNDING and REPEAL of Obamacare NOW!

Craig - July 13, 2013

Since 2008, I have felt like I am being dragged along into deeper debt and I have literally no say in the matter. I am really tired of this! I thought our system of government protected the rights of minorities such as me who do not want to spend more than the government takes in?

Steven Johns - July 13, 2013

Obama-care is too much of an over-reaching government expansion, in the form of administration state policies, that have continued to develop a life of their own, in complicated ways, that no one that voted for the thing would have even anticipated. An essential part of growing up, even for Liberals, is being able to admit that you were simply wrong! This gigantic flawed Health Care/ IRS expansion needs to repealed, but to do that you must take down and Impeach Obama on Benghazi and other Constitutional and Judicial offenses as an essential first step in order to demonstrate leadership that people can trust get behind. A tyrant does not respect The Rule of Law, so you will not get the unprincipled career-centered individuals in power, to feel safe enough to go against Obama’s policies, until he is removed from power first, as a symbol that the Constitution, And The Rule of Law are back in force to protect them from retaliation.

Barron Schlameus - July 14, 2013

It’s wrong, anti-American and unconstitutional!!!!!!!!!!!

Jon - July 14, 2013

Why is there no legal actions being take to stop the President and Holter from ignoring federal laws, the immigration law and implementation of the Afordable Health Care law, the voting public needs to see the economic effect of these policies and laws to make a proper judgement in the next election. What are you doing?

Jen - July 14, 2013

Absolutely! It’s destroying the best medical system in the world. There is not enough money in the world to fund this monstrosity. More & more people are beginning to see their insurance premiums go through the roof, as opposed to going down. It won’t be long until this thing implodes on itself. Completely unsustainable….needs to be repealed. If we can’t do that, then defund it ASAP.

Robert Wedge - July 14, 2013

Obamacare was never about health care. It was always about furthering the progressive agenda by enlarging government dependency. This translates into a vote buying scheme.Ronald Reagan warned us of this Trojan horse plan using healthcare to transition us to socialism/marxism in a speech from 1961.
Yes this needs to be dismantled!

Connie Brady - July 14, 2013

DEFUND AND GET RID OF OBAMACARE. Stop the ridiculous spending in all government. It is time for American people to wake up, wise up and teach the younger generation about this once great nation. The two faced so called conservatives need to grow a backbone, standup for our God given rights. All will stand before our Creator and be held accountable
.

William Zuber - July 14, 2013

We should repeal Obama for incompetence in office, and the ACA for unconstitutionally having the government force citizens to by health protection !!

richard soley - July 14, 2013

Yes, we need to defund, repealed and replaced with a free market program.

Loretta Weaver - July 14, 2013

YES – DEFINITELY YES!!!!

Pamela Wiegel - July 14, 2013

Repeal ObamaCare. It’s not improved healthcare or healthcare access. It’s a delusional & ill-thought out plan for anything of value. Also fire Mr. Obama for his poor performance, & increasingly poor performance. Power has corrupted & this country needs a change from this person’s lack of being an American & leader.

D. L. Hull - July 14, 2013

In my opinion, Obamacare should be repealed. If that is not possible, then it should be defunded.

Thomas Golab - July 14, 2013

The healthcare “law” stated that it was to take effect Jan. 1 2014. But since it is unpopular and there is an election in 2014 Obama just DECREED that it should take effect Jan 1, 2015. How can Obama change the law without a say from Congress. He is not a Dictator! Or is he? !!

Larry Sparks - July 14, 2013

There should be law against the Federal government spending tax payers dollars to advertise for or against any law. This is why we have Senators & Representatives to fire or rehire based on their actions in Congress.

A. G. Anderson - July 14, 2013

Obamacare should be defunded and repealed

Gary Martin - July 14, 2013

The road to Obamacare is paved with limited health care for those who need it most!

tom shupe - July 14, 2013

i read a piece today in the local newspaper written by a reporter in British paper saying he wondered why the U.S. wanted spoil a good health care with a nal. health plan he knows from experince will not work. i agree repeal as soon as posable NOW!!!

Mary - July 14, 2013

It’s things like this that keep me up worrying at night. The covert behavior of our present Administration is appalling. Obamacare was poorly devised and will only hurt people. The Insurance companies can still charge high premiums and deny payment for services.

Linda M Smith - July 15, 2013

Repeal/Defund Obamacare.

FN Ted Barker - July 15, 2013

Repeal is the only action for this Power Grab: Defund is simply stop gap.

Dee Dee Gould - July 15, 2013

Taxpayer revenue should not be used to promote government advertising of socialized medicine! That is another example of blatant waste of taxpayer dollars. Too bad the conservatives’ message can’t be advertised on lattes and portable toilets so Americans will know the negative effects the ACA will have on the nation. Many Americans, however, are unconcerned about the cost of Obamacare because they have grown accustomed to having their hand out. Tighten up your belts, employers and hard-working Americans, because your disposable income is about to take another significant hit.

William Siems - July 15, 2013

Initially, force admin delay of the individual mandate. Then defund Obamacare , at least key parts of it.
Then introduce legislation to correct 1 or 2 parts; ie, existing conditions care, no more “Jason” being covered on Mom & Dad’s insurance until age 26, etc. Introduce something that makes sense to the public.

Wilbert C. Stroming - July 15, 2013

I agree with Heritage experts that Obamacare should be defunded, and repealed! Get government control out of the health industry, and return to a free market competi-tive private industry insurance system which will provide choice to the public for suitable health care service.

Paul Wilson - July 15, 2013

Defund it, repeal it, stop it any way possible!

Lorraine Root - July 15, 2013

It should be defunded and repealed, and our taxes should not be used on ads for Obamacare. If it is so great, why do they have to advertise it?

David Benninghoff - July 15, 2013

Obama is dangerous to this country. Do everything in your power to block any and all of his actions.

Garvis E. McElroy - July 16, 2013

Contact your Senators/Rep.and demand repeal&defund Obamacare

Debbie – July 16, 2013 - July 16, 2013

Defund ObamaCare – Repeal ObamaCare.
Once again our President will do anything to
get his way — the people have spoken since 2010 and
I do not know anyone who supports ObamaCare. He
loves to waste our money!

Judith Reed - July 17, 2013

If the current Administration’s ridiculous spending habits weren’t ruining our country and harming so many, maybe the whole shebang could be considered just a horribly bad joke — but the harm is reprehensible.

Mary - July 17, 2013

Defund/Repeal Obamacare – it is unconstitutional & it is destroying the greatest healthcare system & the greatest Country God gave the world. God help us all!!!

Cindy Olsen - July 22, 2013

Obamacare is the worst piece of legislation that has been passed. It began with the idiot Nancy Pelosi telling everyone they needed to pass it to find out what was in it! What a bunch of knuckleheads we have running the country!

Gary Morris - July 25, 2013

I can’t think of much proposed by this president that shouldn’t be repealed, defunded, disavowed or ignored. Never has such a person and his followers and supporters done so much damage to our country, never!

Ed Thore - September 14, 2013

Nearly everyone who has taken the opportunity to closely scrutinize the impact of Obamacare, now INCLUDING BIG LABOR, has come out against it. I suppose that it is unfortunate that Congress is not covered by (subject to) Obamacare. Where is the 29th Amendment when you need it?
Bravo to Mark Koch!!!
