“ACTIVATE A GRASSROOTS ARMY TO DEFUND OBAMACARE”

Hi, I’m Ted Cruz and this is the Freedom Minute.

Last week, we marked the one-year anniversary of my winning the Texas Republican primary for U.S. Senate.

That victory was made possible because thousands upon thousands of grassroots activists across the state saw that the country was in trouble and stepped forward to help fix it.

Today I work for 26 million Texans, and your support is why I’m serving in office helping lead the fight to protect the Second Amendment, to secure the border, and to unshackle the free market economy.

Now we need to activate another grassroots army — this time on a national scale.

In September, Congress will have the opportunity to defund Obamacare — the disastrous health care law, which is killing jobs and hurting the health care system.

The only way we can win this debate is if the American people rise up and demand it. Please join us and let your representatives know where you stand.

I’m Ted Cruz and this is the Freedom Minute.

    Yes, a grassroots army is what we need. Just not the kind Ted is talking about. Our representatives ahve known how we feel about obamacarenot since they passed it so we could find out what was in it. They could not care less what we think about ANYthing. Why waste the effort? Stay home and prepare.

    • 57thunderbird

      lawngreen Sadly I agree with you.All my letters,phone calls and e-mails seem to fall on deaf ears.

    Ted Cruz is a man of great honor and integrity.
    He is busy trying to help us defund obamacare and we need to help him, help us.
    For starters: Hopefully everyone on this site has called the politicians and told them to defund obama care…

  • cabensg

    Here’s the Cruz/Lee petition. two days ago it was at 150,000 now it’s up to 204,000. If you scroll down from the petition it has a list of those Senators on board with defunding Obamacare and their phone numbers. 
    Pass it on for others to sign.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    I signed it and I’m glad to see my senator, Grassley on there. The thing I hate about these petitions is now I’ll have another “e-newsletter” to delete and another piece of junk mail to toss out when I get home.

  • ElizabethWizinsky

    I am on board! I pray that Senator Cruz will stand up and stay with his plan to defund nobummercare…I am sick and tired of the elected repubs backing down and not voting the will of the people that elected them…CROYNYN for one and so many others. Until we stick to our guns even though it may not pass  we must STICK TO OUR GUNS! (metaphorically of course) DEFUND NOBUMMER CARE

    Simply put, American Conservatives need a party that fully represents us and our Constitution.  We need a party hell bent on correcting AND OR REMOVING the progressive regulations and laws passed by progressives to disrupt the American dream and it’s core ideology’s of equality and liberty for all.  We Must have a unified party void of progressives and those who sympathize with them.  Our nation is clearly divided now.  So lets have the battle lines drawn on Ideology and see which of the two concepts gains the greatest respect and support. UNITE FOR AMERICA.  Men Like Mr. Cruz can lead such an effort and win many converts overnight.

    It must be recognized the GOP cannot win elections as it operates.  Therefore NOW is the time for a change while the GOP is lost and ineffective.  NOW is the time to draw the line in the sand and ask concerned citizens to make heart fely respectful choices.  NOW is the time for an aggressive discussion about ideology and the future of America. Now is the time to decide.  Now is the time to Unite For America.

    The two senators I have (GA) aren’t worth much to me.  One of them is leaving, and I’m glad for it because he doesn’t seem to want to fight for the Constitution, and he hasn’t had the guts to stand up to Dear Leader.
    The other one has a good conservative score, but constantly disappoints.  He had put his name to the list of those who would defund CommieCare, but he must have felt a tickle in his sack and decided to remove his name.
    The way I look at it – it’s now or never.  If this passes we are all but a communist country, and it will never be repealed unless there’s another revolution.
