A Republican Controlled House Would De-Fund ObamaCare

The more I learn about Congressman Tom Price the more I like him. Price looks to be sticking to his principles on defending the unborn and this will be extremely important if the Republicans take back the House in November and hopefully even the Senate. From Lifenews:
"A top Republican congressman has repeated a pledge that has become a rallying cry of sorts for the party during the midterm Congressional election battles. With a majority of Americans opposing the pro-abortion government-run health care plan, GOP lawmakers are promising to try to de-fund the law if they win control of the House or Senate.

Rep. Tom Price of Georgia, the head of the Republican Study Committee in the House, repeated the pledge over the weekend in a speech at the pro-life Faith and Freedom Coalition in Washington.

In March, House Minority Leader John Boehner promised Republicans would attempt to revoke the funding behind the health care program, which includes massive abortion funding that pro-life groups already had to stop in three states.

Sen. John McCain and other lawmakers and candidates have sounded the drumbeat of revoking funding as well -- calling it a strategy that could be used in case the lawsuits filed against the plan aren't successful or if a repeal bill can't be approved.

Price accused Democrats of being “possessed” with passing and promoting the pro-abortion health care plan, he said at the event, according to Politico.

“They were so possessed -- so possessed -- with passing this signature piece of legislation,” he said.

“You know, the President came to the Capitol. He said ‘Don't worry about what’s in the bill, it’s time for us to make history.' Well, we're going to make some history on Nov. 2, ladies and gentlemen,” he said.

Price's comments come as a new poll released today shows a majority of voters continue to support repealing the pro-abortion health care program.

Fifty-three percent of voters now say they at least somewhat favor repeal of the new national health care law with 42 percent strongly supporting repeal, a Rasmussen Reports survey shows. Just 38% of Likely Voters oppose repeal and only 30 percent are strongly opposed..."
Pence has also stated that he wants to stop funding the eugenics organization known as Planned Parenthood. We can only hope.
