How Do You Get Your News?

If you are the average American, you read 1½ newspapers every day and watch 4 hours of television.  If you commute to work, you listen to 2 hours of radio each day.  In short what you don’t need is one more source of information coming into your life each day.  That fact makes it even harder for me to make my pitch today. 

The technical age has allowed us to publish the information that we feel can help you on a relatively easy basis.  You get our email flyers every week promoting a product or service that we offer. We appreciate you allowing us onto your computer screen each week to make our pitch asking for your business. 

Today, I am asking you to subscribe to “The Daily.”  This electronic newspaper brings not only our news but the news of our industry and our nation to you in an easy to read format.  The layout of the newsletter allows you to scan and read the articles that interest you and discard the rest.  It is an efficient message delivery system.   Please take a moment to subscribe to our newsletter.  We have made that easy too.  Just click on the button below, go to the right side of the page and ‘subscribe.’  When you have your subscription – you can join the growing group of well-informed people already there. 

  We always appreciate your business and we appreciate you allowing us onto your computer screen in yet another way.

Thank you!

Supreme Court Upholds ObamaCare

The Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the Constitutionality of ObamaCare sets a disturbing and dangerous precedent. Their ruling in effect confirms that there are no limitations whatsoever on the powers of Congress.

To use the now-famous example from the oral arguments in this case, if Congress wished to mandate that everyone buy and eat broccoli, the Court has essentially ruled today that they have such a power.
Just as dangerously, ObamaCare takes control of people’s health care decisions out of the hands of doctors and patients and puts them instead into the hands of unaccountable government bureaucrats. By making doctors answerable ultimately to the government and not to their patients, this threatens to corrupt the very foundation of medical ethics.
It is clear that, irrespective of the intentions of those who passed this law, the Act will impair access, increase costs, reduce choice, cripple innovation, and diminish quality of care.

In the wake of this disappointing decision from the Supreme Court, Independent Women’s Voice will continue our efforts to see to it that this deeply unpopular and perilous government take-over of private health care decisions is fully and completely repealed.

It is important to note that the Court’s ruling today isn’t the end of the challenges to this law. In fact, it’s just one of the many Constitutional challenges to ObamaCare, including cases regarding privacy, the conscience exemption, and freedom of contract. And, there’s also the issue of the IRS now taxing employers without Congressional authorization and absent any statutory authority to do so.

The Court’s decision today also reaffirms the importance of The ObamaCare Repeal Pledge.

With ObamaCare having been upheld by the court, it is now even more necessary and important for any and all candidates seeking elected office and all incumbents currently holding office to sign the Pledge and demonstrate to the American people that they are serious about repeal of ObamaCare and willing to be held accountable for taking the necessary steps to ensure full repeal.
