    He;s like a playground bully -- on steroids!

    According to a recent poll, only 23% of the American people want Congress to pass the anti-gun ObamaCare bill.

    And the President's response to this? He believes Americans are just too stupid to understand what geniuses like him, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid are trying to do for us.

    So what is Obama's current plan?

    Cheat.

    ObamaCare is already the product of fraud, secrecy, bribery, and corruption. But Obama is preparing to ratchet up this corruption to a whole new level.

    In 1974, Congress created a special process for balancing the budget. Senators could reduce the deficit with a simple 51 votes in the Senate, rather than getting the 60 needed votes to stop a filibuster. Under the rules, this process -- called "reconciliation" -- can ONLY be used for balancing the budget.

    To repeat, it cannot be used for anything other than reducing the deficit. By contrast, ObamaCare would INCREASE the deficit by at least $500 BILLION.

    So what does Obama do (with the help of crooked accountants at the Congressional Budget Office)?

    He lies.

    He fraudulently pretends the anti-gun ObamaCare legislation would reduce the deficit. And he does this by hiding costs and pretending he's going to make cuts he never intends to fully implement ($465 billion in Medicare cuts).

    And he intends to use this fraud scheme to cram ObamaCare down the throats of the American people against their will.

    Americans don't want the increased taxes and gun control that have been injected into the bill. Remember, Majority Leader Harry Reid tried to claim his legislation fixed the problems that Gun Owners of America had with this legislation.

    But in reality, the bill still allows the ATF to troll a health/gun database in order to take away firearms from tens of millions of Americans.

    ACTION: Please contact your two senators and your representative. Tell them that using the budget-balancing "reconciliation" process to pass ObamaCare is nothing but cheating.

    Dear

    ObamaCare is already the product of fraud, secrecy, bribery, and corruption. But Obama is preparing to ratchet up this corruption to a whole new level.

    In 1974, Congress created a special process for balancing the budget -- with a simple 51 votes in the Senate, rather than the 60 needed to stop a filibuster. Under the rules, this process -- called "reconciliation" -- can ONLY be used for reducing the deficit.

    To repeat, it cannot be used for anything other than reducing the deficit. By contrast, ObamaCare would INCREASE the deficit by at least $500 BILLION.

    So what does Obama do (with the help of crooked congressional accountants at the Congressional Budget Office)? He lies. He fraudulently pretends ObamaCare would reduce the deficit. And he does this by hiding costs (the $247 billion "doc fix") and pretending he's going to make cuts he never intends to fully implement ($465 billion in Medicare cuts).

    This "reconciliation" scheme is nothing more than a fraud on the American people, who, according to every recent poll, oppose ObamaCare by overwhelming majorities.

    Understand this: I strongly object to this "cheat scheme."

    Majority Leader Harry Reid has tried to claim his legislation fixed the anti-gun problems in ObamaCare. But in reality, it will still allow the ATF to troll a health/gun database in order to take away firearms from tens of millions of Americans.

    Please oppose the use of "reconciliation" to pass ObamaCare.
