Obamacare is one of the most controversial topics.

Republican leaders want Republican lawmakers to use all tactics to defund Obamacare.

"Now is the single time to defund Obamacare," says Texas Senator,Ted Cruz.

October 1, 2013, is when the Affordable Health Care Act goes into effect, but some lawmakers are against it.

Texas Senator, Ted Cruz spoke in Dallas and New Hampshire last week. Cruz describes what our country 's workforce would be like, he says, Obamacare isn't working.

"Obamacare is the number one job killer in America," says Cruz.

On Sunday, on CNN's State of the Union, Senator Cruz says, the House of Representatives should not fund Obamacare or what Cruz calls 'The Killer Health Care Law'.

"We want to keep the government open, we have voted to keep the government open to fund the government... why is President Obama threatening to shut down the government down to force Obamacare down throats of the American people," says Cruz.

East Texans say, our country can't afford it.

"It's going to cost our country a lot of money that we can't afford it, it's going to cost a lot of people their job's, you still don't know what's on it, there's so much paperwork involved it's kind if like tax code no one is going to be able to understand it," Harold Collier, of Tyler, Cruz supporter.

KETK spoke to Grassroots America 'We the People'. Director JoAnn Fleming tells us, she supports Cruz all the way.

"The House needs to pass that bill that will fund everything in the government except Obamacare," says Fleming.

CNN reports, there aren't enough Republican votes to make Cruz's mission a reality.

41 Senators or 218 Representatives are needed to back his legislation.

"The House writes the rules on funding the government so the House can undo any of the rules that's already done," says Fleming.

She says, this is a disaster for the economy.

NOW is the time to defeat ted cruz...he needs to move and reclaim either his Canadian citizenship or go to the land of his father, Cuba...America does not need disgusting, dishonorable or dangerous tea swilling clowns doing the business of the American people. But...with cruz slathering mindless clones into a lather with his idiotic blather, a Democratic candidate will sail through smooth waters right straight into the White House in 2016...and the Affordable Healthcare Act is the LAW, stupid!!

Why the Far Right is Wrong in its Principled Rigidity

You get the Government you deserve. Throughout the Bible, even from the very beginning with the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden, God chose to act in defiance of his principles in not electing to impute immediate death upon Adam and Eve. Even before this, with the fall of the angel Lucifer God elected to act in defiance of his principles in not immediately striking Lucifer out of existence.

You see, God in his infinite wisdom created f

While I'm not a fan of Obama care, I think I may despise JoAnn Fleming even more.

A moment of clairity, tonks...wonderful! Even looking at fleming is tough...with a big mouth, radical right-of-right tea sipper rhetoric, she is the epitome of a shrewish, hate-filled woman who enjoys leading mindless drones who also enjoy getting on the hate train to bash almost everything good and progressive in the US. Pity those who listen to this woman, cruz, gomer, Boehner, McConnell, and all the junk they are trying to peddle. Discerning between truth and lies is needed now!!
