A pro-liberty organization is shedding light on what it calls the “biggest myths” of ObamaCare.
Myth one is that Congress can’t defund it.
According to Heritage Action's Dan Holler, Congress can attach language to a spending bill that states no more money will be spent on ObamaCare.
“And that effectively will defund the entitlements, the discretionary spending, the enforcement and the implementation,” Holler tells OneNewsNow.
Meanwhile, Holler says myth number two is that ObamaCare opponents are trying to shut down the government. The only people talking about shutting down the federal government are President Obama and some Republicans such Sen. Tom Coburn, he says.
“What the proponents of the defunding strategy are saying is, Hey, we will pass a bill to keep the government up and running, so long as it doesn't contain money for ObamaCare. That's a sacrifice for conservatives, because there is a bunch of policies that will get funded that we don't necessarily agree with."
