‘Exempt America’ rally to confront Congress upon return to Washington

Exempt congress

Congress is set to return to Washington on Sept. 10, and when it does, a crowd will gather to welcome members back.

The Exempt America from Obamacare rally will begin at noon Tuesday on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, featuring numerous speakers, including Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rand Paul, R-Ky., according to its website.

During the August recess, Lee and Cruz, along with U.S. Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., Tom Graves, R-Ga., and others, waged a battle “to save America from the Obamacare ‘train wreck,’” the website said.

Exempt America lists serious concerns about Obamacare and the effect it will have on the American health care system. Problems it said have already been discovered include:

•  The administration has already admitted that Obamacare isn’t ready by unilaterally (and unlawfully) delaying the employer mandate for a year, effectively protecting Big Business.

•  Big Labor Unions who largely supported the law are seeking special exemptions because as Jimmy Hoffa, Jr., pointed out in a letter to Democratic Leaders, “[Obamacare will…] destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.”

•  Even Big Government is getting a carve out now that the Office of Personnel Management has outlined a way for the government to subsidize health care premiums for Members of Congress and their staffers.

The public is invited to the event, which is being presented by Tea Party Patriots, and numerous other organizations, including The Tea Party.net, FreedomWorks and Heritage Action for America.
