Sen. Ted Cruz shocked the establishment in Washington, D.C. by standing up on the Senate floor and declaring, “I rise in opposition to Obamacare.” The historic filibuster of Obamacare that we have all been hoping and praying for has begun. Sen. Cruz has vowed to speak until he can no longer stand.
After weeks of pressure from Pray For US followers and like-minded patriotic Americans, the House of Representatives passed the Continuing Resolution to fund the government in the months ahead – but it was a CR with all funding for Obamacare stripped out of it. That measure passed overwhelmingly in the House, 230-189, with several Democrats even voting in favor of defunding Obamacare.
Now Ted Cruz has stepped forward to do the heavy lifting in the Senate. This filibuster is obviously reminiscent of Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) filibuster of Obama’s program of assassinating American citizens on U.S. soil via drone strikes, which took place earlier this year.
Several Senators have risen to help give Cruz a break from speaking, including Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). However, if Cruz is going to be able to continue filibustering the funding for Obamacare, more Senators will need to join this effort.
Pray For US has set up a special page where you can send FaxGrams to the Senate immediately and tell them to join the filibuster of Obamacare. To send your faxes right now, please click HERE.
Untold thousands of Americans have lost their jobs due to Obamacare. Many more have seen their jobs cut back to 29 work hours per week, because of Obamacare. Three weeks ago the mainstream media was trumpeting the “fact” that it was “impossible” to get Obamacare defunded in the CR in the House. But Pray For US followers and others put relentless pressure on the House and Speaker John Boehner and his followers defunded Obamacare – overwhelmingly!
Now the media is saying that Cruz’ effort in the Senate is “doomed.” Sen. Cruz is changing hearts and minds and the pressure that Americans are bringing to bear on the Senate right now are having an effect on the Senate as well. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has stated that he is now on board with the plan to defund Obamacare, even though he had opposed the idea previously.
Sen. Ted Cruz is standing up for the rights of all Americans and for the future of our great country. Please pray for him at this time, as we are commanded to pray for those in authority in 1 Timothy 2:1-2. “I exhort, therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and honesty.”
In addition to your prayers, there are additional ways that you can take action to assist Sen. Cruz. Click HERE to send your faxes immediately and tell the Senators to join in the filibuster of Obamacare.
Another way that Americans can assist with this effort is by calling their Senators directly. The number to the Senate switchboard is 202-224-3121.
Pray For US has been opposed to Obamacare from its inception. This law will increase the number of abortions in America by forcing Christians to subsidize this murderous practice. It will contribute to European-style euthanasia in America through the establishment of the IRS-run Obamacare death panels. Obamacare will also unionize America’s doctors, nurses and hospital staffs, creating another massive federal labor union that funnels money directly to the Democrat party (imagine going to your hospital for emergency care and finding that your doctor is on strike; those days are coming if Obamacare is implemented).
We salute Sen. Cruz’ effort to filibuster the Obamacare funding and he is in our prayers. We hope that all of our readers will support his efforts as well. Send your faxes to the Senate today and tell them to stand up with Ted Cruz and filibuster Obamacare!
