GOP leaders and many other Republicans voted for ObamaCare in joining Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats to defeat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX); an attempt to restore our Health Care and our fragile economy.  Americans want jobs.  ObamaCare is choking our economy.  Businesses are having a difficult time by adding ObamaCare to their cost and competing in a world economy.  Many of our manufacturing jobs have left the USA for friendlier nations.


Most Americans expected Harry Reid’s Senate Majority Democrats to, again, shove an unwanted, unwanted, and unneeded edition of ObamaCare crammed down our throats; however, no one ever expected so many Republicans to weaken in support of such a collapsing national economy damaging piece of legislation as ObamaCare and strained us and now perceive a forced re-run on Americans’ who are coveting jobs, not additional economic failures.


52 Democrat, 25 Republicans, and 2 Independents voted for Senate ‘Cloture’ on September 27, 2013 in moving ObamaCare in the direction of passage; legislation Democrats rammed down Americans throats in December 2009


25 Senate Republicans voted for ‘Cloture’ with President Obama, Senator Harry Reid, and all other 52 voting Senate Democrats and 2 Independents in support of ObamaCare; the most ‘job-killing’ legislation ever in the USA.


25 Senate Republicans voting for ‘Cloture’ include: Alexander (R-TN), Ayotte (R-NH), Barrasso (R-WY), Blunt (R-MO), Boozman (R-AR), Burr (R-NC), Chambliss (R-GA), Chiesa (R-NJ), Coats (R-IN), Coburn (R-OK), Cochran (R-MS), Collins (R-ME), Corker (R-TN), Cornyn (R-TX), Graham (R-SC), Hoeven (R-ND), Isakson (R-GA), Johanns (R-NE), Johnson (R-WI), Kirk (R-IL), McCain (R-AZ), McConnell (R-KY), Murkowski (R-AK), Thune (R-SD), Wicker (R-MS).


All 52 Senate Democrats and 2 Independents voted for ‘Cloture’ with President Obama, Senator Harry Reid, and all other voting Democrats and 2 Independents in support of ObamaCare; the most ‘job-killing’ legislation ever in the USA.


14 Republican offices up for re-election in 2014: Alexander, Lamar (R - TN), Chambliss, Saxby (R - GA), Chiesa, Jeff (R - NJ), Cochran, Thad (R - MS), Collins, Susan M. (R - ME), Cornyn, John (R - TX), Enzi, Michael B. (R - WY), Graham, Lindsey (R - SC), Inhofe, James M. (R - OK), Johanns, Mike (R - NE), McConnell, Mitch (R - KY), Risch, James E. (R - ID), Roberts, Pat (R - KS), Sessions, Jeff (R - AL).


18 Democrat offices up for re-election in 2014: Baucus, Max (D - MT), Begich, Mark (D - AK), Coons, Christopher A.(D - DE), Durbin, Richard J. (D - IL), Franken, Al (D - MN), Hagan, Kay R. (D - NC), Harkin, Tom (D - IA), Johnson, Tim (D - SD), Landrieu, Mary L. (D - LA), Levin, Carl (D - MI), Markey, Edward J. (D - MA), Merkley, Jeff (D - OR), Pryor, Mark L. (D - AR), Reed, Jack (D - RI), Rockefeller, John D., IV (D - WV), Shaheen, Jeanne (D - NH), Udall, Mark (D - CO), Udall, Tom (D - NM).


None of the 2 Independent offices are up for re-election in 2014.


How will these 79 US Senators justify their voting record on this issue.  How will the competing 18 Democrats and/or 14 Republicans defend their records for re-election(s)?


Most Americans and more than half of all small business now want ObamaCare to be repealed and/or defunded.  Even Labor Unions are calling to end ObamaCare.  Our US economy is in shambles; however, Capitol Hill GOP leaders led many Republicans to join in with President Obama, Sen. Harry Reid, and other Capitol Hill Democrats.  Did you ever believe so many Republicans could and/or would make such a left turn.  It is as if too many Capitol Hill legislators are drinking too much ‘Kool-Aid’ or consuming some other ‘mind bending’ substance(s).


Unfortunately, most Capitol Hill Democrat and Republican Party leaders have betrayed (y)our American businesses and their employees on ObamaCare.


Pennsylvania Avenue and many Democrat, Republican, and Independent Capitol Hill legislators are well overdue for replacements.  Watch their Senate challengers ascend in 2014!
