Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) appeared on Fox News recently to discuss the looming price hikes for Americans trapped in Obama’s socialist health care insurance plan. Premiums and deductibles are skyrocketing — adding as much as $4,000 and more to each policy. Obama promised that his plan would reduce costs by $2,500 for a family.

“Obamacare has been a disaster for Missourians, and it’s about to get even worse,” Blunt said. “Premiums are set to increase by double digits in some areas, deductibles are sky high, and the vast majority of our state could have only one Obamacare exchange option next year. If families can’t afford that option and are forced to go without insurance, they’ll face up to a $2,085 penalty under the law.”
House Republicans believe that the Weldon Amendment, and all federal laws, must be enforced. HHS’s false interpretation and refusal to enforce federal law forces the House to explore all legislative options to protect the rights of health care providers in California and across our country who do not wish to participate in a practice that takes the lives of unborn children.
Military chaplains often tell me they are concerned that acting consistent with the tenets of their faith – which is the very nature of their position – could mean losing their job.

The Supreme Court order instructs the Obama administration to do what it should have done in the first place: give due respect to the sincere beliefs of the Little Sisters of the Poor and other people of faith.
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan on Tuesday offered a full-throated defense of nuns who will challenge Obamacare’s birth control rules before the Supreme Court this week, saying there is “no good reason” to force people who embody public service to violate their faith.
“Some six million households across the country have lost the health plans that they liked, or lost their doctors, even though President Obama promised 37 times that this would not happen.”
Sen. Lankford has stated that this brief “articulates the great concern that many Americans have about our First Amendment right of the free exercise of religion. The case exposes the Obama administration’s focus on freedom of worship as our primary religious right, instead of our freedom of religion, which includes our everyday lives.”
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan has invited a group of nuns fighting Obamacare’s “contraception mandate” to be among his honored guests Tuesday at President Obama’s final State of the Union address to Congress. Sisters Loraine Marie Maguire and Constance Veit will represent the Little Sisters of the Poor, a nonprofit that provides care for the elderly.
Religious freedom is a fundamental human right that is essential to a free society,” said Forbes. “The federal government should never be able to dictate to the Little Sisters, or any other religious non-profit organization, what their faith does or does not require. These organizations must remain free to support and engage in their communities as they always have— without the government forcing them to violate the very faith that motivates their selfless service.
