news bits from here and there our country it is increasingly clear has arrived at a pivotal moment ­ perhaps the pivotal moment ­ in its history together we face a choice between two futures one is a collectivist future where the federal government claims ever increasing shares of our income and grants itself the authority to make decisions affecting virtually every aspect of our daily lives the other future is built upon the idea that individual freedom trumps government authority and that in those rare cases when solving a problem requires government the government that governs best is the one that is smallest and closest to the people that is the future that we should seek ­ reaffirming our individual liberty strengthening private markets shrinking the size of governments and making decisions wherever possible at the local level rather than in washington no issue joins this debate more dramatically than the question of obamacare and what to do about it it s not just about health care the law redefines our centuries-old understanding of the reach of federal authority indeed whether there are any limits at all to the government s ability to intrude upon individuals families business owners physicians and other health providers and state and local governments little or nothing will be allowed outside the new regulatory scheme ­ no alternative state programs no individuals or businesses that choose not to participate no truly private market alternatives the debate boils down to one big question shall we govern ourselves or let unelected bureaucrats rule us behind this question are the many other specific ones about health care · should the federal government control america s $2.5 trillion health sector fully one sixth of our economy · should government bureaucrats decide what form of health coverage is acceptable · should these bureaucrats be given the legal authority to require all americans to purchase governmentdesigned health plans and levy penalties on those who don t comply · should the federal government require the states to devote scarce resources to the creation of federally one of the most important documents a man ever signs is his will i can tell better what a man had in his heart by reading his will than i can by reading his obituary his obituary tells the world what his friends thought of him his will reveals what he had in his heart a m vollmer for as a man thinketh in his heart so is he proverbs 23:7 out of the heart are the issues of life proverbs 4:23 a bequest in your will to the voice in the wilderness inc can assure that the outreach of this ministry at home and abroad will continue after you have gone to your eternal reward prayerfully consider us in your estate planning thank you is god s work in your will 4·the voice in the wilderness february 2011 virtual edition

designed health exchanges that state lawmakers may feel inadequately address the unique needs of state residents · should the federal government expand the medicaid program so dramatically that states face a hobson s choice ­ either shoulder billions in new fiscal commitments on top of an already unsustainable budget mess or withdraw from the program entirely · what about employers who want to continue to provide their employees with health coverage but learn that federal bureaucrats deem the coverage they can afford to provide insufficiently generous and these are but the most obvious concerns raised by last year s law but what comes next you ask first it is incumbent on the majority leader of the senate harry reid dnv to allow a vote on the floor of that chamber a bipartisan majority in one half of congress has just repealed the most ambitious expansion of the federal government in many decades following a major electoral reversal for his party for mr reid to prevent this vote from coming to the senate floor would be to thumb his nose at the will of the american people senators must be allowed to vote on this question so that repeal legislation might go to the president for his consideration in the meantime heritage distinguished fellow ernest istook who sat on the appropriations committee for 14 years and government relations director brian darling say that an incremental strategy is critical to start the de facto repeal of obamacare lawmakers should focus on dismantling the key provisions that form the very foundation of the law s architecture this means for example going after the pillars of the law through a variety of means like de-funding its critical aspects engaging in aggressive oversight of the consequences of the law and enacting legislative triggers to delay or block its implementation all these approaches will contribute toobamacare s implosion while that important national debate is taking place the house of representatives can move to defund provisions of obamacare through either a rescissions package or funding riders congress is not required to fund this law or the myriad of new programs that it spawned like every other federal program the current congress can adjust ­ or even zero out ­ the level of funding for the implementation of obamacare special provisions in the health care law will complicate the process but the propriety of de-funding is unquestionable as noted by the congressional research service crs congress is not required to provide funds for every agency or purpose authorized by law de-funding is a legitimate use of the power of the purse that the founding fathers wisely granted to congress it won t be easy obamacare was designed to be the governmental equivalent of kudzu ­ growing everywhere however obamacare is not a fait accompli no matter what the left is telling you after a clean repeal we can move on to debate what good ideas on health care can be adopted in the future as heritage health care expert nina owcharenko does in her report repealing obamacare and getting healthcare right the house of representatives acted wisely last night now the debate opens again it s a national debate we need to have and we need to have it now don t listen to those who want to stifle this debate or close this controversy there s nothing uncivil about standing up for your freedoms this is no time for summer soldiers and sunshine patriots -the heritage foundation 1/11 for more resources visit ·5
