Supreme Let-Down

The Supreme Court has made the tragic decision to uphold the health-care law, including the individual mandate that will require every American to purchase health insurance whether they want it or need it.

And while it is devastating to lose this battle, I want you to know that we will never, ever stop fighting to defend your personal freedoms, to keep government out of your life and out of your business.

Like you, we worry about what might come out of Washington, D.C. next. We are here for you, always ready to tackle big government and do everything in our power to wrestle it to the ground.

That’s why NFIB is already calling on Congress, again, to go back to the drawing board by repealing Obamacare. We are loudly reminding them that Obamacare is a disaster for the small-business community, for the American economy and for freedom itself. You can help.

There is no better way to amplify your voice on Capitol Hill than by encouraging your friends and colleagues to join NFIB.

With the president’s health-care law increasingly unpopular and an important election looming, it’s not too late to gain full repeal. NFIB’s full team of lobbyists will be immediately going to Capitol Hill to let every Member of Congress know that they simply must get serious about repealing Obamacare and lowering the cost of health insurance right now.

Because we went all the way to the Supreme Court, NFIB’s profile on Capitol Hill has been raised higher than ever before. We will use this to our advantage by showing Congress what must happen next. Once full repeal is achieved, we have solutions for lowering costs ready for them to follow.

Thank you for being part of NFIB and for all you do to make this country great; we will not stop fighting to defend your personal freedoms and keep the government out of your life and business.
