Sample letter text for supporting H.R. 2682: The Defund Obamacare Act of 2013, sponsored by Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA).

I urge you to support H.R. 2682: The Defund Obamacare Act of 2013. Obamacare will increase health care costs, cause insurance premiums to rise, will hurt the quality of health care, require a nearly $570 billion in tax hikes, and add over $500 billion to the national debt. Congress should drop Obamacare completely and pursue a careful and thoughtful process to develop targeted solutions that address practical problems in the health care system based on the principles of personal ownership, consumer choice, and free markets.

Why you should oppose Obamacare

Thousands of pages of incomprehensible legal gobbledegook cannot cure extremely complex social problems. If Congress were really intent on solving our health care crisis, it would take a simple, methodical, and common sense approach. Obamacare is about bloating an already over-bloated government, about spending money we don’t have, about quid pro quo pork, and about professional politicians trying to show the people that they’re “doing something.” If you want to know why Obamacare is a disaster, read these common sense and in-depth analyses here and here. A summary of these articles is provided below. First, from the GOP:
