Romney, Obama not alone: Jindal fundraising on Supreme ruling opportunity
Written by 

jindal-historicMitt Romney and President Obama are not the only politicians availing of the fundraising opportunities made possible courtesy of  Thursday's Supreme Court's  healthcare law ruling which found Obamacare to be constitutional.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who has been on the national campaign road for fellow Republicans including Mitt Romney, has issued, through his campaign, Friday evening, a statement denouncing the ruling while taking advantage of the enormous  fundraising opportunities born by the historic controversial debate and court decision.

 

In the email, Jindal repeated the statement that is receiving much national media attention-his refusal to implement Obamacare in Louisiana.  The statement said, "I have vowed not to implement Obamacare in Louisiana, because this November we're going to elect a new President and a new Congress who will repeal and replace the terrible law."

Also, late Friday afternoon, the Louisiana Democratic Party sent out an email of its own blasting Jindal for that refusal claiming it was due to his Vice President ambitions and also claiming that his refusal to implement the law would hurt the state, financially.

Jindal is term-limited and cannot run for re-election.

Here is his message as published by his campaign, The Friends of Bobby Jindal: 


     

As we get farther away from the ruling, reality will dawn on people, and we will be right back to where we were. The American people did not want or approve of Obamacare then, and they do not now. Americans oppose it because it will decrease the quality of health care in America, raise taxes, cut Medicare, and break the bank.

The Court should have protected our constitutional freedoms, but remember, it was the President that forced this law on us. I congratulate the Supreme Court on one thing – they were far more honest about Obamacare than President Obama was. They rightly have called it what it is – a tax.

The truly frightening part about the ruling is the Court's declaration that President Obama can use the federal government to use their powers of taxation to compel behavior. What's next? Taxes on people who refuse to drive Chevy Volts or eat tofu? This is ridiculous.

Here is the big picture situation in America today. Success used to be measured by how many people we could get off the government dole, but now, under President Obama, we measure success by how many people we can get on government programs. Indeed, food stamp rolls have increased by 70 percent since 2007.

There used to be a stigma to relying on the government, but now it's celebrated. We have it 100 percent backwards in America today. We should celebrate people getting off of food stamps, off of Medicaid, and off of government health care.

The bottom line is that Obamacare eats into the spirit of independence that made America great in the first place, and if we don't repeal it soon, we will have more people riding in the cart than pulling the cart.

I have vowed not to implement Obamacare in Louisiana, because this November we're going to elect a new President and a new Congress who will repeal and replace the terrible law.

If you are small business owner, a middle-class taxpayer, or if you are worried about what Obamacare will do to the quality of your health care – you have only one option – make President Obama a one-termer.

Sincerely,

Governor Bobby Jindal



 Update

This was just received:

Supporter,
 
Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. But regardless of what the Court said about the constitutionality of the law, Obamacare is bad medicine, it is bad policy, and when I’m President, the bad news of Obamacare will be over.

It was always a liberal pipedream that a 2,700 page, multi-trillion-dollar Federal Government takeover of our health care system actually could address the very serious problems we face with health care. With Obamacare fully installed, government will reach fully half of the economy — that is the recipe for a struggling economy and declining prosperity.  

On Day One, I will work to repeal Obamacare to stop the government’s takeover of our health care and intrusion in our lives. I will push for real reform to our health care system that focuses on helping patients and protecting taxpayers.

We cannot afford Barack Obama’s on-the-job learning, Big Government proposals, and irresponsible spending. Our basic liberties are at stake — and I will fight to restore our freedoms, renew the respect for our Constitution, and halt the government takeover of health care.

This November it’s all on the line. The stakes couldn’t be higher.

Donate $10 or more to put a stop to the policies of Barack Obama and the liberal Democrats.

Thanks,

Mitt Romney

 

Also, This is from USA Today:

President Obama's re-election team has sent out the first fundraising pitch of the day playing off the Supreme Court health care decision.

"We don't know what will happen this morning," campaign manager Jim Messina tells donors in an e-mail.

"But, no matter what," he adds, "today is an important day to have Barack Obama's back."

Messina then writes: "If you're with him, donate now -- before this week's critical fundraising deadline."

The deadline is the end of the day (and the month) on Saturday.

The Supreme Court is expected to hand down its health care ruling between 10 and 11 o'clock this morning.
