Congress passed it, the Supreme Court upheld it, and Americans rejected the presidential candidate who vowed to repeal it.
But the battle over Obamacare continues to rage, and on Wednesday, Tampa was ground zero.
Some 500 people fired up to kill the health care overhaul turned out for a town hall meeting Wednesday night to bemoan the law and jeer and groan at any mention of Republicans skittish about refusing to fund it.
Theyre afraid to have a showdown with someone whos tearing up our country, said Jim DeMint, the former South Carolina senator who now leads the conservative Heritage Foundation. This is the time. This might be the last off-ramp for us to stop Obamacare before it gets so enmeshed in our culture that its impossible to change.

I agree with this statement by Jim DeMint. I only wish he had been more vocal when he was a Senator.
But but but Uncle Democrat tells us the TEA party movement is over! Now HOW can THIS be hmmmm?
Answer Obama and the Democrat Party!!!
SIGN & ENDORSE, (www.dontfundobamacare.com) NOW!!!
Obama-care will be funded in the next CR or budget and unlikely there will be a shutdown.
DeMint knows this. It be great if it wasnt true.
A shutdown doesnt cut Obama-care funding anyway, but since the defense budget ends Sept 31 it would stop the troops pay. To cut Ocare funding Obama actually has to sign a bill cutting that funding.
Anyone on the planet Earth believe he would do that?
