On March 5, 2011, N.C. Democrat Governor Beverly Perdue vetoed “Protect Health Care Freedom” (HB 2) as passed by the GOP majority N.C. General Assembly. This bill would have allowed North Carolinians to opt out parts of ObamaCare and purchase their own healthcare.
President Obama is passing out “waivers” to many of his Labor Unions. N.C. Democrat Governor Beverly Perdue, in vetoing HB 2, is attempting to “cram ObamaCare down (y)our throats,” just as the Obama/Reid/Pelosi team did in 2010.
A majority of Americans continue to reject ObamaCare and call for its repeal; however, some Democrats on Capitol Hill who voted against ObamaCare in 2010 are now voting to maintain ObamaCare. Some of the so-called “Blue-Dog Democrats” are now voting in support of “taxsupported” abortions.
Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) said, “There’s no doubt this veto is a political move designed to protect the interests of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Washington Democrats. But it hurts North Carolinians by forcing them to follow an unconstitutional law. The people of North Carolina expect their leaders to change the course of state government, not score political points or protect their political patrons.”
