Stand Up For Religious Freedom Rally March 23rd

On January 20, the Obama administration made it clear that the new HHS mandate requiring employers to provide free contraceptives, sterilization and abortifacient drugs through their insurance plans would be imposed on religious institutions.

The HHS provided a “religious exemption” so narrow that it would exclude Catholic hospitals, universities and charities, forcing these institutions to act in direct opposition to Catholic teaching through the health care plans they provide.

Institutions run by other religious organizations would be similarly affected.

Religious leaders across the country have been speaking out against the HHS Mandate, including 171 Catholic bishops, and numerous lawsuits have been filed by Catholic institutions.

And now it’s time for direct, grassroots activism!

On March 23 at Noon, concerned citizens will gather outside federal buildings in cities across the United States to rally in defense of religious freedom and stand up against the HHS Mandate.

Join the effort! Find a Rally for Religious Freedom in a city near you.

Sam’s Big Government Backpack

U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) explains how big government is making it harder for Americans to find jobs and more difficult for small businesses to succeed. When big government puts too many burdens on America’s economy, it forces jobs and investment overseas instead of here at home. It also makes it harder for middle class small business owners to compete against large corporations, discouraging real competition and job growth.

Here’s a list of some of the obstacles that big government has created that make it harder to achieve success in America:

– $1.75 trillion regulatory costs
– $15 trillion national debt
– $2 to $3 trillion in state and local debt (http://bit.ly/zQwqfb)
– $100 trillion unfunded liabilities for entitlement programs
– ObamaCare taxes and regulations
– More than 75,000 pages of IRS tax rules & regulations (http://bit.ly/ejX73Z)

Obamacare’s Impact on Businesses & the Economy

In 2006, when Indiana small-business owner Scott Womack purchased a development agreement to expand his IHOP franchise into Ohio, he had no idea Congress would pass a massive overhaul of the health care system four years later. Today, one year after that legislative overhaul became law, Womack is very aware of Obamacare — and of its effects on his plans for growth.
