Obamacare and snooping

There is a chance Obamacare could be defunded! How realistic it is to expect that this may or may not happen remains to be seen. Nevertheless, I'm glad it is at least a possibility. The majority of Americans don't want Obamacare anywhere near them, but politicians have a way of doing what they want to do no matter what the people who elect them want them to do.
“This is the last stop before ObamaCare fully kicks in on Jan. 1 of next year for us to refuse to fund it,” Lee said Monday on “Fox and Friends.”
“If Republicans in both houses simply refuse to vote for any continuing resolution that contains further funding for further enforcement of ObamaCare, we can stop it. We can stop the individual mandate from going into effect,” he said.
“We have 64 of my colleagues on this letter and we’re asking the leadership not to bring anything to the floor that has funding for ObamaCare in it,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), who is spearheading the House effort. 
Now. This is the same government we're dealing with that targets conservatives and pulls underhanded tricks to defeat opponents. And these are the same Republicans (by and large) who support big government.

On a different though remotely related note, the records of government snooping are being erased. Tea Party member Christine O'Donnell's tax records had been illegally publicized against her during her Congressional fight in Delaware (by media - Democrat) but now evidence of that illegal activity has disappeared.
“So far, it appears the department destroys the access records after a short amount of time,” Mr. Grassley said. “That’s puzzling. Unless the IRS has a back-up, and I hope the IRS does, there’s no way to know how and when Delaware state employees accessed Christine O'Donnell’s federal tax records.”
Mr. Grassley also noted that if records are routinely destroyed, this also would cast doubt on the state explanations.
“If the records were destroyed, it’s also hard for the state to support its statement that its record access occurred only in response to a public report, and not before,” he said.
