To save the citizens of South Carolina from costly taxes and regulation, Governor Haley has refused to set up a new health insurance exchange mandated by Obamacare. She will face political pressure to change her mind, and the governor will need all the support she can get.
Without the exchange, federal mandates won't work and the feds cannot distribute the necessary subsidies in exchange-less states. Obamacare falls apart. Congress will then be forced to revisit the law.
The only hope of preventing the largest expansion of government in recent history is for Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell and Senate President Pro Tempore John Courson to join with Governor Haley in rejecting the establishment of an exchange.
Demand an answer from Speaker Harrell and Senate President Courson and ask where they stand on Obamacare. Ask if they will stand with the governor to stop the Obamacare exchange in South Carolina.
Time is running out. By December 14th, 2012, a decision has to be made. The election may be over but Obamacare can still be stopped.
Send the form below or feel free to contact the Speaker of the House or Senate President Pro Tempore by phone to voice your concern, or to thank Governor Haley for her bold stand:

Bobby Harrell – 803-734-3125
President Pro Tempore John Courson – 803-212-6250
Stick with Governor and Say No to the Obamacare Exchange!
Dear [Decision Maker],
Governor Haley is bravely refusing to establish the health insurance exchange to comply with Obamacare. I agree with her decision and ask you to voice your support for her as she faces political pressure to concede. If enough states opt out of the health care exchange that is the heart of ObamaCare, Congress will have no choice but to reexamine the unconstitutional law.As a public official, you should stand with the governor and the people of South Carolina. We don't need the federal government interfering with our health care decisions. South Carolina businesses that don't offer health insurance will be fined up to $3,000 per worker, and many will leave the state. To run the exchange, taxpayers will pay millions of dollars so insurance companies can rake in easy profits.Obamacare is the largest expansion of government in recent history and you have the power to stop it. If not for South Carolina residents, then for their children and grandchildren.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
