Occupy DC Protester Runs Full-Page Ad Challenging Obama to Debate

Washington D.C. (PRWEB) December 05, 2011 — Inspired by participating in the Occupy DC movement, and after almost 2 years spent developing a better solution to the issue of high premiums and swelling ranks of uninsured than Obamacare, Glenn Morton is attempting something never before tried by a non-political American: directly confronting a sitting United States President, and publicly challenging him to a debate, in an effort to stop legislation.

Literally nose to nose with President Obama in the ad, Mr. Morton says that Obamacare gives health insurers a “permanent financial stake in the earnings of every person, and every employer over 50 employees, in America”.

He points out that, if the Supreme Court rules the individual mandate constitutional, then repealing Obamacare after the election will no longer matter, as the federal government will “always be able to take as much money from us as they want, and for whatever they wish”.

In a pre-emptive move, Mr. Morton requested that President Obama ask the Congressional Budget Office to “reassess the cost and penalties in Obamacare based on 25%, 33%, and 50% exchange participation in 2014…so we see the potential impact of PPACA on our bank accounts, our businesses, and the economy”.

In a November 22nd, 2011 speech at Manchester Central High School in New Hampshire, President Obama told the audience the Occupy protesters were the reason he “ran for office in the first place”.
