Democrats tell us that ObamaCare is “the law of the land,” and that the Supreme Court declared it constitutional, and that we should get used to it — it’s here to stay. Actually, the Court found ObamaCare unconstitutional on two counts, but let it pass anyway.
The problem for defenders of ObamaCare is that its court challenges just keep coming. One place to check up on them is the website Health Care Lawsuits. In September, American Enterprise Institute ran an article by Chris Conover headlined “Will the Courts Derail Obamacare?” The article covers several of the ongoing court challenges to ObamaCare, including the status of each case. (The article also ran at Forbes.)
On October 5, National Review ran a terrific article by former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy that addresses a specific legal challenge:
H3101, the “Obamacare Nullification” bill, passed by a strong vote in the House but has been getting stonewalled in the Senate. That resistance cracked this week with HEAVY grassroots pressure and support. The Senate recalled H3101 out of the finance committee with a vote of 26-19. The Senate then followed up with a “special order” vote of 28-16 – to move H3101 towards the top of the schedule.
This was absolutely necessary because the legislative deadline for 2013 is coming up within a few short days. BUT, the special order vote was to put the bill BEHIND the ethics bill. It has only a slim chance to be voted on in time unless it’s moved AHEAD of ethics. Listen to Senator Lee Bright on the South Carolina’s radio show Jonathan and Kelly on May 30th hour 2 radio show here.
Please take the following actions today – over the weekend and in the evening as well – to help H3101 move forward!
1. Call your State Senator. Tell them to vote YES on H3101 before the session ends.
