Commemorate anniversary of Obamacare by repealing it

March 26, 2011

This week marked a sad anniversary as it has been one year since Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid jammed "Obamacare" through the House and Senate against the will and wishes of the American people.

Here are just some of the reasons why Obamacare must be repealed and declared as unconstitutional:

Government-run health care would mean federal bureaucrats making health care decisions instead of patients and their doctors. A government takeover of one-sixth of our economy would only mean higher costs, bigger deficits and more government waste. Government health care would stifle medical innovation, limit health care choices and raise insurance rates.

U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson already ruled last December in Virginia that Obamacare, or the individual mandate requiring the majority of American citizens to purchase health insurance, was unconstitutional.

This is about liberty and not being forced by the Obama administration to buy into this government plan. The bottom line here is repeal and throw out Obamacare. If the Democrat-dominated Senate rejects this, then the House should defund this reckless plan. Eventually this may and should wind up in the United States Supreme Court for a ruling.
