SCOTUS Declares Administration Liars on ObamaCare…and more

In one of the most convoluted SCOTUS decisions since Roe v. Wade, the Affordable Care Act has, by and large, not been overturned. (There is an exception to this dealing with the instruction to states to vastly expand Medicaid. That will take much more time to even sort out.)

The “individual mandate,” contrary to the words of Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and his cast of Progressive Socialist Democrats, has been ruled a tax.

Pete Sessions Statement on the Supreme Court’s Ruling on ObamaCare

I released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the President’s health care law:

I will continue to stand up for the American people and fight for a full repeal of government-run health care. Texans are struggling to find jobs in the Obama economy, and the taxes in the President’s health care law only makes things worse.

ObamaCare is a product of Washington Democrats forcing a massive 2,700 page bill through Congress without reading it or revealing its full contents to the American people. In a sharp contrast to their approach, I support physician- and patient-approved health care policies that are crafted through a carefully measured and transparent process.   Read more »

Supreme Court Rules to Uphold Obamacare

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 today to uphold the constitutionality of Obamacare.

The Supreme Court made clear today that the American people will be the ultimate judge of ObamaCare. As Republicans, we will redouble our efforts to repeal this job-killing law.

We must replace it with reforms that expand access and enhance care without adding trillions of dollars to the national debt and inserting Washington bureaucrats between Americans and their doctors.   Read more »

Quid Pro O

National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is a political committee devoted to maintaining and increasing the 239-member Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

E-mails released Friday show that the Obama administration insisted that drug companies pay for an ad campaign to sell ObamaCare to the public through ad firms closely linked to the White House:

“PhRMA’s REPRESENTATIVE INDICATED THAT PhRMA WAS NOT PREPARED TO RUN ADVERTISEMENTS BEFORE SEEING HOW THE HEALTHCARE LEGISLATION DEVELOPED”: (Energy and Commerce Staff, “Investigation Update: Closed-Door ObamaCare Negotiations,” House Energy and Commerce Committee, 6/8/2012)

AD FIRM FOUNDED BY OBAMA ADVISOR DAVID AXELROD HIRED BEFORE PhRMA EVEN AGREED TO JOIN THE EFFORT:

ObamaCare, Done the Chicago Way

National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is a political committee devoted to maintaining and increasing the 239-member Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Newly released e-mails show the shocking lengths Democrats went to in order to force ObamaCare on the American people, including backroom deals with special interests:

QUID PRO QUO, CHICAGO-STYLE: “Drugmakers led by Pfizer (PFE) (PFE) Inc. agreed to run a ‘very significant public campaign’ bankrolling political support for the 2010 health-care law, including TV ads, while the Obama administration promised to block provisions opposed by drugmakers, documents released by Republicans show.”

The Democrats’ government takeover of healthcare is turning out to be full of surprises—and not in a good way. A new study predicts ObamaCare may gamble away $20 billion a year on so-called healthcare “incentives” that are likely to fail:   Read more »

ObamaCare Slush Funds Fuel Dems’ Wasteful Spending Addiction

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is a political committee devoted to maintaining and increasing the 239-member Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Recent revelations about ObamaCare’s slush funds are shocking even by Democrats’ standards. Taxpayer-funded grants under the government takeover of healthcare were apparently paying for “urban gardening” projects and bike clubs:

The Supreme Constitution and Activist Political Pressure

The long awaited oral arguments before the Supreme Court on the subject of the constitutionality of the Obamacare legislation are over, and the Justices are securely ensconced in the halls and offices of the Supreme Court conducting their discussions, and at this point, likely drafting a myriad of majority, concurring, and dissenting opinions.   Read more »
