Why Obamacare needs to be Repealed!

A few years ago, I listen to a speech on health care where a speaker shocked the audience when he told them that the number of Canadians who are not covered by health insurance in their country would be the equivalent of 15 to 20 million Americans. Studies by MIT, the Cato Institute and the CBO have supported these numbers; so how do we declare health care a right when at minimal 5 to 10% of Americans would not see the benefit of the law on any given day?   Read more »

Will Supreme Court Decision Unite America?

“…we place Liberty at Peril.”
Dissenting Justices Scalia, Thomas, Kennedy, Alito
"Excessive taxation ... will carry reason and reflection to every man's door, and particularly in the hour of election."
Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Taylor, 1798

SCOTUS

How the Justices Ruled on Health Care last week was a sad day for people who understand that the Affordable Health Care Act is not good for America. We were not only catapulted into Socialism but we lost any hope for justice from our Supreme Court. Justice Roberts washed his hands in front of the American people much like Pontius Pilate.

Thoughts And Concerns On The Supreme Court Decision On ObamaCare

Justice John RobertsObamacare passed its constitutional test as Chief Justice John Roberts punted. Roberts was left with a dilemma, does he overturn an important Congressional imperative by the narrowest of margins?

This would have put the Court at war with the executive, an executive branch ready to do a search and destroy against the Court. In a war that would have resembled Roosevelt's war on the Court in the mid 1930’s, Roberts feared for the reputation of the Court, but on the other hand, there was no doubt that the mandate was unconstitutional and a complete misreading of the commerce clause.   Read more »

Obama's Victory Today will Cost Him Re-Election in November - Fire Up the Base to Vote!

Today the Supreme Court of the United States delivered President Obama a nice little package all wrapped up in a bow - a landmark victory in declaring the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare). While this is clearly a victory in this particular battle, will this be the catalyst needed to bring the conservative base back to the rolling boil it was before the 2010 mid-term election?   Read more »

Disappointed but not Deterred

While millions of Americans are disappointed by today’s decision, Congress will not be deterred in our commitment to repeal Obamacare. The individual mandate may have been found to be constitutional as a tax, but that doesn’t make it good policy for the American people. The President’s promises about Obamacare have proved hollow. Obamacare costs our economy trillions of dollars, imposes new and burdensome taxes on

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 »

“In My Second Term, I Guess I’ll Pass It Again”

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.

While Americans wait for a Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare, President Obama has signaled he will push for ObamaCare all over again if the court strikes it down:   Read more »
