The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is an unprecedented overreach of federal power aimed at redefining the Constitution and distorting the intentions of our nation’s Founding Fathers.
The Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution did not grant Congress the power to directly impose an individual mandate to purchase healthcare insurance. Congress has never before attempted to use the Commerce Clause to justify imposing a mandate on economic inactivity; interstate commerce would not be affected.
The Tea Party movement has prided itself on defending the Constitution, and Obamacare is an attempt by a leftist Congress and Executive Branch to fundamentally and unconstitutionally alter our founding documents. America has not seen such an assault on and blatant disregard for our Constitution since September 17th, 1787 when it was adopted and ratified.
Now, as the Supreme Court gets ready to hear arguments over the Constitutionality of the individual mandate, we feel we should make this severe overreach of federal powers known to the America people. Whether the Supreme Court strikes down the mandate and throws Obamacare out in its entirety, or the Congress repeals it, Obamacare must not stand!
