On February 3, 2011, FreedomWorks and a coalition of conservative organizations sent a letter to the top leaders of the U.S. House and Senate, urging them to pass legislation stopping the Obama Administration from implementing Obamacare, pending review of the unpopular law’s constitutionality by the Supreme Court.
FreedomWorks is a national grassroots network of more than one million Americans committed to lower taxes, less government and more freedom. We are leading the charge to reverse the government takeover of health care and adopt a patient-centered approach.
Here is the text of the letter:
Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Reid,
On Monday Florida judge Robert Vinson issued a ruling on the 26-state lawsuit against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and found the law and its individual mandate to buy health insurance unconstitutional. Following after Virginia Judge Henry Hudson’s decision, the Florida ruling becomes the second significant case to deem the law unconstitutional, throwing into serious question whether it will survive judicial scrutiny. While we wait for the Supreme Court’s final ruling, expected to come down in late 2012 to 2013, taxpayers are presently being forced to pay for billions of dollars to implement a law that may soon be void.
At a time when our country faces an unsustainable $14 trillion debt, we hope there can be bi-partisan agreement that it would be fiscally imprudent to unnecessarily waste taxpayer dollars. Therefore, today we are writing to respectfully urge you to pass legislation halting implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act until the Supreme Court issues a final verdict.
