Thanks to the Supreme Court, Seniors Still "Trapped in Medicare"

In 2008, a group of liberty-minded citizens filed a lawsuit, Hall v. Sebelius, to disconnect Medicare Part A membership from their Social Security benefits. Last February, the D.C. Court of Appeals narrowly ruled in favor of the government, and the case seemed destined to reach the Supreme Court. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court recently announced that it would refuse to hear the case, thereby rendering the lower court’s decision final.

Unions deemed exempt from Identity Theft laws

As one of 22 Right to Work states in America, North Carolina workers are not required to belong to a union in order to keep their jobs. When 33 workers at AT&T exercised this right and resigned their membership in the Communication Workers of America Union in 2007, they were subjected to workplace harassment. The harassment then got worse as these workers had their private information made public.

Fisher v. University of Texas: Here’s Your Fact Sheet!

Abigail Fisher and Rachel Michalewicz, two Caucasian women, were denied admission to the University of Texas and subsequently filed suit alleging that the university’s selection process discriminated against them on the basis of race. Lower courts upheld its constitutionality in accordance with the Grutter v. Bollinger (2003) ruling.

The Supreme Court's Decision for Non-Lawyers

The Supreme Court's June 28th decision on ObamaCare came as a shock to many. But to others, it was a confusing document full of complexities that the mainstream media simply couldn't explain. There's so much more to the decision than most people know about, but the document itself is long and complicated. That's why we created an easy to read summary for our activists. We call it the Roberts Decision for Non-Lawyers. Download a copy at the bottom of this post.

FreedomWorks Live: ObamaCare Coverage

Today was a historic day for the Supreme Court, and for the future of health care reform. Here at FreedomWorks, we're both excited that the principles of limited government have been upheld, but disappointed in the outcome. However, the fight isn't over! We're still fighting to repeal ObamaCare, and we know that it's time for lots of victories in November!

ObamaCare Upheld as a Tax, But It’s Not the End of the World

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are… But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!” – Rocky, from Rocky Balboa (2006)This morning, the United States Supreme Court released its ruling on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. In a 5-4 decision, the Court found that the individual mandate is constitutional, but only as a tax. Chief Justice John Roberts joined Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor in this majority opinion. Justices Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas dissented, arguing that the entirety of the law was unconstitutional. To put it bluntly, this is a very complicated ruling that few expected in its given form.

FreedomRadio: What should -- and shouldn't -- replace the Democrats' health mandate

Click here to listen! If the Supreme Court strikes down the individual mandate, what next? My prediction is the mandate could very easily rise from the grave in a new form, namely, the "conservative" idea of giving everybody a new universal health care tax credit, coupled with a policy called "auto-enrollment." I call it a soft mandate, and it’s arguably as bad as the original.

ICYMI: "How to Beat ObamaCare, Part III with Dean Clancy and Senator Leah Vukmir" (Archived Version)

As the third part of our series “How to Beat ObamaCare”, FreedomWorks’s own health care policy expert Dean Clancy sat down with Wisconsin State Senator & certified pediatric nurse practitioner Leah Vukmir to discuss the upcoming Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare. In just thirty minutes, Dean & Leah discussed repealing and replacing ObamaCare with true patient-centered care, how Wisconsin and other states are handling the health care exchanges, and how to take control from the government and give it back to consumers.
