On Wednesday the Supreme Court concluded oral arguments on the constitutionality of ObamaCare, and if you’ve been following the case, you know how close we are to victory.
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin calls the case “a train wreck for the Obama Administration” and noted that ObamaCare “is now in serious trouble, it also seems that the individual mandate is doomed.”
FreedomWorks members like you have been critical in our efforts to End ObamaCare Now, both through signing our petition and donating to support our Constitution Defense Fund. We’ve received over 200,000 signatures on our petition to End ObamaCare Now, which we’ve delivered to the Supreme Court, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid.
And clearly your constant grassroots pressure is working.
Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, the critical swing vote on the Court that will likely decide the case, was openly skeptical of ObamaCare during oral arguments:
“The government is saying that the federal government has a duty to tell the individual citizen that it must act,” he said, “and that is different from what we have in previous cases, and that changes the relationship of the federal government to the individual in the very fundamental way.”
Justice Kennedy also cautioned that the government has a “very high burden of justification” for ObamaCare, an indication that Justice Kennedy will likely oppose the individual mandate.
An official ruling is not expected until the end of June, but if Kennedy does join the conservative bloc represented by Chief Justice John Roberts, and Associate Justices Samuel Alito, Anthony Scalia, and Clarence Thomas…we will have a historic 5-4 decision to End ObamaCare Now!
Thanks to you, we are on the verge of defeating ObamaCare and undoing the cornerstone of the Obama presidency. This is huge. And we couldn’t do it without you.
