Federal Judge Rules ObamaCare Unconstitutional

The federal judge presiding over the case challenging ObamaCare that was brought by twenty-six states has ruled that it is unconstitutional, null and void.

Judge Vinson agreed with the states bringing the suit that the law was unconstitutional in that Congress has no authority to mandate the purchase of health insurance by individuals, or to make them face a penalty if they fail to do so.

The argument centers around the Constitution's "commerce clause", which gives Congress the power to regulate interstate commerce.  The administration, and Democrats supporting the law claim that the mandate qualifies as a regulation of interstate commerce, but conservatives have pointed out that the mandate to purchase a product is essentially a regulation of activity that has not occurred...

Senate GOP Leader McConnell: "This fight isn't over!"

Note this from Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell's office yesterday.

It is astounding that after the historic 2010 election which swept the Democrats from control of the United States House of Representatives, that they still have not learned what the American people are trying to tell them:  REPEAL OBAMACARE!  Yet, every single Democrat and socialist in the United States Senate last evening voted against the Republicans' Repeal ObamaCare amendment, including the 23 Democrats up for reelection next year.   Meanwhile, every single Republican Senator voted to repeal ObamaCare...

GOP to Push to Overturn DC Gay Marriage Law

The battle over gay marriage could soon be resurrected in Washington, D.C.
 
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said conservative Republicans in Congress will almost certainly push a bill to overturn the city's law legalizing same sex marriage.

The measure was approved by the city council in 2009 despite efforts stay the law's mandate to recognize gay ceremonies, The Christian Post reported.

"I think RSC will push for it, and I'm certainly strongly for it. I don't know if we've made a decision, if I'll do it or let another member do it, but I'm 100 percent for it," Jordan told The Hill newspaper... (READ MORE)

Battle to De-Fund Abortion, Obamacare Starts Next Week

The battle to stop all federal taxpayer funding of abortions, and to ensure the Obamacare health care reform law does not allow abortion funding, starts in hearings in the House next week.

Two House committees will hear two of the billsthat are the highest items on the priority list for pro-life organizations: the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act sponsored by pro-life Reps. Chris Smith and Dan Lipinski and the Protect Life Act, sponsored by pro-life Rep. Joe Pitts.

The Smith-Lipinski bill would compile all of the annual provisions that prevent federal funding of abortions into one piece of legislation. The beauty of the bill lies in its ability to make what are annual battles to stop abortion funding permanent federal law. When it comes to taxpayer funding of abortions from the federal government, pro-life advocates have to fight several battles annually in Congress to ensure abortions are not funded in programs ranging from HHS and USAID to health care and the District of Columbia...
