June 30, 2011Breaking: New Court Decision on Individual Mandate

The wheel of judicial rulings on health care reform continues to turn.  The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the individual mandate portion of Obamacare is “a valid exercise of Congress’s authority under the Commerce Clause.”

To say that we at Revere America disagree with this finding would be an understatement.  We feel that this individual mandate is a government overreach and counter-productive to the goal of improving health care.

Rather than engage in the back-and-forth game of touting court rulings (none of it matters much until the Supreme Court weighs in), we call on Congress to halt the implementation of all parts of this burdensome law. 

Let’s pause and make sure we get health care reform right.

Stop playing with a horrible bill and repeal the HC bill. Stop implementation of it. I know from personal experience that it has made it harder to get private insurance and made it more expensive. It sucks! The other things I've heard about it, those continued surprises, promise to intrude on things that aren't even health care and are horrible too! Stop the stupidity and power grab now!

Look Congress is not paying for our insurance and what do they care their insurance is the best in the United states and they dont pay for nothing. When Obama is not relected then we can get this repealed...I think you can call Obama a dictator..

What is wrong with the people making new laws and the people trying to interpret these laws? I do not mean to be disrespectful of any lawmaker or judge trying to interpret said laws, but, come on folks, use some common sense. Do you really want the federal government telling you what you can and cannot do? In my lifetime we the people have been turning over our rights to the government slowly but surely. No prayer in school, the children reporting parents to the authorities for whatever discipline they the child doesn't like, saying it is free speech to be able to do things that anyone with a lick of common sense would not do in front of their parents, children, etc. When you let the government rule your every action, thought etc., you are giving away all rights to honor and morality. I for one do not want to give up all my freedoms to the government, whether said government is elected or forced upon me.

What's wrong with these courts. If he can mandate us to get insurance what'll it be next.

I believed we were a free country. the gov. can not tell us what to buy! I do believe it agianst our Law for the gov. to impose anything on us.

The government can require us to have auto insurance because driving is a privilege. The government can not require us to by life or health insurance because these are rights. There is a deference, many do not see.

To Members of Congress. Please halt funding and implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act. It is anything but affordable and will ruin the already weak healthcare system that we have in the US today.

As quickly as we are being turned into a nation of no choice and into a nation none of us recognize, congress is no longer of the people. They have no back bone and neither do the liberal media or those in the judicial system for the most part.
