That was yesterday’s headline in the Texas Tribune. With all the fake impeachment nonsense in the news, you could be forgiven for missing it.
This couldn’t be bigger! The Supreme Court previously ruled that Obamacare is only Constitutional because the individual mandate was a tax, which congress has the power to levy.
However, President Trump’s tax relief law eliminated the individual mandate tax.
Led by my office, a coalition of states’ attorneys general sued arguing that 1) if it was only legal if it were a tax, and 2) the tax no longer existed… then Obamacare was no longer Constitutional.
A federal judge in Fort Worth agreed! A group of leftist states then appealed to the 5th circuit which this week affirmed the decision that the individual mandate is unconstitutional
But the fight isn’t over!
The case has now gone back to the Texas federal judge to show that the ruling in fact means that none of Obamacare can stand and must be struck down in its entirety.
TO DERAIL THIS PROCESS, CALIFORNIA HAS INDICATED IT MAY SEEK IMMEDIATE SUPREME COURT REVIEW OF THE FIFTH CIRCUIT’S DECISION DECLARING THE OBAMACARE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
What started out as a massive socialist takeover of our healthcare industry and has been responsible for skyrocketing costs, denials of services, and time-wasting inefficiencies, is now almost dead thanks to my team and our dedicated partners around the country.
A law so secretive, complex, and obtrusive that partisan Democrats alone had to “pass it to see what’s in it” (in Nancy Pelosi’s immortal words), is gasping its last breaths thanks to the relentless pressure of ordinary Americans, President Trump, Congressional Republicans, and dedicated AG offices across America.
