There are some things Congress does not the authority to do!

We are facing the brutal reality of what the 111th Congress has forced down our throats:

* Abortion coverage Americans don't want
* Exorbitant costs Americans don't want
* Mandatory participation Americans don't want
* New federal bureaucracies Americans don't want
* A vast expansion of IRS power Americans don't want

Our Constitution is being subverted right before our eyes.

Never before has the will of the people been so completely ignored and marginalized. Obamacare is unconstitutional! If Congress has the power to FORCE each person to have health insurance, then individual liberty is totally meaningless....

The bill that passed the House of Representatives on Sunday night is unconstitutional because:

1) Congress has NO authority to force every American to carry insurance coverage, and,
2) Congress has NO authority to fine employers whose policies do not have the mandated coverage.

There are some things Congress does not the authority to do!!! And the threat to our liberty posed by ObamaCare goes FAR beyond healthcare. If Congress can get away with this expansive power grab, then individual liberty and state sovereignty will soon vanish.

"As a concerned citizen, I am signing this official statement to demonstrate my support of litigation challenging the Constitutionality of ObamaCare as passed by the 111th Congress. Specifically, I believe that government-mandated requirements for individuals to obtain health insurance are unconstitutional. Congress is not granted the power to force Americans to comply with such a mandate. Likewise, I believe requirements that employers provide such insurance coverage are also unconstitutional.

If Congress had the power to force Americans to have health insurance, then individual liberty would be overpowered and thus become meaningless. No matter what certain elected officials may desire, there are some things Congress simply cannot do under our Constitution. I do not want the federal government or any group of bureaucrats policing my private medical decisions. The legislation that passed Congress on March 21, 2010, popularly known as the ObamaCare healthcare reform bill, contains such a “mandate,” and is therefore a threat to individual liberty and the sovereignty of the States. I therefore support legal action to stop ObamaCare.

The American People Will Not Allow a Corrupt Machine to Dictate Their Future

On the floor Sunday night, Congressman John Boehner aptly summarized the consequences of voting for this bill:

"If we pass this bill, there will be no turning back. It will be the last straw for the American people. And in a democracy, you can only ignore the will of the people for so long and get away with it. And if we defy the will of our fellow citizens and pass this bill, we are going to be held to account by those who have placed us in their trust."

2010 and 2012 will be among the most important elections in American history.

These elections will allow us to save America from a leftwing machine of unparalleled corruption, arrogance, and cynicism.

The American people will not allow a corrupt machine to dictate their future.

Together we will pledge to repeal this bill and start over on meaningful, effective, healthcare reform.

Together we will prove that this will not stand.
