(Washington, DC) -- The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which is challenging ObamaCare in the courts, said today's vote by the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal the troubling health care law is "historic and reaches far beyond symbolism by reflecting the will of the American people."

The ACLJ has heard from more than 70,000 Americans who have signed on to a petition urging Congress to repeal ObamaCare.

"This vote is historic and reaches far beyond symbolism by reflecting the will of the American people," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ.  "A clear majority of members in the House - as well as most Americans - understand that health care reform must happen, but the pro-abortion, government run ObamaCare falls short in so many areas.  This repeal vote emphasizes a legislative commitment to derail ObamaCare - whether it's through the repeal process or, as some are advocating, by defunding the law.  The legislative action coupled with the significant legal hurdles can only result in one outcome: an end to ObamaCare, a fresh start for health care reform."

The ACLJ is aggressively challenging ObamaCare in court.  It has filed its own federal lawsuit in Washington challenging the constitutionality of the law.  And, it represents members of Congress in filing amicus briefs supporting legal challenges by Virginia and Florida.

Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the ACLJ focuses on constitutional law and is based in Washington, D.C.
