I am reviewing our new amicus brief to be filed within weeks challenging ObamaCare at the Supreme Court. I can tell you that this brief represents a clear and compelling argument: the individual mandate, which forces Americans to purchase health insurance under penalty of law, is unconstitutional. It violates the Constitution.

I'm delighted to report that in addition to the 119 members of Congress who we will be representing on this brief, we have now heard from nearly 160,000 Americans who will stand with us - who will be part of our brief at the high court.

A majority of Americans have consistently opposed ObamaCare, with only 29% of Americans supporting it, according to a recent AP poll. But what caught my attention today was an opinion editorial in USA Today written by Dr. Marc Siegel, a respected physician, who also serves as a medical contributor on FOX News.

What Dr. Siegel pointed out is alarming. He argues there are several reasons why a growing number of physicians oppose the health care law. Many doctors, he says, just don't think the law makes economic sense. And, Dr. Siegel says the measure is likely to lead to what he calls a "diminished system" for patients.

That translates into longer waiting times for patients. And, according to a recent survey by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions research group, nearly 3 out of every 4 doctors surveyed believe ObamaCare won't reduce health care costs. What's more, a majority of physicians, who took part in another survey, don't believe the American Medical Association (AMA), which endorsed ObamaCare in 2009, represents their views. The primary reason: the AMA's support of the measure.

One more thing. If you think the new health care law will attract the best and the brightest to the medical profession, think again. According to this Deloitte survey, 69% of the physicians are "pessimistic about the future of medicine" because of the law.

Of course, none of these facts and findings has dampened the Obama Administration's optimism that this flawed law will clear the Supreme Court challenges ahead.

In what was described as a rally for ObamaCare advocates, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius warned that the law's opponents are "definitely going to take their best shot." As she put it: "Over the next few months we'll see the biggest barrage of attacks and misinformation about the law we've ever seen, and that's hard to do - increase the misinformation."

Sadly, most of the misinformation about ObamaCare is coming from the Obama Administration itself.

The facts are the facts. ObamaCare represents the largest expansion of abortion funding using taxpayer funds since Roe v. Wade. And, forcing Americans to purchase a particular good or service is a fundamental assault on our liberty - an extraordinary power grab - giving Congress nearly unlimited power over our lives.

Most Americans get it. A growing number of physicians get it.

And, soon, the issue will be before the Supreme Court. That is why it is so important for you to add your name to our new amicus brief, to be filed in early February. Time is short. We need to hear from you now.
