The stage is set at the Supreme Court of the United States. ObamaCare - the pro-abortion, government-run health care law - front-and-center - facing a number of serious constitutional challenges.
As you know, we've been involved in challenging ObamaCare from the very start. We're in federal court with our own lawsuit now pending before a federal appeals court. We presented our oral arguments to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in September arguing that the individual mandate, which forces Americans to purchase health insurance, violates the Commerce Clause.
We're also backing challenges by Virginia and Florida - cases that are now at the high court.
In fact, we will be filing a critical amicus brief this week in support of Florida's petition to the high court asking the Justices to uphold a decision by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals that declared ObamaCare unconstitutional.
In our brief to be filed, we will ask the high court to take this case without delay urging the court to declare ObamaCare unconstitutional and citing the questions surrounding the constitutionality of the individual mandate are a "matter of national importance."
What's encouraging is that a clear majority of Americans oppose ObamaCare underscoring the fact that this law is simply not good America. And, while more than 70,000 Americans signed on to our earlier petition opposing this flawed health care law, we're now at a critical new stage.
With the issue now before the Supreme Court, it is imperative that we send a strong message - not only in the legal arguments we make - but with the thousands who don't want ObamaCare as the law of the land.
That's why we are starting a new committee - The Supreme Court Committee to Declare ObamaCare Unconstitutional. If you've added your name to our committee in the past, we need to hear from you again. And if you've never voiced your opposition to ObamaCare, this is the time to do it. Add your name now.
The timing of exactly when the high court will take and hear these cases is yet to be determined. Some who are challenging the law are hopeful the Justices hear the case as soon as March, with a decision coming before the November 2012 elections.
There's no question about it. ObamaCare is on a fast track. And that's all the more reason we need to hear from you now.
We will keep you posted as developments unfold.
