Supreme Court to review job-destroying healthcare lawPosted by Randy | November 15, 2011
The Supreme Court announced it has agreed to review the constitutionality of the new healthcare law. The primary question the justices will consider is whether in requiring most Americans to buy health insurance, the law oversteps its power to regulate interstate commerce.
The legal challengers include 26 states, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, and individuals who say that the law will hurt small businesses and compromise individual choice on medical care. You can read more about the Supreme Court’s decision to review the law in this article in USA Today.
As you probably know, I have voted to repeal and replace the job-destroying healthcare law and I’ve taken actions over the past several months to curtail massive spending related to implementing the healthcare law. You can read about that work here. Additionally, I signed onto a brief asking the Supreme Court to hear the case.
Weigh in - Do you believe the individual mandate included in the healthcare law is unconstitutional?
