The U.S. Supreme Court announced this morning that it will hear a challenge to the constitutionality of the controversial ObamaCare mandate — an unprecedented and massive expansion of the federal government. Citizens who don’t carry government required health insurance will be penalized.
Numerous legal challenges were filed within minutes of Obama signing the bill last March. More than half the states have joined in filing legal objections to the act, which was passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress. Arizona joined the multi-state, bipartisan lawsuit in April, 2010.
The socialized medicine mandate will guarantee skyrocketing insurance costs and physicians fleeing the field, making it more difficult to afford and find medical care. We may be about to live Benjamin Franklin’s adage, “People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.”
A decision is expected to be announced by summer, just preceding the Republican and Democrat conventions for the 2012 presidential election.
