Put a hold on ObamaCare ...

Fellow blogger Matt posted an informative article on Thursday regarding the Individual Mandate provision of ObamaCare. He cited Cincinnati attorney and Tea Party leader Jack Painter's comprehensive and forceful arguments against the constitutionality and dangers of the Individual Mandate. See Matt's post here


I came across a comment written 2/1/2011 in the Washington Examiner by Judicial Watch's Tom Fitton, which compliments Mr. Painter and proposes the next action to be taken regarding this unconstitutional law.


"Congress should declare a moratorium on the health care reform law (ObamaCare) until the courts can settle the issue of its linchpin -- the individual mandate. Even supporters of ObamaCare, perhaps even Obama himself, might concede that the law won't work as intended until the courts settle the core constitutional issues. What harm would there be in placing ObamaCare on hold?"


Unfortunately, funding for ObamaCare was not dropped from the CR or the FY 2011 budget as originally submitted by the GOP. Therefore, another block has been laid further cementing this terrible, intrusive, liberty-robbing law. Elections have consequences and the 2008 Election results haunt us still. 


To me it would have been worth drawing the line in the sand over not funding ObamaCare, Planned Parenthood and EPA. However the go-along-to-get-along unprincipled Republicans chose to drop this hot potato.
