Scofield: "Court's Ruling A Blow to Individual Rights and Personal Freedom"

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling on ObamaCare is a severe blow to individual rights and personal freedom in the United States of America. Today’s ruling essentially said that Congress can force any mandate on the people of the United States and simply call it a tax.”

“I am afraid this is just the beginning of our fight against mandates passed down from the federal government which strip our individual rights away.  Our country is quickly heading in a direction away from the founding principles set forth by our forefathers.”

“ObamaCare is an unwarranted intrusion of the federal government into the marketplace   Effects of this decision will be felt far beyond health care. By allowing government to require citizens to buy a product or service at the federal government’s direction, the Court has destroyed the principle of a limited government.  The decision announced today will open the door to even more dictates from Washington.  We need only read the Court’s suggestion that Congress could, for example, force Americans to buy energy efficient windows or pay a tax.”

“According to recent polls, the majority of American people oppose ObamaCare, saying it will decrease the quality of health care in America, raise taxes, drive businesses out of business, cut Medicare by $500 billion dollars, and break the bank.”

“We must make sure that there is a majority in Congress that will not just repeal this law, but replace it with market-based health care policies that will improve quality and bring down costs.”

“The stakes just got higher in the November election.  We must send a message to Washington.  Let’s elect a President and members of Congress who believe in individual liberty and personal responsibility.  Let’s elect people who believe in the principles that are set forth in our Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence.  It’s time to elect Constitutional Conservatives who will move our country back in the direction that it was meant to go.”
