There IS a small ray of light shining up from the rubble of what is left of America. With Republican governors acting like – well, Republicans and crawling back to lick Barack Obama’s boots, it IS hard to accept; but the fight against Obamacare is still on. The feckless and traitorous John Roberts may not have destroyed us after all.
A lawsuit against the worst elements of Obamacare brought by Liberty Counsel, which has of course been ignored by the Democrat-controlled media, has been set for a rehearing by the U.S. Supreme Court. It will be reheard in the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. Court observers describe this move as extremely rare and believe this means the matter will almost certainly find its way back up to the Supreme Court itself.
Acting on a Supreme Court directive, Liberty Counsel, which is devoted to defending Christian civil rights, has filed a brief in defense of Liberty University. It has been green-lighted to argue not only against the contraceptive/abortifacient mandate, but the employer mandate, the abortion mandate on religious institutions, and the individual abortion mandate. Moreover, Liberty may argue against the entire Obamacare bill, which could collapse it completely based on the indisputable fact that Robert’s pronouncement of it as a tax stands in direct conflict to constitutional law demanding that all spending bills originate in the House and not the Senate, as what happened.
The Liberty case is the only one in the country challenging the entire employee mandate for all employers, not just “recognized” religious institutions. It will now be able to argue against the violation of an individual’s right to refuse to support abortion and its related actions based on a personal moral revulsion to the murder of innocent babies.
Obama may be able to buy off the plaintiffs in other cases, but not this one. Roberts will have to explain how what he called a tax could have originated in the Senate. There IS a small ray of hope of deliverance after all.
