ACLJ Calls U.S. Representatives Vote to Repeal ObamaCare a Step in the Right Direction
"The House vote repealing ObamaCare sends a significant message across America - the high court got this one wrong," said Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel
WASHINGTON, July 12, 2012—The U.S. House of Representatives successfully voted for a repeal of the health care law, the first time since the Supreme Court upheld the law last month. Attorneys for the nation’s top conservative public interest law firm say the vote sends a strong signal to the White House that the fight over ObamaCare is not over.
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has filed numerous amicus briefs and represented hundreds of members of Congress and hundreds of thousands of Americans opposing ObamaCare. More than 100,000 Americans reached out to the ACLJ in less than two weeks, urging the House to repeal ObamaCare.
"The House vote repealing ObamaCare sends a significant message across America. The high court got this one wrong and most Americans understand the only way to correct this injustice is to repeal the health care law," said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the ACLJ. "The government-run law creates a damaging tax, while at the same time, dramatically expands funding for abortions. The action taken by the House reflects the will of the majority of the American people and underscores a deep concern that ObamaCare puts affordable, pro-life health care at risk."
Today's vote in the House is still only one part of a full repeal.
"The focus now turns to the Senate. While repeal there remains an uphill battle, we're confident that the American people will call on their senators to take the same kind of bold action as the House by scheduling a vote to repeal a pro-abortion, government-run law that is both dangerous and damaging to the nation," said Sekulow.
The American Center for Law and Justice focuses on constitutional law and is based in Washington.
