For “Obamacare Upheld-still bad law”, click here.

The solution to health care is not a trillion–dollar government takeover.  The solution is to give  consumers and healthcare providers more power, more control, and more choices.

Obamacare upheld – still bad law

June 28, 2012

Stopping Obamacare is now up to the American people.  The Court’s decision to uphold the mandate forcing Americans to purchase government-approved insurance based on its being a tax is deceptively disappointing – as it was sold to us expressly as NOT being a tax.

“Stand up for Religious Freedom” rally press release

Arizona legislators to attend “Stand up for Religious Freedom” rally

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX (June 7, 2012) – Tomorrow afternoon, Representative Debbie Lesko (R-Dist 9) will be addressing Arizona advocates of religious liberty to coincide with the this year’s second national Stand up for Religious Freedom Rally. Representative Lesko will be joined by Representative J.D. Mesnard (R-Dist. 21), State Senators Nancy Barto (R-Dist. 7) and Steve Yarbrough (R-Dist 21).

The event will build off of the success enjoyed by the first rally held earlier this year
in which 63,000 Americans in over 145 cities came together to publicly denounce
the regulatory over-reach and usurpation of religious freedom by the Obama Administration.

The rally will be held at noon tomorrow in front of:

Sandra Day O’Connor Federal Building East Plaza

401 W. Washington Street

In reflection of the efforts expended to counter the HHS mandate, Representative Lesko stated, “I am proud how we responded to the threat to our religious liberties posed by the Obama HHS mandate. HB 2625 made its way to the Governor’s desk because of the efforts of legislators such as Representatives Mesnard, Senators Barto, Yarbrough and many others whom recognized the detrimental effects this mandate will have on our religious freedoms.”
