The election is over, but PLF’s Obamacare suit goes on!
Tea Party Patriots El Dorado Hills ^ | 11/15/2012 | DARWIN THRONE

Pacific Legal Foundation, located in Sacramento, has filed a new lawsuit on the constitutionality of Obamacare that will be heard by the Supreme Court.

Sacramento, CA; November 7, 2012: After this week’s election results, the costly, burdensome and intrusive Affordable Care Act (ACA) — “Obamacare” — is less likely than ever to be reformed, let alone repealed, by elected officials.

But a promising, powerful legal challenge is still going forward — litigated by attorneys with Pacific Legal Foundation, a watchdog organization that defends limited government, free enterprise, and individual rights, in courtrooms nationwide.

“Especially after the election of 2012, PLF is now on the front line in defending the rights of Americans against Obamacare’s violations of core constitutional principles,” said PLF Principal Attorney Paul J. Beard II. “Our commitment is strengthened, and our fight goes on.”

PLF’s client, Iowa City small business owner Matt Sissel, agreed. “I am in this lawsuit to defend liberty and the Constitution,” he said. “That purpose and that promise continue today. My lawsuit is more important than ever, and we’ll move ahead with it, all the way up the judicial system, if necessary.

“Quitting is never an option,” said Sissel, a member of the Iowa National Guard who was awarded the Bronze Star for service as a combat medic in the Iraq War. “In the military we learned you don’t stop halfway up the hill. The same goes with our courtroom challenge to Obamacare. I’m grateful to PLF for sharing my determination to move forward.”

God bless ‘em.

Keep fighting like hell.

Never give up.

So many people (and I have been tempted to do it myself) have been lured into throwing up their hands in despair.

Churchill didn’t do that when facing the Nazis.
Die-hard patriots didn’t do that when facing King George’s troops.
The early Christians didn’t stop believing and spreading the good news when their brothers and sisters were thrown to the lions.

We are standing at another crossroads in history. Yes, the election was a step in a very, very, wrong direction. But give up?

We can’t do that, folks.

Thanks Jayster, keep the news coming and God Bless PLF!!!

Your Tea Party in El Dorado Hills is one of the finest, for sure!!!

That victory party for Tom McClintock was inspiring on an otherwise somewhat unhappy night. Serano CC is such a beautiful site for victory parties.

If one thinks Obamacare’s violations of core constitutional principles wait until his next act starts retirement mandate.
