Skip to comments.Iraq Vet Continues Battle Against Obamacare

A year ago I compared decorated veteran Matt Sissel to Horatius, a Roman soldier said to have single-handedly defended a bridgehead against an invasion force intent on imposing a tyrannical regime on the free republic. Sissel is the plaintiff in a constitutional challenge to Obamacare due to be heard this Thursday by the D.C Circuit Court of Appeals. And, as the Horatius analogy suggests, he may be the last man standing between us and the legions of Beltway politicians who wish to subject us to the soft despotism of the bureaucratic state.
Sissel v. HHS is the only remaining lawsuit that has any chance of actually killing Obamacare. Neither the Hobby Lobby challenge to the egregious HHS contraception mandate nor the various lawsuits challenging the IRS decision to funnel tax credits and subsidies through ineligible federal insurance exchanges have this potential. Even if the government loses all of those cases, the much-despised reform law will continue to bedevil us. On the other hand, if Matt Sissel prevails against the administrations lawyers, Obamacare is history.

Godspeed, Matt Sissel.
If the origination clause is subverted by SCOTUS (if it gets that far), we are truly a nation without a conscience, ruled by elitists rather than governed by the will of the electorate.
We must all take some time to reflect on the fall of this grand experiment, and make the decision whether we will be complicit in its demise, or if we will stand in opposition, prepared to push back against the tide of progressivism that has crashed upon our shores.
