S.E.M., Vol. 1, No. 6

The President's Duty to Faithfully Execute the Law. According to Art. II, Sect. 3 of the Constitution, what is the President's duty? According to Lincoln, what does a man trample on, when he tramples on the law? According to Rep. Goodlatte, what is the value of strictly observing even bad laws until they are repealed? In a republic, why else, in your opinion, is obedience to laws put in place according to the process outlined in the Constitution, regardless of our personal opinions, important, if not vital?

Did Obama Administration Falsify Stats to Falsify Cost Projections?

Liberty Alerts,  JBS Freedom Campaign

The Census Bureau reported last week that the number of Americans without health insurance rose to 50.7 million last year. This is rather interesting since the Obama administration has claimed only 35 million as uninsured. Its cost estimates are based on the smaller number. The Congresssional Budget Office has released figures that point to a much larger cost than anyone in the administration wants to admit. Think what the 15+ million extra will do to those estimates! Does anyone honestly believe the rhetoric about ObamaCare saving healthcare dollars?

Something else to think about: 30 states have introduced nullification acts regarding ObamaCare and 6 of them have passed it. However, a closer look reveals that these may not advocate nullifying the entire ObamaCare law, rather just the individual mandate to carry health insurance. Truth be told, merely getting rid of this mandate does nothing to stop the new law. This is a mere minor sliver of the new law, which is designed to control all aspects of our nation’s healthcare system, as well as your lifestyle choices from cradle to grave. When working with your state legislators, press for nullification of the entire law. When working with Congress, push for an entire repeal.
