WASHINGTON, Jan. 31, 2011 /Christian Newswire
/ -- A federal court has struck down the linchpin to ObamaCare, the mandate requiring every individual to buy health insurance. The judge agreed with twenty six states who challenged the law. Concerned Women for America's CEO Penny Nance said:
"We at Concerned Women for America feel vindicated by Judge Vinson's ruling that the ObamaCare mandate -- which forces Americans to buy health insurance -- is unconstitutional. This is the second federal judge to rule the law is unconstitutional and we urge Congress to go forward with repealing the law and all its unsavory elements: the unconstitutional mandate, the higher taxes, and the abortion coverage which almost killed the bill in Congress last year."
Concerned Women for America is the nation's largest public policy women's organization.
