Myrick Applauds Virginia Ruling On Health Care Law

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) has released the following statement in support of U.S. District Court Judge Henry Hudson's ruling that the individual mandate of the new health care law is unconstitutional:

"I've said since before the bill passed that the individual mandate in the health care law violates the Constitution - specifically the Interstate Commerce Clause. It's wrong that the government now has the power to punish the American people for not purchasing a product, in this case, health insurance. I applaud Judge Hudson's ruling, and hope that other state governments, and ultimately the Supreme Court, will rule in favor of upholding the US Constitution".

Rep. Myrick released a video discussing the unconstitutionality of the health care law based on the individual mandate in March 2010.
