LT. GOV. BRYANT REMARKS ABOUT FEDERAL JUDGE RULING ON OBAMA CARE LAWSUIT

Jackson – A lawsuit filed against Obama Care cleared a hurdle today when U.S. District Court Judge Keith Starrett refused to dismiss the suit, which is now undergoing further consideration by the judge. The lawsuit states the federal government does not have the authority to require citizens to buy health insurance. Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant released this statement:

“I have long believed that Obama Care is unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Keith Starrett’s decision to hear my lawsuit on the merits gives me the opportunity to prove that the Obama Administration’s attempt to force all Americans to purchase health insurance violates our rights. I look forward to continuing this fight.”
