Nov. 14, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued a statement praising the U.S. Supreme Court for taking up the case against Barack Obama's signature health care legislation:
"The Supreme Court decision over ObamaCare's individual mandate is one that will shape the future of the nation. Based on the outcome, we will either be a constitutional republic of limited powers, or an unlimited plutocracy of ever-increasing mandates on individuals. Government wants to force people to buy health care, U.S. treasuries, and to raid our pension funds — all to prop up the unsustainable entitlement state. That is not the America people believe in. It is authoritarianism.
"The Supreme Court is now the only thing that stands in the way of a government that can literally force people to do anything. No less is at stake in the case over ObamaCare's individual mandate."
