A Note From Our President

Dear Reader,

You've probably read about Congress' many attempts to repeal and scale back Obamacare, but the fight to stop the law is also taking place in courtrooms across the nation. Our Watchdog reporters are keeping tabs on lawsuits filed in Florida and California, aimed at stopping President Obama from using executive power to change laws on the fly, and preventing state exchanges from triggering mass cancellations. Obamacare is creating chaos at all levels of government, and we've been there to cover it all. Read more of our reporting on Obamacare in Florida and California at

Best regards,

Jason Stverak
President, Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity
