TOPEKA – Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s foremost grassroots advocate for health care freedom, has commented on the Halbig v. Burwell ruling handed down yesterday by the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
The US Court of Appeals ruled that the Obama administration is breaking the law by spending federal tax dollars without congressional authorization to finance parts of the Affordable Care Act.
AFP-Kansas State Director Jeff Glendening released the following statement:
“The Affordable Care Act is a law that has provided a perfect example of government overreach. Kansans need access to our trusted doctors and insurance that works for us. The ruling just goes to show that the Obama administration has overstepped, and the courts are willing to take the law head on. This poorly functioning law is now leaving Americans in limbo. Americans for Prosperity-KS will continue to educate Kansans on the president’s health care law.”
AFP has led a five-year effort to relieve Americans of the burdens of ObamaCare since its inception in Congress. Activists across the nation have signed online petitions, organized phone banks and neighborhood walks, rallied at state capitols, and reached out to their lawmakers to urge them to repeal ObamaCare.
