Washington, DC – The United States Supreme Court issued a 5-4 split decision this morning upholding Obamacare as constitutional as a tax. The Court also ruled that Congress can levy penalties on individuals with no health insurance.
“We will not comply with this socialistic and oppressive law that forces us to not only purchase insurance we may not want, but more importantly, forces us to violate our consciences and fund abortion coverage,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. “We must demand that Congress change the law for the good of our nation. If Congress will not change it, we still will not comply.”
In a shocker, Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the majority and wrote the opinion. Dissenting were Justices Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, and Alito.
Details of the ruling are still being sorted out. Operation Rescue will comment further as more details become available.
