MONTGOMERY, ALA. — Judge Roy Moore, former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice and President of the Foundation for Moral Law (http://www NULL.morallaw NULL.org/), issued the following statement about the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling today upholding ObamaCare (http://www NULL.supremecourt NULL.gov/opinions/11pdf/11-393c3a2 NULL.pdf).
Judge Moore stated:
“Perhaps the week before July 4th is an appropriate time to recognize the tyranny of the federal government that is now upon us. The recent history of our federal government, to quote the Declaration of Independence, ‘is a history of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.’ When the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court says that government may ‘tax’ individuals for health care, what is next–mandated life, home, and auto insurance? In ObamaCare, all three branches of government have ignored the Constitution and especially the 10th Amendment, which protects the rights of the states and the people to direct their own destinies. A return to God and the United States Constitution is the only hope for the future of our Country.”
Judge Moore and the Foundation for Moral Law, a religious-liberties organization, had filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court in the ObamaCare case, State of Florida v. Dept. of Health and Human Services.

The Foundation argued in its brief that the Constitution should be interpreted as the Framers intended it; that the Framers established a federal government with limited, delegated powers; and that the Constitution gives the federal government no authority to require states to expand their Medicaid programs and require citizens to purchase medical insurance. According to the Tenth Amendment, these powers are reserved to the states, or to the people. And just as Congress cannot require the states to expand their Medicaid programs, Congress also cannot cut off states’ federal Medicaid funds if they refuse to do so. Indeed, this part of the ObamaCare law was the only part restricted by the Court’s decision today.
