Montgomery, Al. 36104
On Wednesday October 9, 2013 the Foundation for Moral Law filed an Amicus Curiae (friend of the Court) brief with the United States Supreme Court in support of a case brought by Liberty University challenging the Affordable Care Act commonly known as Obama Care.
The Foundation argues to the high Court that Obama Care is unconstitutional under the decision of that Court in NFIB vs. Sibelius holding that the Affordable Care Act was a lawful act of Congress under its power to tax. However, as a revenue-raising bill under the Origination Clause of the United States Constitution Obama Care should have originated in the House of Representatives and not the United States Senate where it was initially proposed. Therefore, Obama Care is simply unconstitutional because revenue raising measures must arise in the House.
