We have had two great decisions declaring Obamacare unconstitutional, one in Virginia and one in Florida. The most important for us is Judge Vinson’s decision from Florida who ruled in the case to which the State of Texas is actually a party. He ruled that the individual mandate to purchase insurance is unconstitutional and that the entire Act is unconstitutional because there is no way to sever that provision from the rest of the statute.
Unfortunately, we have not been able to achieve any where near the ten thousand plaintiffs that we were hoping to gather together into one mass action lawsuit. We have a total of 281 plaintiffs. Thus, we did not file an individual lawsuit. However, we are going to be taking the actions we originally promised. We will be filing a brief in the Texas lawsuit on your behalf as it goes to the Supreme Court. There is a possibility, since the Attorney General of Virginia has asked for this to occur, that the Virginia case may be expedited and the next level of review will actually be at the Supreme Court. If that is the case, we will file a brief – a friend of the court brief – on your behalf at the U.S. Supreme Court – as we originally promised you.
Second, while it is not directly related to the original project, I believe that you will be pleased to know that we are going to be representing JoAnn Fleming and Grassroots America – We the People as an organization separately in a lawsuit against the State of Texas to stop Texas from illegally spending money to implement Obamacare now that it has been declared unconstitutional.

P.S. Some of you may ask, why wasn’t I put on that Texas case as a plaintiff? The answer is we did not have your permission. We did not use your name since that was not part of the original project.
P.P.S. Please keep us in your prayers as we fight for Liberty!
