  • Full repeal is the only option

    This week we received extremely disappointing news as the Supreme Court handed down their much anticipated decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare. In the narrow 5-4 decision the Court ruled the individual mandate, the centerpiece of the President’s health care law, unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause.

He was ten miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border when a gun fight broke out with as many as five illegal aliens and Agent Terry was shot and killed.
