What Today’s Obamacare Ruling Could Mean


Listen to analysis on today’s appeals court ruling (Audio)

Washington, DC – A three-judge panel of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals dealt a major blow to ObamaCare today. Hear Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, discuss it with BarbWire chief Matt Barber on Faith & Freedom.

“The Federal Court of Appeals ruled that tax subsidies that are central to the ObamaCare program may not be provided to at least half of the states,” Staver said. “The majority of state governors understood the monstrosity that is ObamaCare and chose not to set up exchanges. In all, twenty-seven states chose not to set up ObamaCare exchanges, and another nine partially opted out of exchanges,” Staver pointed out. “Only 14 states participated in setting up ObamaCare exchanges.”

“The law that Congress passed and Obama signed says that the federal subsidies can only be given out when someone enrolls in an exchange run by the states or the District of Columbia. However, in another attempt to circumvent the Constitution, bypass the Congress, and ignore the law, the President set up his own policy: the federal exchange at, which has been a bureaucratic nightmare.”

“ObamaCare has been a disaster since day one. Liberty Counsel filed the first private lawsuit against the program on the first day it was enacted. Bit by bit, the law is crumbling. People are not signing up. The courts are ruling against it. It is becoming more and more clear: Americans do not want this socialistic-driven agenda. ObamaCare does not improve healthcare.”

Hours after the ruling from the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a conflicting ruling, finding that the IRS rule for the federal subsidies is valid. This sets up a conflict between the federal Circuit Courts of Appeal and paves the way for these cases to go to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
