Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning comments on the States’ brief filed in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Thursday in the challenge of the federal health care law.
“Forcing Nebraskans to purchase a good or service violates our Constitution. This unprecedented congressional overreach must not stand.”
The State’s brief details the unconstitutional nature of the PPACA’s individual mandate requiring all Americans to acquire and/0r maintain health insurance coverage. In addition, the States argue that because the unconstitutional individual mandate is a critical component of the Act, it is necessary to declare the entire Act unconstitutional.
