Okla. Rep. Jason Nelson Statement On Supreme Court Health Care Ruling

State Representative Jason Nelson (R, Ok.), issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Nelson was a member of the Joint Task Force to Study the Federal Health Care Law last year.

"I want Oklahoma to stand strong in its continuing fight against the implementation of this destructive Federal law at every turn and I will do everything I can to assist in the effort.

"Chief Justice John Marshall's 1819 axiom, 'The power to tax is the power to destroy,' came to mind as I heard the news of the U.S. Supreme Court decision today upholding Obamacare on the basis that it is a tax. Clearly that power has been trained on individual and religious liberty by President Obama and Democrat Leaders in Congress.

"It is unimaginable that our Founding Fathers could have intended for the Federal government to compel American citizens to buy health insurance or pay a tax."
