For Immediate Release

Group Applauds DC Circuit for Striking Down Obama

Administration's Policy of Subsidizing ObamaCare Enrollees Usingthe Federal Exchange Saying, "You can't have it both ways." 

Philadelphia, PA (July 23, 2014) --  The independence Hall Tea Party Association applauds the DC Circuit Court of Appeals for ruling against the Obama Administration's policy of illegally subsidizing

ObamaCare enrollees who register for health care through the Federal Exchange.

"The Affordable Care Act, an oxymoron if there ever was one, 

intentionally prevented taxpayer subsidy of enrollees using the Federal Exchange because Democrats in Congress wanted the 50 states to set up their own exchanges. 

As an incentive for the states to set up exchanges--the law only permits federal subsidies for those enrollees using State Exchanges,"  said Association President Teri Adams.

"In opposition to ObamaCare, 36 states refused to setup exchanges--something Democrats in Congress did not anticipate.

"The Obama Administration has been thwarting the law and stealing from the Federal treasury in order to keep the absurd 2000+ page ObamaCare law viable.  Without those subsidies, several million Federal Exchange enrollees could not afford to pay for their policies and they would be furious.

"The Administration cannot have it both ways.  Democrats in Congress intentionally decided to subsidize only enrollees using state exchanges.  Even the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which disagreed with the DC Circuit in a similar suit, said that their decision was a close call," said Ms. Adams.

"We would argue that this is not a close call.  The Democrats in Congress, too clever for their own good, wound up undermining the Obama Administration's signature piece of legislation.

"If the US Supreme Court  agrees to hear this case, Chief Justice John Roberts cannot simply reinterpret provisions that were plainly and clearly written into the law the way he redefined a "penalty" as a "tax" in his 2012 decision upholding ObamaCare.

"The Supreme Court cannot save ObamaCare this time without usurping the role of Congress.

"Congress is the only branch of government with the authority to remedy ObamaCare--and House Republicans will not do so without completely dismantling most provisions of the ridiculous 2000+ page so-called 

'Affordable Care Act.'"

For Immediate Release

 Association Leader Reacts Negatively to SCOTUS Immigration Ruling

Philadelphia, PA (June 25, 2012) -- Teri Adams, President of the Independence Hall Tea Party Association, voiced major objections over today's US Supreme Court ruling on Immigration and, at the same time, announced a Thursday Press Conference (11 AM) on Independence Mall, 5th and Market Streets, to discuss the court's ruling on the both the Arizona Law and ObamaCare.

"While we are still analyzing the full impact of the US Supreme Court's ruling on Arizona's immigration law, also known as SB 1070, we are very disappointed by the court's decision striking down three of the law's four provisions."

"The provision which was upheld, allowing police officers to check the immigration status during routine stops, could be easily overturned in the near future as the court is expected to revisit the issue in subsequent legal challenges."

Ms. Adams noted that, according to recent national polls, nearly 60% of Americans approved of the Arizona law.

"At the heart of today's decision is the misguided notion that only the Federal government has the right pass and enforce laws pertaining to illegal immigration simply because the US Constitution grants the Federal government jurisdiction over the 'naturalization' process," Ms. Adams said.

"Would the court use the same logic in regards to other illegal activity--such as murder and theft--which can also fall under the pervue of the Federal Government under the US Constitution?

"Justice Anton Scalia pointed out that since SB 1070 was not in conflict with Federal law, the state of Arizona, being a sovereign entity, has every right to pass and enforce laws that complement--not conflict with--Federal law.

"And when Federal Immigration Laws are not being enforced in the various states, shouldn't those states then have the right to do what the Federal government--and in this case the Obama Administration--is refusing to do?"
