OBAMACARE Tax: Started in Senate, So Unconstitutional

November 30, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC/ATLANTA, GA (Nov. 30, 2015):  Southeastern Legal Foundation, along with the Tennessee-based Beacon Center, today filed an amicus brief challenging the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), known as Obamacare, because the "ongoing tax" the high court identified in an earlier decision violates the Origination Clause of the U.S. Constitution.  The Clause holds that "all Bills for raising Revenue" must "originate in the House of Representatives."  Obamacare in its current form was a Senate bill. 


SLF and Beacon Center filed the brief based on recent Supreme Court precedent that clearly held the fines and penalties in Obamacare are a tax.  Sissel v. Dept. of Health and Human Services, et al., No. 15-543
