Obamacare the Wrong Prescription for America
Igor Berman’s grandmother died an American citizen after decades of suffering under Soviet rule. Despite all the hardships she faced she held on to her dream of America and freedom — a dream millions of people all over the world share, he said.
The country’s current political path could devastate those dreams, Congressman Tom McClintock’s chief of staff, who immigrated to the United States with his family in 1994, told guests at the Tea Party Patriots of El Dorado Hills meeting Wednesday night.
“If we screw up this country there’s no place for us to go,” Berman proclaimed.
Applause and cheers filled the Lakehills Covenant Church auditorium where a receptive crowd of nearly 300 came to hear panel members discuss the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, which was signed into law in 2010.
Joining Berman at the podium were Pacific Legal Foundation attorney Tim Sandefur, Physicians Council for Responsible Reform member Dr. Ronald Tachibana, Pam McDonald with McDonald Medical Consultants and Midtown Primary Care Associates, and Pacific Research Institute President Sally Pipes.

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate and other provisions of the Affordable Care Act, declaring that the mandate is permissible as a form of taxation. However, a majority of the court also specifically recognized that the mandate violates the Constitution's Commerce Clause — a holding that is consistent with arguments submitted by Pacific Legal Foundation, along with other constitutionally based critics of the law.)
