Dr. Steve Hotze, President of the Conservative Republicans of Texas, filed a federal lawsuit in Houston, Hotze v. Sebelius, on May 7, 2013 to overturn ObamaCare on the grounds that it 1) violates the Origination Clause, Article 1, Section 7 of the U.S. Constitution, and 2) it violates the Taking Clause of the 5th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Dr. Hotze interviewed United States Senator John Cornyn, who is drafting an amicus brief in support of this important lawsuit. In this interview, Senator Cornyn said:
“There are about 100 different lawsuits challenging Obamacare still in the pipeline. But, I think yours raises a question that’s never been resolved by the United States Supreme Court. And, that is whether the senate can originate a revenue raising bill, or whether it has to be raised in the House, which is what the Constitution requires. It’s a fundamental challenge to the way Obamacare was passed, and one that we think has a lot of merit.”
