AG's lawsuit 'an important step in protecting our freedom'
Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has filed a legal challenge against Obamacare, a move which was applauded by my OCPA colleague Jason Sutton, an attorney and health policy analyst. “Not only does the individual mandate to purchase health insurance stand as the greatest threat to individual liberty in recent memory,” Sutton says, “but the entire health reform bill is written in a way that will raise premiums on the insured, increase taxes on hardworking families, eliminate jobs, and push states toward bankruptcy. More than half the states in the nation have filed lawsuits pushing back against bureaucrats who think they can manage our health decisions better than we can. This lawsuit is an important step in protecting our freedom.”
