Oct 21, 2010

Tomorrow Liberty Counsel will represent Liberty University and five additional clients against the new healthcare law opposing the federal government’s motion to dismiss in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia. Liberty Counsel’s lawsuit was filed on the same day the bill was signed into law and was the first private party lawsuit in the nation challenging the 2,409-page healthcare bill, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, will present oral argument before Judge Moon tomorrow, October 22, in Lynchburg, Virginia, at 1101 Court Street, at or before 10:00 a.m. 

The Liberty Counsel brief states that the plaintiffs’ claims are ripe for review, because the law’s unprecedented intrusion into plaintiffs’ private lives has an immediate effect on their constitutional rights. The government attempted to argue that the law is valid by creating an expansive definition of “interstate commerce” to include regulation of decisions not to buy health insurance. This socialist mentality would allow Congress to nationalize anything on the assumption that all must pay in order to make the object of regulation affordable to all. The power of the federal government to regulate has limits. This healthcare law is far beyond those limits.

Mathew Staver will argue this case tomorrow and there are some ways you can help. Please pray for him in the courtroom tomorrow. Pray that God will give him the right words to speak and for the judge to be sympathetic to our case. Also, we have more than 150,000 people who have signed our petition against "Obamacare." We're hoping to get even thousands more to sign our "Statement of Support." Would you be willing to join us by adding your name?
