Georgia Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) has responded to the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama's landmark healthcare law:
"The decision by the United States Supreme Court stands contrary to the very principles of freedom on which our nation was founded. The idea that a Federal Government could wield this much power and control over sovereign citizens is surely not an idea contemplated by our forefathers.
The pathway towards a return to liberty involves electing conservatives in every office in the land. This should be followed by a simultaneous repeal of Obamacare in Congress and every constitutional roadblock the individual states can muster.
Georgia maintains the right to appropriate state resources in the manner best suited for our citizens. We should ensure that no Georgia tax dollar is spent implementing this freedom destructing law.
