Missouri voices not being represented
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Chillicothe, Missouri) – March 26, 2012 – Today marks the beginning of the oral arguments in the Supreme Court regarding the constitutionality of the PPACA (Obamacare). Although Missourians overwhelmingly supported challenging Obamacare’s individual mandate, none of their voices are being represented today.
“It’s a bitter-sweet day for most Missourians” said Adam Lee Warren, rural prosecutor and candidate for Attorney General. “We were first to hold a public referendum to reject the encroachment into our freedom by the federal government, and that cause is being argued in the highest court of our land, but our voice isn’t receiving any representation.” “What’s worse is that our current Attorney General is pretending that Missourians are getting some protection from his office.”
“What the media has characterized as a “middle of the road approach” is nothing more than a smokescreen meant to confuse the electorate” said Warren. “Of the three constitutional challenges which should be raised against Obamacare, Kris Koster’s amicus brief addressed only the individual mandate as “probably” unconstitutional, but leaves the door open for the court to expand the powers and scope of the federal commerce clause.”
“The idea of an amicus brief to adequately represent the citizens of Missouri is an insult in itself” declared Adam Warren. “There are 26 States as parties of record who will have party briefs and oral arguments to be considered. There are already 136 separate amicus briefs which stack up to about 2 feet of paper” Warren continued. “Filing an amicus brief in this action is the equivalent of spitting in the ocean and telling everyone you made it wet.”
Warren commented that this disingenuous political behavior motivated him to join the Attorney General race.
