Lawmakers--both old and new--just got their next assignment: repeal ObamaCare, says Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).  Representing the Washington-based constitutional law firm, which focuses on preserving religious liberties, he says voters sent a powerful message to the Obama administration on Nov. 2.   The results of the midterm elections, he says, indicate Americans have rejected the president's agenda and signaled a need to repeal the health care law. Sekulow outlines his thoughts below.

"The outcome of this election underscores the fact that most Americans don't believe this country is on the right track and want a change from President Obama's failed policies of the past two years. In addition to jobs and taxes, voters sent a powerful message about ObamaCare, the government-run, pro-abortion health care law forced on the American people.

"This election was fueled by voters who were concerned less about party labels and more about troubled policies.  Most Americans have said they want ObamaCare repealed.  And, now with a sweeping change in Congress, it's time to do just that.  The fact is with the outcome of this election--along with growing opposition to ObamaCare--this is the perfect time to act legislatively and repeal the health care law.

"We have started a nationwide petition campaign to demand that the new Congress repeal ObamaCare.  We expect to hear from thousands of constitutional conservatives and others who certainly want health care reform--but believe that ObamaCare is not the reform that America needs or deserves."

In addition to legislative efforts, the ACLJ has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Washington, D.C., on behalf of five taxpayers challenging the constitutionality of the federal health care law.

In support of other legal challenges to ObamaCare, the ACLJ has filed an amicus brief in Virginia's legal challenge of the health care law, representing 28 members of Congress and more than 70,000 Americans.  The ACLJ will soon file an amicus brief supporting Florida's legal challenge.

Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice focuses on constitutional law and is based in Washington, D.C.
