We the People taking on ObamaCare

Thursday, February 17, 2011

The Justice Foundation has filed a petition in Travis County requesting a permanent injunction to stop the State of Texas from spending tax dollars on the implementation of ObamaCare in the State of Texas.

Allan Parker, president of the Justice Foundation, is representing me individually and Grassroots America - We the People as Plaintiffs in the case. This is a bold move. It is a necessary move.

While we appreciate the bold public stands Governor Rick Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott have taken to fight ObamaCare, we believe "the People" must go further while we wait for the now-declared unconstitutional Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to make its way to the Supreme Court of the United States. We do not want the State of Texas to spend tax dollars setting up the infrastructure for implementation of ObamaCare. While we hope some of the bills currently filed in the TX legislature to fight ObamaCare at the state level will prevail, given the game-playing and political dealing that goes on in Austin, we simply cannot depend on that legislation to stop ObamaCare in Texas. We simply cannot wait for our elected officials to do the right thing.

Here are two sources of information that give us great concern:

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott: Feds playing delay game on ObamaCare ruling

AG says anti-ObamaCare ruling likely to be heard by U.S. Supreme Court

We hope our action will protect the people of Texas. We hope our action will speed the process to get the case to SCOTUS. Frankly, the State Legislature needs to stay out of the Rainy Day Fund. Should -- God forbid -- SCOTUS not rule ObamaCare unconstitutional and should the Congress fail in completely defunding ObamaCare, that is when it will truly be raining in Texas and the Rainy Day Fund can be used while we wait to elect a new President and Congress that will get the job done.

Attached find our news release for today and a Fact Sheet that will more clearly set forth our position. I humbly ask for your support and your earnest prayers that Liberty will prevail. Please circulate this information should you deem it worthwhile.

Advancing Freedom,

JoAnn Fleming, Executive Director (volunteer)

Neil Election Contest goes to the House Committee

Friday, February 11, 2011

February 11, 2011 5:08 PM

Rep. Will Hartnett (R-Dallas) says out of county voters and counting 4
unopened ballots cut into Howard's margin; adds that he's seen no
evidence of voter fraud or substantial errors.

UPDATED: We received late this afternoon the response from GOP
challenger Dan Neil's camp. Attorney Joe Nixon says that he looks
forward to taking his case to the HD 48 special committee. We reprint
his statement in its entirety below:

"We have received the Master’s recommendation, and we are in the
process of reviewing it. We have completed step one of this process,
and we intend to take our case to the committee. We believe the
evidence presented in recent hearings is worthy of a different
finding, and we are confident the committee will agree. This is an
excellent ruling to take to the committee. It shows that there are a
number of unresolved issues that need to be decided before anyone can
be declared the winner of this election."


Neil Election Contest

Tuesday, February 8, 2011


The Dan Neil campaign issued the following statement last night:

Monday was the last day of our hearing before the special master in our election contest in House District 48. Currently, we are down by 3 votes with a margin of error of 4 illegal voters. We also have voters who have lived outside the district for 2 years or more who voted in this election and voted for Donna Howard, while their voter registration was on suspense.

At this point, it is clear that we do not know who the winner of this election is. The only possible remedy is a new election.

The next step in the process is that Master Hartnett will report his findings to the committee by Friday. We will see what the Master reports and we will make a determination about our next step at that time. We intend to fight for this seat until the end.

Thank you for all your prayers and support.
