Texas Doctor Hopes to Overturn Obamacare… Sues Federal Government

A Texas physician has sued the federal government over Obamacare, hoping that new constitutional challenges will bring the beleaguered healthcare law back before the U.S. Supreme Court — and this time the high court will overturn it.

“With Obamacare, the federal government was thinking that it would come in and straighten out the medical problems of the country by imposing its will upon the people,” Steven Hotze, an allergist and immunologist in the Houston area, told Newsmax on Thursday in an exclusive interview. “They are mandating everyone to buy insurance, as if insurance provides healthcare.

“Doctors provide healthcare, not insurance companies,” he said.

Hotze and his company, Braidwood Management Inc., filed the lawsuit on May 7 in Federal District Court in Houston. The legal action names as defendants Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew.

Hotze’s case is likely to go before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.

“We’re going to the Fifth Circuit. That’s the most conservative circuit in the country. We ought to be able to win two out of three on the panel,” he said. “Then, it goes to the Supreme Court — and you only need one person on the Supreme Court to side with you,” he said, referring to Justice John Roberts, the key swing vote.

    Doctors who believe in treating their patients and providing “healthcare” should have their own insurance operations in each of their offices, or a consortium where all doctors are involved for the payments. This way, the giant corporations won’t be telling us what can and what can’t be covered. And, this way, doctors won’t have to charge the insurance companies 4-10X what the actual cost of treatment is, just to get paid the correct amounts due them.

    Obamacare is nothing more than a huge organized crime RACKETEERING rip-off SCAM designed to plunder and control the American people. It was written and passed into “law” by the Satanic Illuminati’s representatives in congress and the presidency.
