In light of the Supreme Court’s recent activist ruling in King v. Burwell, AMAC is supporting a new bill that seeks to hold Supreme Court Justices accountable to the laws they uphold – namely ObamaCare. Introduced by Representative Brian Babin (R-TX), the “SCOTUScare Act” would require Supreme Court Justices and their staffs to enroll in ObamaCare’s health exchanges just like millions of other Americans. AMAC firmly believes that no government leader or federal employee is above the law or should be specially exempted from ObamaCare. Like many Americans, AMAC feels that the “SCOTUScare Act” is an important step in making sure that Washington does not abuse its authority.

Dear Representative Babin,
On behalf of the 1.3 million members of AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens, I am writing to extend our strong support for your bill, the “SCOTUScare Act.” This timely, responsible piece of legislation would ensure that Supreme Court Justices receive no special exemption from the laws they uphold – namely, the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” known more commonly as “ObamaCare.”
AMAC believes that the “SCOTUScare Act” is critical to ensuring that no individual – including America’s nine Supreme Court Justices – is permitted to live above the law. This bill would require these Justices and their staffs to be enrolled in ObamaCare’s health care exchange, just like millions of other Americans. All government officials and federal employees should be willing to fully submit to the laws they create, enforce, and uphold.
In light of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in King v. Burwell, AMAC is deeply concerned by the activist role the Court has assumed. This legislation is a necessary step in making sure that Washington does not continue to abuse its authority or unfairly benefit from special exemptions. As an unelected and unaccountable branch of government, it is important that Justices of the Supreme Court abide by the letter of law just as is required of the American people. Thanks to your leadership and willingness to stand on principle, AMAC is pleased to support the “SCOTUScare Act.”
President and Founder of AMAC
