February 14, 2012, Angel McClary Raich, Docs4PatientCare, Benjamin Rush Society, Pacific Research Institute, and Galen Institute in filing an Amicus Curiae Brief in the United States Supreme Court in the Obama Care Case entitled Department of Health & Human Services, et al., Petitioners v. Florida, et al., Respondents.  Our amicus brief was filed in support of Florida, et. al.!

The American People need quality health care without a mandate!

We would like to stop that mandate, which would limit patient care! Patient's should not have to choose between purchasing food for their low-income families or purchasing their monthly health insurance, and other medical bills! 

If the Department of Health & Human Services wins this case everyone "will be" mandated to purchase health care and companies will be forced to do the same, said Angel Raich.  My biggest concern is that if the federal government and/or the governmental agencies can mandate the American people to purchase health care and tax them if they fail to do so; the federal government can then mandate the American people to purchase any product or any brand of product, including foods, furniture, houses, cars, virtually anything!  Including mandating us to use governmental chosen corporations and companies in all aspects of life, and tax us if we don't!  What will the federal government do if the American People refuse to pay the tax or just are unable to pay the tax?  Will they send them to jail?  

Angel McClary Raich’s United States Supreme Court Case No. 03-1454: Gonzales v. Raich 2004-05 is at the heart of the legal debate and is heavy used by all parties in Department of Health & Human Services, et al., Petitioners v. Florida, et al., Respondents!

Amicus Curiae Docs4PatientCare is a non-profit 501(c)(6) membership organization of concerned physicians committed to the establishment of a health care system that preserves the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship, promotes quality of care, supports affordable access to all Americans, and protects patients’ freedom of choice. It has an interest in this case because the individual mandate contradicts these fundamental principles and sets a dangerous precedent regarding the inappropriate use of federal power to dictate the choices of Americans.

Amicus Curiae Angel McClary Raich was the lead respondent in one of this Court’s important recent Commerce Clause cases, Gonzales v. Raich, 545 U.S. 1 (2005).  She suffers from a terminal brain tumor and the related effects of radiation treatment. She thus brings to this case the perspective of both a patient in our healthcare system and a litigant with a personal understanding of the implications of an expansive construction of the Commerce Clause on individual freedom. Her interest in this case stems from both her belief that the individual mandate will worsen, rather than improve, the problems in our healthcare system, and from her concern that the government’s expansive views of the Commerce and Necessary and Proper Clauses will lead to the limitless federal power against which she warned in her own case before this Court.

Amicus Curiae Benjamin Rush Society is a membership organization that includes medical students, residents, fellows, and doctors across the political spectrum — as well as members of the general public — who believe that the profession of medicine calls its practitioners to serve their patients, rather than the government. The Society believes that the physician-patient relationship is a voluntary and mutually beneficial one. Both parties have a right to enter this relationship freely. The proper role of government is to protect this freedom, not to diminish it. The Society is part of the Pacific Research Institute. The Society is interested in this case because the individual mandate undermines such freedom by compelling some individuals to purchase health insurance not- withstanding their free choice to the contrary.

Amicus Curiae Pacific Research Institute is a non-profit non- partisan 501(c)(3) organization that champions freedom, opportunity, and personal responsibility by advancing free-market policy solutions to the issues that impact the daily lives of all Americans. It demonstrates how free interaction among consumers, businesses, and voluntary associations is more effective than government action at providing the important results we all seek—good schools, quality health care, a clean environment, and economic growth. Founded in 1979 and based in San Francisco, PRI is supported by private contributions. Its activities include publications, public events, media commentary, invited legislative testimony, and community outreach.

Amicus Curiae Galen Institute is a non-profit, Section 501(c)(3) public policy research organization devoted to advancing ideas and policies that would create a vibrant, patient-centered health sector. It promotes public debate and education about proposals that support individual freedom, consumer choice, competition, and innovation in the health sector. It focuses on individual responsibility and control over health care and health insurance, lower costs through competition, and a reliable safety net for vulnerable populations. Galen’s policies promote continued medical innovation, advances in personalized medicine, and expanded access to health care and coverage in the 21st century Information Age economy.

None of the above amici is publicly traded or has any parent corporations, other than as noted, and no publicly traded corporation owns 10% or more or any of the above amici.

Docs4PatientCare, Benjamin Rush Society, Pacific Research Institute, Galen Institute, and Angel McClary Raich Amicus Curiae Brief in the United States Supreme Court


Since 2005 when Gonzales v. Raich was in the United States Supreme Court the Raich case has been at the heart of many legal issues from the 2011 Medical Cannabis Federal Crackdowns, Forfeitures, and Federal Court Cases to the Obama Health Care Legal Debate surrounding the Mandate.  

“If they federal government can mandate us to buy health insurance they can mandate us to buy any product, any time, and tax us if we don’t.  The American People need quality health care even for those of us whom are sick, disabled, and dying but don’t be fooled by the sugar pill of health care to hide the nasty tasting pill of the mandate!” said Angel Raich
