North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem is leading the fight against Obamacare for North Dakotans, joining 20 other states in asking the courts to declare this disastrous law unconstitutional.
Republicans and Democrats agree that preexisting conditions need to be covered. Unfortunately, Democrats in North Dakota have decided to double down on this law, demanding the Attorney General drop the lawsuit just because they themselves support the law. Our Attorney General Stenehjem quickly fired back, reminding them he took an oath “to defend the Constitution of the United States and this statute is unconstitutional.”
Looking beyond its unconstitutionality, Obamacare has been a disaster for North Dakota. As Attorney General Stenehjem notes, “Obamacare has brought fewer options and at a much higher price, with many North Dakotans being priced out of the market.”
“Democrats see Obamacare as an election issue they can exploit,” said North Dakota Republican Party spokesman Jake Wilkins. “As the liberal left continues to play politics by promoting this harmful legislation, Republicans will focus on pushing healthcare solutions for North Dakotans that will lower premiums, expand available options, and protect those with preexisting conditions.”
