Ben Quayle Weekly Roundup: An Unprecedented Week

Weekly Roundup: June 25 - July 1

Last week was unprecedented. The Supreme Court dominated headlines after releasing decisions on the constitutionality of Obamacare and S.B. 1070, Arizona’s controversial immigration law.

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that it would uphold the main provision of S.B. 1070, also known as the Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act. This was a definite victory for the people of Arizona, but President Obama and Janet Napolitano, in disagreement with the Supreme Court, decided to take matters into their own hands and terminate the Arizona local and federal immigration enforcement task known as 287(g). As a result, Congressman Quayle wrote a letter to House Homeland Security Chairman Peter King requesting that he call Secretary Napolitano to testify before his Committee.

In what was perhaps one of the most heavily anticipated and scrutinized cases of the past decade, the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare and its individual mandate are constitutional. The Supreme Court ruled that the individual mandate is a tax, even though President Obama has been vehemently denying that it’s a tax for the past two years. In order to combat deceptive labeling by our leaders in the future, Congressman Quayle introduced a constitutional amendment to ensure that taxes passed by Congress are labeled as such during the legislative process.

This healthcare law and new tax burden will increase national debt, cripple small businesses, and kill jobs. Congressman Quayle will not rest until this law is repealed and replaced with real, market-based reforms.

On Thursday, the House of Representatives officially held Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal and civil contempt of Congress for his refusal to cooperate with inquiries into his role in Operation Fast and Furious. This was an important reproach of the Obama Administration and its tactics of denial and obfuscation.
