Statement by ACU Chairman Al Cardenas on Today’s Supreme Court Decision

June 27, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Al Cardenas today released the following statement.

“Today’s Supreme Court decision on the health care bill was a win for the liberals and a loss for American taxpayers. The Supreme Court called this mandatory insurance a tax, so let’s be clear —  it’s one of the largest tax increases in our country’s history. We have only one course available to prevent this disastrous mandate from taking place: big wins in November in Congress and the White House.

Conservatives can no longer depend on the Supreme Court to do our work for us, so we need a president and Congress who will repeal this law in the first 100 days of 2013. Indeed, this will be our most significant rallying cry for a November victory. At the end of the day the Supreme Court clarified the mission and made its success that much more important.”

The American Conservative Union is America’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization and was founded in 1964. The ACU has hosted CPAC in the Nation’s Capital since 1973.
