Houston Doctor Challenges Obamacare In Court

Houston Doctor Challenges Obamacare In Court

Many of you don’t like Obamacare. It’s been challenged unsuccessfully in court. One Houston area physician is looking for a rematch.

Steven Hotze filed a lawsuit against the government, and told Matt Patrick the reason he filed suit comes down to simple dollars and cents.

“Our insurance agents have told us we’re going to have a dramatic increase in our premiums. They may double. They can’t tell us how big the increases are going to be,” Hotze said.

Hotze says the law would kill small businesses.

“I talked with a number of other business owners who say they can’t afford it. They don’t make enough profits. They will not be able to run their business profitably. They are going to have to drop all the insurance they have on their employees,” Hotze explained.

Hotze thinks his suit has a chance because Obamacare originated in the Senate.

“All revenue raising bills have to begin in the House. As it turns out the revenue raising part of this bill began in the Senate,” Hotze explained.

Hotze's goal when it's all said and done?

“We are asking the judge in federal court in Houston not to allow Obamacare to take place in Texas,” Hotze stated.

Hotze says if he has to, he'll take the suit all the way back to Washington for a second shot at the Supreme Court.
