Texas businessman and 2016 American Citizen Party presidential candidate Bob McNeil supports 40 House Republicans who have filed a friend of the court legal challenge to rescind the Affordable Care Act on constitutional grounds. Concurring with this effort, McNeil states, “The entire structure of Obamacare and, specifically, how it was passed into law is utterly unconstitutional.”
The legal challenge in the House supports Sissel vs. United States Department of Health and Human Services, a case filed in federal court in 2010 on behalf of Iraq war veteran and Iowa business owner Matt Sissel; a case to be heard by a federal appeals court in 2014.
The case is based on the Origination Clause of the US Constitution which states, All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other bills.
Bob McNeil notes that the Constitution is clear. The Affordable Care Act Mandate has been ruled as a tax, and the Constitution says, in clear and unambiguous language, that only the House of Representatives is authorized to initiate taxes on the Federal level. This means, McNeil observes, that the Affordable Care Act, in order to be constitutional, would have to be resubmitted to the House of Representatives for passage as a tax.
McNeil is calling on President Barack Obama to adhere to the lawful function of his office by withdrawing the present law and asking the House to reconsider it as a tax bill. By this means, notes McNeil, the constitutional system is preserved and a constitutional crisis is avoided.

BIOGRAPHY IN A LETTER TO AMERICA:
My name is Bob McNeil, founder of the American Citizen Party, and candidate for President of the United States in 2016.
I describe myself as “an ordinary man living an extraordinary life”.
- A professional business consultant with an accounting degree and 35 years of experience auditing multi-billion dollar corporations, here in the United States, and in a number of countries around the world.
- A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps from 1968 through 1974.
- A father of two daughters.
- A grandfather of three beautiful children.
- A trusted friend to many.
I have been disillusioned with our two-party political system for quite a while now, but, rather than complain about it, I decided to do something about it.
So, using a lifetime of experience, plus the analytical skills I have acquired during my career as a professional auditor, I set out to write a plan that would spark the “21st Century American Revolution”.
Knowing the dangers of that exercise from the people in power, and to ensure its success, I established the following criteria for the plan:
- It must be constitutional;
- It must be peaceful;
- It must transcend race, religion, age, gender, political affiliation, economic status, and all other things that the politicians and the media use to divide us as a nation, and;
- It must restore liberty and prosperity to ALL American citizens.
In 2008, after one year of research and writing, I emerged with the plan. I formed the American Citizen Party in 2009 to serve as the platform from which to implement it, and have talked to millions of Americans about it in person, on the radio and in my blogs since then.
Now, it is time to go nationwide in order to build momentum for the 2014 election and my 2016 Presidential run.
If you yearn for liberty and prosperity like you’ve never before experienced, this is the political party you’ve been searching for.
Get involved. Sign up with your email address to receive my blogs. Contribute money to further the cause of liberty for yourself, your children, and future generations of Americans.
Together, we can, and we will, take back our country and restore it to its greatness.
The only way my plan will fail is if you continue to vote Democrats and Republicans into office, or worse, if you do nothing.
Take charge of your future. If you don’t, someone else will.
