This week, Speaker Boehner recorded a brief web video outlining his thoughts on ObamaCare's unconstitutional individual mandate:

"Hello, I'm John Boehner.

"As you may have heard, this week the Supreme Court is considering the constitutionality of the individual mandate that forms the foundation of ObamaCare.

"When Democrats forced their government takeover of health care into law, it was the first time in American history that Congress had passed a law mandating that you buy something simply because you're breathing.

"If the federal government thinks it can get away with this kind of power grab, it will think it can do anything.

"That's why I'm supporting the lawsuit, brought by 27 states and the nation's leading small business organization, to overturn the law. My hope is that the Supreme Court will tell the Obama administration that it has no right to force Americans to buy health insurance plans it deems "acceptable."

"But regardless of how the court rules, know that we'll continue fighting on behalf of the American people who overwhelmingly want the law repealed.

"Last week the House held its 26th vote to fully repeal, defund or dismantle portions of ObamaCare, which is increasing costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire new workers. And our Republican House majority is not going to let up until this job-crushing law is fully repealed.

"So thanks for all you're doing to help us stand up for every American's right to make their own health care decisions. Keep up the fight and visit TeamBoehner.com to learn what you can do to help our Republican House majority scrap ObamaCare once and for all.

"Thanks for listening."
