Florida Represenative Connie Mack tells Jacksonville's Morning News that the Supreme Court's soon-to-be-announced ruling on President Obama's health care law will be big in his race against Senator Bill Nelson.
"He has supported Barack Obama ninety-eight percent of the time," Mack said. "That's astonishing frankly."
Mack says the people of Florida are upset that Sen. Nelson has constantly supported President Obama, adding that he was one of the Senators who tried to get a "special deal" in the health care law.
"In America and in Florida, people aren't looking for special deals. They're looking for solutions to problems. Senator Nelson has been on the wrong side of that issue."
On the health care law itself, Mack says it's unconstiutional "and frankly un-American to have the federal government dictate and force people to buy something they don't want, need or deserve."
"Creating new bureaucracies and having to hire IRS agents by the multiples is not the solution. And then something that forces people to buy something is just unconstitutional."
If the court rules against the Affordable Health care for America Act, Mack believes Republicans will be vindicated because people will realize they were right in suggesting that it needs to be repealed.
Rep. Mack believes Republicans have put forth solutions of their own that will help people get insurance if they need it.
"Being able to purchase insurance across state lines is a good thing," he said. " Expanding health savings accounts is a good thing."
He says association health plans are a good thing because it allows small businesses in the state of Florida to pool their buying power together.
The Supreme Court of the United States could rule on the health care law as early as 10 a.m. Monday morning.
