Student activists from around the country gathered in front of the Supreme Court on Thursday to protest ObamaCare, formally known as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”

The young conservative activists made it clear they opposed government interference in health care and specifically targeted the bill’s individual mandate.

“The federal government does not have the power to mandate that I purchase a specific product, like health insurance,” said Marjorie Jeffrey, a graduate student at Baylor University. “It certainly can’t force me to pay for someone else’s health care.”

Other students opposed the narrowly upheld law for other reasons.

“I don’t support Obamacare because I don’t support legislation that kills jobs,” said Christine Rouselle, who is a senior at Providence College.

@campusreform @BibChr 1. Sounds like the prof is oppressing this girl. 2. They're in Lakeland, they should call Todd Bentley to clear it up.

@campusreform Fire the professor - if not for his obviously unfair methods, then for his inability to grammatically construct a sentence.
