Steven F. Hotze, M.D. has been credited with forcing the federal government to postpone employer mandates because of his federal lawsuit against Obamacare. Hotze and his company, Braidwood Management Inc., filed the lawsuit on May 7 in Federal District Court in Houston. The legal action names as defendants Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew.
Hotze’s case is likely to go before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
“We’re going to the Fifth Circuit. That’s the most conservative circuit in the country. We ought to be able to win two out of three on the panel,” he said. “Then, it goes to the Supreme Court — and you only need one person on the Supreme Court to side with you,” he said, referring to Justice John Roberts, the key swing vote.
Active in Texas GOP politics since 1976, Hotze is the CEO of Hotze Enterprises and the chairman and founder of Conservative Republicans of Texas, the state’s second-largest GOP super PAC.
