Obamacare Ruled Unconstitutional!

"In a 42-page opinion issued in Richmond, Va., Judge Hudson wrote that the law’s central requirement that most Americans obtain health insurance exceeds the regulatory authority granted to Congress under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. The insurance mandate is central to the law’s mission of covering more than 30 million uninsured because insurers argue that only by requiring healthy people to have policies can they afford to treat those with expensive chronic conditions."(link)

My Comment: Fantastic! Hooray! This is the third district court to rule on the constitutionality of the law. The other two district courts upheld the law. I would assume this means the law is headed to the Supreme Court. Unfortunately the judge did not block implementation of the law. I don't know if Obamacare will eventually be ruled unconstitutional or not but it should be. If the goverment can mandate that you pruchase a particular product then it can mandate anything.
