Breaking news on the lawsuit SD joined…..
A federal judge ruled Monday that the Obama administration’s health care overhaul is unconstitutional, siding with 26 states that sued to block it. U.S. District Judge Roger Vinsonaccepted without trial the states’ argument that the new law violates people’s rights by forcing them to buy health insurance by 2014 or face penalties.
And more to the point
The next stop is likely the U.S. Supreme Court. Two other federal judges have upheld the insurance requirement, but a federal judge inVirginia also ruled the insurance provision violates the Constitution.
In his ruling, Vinson went further than the Virginia judge and declared the entire health care law unconstitutional. (emphasis added)
In short….WE WON….but it’ll be short lived as the court process will continue. Don’t kid yourself tho — the Supremes will take notice that 27 states (including Virginia with the 26) have suits against the health care law…that’ll be pretty hard to ignore…..stay tuned.
