Judge Rules Health Care Law Unconstitutional

Though I have yet to fully read the decision of the court, I can comment on what is being reported from that decision and how this decision came to be. These are just a couple of quotes from the decision handed down earlier today:

"Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire act must be declared void," 

"This has been a difficult decision to reach and I am aware that it will have indeterminable implications."


This is a huge victory in the whole scheme of things, but it is not the end of the fight. Some judges out there still do respect the people and their right to choose to buy or not to buy a product. This court today found that no one in our government has the power to make us buy something we do not want to buy, and the government will have to challenge the ruling to try to get one in their favor. This could be headed straight for the Supreme Court, but we will see what the government wants to do in that regard. They do have the option of asking the Supreme Court to take this case, knowing that inevitably it will end up in their lap anyway. We do not know if this will happen, but will keep a close eye on it. 

I know this ruling will get the left all fired up, and I am sure the President will have something to say about this. I hope he looks deep into himself and finds a place where he understands what the American people are talking about. The federal government cannot make someone buy something they do not want to buy, and that is it! If the President see's it otherwise, he should have argued that this was a tax, instead of arguing there would be no new taxes. Since he did that, he set himself up for this defeat today, and in my opinion a defeat at the Supreme Court very soon.
