Judge Rules Obamacare Unconstitutional

Judge Roger VinsonFlorida US district judge, Judge Roger Vinson ruled on Monday that the entire Obamacare was unconstitutional because it violates the Commerce Clause. At this point, it is almost certain that it will be placed before the Supreme Court. At which time, it would likely be ruled unconstitutional as well putting a hault to Obamacare.

In Vinson’s words (in a FoxNews report):

“I must reluctantly conclude that Congress exceeded the bounds of its authority in passing the act with the individual mandate. That is not to say, of course, that Congress is without power to address the problems and inequities in our health care system. The health care market is more than one-sixth of the national economy, and without doubt Congress has the power to reform and regulate this market. That has not been disputed in this case. The principal dispute has been about how Congress chose to exercise that power here,” Vinson wrote.

“While the individual mandate was clearly ‘necessary and essential’ to the act as drafted, it is not ‘necessary and essential’ to health care reform in general,” he continued. “Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire act must be declared void.”
