From USA Today :
"The linchpin provision of the landmark health care law extending insurance to 32 million Americans was struck down by a federal judge in Virginia on Monday, dealing the first major blow to President Obama's most far-reaching legislative achievement."
ObamaCare Now on The Ropes - from NRO:
"The decision of Judge Henry Hudson in Virginia v. Sebelius is no bird of passage that will easily be pushed aside as the case winds its way up to its inevitable disposition in the United States Supreme Court. The United States gave the case its best shot, and it is not likely that it will come up with a new set of arguments that will strengthen its hand in subsequent litigation."
"The key successful move for Virginia was that it found a way to sidestep the well-known 1942 decision of the Supreme Court in Wickard v. Filburn, which held in effect that the power to regulate commerce among the several states extended to decisions of farmers to feed their own grain to their own cows. Wickard does not pass the laugh test if the issue is whether it bears any fidelity to the original constitutional design. It was put into place for the rather ignoble purpose of making sure that the federally sponsored cartel arrangements for agriculture could be properly administered." (Full story here)
For as many stories, articles and posts written about the passage of ObamaCare, there seems to have been just as many citing this legislation as the Death Knell of the potential 2012 Romney for President campaign.
Question: Does this ruling and the potential dismantling of ObamaCare via the courts, help/hinder or have no effect on Romney's plans?
