Obama Health-Care Reform Act Ruled Unconstitutional

U.S. President Barack Obama lost the second of four court challenges to his health-care law as a federal judge in Florida ruled that the measure went beyond the power of Congress to regulate commerce.

U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson in Pensacola declared the entire law invalid today in a 78-page opinion in a suit brought by 26 states. He said a provision requiring Americans over 18 to obtain insurance coverage violated the U.S Constitution. The U.S. Justice Department said it will appeal.

If this goes fast track to the supreme court, It will take the health care bebate out of the 2012 race.

Romney supporters: I am glad you dislike MassCare on the Federal level and I am glad that you, MIGHT, dislike mandates on the Federal level but I wouldn't be too happy because this issue is a double edged sword for Romney in the upcoming Presidential elections. He will not be able to hide behind state's rights, especially when "police powers" were used to pass MassCare.

This would allow them to dictate what policies would look like and how doctors would manage their patients covered by exchange-provided insurance.
