    We all know this is going to the SCOTUS, but here is another small victory for Obama.

    No big deal. I'm sure the Democrats and Republicans will work together to put together a better bill before that happens.

    Although a bad precedent to fine Americans if they do not purchase healthcare insurance, it is by no means illegal to do so. The U.S. Supreme Court will confirm this provision of the Healthcare Reform Law created by Congress and signed by our President:cool:

    nothing to do with the merits of the case. This was about standing.

    How is that a 'victory' for the anointed one?

    Actually, it is. The case was struck down. I call that a victory. What do you call it when a judge rules in your favor?

    Too bad for you that the opinions of these justices carry more weight than yours.

    Denying a state standing to challenge the law makes it more difficult to challenge it, which certainly helps Obama. More interesting than the Virginia case was the Liberty University case, announced at the same time. There, the justices through out the case based on a ruling that the individual mandate was a tax, the first time an Appeals court did so. Ultimately of course the Supreme Court will make a ruling, but this is a positive sign for the health care law.
