We now have two judges who say it's unconstitutional and two judges who say it's not.
I particularly like the "entire law must be declared void" part.
My understanding is when Congress writes a law they insert a clause saying if one part is found unconstitutional the rest of the law can be separated from the part. Here they neglected to do so. So the entire law must be struck down if one part is unconstitutional.
Didn't the left-nuts tell us all this suing in court was a waste of taxpayer money, that the law would never be found unconstitutional?
I have asked twice before, putting aside sevrability, how we would go forward minus the mandate, don't recall getting answer.
the money shot-
"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. At a time when there is virtually unanimous agreement that health care reform is needed in this country, it is hard to invalidate and strike down a statute titled "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act."
Fine, strike down the mandate. One step closer to single payer. Watch what you wish for.
0bamacare just got smacked...
Perhaps Harry & Nancy should have read it before passing it....
They had to pass it first before they could know what was in it.
Single payer was a loser. Like you.
None of those assholes have the balls to even say single payer.
