Judge strikes down key part of health care law Judge strikes down key part of health care law - Politics - More politics - msnbc.com Hudson declared that the law's central requirement for nearly all Americans to carry insurance is unconstitutional, well beyond Congress' power under the Constitution's Commerce Clause or other provisions. He denied requests to strike down the law in its entirety or block it from being implemented while his ruling is appealed by the administration. "An individual's personal decision to purchase or decline to purchase health insurance from a private provider is beyond the historical reach of the Commerce Clause," said Hudson, a 2002 appointee of President George W. Bush. Well, by God its about time for something like this! Next though, I want to see someone go against making people buy car insurance, though I dont think that will win simply because they will argue that the law only says you have to buy car insurance if you want to operate a vehicle, and that every American has a choice of not to operate a vehicle if they dont want to buy insurance. However, I do also want to see something about seatbelts n stuff, IMO that is unconstitutional too! But I have said since they passed that healthcare law: Just TRY to force me to buy health insurance. I dare ya!
