    Decision of the court.

    The first 24 pages deal with jurisdictional issues that don't really address the merits of the HC bill. If you want to skip over that and get to the meat and potatoes, go directly to page 25. It's over 100 pages in total, including one concurring opinion and dissenting opinion (over jurisdiction to hear the case, based on a federal statute that would require a plaintiff to wait until after the law takes full effect). I've pulled out some key portions here.

    I've been of the same position that's expressed here. The law is constitutional, even if bad. I hope that public attention will finally start turning toward the need to find better solutions than what Obama's HC bill offer, instead of the gripes over constitutional authority. Oh, and before someone babbles about supposed activist judges, He's a conservative appointed by Bush.
