    The insurance-buying mandate in President Barack Obama’s health-care reform legislation is unconstitutional, a federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled.

    U.S. District Judge Christopher C. Conner in Harrisburg today said Congress exceeded its powers under the federal constitution when it included in the act Obama signed into law last year a provision requiring almost all Americans to have medical insurance starting in 2014.

    “The federal government,” Conner said, “is one of limited enumerated powers, and Congress’s efforts to remedy the ailing health care and health insurance markets must fit squarely within the boundaries of those powers.”

    If you listen to Shelia Jackson Lee of the 4th ward in Houston give one of her speeches, her supporters don't have to worry she and Obama will take care of everything. They even built a project housing with granite counters and two car garages all with rent subsidy. Man I would like to have that to but Ted Poe, my congressman knows that I have a job.
