Nobamacare - Federal Judge Rules Healthcare Bill Unconstitutional

Dec 13, 2010, 17:37 ET from Winning Strategies

HOUSTON, Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Breaking News - Winning Strategies - reports that a U.S. judge in Virginia Monday invalidated a key part of the landmark healthcare law that requires individuals to buy health insurance, the first major setback for President Barack Obama on an issue virtually certain to be decided by the Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson agreed with arguments by the state of Virginia that Congress exceeded its authority by requiring that individuals buy health insurance or face a fine.  "The Minimum Essential Coverage Provision is neither within the letter nor the spirit of the Constitution," Hudson wrote in a 42-page decision. However, Judge Hudson declined to invalidate the entire healthcare law, a small victory for the Obama administration.

Tim Connolly, Executive Editor of Winning Strategies, said, "This decision sets up a new term confrontation between the President, the new Republican majority in the House, and a deeply split Senate that will most likely only be settled by the Supreme Court in Washington, DC. The Essential Coverage provision invalidation guts the entire bill, and US citizens deserve an early answer from the Supreme Court on this critical question."  We will discuss this question and others on Tim Connolly's Winning Strategies Friday, December 17, 2010 on CBS Radio Talk 650, Houston, TX and nationwide on the CRN Digital Talk Radio Network.
