Fed Judge Declares ObamaCare's Funding Unconstitutional in Virginia

The funding, of course, comes from the "individual mandate" requiring U.S. citizens to buy into ObamaCare.

The judge concluded that:
"It is not the effect on individuals that is presently at issue -- it is the authority of Congress to compel anyone to purchase health insurance."
Greta Van Susteren read Judge Henry Hudson's decision and explains it:



  1. I have red the decision, and it is fascinating the mental hurdles one would have to jump through to decide for Obamacare.

    The most interesting part was Sibelius' contention that the penalty for not buying insurance was actually a "tax", and that the two words are interchangeable as far as the court is concerned. The judge basically calls her a moron. He points out that the Senate in three different bills prior to the final bill, the Senate referred to the "tax" as a tax, but int he final version, they changed the wording to "penalty". Basically the judge states the obvious, "Just because you want it to be something else doesn't make it so".

    Obvious to you, but not to most Lefties.

    Sibelius finally has run into someone who is not fluent in the Lefties' common language, Doublespeak.

    I can't wait to read this decision. The more Americans who do, the more difficult it will be for the Supremes to palm off ObamaCare as Constitutional.
