The full text of the decision from Federal Judge Roger Vinson is not available yet, but according to reporters who’ve seen the decision, he’s ruled the entire Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act unconstitutional. The ruling favors of the 26 state attorney generals challenging the law. The judge ruled the individual mandate that requires all Americans to purchase health insurance invalid and, according to the decision, “because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void.”

As Joe Biden would say, “Now this is a big #uckin’ deal!

For you legal scholars here is the full text of Judge Vinson’s decision.

From the Washington Times:

In ruling against President Obama‘s health care law, federal Judge Roger Vinson used Mr. Obama‘s own

Judge Vinson

position from the 2008 campaign against him, when the then-Illinois senator argued there were other ways to achieve reform short of requiring every American to purchase insurance.

“I note that in 2008, then-Senator Obama supported a health care reform proposal that did not include an individual mandate because he was at that time strongly opposed to the idea, stating that, ‘If a mandate was the solution,  we can try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to buy a house,’” Judge Vinson wrote in a footnote toward the end of his 78-page ruling Monday.

Whether you choose to study the Bible, history, or Shakespeare, you eventually read about people so caught up in their own self-image, – in their own swirl, that it is their own words and deeds which become their stumbling blocks, and their eventual undoing.  This is beginning to happen to Obama.
 
Thank you Judge Vinson for taking up a career in the Law, for having the patience to become a judge, and for rendering such an impeccable decision.  If only we had a president cut from your kind of cloth.

  1. Perplexed Senior

    If the Obama administration does not request a stay they will be in contempt of the court decision. This will create an interseting scenario. If it were you or me we would be frog marched by the Federal Marshalls, charged with contempt and have to appear before the court. Obama feels that he is above the law and the media, for the most part, is giving him a pass. Let’s see what happens.

  2. Another Debate

    Legally speaking, you educationally challenged republicans will find yourself with another legal debate in the courts on compulsive auto insurance on the same basis as compulsive health care. Are you all just idiots serving the wealthy?

    You will pay the consequenses of having uninsured people. Have fun.

    Yes, to feed your paranoia, we’re just all idiots serving the wealthy.

    But tell us oh Wise One, where are all those 30,000,000 sick people dying in the streets that Obama and Pelosi told us about? Every time I drive past Emerson – I don’t see them . . .
