Did Democrats in DC “exceed its authority” with Obama's Health Care Bill?

A federal judge in Virginia has ruled parts of the sweeping health care reform effort led by President Obama to be unconstitutional. This is the first federal court to strike down the law, contradicting other recent rulings the law was permissible. The key issue of contention was the “individual mandate” requirement that most Americans purchase health insurance by 2014.

  • I absolutely agree. It will be appealed and eventually wind up in the Supreme Court.

  • Yes, I agree. I think that's been the contention from the very beginning for many of us, even before any lawsuits were filed against it.

  • Yes! I just can't figure out why it's okay for this admin. to pretend that the Constitution doesn't exist?

  • Probably because 'it's for our own good', agentwanda. LOL. They obviously know what's best for us, at least better than we do, right?

  • Sweet, what about the bill makes you such a big defender and cheerleader for ObamaCare? The nudging of socialist ideals in a federally mandated program? The 222 waivers that companies have had to receive? The way ObamaCare has dropped childrens hospitals from many perscription drugs? The polls and stats that continue to show a drop in physician care in the future? What?

  • Or is it the way states have screamed they can't afford any more federal mandates and pricey federal intervention to Medicaid?
