In a ruling on Obamacare that is just out, in the largest case yet, brought by 26 states, Judge Roger Vinson of the Federal District Court in Northern Florida , has declared the entire law unconstitutional:
“For the reasons stated, I must reluctantly conclude that Congress exceeded the bounds of its authority in passing the Act with the individual mandate.”
“Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void”
Most laws that congress writes have what is called a severability clause, that says, in effect, that should any individual part of the law be ruled unconstitutional, the rest of the law should remain in tact. I guess in their haste to shove this law down America’s throat in the dead of night, Democrats forgot to include such a clause, so the judge has tossed the entire law out.
Obviously, this is not the final word, and will eventually be decided by SCOTUS, but it is encouraging nonetheless.
