Federal Judge: It’s Unconstitutional For Obamacare To Require Americans Buy Health Insurance

Judge Henry E. Hudson, a federal benchwarmer in Virginia appointed by George W. Bush, has struck down as unconstitutional the government’s requirement that all Americans purchase health care insurance, saying it violates the Commerce Clause of the Constitution by overstepping congressional authority. But he’s not forcing Obamacare to come to an immediate halt, which means the program can carry on during the appeals process. The decision echoes party line judgments, with Democratic-appointed judges ruling the health care bill constitutional.
