U.S. Health-Care Law Requirement Thrown Out by Judge
by Tom Schoenberg & Margaret Cronin Fisk - December 13th, 2010 - Bloomberg News
The Obama administration’s requirement that most citizens maintain minimum health coverage as part of a broad overhaul of the industry is unconstitutional a federal judge ruled, striking down the linchpin of the plan.
U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson in Richmond, Virginia, today ruled that the requirement in President Barack Obama’s health-care legislation goes beyond Congress’s powers to regulate interstate commerce.
“We are disappointed in today’s ruling but continue to believe -- as other federal courts in Virginia and Michigan have found -- that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional,” Justice Department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler said in a statement. The government is “confident that we will ultimately prevail,” she said.
The reality is, this law proves there is no justice in America. The rule of law has become a farce. Each judge rules as they want based on their political ideology. There is no legal basis for many of the rulings since the Constitution means nothing to liberal judges. Justice also means nothing to these liberal judges. Judicial power is the only force behind their lust for a judicial oligarchy that gives all power to judges to rule as they wish.
Any rational person must see that in a nation ruled by a judicial oligarchy, freedom does not exist.
