Federal Judge Rules ObamaCare is ALL Unconstitutional (PDF of Judge Ruling)

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi News Release:

U.S. District Court Judge Finds the Federal Health Care Law Unconstitutional
TALLAHASSEE, FL – Attorney General Pam Bondi today announced that Florida, along with 25 other states and the National Federation of Independent Business, prevailed in federal court where Judge Roger Vinson struck down the federal health care law as unconstitutional. The Attorney General’s Office filed the lawsuit in response to President Obama signing the Health Care Reform Bill into law last March.

“Today’s ruling by Judge Vinson is an important victory for every person who believes in the freedoms granted to us by our Constitution,” said Attorney General Bondi. “This proves that the federal government requiring Americans to purchase health insurance is in fact unconstitutional. In addition, the bipartisan effort from Attorneys General across the country shows the federal government that we will not back down from protecting the constitutional rights of our citizens.”

The lawsuit, filed last March, alleged the new law infringed upon the constitutional rights of Floridians and residents of the other states by mandating all citizens and legal residents have qualifying health care coverage or pay a penalty. The law would also coerce citizens into an expansive Medicaid program which would result in enormous costs to taxpayers.

“NFIB is extremely pleased with Judge Vinson’s decision,” said Bill Herrle, executive director of NFIB/Florida. “NFIB joined this case to protect the rights of small-business owners to own, operate, and grow their businesses free from unconstitutional government intervention. The individual mandate gives the federal government entirely too much power. Small business owners are delighted Judge Vinson agreed with NFIB and Attorney General Bondi on this critical issue.”

Unfortunately that’s not the end…the Left will surely take this fight to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Michelle Malkin has more.
