Criminal: All Things Obama

So the Universal Healthcare Decree was rejected as unconstitutional the moment a constitutional-thinking judge looked at it. The case was brought by 26 of the 57 states - a near majority. Bipartisan, no less.

We wonder how the other 31 states feel. Smart, because they too knew it was unconstitutional and they chose to let others carry their water? Or stupid, for passing on such a no-brainer?

For those who wish to read about this, we suggest WSJ's Janet Adamy: Judge Rejects Health Law.

A federal judge ruled that Congress violated the Constitution by requiring Americans to buy insurance as part of the health overhaul passed last year, and said the entire law "must be declared void."

With his ruling, U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson set up a clash over whether the Obama administration still has the authority to carry out the law designed to expand insurance to 32 million Americans.

A Florida federal judge on Monday ruled that a key plank of the health overhaul passed last March violates the Constitution, in a decision that could threaten the Obama administration's ability to implement the law.

David Rivkin, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said the ruling meant the 26 states challenging the law must halt implementation of pieces that apply to states and certain small businesses represented by plaintiffs.

But the Obama administration said it has no to plans to halt implementation of the law.

For those disgusted by a runaway liberal progressive communist Democrat Party who pushed this law on the American people much like Collectivism was pushed in 1918 in the USSR, a more intellectually relaxing update can be found in this video:
