Henry E. Hudson, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, who previously sentenced the NFL Star quarterback to 23 months in prison for Federal violation of dog fighting/animal cruelty law, took a big bite out of Obamacare stating that “At its core, this dispute is not simply about regulating the business of insurance — or crafting a scheme of universal health insurance coverage — it’s about an individual’s right to choose to participate,”. If this stands through the ultimate Supreme Court challenge, then the government may NEVER coerce its citizens to participate/purchase any good or service. This will be one of the few limitations placed on the Constitution’s “Commerce Clause” that has been used to justify the Federal governments usurping of States and individual citizens rights!
Next up will probably be an appeal by Obama to seek a hearing by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Richmond. There is no doubt that this case, as well as the separate case that has been initiated by 20 other states behind the Florida suit, will go to the Supreme Court. For those on the right who believe in the Constitutional process, this is a slow and painful wait. In the interim, over 200 companies have been given exemptions from Obamacare for the next year. It is time for Obama to stop moving forward with this absurdity until the courts have decided once and for all. Otherwise, Obama will leave a much bigger mess for us to clean up when Obamacare is ultimately set aside by the judicial system. In absence of common sense by Obama, the 112th Congress must do everything in it power to put the brakes on further implementation of Obamacare. If we continue, many fine doctors will have left the profession and other institutions will have made the hard choice of abandoning their endeavors that support the providing of healthcare to us all before Obamacare is finally laid to rest.
