Sane People Win One in Healthcare Fight

Sphere: Related Content

It's a small but hopefully first victory against the bill that will simultaneously destroy the economy and the best healthcare system in the world:

This just in: Virginia federal judge Henry Hudson on Monday ruled that he’ll let the state of Virginia’s challenge to the landmark health care law passed in March go forward, at least for the time being. Click here for the early Reuters story; here for the 32-page opinion.

The Department of Health and Human Services had moved to dismiss the lawsuit, which was filed in March (click here for the complaint), shortly after the passage of the law. But Judge Hudson on Monday denied the motion.

The ruling represents a setback that will force the Obama administration to mount a lengthy legal defense of the law. The suit, filed by Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (pictured), alleges that the law’s requirement that its residents have health insurance violates the Commerce Clause of the Constitution.
And how did the Nobama administration respond? By comparing the bill and the court challenge in historical terms right up with the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. Note Ms. Cutter doesn't say that it wasn't Republicans who challenged those two pieces of legislation but Democrats led by Al Gore, Sr. and Clinton mentor William Fulbright...but I digress.

The healthcare bill was rammed through using sleazy tactics, bribes, hidden costs we are no where near counting up and all while giving the majority of Americans the finger. We don't want it but according to the "intellectuals" in power, we aren't smart enough to know just how great this is for us.

The GOP has to make this topic 1, 1A and 1B the entire fall. Make the Dems wallow in their choices and squirm at every opportunity just like last year. Make Steny Hoyer eat his words about the Tea Party having "run its course".

Hopefully it comes down to Justices Alito, Thomas, Roberts, Scalia and Stevens shutting the door on this monstrosity once and for all.

I wonder if Virginia would loan Cuccinelli to Minnesota after they've won their case? Probably not, but at least a win would open the door for others to do the same. :) Obamacare is a poison.
