Unreal… White House Calls Obamacare Ruling Judicial Overreach
U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson ruled today that Obamacare is unconstitutional.
The White House today said the Obamacare ruling by Judge Roger Vinson was a plain case of judicial overreach.
Earlier today Judge Roger Vinson ruled that the health reform legislation passed last year is unconstitutional. Not surprisingly this evoked a harsh reaction from the administration, which does not want to its main domestic accomplishment during the President’s first two years in office to be nullified by the courts.
On the White House’s blog, spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter writes: “Today’s ruling – issued by Judge Vinson in the Northern District of Florida – is a plain case of judicial overreaching.” She continues: “Those who claim that the “individual responsibility” provision exceeds Congress’ power to regulate interstate commerce because it penalizes “inactivity” are simply wrong. Individuals who choose to go without health insurance are actively making an economic decision that impacts all of us.”
Nice work, democrats… You blew a year on your nationalized health care plan and its unconstitutional.
