Kill Obamacare

Round one. After 30 challenges to Obamacare 3 members of the 6th U.S. Circuit Federal appeals court in Cincinnati, by a split vote, just voted to uphold the Obama health care law. That old saying that one man can make a difference came into play this morning based on the 2-1 split vote to support Obamacare.
Don’t get too excited folks. This issue will end up in the U.S. Supreme Court. I don’t think Vegas would give odds against the last call for this major illegal mandate on all Americans.

Quoting from the AP. “A conservative law center had challenged the measure, arguing on behalf of plaintiffs who said potentially being required to buy insurance or face penalties was subjecting them to financial hardship. They warned that the law was too broad and could lead to more federal mandates.

The Thomas More Law Center, based in Ann Arbor, Mich., argued before the panel that the law was unconstitutional and that Congress overstepped its powers.

Judge Boyce F. Martin, appointed by former President Jimmy Carter, wrote for the majority in the 2-1 ruling.

A George W. Bush appointee concurred; a Ronald Reagan appointee who is a U.S. district judge in Columbus sitting on the panel disagreed. Judges are selected for panels through random draw.”
