Maybe that explains why they're so dour and boring.

Correction--$12 per month. I didn't realize it was a 3 month supply.

Appeals court rules against Obama healthcare mandate - Yahoo!

Appeals court rules against Obama healthcare mandate

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's healthcare law suffered a setback Friday when a U.S. appeals court ruled that it was unconstitutional to require all Americans to buy insurance or face a penalty.

The Appeals Court for the 11th Circuit, based in Atlanta, found that Congress exceeded its authority by requiring Americans to buy coverage, but also reversed a lower court decision that threw out the entire healthcare law.

"This economic mandate represents a wholly novel and potentially unbounded assertion of congressional authority: the ability to compel Americans to purchase an expensive health insurance product they have elected not to buy, and to make them re-purchase that insurance product every month for their entire lives," the majority said in its opinion.
After this week I wonder what the president's comfort food is?

Interesting how you're not crowing about activist judges when you agree with a decision...

It appears these judges actually read the Constitution. I know... who does that?

Quote:
“We have not found any generally applicable, judicially enforceable limiting principle that would permit us to uphold the mandate without obliterating the boundaries inherent in the system of enumerated congressional powers”
And you know what they say about powers not delegated to the federal government by the Constitution:

Quote:
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Of course I speak of the actual Constitution, not the "living Constitution" which liberal judges pull rights out of like rabbits from a hat.

Fixed that for you.

No fix necessary.

Article 5 spells out the requirements to amend the Constitution.

The enemy of the insurance industry is confidence. Fear from people, on the other hand, is what keeps them in business. If everybody would quit their fear of not having health insurance (and quit their current policy also), the health insurance industry would collapse and it would bring remarkable and potential benefits for many people who either don't have insurance or pay too much for it.

This same scenario would apply to any sphere of insurance, whether it is auto, rental, homeowner's, etc.

Explain to us how this would bring "remarkable benefits".

A better question is...anyone, offer a Constitutional argument for this mandate.

The Constitution connects itself to the Declaration of Independence which defines certain unalieable rights, the first one being "life". I can't think of anything more important to life, than proper healthcare.
