A U.S. federal judge in Texas ruled Friday that the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, is unconstitutional, VOA news reports.
U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth agreed with a coalition of 20 states that a change in tax law last year eliminating a penalty for not having health insurance invalidates the entire Obamacare law.
O’Connor’s decision is likely to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
As I predicted all along, Obamacare has been struck down as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL disaster! Now Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions. Mitch and Nancy, get it done!
