FL Judge Allows Healthcare Lawsuit To Go Forward.

Fri Oct 15, 2010 7:04 am

Ruling exactly opposite a Judge last week, a Florida Judge has found that the States have a case to be made and has ruled that their lawsuit against the Presidents Healthcare bill can continue forward.

Vinson dismissed four of six claims the states brought against the healthcare law but said he saw grounds to proceed on two counts, including one relating to the way critics say it would force huge new spending by state governments.

On the issue of the so-called "individual mandate," the law's provision that all Americans obtain healthcare insurance, Vinson said the plaintiffs had "most definitely stated a plausible claim" for their objections.

"The power that the individual mandate seeks to harness is simply without prior precedent," he said.


I would hope that the if the GOP wins majorities in the House and Senate next month that come January the President will be in a more reasonable mood to compromise and make changes to the law and the court challenge can be dropped.
Warm winds blowing, heating blue skies, a road that goes forever, I'm going to Texas!
