BOOM: Federal Judge Rules Obamacare is Unconstitutional


A federal judge in Texas ruled Friday that Obamacare was illegal under the U.S. Constitution throwing enrollments in the plan into uncertainty.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth made his ruling Friday after a group of Republican states led by Texas filed suit against the federal government saying that it was unconstitutional to force Americans to buy a product — which Obamacare does by mandating that each American have medical insurance.

President Donald Trump hailed the decision in a December 14 tweet:

Conservatives always said it had to be unconstitutional for Obama to force Americans to buy something (Obamacare made it compulsory to buy insurance), but when the issue was placed before the Supreme Court, traitorous Chief Justice John Roberts used legal chicanery to deem Obamacare a “tax” instead of commerce allowing the government to move ahead with the take over of the nation’s healthcare system.

But now, Judge O’Connor has come down on the right side of this legal point and deemed the law unconstitutional.

According to Bloomberg:

The White House said the ruling will be put on hold during an appeals process that’s destined to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, drawing confirmation from Democrats vowing a rapid appeal. It has “no impact to current coverage or coverage in a 2019 plan,” Seema Verma, administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said on Twitter.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth agreed with a coalition of Republican states led by Texas that the Affordable Care Act, the signature health-care overhaul by President Barack Obama, needed to be eviscerated after Congress last year zeroed out a key provision — the tax penalty for not complying with the requirement to buy insurance.

Naturally, Democrats are racing to try and address this ruling that they disagree with.

“Today’s ruling is an assault on 133 million Americans with preexisting conditions, on the 20 million Americans who rely on the ACA’s consumer protections for health care, and on America’s faithful progress toward affordable health care for all Americans,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Friday afternoon.

Undoubtedly, the Democrats will now try to find some compliant, left-wing judge to agree with them and shoot down the Friday ruling.

Democrat leadership in Congress also decried the ruling with both Sen. Schumer (D, NY) and House Leader Pelosi (D, CA) slamming the ruling.

Regardless, this Texas judge has it right. Obamacare is an abomination and should be eliminated.
