Hallelujah! But the Fight is Far From Over

Judge torpedoes Obamacare, warns of 'unbridled fed police'
"A thorough survey of pertinent constitutional case law has yielded no reported decisions from any federal appellate courts extending the Commerce Clause or General Welfare Clause to encompass regulation of a person's decision not to purchase a product, notwithstanding its effect on interstate commerce or role in a global regulatory scheme," the judge said.

And he warned, "The unchecked expansion of congressional power to the limits suggested by the Minimum Essential Coverage Provision would invite unbridled exercise of federal police powers."
The judge said the mandate "is neither within the letter nor the spirit of the Constitution."
