Judges Appointed by Obama Toss Out ObamaCare Lawsuit


The Fourth Circuit’s rulings today in no way affect any other case and should only speed up the Supreme Court’s ultimate consideration of the issues raised in all these challenges.  The dismissal of Virginia’s lawsuit on standing grounds merely removes one particular plaintiff from consideration, even as 26 states and numerous non-state plaintiffs remain in separate suits.  Similarly, the dismissal of Liberty University’s lawsuit, while interesting in that it marks the first-ever finding that the individual mandate is a tax (not for constitutional purposes, but statutorily in a way that cannot be challenged before it’s enforced), doesn’t change the jurisprudential calculus because there was already a split between the Sixth and Eleventh Circuits on the mandate’s constitutionality.  Via Cato-at-Liberty.org

One thought on “Judges Appointed by Obama Toss Out ObamaCare Lawsuit

  1. Hell, there won’t be any rules here – we’re attempting to accomplish something.
    Exactly what is the subject of life – to obtain rich? All of those fellows out there getting rich could possibly be dancing throughout the real subject of life.
