Victory for States’ Rights at the 11th Circuit

Senate Republicans embrace the 11th Circuit Court’s ruling declaring the individual mandate portion of President Obama’s healthcare law unconstitutional.  The opinion decries Obamacare, with Chief Judge Joel Dubina writing,  “The individual mandate exceeds Congress’s enumerated commerce power and is unconstitutional.”  It goes on to state, “This economic mandate represents a wholly novel and potentially unbounded assertion of congressional authority: the ability to compel Americans to purchase an expensive health insurance product they have elected not to buy, and to make them re-purchase that insurance product every month for their entire lives.” 

We are confident this ruling will be upheld in future legal challenges.
