Can you believe this!
Not constitutional! Not constitutional!! Obamacare not constitutional, my shiny backside!
Who appointed this judge any way? **
And since when does anyone have a problem with making people do things for their own good anyway?
“She’d have the government force that every individual buy insurance and I don’t have such a mandate because I don’t think the problem is that people don’t want health insurance, it’s that they can’t afford it.
I focus more on lowering costs. This is a modest difference. But, it’s one that she’s (Hillary) tried to elevate, arguing that because I don’t force people to buy healthcare that I’m not insuring everybody. If things were that easy, I could mandate everybody to buy a house, and that would solve the problem of homelessness. It doesn’t.”

UPDATED WITH BIG GUY’S OWN WORDS:
And what’s this about the “severability clause” not being in the bill – it’s ALWAYS in the bills passed by the House! Oh.
In his 78-page ruling, Judge Vinson wrote that the entire law must be voided because the individual insurance mandate is "not severable" from the rest of the law. Some laws contain what's known as a severability clause that says the rest of the law stands should a judge strike down a piece of it. But Democrats left it out.
I forgot. Nancy did warn us that we had to pass the bill in order to find out what was, and what was NOT in the bill.
Butt here’s our plan: the Big White is going to ignore the ruling and carry on with the implementation of all parts of the bill that provide benefits to anyone before the 2012 election, in order to lock up their votes. We won’t implement any of the
rationing spending constraints, or reveal the huge deficits caused by the bill’s real costs until we are re-elected and everyone else is screwed covered by Obamacare.
This puppy’s headed to the Supremes. I think you can see now why it’s so important for us to finish stacking the court with our left-thinking allies. If we can’t get rid of one of those moderate-to-right-thinking jurists before Obamacare lands there, the Supremes are likely to rule against us.
And if that happens we’ll just have to adopt Chuckie Schummer’s reworked power structure: “you know, we have three branches of government. We have a House. We have a Senate. We have a president.” Seriously, where do all these brilliant politicians come from? Oh, that’s right, Harvard Law School.
** Judge Vinson was appointed by Ronald Reagan. As if you didn’t know that.
