Texas Judge Rules Obamacare Unconstitutional

By Sean Moran

A Texas federal judge on Friday ruled that Obamacare violated the Constitution, likely pushing the ruling towards the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Judge Reed O’Connor, a U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Texas appointed by former President George W. Bush, ruled that Obamacare violated the Constitution.

Twenty Republican state attorneys general brought the suit, Texas v. Azar, who asked the court to rule that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) violates the Constitution after Republicans managed to zero out Obamacare’s individual mandate penalty with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act last year. The judge ruled that the law’s individual mandate violates the Constitution and therefore the entire ACA violates the Constitution.

This has been a no brainer from day one. And it took the blood sucking attornies to do it. Thank you gentlemen. Ive paid for my insurance for years before I finally retired. It was hard enough before being a single mom, but after Obamacare, I couldnt even afford to use my insurance I was paying through the nose for. And if an emergency came up , the insurance company just denied claims for half the cost and I got to pay it out anyway.

Now it may be in the hands of a democrat dominated house of representatives to develop a replacement for 0’Care.

Good luck America, that they will consider what’s best for their constituents.
