Federal court finds individual mandate unconstitutional, leaves remainder of law intact

by Dara Kam | August 12th, 2011

Striking a blow to the White House, a federal appeals court ruled Friday that President Barack Obama’s health care law requiring Americans to buy health insurance is unconstitutional.

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta also found that the remainder of the law can remain intact.

Florida former attorney general Bill McCollum launched the lawsuit against the federal government over the sweeping law. Twenty-five other states have since joined the suit, now likely headed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Rick Scott announced that he pays $400 a year for health insurance for his wife and himself TOTAL!The rich pig and his sow don’t even need health insurance. He made a lot of money taking from his other companies by reaching his corrupt hands into the till!
