    Federal appeals court rules Obama health care rule constitutional

    Federal appeals court in Cincinnati upholds Obama health care law, becoming 1st to rule - The Washington Post

    CINCINNATI — In the first ruling by a federal appeals court on President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, a judicial panel in Cincinnati on Wednesday affirmed an earlier ruling that Congress can require Americans to have minimum insurance coverage.

    You think this isn't going to SCOTUS?

    Here's the opinion.

    Sure... they will probably rule it constitutional though. If a Republican justice said it was constitutional, I doubt Anthony Kennedy is going to say it isn't constitutional.

    The 2-1 majority opinion was written by a Jimmy Carter appointee and agreed with by a George W. Bush appointee. The dissenting judge was appointed by Ronald Reagan.

    I'm glad to know that you can read the minds of the SCOTUS. It's an amazing skill.

    I hope you feel happy that the judges of the land can't read or understand intent. I know I'm feeling so jolly the literately level of Americans is so low that simple sentence are hard to understand for appointed judges.

    It'll definitely go to SCOTUS.

    No problem. This is what they do. SCOTUS will shut it down. If not it will be defunded. The new POTUS in 2012 may have something to say about it, too.
    I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.

    You don't think it's notable that a Bush appointee thinks it is constitutional? If this was "Bill Clinton appointee, carter appointee, Obama appointee, 3-0, constitutional" it'd be no big deal.
