    Richmond, Virginia (CNN) -- A federal appeals court panel expressed strong support Tuesday for the sweeping health care reform bill championed by President Barack Obama. It was the first appellate hearing on the law's constitutionality

    All three judges hearing the case, named to the bench by Democratic presidents, suggested the law is valid, despite objections from the state as well as private groups and individuals.

    Past court rulings have affirmed "the significant federal authority in health care" said Judge Diana Gribbon Motz.

    Judge Andre Davis said, "There was no doubt the individual mandate was necessary to Congress' mandate" in the area of reform legislation, calling the question a "slam dunk" in the federal government's favor.

    Color me shocked.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    And so it goes. This will be interesting to watch.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's just a step towards SCOTUS. Really doesn't matter if they strike it down or praise it in glory.

    2012 is coming either way, adn once the Senate and WH go GOP... Obamacare is a dead duck.

    I don't disagree. As I said, this will be interesting to watch. Each step.
