Obama Asks for Expedited ObamaCare Ruling; ObamaCare Is Still Unconstitutional

The Obama administration has asked that the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals expedite their decision of Obama’s appeal of Judge Vinson’s ruling that overturned ObamaCare.

Bill Wilson, President of Americans for Limited Government, said “The Obama administration blinked on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. Today is a major victory for Judge Vinson and the American people.  Judge Vinson’s recent ruling in Florida declaring ObamaCare unconstitutional has forced the Administration to fast track the decision on the legality of the law, instead of playing their planned stall game. Judge Vinson should be praised for forcing the Obama administration to recognize the legitimacy of his ruling.”

In late January, Judge Roger Vinson declared ObamaCare unconstitutional in his decision in the case of Florida et al v. United States Department of Health and Human Services. Immediately following that ruling, Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen declared that his state would cease all actions pertaining to the implementation of ObamaCare. Because Judge Vinson’s ruling declared ObamaCare unconstitutional, the ObamaCare legislation that was signed into law last year is no longer the law of the land.

Bill Wilson said that he is “[looking] forward to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upholding Judge Vinson’s decision that declared ObamaCare unconstitutional.”

Oral arguments in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals are expected to begin early this summer. The only court that could issue a ruling above the 11th Circuit is the Supreme Court. The day when ObamaCare will finally meet its demise once and for all is fast approaching.
