Obamacare Dealt Another Blow from Judge Vinson

You wouldn't know it by listening to the liberal media, but Judge Roger Vinson made his ruling clear on the Obama Justice Department's motion to clarify.  Judge Vinson ruled Obamacare, cheerfully called the Affordable Care Act, unconstitutional in the Florida lawsuit that included 26 states - this isn't half of the country because President Obama believes there are 57 states.  The administration is trying to stall the case from reaching the Supreme Court, so they can implement as much as possible, making it harder to disassemble.  Yesterday, Obamacare was dealt another blow.

Two weeks after the ruling was made, the Obama administration filed an "insulting" motion to clarify.  The purpose of this was to stall and make a point that, under the Obama regime, the government wouldn't comply with the ruling.  It's the standard philosophy of a liberal:  The laws don't apply to me if I don't agree with them.  Watching the news would lead one to believe that Judge Vinson was wrong in his ruling.  Conservative talk show host Mark Levin and The Heritage Foundation dissected Vinson's order and the result was clear: Speed up appeal or stop implementing Obamacare.

"It was not expected that they would effectively ignore the order and declaratory judgement for 2 1/2 weeks, continue to implement the act, and only then file a belated motion to 'clarify.'"

That's the gist of the situation, which the liberal media intentionally distorted.  The administration has been stalling because they know what the inevitable is going to be.  This is also the reason that President Obama said he would allow states to opt-out of the abortion known as Obamacare, as long as they had a better and cheaper plan.  He's looking for ways to get re-elected; he knows the overwhelming majority of Americans want the law repealed.

"[It] seems to be plain and unambigious.  Even though I expressly declared that the entire Act was 'void,' and even though I emphasized that 'separate injunctive relief is not necessary' only because it must be presumed that 'the Executive Branch will adhere to the law as declared by the court,' which means that 'declaratory judgement is the functional equivalent of an injunction,' the defendants have indicated that they 'do not interpret the Court's order as requiring them to immediately cease [implementing and enforcing the act].'"

The Obama administration moved forward as if there wasn't a ruling by a federal judge.  Again, the laws don't apply to the Left if it's not in their favor.

As The Heritage Foundation pointed out, this was a positive move for America.

"This is a serious strategic loss for the government.  Judge Vinson has challenged the federal government to speed up the appeals process, which would normally take much longer, forcing the hand of the Administration, which would like to slow down the litigation through questionably legal tactics if it can get away with it so it can implement as much of Obamacare as possible before it gets to the Supreme Court."

"[It] is very important to everyone in this country that this case move forward as soon as practically possible."

The ball is in Obama's court - just don't expect his administration to follow the rules.
