Judge Rules Health Law Is Constitutional

Health Care Law Ruled Constitutional - NYTimes.com

Quote:
A federal judge in Michigan on Thursday dismissed one of more than 15 legal challenges to the new health care law, becoming the first to rule that the law is constitutional.
Quote:
Judge George C. Steeh of Federal District Court in Detroit ruled that choosing not to obtain insurance qualified as an example of “activities that substantially affect interstate commerce.” That is the standard set by the Supreme Court for Congress’s compliance with the Commerce Clause.
Quote:
Judge Steeh, who was appointed by President Bill Clinton, agreed with the federal government that not obtaining health coverage is effectively an active decision to pay for medical care out of pocket. “These decisions, viewed in the aggregate,” Judge Steeh wrote, “have clear and direct impacts on health care providers, taxpayers and the insured population who ultimately pay for the care provided to those who go without insurance.”

By this judges application of COTUS......one could be required to buy a new car every 5 years due to the affects on interstate commerce of not buying a new car.

Maybe they will make it so not only do you have to buy a vehicle, but a Gov't Motors vehicle?

Re: Judge Rules Health Law Is Constitutional
