Obama Mandate Ruled Unconstitutional

The appeals court in Atlanta has ruled the individual mandate unconconstitutional, but says the rest of the law can stand.

The Affordable Care Act is heading to the Supreme Court. The ruling, which declared the individual mandate unconstitutional but the rest of the law constitutional, makes it somewhat easier for the Supreme Court to overturn the individual mandate, as there’s now plenty of precedent for that, and somewhat harder for them to overturn the whole law, as that would be a very radical move. But either way, it makes it necessary for them to weigh in.
