Judge may escalate battle over healthcare reform
MIAMI (Reuters) – A Florida judge could on Monday become the second judge to declare President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law unconstitutional, in the biggest legal challenge yet to federal authority to enact the law.
The judge, Roger Vinson of the U.S. District Court in Pensacola, Florida, was expected to rule on a lawsuit brought by governors and attorneys general from 26 U.S. states, almost all of whom are Republicans. Obama is a Democrat.
The plaintiffs represent more than half the U.S. states, so the Pensacola case has more prominence than some two dozen lawsuits filed in federal courts over the healthcare law.
No specific time has been given for Vinson's ruling, which was unlikely to end the legal wrangling over the contentious reform law, which could well reach the U.S. Supreme Court.
But an aide said he was determined to issue his opinion in the course of Monday on the suit filed on March 23, 2010, just hours after Obama signed the reform into law.

Darn that Constitution thing... how terribly inconvenient it becomes when it prevents one from taking over every aspect of American society.

I guess Obama will need to go ahead and "tear" up the Constitution and declare that its null and void since it doesnt fit in with his czar form of government."An Unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." Jeff Cooper

I hope all the conservatives on the Supreme Court stay alive and healthy long enough to rule on this, because if they don't, Obama's next appointment will tip the balance on this and several other issues.
