SECOND Federal Judge says Health Care Reform Law Unconstitutional
Ideology or just plain dispassionate law?
I tend toward the latter. In a way, I don't think this is a matter of opinion. It IS unconstitutional. But that has rarely mattered before of matters of murkiness where judges who were so inclined would work backwards from a what they felt was an important or needed law and then twist the constitution to underpin it.
We can argue all we want on whether the details of the law make any sense or are necessary, economically speaking, to reach a desired goal. That's another matter. But where that archaic and stubborn document is concerned, I think it's pretty airtight on this matter. But like I said, we will see judges look for justification where there is little to none because they like the law.
