    By Noon Tommorow, ObamaCare Could Be Dealt a Death-Blow

    A Virginia judge is poised to rule on the constitutionality of the individual health-care mandate. Based on his response to the Obama administration motion to dismiss, it is expected that he will rule that forcing citizens to purchase "approved" health-care or pay a stiff fine goes beyond Congress' enumerated power to regulate interstate commerce.

    His ruling is expected tomorrow morning.

    This is the lynch-pin of the whole mess. If individuals can opt out of Obama's machinations (without penalty), the vast majority of Americans will do so, choosing plans that will have much lower premiums (since they won't cover preexisting conditions). Also, many folks will opt for no insurance, choosing to wait until a condition preexists, and then buy an "approved" plan. Such cannot be economically sustained and will collapse--as it should.

    Please keep us updated when you hear of the ruling.
    This could prove very interesting.

    I think I remember something about a judge in Florida saying it is Constitutional. Can't remember where though. I don't really have time to look for it at the moment.

    One says yes, another says no. It's going to SCOTUS. They'll almost have to accept a hearing on it.

    Have not seen this anywhere on any major network on tv. Thanks for the heads up.
