Federal Judge Says Health-Care Reform is Unconstitutional

by

A federal judge in Florida sided with Idaho and 25 other states in their effort to derail the Affordable Care Act.

U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson ruled—without a full trial—that opponents to the overhaul of the nation's health-care system violated "people's rights by forcing them to buy health insurance." Simply put, Vinson said the reform is unconstitutional. The case is now expected to make its way to a high-profile battle before the U.S. Supreme Court.
