ObamaCare ruling appealed by Justice Department

While President Obama’s Justice Department decided to give up its defense of DOMA, it jumped to the defense of its crown jewel, ObamaCare, the government takeover of healthcare. In fact they are seeking an expedited appeal of U.S. District Judge C. Roger Vinson’s ruling that struck down ObamaCare as being unconstitutional.

In an emailed statement, lawyers for the federal government said they are asking the U.S. Court of Appeals in Atlanta to speed its review of the January 31 decision. Vinson found unconstitutional the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act provision requiring individuals to procure insurance coverage starting in 2014. He also concluded that the requirement could not be severed from the rest of the law, invalidating ObamaCare in its entirety.

The lawsuit was originally brought by the Florida Attorney General, and was joined by twenty-five other states.
