Breathtakingly sweeping ruling based on sophistry. This should go well!

Federal judge in Texas rules Obama health-care law unconstitutional
A federal judge in Texas threw a dagger on Friday into the Affordable Care Act, ruling that the entire health-care law is unconstitutional because of a recent change in federal tax law.

The opinion by U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor overturns all of the sprawling law nationwide. ]

The ruling came on the eve of the deadline for Americans to sign up for coverage in the federal insurance exchange created under the law.

Since the suit was filed in January, many health-law specialists have viewed its logic as weak but nevertheless have regarded the case as the greatest looming legal threat to the 2010 law, which has been a GOP whipping post ever since and assailed repeatedly in the courts.

This judge routinely tries to legislate from the bench and gets shot down. :shrug:

It's an absurd ruling that this clown has been sitting on since before the election (for obvious partisan reasons). Yes, it'll get slapped down.
