Florida Case Proceeding

leave a comment »

Great blog from Heritage on the Florida decision to allow the legal challenge to Obamacare to proceed. Check out this quote:

“Congress should not be permitted to secure and cast politically difficult votes on controversial legislation by deliberately calling something one thing, after which the defenders of that legislation take an “Alice-in-Wonderland” tack and argue in court that Congress really meant something else entirely, thereby circumventing the safeguard that exists to keep their broad power in check.”

South Carolina is one of 20 states suing the federal government because Obamacare arguably violates the Constitution, going far beyond the Commerce Clause’s intended meaning.
