White House Says Judge's "UnConstitutional" Ruling on Obama Care is "Unconventional".

A Federal Judge yesterday ruled Obama Care is "Unconstitutional". Part of his Reasoning for this was the fact he couldn't see how the Founders of this Great Nation, who fought a Revolution over a Mandated Monopoly on Tea, would create a Country where the Government could Mandate the Citizens to buy Health Care.

While this makes sense to many Ordinary Americans, the President just can't seem to wrap his mind around this concept. According to an Article on CBS News, the White House has said the Ruling is down right "Unconventional" and equates to "Judicial Activism":

"Senior Obama administration officials told reporters late Monday afternoon that a federal judge's ruling deeming the sweeping health care reform law unconstitutional is "well out of the mainstream of judicial opinion" and predicted it would be overturned on appeal.

The officials laid out their case against the ruling, which is grounded in the argument that the mandate that Americans buy health care insurance or pay a fine, on a conference call. They suggested that judge Roger Vinson decision ignored cases that did not fit his conclusion, that a "good deal of it is built on sort of rhetorical conjecture," and that the judge did allow that the federal government has the right to regulate decisions to buy insurance despite his ultimate conclusion.

"The analysis is on the whole is, to put it charitably, unconventional," said one official. Another said repeatedly that it is an "outlier" that contradicts other rulings.

Their complaint that the decision was built in part on conjecture was related to passages like this: "Or, as discussed during oral argument, Congress could require that people buy and consume broccoli at regular intervals...Not only because the required purchases will positively impact interstate commerce, but also because people who eat healthier tend to be healthier, and are thus more productive and put less of a strain on the health care system."

That passage, one official said, "does not in any way fit with a traditional Commerce Clause analysis." The official added: "It's really frankly, as I can tell, a scare tactic, and it's not one that any lawyer of any ideological inclination would recognize."

I never thought I would live to see the day when a President of the United States was in favor of forcing it's Citizens to purchase something.... And when a Judge rightly declares it "Unconstitutional" the President claims that ruling isn't "Main Stream".

Wow... Nice to Know in the Land of the FREE.... FREEDOM isn't considered 'Main Stream' by the President and the Democrats.

You have to remember that thing Obama administration has a socilist mindset...when you understand that anything they do not like is considered "unusual".
