What I said last time still holds: Chill.
Evidently, Judge Vinson ruled PPACA unconstitutional. He specifically cited the lack of a severability clause. I’m not a lawyer, but I still stand behind the following:
- This will come down to the Supreme Court. Every other decision is just prelude.
- The lack of a severability clause is not a death knell for legislation that has parts ruled unconstitutional.
- There are many ways to fix PPACA without a mandate.
