Obamacare Officially Ruled Unconstitutional In At Least One State

A Texas judge ruled Friday that the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare was unconstitutional in light of Congress passing a budget that removes the individual mandate from the original bill.

This is just the next phase in ridding the county of the tragedy that is Obamacare.

According to Fox News,

Texas, along with 19 states, had argued to U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor that they had been hurt by a jump in the amount of people utilizing state-backed insurance. When Congress cut the tax penalty from the program in 2017, the states claimed, it essentially undercut the Supreme Court’s reasoning for finding former President Barack Obama’s signature legislation constitutional in 2012.

“The remainder of the ACA is non-severable from the individual mandate, meaning that the Act must be invalidated in whole,” O’Connor wrote in a 55-page opinion, according to Bloomberg. O’Connor is a conservative Republican appointee who previously blocked other Obama-era policies.

In other words, if the ruling made by the Texas judge stands, then the Affordable Care Act (which it never was) is done. Obama’s great “accomplishment” of his presidency is done away with.

CNN further explains,

The Trump administration said in June that it would not defend several important provisions of Obamacare in court. It agreed that zeroing out the penalty renders the individual mandate unconstitutional but argued that invalidates only the law’s protections of those with pre-existing conditions. These include banning insurers from denying people policies or charging them more based on their medical histories, as well as limiting coverage of the treatment they need.

But the administration maintained those parts of the law were severable and the rest of the Affordable Care Act could remain in place.

And obviously, President Trump was excited about this ruling as all us sensible citizens are. The President had this to say on Twitter,

“As I predicted all along, Obamacare has been struck down as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL disaster! Now Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions. Mitch and Nancy, get it done!” Trump wrote.

He later added, “Wow, but not surprisingly, ObamaCare was just ruled UNCONSTITUTIONAL by a highly respected judge in Texas. Great news for America!”

Today will be a day that is remembered as the day Obama’s so-called legacy legislation was destroyed.
