Challenging "Obamacare": Va. Court Frames The Issues
By Gene Berardelli
For those of you who are interested in the debate over the constitutionality of "Obamacare", I encourage you to read Judge Henry Hudson's Decision - the first of what will probably be many opinions offered by multiple courts.
While steeped in the examination of federal jurisdiction and the sufficiency of this legal claim that was the primary issue before the Court, I think that Judge Hudson does a very good job of framing the new legal issues that the Federal Courts will be wrestling with for a while, specifically its discussion of the Commerce Clause.
