RUSH: Nine years ago, the square root of 3, Democrats controlled the House, the Senate, and the White House. At 7 a.m. on Christmas Eve morning, they rammed Obamacare through the Senate. It did not get a single Republican vote in Congress.
Earlier this year, a group of Republican governors and state attorneys general filed a lawsuit. They argued that Obamacare’s “individual mandate,” which forced people to buy health insurance, was unconstitutional. And so was the entire law.
Last Friday, Judge Reed O’Connor of the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Texas ruled in their favor. He found the individual mandate unconstitutional, and he tossed out the entire Obamacare law.
So now comes the guessing game. Some politicians predict O’Connor’s ruling will be overturned. Others predict it will end up at the Supreme Court, and this time the right thing will happen: O’Connor’s ruling will be upheld, and Obamacare will be gone.
All the speculation would be moot if Republicans had simply done what they promised nine years ago, and just repealed the damned thing! What’s so hard to understand about unconstitutional?
