<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">A federal judge in Florida on Thursday said he will allow some of the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the health care law to proceed — and criticized Democrats for making an “Alice in Wonderland” argument to defend the law.

U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson allowed two major counts to proceed: the states’ challenge to the controversial requirement that nearly all Americans buy insurance and a required expansion of the Medicaid program.

In his ruling, Vinson criticized Democrats for seeking to have it both ways when it comes to defending the mandate to buy insurance. During the legislative debate, Republicans chastised the proposal as a new tax on the middle class. Obama defended the payment as a penalty and not a tax, but the Justice Department has argued that legally, it’s a tax.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>“Congress should not be permitted to secure and cast politically difficult votes on controversial legislation by deliberately calling something one thing, after which the defenders of that legislation take an “Alice-in-Wonderland” tack and argue in court that Congress really meant something else entirely, thereby circumventing the safeguard that exists to keep their broad power in check,”</span> he wrote.

Vinson ruled that it’s a penalty, not a tax, and must be defended under the Commerce Clause and not Congress’s taxing authority.

This is why the left hates judges who make rulings based on that pesky constitution.

I'm still looking for any law that gives Washington the power to force the public to purchase any product.

Maybe someone from the Obama camp could point me in the right direction.

According to the USA founding documents, the only way Obama can gain such power is to grant him divinity ... which sadly many on the far left have done.

A lot of what emanates from our Justice Department has an Alice-in-wonderland' quality to it. I have the feeling that it is all those super high IQs that surround The Moron that are just beyond my understanding. Though it is more than just me that has that opinion.

Don't short yourself.

The regime's attorneys are nothing more than propagandists who work with the knowledge that a string of $20.00 words will keep the nutty 25% amazed and nodding their collectivist heads in unison.
