Ever since it passed, the national health care law commonly known as ObamaCare has been entangled in legal battles and heated national debate. As polls have consistently shown, a majority of the public remains opposed to the law and many are worried because they never found out what was even in it.
While the law has spurred countless news stories, a recent one you may have missed involved the attorney David Rivkin, who successfully led the multi-state challenge to ObamaCare filed in Florida. A prominent conservative voice, Rivkin has been a staunch defender of the Constitution in a variety of cases, but he admitted the health care law challenge was the most important of his life.
Through his early op-ed articles in The Wall Street Journal, Rivkin was the first person to begin the legal argument against the national health care reform on the grounds of its core individual mandate being unconstitutional. Since then, he has publicly called this law the most unconstitutional in history because of how it fundamentally redefines the governments role in our lives and theoretically makes it possible for the government to mandate that Americans buy virtually anything.
While Democrats and liberal professors mocked this argument early on, Rivkin stayed the course, and his reasoning has so far persuaded two federal judges in Virginia and Florida to agree. No longer does anyone take this sound legal argument lightly.
