Yep. Not severable. The judge says the whole damned thing—3000 pages or whatever it is—is unconstitutional.

Hallellujiah! We still need to defund and repeal it, while the Big O appeals this decision. But it should make it a lot harder for them to slide things through that are harder to reverse.

Now...if only a judge (or two or three) would declare “Obama and his administration (czars) are unconstitutional and must be declared void.”

One can dream, can’t they?

The appeal will go to the 11th Circuit first, which will take 1-2 years.

The Obama justice department does NOT want to fast-track the appeal to the USSC because they are hoping Justice Kennedy will retire or die, allowing BO to get his 5th vote for this monstrosity.

The 2012 election is still critical.

Born in Cadiz, Kentucky, Vinson attended the United States Naval Academy and graduated in 1962 with a bachelor’s degree in engineering. He served at Naval Air Station Pensacola as a Naval aviator from 1962–1968, attaining the rank of lieutenant. After his service, he attended Vanderbilt University and received his J.D. in 1971.

Returning to Pensacola, Florida, Vinson joined the law firm of Beggs & Lane, where he practiced general civil law from 1971–1983. He was nominated to the federal bench by President Ronald Reagan on September 9, 1983 to a seat vacated by Lynn C. Higby, was confirmed by the Senate on October 4, and received his commission a day later. Among the notable cases he has presided over:

Four defendants of abortion clinic bombing, 1985[1]
Escambia County, Florida ordinance banning The Last Temptation of Christ, 1988[2]
Shoney’s $134 million race discrimination settlement, 1993[3]
Paul Jennings Hill (federal Clinic Access Law charges), 1994[4]
Sentenced Financial Manager Marcus Schrenker, who attempted to fake his own death by parachuting out of his plane after charges were brought against him for securities fraud, to four years in federal prison in 2009.[5]
Vinson was chief judge from 1997 to 2004. He assumed senior status on March 31, 2005.

He was appointed to serve a seven-year term on the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court, effective May 4, 2006.[6] In 2009 he was installed as president of the American Camellia Society.[7]

In 2010, Vinson was assigned to hear a case brought by a group of 20 states that was filed with support by 16 attorneys generals and four governors challenging the constitutionality of the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s requirement that most individuals obtain medical insurance. The suit is the second of more than 15 lawsuits filed against the act that has advanced to this stage of litigation.[8]

On January 31, 2011, Vinson ruled that the entire Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act was unconstitutional. [9]

535 Senators and Representatives are breathing a sigh of relief.

Politicians will do anything to avoid confronting ObamaCare.

They will gladly let the Judicial System kill ObamaCare.

Now that ObamaCare is soon near its burial, it is very important for the House of Representatives to DEFUND the monster.

There is no need to spend any money whatsoever on a law that will soon be declared uncontstitutional by a Circuit Court of Appeal and then by SCOTUS.

There is no ability to proceed on implementing this law unless there was a stay of the ruling issued by the appeals court. As of this moment, there is no law to be implemented. Thus I think Obama will want a fast track.

Bravo.

Yanno, Prohibition was repealed but it spawned a number of criminal enterprises that are still with us before the law fell.

Obamacare is and will do the same. Crush it now before any more damage is done.

I agree that this will be great, if Obamacare get’s thrown out on constitutional grounds. But what about being forced to buy Medicare when you turn 65? How is that contstitutional?
