DC Judge Rules For ObamaCare, Constitutional

Every year, I lose a little more respect for Federal judges. All too often, they decide on the result and come up with whatever logic they can to justify it. But then again, Dred Scott and Slaughterhouse come to mind.

Judge Kessler finds that individual mandate is constitutional.
It is pure semantics to argue that an individual who makes a choice to forgo health insurance is not “acting,†especially given the serious economic and health-related consequences to every individual of that choice. Making a choice is an affirmative action, whether one decides to do something or not do something. They are two sides of the same coin. To pretend otherwise is to ignore reality. ... titutional
Got that? Deciding not to do something is really deciding to do not something. An "active" choice. Something that can be regulated.

Under this logic, the government can compel me to buy anything if it's for the good of the economy with "economic consequences for every individual". Socialist logic at its finest.

I think there have been two or three federal judges that have decided it was unconstitutional and two or three have said it was. Regardless, this is heading for the Supreme Court, probably just in time for the 2012 election and if ruled unconstitutional, Obama will rail against a supreme court that isn't 'representative' and that changes need to be made.
