President Obama can't expand health care coverage and then mandate every American purchase coverage to subsidize the added costs, a group suing to block Mr. Obama's health care law said Monday as it laid out arguments in advance of a landmark Supreme Court case scheduled to be heard next month.
President Obama's administration and opponents of his health care law filed their first briefs on Friday, drawing the legal battle lines for a week of arguments in March in which the Supreme Court will scrutinize challenges to Mr. Obama's signature legislative achievement.
An appeals court struck a blow to a controversial part of President Obama's health care law requiring individuals to either buy health insurance or pay a penalty, ruling Friday that the mandate was unconstitutional but allowing the rest of the law to stand.
Virginia put a whammy on Obamacare this week by winning a federal court ruling saying the "individual mandate" is unconstitutional. Today's oral arguments in a separate case in a Florida federal court promise to make it a double-whammy.
A federal court judge in Florida ruled Thursday that key portions of a lawsuit challenging the Obama administration's health care reform law can go forward, and accused the Justice Department of taking an 'Alice-in-Wonderland' approach to its defense of the controversial "penalty" for people who don't buy insurance.
"This day will go down in history as the day when Americans lost a part of their freedom - the freedom to choose what they want to buy with their own money," said Karen Harned, executive director of NFIB's Small Business Legal Center.
