Texas Judge Rules Obamacare Unconstitutional
14 Dec 2018

A Texas federal judge on Friday ruled that Obamacare violated the Constitution, likely pushing the ruling towards the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Judge Reed O?Connor, a U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Texas appointed by former President George W. Bush, ruled that Obamacare violated the Constitution.

Twenty Republican state attorneys general brought the suit, Texas v. Azar, who asked the court to rule that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) violates the Constitution after Republicans managed to zero out Obamacare?s individual mandate penalty with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act last year. The judge ruled that the law?s individual mandate violates the Constitution and therefore the entire ACA violates the Constitution.

Judge O?Connor acknowledged that health care is a ?politically charged affair ? inflaming emotions and testing civility.?

However, O?Connor added that the courts ?are not tasked with, nor are they suited to, policymaking.?

O?Connor said that because the individual mandate is ?essential? to the rest of the ACA, all of Obamacare is invalid.

?Congress stated many times unequivocally ? through enacted text signed by the president ? that the individual mandate is ?essential? to the ACA,? O?Connor wrote. ?And this essentiality, the ACA?s text makes clear, means the mandate must work ?together with the other provisions? for the Act to function as intended.?

Federal judge in Texas rules Affordable Health Care Act unconstitutional
Ruling comes on eve of the deadline for Americans to sign up for coverage in the federal insurance exchange created under the law.

WASHINGTON ? A conservative federal judge in Texas on Friday ruled the Affordable Care Act ?invalid? on the eve of the sign-up deadline for next year. But with appeals certain, even the Trump White House said the law will remain in place for now.

In a 55-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Reed O?Connor ruled that last year?s tax cut bill knocked the constitutional foundation from under ?Obamacare? by eliminating a penalty for not having coverage. The rest of the law cannot be separated from that provision and is therefore invalid, he wrote.

Supporters of the law immediately said they would appeal. ?Today?s misguided ruling will not deter us: our coalition will continue to fight in court for the health and wellbeing of all Americans,? said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is leading a coalition of states defending the ACA.
