King: ObamaCare Struck Down by Federal Court

Federal Judge rules ObamaCare unconstitutional in its entirety

Congressman Steve King released the following statement after United States District Court Judge Roger Vinson struck down ObamaCare in its entirety. Vinson ruled today that the “individual mandate” provision of the law is unconstitutional and that since it cannot be severed from the rest of the law, the entire act must fall.

“Two weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed language I authored repealing ObamaCare ‘as if such act had not been enacted,’ and now Judge Vinson has similarly ruled that the entire act must be struck down,” said King. “Today’s ruling is important not only because it backs up the earlier decision in Virginia declaring the ‘individual mandate’ to be unconstitutional, but also because it goes one step further by declaring all of ObamaCare to be void. Many of us opposed ObamaCare in part because of our oath to the Constitution. Any member who had reservations should now be empowered to vote with those of us who will cut off all funding to ObamaCare starting with the continuing resolution.”
