Judge rules ObamaCare (PL 111-148) may force Colorado and other states to spend more on Medicaid
A Florida Federal District Judge who today ruled ObamaCare (PL 111-148) is unconstitutional because it mandates that all Americans must buy government-approved health insurance also ruled that the law's provisions that force states to spend more on Medicaid is constitutional according to case law. The only thing that will save the states on the Medicaid issue is the judge's ruling that the unconstitutionality of the mandates makes the whole law unconstitutional. Links: Decision on Florida v. DHHS. Scholars, politicians discuss the ruling here.
