Oh, the joy!
What the objection to the conferees in the U.S. Senate has wrought is the now legal reality of the ObamaCare law being declared null and void.
No House and Senate conference for ObamaCare meant that the Dems could not insert a severability clause in the bill, which would allow one of the provisions of a law to be declared unconstitutional, but the remaining parts of the bill still be in force.
Not so much now.
Here is what the Florida judge wrote:
“I must reluctantly conclude that Congress exceeded the bounds of its authority in passing the Act with the individual mandate,” Vinson writes. “Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void.”
And what has ObamaCare wrought for the Dems: continued and repeated political pain and suffering.
They lost the U.S. House. They lost Senate seats in Illinois, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
All for what?
The very real legal possibility the law will be declared unconstitutional and null and void.
