“Clarification” order scolds DOJ to hurry up, then gives license to implement a law he deems unconstitutional
The only hope We the People had of preventing the solidification of socialized medicine pending a definitive ruling on President Barack Obama’s signature hope and change law no less than two years from now by the nation’s highest court, died last week at the hands of the man that had threatened to kill the administration’s assault on private health insurance dead in its tracks.
Federal U.S. District Court Judge Roger Vinson had declared the entire health care bill unconstitutional, null and void on January 31, thus presenting the prospect that before the tentacles of the federal government could wrap themselves around one-sixth of the U.S. economy it would have to first prove its case to at least five justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.
A month passed in which several of the 26 State plaintiffs in the Florida case declared they would no longer implement the law Judge Vinson declared unconstitutional as Attorney General Eric Holder treated the 78-page order as no more consequential than a New York Times op-ed. Last month, Obama’sDepartment of Justice interrupted their contempt of Vinson’s jurisprudence by adding insult to injury with a motion to “clarify”, rather than take the usual course and ask for a “stay” of the ruling.
