Court Quotes Idaho Health Freedom Act in Striking Down Health Care Law

Florida Federal Judge Roger Vinson specifically quoted the Idaho Health Freedom Act in recognizing legal standing held by … read more states to challenge the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare). Judge Vinson went on to rule in his January 31, 2011 opinion that the personal mandate to buy insurance is unconstitutional. He further found that the mandate could not be severed from the whole act, and declared the entire law unconstitutional. Idaho’s law was critical, because it was only one of three that were passed prior to President Obama signing the Federal law. I am pleased to have been the drafter of the Idaho Health Freedom Act, and applaud the expeditious manner in which our legislature passed the law, Governor Otter signed the law, and attorney General Wasden pursued the dictates of the law through the Florida lawsuit.
